Chimera is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII. It is a four-headed monster with the heads of a goat, lion, hawk, and lizard, and a snake-headed tail. It appears on the Island Closest To Heaven and the Dingo Desert in Galbadia, although it is a very rare encounter in the latter.

StatsEdit

BattleEdit

Each of the heads corresponds to an attack: the lion causes physical damage, the lizard casts Aqua Breath, the hawk casts magic, while the snake tail inflicts status effects.

StrategyEdit

Having Elemental Defense that absorbs Water is useful to have Chimera's Aqua Breath heal the player.

Triple TriadEdit

161a Chimera

Chimera from Final Fantasy VIII appears on a Triple Triad card in the version available via Final Fantasy Portal App, but with different values than its card had in Final Fantasy VIII.

EtymologyEdit

The chimera is a fire-breathing monster, one of the offspring of Typhon and Echidna. It is commonly represented with a lion's head, a goat's body, and a serpent's tail in Greek mythology. In modern usage, the term chimera is often taken to mean any sort of hybrid between two or more species.
