Hunting Tips
・Its vaired tail attacks are incredibly powerful, and sometimes it spins around like a top, so avoiding damage can be tough. But if you use that chance to attack, the beast will drop its fruit and you can pick it up then throw it back. Watch its moves carefully to find your opening.

Bishaten Attack Patterns

Name Description
Colorful Barrage Diffrent types of Fruit Attacks which are randomly made by the Bishaten.
Tail Attacks Acting like a 3rd arm, the Bishaten utilizes its tail with deadly efficiency.

Colorful Barrage

Monster Hunter Rise (Bishaten) - Bishaten Fruit Attack

Bishaten throws various fruits at hunters each with different effects. Typically these fruits will break on impact with a hunter or the ground, but when interrupted Bishaten will drop the fruit intact allowing hunters to take advantage of their effects.

Fruit Name Effect
Poison Fruit Inflicts poison if thrown
Jumbo Fruit Recovers Health
Flash Fruit Causes a bright flash if thrown.

Wall Stick

Monster Hunter Rise (Bishaten) - Bishaten on the Wall.png

Bishaten can use its hand-like tail to hang on to walls and cliff sides and attack hunters from there. Flash Bombs and aerial attacks are a great countermeasure.

Tail Attacks

Monster Hunter Rise (Bishaten) - Bishaten Tail Attack.png

Bishaten also attacks with its tail while holding a fruit. This gives its tail attacks the ability to induce status effects like poison depending on which fruit it is holding!

The Yellow Fruit Stuns You!

Monster Hunter Rise (Bishaten) - Bishaten Stun Attack Yellow Fruit

Be careful when Bishaten puts a yellow fruit that exudes electricity on its tail because this is an AoE stun attack! It essentially acts as a flash bomb so be careful of its large area of effect. Make use of wirebugs and Wiredash away when you're too close. After this moe, the Bishaten will be left with an opening, so take advantage and Wiredash in to deal damage!

The Purple Fruit Poisons You!

Monster Hunter Rise (Bishaten) - Bishaten Poison Bomb.gif

When Bishaten readies a purple fruit, you better keep your distance! The Bishaten will lunge close to its targets and trigger the poison fruit like a bomb. Wiredash away when you have the chance. Make sure to use antidotes or nulberries when you are poisoned.

Aerial Dash Attack

Monster Hunter Rise (Bishaten) - Bishaten Aerial Dash Attack

Bishaten also has an aerial dash attack while spinning like a drill similar to Malfestio. This attack is very fast so be careful if you are using melee weapons!

How to Beat Bishaten

Bring Antidotes and Herbal Medicine

Monster Hunter Rise (Bishaten) - Use Antidotes.png

The Bishaten can cause poison with its fruits, so using Antidotes and Herbal Medicines is a must when fighting the Bishaten.

Attack The Tail

While you can't cut off the tail to completely debilitate it, attacking the tail causes the Bishaten to get knocked down or drop all of its fruits, both of which are incredibly useful.

      Each upgrade level adds 2 points to defense. Depending on rarity the armor will have different levels to max up to. Take the total levels minus one and multiply by 2 to get the total defense plus what the armor started with.
