Hydras are an uncommon type of Notorious Monster of the Dragon family. Hydras are unique in that dealing a critical hit may sever one of its three heads, denying it access to certain abilities. Only the left and right heads may be lost in this fashion. The left and right heads are responsible for Polar Bulwark, Pyrrhic Bulwark, Polar Blast, Pyrrhic Blast, and Nerve Gas Tactical Points abilities, and when the heads are removed, the monster's Regen and Regain traits disappear.
With but one head, the creature only has recourse to Trembling, Serpentine Tail, and Barofield. Besides these abilities, hydras are immune to spiritual-type damage such as is inflicted by a Monk's Chi Blast or the Spirits Within weaponskill. They also enter a "rage mode" upon dropping below 25% HP where their attack power increases, although this increase remains if their regen takes them above 25% HP.
