Now we have the Chimera, a mishmash of other creatures much like the sphinx but more primal and animalistic. No riddles are asked by these guys.

Chimera, in Greek mythology, a fire-breathing female monster resembling a lionin the forepart, a goat in the middle, and a dragon behind. She devastated Caria and Lycia until she was slain by Bellerophon. In art the Chimera is usually represented as a lion with a goat’s head in the middle of its back and with a tail that ends in a snake’s head. This matches the description found in Hesiod’s Theogony (7th century BC). The word is now used generally to denote a fantastic idea or figment of the imagination.


I fondly remember the Chimera as one of many D&D (and other ttrpg’s) foes one could face off against. For more pop culture references see the link below.
