No one actually killed the sphinx, a man named Oedipus solved her riddle which was "What walks on four legs in the morning, two in the afternoon, and three at night" which the answer is a human with morning being a baby, afternoon being an adult, and night as an old person with a cane. After Oedipus solved her riddle she threw herself off a cliff.

Thanks for the feedback!
no one killed Zeus!!
Greek gods could not die. It only happens in modern American adventure movies or TV series.
No, they are immortal.
it is a god to help them rember how to give thank to people.
Only other Olympians or Pre-Olympian Beings(Titans etc) Could kill each other. A blade dipped in the waters of the River Styx(Bordering the realm of Hades) could injure/weaken… one, but no other force in the Universe was supposed to be able to due so.
Ares. He's the god of murder and bloodshed.
The Greek gods could not die.
only if they were forced too
A greek god did not kill Medusa. She was killed by Perseus, a famous greek hero.
I cannot think of one. There are a couple of instances, though, of father murders.
Yes, at least the ones that are not immortal. No that's wrong In greek mythology no, never for example Cronos defeated his father but in myths Rea ask him and his mother f…or advice when Cronos start eaten his children, speacilly since its explicit that the children Cronos ate were imprision not dead u can se that they were inmortal and could not die also when Zeus ans his brothers defeat the Titans they send them to prision wich show that the titans can not die and about Pan, pan was a satyr i don remember the myth but he have a music duel whit Apolo and when Apolo win he killed pan but pan was not a god, demigods can be killed but the gods and the titans did not age and can't be killed thay can only be defeated, and the people who talk abot God of war its just a video game, in nordic mithology the gods could die, and in Egypt myths the gods could die but not for good for example seth kill osiris but iris colect all the parts of his body and osiris come to life again, another thing is that in greek mithology when something die go to the underworld so never stops existing. I correct some spelling mistakes xD
The Sphinx was the gaurdian of Thebes in Greek mythology. In answer to your question, no one really 'killed' her, except indirectly. She basically comitted suicide because Oed…ipus solved her ridlle. "Which creature in the morning goes on four legs, at mid-day on two, and in the evening upon three, and the more legs it has, the weaker it be?" She strangled and devoured anyone unable to answer. Oedipus solved the riddle by answering: Man-who crawls on all fours as a baby, then walks on two feet as an adult, and then walks with a cane in old age. By some accounts (but much more rarely), there was a second riddle: "There are two sisters: one gives birth to the other and she, in turn, gives birth to the first." The answer is "day and night" (both words are feminine in Greek).
no they're immortal but he could be punished for all eternity i suppose
As a sacrifice, because the people lived with fear of the gods
Ares the greek god never died. He is immortal.
No one could kill Eros. In Greek mythology the Greek god Eros is immortal.
