Mt. Itoi

In Mother, Giygas leads an army of aliens and robots in an invasion of planet Earth, starting eighty years after George's escape from from captivity at the hands of Giygas' faction. The operations of Giygas' forces consist primarily of abducting and harrying the citizens of the region of America in which they are stationed.

Atop Mt. Itoi, Giygas is confronted by Ninten and his companions. Before the fight actually begins, Giygas offers to spare Ninten's life and allow him come with him back to his home planet, presumably out of respect for Ninten's great-grandparents, who raised Giygas. Ninten declines, and after being turned down, Giygas attacks him. Once in battle, Giygas is immune to all forms of attack; while he still appears to take damage, his HP is effectively bottomless. Instead, Ninten and his friends must repeatedly attempt to sing the Eight Melodies, hoping to remind Giygas of his memories of Maria. Eventually, as Ninten and company finally manage to finish the song, the emotional stress becomes too much for Giygas to handle, and he retreats, calling back his forces and promising that he and Ninten will meet again.

For clarity, the player cannot name a character Giegue.

In-game description

"(Ninten hears the voice of Queen Mary) Giegue cannot be defeated with force... You cannot defeat Giegue with a weapon of any kind. You must SING my lullaby, with all your feelings... SING my lullaby with all your heart."

Cave of the Past

In EarthBound (the subtitle of which is "The War Against Giygas"), Giygas has gained unimaginable power, being dubbed the "Universal Cosmic Destroyer", and strives to rule the entire galaxy. Using the Apple of Enlightenment, Giygas witnesses his own defeat at the hands of Ness and his party, and sets out to prevent this from happening.

Ness hears about him from Buzz Buzz, who came from the future to warn him about Giygas' plot. Shortly afterwards, they are both attacked by one of Giygas' hired henchmen, a Starman Junior.

Ness goes through all of Eagleland to harness his powers in order to defeat Giygas, and gains three fated companions - Paula, Jeff, and Poo - along the way. Giygas must be fought in the past, and to go there, the Phase Distorter must be used. Because time travel is described as having the potential to destroy their bodies, the party must transfer their souls into mechanical bodies in the process. As they fight their way through the Cave of the Past, they approach what appears to be a giant machine composed of various metal tubes. When they reach the center, they find Pokey, who is turned blue by Giygas' corruption. Pokey reveals that Giygas has destroyed himself with his own power, and exists in a physical form only through the Devil's Machine. Pokey proceeds by "waking up" the alien leader, only for it to take the appearance of Ness' face in the machine. During the first phase of the battle, the Devil's Machine not only protects Giygas from harm, but rebounds attacks back at the user with double damage. Giygas also shows himself capable of using PSI Rockin, a move previously reserved for use by Ness. As a result, the player must focus his or her attacks on Pokey, and must avoid using moves such as PSI Rockin, which will damage Giygas and therefore rebound on the user.

When Pokey is damaged sufficiently, he begins taunting the protagonists, and turns off the Devil's Machine to unveil Giygas' true form, an eerie red mist in the shape of a screaming face. Pokey reveals that he himself is terrified by the alien's form, while warning that he is undefeatable. After dealing enough damage to Giygas, a scene will be triggered in which Pokey continues taunting them, telling them the only thing they can do is "beg for help". In the ensuing phases of the battle, Giygas will eventually heal any damage done to him, making him impossible to defeat by usual means. His main attack is reprised from the previous game, where he will make "inexplicable attacks" that randomly take the form of various PSI moves. The only way to defeat Giygas is by using Paula's "pray" ability. The party's prayers reach out to the people of Eagleland they meet, and as more people join in prayer for the heroes, Giygas begins taking increasing damage, each turn splitting his form and becoming more convoluted and distorted. The final "blow" is dealt by the player praying in support of the party, which deals devastating damage to Giygas, killing him and winning the battle.

Throughout the fight, Giygas talks to Ness before attacking, much like his pattern in the previous game towards Ninten. As opposed to his long speech in Mother, however, he makes very vague and simplistic statements such as "I feel good" and "It hurts".
