[edit] Yian Garuga

The Yian Garuga is a distant relative of the Yian Kut ku. It also resembles the Rathian slightly, in looks and attacks. It is dark purple, has some nearly black splotches, and is slightly 'sharper' looking than the Kut Ku. It has one ear broken, and a meaner look. He has a thick shell so random attacks will bounce off. Their fire balls are unlike the Kut Ku's, as these guys will go until they hit something.

[edit] Attacks

  • Bite
  • Charge
  • Tail Swing
  • Ground Scratch (This isnt an attack, but it still does damage if you're close enough.)
  • Fireballs
  • Screech(HR ear pluges will only cover)
  • Fly back+Screech

As you can see it has some of the attacks that the Rathian and Rathalos share, as well as some of the attacks a Kut Ku would use.

[edit] MHF Garuga

I wanted to include a sub-section on the Monster Hunter Freedom version of Yian Garuga, as it was the 'special' monster for the game. In MHF, the Yian Garuga was elevated to an Elder Dragon style status, with players having to repel the beast many times before killing it. Notorious for a deafening screech and vile temperment, it was a very formidable enemy for even experienced hunters.

The deadly poisoned backflip was borrowed from Rathian and combined with the agility of the Yian Kut-Ku to devastating effect, and even after the Tail had been chopped off it had a huge attack range and hitbox.

The MHF Garuga was also unique, as it grew in size after every kill and guaranteed a kingsize version after around 7 kills. This also changed the quest into a turbo-charged G-rank version, with the Garuga hitting even harder.

Luckily, killing this G-Garuga enabled the creation of some of the best equipment in the game!
