The name "Tricephalon" stems from the word tricephalous, meaning "having three heads" and stemming from tri- ("Three" in Latin and Greek) and cephal- or cephalo- ("relating to the brain or head" in Ancient Greek).
The Tricephalon is a three-headed, quadrupedal monster similar to King Ghidorah. Given his serpentine appearance, Tricephalon also bears resemblances to the Ancient Greek mythological creature, the Hydra. Tricephalon also has a spine sail similar to that of a Dimetrodon.
The Tricephalon's only known ability was that it could fire some sort of laser beam from each of its three heads.
- Tricephalon is similar in name and appearance to the Marvel Comics monster Tricephalous in both name and concept.
- HG Toys would re-use the Tricephalon molds for a dragon in a "Sword & Sorcery" playset although it is repainted red.
