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.

Beware the Enraged Mode

Enraged Mode

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:

  • Anjanath unlocks the ability to produce flames in its throat and nostrils, allowing it to execute Flame Attacks.
  • Anjanath's jaw attacks can inflict Fireblight due to the build-up of flames inside its throat.
  • Anjanath's attacks are generally faster and are less telegraphed.

Knock It Down!

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.

Attack the Throat, Head, and Wings When Enraged

MH Rise - Hitting Anjanath Weak Points When Enraged

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.

Shielded Weapons: Block the Flame Breath!

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

MH Rise - Stay Mobile to Avoid Getting Hit

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 nearby hunters quite a distance.
