Further notes

The Chimera made its debut in the original Resident Evil, but has little residual impact on the series, only re-appearing in Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles.

In the 2002 remake, it has an HP value of between 800 and 1220, relative to Chris' and Jill's 1400 and 960, respectively.[1]

Move set (remake)Edit

Chimera is capable of three moves in 2002's Resident Evil. This is one less than the original 1996 title, where the Chimera would also knock people over.[2]

The Chimera can be killed with either shotgun at close range with just two shots. However, it is capable of retreating after taking one shot to the vents it came from, making it impossible to kill. The Self Defense Gun and Magnum Revolver can kill them in one shot. A direct hit from the Grenade Launcher (with normal rounds) will also kill the Chimera in one shot.
