First appearance Godzilla: Rage Across Time #2

The Hydra is a mythological creature that originated in ancient Greek mythology, and is featured in issue #2 of Godzilla: Rage Across Time.


The Hydra's name stems from the Greek work hydros, meaning water-snake, as the Hydra in the Heracles myth from which it originates is partially aquatic.[1]


The Hydra is orange in color with three clawed toes on each of its two feet. It has a frill on the backs of its heads, and small green eyes with purple eyelids on either side of them. It stands on two legs, has no arms, and has a fan-like fin on its tail.


As an animalistic minion of Zeus, the Hydra merely displayed obedience to Zeus in the form of attacking Godzilla upon being summoned by the god.


Godzilla: Rage Across Time

After Godzilla appeared in ancient Greece, the god Poseidon was sent to defeat him. He was ultimately unsuccessful, and Godzilla reached Olympus in a tidal wave. Zeus, the king of Olympus, then called for the Hydra to defend Olympus. The Hydra quickly bit Godzilla's arm, which prompted it to tear off the Hydra's head. While Hydra's two new heads were growing in, Godzilla blasted them with his Atomic Ray, causing four heads to reform. Zeus then sent a lightning bolt at Godzilla, allowing the heads to mature completely, but at that point, Godzilla learned from his mistakes, bit into one of the Hydra's necks and tore flesh from its back, and tackled the Hydra into Mount Olympus. The mountain then crumbled on top of the Hydra and killed it.


Physical Abilities

The Hydra served as a minion of Zeus in the form of attacking enemies or providing protection upon its summoning. Though it couldn’t match Godzilla in any regard, the Hydra managed to draw blood from Godzilla with its jaws.

Head regrowth

Like its real life mythological counterpart, the Hydra has the uncanny ability to regrow two heads whenever one is cut off.


In complete spite of its strength and regenerative capabilities, the Hydra was no match for Godzilla, who ultimately killed the serpent by ramming it into Mount Olympus, burying the Hydra underneath rubble. The regenerative capabilities of the Hydra were proved incapable of revitalizing itself after being buried by the destroyed Mount Olympus.
