The Chimera Brain, also known as the Mantcore, ChmraBrain, or Manticore, is an enemy from Final Fantasy IV.
Stats[edit | edit source]
Battle[edit | edit source]
Chimera Brain can be problematic, as it absorbs all three main elements (Fire, Ice, and Lightning) and knows the dangerous Frost Blast attack. It can appear after a Trap Door transforms, or appear with a group of other enemies.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Another effective strategy is to have Rosa cast Berserk on it, so it cannot use its deadly Blaze ability.
