Hydra 1 (FFXI)

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.

Known NMs of the hydra type are:

  • Hydra
  • Tinnin
  • Orochi
  • Illuyankas
  • Stoorworm
  • Zahak
  • Alfard
  • Natrix

Pandemonium Warden also assumes a hydra form during the battle.

Besides being a monster name, Hydra was also the name of the Server used for the beta test of the XBox 360 version of Final Fantasy XI.

The Hydra is a boss encountered in the trial "A Relic Reborn: The Hydra" as part of the Relic Weapon quest. Crucially, players must fight the Hydra with their unfinished relic weapons in order to complete the quest, putting themselves at a significant disadvantage as they are much weaker at that stage than other weapons of similar level.

Final Fantasy TacticsEdit

Hydras and their relatives, Greater Hydras and Tiamats, are arguably the strongest Monster units in the game. They can fly and use Tri-Attacks such as Tri-Thunder, dealing hundreds of damage to three random tiles in the attack radius. Physical attacks will never miss them because they have 0 Evasion.

EtymologyEdit

The Hydra was one of the spawn of Echidna, a many-headed serpentine monstrosity in Ancient Greek mythology. It could breathe poison, and indeed its very blood was deadly. The Hydra was killed as one of Heracles's Twelve Labors.
