The Hydra is a dragon type monster that was first introduced in Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation, and remained exclusive to the title until the release of Dragon Quest Monsters: Super Light in 2014.


The Hydra is an enormous reptile 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.
