The Chimera is a type of fiend from Final Fantasy X, born from the conglomeration of several fiends into a single composite entity. It has the heads of a bull, an eagle, a wolf, and a snake.

A stronger version is summoned by the Guado Guardians during the attack on Home. Its HP, Strength, and Magic stats are increased, and its bribe is Underdog's Secrets rather than Mana Tablets.


Macalania Woods



Chimera in battle.

Both versions of Chimera will attack using Thundara; a physical strike that hits for 1/4 HP; Aqua Breath, a Water-based attack; and Megiddo Flame, a Fire-based attack, in that order, starting with a random ability. Chimera in Macalania Woods won't use physical attacks against Valefor, and will cast Thundara if provoked. At Home, they will do nothing after casting Thundara against Valefor and cast Thundaga if provoked.


A combination of Provoke and Silence leaves them defenseless. Auron's Threaten ability freezes them as well.

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.
