— Figure description segment from Kirby and the Forgotten Land
Gigant Sword is an Evolved Copy Ability based on Sword that appears in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. With this ability, Kirby wields an outfit as well as a sword and shield that resembles Wild Edge. Although slow, this ability's sword swings can do considerable damage. When guarding, Kirby pulls out a shield that negates most forms of damage and is also able to move around with the shield up, but he cannot dodge.
The blueprint for Gigant Sword can be found in Circuit Speedway, appearing inside a Treasure Chest along the main path which pops up as a reward for defeating Wild Edge in that stage. Gigant Sword is required for the Treasure Road stage Slash and Slice! Gigant Sword Trial.
All names are conjectural.

This big ol' sword is definitely gigant...ic! It's a bit hard to swing around, but it'll keep you well guarded. Use it to shield yourself from an attack, then go on the offensive!
- Unlike Wild Edge's shield which only covers their front and leaves their back vulnerable, Gigant Sword's shield protects Kirby from all directions.
- The only attacks that can penetrate through Kirby's shield are attacks from Gnawcodile, Sssnacker, poison and lava puddles, getting crushed, getting eaten by Wild Frosty, Fleurina's Vortex Spin attack, getting grabbed by Gorimondo, Meta Knight's Force Force and Upper Calibur attacks (the latter only when the shield isn't facing Meta Knight), getting caged by Sillydillo, getting inhaled by Forgo Dedede, Morpho Knight's tornadoes, Soul Forgo's explosion attack and Chaos Elfilis' Black Hole and Deadly Sun attacks.
