Hydra is a demon in the series.

History

The Lernaean Hydra, also known as the Hydra of Lerna or more often simply known as the Hydra, is a gigantic serpent with nine heads, with the center one being immortal. It is one of the spawn of Typhon and Echidna.

The each head that was cut off, two more grew. The monster’s haunt was the marshes of Lerna near Argos. The Lernaean Hydra was killed by Heracles for the second of his Twelve Labors. There were also other Hydra, called Hydrae, that had some physical differences.

In media, a hydra was treated as a sub-species of a dragon.

Trivia

  • According to an interview with Masayuki Doi, Hydra's design in Shin Megami Tensei V took inspiration from ancient Greek pottery.[1]
    • Additionally, Hydra's look similar to having an eyeless mask is designed to give him the feel that it thrashes impulsively, due to mythos of the being blindly destroying villages.[1]
