Giga (ギガ) is a dark green Makai Armor that specializes in axe combat. Whoever wields the armor will take the title of Giga the Beast Form Knight (獣身騎士・戯牙 Jūshin Kishi Giga, lit. "Frolic Fang") or Beast Knight (獣騎士 Kemono Kishi). The armor is currently wielded by Daigo Akizuki.
Description & CharacteristicsEdit
The Giga Armor is an ornate, heavy plated, green and gold Makai Armor. True to its title, the Beast Form Knight or simply Beast Knight, the armor's design and aesthetics are somewhat themed after a beast resembling the cross between a wolf and an armored reptile, giving it its monstrous appearance.
While other knights employ the Blazing Armament technique in order to increase their combat potential, Giga rarely relies on such technique thanks to its above-average defensive and offensive capabilities. Though, like all makai armors, Giga is still capable of using the Blazing Armament to enhance its combat strength with blue Madō Flames.
Unlike other armors, Giga possesses considerable brute force and greater durability, even more so than Garo. In addition to easily overwhelming and defeating its enemies with sheer might alone, Giga can also endure greater magical and/or physical punishment than other armors thanks to its fortified armor platings, making bearers of this armor a staggering force like a tank. Unfortunately, its fortified armor platings also make Giga somewhat heavier, which often slows the wearer down. As such, Giga is more designed for close quarter combat (CQC) to compensate for its lack of speed; it takes advantage of its high defensive capabilities to draw in the enemy, where the knight can retaliate with great force. For that, Giga's Beast Ax possesses the unique ability to charge up energy and release it in an explosive tectonic shock-wave, powerful enough to instantly destroy weaker surrounding Horrors. However, this move takes a lot of energy for the user; it's used as a last resort to quickly end battles.
Weapons & EquipmentEdit
- Beast Ax: The Beast Ax (獣身斧 Jūshinfu) is Giga's Makai Blade forged in form of a Makai Ax (魔戒斧 Makaifu). In normal conditions, the Beast Ax takes the form of a medium-sized black Makai Ax with a sharp spearhead-like barb, that enables the knight to either stab or hack foes like a halberd. In its activated form, however, it becomes a giant ax with a huge blade like a halberd that can inflict greater damage, swings it and hits it on the ground like a hammer to generate a powerful shock wave in a wide range. When used to summon its armor set, Daigo typically draws a slanted circle around him which then readjust itself above him as he slams the weapon on the ground.
- Giga Claw Gauntlet: Giga possesses a secondary weapon in form of a gigantic claw on its left forearm to stab and slash foes in between throwing hard punches.
