Khezu Characteristics

Inhabits Cold Regions

Inhabits Cold Regions

The Khezu is known to live in Icy regions. Since a Khezu will be appearing in MH Rise, expect the game to have an icy region that houses these nasty monsters. And make sure to have some hot drinks ready!

Fire Attribute and Its Feet are Its Weakness

Fire is Khezu's weakness so make sure to bring Fire Elemental weapons if your weapon is focused on dealing elemental damage. The Khezu can also latch to its surroundings so weakening its foot can cause it to fall.

Can Unleash Lightning Attacks

Khezu is a slow monster but it's capable of unleashing strong lightning attacks. Its attack range is massive so it's best to wear gear with high lightning resistance to survive its attacks.

Has Degenerated Eyes

This might seem like mediocre info but is in fact, a very important one. With the Khezu lacking sight, it is immune to flash pods! It will also not trigger a combat mode which makes superman diving impossible.

Has An Eerie and Intense Roar

Eerie and Intense Roar

Khezu's spooky and eerie roar is back in Monster Hunter Rise. This one is no joke though as hunters take longer to recover from it so that leaves hunters open for attacks.

Popular Background Music (BGM)

This monster has one of the most popular background music: having none at all. This has been a meme for a long time now, specifically about how 'Khezu has the best BGM'.

Khezu Attack Patterns

Name Description
Neck Swing Attack Elongated neck attack that has a long range
Electric Breath Attack Electric attack from the mouth that rushes on the ground
Causes paralysis to hunters
Discharge Attack An area-of-effect charged electric attack
Ceiling Latch Khezu will jump up and latch on the ceiling
Body Slam Attack Jumps up and slams its whole body to the ground

Neck Swing Attack

Neck Swing Attack

The Khezu can unleash a long-ranged swing attack. Ranged users need to be careful with this attack as its damage is high and the range can be surprising.

Electric Breath

Electric Breath Attack

The Khezu uses a slow electric breath in a 180-degree arc. It's extremely slow so it'll be fairly easy to dodge but make sure to bring lightning-resistant gear to be safe.

Electric Discharge

Discharge Attack

The Khezu can cover itself in lightning which will shock all enemies close to the Khezu. This is a nightmare for melee users but is a great vulnerability against ranged weapons.

Latch to the Ceiling

The Khezu can latch on the Ceiling to perform an evasive maneuver. It then shoots electric balls, it is easy to dodge but is a hassle since the Khezu will be out of reach. Aim to weaken its leg to make it fall when using this move!

Body Slam Attack

Body Slam

Khezu will spread its arms, jump up and slam its whole body to the ground with full force! This one is usually followed up by a huge opening but sometimes Khezu will chain this attack with an electric discharge attack so observe and act accordingly!

    • 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.?
