First off, Whether or not you’re a pony doesn’t determine whether you get a name XD. Griffons, Hipogriffs, dragons etc. have names. Even plain old animals have names. Angel bunny, tank, etc.
There are many mythical sphinx’s not just one.
’Sphinx (Character)’ won so whats the issue? You got what you wanted. Heck, even I can admit ’Sphinx (Character)’ is a better name then bloody ’Nekopatra’
The mlp sphinx’s intelligence is what elevates her. She can speak and be decisive and has motivations spanning beyond just eating and sleeping. The manticore is a terrible comparison.The Manticore can’t talk, its hard to reason with, it’s aggressive, wild and basic. Intelligence and arguably sentience is what separates the sphinx from the manticore and other monster creatures in the show.
People make Sphinx OCs because sphinx’s are intelligent and great character bait

@Wispy Tuft
The Sphinx herself is a canon character who’s based on the actual mythical Sphinx, just like the chimera, manticore, Orthrus and Cerberus. The reason she had a pony face mirrors the Sphinx having a human face. So hence, she’s classified as a creature more than a pony and hence don’t need a name.

But since there are people who see her a pony more than beast and the fact that she indeed had a pony face as their reason. They draw their OCs with lion bodies anyway.

Man, I find it interesting that people would draw Sphinx-like characters for whatever purposes while there is on fact a canon Sphinx with no name.

no. "the sphinx", as a tag, aliased into "sphinx (character)". nothing else would change: sphinx would search for the species, "sphinx (character)" would search for the character, but "the sphinx" would also search for the character.

well how about, assuming there are no objections from cheezedoodle, i alias "the sphinx" into "sphinx (character)" so typing "the sphinx" into your search bar will work? we’ll still do all the other aliasing we said we’d do; this is just a functionality thing.

because i’m rather sweet like that.

@Dustcan
It just makes it a pain when using the searchbar

It would probably be a good idea to add something like "For the big purple Sphinx who clashed with Somnambula, see sphinx (character)" to the tag description for sphinx.

@ Exhumed Legume
I’d prefer The Sphinx over Sphinx (Character)

As anyone who’s tried to search for songs or band names in certain places can tell you, search criteria which include "the" can be a an enormous hassle.

I like the other 3, but Imma be crying myself to sleep for some time over "(character)" still being a part of Sphinx’s tag.
This, too, is my only problem with the winners.
Necessary evils :c
