Variant of Enigma

Enigmaxes (originally known as Gorgons) is an enemy in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and its remake. They resemble green Enigmas, and are encountered in the Sunken Ship. Unlike Enigmas, Enigmaxes can attack with magic, and are weak to thunder attacks. Their original name "Gorgon" comes from Greek monsters that resemble women with colonies of snakes as their hair.
