Hydra are creatures found in the Karuulm Slayer Dungeon, requiring level 95 Slayer to kill. The use of the boots of stone, boots of brimstone, or granite boots are required to negate the burn damage within the Karuulm Slayer Dungeon. Upon completing the Elite Kourend & Kebos Diary, the player does not need the boots to negate the burn. They are only assigned as a slayer task by Konar. There are two areas within the dungeon where players with and without a hydra slayer task can kill them.

Hydras were created by an unnamed dragonkin as a project which is not based on any prior work done by his fellow kin.

They start off with a random combat style at the start of the battle, switching after three attacks, regardless if they hit or not. If the hydra still persists after roughly 30 seconds into a fight, it will spit poison at three random tiles (one at the player's location, two elsewhere), dealing 4 poison damage every two ticks if the player is standing on one. The initial splat has a 3x3 AoE.

Hydras can drop their eyes, fangs and hearts, which are used to create the brimstone ring. Much like dark totems, the body parts are dropped in order and additional body parts cannot be obtained until players create the brimstone ring.

In addition, they can also drop their tail, which is combined with a dragonbone necklace and a bonecrusher to create the bonecrusher necklace.
