Battle Edit

It uses various elemental attacks, such as Fireball, Snowstorm, Megavolt, and Magnitude 8 to name a few, but one of its most feared attacks is Flare Star.

It also has very high HP and no elemental weaknesses, but is vulnerable to Stop; once stopped, the party should defeat the monster with their strongest attacks.

Coliseum setup Edit

Bet Dragon Horn for Gold Hairpin
Bet Hero's Ring for Guard Bracelet
Bet Masamune for Murakumo
Bet Red Cap for Hypno Crown
Bet Reed Cloak for Tortoise Shield
Bet Wing Edge for Sniper

If the Paladin's Shield and/or Minerva Bustier are unavailable, the Thunder Shield should be used, since it nullifies Aero and reduces damage from Avalanche and Flare Star by 50%. The Snow Scarf is another alternative or addition to those, since it can absorb Ice-elemental damage and reduce Fire-elemental damage by 50%. As usual, the Kagenui can hit the Gorgimera's vulnerability to Stop if needed.

Etymology Edit

Gorgimera combines the words gorgon and chimera.

In Greek mythology, the Gorgon was a terrifying female creature who had hair of living, venomous snakes, and a horrifying visage that turned those who beheld it to stone, the most famous being Medusa.

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.
