Field sprite.

Sphinx is an enemy in Final Fantasy Mystic Quest. Sphinxes inhabit the Ice Pyramid. It has no elemental weaknesses and thus can be irritating to fight, but should fall with little difficulty. As it takes damage its wing feathers become damaged, and the fur raised.

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.
