Kirby's Return to Dream Land / Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe[edit]

In its debut in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, apart from firing projectiles, Gigatzo (in one of the alternate dimension sections in Dangerous Dinner) is shown to cause pillars it is situated in to move downward because of its recoil, creating a crushing hazard for Kirby.

In Kirby's Return to Dream Land and Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, Gigatzo can be found in the following levels and stages:

In the Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition mode New Challenge Stages, Gigatzo appears as an obstacle in the Normal Challenge course, looking and behaving exactly as it did in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It does not appear in any of the other courses.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe and Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Gigatzo returns in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. In this game, it gains a slight redesign, and it is not quite as large as its appearance in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. However, it is now capable of changing its direction of fire in certain instances. It appears again in Kirby: Planet Robobot, essentially unchanged from its incarnation in Kirby: Triple Deluxe.
