The Cobra is a monster in Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy. It is one of the first monsters encountered in the game, along with the Spitting Toad, and spawns from common pickup containers such as jars and trees.

Traits, Appearance, and Abilities Edit

The Cobra is a bright green hooded snake with a light green ankh symbol on the back of its hood. Alongside the Manta Ray and Sea Turtle, it is one of the few monsters which resembles the real life animal for which it is named.

They slither around aimlessly once released from whatever is holding them, striking out at whatever crosses their path.

Prior to acquiring the Blade of Osiris, carefully throw or drop a rock on it. Once you've obtained the sword, slash it once to capture it, or twice to kill it.

Trivia Edit

  • Instead of exploding into light like most monsters do upon death, the cobra dissolves into green gas which fades away.
