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 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.

Game Appearances[edit]

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

Gigant Edge made his first appearance in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, debuting in Cookie Country - Stage 2, acting as a Mid-Boss. In the Extra Mode and The True Arena, Gigant Edge EX, a tougher variant of the normal enemy is found. His armor is bronze and he attacks more viciously.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

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[edit]

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[edit]

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.

Super Kirby Clash[edit]

In-game capture of Gigant Edge from Super Kirby Clash.

Gigant Edge appears three times 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.


The following are all of Gigant Edge's attacks in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe and Super Kirby Clash. Note that attack names are conjectural:
