|A formidable aquatic serpent that crests on moonlit nights—likely why it has often been mistaken for a mermaid. Despite its appearance, it is extremely aggressive, and tolerates no trespassers on its turf. It expels an intoxicating sleep powder from an organ on its neck, knocking out prey before it can resist.|
|Shrine Ruins||Coming Soon!|
Somncanth was first revealed during the Tokyo Game Awards on December 10, 2020. As the description about it says, it shares similarities with mermaids (which is why it has often mistaken to be one) but it's actually a fearsome monster.
Somnacanth was the target monster during the Switch Axe's weapon demo reveal. Only a few of the monster's actual moves were revealed so stay tuned for more info regarding Somnacanth's attacks and patterns.
It was shown that Somnacanth usually stays in rivers, in the past monster hunter games, aquatic monsters can be fished out or lured out using items that generates a large sound. It is not yet known if the same will be true for Somnacanth so stay tuned!
The frog is used as a bait to fish out these aquatic monsters while the Screamer Pods are used to produce a large sound which will cause them to leave the water and get stunned on the ground.
The Somnacanth was known to use Sleep Attacks against it's enemies. Try to slot in some sleep resistance skills against Somnacanth to make the hunt easier!
It was shown in the trailer that Somnacanth may be able to use heal on itself. This is just speculation for now and will need further testing when the demo is released so stay tuned!
Somnacanth can rush at the hunter to deal damage. This is similar to the running attacks of other large monsters like the Rathalos.
The Somnacanth can use a Headbutt attack against the hunter. It's a large jumping motion so it can be easy to dodge.
Somnacanth has a massive tail and it was shown to be capable of using it to throw several fins at the hunter for a long range attack.

I saw that Magnamalo has two names: some shoos are selling Magnamalo Amiibo and some shops and selling Magbanaki Amiibo but they’re both the same monster. Why is that?
I hope they have different accessories for the Palamute like how the Palico can use Palico Gadgets! Maybe fang accessories which could inflict Poison, etc.?
