The Basilisk is a reptilian behemoth that appears in the game God of War: Chains of Olympus.
The Basilisk is a giant fire breathing, lizard-like monster with razor sharp claws, teeth, spine and a spiked tail. It was utilized as an engine of war by the Persian Empire when it was used to terrorize the city of Attica during the Persian invasion of Attica.
- While rampaging or attacking the city, one of its sounds were recycled from a Vastatosaurus Rex from Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie.
- The creature's design may have been inspired by references from a Spinosaurus and a Dimetrodon.
