Hydras are another race of underground creatures tamed and enslaved by the Dark Elves. Their origins are unknown, although they seem to be related to the Dragons in spite of their very limited intelligence and lack of magic power. However, Hydras are incredibly strong, and their multiple heads can strike simultaneously at different opponents.
The hydra is the fifth-level creature of the Dungeon in Heroes of Might and Magic V. With its high hit points, it's likely to survive combat, and the Three-headed Attack, Enraged and No enemy retaliation abilities (which lets it attack all creatures in front of it, gives it additional attack for every friendly stack that dies, and stops the enemy from retaliating, respectively) ensures that it will do some serious damage.
