Appeared in the Hammer Video

The Anjanath was confirmed in Monster Hunter Rise when shown as the monster hunted in the Hammer weapon introduction video. Its first appearance was in Monster Hunter World where it was dubbed a devil in the earlier levels due to its notorious skillset.

Anjanath Characteristics

Water Element Weakness

The Anjanath is weakest against weapons, attacks, and tools that have the Water Element. It is also resistant to Fire element weapons, attacks, and tools, so avoid using the Fire element when facing up against an Anjanath.

Legs are Weak Points

The legs of the Anjanath are the easiest to hit out of all its body parts. It also takes the least amount of damage of all of its body parts. Once broken, however, it becomes a weak point that can be advantageous due to the bonus damage that weak points allow.

Fulgur Anjanath Variant

In Iceborne, a variant of the Anjanath was seen, also known as the Fulgur Anjanath. It uses Thunder element attacks with heightened damage once in enraged mode. Dissimilar from the original, this monster's coat boasts hues of blue which matches the landscape it resides in.

Anjanath Attack Patterns

Enraged Mode

The Anjanath has a unique power-up where it deals more damage and becomes more ferocious once it enters enraged mode. Its nostrils flare upward, exposing a tendon. The throat of this beast glows red while small wings sprout from its back.

Vulnerable Head, Throat, and Wings

Once in Enraged Mode, the Anjanath's throat organ comes to life and shoots flame. From the head to the throat, the Anjanath becomes open to attacks since its attack pattern is easy to read. Try to break its head to open up a weak point which can help stagger the monster. Its small fleshy wings are viable to punish if you happen to be using ranged weapons.

Flame Breath


The Anjanath shoots fiery breaths from its throat organ always in a forward fashion. You can easily dodge this flame breath by rolling away either to the left or right.

Jaw Crush

Once you get too close to the Anjanath, it snaps its jaw at you and tries to catch you. When caught, it will start crushing you with its jaw and deal a considerable amount of damage.

    • 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.?
