From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Hydra is a dragon-type monster that was first introduced in Dragon Quest III, and has thus far remained exclusive to the title.


The Hydra is an enormous, reptilian being covered in blue scales and bearing five heads instead of one. At the top of each head are red-colored crests that go from the front of the cranium to the base of the neck. In each limb there are four fingers that end in white, sharp claws. It has glaring yellow eyes.
