|“||Ninten! I am grateful to your family. Your Great-Grandparents, George and Maria raised me. But, George stole vital information from our planet that can be used to betray my people... And now, one of his descendants is obstructing our plans, and must be stopped!! Ninten! I am talking about you! Go home now! Perish with the rest of the ugly Earth People. Foolish one, you cannot do a thing with your meager powers... Powers worthy of a lowly insect. Ninten! You alone, I may save you. Just you alone. Board our Mother Ship with me... then, fall into a long sleep with your friends and the other ugly earth people.||„|
|~ Giegue to Ninten|
|“||The form of Giegue's attack was inexplicable!||„|
|“||Master Giygas. No, Giygas is no longer the wielder of Evil. He has become the embodiment of evil itself...||„|
|~ Pokey Minch upon confronting the chosen four|
|“||So, isn't this terrifying? I'm terrified too. Giygas cannot think rationally anymore, and he isn't even aware of what he is doing now. His own mind was destroyed by his incredible power. What an all-mighty idiot! Yep, that's what he is! Heh heh heh heh... and you... you will be... just another meal to him!||„|
|~ Pokey describing Giygas|
|“||You cannot grasp the true form of Giygas' attack!||„|
Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness...…I’m h…a…p…p…y… …friends…
|“|| Ness! Ah, Grrr, Ohhh… Argh… Yaaagh!… It’s not right… not right…
|“||I feel g...o...o...d...||„|

Giegue, later became Giygas is the main antagonist of Earthbound Beginnings and its sequel Earthbound.
He grew up alongside a couple of humans kidnapped from earth, George and Maria's and grow fond of a particular lullaby sung by her. Due to George learning the powers of his race and return to earth, he had to invade earth in order to prevent that the PSI powers would spread on earth, but was defeated by Ninten and his friends through the same melody that Maria's sung to him during his childhood.
Years after his defeat and being informed that he would be ultimately defeated by a kid named Ness, he tried to defy his fate by brainwashing Ness neighbour Pokey Minch, who had to lock him in the Devil's Machine since his power grew to the point that he lost his form and most of his mind.
