Sphinx Jr. is an enemy from Wario: Master of Disguise. They are found in Poobah the Pharaoh's Pyramid and look like a smaller version of the Sphinx. It attacks by shooting energy balls at Wario. Sphinx Jrs. are also spawned by Poobah the Pharaoh during his boss battle along with K9 Cannons, where he uses them as projectiles. However, Genius Wario can use his boxing glove to knock them back into the Pharaoh.
