The Chimera, Chimera Mage, and Grand Chimera are enemies that are battled in each game in the Golden Sun series. These monsters, resembling three-headed beasts with lion, gryphon, and goat heads and with a snake for a tail, are palette swaps of each other that have differing levels of power and defense and are fought in different locations in the games. In each game, every Chimera variant has a larger selection of battle commands than usual.

In Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age[edit]

Chimera[edit]

Chimera.png

A Chimera (キメラ Chimera) is a large level 28 variant with its features generally colored brown and yellow, and with a violet snake tail. In Golden Sun, two are fought together as one scripted boss encounter that occurs on the sixth "dungeon floor" of the optional Crossbone Isle dungeon, as soon as you try to enter the door to that floor's puzzle room.

The encounter with two Chimeras can be expected to be about as difficult as the "sub-boss battle" on the seventh floor below, and likely more difficult than the battle in the floor above with the single Lizard King. In particular, Rabid Fang can be dangerous if its Venom-inducing effect connects. But this battle can most likely be conducted "as usual" and be won, and like the other sub-boss encounters in Crossbone Isle this battle can be "cheaply" won by having everyone use a 4-Djinn Summon on the first turn to annihilate the Chimeras.

Chimera Mage[edit]

Chimera Mage.png

A Chimera Mage (キメラマージ Chimera Mage) is a normal-sized level 26 variant with its features generally colored violet and pink, and with a brownish-orange snake tail. In Golden Sun, it is first fought throughout Babi Lighthouse, then subsequently through Tunnel Ruins and the later "real" portion of Venus Lighthouse.

In Babi Lighthouse it is one of the stronger randomly fought monsters, about the level of the Wild Gryphon, but is soon overtaken by the Fenrir in Venus Lighthouse. The fact it drops a unique piece of equipment not findable anywhere else in the series makes it a popular target for Random Number Generator abuse, even though compared to other monsters' dropped items the chance to get the item is somewhat more common; whether the Spiked Armor is something one's party would actually use is another story.

Grand Chimera[edit]

Grand Chimera.png

A Grand Chimera (ヘルキメラ Hell Chimera) is a normal-sized level 34 variant with its features generally colored dark blue and light blue, and with a dark-purple snake tail. In Golden Sun: The Lost Age, it is primarily fought throughout Magma Rock, and also fought in the Northern Reaches area where you control your ship through the ice floes.

The Grand Chimera is outright easier to defeat than the Chimera Mage because it has 100 less HP, and quite literally the only difference between their battle abilities is that its Fire Breath attack is twice as strong. For an 8-member party, it should hardly be tough at all, at least in comparison to the Lesser Demons in the area.
