Great Izuchi Characteristics

Attacks Together with Smaller Izuchi

Great Izuchi Tri Attack

Great Izuchi always fights together with two smaller Izuchi. The three will always attack together so balancing your attention between all of them could be a challenge.

It is possible that killing off the two smaller Izuchi will make the hunt easier but they could respawn infinitely so you may need to find a way to fight all three of them together.

Great Izuchi Attack Patterns

Name Description
Tri-Rush Attack Rush to the hunter while doing scratch attacks
Tail Slam Swing the tail vertically and slams it to the ground
Tail Sweep A tail sweep attack from side-to-side, 180°
Consecutive Tail Spin Three consecutive spinning tail attack
Water Spit Attack A long range water attack
Scratch Attack A normal stationary scratch attack

Tail Slam Attack

Great Izuchi Vertical Tail Attack

Great Izuchi attacks by slamming its tail vertically in a straight line. Take note that smaller Izuchis will also similarly swing their tail! Evade to the side (left or right) or counterattack with wirebug moves!

Spit Attack

Great Izuchi Spit Attack

The Great Izuchi has a spit attack that may cause elemental blights. Based on the trailer, this attack looks liquid so it may be water blight. Either way, be careful because blights are a pain to deal with especially if you do not have nullberries.

Tri-Rush Attack

Great Izuchi Tri Rush Attack

The Great Izuchi can launch a rush attack forward together with its Izuchi companions. Because their bodies are lined up side-by-side, it could be quite difficult to avoid. Try using Wire Dash to quickly evade!

Consecutive Tail Spin

Consecutive Tail Spin

Great Izuchi can execute a tail spin attack three times! Most hunters usually let their guard down after the first or second spin which leads to them receiving big damage. Whenever you see a spin attack, do not risk it - hold and wait if Great Izuchi will execute two more spin attacks. Sheathe your weapon or use wirebugs to evade quickly!

Tail Sweep Attack

Tail Sweep

This move is pretty quick so it can catch hunters sleeping. This is a staple move from this monster so try avoiding camping at his tail!

How to Beat Great Izuchi

Kill the Smaller Izuchis First

Kill off Smaller Izuchis

We suggest killing off the two smaller Izuchis before focusing on the bigger Great Izuchi. These two will always mimic their big brother so removing them from the equation can make your hunt easier. Gunners can make quick work of these small monsters while Blademasters can fill up their gauges before fighting the bigger Great Izuchi.

They will respawn after some time but the timer (around 5 minutes) is amply long for you to defeat Great Izuchi.

Open to Attacks After The Tail Slam

Tail Slam Stuck

The tail of this monster will get stuck to the ground after a tail slam so it will be open for attacks! Use this opportunity to dish out powerful moves - just make sure you avoid that tail slam first!

Will Go Down If It Receives a Certain Amount of Damage

Izuchi Will Go Down

The Great Izuchi will go down after receiving a certain amount of damage much like its old-world counterpart, the Great Jaggi. It will ragdoll away from the hunter so use wirebugs to dash towards it and save time then dish out your most powerful moves!

    • 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.?
