The Gorgimera, also called Rhyos, is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI. It is found in the Cave on the Veldt; however, it is very rare.

Stats Edit

Battle Edit

It uses various elemental attacks, such as Fireball, Snowstorm, Megavolt, and Magnitude 8 to name a few, but one of its most feared attacks is Flare Star.

It also has very high HP and no elemental weaknesses, but is vulnerable to Stop; once stopped, the party should defeat the monster with their strongest attacks.

Coliseum setup Edit

If the Paladin's Shield and/or Minerva Bustier are unavailable, the Thunder Shield should be used, since it nullifies Aero and reduces damage from Avalanche and Flare Star by 50%. The Snow Scarf is another alternative or addition to those, since it can absorb Ice-elemental damage and reduce Fire-elemental damage by 50%. As usual, the Kagenui can hit the Gorgimera's vulnerability to Stop if needed.

Etymology Edit

Gorgimera combines the words gorgon and chimera.

In Greek mythology, the Gorgon was a terrifying female creature who had hair of living, venomous snakes, and a horrifying visage that turned those who beheld it to stone, the most famous being Medusa.

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.
