The Sphinx is a famous creature from both Egyptian and Greek mythology. It is depicted as a monster with the body of a lion (sometimes with wings) and the head of a human (male or female). In Egyptian mythology, the Sphinx is depicted as a human headed lion wearing a Pharaoh's crown.
In God of War: Chains of OlympusEditIn God of War: Chains of Olympus, the Sphinx is an enemy that Kratos encounters in the Temple of Persephone. It appears similar to the Morpheus Beast, except that it's much stronger, its fur is brown and it's not wreathed in fog. It also has a similar fighting style, except that it breathes fire. Kratos also kills the beast in the same style as the Morpheus Beast.
God of War IIEdit
Two statues of the Sphinx can be seen at the entrance to the Bog of the Forgotten, however, no actual Sphinx are seen in the game.
