|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.|
Bold are the recommended Weapon Type and Elemental Damage.
Higher numbers indicate higher potential damage to the monster.
The majority of Magnamalo's attacks involve its hellfire. If you become afflicted with hellfireblight, Wiredash to rid yourself of this status. You can counter its attacks by focusing on parts of its body that are emitting hellfire. If you can manage to ignite any of the vapor with your attacks, you can deal massive damage.

How to get rid of Hellfireblight
Avoid Hellfire Dust by going towards Magnamalo
Don't go aggressive when Magnamalo is enraged
Prioritize avoiding big attacks
|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.|
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!
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.
|Wiredash||Can be executed easily (zL + X / A / zR or Middle Click + Left Click / Right Click / MB4)|
|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.|
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).
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.
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!
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.
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).
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.
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!
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.
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 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.
|Enraged||Magnamalo will attack faster and harder.
Calms down after some time.
|Purple Hellfire Mode||Magnamalo will exhaust 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, and Magnamalo will become more aggressive towards the Hunter.|
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!
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.
|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.|
By attacking the part that has Hellfire, Magnamalo can be taken down and all Hellfire charges expelled. The parts where the Hellfire is present are also its weak points so focus on them when you can!
Magnamalo uses the following attacks in Low and High Rank quests.
Normal: Its claws smash the ground.
Hellfire Mode: Smashing its claws to the ground is followed by successive Hellfire explosions.
|Tail Slam||Raises its tail in front of itself and slams it down.|
|Hellfire Burst||Quickly unleashes a burst Hellfire in all directions.|
Normal: Thrusts out in front of its with its tail.
Hellfire Mode: After the stab the tail releases dust powders that explodes into Hellfire.
|Dive Tackle||Leaps ahead in a full-body tackle|
|Hellfire Orbs||Flings orbs of Hellfire to multiple directions.|
|Hellish Bite||Bites with its massive jaws.|
|Tail Swing||Swings its tail around to attack its foe.|
Snatch & Blast
|Magnamalo snatches its foe with its jaws, throws it upwards then ignites Hellfire to the ground where it will land.|
Hellfire Dust Explosion
|Scatters dust which inflicts the Hellfire status effect then triggers an explosion from all directions.|
|Leaps high in the air, then divebombs directly at a target, causing an explosion.|
|Charges its tail then thrusts it forward to release the charged Hellfire energy, forming a temporary vortex of Hellfire.|
|Claw Crash Attack Information|
Claw Crash: Magnamalo will drag its heavy claws to the ground. This attack gets a power up when he enters Hellfire Mode. Be wary because in this mode Claw Crash is accompanied by an explosion.
|Tail Slam Attack Information|
Tail Slam: Magnamalo will vertically slam its tail to ground in the direction of its foe. Quickly evade sideways when you see it raising its tail.
|Hellfire Burst Attack Information|
Hellfire Burst: Magnamalo will exhausts dust quickly, then trigger an explosion around its body. Different from the usual Hellfire dust explosion you won't see much of the Hellfire clouds it releases.
|Tail Stab Attack Information|
Tail Stab: Magnamalo will thrusts its tail forward reaching its target even from a distance. When you see its tail burning with Hellfire, expect that after it thrusts its tail it will release dusts that explodes in a matter of seconds! Dodge roll or wirebug away from the dust to avoid the explosion.
|Double Dive Tackle Attack Information|
Double Dive Tackle: Maganamalo will leap upwards then dives its body to its foe. It can do it consecutively, sometimes followed by a rain of Hellfire Orbs! Be on your toes after dodging the first tackle and expect for second tackle or for Hellfire Orbs.
|Hellfire Orbs Attack Information|
Hellfire Orbs: Magnamalo will rush towards Hellfire orbs after firing them. It is recommended to have Wirebugs in hand to quickly evade!
|Hellish Bite Attack Information|
Hellish Bite: A short distance attack where Magnamalo bite foes within its range.
|Tail Swing Attack Information|
Tail Swing: Sometimes after Maganamalo slaps its tail, it will swing its sharp tail around slicing its foe.
|Snatch & Blast Attack Information|
Snatch & Blast: After grabbing its target with its bite Magnamalo will fling its opponent upwards. Then set an explosion below where the target is expected to land. This could cause instant KO but you can Wirebug away from impact while in midair.
|Hellfire Dust Explosion Attack Information|
Hellfire Dust Explosion: 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!
▶ Status Ailments and Elemental Blights Guide
|Divebomb Explosion Attack Information|
Divebomb Explosion: It's a quick charge attack where Magnamalo leaps and zooms down on its foe's location. There will be an explosion once it hits the ground. Best to stay clear when you see him leaping or use a flash bomb to cancel this attack when Magnamalo is in midair.
|Hellfire Vortex Attack Information|
Hellfire Vortex: Magnamalo will charge its tail, moving it in a circular motion then releases a vortex Hellfire to its target. This attack can deplete your health quickly and causes Hellfireblight as well!
