In Monster Hunter Rise, you are tasked with defending the peaceful Kamura Village from being destroyed by a horde of monsters stirred into a frenzy by a mysterious phenomenon called The Rampage. These monsters range from Elder Dragons that can destroy entire villages in a single night to monsters inspired by Japanese mythology.

If you hope to save Kamura Village and beyond, you must learn about the monsters you will be pitted against. So, we have compiled a list of all the monsters you will encounter in Monster Hunter Rise. This list will contain what type of monster they are, their unique abilities, and provide a few tips on how to deal with them.

Fanged Wyverns

Fanged Wyverns are four-legged monsters whose characteristics are akin to that of a dog or a lizard. These creatures are often the fastest type of monster to deal with, and they use that speed to disorientate and attack their prey's blind spots.

The Magnamalo is the flagship monster of Monster Hunter Rise and is regarded as one of the most powerful Fanged Wyverns ever seen. This massive, intimidating tiger-like monster has incredible strength and is covered head to paw in blades which it uses to slash its enemies.

But Magnamalo's most dangerous weapon is its ability to produce and control an explosive gas from its body. Magnamalo can fire this gas as small projectiles, smother the area with large clouds to blow up multiple targets, or even use the gas on itself to launch forward like a rocket.

If a player gets hit by this gas, not only will it be lethal, it will also inflict the Hellfireblight status effect. This status effect will cause the victim to explode if they get hit or don't get rid of it in a short period of time. You can use an evasive Wirebug move or use Deodorant to get rid of it.

Magnamalo's power is indeed terrifying, however, it can be used against him. If you can extinguish explosive gas by attacking the spots where it starts seeping out of Magnamalo's body, you will topple him. This will create an opening where you can deal massive damage to the oversized tiger. Also, if you use a Wirebug move to remove the Hellfireblight, it will leave a small plume of flame on the ground, which will trip Magnamalo if it steps on it.

Zinogre is a wolf-like Fanged Wyvern which uses Thunder elemental attacks to shock its prey into submission. It generates electricity by absorbing it from small insects called Thunderbugs. This process takes a long time to complete, but once it is fully charged, all of Zinogre's attacks will obtain the Thunder element and inflict the Thunderblight status effect.

Thunderblight increases the chances of a player getting stunned, and if that happens, Zinogre will crush you with its giant tail and claws. You will need to eat Nulberries to cure yourself of Thunderblight.

Word of warning: Do not use Shock Traps on a Zinogre. As Shock Traps are crafted from using Thunderbugs, they will cause the Zinogre to reach its electrified state instantly without needing to charge up. To knock Zinogre out of its electrified form, you will need to topple him by attacking his electrified areas, just like Magnamalo's explosive gas.

The Tobi-Kadachi is an electrical, Fanged Wyvern that looks like a crossbreed between a lizard and a flying squirrel. It is a highly agile critter and runs circles around its enemies to bite them or smack them with its giant bushy tail. When threatened, the Tobi-Kadachi will fly to a climbable surface area and rub its body against it to generate static electricity in its fur to augment its attacks with the Thunder element and induce Thunderblight.

You will need Nulberries to counteract the Thunder Blight. While Tobi-Kadachi is taking flight, you can use a Flash Bomb to blind him and be forced to make a crash landing.

Jagras are the weakest of the Fanged Wyverns that form packs to make up for their lack of individual strength. These yellow-bellied cowards will only attack prey they consider weaker than themselves and will run at the first sight of potential danger.

The only time Jagras are considered a threat is when a Great Jagras is leading them. However, since Great Jagras are not present in Monster Hunter Rise (yet), you will have nothing to fear from these scavengers.

Flying Wyverns

Flying Wyverns are the most iconic and frequently sighted type of monster you will find in the world of Monster Hunter. These winged devils come in all manner of shapes and claw sizes. Some Flying Wyverns will pick off their prey from the air with projectiles or aerial divebombs. Whereas other Flying Wyverns will stay rooted to the ground and use their wings to travel faster on land or use them as weapons.

No Monster Hunter game would be complete without the series mascot monster, Rathalos. Since its debut in the original Monster Hunter back in 2004, Rathalos has preyed upon hunters worldwide with his earth-shattering roar and scorching fireballs.

In Monster Hunter Rise, Rathalos is now faster and deadlier than ever. He frequently flies over his prey to constantly pelt them with fireballs and slash them with his poison claws. If you get hit by those claws, you will be infected with the poison status effect, slowly draining your health away. And if you get hit by the fireballs, you will be inflicted with Fireblight which also drains your health. The worst part is that both of these status effects can stack, so if you get both, you can kiss your health bar goodbye.

