Gigas (ギガース Gigāsu?) is a character in the Tekken series who is introduced in the upcoming Tekken 7 as one of the new playable characters [3]. He was first seen as one of the four fighters (the other three being Jin Kazama, Devil Jin and Josie Rizal) whose in-game character models were leaked online in March 2015.



Gigas is a large red male behemoth creature with a mirrored helmet consisting of six "eyes" with a matching black steel collar. If one is to look closely, a glimpse of Gigas's mouth may be caught on some occasions. Most of his body is covered in large black pieces of armor, gauntlets and shoulder pads over his red skin, with numerous loose cables sticking out of his back.


Gigas' personality lingers more to an animalistic side than human, being only able to make sub-human grunts, shouts and gurgles.


Tekken 7

A fierce arms race between the Mishima Zaibatsu and G Corporation has lead the G Corporation to design a new military model to use in the war.

With one development team being lead by Jane who is behind the JACK series of military units and another in G Corporation that recently had a new biotechnological weapon development breakthrough. This breakthrough has lead to the creation of Gigas by enhancing the genes of strong fighters that turns them into fierce monsters.

Determined to test out it's new fighting capabilities and armed with a dislike to Heihachi Mishima, Gigas enters the King of Iron Fist tournament.


Gigas excels at pressure, with many moves specifically designed to rush the opponent down and make them panic. Whilst his combo potential is minimal, when he gets an opponent against the wall he becomes incredibly dangerous. His Overkill move in particular will take away almost half of the opponent's health if performed against a wall. His attack range is also an immense advantage. Gigas' main drawbacks however is that many of his moves are quite unsafe, predictable and slow; if Gigas is being outplayed by the opponent, it is hard to make a comeback.

Fighting Style

Gigas fights using an "original" fighting style which is simply referred as "Destructive Impulse". When observing the movements and motions of the his attacks, it is safe to assume that no technique is utilized in this fighting style and is simply sheer brute force. Many of his moves and attack animations however, are derived from Vale Tudo practitioner Craig Marduk.



  • His design has been compared to that of a comic book character, in which his design holds many similarities to the Hard Suit from Gantz and DC Comics character Bane, especially in the TV series The Batman.
    • Additionally, his traits may also have been based on Marvel Comics character Savage Hulk.
  • Due to the similarity in appearance and fighting style, many fans have speculated that Gigas may actually be Australian fighter Craig Marduk; he however has clearly undergone a traumatic change if it is confirmed to be him.
  • The inscriptions on his metal armor parts such as "03 Prototype" and "Caution High Voltage" are reminiscent of the inscriptions in Metal Gear character Raiden's custom cyborg body in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
