It is a core flagship that leads the armada you combat in the third stage. It also appears as Gigantic Mk. II in Gradius NEO Imperial.
Gigantic's 2 attacks consist of 2 homing missiles, one from each shell, and a giant beam from a barrierless core.
Gigantic will start out by flying in from above, then backing in from the middle, and start shooting missiles. He will occasionally open the shells and fire a gigantic beam, then close back up. This is the entirety of his attack methods, you must defeat him by destroying his shell, then firing at the armed core.