If you hope to survive the wrath of Rathalos, you best pack in Antidotes and Nulberries to cure poison and Fireblight, respectively. To stop Rathalos' aerial assault, you can use Flash Bombs to blind him and send him crashing back to the ground. However, don't get complacent once Rathalos is on the floor, he is still a force to be reckoned with and will try to get airborne again as soon as possible. This monster is dubbed the "King of the Skies" for a reason, and Rathalos will not be denied his home field advantage.

The Rathian is a female version of Rathalos who, in contrast to the "King of the Skies," is dubbed the "Queen of the Land" for her vicious ground-based poison attacks. Rathian is capable of flight but prefers to hunt her prey on the ground. Rathian's poison can be found in her spiked tail, which she uses as a flail. In addition, Rathian can also breathe fireballs like Rathalos and inflict the Fireblight status effect.

Like Rathalos, make sure to pack in Antidotes and Nulberries to fend off Rathian's status effects. Also, if you can cut off Rathian's tail, you can shorten the range of her tail sweep attacks. Beware that the tail can still inflict poison if you get hit by it due to the leaking poison coming out of the amputated limb.

Out of all the monsters within the Monster Hunter franchise, the Khezu is by far one of the creepiest and most disturbing of them all. This living, breathing nightmare spends most of its life in caves, only emerging to hunt for meat when it's hungry. Since Khezu doesn't have any eyes, it relies on its sense of smell to track its prey. Once Khezu has cornered its prey or is attacked, it will let out an ear-piercing scream that will haunt your dreams for days.

Khezu attacks its prey by generating electricity around its body and hurling itself at enemies to crush them under its weight and inflicting them with Thunderblight. If an enemy is far away, Khezu will elongate its neck to bite them or shoot balls of lightning at them. If you get hit by the lightning balls, you will be inflicted with paralysis. This status effect will prevent you from taking any actions and leave you on the ground writhing on in agony.

There is no cure for paralysis other than getting hit by a team member or equipping armor skills that prevent paralysis. Also, since Khezu likes to scream a lot, you will often get immobilized by it as you try to cover your ears to block the auditory assault. To counter this, you can block the roar with shields, dodge it using the I-Frames of evasive Silkbinds moves and dodge rolls, or equip the Earplugs armor skill to negate the roar.

The Tigrex is a bloodthirsty Flying Wyvern that looks like a mixture between a tiger and tyrannosaurus rex. This viscious wyvern will pursue its prey until their neck is locked within Tigrex's massive jaws. Tigrex also attacks its target with tail swipes, tossing boulders with its forearms, and roaring so loud it feels like a miniature sonic boom.

When Tigrex gets angry, its blood will start to boil to the point where you can see its veins glowing red hot. During this state, Tigrex is faster, more aggressive, and can deal way more damage. One way of dealing with a Tigrex is by blinding it with a Flash Bomb which will halt Tigrex in its tracks as it tries to figure out what to do. Use this opening to attack Tigrex or heal yourself and repair your weapon.

Nargacuga is a swift and agile Flying Wyvern that stalks its prey from the shadows before leaping out to slice them with its bladed wings. In combat, Nargacuga will use its speed to jump around the area to attack its enemy from behind. Nargacuga can also crush enemies with its tail and fire sharp spiked feathers out to attack enemies from afar.

Once Nargacuga becomes enraged, the red patches around its eyes will glow, and its speed will increase drastically. The best way to deal with Nargacuga is to cripple its mobility by getting it exhausted or laying down traps to hold it down.

Barioth is a Flying Wyvern that prowls arctic climates to pounce on isolated prey. Many veteran hunters dread to fight this monster because it combines the speed of a Nargacuga with the strength and aggression of a Tigrex. Barioth also has its own tricks up its paws, such as spitting out small tornadoes that force its prey on the back foot with wind pressure.

Barioth can be arduous to hunt; however, this monster has a significant weakness that you can exploit. Its paws have naturally built-in cleats, which keep Barioth's movement stable when running on icy surfaces. If you can break those cleats, you can cause Barioth to fall over for a few seconds and slow down its charge attacks to give you time to dodge out of the way.

While hunting, if you see a boulder start to shake and move, chances are you have found a Basarios. This Flying Wyvern's scales have grown so thick and massive that unknowing hunters have mistaken it for a rock. Basarios is aware of its conspicuous appearance and uses it to camouflage itself against rocky terrain to avoid predators and catch prey off guard.

