Ecology

Characteristics

The apex monster of the Ancient Forest, also known as the "King of the Skies". A terrible wyvern that descends upon invaders, attacking with poison claws and fiery breath.

Useful Info

Rathalos prefer to stay airborner to unleash their myriad attacks, but a well-placed flash bomb or a shot from your slinger can send them crashing to the earth. Wounding their wings gives them a moment of vulnerability whenever they try to take flight.
