"A monstrosity with the heads of a lion, snake, and goat. He came to the forest after descending from the North, where he wreaks havoc. His arrival may have triggered the uprising of other monsters.

They say someone turned once regular creatures into his monster.

Get too close and you'll incur the goat's magic. Only the lion's rush offers an opening, and an attack may be enough to knock it off its balance.

Many species of Chimera exist, so you may run into more than just one."

Strategy / Tips:

Swords will deal less damage here. Using IRON / SLVR Hammers then using your Hammer Special Move while near him will deal multiple hits (200+ / hit). Be careful not to get too close or, as the description says, you'll get hit by the goat's magic, although this is easy to avoid.

Also be careful not to get pounced or pinned, as this takes 2 leaves off your HP. Continuously hammering him will always knock him, giving you the chance to attack him until he can't stand up.
