The Cyclops is a monster in Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy.

Description Edit

Journal Description Edit

These elusive critters shoot a powerful ray of fire from their single eye, and are able to teleport over short distances...When injured, the Cyclops will split into two - double the danger. - Book of Sphinx

Museum Description Edit

Name so for its single eye, this biped is capable of charging bolts of fire, teleportation and duplication. Their combination of skin and hair colour has sometimes seen them confused with a certain root vegetable... - Abydos Museum

Traits, Appearance, and Abilities Edit

Cyclops resemble chili peppers and other vegetables, posing as a threat to unsuspecting farmers. They featured red bodies and green tops and limbs, and would split when struck by a sword. Similar to the Eye of Ra, they could cast lasers, however, they were less powerful.

Strategy Edit

Monster's Strategy - These monsters can be frustrating to fight, as they are incredibly agile and teleport away whenever their foe approaches. They will reappear out of their foe's line of sight (usually behind them) and fire a laser beam. If Sphinx manages to get close, but does not strike quickly enough, the Cyclops can back flip away and disappear. Once it has been split in two, the pair will attack simultaneously from different directions in an attempt to confuse Sphinx. Strategy for Sphinx - While battling it, it will laugh at you and shoot a laser from its eye. If you get close while it is not moving, it will vanish. You must work quickly in order to eliminate them. On the first hit, they will split into two. Both will begin to flash, and at this point it only takes one more strike to kill them.
