It appears that the Rathian Armor Set will be making a comeback as shown in one of their official previews. The armor set in the video is strikingly similar to the Monster Hunter World Rathian Armor Set.

Rathian Characteristics

Thunder and Dragon Weakness

The Rathian is weakest against Thunder and Dragon element attacks, weapons, and tools. It is ideal to aim for its head as a weak point but prioritizing removal of its poisonous tail is also an option.

Pink Rathian Variant

There is a possibility for the Pink Rathian to make a comeback in Monster Hunter Rise, which was first introduced in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne.

Rathian Attack Patterns



The Rathian has a unqiue way of utilizing its poisonous tail. It will do a somersault close to the player, assaulting the player with its tail in a circular whiplash. It is crucial for you to avoid this attack as it causes significant and lingering poison damage. Stock up on some antidotes and other poison cures if you wish to go toe-to-toe with the Queen of the Land!

Fire Projectile Attack

Flame Breath

Apart from it's poisonous tail and menacing claws, the Rathian can shoot a fire projectile from its mouth. In its regular state, it shoots only one but when angered it will shoot three in a row. While shooting, it is left vulnerable which gives ample time for you to attack it while its preoccupied in toasting the spot you once were.

    • Is it possible to view the armor and weapons we have equipped in the demo???

    • 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.?
