The Chimera Brain, also known as the Mantcore, ChmraBrain, or Manticore, is an enemy from Final Fantasy IV.



Easy Type

Battle Edit

It can be problematic, as it absorbs all three main elements (Fire, Ice, and Lightning) and knows the dangerous Frost Blast attack. They can appear after a Trap Door transforms, or appear with a group of other enemies.

Strategy Edit

It is best to cast Bio on them while having Rosa using Cura on the party to counteract the Blaze attack, and have Kain Jump, while Cecil and Edge attack.

Another effective strategy is to have Rosa cast Beserk on it, so it cannot use its deadly Blaze ability.

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.

The manticore is a Persian legendary creature similar to the Egyptian sphinx. It has the body of a lion, the head of a human, and the tail of a scorpion. The name means "man eater."
