How to Beat Royal Ludroth

Stay Alert When Royal Ludroth is on Water

MH Rise - Stay Alert When Royal Ludroth is on Water

Royal Ludroth will always try to keep its spongy mane hydrated as this makes its attacks deadlier! Always stay on your toes and be ready to dodge at a moment's notice whenever he runs towards bodies of water.

Annihilate the Ludroth First

MH Rise - Annihilate Ludroths First

Sometimes, Ludroth will assist the Royal Ludroth in fighting the hunter. If they start to get annoying, take them out first!

Focus on Royal Ludroth's Mane, Head, and Tail

MH Rise - Break Royal Ludroth Mane

Most of Royal Ludroth's body is tough and can deflect attacks to its legs (especially when your weapon has yellow sharpness). In light of this, it is recommended that you focus your attacks on Royal Ludroth's Head, Mane, and Tail!

Breaking its mane, in particular, can weaken its Water Bomb attacks. This is extremely useful because it reduces Royal Ludroth's deadliness whenever it's on water.

The tail on the other hand can be severed for an extra carve! It is important to note that you should focus your attacks on its gray tip as the rest of its tail can deflect attacks from weapons with yellow sharpness.

Use Meat Bait

MH Rise - Use Meat BaitWhen Hunting Royal Ludroth

Meat Bait is extremely useful to have against Royal Ludroth. This particular item serves as a pseudo-damage trap when placed in water, with the Giganha inflicting damage to Royal Ludroth when in range and possibly making it flinch in the process.

Consider bringing a few with you. Alternatively, you can always check your Supply Box at the Base Camp for any free Meat Bait inside!

Bring Nullberries

MH Rise - Bring Nulberries When Hunting Royal Ludroth

Royal Ludroth's Water Bombs inflict Waterblight on impact. We recommend bringing a few Nullberries during the hunt to counteract the slower stamina recovery!

Royal Ludroth Master Rank Attack Patterns

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

Name Description
Leviathan Rush Royal Ludroth quickly charges at its target while keeping its head low.

Leviathan Rush

Leviathan Rush Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Royal Ludroth Leviathan Rush
Leviathan Rush: Like many Leviathans, Royal Ludroth will lower its head and quickly slither on the ground. The move itself is very fast, allowing the monster to close the gap between itself and its targets and damaging anything that gets in its way.

It only appears to travel straight in one direction when using this move, so evading to the side is recommended.

Royal Ludroth General Attack Patterns

Royal Ludroth uses the following attacks in Low and High Rank quests.

Name Description
Standing Wide Sweep Royal Ludroth stands then dives to attack while sweeping its tail.
Royal Ludroth Launcher Royal Ludroth sends hunters flying using its mane.
Water Bombs Royal Ludroth fires Water Bombs on its targets.
Side Rolls Royal Ludroth rolls around using its mane for offense rather than defense.
Tail Attacks Using its tail, Royal Ludroth can attack enemies behind it.
Body Slam Royal Ludroth uses the weight of its mane to crush its foes.

Standing Wide Sweep

Standing Wide Sweep Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Royal Ludroth Standing Wide Sweep
Standing Wide Sweep: Royal Ludroth will begin this attack by sliding at the ground to get enough momentum to stand on its hind legs. Afterward, it will dive headfirst while rolling and sweep its tail. This move has a wide range but is fairly predictable. Stay away from the general direction it's diving toward to evade this attack.

Royal Ludroth Launcher

Royal Ludroth Launcher Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Royal Ludroth Launcher
Royal Ludroth Launcher: Royal Ludroth sends hunters flying using its mane. This move can be telegraphed with the way it ducks its head sideward and then launches anything hit by the mane.

Water Bombs

Water Bomb Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak - Royal Ludroth Water Bomb
Water Bombs: This is a quick attack that also acts as its ranged attack. The single Water Bomb variation has additional travel after it's fired, so stay away from its trajectory.

These bombs inflict Waterblight on impact, which slows down stamina recovery.
MH Rise Sunbreak - Royal Ludroth Triple Water Bomb
Triple Water Bombs: Royal Ludroth fires three consecutive Water Bombs in different directions, with each leaving a pool of water that can damage you and inflict Waterblight on contact.

It also leaves itself fairly open if you're not in front of it, so you can take this opportunity to deal plenty of damage.
MH Rise Sunbreak - Royal Ludroth Charging Water Bombs
Charging Water Bombs: This variation has it charging at its target while spitting out Water Bombs. It can change direction twice after starting the move, so keep an eye out for who it's after.

Side Rolls

Side Roll Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak - Royal Ludroth Wide Range Side Rolls
Wide Range Side Rolls: Royal Ludroth rolls its entire body to the side and crushes anything caught in the middle of this attack. It's recommended to roll to its sides, like under the tail or in front of its face, as the attack can cover a wide distance.

It can sometimes do this attack twice in succession, especially when it's enraged.
MH Rise Sunbreak - Royal Ludroth Hip Check to Roll
Hip Check to Roll Combo: This attack starts with a hip check position but continues to a side roll. Like the regular side rolls, it's best to evade to the sides if you can't counter or block this attack.

Tail Attacks

Tail Attack Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak - Royal Ludroth Tail Attack
Tail Attack: Royal Ludroth can swing its tail around to knock away enemies behind it. It also covers a fairly large area, so try to move towards its mane during this attack.
MH Rise Sunbreak - Royal Ludroth Tail Sweep
Tail Sweep: Royal Ludroth will curl its body and then sweep its tail behind it. It will normally use this as a way of repositioning itself while using the tail to knock back enemies to its rear. Note that it will still perform even if the tail is cut, so try to sever it to reduce its range.

Body Slam

Body Slam Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak - Royal Ludroth Body Slam
Body Slam: Using the weight of its mane, Royal Ludroth will crush any foe beneath it. When enranged, it can do this attack twice in a row.
MH Rise Sunbreak - Royal Ludroth Leaping Body Slam
Leaping Body Slam: Royal Ludroth will sometimes appear to charge toward its enemies but proceed to jump at its opponents. This move can cover some distance, so keep an eye out for where it lands.