When Basarios has been discovered, it will attack using its rocky mass to body slam enemies. It can also secrete gases from its body which either poisons enemies, puts them to sleep, or sets them on fire. When Basarios becomes enraged, the glands that produce its fire gas attacks will cause Basarios' body to overheat and grant it the ability to fire concentrated beams of fire from its mouth.

Fighting a Basarios can be difficult at first due to its rocky hide blocking even the sharpest weapons. However, items and weapons which ignore a monster's natural defenses, such as Barrel Bombs or a Gunlance's shelling attacks, can break apart Basarios' hide to expose its weak points. In addition, during Basarios' enraged state, its body will get so hot that its hide will become soft, allowing you to strike while the iron (or rock in this case) is hot.

When it comes to desert-themed monsters, none inspires terror more than the infamous "Tyrant of the Desert," Diablos. This dual-horned Flying Wyvern does not take kindly to any creature wandering into its territory, even its own kind. It will attack without provocation and will not rest until all intruders are dead.

Diablos' primary method of attack is by charging towards its enemy to impale them on their gigantic horns and smashing them with its club-like tail. It can also tunnel underground to dig underneath a hunter's feet to gore them from below.

However, you can stop this attack before it happens by throwing a Sonic Bomb while Diablos is tunneling underground. The ear-splitting sound will cause Diablos to panic and erupt prematurely, getting stuck in the ground. During this time, Diablos is unable to retaliate and is vulnerable to attack for a few seconds.

Recently, a new monster has quickly made a name for itself as one of the most feared Flying Wyverns. This is Bazelgeuse, a giant Flying Wyvern that can convert its scales into explosive bombs. In combat, Bazelgeuse will let out a loud roar and take to the skies to litter the battlefield with its explosive scales. These bombs will detonate after a few seconds, so you can get away quickly if you wish to avoid being blown to kingdom come.

Bazelgeuse's explosive scales also drop randomly from its body while on the ground, meaning you will need to be mindful of your position when fighting this gigantic Flying Wyvern. Even if you're not aiming to hunt Bazelgeuse, you should be prepared to fight one just in case. Whenever a fight breaks out between monsters and hunters, it will make a beeline straight for the commotion and join in the chaos. If Bazeulgeuse rudely interrupts a battle, use a Dung Pod or mount it using the Wyvern Riding mechanic to drive it away.

Bird Wyverns

Bird Wyverns are the second most sighted type of monster after Flying Wyverns. They possess characteristics found in real-life birds and pre-historic velociraptors. Most Bird Wyverns are weak on their own, so they form packs to compensate. The few Birds Wyverns that are strong enough to fight alone are not to be taken lightly, even if they rank low on the food chain.


Source: Capcom (Image credit: Source: Capcom)

Aknosom is a territorial Bird Wyvern that will intimidate intruders with a loud shriek and flaunting its strange head-crest design, which resembles a demonic eye. When threatened, it will attack using its wings and talons in a fashion like a martial artist. Aknosom can also fly and pelt its opponents from a distance by spitting fireballs.

Take care when Aknosom gets enraged; it will abandon its graceful fighting style for a more barbaric approach. It will charge and use the giant frills on its head as a battering ram. Aknosom will also try to use its beak to hit you so hard; you will be pinned to the ground. If you get pinned, use a Wirebug Dash to escape before Aknosom finishes you off.

Great Izuchi

Source: Capcom (Image credit: Source: Capcom)

The Great Izuchi and regular Izuchi are opportunistic Bird Wyverns inspired by Kamaitachi, a weasel-like yōkai (creatures from Japanese folklore), that preys upon weak or vulnerable creatures using claws shaped like sickles. Unlike other Bird Wyvern packs, which seek to overwhelm their target with sheer numbers, the Izuchi pack fight using proper teamwork. The Great Izuchi will command the regular Izuchi to perform choreographed attacks using their sickle-shaped tails and claws to slash their prey to ribbons.

If you wish to have an easier time hunting the Great Izuchi, you will need to out its teammates to even the playing field. When the Great Izuchi is alone, it will desperately try to kill you using its sharp talons and sickle tail. It will also try to spit what looks to be big chunks of rock and dirt at you, damaging both your health and your pride. When it feels threatened, the Great Izuchi will try to call for new regular Izuchi to replace the dead ones.

