You know, things like this are at times an argument against whimsical localization.




RIRA-JP025 レプティレス・ヒュドラ Reptiless Hydra (Reptilianne Hydraling)
Level 2 DARK Reptile Tuner Effect Monster

You can only use 1 of the following effects of this card’s name per turn, and only once that turn.
(1) If you control only Reptile monsters while this card is in your hand: You can target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; change that target’s ATK to 0, and if you do, Special Summon this card, then take damage equal to that monster’s original ATK.

the snake grill is back with a bite in KoA translators ass because this supposedly the real Hydra while the old Synchro which named Hydra is supposed to be named Lamia

This card looks pretty legit. It specials itself pretty much for free ( the life cost won't matter too much ), and 0s out the attack of up to 3 monsters ( 1 when summoned, 2 when used as synchro material ). 


If you combine that with Reptilianne Hydra, you could draw 3 cards for free while destroying 3 monsters the opponent controls, and you get a 2100 beatstick. Not bad.

It makes me smile a little seeing that they actually made direct support for an archetype that has gotten absolutely none for almost a decade. I think it's just because of Duel Links (Misty maybe?), but whatever. Gives me slightly easier access to Reptilianne Vaskii. Or Hydra depending on which you can pull off first. I like it. I just wish the Life Points cost wasn't as potentially steep.
