Gorgimera (ゴーキマイラ, Gōkimaira? or ゴーギマイラ, Gōgimaira? or ゴーキメラ, Gōkimera?), also known as Rhyos, Maximus, GChimera, JIMERA, and R.Chimra, is a recurring enemy in the series. It is a more powerful version of the Chimera, usually green in color. Much like Chimeras, Gorgimeras attack using a wide array of elemental attacks.
English localizations avoided use of "Gorgimera", and the name "Rhyos" coined in Final Fantasy VI on SNES became the standard localization until Final Fantasy XI (where enemy names use Latin-text in both Japanese and English versions) introduced its Gorgimera. This occurred following Dawn of Souls but before the other Advance retranslations, hence the inconsistency.
