|Rarity||5 - 6|
Exdeath's bodyguard in another world where tales of the Crystals are told. Although Gilgamesh has enough power to eliminate the entire army of the Bal Kingdom, there is still something off about him. Having been tasked by Exdeath to keep a close watch on the prisoner Bartz and his companions, he eventually found himself cornered by Galuf who was attempting to rescue them. Gilgamesh then fled, but battled the party again once they reached the Big Bridge.

Background Story[edit | edit source]
|5★||Exdeath's bodyguard in another world where tales of the Crystals are told. Although Gilgamesh has enough power to eliminate the entire army of the Bal Kingdom, there is still something off about him. Having been tasked by Exdeath to keep a close watch on the prisoner Bartz and his companions, he eventually found himself cornered by Galuf who was attempting to rescue them. Gilgamesh then fled, but battled the party again once they reached the Big Bridge.|
|6★||Exdeath's most powerful henchman in another world where tales of the Crystals are told. Gilgamesh challenged Bartz and his party to countless fights only to flee from each one of them. Eventually, he even attacked them with a poor replica of the Excalibur, which lead Exdeath to banish him to the Void as a punishment for his incompetence. Although he was tasked with the protection of the legendary Genji equipment, rumor has it that Bartz and his party made off with it in one of their battles against him.|

I am full of good vibes.
Hey who dares stand in my way?!

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Can be obtained through rare summons.
- Gilgamesh's Weapon Collector bonus attack is stackable when he uses Dual Wield materia.
- Gilgamesh is one of the franchise's most popular characters after his big debut in Final Fantasy V. He returns in the later installments either as a minor character, optional boss or a summonable character.
- He is famous for this quote:
- "Enough expository banter! Now we fight like men! And ladies! And ladies who dress like men! For Gilgamesh...it is morphing time!"
- His victory pose is an obvious allusion to his never-ending quest to find the legendary sword, Excalibur. He will later realize that it was a fake and he will proceed into throwing the sword to the ground and stomps it repeatedly.
- Shell, Protect and Jump are one of his most memorable in-game sequence attack in Final Fantasy V. It triggers once he has been damaged enough.
- In most games in which he appears as a boss, the Genji Equipment can be stolen from him.
