The alpha Izuchi of its pack, identified by its larger build, upended white fur and scythe-like tail. A Great Izuchi forms a herd of many smaller Izuchi and selects two from the group to accompany it on territory patrols. Once it spots prey or senses danger, the Great Izuchi issues commands to their fellow Izuchi, and coordinates their movements. Take care that you don't get overwhelmed.

Hunting Tips
・Their razor-sharp tail attacks in combination with their synchronicity make them a force to be reckoned with. Take out their leader to send the herd into disarray and pick them off easily.

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

Monster Hunter Rise (Great Izuchi) - 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

Monster Hunter Rise (Great Izuchi) - 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

Monster Hunter Rise (Great Izuchi) - 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

Monster Hunter Rise (Great Izuchi) - Consecutive Tail Spin

Great Izuchi can execute a tailspin 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!

Long Sword stops this attack

Monster Hunter Rise (Great Izuchi) - Serene Pose.gif

Using a Long Sword and doing the Silkbind Attack Serene Pose can stop the Great Izuchi from swinging!

Tail Sweep Attack

Monster Hunter Rise (Great Izuchi) - 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

Monster Hunter Rise (Great Izuchi) - 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

Monster Hunter Rise (Great Izuchi) - 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!

Dodge left or right to avoid tail slams

Dodging left or right to avoid tail slams is the more ideal strategy as this gives you ample time to reposition for a counterattack.

Will Topple Over with Enough Damage

Monster Hunter Rise (Great Izuchi) - 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!

    • Hello I was wondering I was looking at the updates for the future and I have been looking for anything on the topic but to no avail I was wondering if there will be any new monsters in the possible future it would be cool to see more monsters from other monster hunter games like from freedom unite or world or even iceborn I'm just curious I mean I almost have done everything so far and I love this game so much I haven't stopped playing it on my switch if it's possible I would love to know.
