"Like his name implies, he excels at speed strategies. He tortures his enemies with his quick movements, and also enjoys using traps and other sneaky tactics."
- ―Narrator of Ultraman Trigger: Preview Special.
Hudram (ヒュドラム Hyudoramu) is one of the Giants of Darkness and one of the main antagonists in Ultraman Trigger: New Generation Tiga. He uses great speed in battle and is a schemer and strategist, but is the most easily enraged of the three Giants of Darkness.

Befitting Tiga's numerous references to H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos and like his namesake Hudra, he is named after Mother Hydra, one of the Deep Ones. Additionally his name in Katakana, "ヒュドラム", is one letter away from Hudra (ヒュドラ ).
As the tactician behind the team, Hudram relies on his wits during combat, such as his preference to use various forms of tricks. He also has a hidden brutal side. He is comparatively weak, but what he lacks in strength, he makes up for with his nimble maneuvering and brutal cunning on the battlefield. His specialty is psychological warfare, provoking his opponent's emotions and using their own mind against them.
Pre-Ultraman Trigger: New Generation Tiga
30 million years prior, Darrgon and Hudram joined Carmeara in her quest to find the Eternity Core on Earth. The three Giants of Darkness fought against Ultraman Trigger, but lost to him and were put into slumber as stone statues at the opposite end of the universe.
Somehow, Hudram reawakened roughly 100 years ago and did something to the people of Lishuria, which caused Ignis to bear a grudge against him.
Ultraman Trigger: New Generation Tiga
In the present day, Hudram appeared and kidnapped Yuna Shizuma, wanting Yuzare to emerge from her and tell him where the Eternity Core was. Ignis, Kengo Manaka and Akito Hijiri ruin his plan, but Hudram summons Gazort to put Yuna's life in danger hoping that Yuzare would reemerge. He then fought against Ultraman Trigger but was blasted away by the Nursedessei. Enraged at the interruption of his battle, the other Giants of Darkness had to restrain Hudram or he might have ended up destroying the world. With the three Giants of Darkness reunited, they continued their quest to find the Eternity Core.
