Battle Edit

Once Sphinxaur is defeated, Sphinxara will take over and begin inflicting status ailments. Eventually it will call three allies to fight in its place: Jelleye, Forbidden, and the Tri-Face. These can be easily dispatched, leaving the monster vulnerable. Once Sphinxara is defeated, the ally disappears.

Strategy Edit

One way to save time with the Sphinxara's allies is to equip Sleep as a character's ST-Atk-J.

Etymology Edit

The Japanese name for this enemy is "Andro" in reference to androsphinx, a sphinx with a human head.

A 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.
