|This belligerent monster will attack anything without hesitation. The membrane along its tail fans out when it is provoked—a behavior theorized to be either an act of intimidation or thermoregulation, as it has been known to do so when it breathes fire.|

Anjanath spews fire from its mouth and nostrils when Enraged! Here are the possible attack patterns:
Anjanath clears its nostrils by ejecting fiery beams towards its target.
Anjanath unleashes a massive beam of flame from its jaw, dealing a lot of damage to anyone caught in the attack.
Anjanath postures up before slamming its head towards one of its sides. This particular attack has a fairly wide range, so always be ready to dodge or block!
Anjanath flaps its wings and rushes towards its target in a fit of rage. This attack turns its entire body into one big hitbox — Stay clear from its path or block at all costs!
Anjanath uses its powerful legs to jump towards its target, causing massive damage and knocking anyone down.
Anjanath uses its massive jaw to bite anyone in front of it. Stay on your toes and pay attention to its head at all times to dodge accordingly!
This particular attack has three possible patterns:
Anjanath uses its massive jaw to bite anyone in front of it.
|Triple Chomp Combo||
Does three quick bites towards its target. This attack can knock anyone down it hits.
Anjanath snaps its jaw at you in an attempt to grab you. When caught, it will start crushing you and deal two ticks of damage.
Anjanath uses its massive tail to strike at anyone who lingers behind it for too long.
This particular attack has two possible patterns:
Anjanath swipes its massive tail in a 180° rotation, dealing damage and knocking down anyone caught in the attack.
|Double Tail Slap||
Anjanath diagonally slaps the ground behind it two times, launching anyone it connects to.
Anjanath can use one of its legs to kick anyone positioned near them for too long. This attack deals minor damage and can potentially trip anyone it connects to.
Anjanath flings its body sidewards in an attempt to launch anyone who stays at its flank for too long.
Anjanath plugs its massive jaw to the ground, unearthing a large rock before hurling it towards its target. Always be mindful of this attack whenever there is a good distance between you and Anjanath.
Anjanath's Enrage Mode alters its body, increasing its deadliness across the board.
Here is a list of Anjanath's notable changes during this particular phase:
|Legs KO||Head KO|
Anjanath's weakness is susceptibility to knock downs. Attack the legs and head as much as possible to keep it in place — A downed Anjanath is an easy Anjanath.
Once in Enrage 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 or manage to knock it down.
Shield users rejoice! Anjanath's Flame Breath can be blocked without the Guard Up skill. Take advantage of this opening and unleash your heavy-hitting counterattacks as much as possible.
Anjanath may be big but it can be surprisingly fast especially when enraged. Be careful when attacking the legs as its charge attack will knock near by hunters quite a distance.
