To top off the chaos, Egypt's iconic momument, the Great Sphinx of Giza, not only grew massive in size, but also gained a life of its own due to the influence of the mysterious crystals. Equipped with a dangerous forehead laser attack and crystal finger missiles, the gigantic form of the Sphinx rules the spatial ruins of Cairo with a floating iron fist.

- Forehead Laser: A basic energy attack. The Sphinx's floating head positions itself adjacent to its target and fires a wide blue laser from the middle of its forehead. The zigzagging laser is laced with chunks of purple crystals, but the crystals themselves are largely aesthetic.
- Crystal Finger Missiles: Projectiles fired from the Sphinx's fingers. The Sphinx positions its right hand sideways and its left hand with palm facing downward, then ejects its sharp purple talons on each finger consecutively. Its right hand is primarily used to strike down aerial targets, while its left hand aims for foes on the ground. The crystal finger missiles do not move very quickly, but the Sphinx is capable of regenerating its talons almost instantly, allowing it to do follow-up strikes if necessary.
- Boulder Manifestation: The Sphinx is capable of creating massive boulders. Typically, the Sphinx will dig its large hands into the ground around it to mold the rocks, then swiftly fling the newly-formed boulders to crush its opponents. Additionally, the Sphinx can also catapult boulders from the giant gaping hole in its chest, though it can only shoot one every couple of seconds.
- Segmented Body Parts: Using the energy of the mysterious crystals, the Sphinx gained the ability to freely manipulate its head, arms, and hands without them having to be attached to its torso. Its head is capable of floating great distances at surprising speed, while its segmented arms and hands give it great combat flexibility.
