[edit] Description

The Rathalos is an aggressive flying Wyvern, it is more partial to the skies than the ground, as it is referred to as the king of the skies, many aerial related attacks make this wyvern suitable for his title. It is rust colored with tangerine overrides in it's skin, his back consists of spikes. Rathalos's Wings have patterns to attract Rathian it's female counterpart.

In Monster Hunter Tri and onwards Rathalos is now more powerful than it's previous generation, it now spends most of it's time inhaling aerial fire-blight inflicting fireballs and it has dexterous combos. It's appearance has slightly changed, Rathalos now has bright red skin instead of rusty red.

[edit] Simple Tips

  • Stay to his LEFT at all times (if you are facing him, it will be your right, and if you are facing in the same direction, his left!)
  • When injured to a critical point, he will limp to a preset 'area change' flying spot, and go to the cave in FnH or some other spot if he isn't there already. This only applies to the Azure and normal Rathalos though, as the Silver one can't flee.
  • Use two pitfall traps, set one and run he'll fall in. Swing away, run, set the other, and wait till he falls in do the same thing as with the first one this should do a lot of damage.
