Chimera is an enemy in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. It can be found in the Luxerion Cathedral on the final day. Chimera spawns frequently in the last large room of the Altar of Salvation trial, after the player completes the trial.

Battle Edit

Chimera is immune to Lightning and Wind.

Strategy Edit

It may be wise to bring fire and ice-based abilities, such as Fira and Blizzara.

The best early strategy is to debuff Chimera with Deprotect and Deshell to increase the damage output from physical and magical abilities.

Fira and Blizzara can be used to stagger it faster. The player can take the chance to use Beat Down to inflict moderate damage to Chimera when it's staggered.

Etymology Edit

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.
