Bishaten Hunting Tips

MH Rise - Bishaten

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.

How to Beat Bishaten

Bring Antidotes and Herbal Medicine

MH Rise - Use Antidotes when Hunting Bishaten

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

Attack The Tail

MH Rise - Bishaten Swiping 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 its fruits, both of which are incredibly useful.

Use Its Fruits Against It

MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Use Fruits Against It

Whenever you knock down a Bishaten by damaging its tail enough, you'll be able to pick up the fruits it drops and use them against the monster! It will usually drop Poisonfruit, and you'll need to hit it at least 3 times to poison it.

Prepare Against Flashes

MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Prepare Against Flashes

Bishaten has a fairly obvious tell for when it will try to stun you with the Flashfruit. Weapons with shields and counters can easily block this while others can use this opportunity to prepare their Wirebugs or panic dive to avoid getting stunned. Flashes also become a non-issue with Stun Resistance Lv 3, giving you a great opportunity to deal plenty of damage.

Bishaten Master Rank Attack Patterns

In addition to its attacks in Low and High Rank quests, Bishaten uses the following attacks in Master Rank.

Name Description
Poisonfruit Slam Bishaten slams two Poisonfruits on the ground and leaves a poisonous mist.
Fruity Aerial Dash An upgraded Aerial Dash where Bishaten now throws fruit while moving.

Poisonfruit Slam

Poisonfruit Slam Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Poisonfruit Slam
Poisonfruit Slam: This is regular Bishaten's version of its subspecies' Explosive Arm Slams. It slams two Poisonfruits on the ground, leaving poisonous mist for a few seconds.

Fruity Aerial Dash

Fruity Aerial Dash Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Fruity Aerial Dash
Fruity Aerial Dash: In Master Rank, Bishaten now throws around fruit during the Aerial Dash attack. Watch out for any fruit that might hit you along its trail.

Name Description
Fruit Flinging Bishaten throws around fruit with its arms and tail as a means of attack.
Bishaten Roll Bishaten does repeated somersaults while moving forward.
Wall Cling Bishaten attaches itself to a wall and attacks nearby hunters.

Aerial Dash Bishaten dashes through the air in a spiral pattern, hitting everything in its path.

Fruit Flinging

Fruit Flinging Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Colorful Barrage
Colorful Barrage: Bishaten throws various fruits with different effects at hunters. 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. You'll know it's about to use this attack when it holds two different fruits while standing on its tail.
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Triple Fruit Tail Throw
Triple Fruit Tail Throw: Bishaten hurls three Jumbofruit toward hunters with its tail. Their trajectory has a slight arc, so watch out for any incoming fruit.
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Jumbofruit Throw
Jumbofruit Throw: Bishaten throws a single Jumbofruit at its target. This should be easy to avoid and leaves Bishaten open for a while.
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Poisonfruit Throw
Poisonfruit Throw: Bishaten throws one Poisonfruit at its target with both its claws while moving. Since Bishaten moves around for this attack, it's a bit harder to track where it's aiming at.

The colored fruits that Bishaten can throw have different effects.

Fruit Name Effect
Poisonfruit Inflicts poison if thrown
Jumbofruit Recovers Health
Flashfruit Causes a bright flash if thrown
(High and Master Rank only)
Can inflict paralysis when thrown

Bishaten Roll

Bishaten Roll Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Roll
Bishaten Roll: True to its tengu-like nature, Bishaten is agile and can perform several somersaults to move forward. It can do this twice in succession when enraged.

This move starts with a handstand, so prepare to evade it by going sideways as it can't change direction during its flips.

Wall Cling

Wall Cling Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Wall Cling
Wall Cling: 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. If it manages to stay on for long enough, it will do an Aerial Dash to leave the wall.

Tail Attacks

Tail Attack Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Upward Swing
Upward Swing: Bishaten does a handstand and then quickly swings itself upward. The momentum allows it to damage anything along its path. Most of the attack's range also comes from its tail, so try evading toward the monster rather than away from it during its handstand.
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Triple Tail Slam
Triple Tail Slam: Bishaten performs three flips with its tail, slamming it on the ground at the end of each flip. Getting hit by any of these will knock you back. Before it performs this attack, it will spread its wings while doing a small roar.
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Gliding Tail Slam
Gliding Tail Slam: Bishaten can glide for a brief moment to close the distance with its target. Afterward, it heavily slams its tail on its opponent.

Fruit Tail Attacks

Fruit Tail Attack Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Flashfruit Tail Attack
Flashfruit Tail Attack: Be careful when Bishaten puts a yellow fruit that sparks 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. After this move, Bishaten will be left open, so take advantage and Wiredash in to deal damage!
MH Rise - Bishaten Poison Bomb
Poisonfruit Tail Attack: When Bishaten readies a purple fruit, you better keep your distance! The Bishaten will lunge close to its targets and trigger the Poisonfruit like a bomb. Wiredash away when you have the chance. Make sure to cure the poison if you're hit.
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Parafruit Tail Attack
Parafruit Tail Attack: This attack is similar to the Poisonfruit Tail Attack, but Bishaten will use green fruit instead. Unlike poison, there's no immediate cure for paralysis, so avoid this move as well.

Claw Swipes

Claw Swipe Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Balancing Claw Swipes
Balancing Claw Swipes: While balancing on its tail, Bishaten will use its claws to attack nearby hunters. It will swipe each claw at least once, so try to find an opening to hit its tail.
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Claw Swipe Combo
Claw Swipe Combo: Bishaten will swipe its claws twice and then follow it up with a tail slam. In Master Rank, it will sometimes change the tail slam to a Poisonfruit slam.

Aerial Dash

Aerial Dash Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Bishaten Aerial Dash
Aerial Dash: Bishaten also has an aerial dash attack while spinning like a drill. This attack is very fast, but only has one direction. Watch out for when it's winding up for the attack and where it's headed to evade accordingly.
