History

The King Kong Show

The Jinx of the Sphinx

In alliance with the Nomads, Dr. Who placed an electric brain within the Sphinx and programmed it for 3 full days of destruction. Dr. Who ordered the Robot Sphinx to destroy the Suez Canal with intentions to destroy the other great wonders of the world. Swimming down the river, the Robot Sphinx began to destroy boats and anything else that blocked its path. The Sphinx soon interrupted a tour ship that was carrying Susan Bond and Captain Englehorn as passengers. Dr. Who revealed himself to the Bond family and told them of his plans. In response, Bobby Bond called for King Kong who emerged from behind a hill. Dr. Who made a quick escape and left the Robot Sphinx to continue destroying the canal. Kong approached the Robot Sphinx just as it was about to destroy the tour ship. He attempted to attack the Sphinx with a palm tree but the Sphinx melted it out of his hands. As the Sphinx needed to recharge its lasers after using them, Kong retaliated by forcing the Sphinx under the water. The Sphinx short-circuited and was then thrown across the river by Kong, sinking to the bottom.

It has no need to show emotion. It is a robot after all.
Despite that, it does seem pretty happy when burning people: http://wikiz..._Smiling.png

This is my favourite Sphinx-based kaiju (even though it is technically a robot).

Also, this was the first page that I've made on this website unless you count the gallery page for La Carcagne.

Nothing beats the flying hungover Sphinx from Spectreman.
