Field sprite.

The Chimera is an enemy in Final Fantasy Mystic Quest. It inflicts status ailments and uses elemental magic, but is not a threat. It counters with Poison-touch when physically attacked. At first its three heads glare at the party, with the lion head snarling. The second phase has the goat head crumpled, and the lizard head snarling. The third phase has both goat and lizard heads dead.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

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.

In the Japanese release, the creature is called "Trinity" referring to its three heads.

In the German release, the creature is called "Hades Wächter," meaning "Hades Guardian." This could stem from Cerberus, the three-headed guard-dog of Hades.
