This article is about a/an Phantom in Kamen Rider Wizard.


Sphinx (スフィンクス Sufinkusu) is a Phantom born from a man called Kusuda (楠田 Kusuda), when he gave up in despair.

His Gate target is Masafumi Saionji (西園寺 雅文 Saionji Masafumi), who has hit a writer's block and must seek out a woman he once met years ago, which later revealed she was Koyomi. Sphinx can breathes flames from his mouth and can manipulate flames. He also armed with a baton to attacks enemies.

He first meets Saionji but halted by Wizard Hurricane Dragon. Sphinx later retreat, after overpowered by Wizard Water Dragon. However, he picked up Saionji's ring that was given by the woman he was searched. He later calls Saionji for destroying the ring in front of Saionji. Though, Haruto already put on Garuda on watching Saionji, thus saving the ring from Sphinx. Sphinx then fights Wizard Flame Dragon with the Ghouls. Though the Ghouls soon destroyed with Dragon Fourmation. Sphinx then leaves the Ghouls to be destroyed with Wizard Infinity Style.

Later, when Saionji and Koyomi go to the lake where they had met before, Sphinx destroys Saionji's ring and drives him to despair. Fortunately, Haruto and Kosuke arrive in the nick of time. While Haruto take cares of Saionji's Phantom, Kosuke fights Sphinx. Though Sphinx and Beast using Falco Mantle are equally strong, Sphinx is ultimately destroyed by Beast Hyper's Shooting Mirage. At the same time, Wizard All Dragon Style manages to destroy Gigantes Phantom.

Notes

  • Sphinx's costume is modified from Weretiger's costume.
  • His human form's outfit, as well as the tendency for riddles is reminiscent of the Batman villain, the Riddler.
    • This is an allusion to the myth of the "Riddle of the Sphinx".
    • Within the toku community, Sphinx's penchant for riddles is akin to another Sphinx themed monster, Dora SphinxIcon-crosswiki.
