Chimerageist is an Area Conquest enemy fought at the Monster Arena in Final Fantasy X. Chimerageist is the first Monster Arena boss to be unlocked (its requirement is capturing fiends in Calm Lands, which is also needed for opening of the Monster Arena) and is by far the weakest. It is beatable before characters head to Mt. Gagazet. It shares its model with the Chimera Brain.
Chimerageist is immune to four of five elements (Fire/Thunder/Water/Ice). Its attack pattern is Megiddo Flame, Blizzara or Thundara, Assault, and Aqua Breath (between 3,135 and 3,539 damage). The first attack Chimerageist will use is random.
As three of its four attacks are elementally charged, simply casting the four Nul-Spells will render the majority of its arsenal useless. Since its attack pattern is preset, it is simple to tell which attack is coming next once the first is launched. For its regular attack, Auron can shoulder the blow with Protect and Sentinel in effect. In this way, even parties fresh to the Calm Lands should be able to defeat Chimerageist.
While Chimerageist is not immune to Armor Break, it will only work 50% of the time. A Frag Grenade or Auron's Banishing Blade Overdrive work 100% of the time, and so are more effective to break its Full Break resistance.
