  • Spawned by trading a Shocking Whisker to the ??? at (G-6).
  • Uses Blaster, Chaotic Eye, Mortal Blast and Blink of Peril.
  • Appears to have a slight TP Regain effect that increases in potency as HP falls.
    • Mortal Blast is an instant KO, but can be avoided by turning around.
    • Mortal Blast can be stunned.
    • Blink of Peril will reset the enmity of the player it hits and will lower them to critical HP, similar to Throat Stab from a Tonberry. This is a gaze attack and as such can be negated by turning away. This is especially important towards the end of the fight as the TP gain will allow back-to-back TP moves.
  • Highly recommend two tanks incase one is K.O'd by Mortal Blast.
  • Melee should turn away if they pull hate or if Tefenet looks their way.

Historical background:

In Ancient Egyptian religion, Tefnut, transliterated tfnt (tefenet) is a goddess of moisture, moist air, dew and rain. She is the sister and consort of the air god Shu and the mother of Geb and Nut.

Tefnut is a daughter of the solar god Atum-Ra. Married to her brother, Shu, she is mother of Nut, the sky and Geb, the earth. Tefnut's grandchildren were Osiris, Isis, Set and Nephthys. Alongside her father, brother, children and grandchildren, she is a member of the Ennead of Heliopolis.

There are a number of variants to the myth of the creation of Tefnut and her twin brother Shu. In all versions, Tefnut is the product of parthenogenesis, and all involve some variety of bodily fluid.

In the Heliopolitan creation myth, the solar god Atum masturbates to produce Tefnut and Shu.

Atum was creative in that he proceeded to masturbate himself in Heliopolis. He took his penis in his hand so that he might obtain the pleasure of orgasm thereby. And brother and sister were born - that is Shu and Tefnut. In some versions of this myth, Atum also swallows his semen, and spits it out to form the twins, or else the spitting of his saliva forms the act of procreation. Both of these versions contain a play on words, the tef sound which forms the first syllable of the name Tefnut also constitutes a word meaning 'to spit' or 'to expectorate'.

The Coffin Texts contain references to Shu being sneezed out by Atum from his nose, and Tefnut being spat out like saliva. The Bremner-Rind Papyrus and the Memphite Theology describe Atum masturbating into his mouth, before spitting out his semen to form the twins.
