Assassin's Creed Odyssey Mythological Beasts guide: How to kill Odyssey's toughest monsters

We guide you through the mythological missions in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, which puts you against Greek legends like Medusa.

Warning: This guide contains major spoilers for Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

What would a romp through ancient Greece be without bumping into every chapter in your old college Greek Mythology textbook? The Gates of Atlantis quest line in Assassin's Creed Odyssey starts out as a hunt for four ancient relics. As you track them down, you realize that all four relics are personally guarded by a different mythological legend: the Sphinx, the Cyclops, the Minotaur, and Medusa. Each legend comes down to a very different style of boss fight, and they're pretty impressive, too.

They can be really hard to find, though. Looking for unexplored question marks on your map isn't going to do it, as most of these legends only come at the end of long chains of seemingly unrelated quests. Here's where to find all four famous Greek myths and beat them.

1. The Sphinx, level 35
Location: Border between Scorched Rolling Plains and Lake Kopais, Central Boetia.

The first boss fight in this series is not a boss fight at all. It's a boss riddle. A boss debate? You find an old temple with the characteristic black stone of the Isu ruins and a large Sphinx statue in the center. After you help a local archaeologist find his assistant('s corpse) and retrieve an artifact, you can use the artifact to wake the Sphinx after nightfall.

Talking to the Sphinx is a series of riddles, of course, though none of them are too hard because you only have so many dialogue choices to choose from. Keep a little notepad where you jot down your one-word answers ("tree" and "time", for example). After you answer all of the riddles, the Sphinx invites you to walk around the room activating glyphs that match your answers. When you've lit up all the glyphs, the Sphinx screams and dies, and you get the first artifact needed to open the gates of Atlantis.
