Magnamalo New Monster.png
Type Fanged Wyvern
Threat Level 7/10 Rampage Type
Major Weakness Water Other Weakness(es) Thunder
Blight / Elemental Damage None Abnormal Status Hellfireblight
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.

Hunting Tips
・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.

Magnamalo Attack Patterns

Full List of Magnamalo Attack Patterns

Scratch A fearsome scratch with its claws
Claw Crash Smashes down on the ground with its claws
Tail Slam Raises its tail in front of itself and slams it down
Hellfire Dust Scatters dust which inflicts the Hellfire status effect
Tail Stab Thrusts out in front of its with its tail
Tackle Leaps ahead in a full-body tackle
Hellfire Blast Flings Hellfire orbs in multiple directions ahead of itself

Tail Swing Swings its tail around to attack
Big Attack: Hellfire Explosion Raises its front legs and unleashes a huge explosion of Hellfire in all directions
Divebomb Explosion Leaps high in the air, then divebombs directly at a target, causing an explosion

Scatter Hellfire!

MHRise Magnamalo Scatter Hellfire

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!

Check out Hellfireblight and other status ailments & elemental blights with our guide here:

Abnormal Status and Elemental Blight Guide

Hellfire Explosion

MHRise Magnamalo Hellfire Explosion

When the color of the Hellfire is reddish-purple, Magnamalo can attack with an AoE Blast attack. The range for this is very large so it is quite difficult to deal with.

Hellfire Tail Stab

MHRise Magnamalo Tail Stab Attack

Magnamalo will quickly stab its tail on the ground to create a Hellfire cone. This attack can deplete your health quickly and causes Fireblight as well!

Hellfire Orb Attack

MHRise Magnamalo Orb Attack

Magnamalo will rush towards Hellfire orbs after firing them. It is recommended to have Wirebugs in handly to quickly evade!

Collect Spiribirds

Spiribirds are incredibly important, especially against Magnamalo who does a lot of damage. Buff your stats (especially your health) and get ready!

Wyvern Riding Is Key in the Demo

If you're playing the second Demo, the Magnamalo hunt has a time limit of 15 minutes! While you can absolutely go head to head with it and slay it alone, it is much easier if you bring other monsters into the fight to deal big damage. The other monsters on the map are Rathian and Mizutsune. Mizutsune is good against Magnamalo since it's weak to water, but Rathian's fire and poison are also great.

Wyvern Riding Guide: How to Mount and Ride Monsters

Ride Rathian When Magnamalo Starts in Area 9

When Magnamalo initially starts at Area 9, we suggest riding Rathian and take the battle to him. Rathian is closer and will save you more time!

Use Endemic Life

This demo will want you to use all techniques to defeat Magnamalo and using Endemic Life is one of them. 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

MHRise Magnamalo Third Wirebug

Magnamalo will hit fast and hard in the demo 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!

Check out the location of Wirebugs in every locale with this guide:

How to Get Rid of Hellfireblight

hellfire status.png

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

MHRise 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

hellfire dust magnamalo.png
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

MHRise 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

magnamalo in enraged state.png
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

magnamalo divebomb in enraged state.png
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

MHRise 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

MHRise 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

MHRise 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

MHRise 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

MHRise Magnamalo Upright Spikes

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

MHRise 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!

Magnamalo Characteristics

Hellfire Monster

MHRise Magnamalo Hellfire Monster

Magnamalo attacks with Hellfire and each part surrounded by it will have increased damage. Hellfire also introduces a new status ailment with unknown effects! We will update this article when the second demo drops!

Second Demo Guide and Features

Hellfire Enhancement

MHRise Magnamalo Hellfire States

Magnamalo will enhance itself with Hellfire as the fight goes on. You can identify it by the presence of Hellfire all over its body.

Hellfire Will Turn Reddish Purple

Normal Hellfire Strong Hellfire
MHRise Magnamalo Purple Hellfire MHRise Magnamalo Reddish Hellfire

After a while, Magnamalo will charge even further to turn its purple flame to reddish-purple. This color is extremely dangerous and Magnamalo will be very agile and have increased attack. We think this is an indicator of Magnamalo's enraged state much like Zinogre's charged state.

Glowing Tail

magnamalo tail.png
Magnamalo has a spear-like tail and glows with a purple aura. The Fanged Wyvern Zinogre often attacked with its claws, but Magnamalo might attack with its tail more frequently.

Hellfireblight: a New Status Ailment

magnamalo hellfire ailment.png
A new status ailment called Hellfireblight is confirmed to be dealt by Magnamalo! When you get hit by one of his purple orb attacks, you get purple fire all over your body. This new status ailment works like Blast which will explode overtime unless mitigated using deodorant, evasion, or wiredash. Only difference is you have to wiredash away to leave a purple flame behind acting like a mine that can explode!

Blast Status Ailment for Magnamalo Weapons

magnamalo long sword.png
Magnamalo's weapons feature the Blast element! If you like this element to deal explosive damage to monsters, then you'll love Magnamalo's weapons! What more, it has weapons for all fourteen (14) weapons types!
