The Sphinx is an enemy in the original Final Fantasy. It appears in the fourth floor of the Cavern of Earth, guarding two chests. The Sphinx also appears frequently as a random encounter in Mount Gulg. In the Earth Cave, they are moderately hard enemies as they may appear in groups, but they are not so difficult when compared to the much harder enemies there, like the Earth Elemental.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

A sphinx is a mythical creature with the body of a lion and a human head. In Greek tradition it is a female with the haunches of a lion, sometimes with the wings of a great bird, and the face of a human, and is mythicised as treacherous and merciless; those who cannot answer her riddle are killed and eaten. Unlike the Greek sphinx, the Egyptian sphinx is typically shown as a man and viewed as benevolent. Both were thought of as a guardian often flanking entrances to temples.
