Gargantos was an inter-dimensional being sent by Scarlet Witch to kidnap America Chavez in order to acquire her Multiversal abilities. Gargantos attacked Chavez in New York but was attacked by Wong and Doctor Strange, the latter of whom killed Gargantos by gouging its eye out with a lamppost.
Discovered by Scarlet Witch
As a result, Gargantos was enthralled to capture America Chavez, a teenager with the ability to travel across the Multiverse. When Chavez arrived in Scarlet Witch's universe, Gargantos was tasked to capture her in New York City. Gargantos chased after Chavez, until they reached Christine Palmer's wedding reception, which alerted Doctor Strange to its presence.
When Chavez entered a bus, Gargantos picked it up and began to destroy it, Doctor Strange would then arrive using his powers to disarm the bus, frightening Gargantos who walked away for a few moments. The creature tried to reach Chavez with one of its tentacles however Strange cut it off with a part of the bus causing its anger and sudden distraction which Strange used to rescue Chavez and later rearm the vehicle to launch it at Gargantos.
Gargantos got upset and picked up the bus to throw it at Strange, however he dodged it by casting a spell that cut the bus in half. In a moment of distraction between Strange and Chavez, Gargantos took the opportunity to approach and hit Strange against a local, the creature then let out a yell and proceeded to go in search of Chavez, she tried to escape by running through the streets while Gargantos destroyed cars at its step trying to kidnap Chavez.
Turning on a street, Gargantos managed to grab Chavez with its tentacles, however Wong came saving America by holding her with a lasso, Gargantos tried to attack Wong however he defended himself, after a short confrontation Gargantos managed to grab him with its tentacles. The creature continued to chase Chavez, however Strange's cloak saved it by lifting it up to a building, while he could not reach it Gargantos launched a motorcycle that caused the cloak to remain immobile in an alley.
Gargantos prepared to climb the building, so Strange got up throwing an ax that cut one of Gargantos' limbs in which it was holding Wong, however the creature didn't stop and continued looking for Chavez. While Gargantos went up, the sorcerers tried to held on it, finally Gargantos started to destroy the edges of the building where Chavez was standing, in a decisive act Strange cast a spell on Gargantos's tentacle that caused it to slip.
Annoyed, Gargantos cut the ropes holding the wizards grabbing Strange as Wong fell to the ground, Gargantos stared at Strange in anger causing Chavez to destroy part of the sculpture by hitting Gargantos, while the Cloak of Levitation was released to heading to cover Gargantos's eye, Strange then seized the moment to cast a spell that would grab a light pole and stab Gargantos in the eye, ending its life. Strange removed the pole with the eye as Gargantos falls to the ground.

Behind the Scenes
- Gargantos' design in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is based on Shuma-Gorath but gets its name from Gargantos, both of them being giant cephalopods in Marvel Comics. It was named Gargantos because Marvel Studios cannot legally use the name "Shuma-Gorath" as it originates from The Curse of the Golden Skull by Robert E. Howard, with Heroic Signatures holding the rights to the Shuma-Gorath name.