Great Wroggi

The Great Wroggi is a reptilian Bird Wyvern that hunts its prey using poison attacks. It will spit globs of poisonous saliva or breathe out clouds of toxic gas. When it becomes enraged, the dewlap sacs within its neck will expand, and the Great Wroggi will call forth a pack of smaller Wroggi to swarm their prey.

Packing Antidotes and armor skills which prevent poison are essential when hunting a Great Wroggi. When the smaller Wroggi show up, make sure to take them out to reduce the numbers advantage and give yourself some breathing room.

Great Baggi

The Great Baggi is an arctic-based Bird Wyvern that shares some traits with the Great Wroggi. They both attack their prey using status effects and summoning minions to their side. However, the most significant difference between the two Bird Wyverns is that the Great Baggi's spit will cause the Sleep status effect instead of poison. When this happens, you will struggle to stay awake before losing consciousness completely. During this time, you are completely helpless and cannot take any action until you wake up naturally or by force.

To prevent falling asleep, you can drink an Energy Drink while you're feeling drowsy or equip armor skills that prevent the Sleep status effect. Otherwise, the same strategy for Great Wroggi and Great Izuchi applies — thin the herd, kill the leader last.

The Pukei-Pukei is a poison-based Bird Wyvern with an appearance similar to that of a chameleon. It is a docile animal which only attacks other creatures when it is provoked. The Pukei-Pukei's attacks consist of tail swipes, body slams, and spitting globs of poison.

When the Pukei-Pukei becomes enraged, the feathers on its body will change color from green to red. The Pukei-Pukei will then find a plant to consume, and whatever it eats will change the properties of its attacks. Some plants will grant it the ability to fire giant clouds of poison from its tail or harden its poison spit to the point where it can instantly stun you.

When you get stunned, you will be unable to take any action until you get hit, or you snap out of it by mashing buttons on the controller and strangling your analog stick. To prevent being Stunned, you can equip armor skills that prevent the status.

The Kulu-Ya-Ku is a thieving Bird Wyvern that steals monster eggs when it's hungry or trinkets from a hunter's campsite to decorate its nest. When this Bird Wyvern has been caught red-handed, it will try to fight back to protect its ill-gotten gains. Kulu-Ya-Ku will attack by pecking at its opponents, slashing them with its talons, or jumping on top of them.

When Kulu-Ya-Ku is backed into a corner, it will dig a hole, find a stone or a discarded pot and use it as a weapon. Kulu-Ya-Ku's makeshift weapon not only deals a surprising amount of damage but can instantly stun you if you get hit as well. It also acts as a shield protecting the Bird Wyvern from most melee weapons, causing them to bounce off.

You can cause Kulu-Ya-Ku to drop its weapon by blinding it with a Flash Bomb or causing it to fall over with a trip or KO.

The Gargwa is the most peaceful and harmless of all Bird Wyverns. These creatures usually spend their days grazing on grass and wandering through forests. The Gargwa are sometimes used as livestock or carrying around carriages in towns and villages.

If a predator is nearby, it will flee at the first sign of danger since it has no means to defend itself. When slain, a Gargwa will sometimes drop an egg which is worth a lot of Zenny if you can carry it back to your home camp. Do note that monster eggs are extremely heavy. You will need to equip armor skills that increase your movement speed while carrying an egg and use your Wirebug's dash ability to take it back to base before another monster causes you to drop it.

Jaggia and Jaggi

Source: Windows Central / Capcom (Image credit: Source: Windows Central / Capcom)

Jaggia and Jaggi are akin to Jagras in that they are considered the weakest of the carnivorous Bird Wyverns. Like most Bird Wyverns, the Jaggi and Jaggia form packs to make up for their lacking in strength with an alpha monster leading them, in this case, a Great Jaggi. However, Great Jaggi have not been sighted as of yet in Monster Hunter Rise, so they have been forced to hide and scavenge for corpses left behind by bigger monsters.


Lynians are small humanoids that are just as intelligent as humans. These cute critters form small tribes out in the wild and can help or attack hunters depending on how they're being treated.


Source: Windows Central / Capcom (Image credit: Source: Windows Central / Capcom)

Felynes are the most common form of Lynian and are the Monster Hunter series' mascot alongside Rathalos. Some Felynes live out in the wilderness living on the land, while others have integrated into human settlements. These city-based Felynes help out society as laborers, chefs, farmers, fishers, and most famously as Palicos. Palicos assist a hunter during a hunt by placing traps and using healing gadgets.

