The soldier returns, and he's more armed and dangerous than ever!
— Tough: Gigant Edge Quest description in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe

Gigant Edge is a Mid-Boss debuting in Kirby's Return to Dream Land that grants the Sword Copy Ability, and is the first mid-boss in the series to do so. He wears different, tougher armor than Sword Knight or Blade Knight's, 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.

突進攻撃
Rush Attack
Gigant Edge takes one, two or three steps back, pulls out his sword and runs with it ahead of him. He does not stop until he hits the wall, upon which Drop Stars appear.

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Battle beside your team! Work together to defeat the Steel Soldier hiding in the forest!
— Steel Soldier Gigant Edge Quest description from Team Kirby Clash

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 Health. 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.

Gigant Edge appears three times in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe. 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.
