Chimera Geist, also known as Chimerageist, is an enemy in the Advance and Complete Collection versions of Final Fantasy IV. They are the strongest of the Chimera group, but at the time they are fought, are not very difficult for a decently leveled party to defeat. Using strong physical attacks, Throw, and spells such as Flare and Holy will easily dispatch these enemies.