If you decide to attack wild Palico, they'll drop a Paw Print or a Round Acorn upon defeat.


Source: Windows Central / Capcom (Image credit: Source: Windows Central / Capcom)

Melynxes are distant cousins of Felynes that primarily reside in the woods. Unlike Felynes, who like to help people out, most Melynxes are out for themselves and rob anybody they encounter, including hunters. If you get mugged by a Melynx, they have a chance of stealing any item from your inventory, whether it's a regular Potion or a Max Potion.

To get your items back, you will have to fight the Melynx until it drops it. If it manages to get away, you will need to find the Melynx's hideout and search through their stash to retrieve your stolen goods.


Fish monsters in the world of Monster Hunter are almost identical to real-life fish, except most of them are twice the size of a person and more lethal.

The Gajau are giant catfish that reside in rivers and marshes. These huge fish are highly territorial monsters and will attack anything that stumbles into their hunting grounds, including both hunters and Flying Wyverns.

Gajau will leap out of the water to ram their bodies into their enemies and attempt to bite their heads off with their giant mouths.


Herbivores are often peaceful monsters who don't pose much danger to hunters. However, some herbivores are territorial and will fight to defend themselves and their herd if provoked.


Source: Windows Central / Capcom (Image credit: Source: Windows Central / Capcom)

Kelbi are deer-like Herbivores that gallop across grassy areas and spend their days grazing on plants. Most Kelbi will flee when a predator is nearby, but a Kelbi with horns will try to defend itself.

After defeating a Kelbi, they have a chance to drop their horns when you are carving their body. These horns can be used to craft Ancient Potions, which heal a hunter's health and stamina up to full capacity in a single bite. However, be sure to carve a Kelbi quickly because most of the time, a Kelbi plays dead to fool its aggressor and will flee the moment its back is turned.


Source: Windows Central / Capcom (Image credit: Source: Windows Central / Capcom)

Anteka are tundra-based herbivores that are like Kelbi but with traits akin to a moose more than a deer. Anteka are more willing to fight back against predators due to their bigger frame and more intimidating horns which they use as battering rams.


Source: Windows Central / Capcom (Image credit: Source: Windows Central / Capcom)

Popos are gentle giants that resemble woolly mammoths. They reside in snowy regions and graze on little plants found in such climates. These Herbivores flee at the first sign of trouble. However, if they spot one of their young in peril, they will stay behind to defend them. Like Gargwa, Popos are used as livestock and beasts of burden to transport supplies and goods across towns.


Source: Windows Central / Capcom (Image credit: Source: Windows Central / Capcom)

Kestodon are Herbivores that resemble the pre-historic Pachycephalosaurus dinosaur due to their rock-hard heads. These creatures reside in desert regions and feast on sparse grass, plants, and even cacti. When another monster or a person wanders into their territory, they will attempt to drive them away by headbutting them.


Source: Windows Central / Capcom (Image credit: Source: Windows Central / Capcom)

Rhenoplos are Herbivores that look like triceratops because they walk on all fours and feature a hardened skull with horns attached. Just like the Kestodon, they don't like other creatures invading their personal space and will attack by charging into them.


Source: Windows Central / Capcom (Image credit: Source: Windows Central / Capcom)

Slagtoth are large herbivores that roam marshlands and grasslands to eat plants and fruit. These Herbivores are territorial and will attempt to body slam any creature who tries to attack them. Unfortunately for Slagtoth, they're so slow and cumbersome that any predator worth their claws will slay them before the Slagtoth gets a single hit in.


Amphibians are a rare breed of monster usually found in aquatic biomes. These monsters have body types reminiscent of real-life amphibians, such as frogs. Amphibian monsters are somewhat slow, but they make for their lacking agility with incredible strength and durability.


Source: Capcom (Image credit: Source: Capcom)

The Tetranadon is a large Amphibian monster that looks like it was inspired by the Kappa, an amphibious yōkai that drags human prey into riverbeds to drown them and eat their organs. This horrific crossbreed between a platypus, frog, and a turtle lumbers its way through the wilderness in search of smaller animals and consumes them whole. Tetranadon attacks its prey by spitting large blobs of saliva, which inflict the Waterblight status effect. While under the effects of Waterblight, your stamina's recovery speed will dramatically decrease, thus limiting the usage of your evasive actions. You can cure yourself of Waterblight by eating a Nulberry.

