Hydron / Nool


Hydron resides beneath the waves off the coast of Icelarn. Originally he was just a small squid that enjoyed playing small pranks on the local fishers, but then he met Valdoll. Valdoll increased both his size and power, making him a god among his own kind, although he still speaks with a slight stutter. With his new power he moves on the land of Icelarn itself, the only one standing in his way being Tessa. He is known as Nool in Japan.

If you really want to troll somebody in Capcom Fighting Evolution... pick Hydron. Deep in the vaults of Capcom's slightly terrible "oddball" character designs, you'll find this squid creature near the top of the list. Indeed, Hydron is a "WTF" design... even for Capcom. A giant sea snail with a trident. I suppose he's an original-looking RPG-like monster and somehow fits into the world of Warzard as one of the baddies. However, the same can't be said about his Capcom Fighting Evolution appearance. He's beyond a "random" choice for that game, considering how many Street Fighter characters are on the roster.

To state the obvious... Hydron didn't quite fit in amongst the Street Fighter (and even Darkstalkers) cast of CFE. On a second thought, he sorta fits into Darkstalkers. Hydron's appearance in CFE was a pretty good reason to not like him, but he's actually better in Warzard. It just seemed like Capcom was trolling us with this character in CFE. To come full circle... Hydron is definitely one of the reasons to play Capcom Fighting Evolution, because where else are you going to play as a character this ridiculous. Hydron's random anime girl version might've gone much further as a design... if Capcom took her seriously. lol
