Amphibious monster resembling a frog. Its appetite is infinite, and if it sees anything moving, it will gobble it up, dirt and all. It's theorized that the dirt it consumes builds up in its stomach and aids in digestion. If it eats something that it cannot digest it will throw it back up. The cranial disc protecting its tender head is said to harden and become a more brilliant blue over time.

Hunting Tips
・After a large meal, its movements become sluggish, but don't be fooled; its swings become more weighty and destructive as well! Watch for when it moves slowly, strike true, and it'll belch up its dinner and return to normal.

Name Description
Waterball Barrage/Bomb (Regular) Three waterballs are shot at the hunter.
(Expanded) A large waterball drops on the hunter.
Tetrana-splash With a large jump, the Tetranadon will belly flop at its target.
Ground Pound (Regular) A quick stomp that knocks the hunter off its feet.
(Expanded) Beware of this stomp as it deals serious damage and knocks anything off their feet.
Rock Throw A sluggish attempt of the Tetranadon at attacking with a solid projectile.

Kappa Charge (Regular)A snout-first paw swipe rush attack that has a chance of bing done twice
(Expanded) The Tetranadon recklessly charges, gut-frst for maximum efficacy.

Waterball Barrage/Bomb

Monster Hunter Rise (Tetranodon) - Waterball Barrage/Bomb.gif

The Tetranadon is capable of unleashing water balls from its giant gut. It will spit three water balls during its normal form, but when expanded, it will shoot one giant water ball instead. If you are hit by this, you immediately contact waterblight.


Monster Hunter Rise (Tetranodon) - Jump Attack.gif

The Tetranadon, in both regular form and expanded form, will jump high up in the air and attempt to jump on the hunter it targets. It's an attack with a huge hitbox and high damage so make sure to dodge it!

Ground Pound

Monster Hunter Rise (Tetranodon) - Slam Attack.gif

Similar to a Sumo Wrestler, the Tetranadon will raise one of its feet and slam it to the ground. When in expanded form, it will also cause tremors so bringing some tremor resist skill will help. You can easily get out of the range of this attack as the Tetranadon winds up before slamming its foot on the ground.

Rock Throw

Monster Hunter Rise (Tetranodon) - Rock Throw.gif

When in expanded form, the Tetranadon can pick up rocks and throw them at the player. As soon as the rock is picked up, it's a good idea to watch its movements to easily dodge the attack.

Pebble Wave

Monster Hunter Rise (Tetranodon) - Pebble Wave.gif

The Tetranadon uses its mighty paw to send a hail of pebbles with water towards the hunter. This particular splash can be easily dodged as it only goes in one direction. It has the acceleration to rip the sound barrier, so avoid getting hit by this as it can knock you off your feet.

Kappa Charge

Monster Hunter Rise (Tetranodon) - Gut Slam.gif

The Tetranadon will charge at you gut-first with reckless abandon, attempting to knock you out of commission. This move can be blocked with a weapon that can guard. If the Tetranadon is badly injured, it will deflate after charging.

Be Wary of Tetranodon's Front

Monster Hunter Rise (Tetranodon) - Dodging a Tetranadon.png

Most of Tetranodon's attacks are performed in front of it. Always be ready to dodge to one of its sides to avoid unnecessary damage.

Strike Tetranodon's Expanded Belly

Monster Hunter Rise (Tetranodon) - Belly Striker.gif

Tetranodon's belly expands when it eats. During this phase, it is incredibly slow and susceptible to long attack combinations.

Take advantage of this temporary weakness by dealing as much damage as possible towards the belly. Tetranodon's belly will contract and eject its contents after receiving enough damage, causing it to get knocked down.

Rush Attack Can Be Dodged Sideways

Monster Hunter Rise (Tetranodon) - Rush Attack Can Be Dodged Sideways.gif

Tetranadon's Rush Attack is a straightforward move. Move sideways to avoid this attack. Take note that this attack will be harder to dodge if Tetranadon's size is expanded. Beware as the Tetranadon can do a double rush!

Dodge the Clap

Monster Hunter Rise (Tetranodon) - Dodge the Clap.gif

The Tetranadon will attempt to stun the hunter by clapping its massive paws, attempting to trap them between its hands. If hit by this, the hunter will be left stunned. Avoid this move by dodge rolling backward or wirebugging away.

Read the Shadows

The Shadows of the Tatranadon acts as a tell when it attempts a Tetrana-splash or any lunging move. Watch for its shadow as it is about to land, this will give you the idea of which direction you can dodge in.

Use the Wirefall After Being Restrained

Monster Hunter Rise (Tetranodon) - Tetranodon Grab Wirefall.gif

When Tetranadon restrains your character, you are unable to escape and will be slammed on the ground. You can Wirebug away once on the ground since a follow-up attack is guaranteed to follow. Learn how to use the Wirebugs more comprehensively by reading our article linked below

Wirebug Moves and Controls

Bring Nullberries

Monster Hunter Rise (Tetranodon) - Eating a Nulberry.gif

Tetranodon's Water Breath Attack inflicts Waterblight on impact. Always have a few Nulberries with you during the hunt to negate this potential deadly effect!

      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.
