The Sphinx is a golden creature from Egypt that has a woman's head and a lion's body with wings. It appears in the Smurfs Season 6 episode "Smurfquest" when encountered by the Smurfs in their journey around the world to restore the power of the Long Life Stone. She guards the purest source of the earth element and tests those who enter her pyramid with a riddle -- she will only allow someone to leave if they answer it correctly. She can be rather ferocious to those who fail, as Gargamel learns to his dismay.
- The Sphinx is a mystical creature from both Greek and Egyptian mythology.
