Guivre - The Guivre was a huge serpent with the head of a horned dragon. It had super lethal breath that would kill crops and spread deadly plagues. Whenever it would emerge from the water, it would leave whatever it touched dead and diseased.

The Guivre was finally defeated and expelled from France when it caught sight of a naked human. This traumatic experience drove the dragon away to the north, where humans tend to wear more clothing.