While Waterblight slows down its prey, the Tetranadon will slap them with its paws and throw them across the area like a sumo wrestler. When Tetranadon gets enraged, it will consume random chunks of dirt and rocks to bloat its stomach size. During this state, Tetranadon's strength increases to the point where it can stomp on the ground to cause small earthquakes and toss rocks the size of a car as projectiles.

To get Tetranadon out of this form, you will need to topple it by breaking its feet or knock it out using blunt-based weapons like Hammers or Hunting Horns. When it's knocked over, Tetranadon will vomit out all of the contents from its stomach and return to normal.

The Zamites can best be described as sharks with legs. They are meat-eating Amphibians that live in harsh arctic wastelands and will attack any creature in sight if they're hungry. They attack by biting into their prey and never letting go of their grip until they're forced off.

If a Zamite manages to live long enough, it will eventually grow up to become a Zamtrios. A massive shark-like Amphibian that can encase its body in ice and shoot beams of ice towards its prey.

Piscine Wyverns

The Piscine Wyverns are monsters that have adapted to live in aquatic ecosystems. They can also walk on land but prefer to hunt their prey while submerged in water to gain the upper hand. Piscine Wyverns are the bane of most hunters' careers, for they primarily fight at long range and specialize in using status effects that cripple a hunter's movement.


Source: Windows Central / Capcom (Image credit: Source: Windows Central / Capcom)

The Jyuratodus is a large Piscine Wyvern that resides in swamps and marshes. Jyuratodus stalks its prey by swimming along the riverbeds and leaping out of the water when its next meal least expects it. The Jyuratodus attacks its enemies by ramming them with its hips, smacking them with its tail, and body-slamming them.

To protect itself from attacks, Jyuratodus covers itself in thick layers of mud to soften blows. It can also fling this mud at enemies, which inflicts Waterblight and restricts their movement. Like with Basarios' rocky hide, you can use Barrel Bombs or Gunlance shelling attacks to blast through Jyuratodus' mud armor to damage it.


Source: Windows Central / Capcom (Image credit: Source: Windows Central / Capcom)

The Delex are Piscine Wyverns that have adapted to swim in the sands of desert regions. These monsters travel in schools to scavenge off corpses of larger monsters who have recently been killed and left to rot.

Delex can be tricky to hunt since they stay submerged most of the time, only emerging to make hit and run attacks before going underground again. You can fish these monsters out of the desert by using a Sonic Bomb to launch them into the air. They'll then flounder helplessly for a few seconds, giving you ample time to slay them.

Brute Wyverns

The Brute Wyverns are a formidable breed of monsters with the body structure and strength of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. As their name suggests, Brute Wyverns rely on brute force to hunt their prey with reckless abandon.


Source: Windows Central / Capcom (Image credit: Source: Windows Central / Capcom)

The Anjanath is the perfect example of what a Brute Wyvern is. A large, towering dinosaur that can chomp its prey in half and crush them underfoot with its claws. In addition, Anjanath can spew fire out of its nostrils and mouth to roast its enemies.

When Anjanath gets enraged, dorsal fins will sprout from its back, and fire will start building up in its throat. During this state, Anjanath's strength increases tenfold, and the fire it breathes can scorch the earth. However, if you can rupture the fire built up in its throat by attacking it, you can cause an explosion inside Anjanath's mouth and topple him over for a few seconds.

Barroths are desert-dwelling Brute Wyverns that routinely cover themselves in mud to keep themselves cool in the heat. They are also territorial monsters that will attack any creature walking within their peripheral vision. Barroth attack their enemies by ramming into them using their crown-shaped skulls and flinging the mud on their bodies as projectiles just like Jyuratodus.

Barroth's crown is sturdy and requires using a blunt weapon to break it apart. When Barroth flings the mud off its body, its weak spots such as its underbelly and hands will be exposed to attack.


Leviathans are giant quadruped lizards that have adapted to live in watery or volcanic conditions. They are similar in frame to Komodo dragons or crocodiles but are thrice as deadly.

Royal Ludroth

Source: Capcom (Image credit: Source: Capcom)

The Royal Ludroth is a water-based Leviathan whose main distinguishing feature is its spongy mane. This mane helps keep Royal Ludroth hydrated while walking on land by absorbing water into it. It can also be used as armor to protect the Royal Ludroth from predators. However, the mane's durability has its limits, and when it is broken, it will cause the Royal Ludroth to fall over.

When Royal Ludroth hunts for meat, it will attack its prey by clawing at them, rolling over them, and spitting mucus which causes Waterblight. It can even expel all the water stored in its mane to launch itself at enemies like a hydro-powered rocket.

