The Chimerageist is an Area Conquest enemy fought at the Monster Arena in Final Fantasy X. Chimerageist is the first Monster Arena boss to be unlocked (its requirement is capturing fiends in Calm Lands, which is also needed for opening of the Monster Arena) and is by far the weakest. It is beatable before characters head to Mt. Gagazet.

It is immune to four of five elements (Fire/Thunder/Water/Ice).

Chimerageist's attack pattern is Megiddo Flame, Blizzara or Thundara, Assault, and Aqua Breath (between 3,135 and 3,539 damage). The first attack Chimerageist will use is random.

It drops armor with three or four slots equipped with elemental eater abilities (which convert all damage of that element into HP).


Chimerageist is somewhat susceptible to Doom and it is therefore an easy way to defeat it. Another way is to cast Hastega and hit with strong attacks with characters sporting good defense stats.

As three of its four attacks are elementally charged, simply casting the four Nul-Spells will render the majority of its arsenal useless. Since its attack pattern is preset, it is simple to tell which attack is coming next once the first is launched. For its regular attack, Auron will easily be able to shoulder the blow with Protect and Sentinel in effect. In this way, even parties fresh to the Calm Lands should be able to defeat Chimerageist.

While Chimerageist is not immune to Armor Break, it will only work 50% of the time. A Frag Grenade or Auron's Banishing Blade Overdrive work 100% of the time, and so are more effective to break its Full Break resistance.



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.

Geist is a German word. Depending on context it can be translated as the English words mind, spirit, or ghost, covering the semantic field of these three English nouns.
