The Great Games of the Hydra are a series of challenges which 16 Champions compete in on the behalf of the Four Legendary Kingdoms.
The Great Games are a precursor ritual for the Third Trial set by the Super-Ancients, the Diverting of the Hydra Galaxy.
The Great Games have been held since the Four Legendary Kingdoms were founded.
In the Third Great Games, Hercules managed to win every single Challenge, becoming the only Champion to do so.

They are a series of challenges, or tasks, which pits 16 champions against each other, four from each kingdom.
