The page Riddle of the Sphinx is specifically about the "four legs" riddle. It has ~40% misuse for "any sphinx asking for riddles", (i.e. Riddling Sphinx).

Also, it shares the title with a work that is NOT named after the trope, but after the Sphinx of Giza (the huge building in Egypt). Indeed, in archaeology, the term "riddle of the sphinx" is used to refer to the question of who built the Sphinx of Giza.

In classic myth, the Sphinx has two riddles, only one of them is this trope. In pop culture, there are numerous sphinxes that have riddles unrelated to this trope.

So we propose renaming this.
