|The biggest representative of the Monster Hunter series. It descends on invaders from the sky, attacking with poison claws. Be especially careful of its fiery breath!|
|Shrine Ruins||Coming Soon!|
A new move can bee seen done by the the Rathalos where he shoots a concentrated fire shot directly under your feet, setting you on fire and dealing damage.
The Rathalos was confirmed when it was revealed in the in the The Game Awards 2020 Trailer for Monster Hunter Rise. It can be seen behind new monsters, lagging behind in the so called
|Rathalos Palamute Armor|
In one of the official previews, a Palamute can be seen sporting what might be Rathalos Armor, but from the design it seems like it is Rathalos armor.
The Rathalos is weakest against Dragon and Thunder elemnt attacks, weapons, and tools. It also has a weak spot on the head so prioritize damaging this for more damage!
There is a high possibility for the Azure Ratahalos and Silver Rathalos to come back in Monster Hunter Rise, which were first introduced in Monster Hunter World. The Rathalos is very prominent in the Monster Hunter franchise so its return is to be expected.
The Rathalos's signature move. Be wary when it roars for it is almost always accompanied by a sweeping breath of flame. The pattern of the Rathalos's fire breath is erratic but not impossible to read, pay close attention and you will know when to avoid it.
The Rathalos boasts fearsome claws coated with poison. Being struck, swiped, or picked up by these can cause lingering poison damage. Consuming an antidote and carrying other poison cures is vital when facing this wyvern.
The Rathalos makes uses of its massive wings by staying in the air, bellowing a deafening roar, and covering you with flames. If you are using a melee weapon, its a one-sided battle. That's why flashpods are an essential tool for bringing this beast down. Keep in mind that if its wings are fully intact, it can use them to hide from flash pods. Go for the wings!
As with every other monster, using too much stun related tools makes the Rathalos build an immunity against it. Use them sparingly and strategically.

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.?
