The Chimera Brain is an enemy from Final Fantasy X encountered in the northwestern area of the Calm Lands. It uses several magic attacks in battle: a standard Lightning-based attack on par with Thundara, a Fire-based attack called Megiddo Flame, and Aqua Breath, which Kimahri can learn as a Ronso Rage skill. In addition to magic, it also has a powerful physical attack. If it gets bribed successfully it will drop two Level 4 key spheres, a very rare item in the game.

Chimera Brain will drop weapons with Magic +5% or +10% or armor with Magic Defense +10%.

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.
