NAME ORIGIN
    Fire is the instance of combustion in which fuel or other material is ignited and, combined with oxygen, gives off light, heat and flame. It is one of the four classical elements present in the old world mythologies. The word comes from the Old English word fyr. The Hydra was a multi-headed snake from Greek mythology that inhabited the lake of Lerna in Argolid. One of the monstrous offspring of Typhon and Echidna, it was the guardian of the entrance to the underwold found beneath the lake. When one of the creature's heads was cut off, two more would grow back in its place. The great hero Hercules killed the Hydra as one of his Twelve Labors by burning the stumps of the decapitated Hydra's heads so that they could not grow back. The word comes from the Greek Hudra, meaning "water serpent".
    In the original NES release of Final Fantasy, the Fire Hydra was named R.Hydra, which was an abbreviation of Red Hydra.
