Battle Edit

Rhyos is semi-powerful and should be dealt with before other enemies. Using strong attacks is preferred, as is setting up Protect and Shell to reduce the damage they can do.

Creature Creator Edit

Fiend Tale Edit

One notable Rhyos was created from the spirit of a Bevellian inventor who played a role in the development of Yevon's machina and the shoopuf saddle. The genius inventor was killed by one of his own creations and was reborn a fiend who now creates machina to solely benefit others.

Etymology Edit

Its Japanese name is Gorgimera. 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.
