Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) - Magnamalo New Monster
Type Fanged Wyvern
Threat Level 7/10 Rampage Type
Major Weakness Other Weakness
Blight / Elemental Damage Abnormal Status
Characteristics
A monster with a carapace like tempered steel armor. The vapor around it is actually the expelling of trapped gases from the hordes of monsters Magnamalo has consumed. This has earned it the moniker "Wyvern of Malic." Its shrouded swings can inflict hellfireblight, which causes one to combust either spontaneously or when hit. Use a Deodorant or a Wirebug to rid yourself of hellfire.

Use Endemic Life

You can use Puppet Spiders to easily ride other monsters and take the fight to Magnamalo or Thunderbeetles to stun. The possibilities are endless!

Endemic Life Effect
Stinkmink Attracts monsters to follow you to a certain area to trigger a turf war.
Wailnard Call out nearby Large Monsters to trigger a turf war.
Puppet Spider Use this to instantly put monsters into a Mountable State.
Mudbeetle Gives monsters Waterblight that softens their hide and receive more damage.
Thunderbeetle Gives monsters Thunderblight that enables any attack to stun them when accumulated.
Blastoad Explodes in place like a small bomb. Magnamalo will go down the first time you use this against him.

Have an Extra Wirebug for Evasion

MH Rise -  Magnamalo Third Wirebug
Magnamalo hits fast and hard so we suggest getting a third Wirebug reserved for Wirefalls whenever you get hit. This effectively allows you to use any Silkbind attack (1 or 2 Wirebug costs) while having an extra Wirebug for evasion.

You can get the third Wirebug by approaching wild Wirebugs in every area. Take note, the third Wirebug is not permanent so take time to replenish it when you can!

Wirebug Location: How to Get and Use Wirebugs

Equip Weapons with Water or Thunder Element

As you can see, Magnamalo is weakest to Water, and its second weakness is Thunder. Exploit this weakness and bring weapons that deal Water or Thunder damage.

How to Get Rid of Hellfireblight

MH Rise - How to Get Rid of Hellfireblight from Magnamalo

Ways to Get Rid of Hellfireblight

Method Notes
Wiredash Can be executed easily (zL + X / A / zR)
Evade After rolling 5 times, Hellfireblight will go away.
Deodorant An item you can get from the Item Box or the Tent that gets rid of Hellfireblight instantly.

Wiredash is Recommended

MH Rise - Use Hellfire Orbs Against Magnamalo
When you Wiredash while afflicted by the Hellfireblight, you leave behind a Hellfire Orb. It will explode after a certain period. When Magnamalo gets caught in the explosion, it will go down (but only once per hunt).

Avoid Hellfire Dust By Going Towards Magnamalo

MH Rise - Avoid Hellfire Dust by going towards Magnamalo
When Magnamalo lets out the ring of Hellfire Dust around it, you can more easily avoid the wave by rolling into Magnamalo rather than rolling out.

Be Cautious of Foreleg Stomps

MH Rise - Magnamalo Foreleg Stomp
The rule of thumb when dealing with stomp attacks is to be near the stationary leg. Magnamalo will execute foreleg stomps for both its left and right legs so only attack when you are safe!

Don't Go Aggressive When Magnamalo Is Enraged

MH Rise - Magnamalo in Enraged State
Magnamalo's enraged state is characterized by the bigger spikes on its back and the reddish-purple hellfire on its body. Its attack power is much higher in this state, so don't force yourself to do aggressive attacks during this state.

Prioritize Evading Big Attacks

MH Rise - Magnamalo Divebomb Explosion
When Magnamalo is gearing up for big attacks, like the Divebomb Explosion and the Hellfire Explosion, you need to prioritize getting out of the way and put attacking second. Sheathe your weapon and get ready to do an Emergency Evade (sprint away and press B when it's close).

Avoid Tail Stab Attacks by Moving Sideways

MH Rise -  Magnamalo Tail Stab Attack
Magnamalo utilizes its tail for its long reach. Whenever you see it charging its tail for a tail stab, move sideways to avoid the attack.

Be Careful of Fast Attacks

MH Rise -  Magnamalo Fast Attacks
When in Hellfire mode, Magnamalo will have increased speed and increased attack. It can easily get out of the camera frame and catch you off guard so we suggest using Target Camera to recenter the camera to Magnamalo!

Quick Tackle Attacks

MH Rise -  Magnamalo Quick Tackle Attack
If you keep on attacking Magnamalo's forelegs, it will decide to tackle you. This attack can catch most hunters off guard because the tells can easily be ignored.

Use Wirefall to Avoid the KO Move

MH Rise -  Magnamalo KO Move
When Magnamalo has Hellfire foaming from its mouth, be ready for its KO attack. It will instantly throw you in the air and explode blast from under you. The first attack will usually not kill you but the blast attack will so use Wirefall to recover and get out of the way.

Magnamalo Enraged Forms

Magnamalo will have various stages of enraged forms as the fight goes on - each more dangerous than the last. Knowing what to do during these stages is key to defeating the Hellfire monster.

Form Description
Enraged Magnamalo will attack faster and harder.
Calms down after some time.
Purple Hellfire Mode Magnamalo will exhuust purple Hellfire from various parts of his body.
Remove by attacking Hellfire parts.
Reddish-Purple Hellfire Mode Magnamalo will coat itself again with Hellfire, making it reddish-purple. Attacks are intensified and movement speed is increased.
Removed after Magnamalo performs the one-hit KO divebomb attack.
Upright Spikes Happens when Magnamalo's HP goes down to a certain level. Magnamalo will become more aggressive towards the Hunter.

Upright Spikes

Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) - Magnamalo Enraged State.png
When Magnamalo's health drops to a certain level, the spikes all over its body will stand upright. Magnamalo will be faster and more dangerous in this state so be careful!

Unique Moves Per Hellfire Parts

Knowing which part of Magnamalo has Hellfire helps in telegraphing the moves it will execute. Be cautious or aggressive depending on how confident you are in telegraphing its moves.

Body Part Description
Face Magnamalo will have Hellfire foaming from his mouth. This form is the most dangerous because he has access to a one-hit KO divebomb move.
Tail Tip After slamming his tail, a Hellfire cone is produced in a straight line.
Back His back will fume and exhaust Hellfire.
Forelegs This usually activates at the same time with its back. Magnamalo becomes more agile at this stage and fly at a high speed.

Expel Hellfire by Attacking Parts

MH Rise -  Magnamalo Expelled Hellfire
By attacking the part that has Hellfire, Magnamalo can be taken down and all Hellfire charges expelled. The part where the Hellfire is present is also its weak points so focus on it when you can!

Hellfire Dust Explosion

MH Rise - Magnamalo Hellfire Dust Attack

Magnamalo will dissipate Hellfire Dust in an increasing radius to apply Hellfireblight to its surroundings and itself. This puts purple Hellfire on itself which increases its attack damage.

When he does the attack again, the Hellfire flames change color which further strengthens Magnamalo and gives it access to AoE Blast attacks!

    • Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.

      Looking good!
