Battle[edit | edit source]

Northern Cross.

Maximum Kimaira may prove a threat to low-level players as it uses the powerful Freeze attack. It may use Claw twice in one turn, while Northern Cross always inflicts Poison on one character.

Kimairas can be morphed into Guard Sources.

Maximum Kimaira's AI script contains a programming error so it counters magic abilities by casting Freeze on the last character to use a physical attack upon the enemy. While it was programmed this way, it is likely it was intended to counter the character who used the magic attack.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The player can inflict it with Sleep and Poison with Bad Breath or Hades. Protection against Ice is useful, such as by elemental armor, or Elemental paired with Shiva/Ice Materia in armor.

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.
