The Chimera is an enemy from Final Fantasy Mystic Quest.

BattleEdit

They can inflict status ailments and use elemental magic, but are not a threat. They counter with Poison-touch when physically attacked.

It has three phases. At first its three heads glare at the party, with the lion head snarling. The second phase has the goat head crumpled, and the lizard head snarling. The third phase has both goat and lizard heads dead.

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.

In the Japanese release, the creature is called "Trinity" referring to its three heads.

In the German release, the creature is called "Hades Wächter," meaning "Hades Guardian." This could stem from Cerberus, the three-headed guard-dog of Hades.
