Move Cards[]

Spectral Lancer (Jark Lancer)
Four long sheaths grow on the Spectral Armor spikes on Gigas' back, then he runs forward, grabs his opponent with them, and smashes them into a wall! Often, this wall appears out of nowhere and then vanishes after the Move finishes.
Magma Blaster
Gigas shot a beam of fire from his mouth at Chomp and Ace, but they dodged the attack and it hit the trees, sparking a forest fire.

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

Gigas was a Tyrannosaurus altered by Seth to withstand being equipped with his new stronger version of Spectral Armor, which is permanently affixed to him.

He was first summoned by Gabbro at Duke Dumas' chateau in The Wee Musketeers to help Anchiceratops battle the D-Team and Alpha Gang, quickly defeating Spiny with Spectral Lancer. He was hit by Ace's Sonic Blast and Paris' Green Impulse to little effect. After Anchiceratops was defeated and reclaimed by the D-Team, he charged the D-Team's dinos, but was recalled when Gabbro realized that the Cosmos Stone wasn't there. Gigas was summoned later in The Haunted Hunt and battled the Alpha Gang at Vasasi Castle, nearly defeating Terry (who was recalled by Ursula to chase Shear) by knocking him into a wall and Spiny with Spectral Lancer. After blocking a dual attack from Ultimate Water and Ultimate Earth, he successfully defeated Tank with Spectral Lancer, but was worn down after Chomp and Ace joined the battle and eventually defeated when they combined their Ultimate Moves with Spiny's. However, he was reclaimed by Gabbro and reappeared at the very end of the episode alongside Armatus and Maximus to attack the D-Team and Alpha Gang, but after a cliffhanger they were rescued by Jonathan.

In Bad Deal, he was summoned to head off the D-Team from chasing Seth after he stole their two Cosmos Stones, fighting Chomp and Ace, but accidentally lighting a forest fire with Magma Blaster, forcing both sides to retreat. He later helped fight the D-Team in the The Forest Fire Effect/The Search for the Last Cosmos Stone battle in the Stone Age over the Black Cosmos Stone, but was recalled when Brontikens accidentally caused the volcano to erupt. Later in The Search for the Last Cosmos Stone, he was summoned alongside Armatus and Maximus to attack the defecting Seth (who'd now stolen the Space Pirates' Cosmos Stones) and his Cryolophosaurus, but was easily battered around and was frozen in place by Blizzard Smash along with the others.

In Clash for the Cosmos Stones, they caught the D-Team and Alpha Gang in a surprise attack, Gigas defeating Chomp with Spectral Lancer; after merging the Cosmos Stones, they were supercharged by the Dark Pterosaur. In Fate of the Cosmos, they began attacking the city with their Spectral Moves, Gigas driving the D-Team and Alpha Gang away from the wrecked D-Lab. They were later called into the Dark Pterosaur to attack the Backlander; after the Pterosaur began protecting the ship and Maximus and Armatus were defeated, Gigas and Terry charged and defeated each other with Spectral Lancer and Ultimate Fire. What happened to his card afterwards is unclear, but it was probably reclaimed by the D-Team/Alpha Gang.


  • In the dub, when he is first named by Gabbro, he is called "Gigasaurus", likely by dubbing mistake.
  • Gigas's name likely came from the species "Manospondylus gigas", the name given to a theropod that turned out to be the same as Tyrannosaurus, but had been named earlier, meaning "M. gigas" should have had priority over T. rex. However, due to the incomplete nature of its fossils, and the fact that it hadn't been mentioned in scientific documents since before 1899, "M. gigas" was deemed invalid.
  • Gigas's Spectral Armor form is his only form to appear in the Kyoryu-King museum, and it shares the standard Tyrannosaurus roar.
  • In his first few dub appearances (72-75), Gigas has a unique roar that sounded like a pitched version of Terry's. Starting in episode 76, however, it is changed to the roar shared by Saurophaganax's later episodes, Torvosaurus, one of the second Mapusaurus's several roars, Afrovenator, and Rajasaurus.
  • Gigas is the only main dinosaur of the Space Pirates that did not defeat a dinosaur twice. (Armatus defeated Spiny twice and Maximus defeated Terry twice; Brontikens, however, did not defeat a dinosaur at all.)
  • He is the only main dinosaur of the Space Pirates to use an actual Move Card that wasn't a built-in Spectral Move, Magma Blaster.
  • He is the only main dinosaur of the Space Pirates that the Alpha Gang managed to defeat or helped to defeat.
  • He is also the only main dinosaur of the Space Pirates who defeated one of the six main dinosaurs when they had no Element Booster (in his case Spiny in The Wee Musketeers.)
  • Gigas is Chomp's rival in this season just like how Terry was in season one that may suggest that both being Tyrannosaurus who is known to have a personal rivalry with the Triceratops species, Chomp was targeted by him in the Clash of the Cosmos Stone being the second and last dinosaur to defeat him this season the first being Lexovisaurus.
