Gigant Edge is a mid-boss that debuted in Kirby's Return to Dream Land that grants the Sword Copy Ability. He wears different, tougher armor than Sword Knights, and also sports a shield (which he occasionally uses). Gigant Edge attacks by shooting waves across the ground in an attempt to hit Kirby, or charging toward Kirby with his sword.

Gigant Edge EX is a tougher variant of the normal enemy, found in the Extra Mode and in The True Arena. His armor is bronze and he attacks more viciously.

Gigant Edge also appears in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, returning as a Mid-Boss. He bears largely the same move-set, though he will additionally attempt to toss his sword in a boomerang fashion as it flies between the background and foreground.

Gigant Edge DX, much like Gigant Edge EX before him is a much tougher variant, though his armor is golden and he could be considered to be much more formidable than EX.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Gigant Edge appears as one of the opponents that the Kirbys must battle in the Kirby: Planet Robobot Sub-Game, Team Kirby Clash. Here, he is much larger, and has much greater Stamina. He also possesses some new moves, including the ability to leap high into the air and perform a down thrust, though this also leaves him helpless for a short while, since his sword gets stuck in the ground.

Team Kirby Clash Deluxe & Super Kirby Clash

Gigant Edge appears three times in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe and three more times in Super Kirby Clash. He fights in much the same way as he did in the original sub-game, but each new encounter makes him tougher, and also makes his moves more elaborate. In Super Kirby Clash, he is paired with Kibble Blade to form Team Mighty Cleave, and paired again with Kracko to form Team Sword & Storm. Despite this, he is out-shined by his flashier cousin, Ignite Edge.
