Check Icon Kill the Smaller Izuchis First

Check Icon Open to Attacks After Tail Slams

Check Icon Knock Great Izuchi Down

Kill the Smaller Izuchis First

MH Rise Sunbreak - Kill the Smaller Izuchis First

Killing the smaller Izuchis that follow Great Izuchi around is highly recommended. These smaller Izuchis mimic Great Izuchi's attacks and can interrupt you while you focus on the larger threat.

However, note that these small Izuchis can respawn after a short while since the Great Izuchi occasionally lets out a summoning howl when it needs help.

Open to Attacks After Tail Slams

MH Rise Sunbreak - Open to Attacks After Tail Slams

Great Izuchi's Tail Slam attack causes its tail to get stuck in the ground, leaving it vulnerable to attacks. Use this opportunity to land your strongest attacks and deal as much damage as possible to Great Izuchi!

Knock Great Izuchi Down

MH Rise Sunbreak - Knock Great Izuchi Down

Dealing enough damage to Great Izuchi and breaking its body parts will cause it to get knocked down. Use this opportunity to deal as much damage as possible before it recovers.

Coordinated Attacks

Coordinated Attacks Attack Information

Coordinated Attacks: Great Izuchi can launch coordinated attacks together with its smaller Izuchi companions. These attacks can be any of Great Izuchi's grounded moves, so take care when all of the monsters prepare to attack.

These coordinated attacks can be difficult to avoid as the monsters can attack in a row or from different angles. We suggest using Wiredash to quickly dodge or performing a dive-evade when caught out of position to avoid getting hit.

Hanging Tail Slam: Great Izuchi leaps onto a nearby wall, hanging onto it using its scythe-like tail. After locking onto the hunter, it rapidly jumps off the wall to slam its tail on top of them, knocking them away and dealing heavy damage.

Wait for the moment when Great Izuchi jumps from the wall and evade perpendicular to the path of its tail slam to avoid getting hit.