Occasionally, a Royal Ludroth can be seen with smaller, regular Ludroth. These young ones aren't as dangerous as their alpha leader but can cause a problem if they decide to team up on you. Thankfully, a pack of Ludroth aren't as coordinated or relentless as a pack of Izuchi or Wroggi/Baggi.

Uroktor is a fire-based Leviathan that swims in the lava of active volcanoes. They sneak up on their prey by tunneling underground and emerging underneath their feet to bite them. They can also spit small fireballs that cause Fireblight.

If an Uroktor manages to survive long enough, it can grow into a Agnaktor. A massive Leviathan is capable of firing heat lasers from its mouth and covers in molten rock for protection.

At night, if you hear what sounds to be a woman singing an eerie song, don't be fooled. Chances are that that singing belongs to a Somnacanth, a fast and vicious Leviathan whose characteristics have been mistaken for a siren or a mermaid.

This monster leaps at its prey with break-neck speed to slice them with its sharp claws or smack them with its massive head frills. The Somnacanth's most life-threatening weapon is its ability to breathe sleeping powder on its prey to render them unconscious. Somnacanth also has a couple of secret weapons in the form of clams, which, when cracked open, can either heal the Somnacanth or blind its enemies with a flash of light.

Mizutsune is a beautiful, fox-like Leviathan that uses water attacks to debilitate its foes. In addition to breathing water-beams which inflict Waterblight, Mizutsune has a unique status effect it inflicts called Bubbleblight by splashing its prey with bubbles. Bubbleblight status causes those afflicted to lose control of their footing due to their bodies being completely covered in slippery soap. To get rid of this status effect, you will need to use a Cleaner to clean it off.

Mizutsune also covers itself in these bubbles to improve its mobility. It can slip and slide across the battlefield to bite hunters in the face or crush them to death using its giant tail.

Almudron is a solitary monster, preferring to spend its life in isolation like a hermit. However, the Rampage has caused this creature to come out of hiding and attack any creature that disturbs its solitude. This dog-like leviathan is inspired by the Dorotabō yōkai, a mud-spirit that haunts negligent rice farmers who have to care for their land.

In stark contrast to Mizutsune, which uses fast and precise water attacks, Almudron smothers its foes with overwhelming tidal waves of mud. It accomplishes this by producing an acidic substance from its tail and using it to melt the ground, splashing it everywhere like a paintbrush. Almudron can also manipulate the mud to harden around its tail and use it like a giant club. It can even erect giant towers of sludge beneath its enemy's feet to launch them into the air.

Fanged Beasts

Fanged Beasts are pure mammal monsters with bodies that may remind you of pigs, monkeys, bears, and even elephants. Most Fanged Beasts are smaller than the other monster types, but they compensate for their size with agility and exceptional strength.

Few monsters in this world can rival the power of Elder Dragons, and one of those rare monsters is the Rajang. This raging beast is regarded as one of the most brutal monsters to hunt in the whole franchise, and with good reason. Rajang is so strong it can toss a Rathalos around like a toy and knock out Elder Dragons with a single punch.

Rajang can also generate electricity from its body to spit lightning balls or shoot laser beams from its mouth, which inflict Thunderblight. If that isn't scary enough, Rajang has TWO enraged states — One where his fur turns golden, and the second is when the muscles on its forearms become so hard that melee weapons will bounce off them. Both forms increase Rajang's strength so much that it can knock out even the most heavily armored hunter in one punch.

To get the Rajang out of this state, you will need to put it to sleep or break its tail to cause a chain reaction that deactivates Rajang's golden form.

Goss Harag

Goss Harag is a gargantuan Fanged Beast that looks like a Namehage, a Japanese Oni (demon), that frightens and scolds children who are misbehaving or being lazy. The Goss Harag prowls the frigid wasteland of the Frost Islands in search of victims to sink its teeth into. It possesses enough strength to rip apart the ground with its bare hands and stand up against large monsters like Rathalos and Tigrex.

Goss Harag can also fire icy blasts from its mouth to inflict its foes with Iceblight. The Iceblight status effect doubles the amount of stamina lost when using evasive actions like dodging or sprinting, causing the victim to be quickly exhausted. Iceblight can be used by eating a Nulberry.

