|Fire-breathing female wyverns, also known as "Queens of the Land." With powerful legs and poison-secreting tails, they hunt mainly on the ground. Sometimes seen preying as a couple, Rathian and Rathalos cooperate well.|
Bold are the recommended Weapon Type and Elemental Damage.
Higher numbers indicate higher potential damage to the monster.
The strong venom in her tail, along with the wide reach of her sweeping attacks, makes maneuvering around the Rathian a dangerous feat. Cutting off her tail can give you quite a bit more breathing room.
Status Effect Vulnerabilities
The more stars, the more advantageous it will be for the player.

◯ = Vulnerable; ✕ = Fully Resistant; ▲ = Situational
Red = Attack Increase, White = Movement Boost, Orange = Anti-knockback When Attacking
Long Attack Opening After Somersault and Any Fire Breath Attacks
Whack the Head!
Sever the Tail!
Attack the Feet to Take It Down
Safest Area is the Back of the Feet Near the Tail
Carry a Thunder or Dragon Element Weapon
Rathian will take time to refocus after every somersault and fire breath attack. Use this opportunity to hit it hard!
Rathian's weakness is found in the head but it also holds the most danger! Only try to hit its head when there is a safe opening.
Rathian's poisonous tail is the reason why its Somersault attack is incredibly deadly. Severing the tail with cutting weapons such as the Long Sword, Charge Blade, and Dual Blades can make the hunt a lot easier!
When Rathian falls, it will be open for attacks for quite a while. To do this, hit its feet multiple times until it trips!
It is possible to play safely against a Rathian when you attack it near its tail. You will be able to see its dangerous somersault attack and tailspin attacks while at the same time being safe from fire breath attacks!
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 the removal of its poisonous tail is also an option.
|Straight Fire Breath Attack||A single fire breath attack in a straight line|
|Fire Breath Attack||A three-consecutive fire breath attack in a conical direction|
|Somersault||Vertical tail spin attack and induces poison when hit|
|Tail Spin||Two consecutive horizontal tail spin attack, 180° sweep at a time|
|Rush Attacks||Three consecutive rush attacks with a huge hitbox|
|Glide Attack||Flies low while dashing towards the hunter|
|Bite Attack||A typical bite attack that can flinch hunters|
The Rathian spits out a breathe of flame directly in front of it. The fire lingers on the spot it drops to, so make sure to avoid getting hit by it. Simply dodging to the left or right can save you the trouble of being burned.
Apart from its 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 it is preoccupied with toasting the spot you once were.
The Rathian has a unique way of utilizing its poisonous tail. It will somersault close to the player, assaulting the player with its tail in a circular whiplash. You must avoid this attack as it causes significant and lingering poison damage. Stock up on some antidotes or herbal medicines if you wish to go toe-to-toe with the Queen of the Land!
The Rathian clears the area behind it with its tail doing a 180° sweep, pausing for a moment before doing the second one. This attack is easily avoidable and opens the Rathian to be attacked since the Rathian uses large motions, making it very predictable. Just leave the range of the sweeps and punish this monster.
These consecutive rush attacks have a deceptively large hitbox so try evading as much as possible. It is advisable to sheathe your weapon and evade while running instead of counterattacking because Rathian usually chains this to another attack!
The Rathian rises to the air and glides towards its target, attempting to knock it off its feet. Similar to the Tail Spin, this attack has the Rathian use its entire body. Attacking in a large motion, dodging this attack is as easy as Wirebug dashing left or right.
The Rathalos's bite attack is similar to the bite attack of the other monsters as it knocks you off your feet when hit. The bite itself isn't devastating but being knocked off your feet leaves you defnseless. After the bite, the Rathian can rush you or hurl fire balls at you. Make sure to recover quickly with your Wirebug!

Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
