Gigantomachia was one of the newly introduced characters in My Hero Academia and also one of the strongest characters we have ever seen in MHA he was literally a monster and damn powerful. But who is Gigantomachia actually? and Why does Gigantomachia obey All for One & Shigarki orders? and if he is that powerful why didn’t he help All for one in the Kamino incident? These are some of the most unanswered questions in MHA about Gigantomachia. Well, let us crack them today and know the answers to those questions. So without any delay let’s dive into it.
Who is Gigantomachia in My Hero Academia?
Gigantomachia is a loyal bodyguard for All for One and he is also one of the Major Trump cards to him. He is the best High-end Nomu ever created by the Doctor and All for one. He can think individually, he had multiple quirks and above all, he is very loyal to All for one.
So All for one hid him in a secret place before the capture of the Kamino Incident and ordered Gigantomachia to hide until his successor Tomura Shigarki meets him and has the story continue after the Kamino incident and capture of All for one Shigarki searches for the power that All for one left for him none other than Gigantomachia.
We first got to see Gigantomachia when the police and Torino captured Kurogiri he came to save Kurogiri in chapter 163 of the MHA manga. But after meeting Shigaraki Gigantomachia doesn’t accept Shigaraki as his master ( All for one ) successor because Shigaraki was a mere weakling compared to Gigantomachia. So long story short he is one of the perfect High-end Nomu and very loyal to All for one.
Why Gigantomachia didn’t help All for one in the fight with One for All
Gigantomachia wanted to help his master ( All for one ) in the Kamino incident and if Gigantomachia helped All for one then he would have won the fight with One For All easily. Also, All for one wouldn’t get captured by pro heroes. So why didn’t Gigantomachia help him?
Well, All for one ordered Gigantomachia to hide and not appear to the outside world until his successor meets him and as we know Gigantomachia is a loyal servant to All for one and he listened as his master told and didn’t reveal his existence to outside world until the successor meets him. But why did All for One order Gigantomachia to stay hidden?
The reason for it is because All for one doesn’t want to use his trump card at the Kamino incident. Instead, he wanted Gigantomachia to protect his successor Tomura Shigarki because there is no other strong bodyguards than Gigantomachia. So Shigarki can inherit some of the crazy powers All for one left for him peacefully and become the perfect successor to All for one.
Why does Gigantomachia serve All for one and Shigaraki?
Even though Gigantomachia is a monster and very powerful why did he obey orders from All for one? The answer to the question might be either because he is developed into like that just like a Nomu or because of a major help of All for one in Gigantomachia life. Let’s get into it a little further into these reasons
As we know the high-end Nomu are created by the Doctor and they were transformed into servants who obey his orders. Even though the Nomu can think individually they obey their master’s orders because they were programmed like that. So Gigantomachia could have been programmed like that.
Or the other reason could be because All for One would have saved Gigantomachia in his hardest time. Like All for one helped Shigaraki when he was a kid and when everyone abandoned him he saved him and nurtured him. It might be the same case with Gigantomachia too. All for one could have saved Gigantomachia in the worst time and from then Gigantomachia became a loyal servant to All for one.
It most probably can be one of these 2 reasons. But why did Gigantomachia obey Shigaraki’s orders too? Well, Shigaraki was the successor of All for one, and even All for one ordered Gigantomachia to help Shigaraki but even though he first refused to accept Shigarki as his Master’s successor at first. But after seeing Shigaraki’s potential he accepted Shigaraki as All for one successor and started to obey Shigaraki’s orders too.