Goss Harag doesn't just use its ice breath for attacks. It breathes on its arms until they're covered in so much ice, they form into jagged blades. This is when Goss Harag is at its deadliest because these ice blades can slice through almost anything. And when Goss Harag becomes enraged, it will freeze both arms to dual-wield two ice blades to carve you up like a freshly cooked Popo. If you can break these ice blades, you can cause Goss Harag to fall over and be vulnerable for a short time.

The Bishaten is a flying monkey Fanged Beast that has visual aesthetics inspired by the Tengu yōkai. Tengu are a bird-like humanoid yōkai, which once was feared as harbingers of war but in modern times are considered divine protectors of forests. A Bishaten is neither a protector nor a harbinger; it is a trickster that likes to pull pranks on monsters and hunters. These pranks involve taking fruit out of its belly pouch and tossing them at victims to inflict various status effects such as being poisoned or being stunned.

When it's no longer amused, Bishaten will become enraged and start to use acrobatics to attack its foes. It can fly to perform corkscrew divebombs and punch enemies with its winged forearms. Bishaten can also use its tail as a club or as a stilt to stay out of melee range while throwing fruit. If you damage the tail while Bishaten is balancing on it, you have a chance to topple it over for some free hits.

Arzuros is a simple bear Fanged Beast that loves to hunt for honey and fish. It loves eating honey and fish so much that if anything tries to interrupt it, Arzuros will attack them with extreme prejudice. It will even get into fights with monsters twice its size like the Tetranadon.

Arzuros attacks its enemies by swinging its hardened forearms, ramming itself into them, and choking them in a bear hug. If Arzuros runs out of steam or gets too hungry it will try to find honey to get its strength back. It will try to steal honey from your inventory if you happen to be carrying any.

Lagombi is a giant rabbit Fanged Beast which lives in snowy areas. Lagombi are normally docile if left alone, but they will attack anything which irritates them enough. When engaging predators in combat, it will dig up big chunks of snow and use them as projectiles or roll them until they turn into giant snowballs. Lagombi can use its smooth belly to slide on icy and snowy surfaces to ram itself into enemies.

Volvidon is an anteater-armadillo Fanged Beast that resides in desert and volcanic regions to hunt for Neopterons. When it hunts for prey, it attacks by rolling up into a ball to charge into enemies like a bowling ball. It can also spit paralytic saliva to paralyze its prey and prevent them from escaping its claw attacks.

When hunters attack Volvidon, it has a special trick to deal with them. It can unleash a noxious gas that inflict hunters with the Stench status effect. Stench prevents you from using your items by covering them in gross substances. You can clean yourself of Stench by using Deodorant on yourself.

Bombadgy is a strange Fanged Beast that looks like an overfed badger. It is the weakest of the Fanged Beasts, and its only form of defense against predators is by blowing itself up. Coursing through its body is a flammable gas that ignites upon getting hit by an attacking hunter or monster. This causes the Bombadgy to explode and fly away like a popped balloon, escaping being eaten.

Unfortunately, the travel distance isn't far and when all the gas is expelled, the Bombadgy's bloated body deflates and becomes helpless for any nearby predator to feast upon. On the bright side, if you're fighting a large monster and there's a Bombadgy nearby, you can use them as improvised rockets by launching them into a large monster's face.

The Bullfango is one of the angriest and aggressive Fanged Beasts in the Monster Hunter series. These giant boars are so bold and territorial that they will fight any monster, including Elder Dragons. Just like Bazelgeuse, it will drop whatever activity it was doing to get stuck into a fight that has broken out nearby.

Bullfangos mainly target hunters, goring them with their sharp tusks to knock them down. It is highly recommended you take out any nearby Bullfangos while hunting monsters. There is a high chance these hog-like monsters will get you killed by interrupting one of your big attacks or knocking you over so a large monster can finish you off.

Snake Wyverns

Snake Wyverns are snake-like monsters that, to this day, only a few of them have been seen. As a result, not much is known about these elusive monsters.

Remobra are flying Snake Wyverns, which primarily reside in mountainous regions. They are scavengers that pick the meat off dead monsters left behind by bigger predators. If Remobra encounter living prey, they attack by spitting poisonous venom or clawing at them.

Remobra aren't considered a threat by themselves, however their presence is regarded as a bad omen. Elder Dragons usually leave behind the bodies which the Remobra scavenge off. So, if you see a flock of Remobra, it may be a sign that an Elder Dragon is nearby.


The Temnocerans are giant arachnid monsters with characteristics reminiscent of a spider. Like the Snake Wyverns, only a few Temnocerans have been encountered so there is very little information regarding these creatures.
