Trivia

  • Gilgamesh's new form is a palette swap of the "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" Bludgeon toy, in the colors of Gilgamesh's original artwork design by Yoshitaka Amano, with the addition of a kilt like those worn by Scottish highlanders.
  • In one of the quotes above, Gilgamesh references the epic poem from which his and Enkidu's names were derived.
  • When transforming into a tank and back into a robot, Gilgamesh makes the same sounds as the Transformers do. This trait also applies to his partner Enkidu, who turns into a jet.
  • John DiMaggio voices Gilgamesh with the same accent he provided for the Scotsman from Samurai Jack, and utters a shortened variation of his 20-second long insult.
  • Before the first battle with him, Gilgamesh plays a scottish bagpipe version of the Chocobo theme to lure Sora into his tank form's cockpit and trap him there. This is also a subtle reference to the Autobot Bumblebee "talking" through his built-in car radio in the Transformers Cinematic Universe.
  • Gilgamesh was "announced" as a guest fighter for Dissidia Bionic Fantasy as an April Fools' joke.
