The Chimera Laboratory is a location in Mother 3. It is located to the left of Club Titiboo and Murasaki Forest. It belongs to the Pigmasks, and is filled with equipment, animal and Chimera skeletons, preserved bodies, as well as a few live Chimeras. Dr. Andonuts works here as one of the head scientists.

Chimera Lab is a three story building with a basement. The entrance is on the first floor, the room on the right is a projector room, with a backstage which can be accessed by going on the stage and to the right, with an access to the second floor in the backstage. Back at the entrance, the leftmost room leads the restrooms. The door north of the entrance is the hallway, which contains several rooms and access to the second floor via the elevator or two staircases. The leftmost room contains access to the basement and the freezer room.

The second floor of the building has many different rooms. The room next to the elevator in the hallway leads to a hot tub that can be used as a Hot spring. A vending machine is found in the top rightmost room from the hallway. The leftmost rooms have several chimeras on display, be it as a skeleton in one room and models of their bodies in another.

On the first floor, the leftmost room has an elevator which can be used to access the basement. The basement contains three rooms where chimeras are meant to be kept. The third floor is a single hallway with a room to the left.


When Lucas arrives, he is again mistaken for a member of the army, and is given a part-time job in the laboratory. Pigmasks will not attack Lucas in this area during this time, although he cannot leave the vicinity.

Salsa and his girlfriend Samba are roaming around in the laboratory, and causing a problem for the Pigmasks, as they need Salsa's assistance to open a door to one of the Seven Needles. Lucas has been assigned to help find and capture them. After an encounter with them, leaving the room triggers a boss fight against the Almost Mecha-Lion.

After an encounter with the Almost-Mecha Lion, Lucas is informed of a "red Chimera with a huge mouth" and is also told how dangerous it is. After finding Salsa and clearing the area, the Ultimate Chimera is no longer a threat, but Pigmasks will recognize Lucas as an enemy, and will attack him.

After this, the Laboratory serves little to no purpose other than a few enemies needed for the Battle Memory.
