Normal
MH Rise Sunbreak - Anjanath Normal Mode
Enraged Mode
MH Rise Sunbreak - Anjanath Enraged Mode

Anjanath's enraged state alters its body, causing its wings and snout to fan out and increasing its deadliness across the board.

This state also alters Anjanath's behavior and specific moves. Read more below:

  • Anjanath unlocks the ability to produce flames in its throat and nostrils, allowing it to execute flame-based attacks.
  • Anjanath's maw attacks can inflict Fireblight due to the buildup of flames inside its throat.
  • Anjanath's attacks are generally faster and are less telegraphed.

Knock Anjanath Down

Leg KO
MH Rise - Hit Anjanath
Head KO
MH Rise - Anjanath Hitting Head to Knock It Out

Anjanath's large head and legs make it susceptible to knockdowns. Prioritize attacking and breaking its legs and head to keep it grounded and allow you to continue being on the offensive.

Attack the Snout, Head, and Wings When Enraged

MH Rise Sunbreak - Hit Anjanath Weakpoints When Enraged

When enraged, Anjanath's snout and wings fan out, and its throat organ comes to life, allowing it to emit flames.

While Anjanath is more dangerous in this state, it is also more vulnerable to attacks on its head, snout, and wings. Prioritize dealing damage to these body parts to maximize damage output when Anjanath is enraged.

Anjanath's Flame Breath Can Be Blocked

MH Rise - Blocking Anjanath Flame Breath
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.

Stay Mobile to Avoid Getting Hit
