There exists a variety of monsters in the universe of "Arifureta". Monsters have a unique trait of being able to manipulate mana, without the need of any Magic Circle or Incantation, and each one of them have unique racial Skills, ranging from ranged attacks to faster movement skills. They were created by Freid Bagwa by using a form of Ancient Magic by clearing the Great Labyrinths.
Monsters are created when an animal has enough mana absorbed into their body that transforms them. As a result of this process, monsters have cores of crystallized mana in their bodies that can be of great value. They gain powers by eating meats of humans and other monsters.
Monster meat is extremely poisonous and lethal to anyone who consumes them as consuming it destroys a persons body from inside on a cellular level and tries to rebuild its structure, which a body won't be able to handle unless its able to rapidly regenerate and heal itself. The only way known to be able to survive after consume monster meat is through consuming Ambrosia, a drink formed of concentrated liquefied mana released from a legendary crystal known as the Divinity Stone when the latter eat the monster meat and drink the liquefied mana and turn into a human/monster hybrid.
Monsters hybrid has appetite for ordinary monsters by devouring them into their body to absorbed their mana and might. They are immune the intoxication from their meat. According to Cattleya if the hybrids are anything like the ordinaries, their monstrous and inhuman strength were checked out.

Physically, it looks like a huge serpentine creature, with a hard shell body and six-heads. Each of the heads of the Hydra are differently colored (in the LN and Manga, each one had a different-colored pattern engraved into its head instead) and a pair of dark red eyes. Each head has its own unique ability along with physical attacks, which compliments the other heads, thus being akin to a perfect balanced party.

- "Yellow" Head - Defense, limited ability to morph surrounding terrain
- "Black" Head - De-buffer/Illusion, inflicts Fear Status

Human/Monster Hybrids Edit
Human/Monster hybrids are rare species of humans who gained monstrous appearance and inhuman strength through mutations from consuming monsters' meat and drinking liquefied mana. Their original bodies changed into muscular and taller body. Their strength, speed, senses are stronger then beastmen and their mana is even more powerful than normal mana blessed humans, and demons. Due to withstanding the fatal ingestion of monster flesh, they can further increase their stats and gain the special magic/skills of the monsters that they absorb. They have purple spiked bloods cells, red tattooed-like veins even both their hair turned from original to white and eyes turned to crimson red. Their mana turned from normal to crimson. Only Restoration magic can recover a Human/Monster hybrid's full condition.
