The Almost-a-Bull is a monster in Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy.

Description Edit

"Almost-a-Bull is named so not only for the two horns atop its head, but also for its unnerving habit of charging and attacking anyone wearing the color red."
Book of Sphinx
"Uses its horns to violent effect."
Monster Inspector
"Often found in Heliopolis, the Almost-a-Bull’s defense mechanism sees it shrink in order to present a smaller target for any attacker. A unique breeding mistake led to one hand being replaced with a third horn; almost an evolutionary anomaly."
Abydos Museum

Traits, Appearance, and AbilitiesEdit

The Almost-a-Bull appears to be completely covered in bandages like a mummy. It uses its claws to deliver brutal and dangerous attacks. Almost-a-Bulls appear from gas vents, and shrink in size with each strike from the Blade of Osiris; if not killed, they go back to the gas vents to regrow and heal.

Strategy for SphinxEdit

Slash at the shrinking monster until it is dead. The best strategy is to stand on the gas vent, preventing it from returning to safety.
