Sphinx is an enemy type from Final Fantasy Mystic Quest. Sphinxes inhabit the Ice Pyramid. They have no elemental weaknesses and such can be irritating to fight, but they should fall with little difficulties.
sphinx is a mythical creature with the body of a lion and a human head. In Greek tradition it is a female with the haunches of a lion, sometimes with the wings of a great bird, and the face of a human, and is mythicised as treacherous and merciless; those who cannot answer her riddle are killed and eaten. Unlike the Greek sphinx, the Egyptian sphinx is typically shown as a man and viewed as benevolent. Both were thought of as a guardian often flanking entrances to temples.A
