Attack of the Sphinx is the eighth episode of the sixth season of Winx Club.


The battle between the Winx and mummies continues as Selina summons the Sphinx to attack. Bloom spots Selina in the library, but just as she is about to ask what is going on, Selina sets the place on fire, and the fight heats up.


Selina awakens the Sphinx and unleashes it upon the whole city of Alexandria, causing the Winx to halt their search for the Fairy Godmother's diary.


The Sphinx running across the sky.

The Winx continue to battle the mummies. Daphne explains the mummies weaknesses being their bandages, and quickly attack accordingly struggling as the disguised Trix watch gleefully seeing the Winx struggle. Chatta quickly realizes that the most effective way to eliminate their enemies was simply to unwrap their magic bandages, and they make short work of the enemies. The Trix are released from their protective barrier, though Darcy is irritated, Icy keeps her cool and reassures her sisters of Selina's capabilities. At cloud Tower, Icy contacts Selina to let her know of the mummies' defeat, requesting for a new villain.

Eldora's Diary.

Selina summons the Sphinx, which begins to wreck havoc on Alexandria. The Winx start their search for the diary, but are forced to deal with it and lead it away from the Lost Library and the tourists. While they are busy, Selina teleports to the Library of Alexandria to find Eldora's diary and destroy it because it is the only link to telling how to seal the Legendarium for good. Due to the fight with the Sphinx, the Library of Alexandria is about to get buried under rubble and become lost forever. Bloom heads back to Library of Alexandria to look for the diary before it also gets lost. The rest of the girls, after a harrowing fight, are given a chance by the Sphinx to stop it by solving its riddle with only three tries: "There are millions of books in the Lost Library. How many letters are there in those books?".

A surprise reunion.

Meanwhile, Bloom uses her senses to find the diary, then is shocked at the appearance of Selina, who is revealed to be a childhood friend of hers. Selina uses that to fool Bloom and after that she insensibly causes the Library to collapse even more. This allows her to escape, while Bloom does not see her, although without Eldora's Diary.

Younger Selina.

Chatta impulsively shouts out a random large number, which probably is not even a real number, and wastes the first chance. Tecna uses a program to calculate the number and gives her rough estimates. To her shock, it is also wrong. With one try remaining, Chatta figures out the riddle; the first part of the riddle is a distraction to over-think it, and the answer is 10. There are ten letters in "those books". The Sphinx is shocked that his riddle is solved and screams in disbelief as it is once again sealed.

Bloom digs her way through the debris and falling rocks to the surface. Everyone congratulates Chatta on solving the riddle. Bloom then shows the diary that she found in the Library. After reading the diary, Winx decide to follow Eldora's path using the air balloons. And the Trix will be there waiting for the right moment to strike.

Major Events



Spells Used




  • Due to the fact that the Winx (minus Bloom) originated from the Magic Dimension, they do not know much about the Sphinx statue.
  • When Daphne attacks, she summons a particular element for power; e.g. "I call upon the power of Water! Dome of the Ocean".
  • Interestingly, Daphne seems to know more about Ancient Egyptian culture than Bloom does. This might be because she is the teacher of Magical History at Alfea.
  • Daphne casts a convergence spell with the other Winx (minus Bloom) even though she has Sirenix powers while the Winx have Bloomix powers.

Well, you could say I have a way with words.


All these ancient civilization is just ranging in a word puzzle? What a joke!


Oh man! These mummies are all over the place!


Yoo-hoo, Mr. mummy!


I know, we got to stay alert. We're within wading distance.


We wouldn't miss this for the world.
