Description

Fifty years ago in the Blind Rock mines, something happened. Dozens of miners went missing, becoming one of the biggest mysteries of its time. Soon after, the mines were closed and the story became a legend. Nobody knew the true horror that lurked in the darkness of the subterranean realm. After a group of children became lost, H.E.A.T. accidentally found themselves in the heart of the horror. The truth of the lost miners and the danger that befell the kids became apparent. Elsie was sprayed by the creature’s silver and was almost cocooned alive. Additionally, the two missing boys were also located, but time was still of the essence. The silver had almost coated their heads. Thanks to Craven’s laser, H.E.A.T. managed to free the boys of their silver bonds, but the Silver Hydra made its attack. Craven bravely ran in and fired his laser, cutting the cave-dwelling monstrosity into several pieces. However, each piece merely regenerated into a new beast.

As the group ran through the corridors of darkness, Godzilla suddenly burst through the ceiling. He unleashed his atomic fire, reducing the monsters to a silver fluid. However, the fluid began to pull together and a new colossus was created.

Only a handful of smaller Silver Hydra remained afterward, including one that had given chase after Monique and the boys’ sister. Just as the small swarm of monsters reached the group, Craven had begun cutting a hole in the rock wall to flood the cavern with icy water. The plan worked and the river came roaring in. The last of the smaller beasts was washed away, their bodies solidifying and breaking apart in the current.


Powers / Weapons
Silver spray

Silver spray

From small holes on either sides of their faces, the Silver Hydra can spray a silver fluid. Once this spray strikes an object, it will begin to solidify and spread. Victims hit with a sufficient enough will be cocooned in a statue-like state after a short amount of time. The only known way to quickly break the material once hardened is cold temperatures and laser cutting.

   
Liquid form

Liquid form

For faster movement, the subterranean species can turn itself into a liquid-like state.

   
Animated severed tissue

Animated severed tissue

Should a Silver Hydra be cut into pieces, each piece can almost instantly reform into another Silver Hydra entirely.

   
Self-fusion

Self-fusion

The regenerated pieces of its body can merge together to become one giant-sized entity.


Weaknesses
Low temperatures

Low temperatures

Should the Silver Hydra be exposed to low temperatures, such as icy water, its body will start to solidify and break down.

Description

Blasted by Godzilla’s atomic fire, the hoards of Silver Hydra began to merge into one colossal beast. Now a two-headed freak of nature, the monstrously huge Silver Hydra challenged the King of the Monsters. It quickly began to use its silver spray, threatening to entomb the nuclear lizard in the mines. However, when H.E.A.T. broke open the mine’s wall and flooded the cavern with water fed from the springs, the monsters were washed away. The material coating Godzilla broke down while the Silver Hydra tried climbing onto a rock for safety. Seeing this, Godzilla lunged and pulled the two-headed beast back into the cold water, where the icy temperature caused its body to harden and then break into tiny pieces, never to be seen again.


Powers / Weapons
Double silver spray

Double silver spray

Like the smaller versions, the two-headed giant can launch a silver spray from each of the small holes on both of its faces. This spray can quickly coat its target and encase them in a silver cocoon, virtually transforming them into a statue in due time. The only known means to remove this material once hardened is cold temperatures and laser cutting.

   
Unused

Liquid form / Animated severed tissue / Self-fusion

Being a larger version of its one-headed counterparts, the Giant Silver Hydra likely retained all its previous abilities, though they are never put on display against Godzilla.


Weaknesses
Low temperatures

Low temperatures

Should the Giant Silver Hydra be exposed to low temperatures, such as icy water, its body will start to solidify and break down.
