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

Description Edit

Journal Description Edit

The Big Bull would perhaps be more accurately described as a "big bully". It cannot be reasoned with, and will persistently swing and smash its hammer at anything it feels like bothering. Do not get in the way! - Book of Sphinx

Museum Description Edit

The hammer-wielding monstrosity is renowned for its bad temper. Such is the size of its weapon, it acts as a shield without the need for a defensive pose. - Abydos Museum

Traits, Appearance, and Abilities Edit

It appears that the Big Bull slightly resembles the Greek mythological creature the Minotaur. It wields a massive axe hammer that he swings over its head in circles. Despite being called a Big Bull, it seems to be more ram-like than bull. The creature wears thick blue armor that covers a majority of its torso, though it can be hit there.

Strategy Edit

Monster's Strategy - The Big Bull will approach its foe and swing it's hammer above it's head several times. The hammer swings in a circular motion, protecting the Bull on all sides. It will then charge at its foe again, stop, and slam its hammer down in front of it, hoping to pound the enemy into the ground. This leaves it vulnerable, however. Strategy for Sphinx - Avoid the Big Bull's hammer at all costs. When it begins to swing it, run around until it slams into the ground. Then, run behind him and attack the creature with the Blade of Osiris. Repeat this until he's dead or flashing (if you want to capture him). Another strategy is to be in an area where he doesn't notice you. From there, you can hit him from the back using an acid dart.

Trivia Edit

  • The Big Bull is one of the four largest creatures in the game (the others are the Green Giant Worm, the Geb, and the Spitting Toad).
  • They may have been based on the ram god, Kherty. He was a symbol of both hostility and protection. Big Bulls are indeed hostile and eager to protect their designated space from outsiders.
