Gigagash is a recurring ability in the Dragon Quest series.


Gigagash is basically an even more powerful version of the Gigaslash ability. The user channels their power through both arms instead of their prime laterality. Furthermore, the power radiating from the ethereal blades shines more brilliantly than before.


Dragon Quest VIII

Making its main series debut, the Hero can learn Gigagash as a sword technique after fully investing 100 skill points into both the Sword and Courage skill trees, replacing Gigaslash. Despite the requirements, the skill can be used with any weapon equipped, and even bare-handed.

Damage is calculated as level+222~282, capping at level 47 for a maximum range of 271~331.

Dragon Quest IX

To use Gigagash, a character must both equip a sword and be carrying the book awarded by the level 40 Sword Skill quest. Its damage output is a base of 185~335 and a maximum range of 445~595, and the caveat about its usability applies with even greater force. Damage improves as the user's magical might and strength increase. Estark can also use this ability against players from level 57 onwards, so caution must be taken.
