Tobi-Kadachi Basic Information

Tobi-Kadachi Returning Monster.png
Type Fanged Wyvern Previous Games MHW, MHWI
Threat Level 5/10 Rampage Type
Major Weakness Water Other Weakness(es) Fire
Blight / Elemental Damage Thunder Abnormal Status None
A fanged wyvern that flies among the treetops. Its penchant to brush against the ground and the trees as it moves around builds up static electricity within its fur. This action allows it to reach a charged state—identified by its glowing fur—in which its head and tail attacks are said to be particularly lethal.

Hunting Tips

・Always keep the Tobi-Kadachi in your sights to avoid being ambused from behind. The key to defeating this monster is to immobilize it and prevent it from reaching a charged state. If you can make use of endemic life to afflict it with waterblight, it'll no longer be able to charge itself up.

Claw Swipe

Possible Follow-Up Attacks
Sommersault Tail Slam Back Tail Swipe

Scale Shot

Monster Hunter Rise (Tobi-Kadachi) - Scale Shot.gif

Tobi-Kadachi flings two of its tail's scales towards its target. This attack can instantly stun you if Tobi-Kadachi is in its Charged State, leaving you open to more devasatating attacks. Dodge or block this attack at all costs!

How to Beat Tobi-Kadachi

Tobi-Kadachi's Charged State

Monster Hunter Rise (Tobi-Kadachi) - Charged State.gif

Tobi-Kadachi builds up electricity in its scales which eventually leads into a fully Charged State. Below are the notable changes to Tobi-Kadachi during this state:

  • Tobi-Kadachi's Lunge, Tail, Gliding, and Scale Shot attacks inflict Thunderblight during its Charged State, making you more vulnerable to stuns
  • Tobi-Kadachi's attacks deal more damage and are generally faster during this state.

Don't Let Tobi-Kadachi Leave Your Sight

Monster Hunter Rise (Tobi-Kadachi) - Focus Camera.gif

Tobi-Kadachi's strongest weapon is its speed. Consider using the Monster Hunter Rise's Target Camera to quickly regain vision of Tobi-Kadachi whenever it attempts to flank you!

Bring Nulberries

Monster Hunter Rise (Barioth) - Bring Nulberries.png

Tobi-Kadachi can inflict Thunderblight during its Charged State. You can negate this deadly status with a Nulberry — Always make sure you bring a full stack into the hunt!

Focus on the Head, Back, and Tail

Monster Hunter Rise (Tobi-Kadachi) - Tobi-Kadachi Part Break.gif

Breaking these three parts will significantly reduce the potency and effectiveness of its Charged State, making the fight a lot easier!

Anticipate Its Gliding Attacks

Tobi-Kadachi's Gliding Attacks may seem impossible to avoid at first, but they are actually very easy dodge!

The key to avoiding these attacks lies in Tobi-Kadachi's movements in the air — Read on to know more:

How to Dodge Gliding Tail Slam
Monster Hunter Rise (Tobi-Kadachi) - How to Dodge Gliding Tail Slam.gif

Wait for Tobi-Kadachi to hover for a split second as this indicates that it has locked on to your position.
Once it curls up, dodge sideways or to the front to avoid the follow-up Tail Slam.
How to Dodge Descending Tail Sweep
Monster Hunter Rise (Tobi-Kadachi) - How to Dodge Descending Tail Sweep.gif
Keep moving with eyes locked towards Tobi's temporary flight. The key here is to identify its chosen landing spot, which is indicated by a split-second hover directly above it.
The sweep itself has a fairly wide radius so make sure you are two-to-three steps away from its landing zone to easily dodge out of the attack.

Knock It Off Trees and Rocks!

Monster Hunter Rise (Tobi-Kadachi) - Tree and Rock Climb.gif

Tobi-Kadachi can hang on trees and wait for an opportunity to attack via its somersault attack. This is an extremely vulnerable state and it can be knocked to the ground via heavy damage or flash pods.

Water Element is Recommended
