An introductory video for Bishaten's armor set was released on Capcom's official social media channels. It is a blue and white armor that resembles a shaman with beak-like forehead bands. Also, the Palamute and Palico armors were released as well.

Bishaten Characteristics

Bishaten's Strong Tail

Bishaten Tail Stand

Bishaten's unique characteristics pertain mainly to its tail. In the trailer, it is seen standing on its tail alluding that its strength lies on it. It also uses its tail to throw fruits which is one of its unique attacks.

It could be possible that cutting the tail would weaken it immensely making for an easier hunt.

Bishaten Attack Patterns

Fruit Throwing Attack

Bishaten Fruit Attack

Bishaten throws fruits with status effects. In one of the trailers, the hunter is hit by a purple fruit that seems to induce poison. If this is confirmed then Bishaten is a very troublesome monster to deal with.

Tail Attack

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!

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!

    • I saw that Magnamalo has two names: some shoos are selling Magnamalo Amiibo and some shops and selling Magbanaki Amiibo but they’re both the same monster. Why is that?

    • I hope they have different accessories for the Palamute like how the Palico can use Palico Gadgets! Maybe fang accessories which could inflict Poison, etc.?
