The Fire Armadillo is a monster in Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy.

Description Edit

Journal Description Edit

Employing the same spinning and charging attack as the Skeletal Armadillo, the Skeletal Fire Armadillo also generates a ball of fire, damaging any opponents with scorching results...Captured ones can be used to burn down wooden obstacles. - Book of Sphinx

Museum Description Edit

These peculiar, waddling quadrupeds normally walk along at a slow pace. Their hard shell doubles up as a weapon when spinning along the ground. Certain popular children’s tales claim their origins as the union of a tortoise and a hedgehog. - Abydos Museum

Traits, Appearance, and Abilities Edit

The Fire Armadillo is a spike-backed armadillo that charges itself up with fire. It was almost skeletal in appearance, and had only red dots for eyes.

Strategy Edit

Strategy for Sphinx - When it begins to spin, move out of the way. Slash at the back when not attacking/flashing fire to weaken it.

Locations Edit

Trivia Edit

  • When manipulated correctly, the Fire Armadillo can produce the same results as the Fire Mummy.
  • The Fire Armadillo is one of the three manipulable (meaning, it can be tricked into doing the player's will) monsters, the others being Electric Armadillos and Slim Burbles.
  • All armadillo monsters feature the same museum description and share the same pedestal.
  • The Fire Armadillo's journal description mention a basic Skeletal Armadillo. Some explorers of game have theorized that this variation of the armadillo was cut, or intended to be placed in a cut region.
    • The Armadillo pedestal in the Abydos Museum, which it shares with the Electric, also supports this theory, with a gap between the pair.
