The Tiamat is a Boss and Enemy character in the Final Fantasy games, usually designed as a Dragon with multiple heads.

The Tiamat debuted in the classic Final Fantasy (1987)  where the Warriors of Light have to fight it atop the Flying Fortress.

Tiamat returned in the majority of the Final Fantasy games as one of the strongest boss characters, its design changed every time a bit, but in the most games, it is still a Dragon with three or even more heads, looking similar to a Hydra. Besides being a boss character, Tiamat is also a summon in some of the games including Final Fantasy Dissidia (2008)
