Sekhmet Gossip

Spotted... on Mount Olympus or Asgard. xoxo Gossip Shmoop

"Sekhmet" is the name given to cat or lion enemies that appear to fight adventurers in both the Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy XI role-playing video games.

There's a black metal band called Sekhmet in the Czech Republic. Maybe the goddess could teach them how to growl louder?

Even more Sekhmets in space: The AI/computer systems of the UNSC Everest (Admiral Cole's flagship during the Second Battle of Harvest in the Halo video games) was named Sekmet. Even though her name wasn't spelled right, she looked the part, as a lion-headed woman whose eyes changed color.

On Venus, there's a volcano named Sekmet Mons, or "Mountain of Sekhmet." Hot!
