Hydra is a type of monster in ADOM. They are uncommon monsters that tend to show up around the middle of the game. Their multiple heads allow them to attack the PC at least five times in the one turn, something (s)he should be prepared against if engaging in a battle with one (especially when running low on health).

Monster memory[]

A solitary creature, though the idea of being alone when you have more serpentine heads than a snake pit seems hard to grasp. The creature turns its many sets of eyes in your direction. With a glint in those small pools of amber, you know that this monstrosity acts purely on instinct. And its instincts tell it, it's hungry. You ready yourself for the attack, which if even from one opponent, can come from all sides at once.
