Iron Giant Boss Battle Guide

This Iron Giant ain't no nice guy like in the movies! Keep the following tips in mind to take him down.

Stay close to it and avoid its face

The Iron Giant has few means of attacking to either side, so as long as you stay close to him and avoid his direct line of sight, almost all of his attacks will miss. While he is holding his sword, his Horizontal Sweep attack will hit from his left to his right, so move clockwise around him to see the attack coming and dodge.

That said, each of his attacks pack a punch, so don't get too cocky!

His sides are exposed when his sword is gone

After taking enough damage, the Iron Giant will lose his sword. As before, he'll be vulnerable on the sides, and without his Horizontal Sweep attack, he's all the more ripe for punishment.

Iron Giant Attack Phases

Iron Giant Abilities and Attack Patterns

Iron Giant's attacks will change in response to the players' distance. It will repeatedly attack throughout the battle, and rarely moves on its own. Watch its movements and find a pattern to avoid its attacks.

When the players are close

Vertical Slice (Sword)
Horizontal Sweep (Sword)
Fist Bomb (Unarmed)

When the players are far

Sonic Boom (Sword)
Shoulder Tackle (Unarmed)

From Cycle 2 on

Gravity Cyclone (Unarmed)

Attacks change when its HP decreases

As its HP decreases, Iron Giant will go from holding a sword to an unarmed state. Its attacks will change as well, but it won't have a significant effect on the battle strategy.

Attacks change in Cycles 2 and 3

From Cycle 2 on, Iron Giant will start to use the Gravity Cycle attack. It has a wide range and is difficult to avoid, but Iron Giant doesn't use it frequently. If you accidentally eat a fat fistful, take a breather and heal up before continuing the battle.

Iron Giant Rewards

    • Looking for friends to play Post-Game Dungeons with and farm rare Scrolls and Materials.

    • Hello! A question regarding Bonus Points and Boss sets:
      If I go to Tida on Cycle 3 in a Solo playthrough, do I need to reach the bonus points listed for 1P on the lists here to qualify for Set 8 to possibly drop?
      I'm currently trying to farm for better gear and need the scroll for a Selkie acc, which Armstrong drops in set 8, but havent fully grasp the system behind Bonus Points and Set chances yet.
      Thanks in advance!
