The Simurgh is an enemy in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-.
Do not bother attacking them with Thunder-based attacks, because the Simurgh will absorb it into HP. This foe has a rapid dive-bomb attack, but Zack can counter this with an Assault Twister. A series of swift sword attacks will eventually bring the Simurgh down.
Simurgh is the modern Persian name for a benevolent mythical flying creature that can be described as a peacock with a head of a dog, a face of a human, and the claws of a lion. The figure can be found in all periods of Greater Persian art and literature and was used as the royal symbol of the Sassanid Empire.
