Characteristics

Fire-breathing female wyverns, also known as the "Queens of the Land". With powerful legs and poison-secreting tails, they hunt mainly on the ground. Sometimes seen preying as a couple, Rathian and Rathalos cooperate well.

Useful Info

The strong venom in her tail, along with the wide reach of her sweeping attacks, makes maneuvering around the Rathian a dangerous feat. Cutting off her tail can give you quite a bit more breathing room.

Rajang are said to be loners, and this isolated life has made it difficult to pin down its territorial leanings. When angered, part of its pelt turns a golden color.
  • Terrible wyverns called "King of the Skies". Along with Rathian, they stake wide territories centered around their nests. Rathalos descend on invaders from the sky, attacking with poison claws and a breath of fire.
