The Kulu-Ya-Ku was confirmed in Monster Hunter Rise when shown as the monster hunted in the Sword and Shield weapon introduction video. Its first appearance was in Monster Hunter World where it garnered a following after the Kulu-Ya-Ku layered armor was released, gaining popularity.

Kulu-Ya-Ku Characteristics

Egg Lover

Apart from the official description, the Kulu-Ya-Ku's love for eggs was obvious in Snatch the Snatcher, an Optional Quest in Monster Hunter World. In this task, you were sent to capture a Kulu-Ya-Ku out of curiosity for its affinity for using tools.

Docile Nature

The Kulu-Ya-Ku is a docile creature and will not choose to attack a hunter unless provoked. If seen, it usually prowls about and generally ignores the hunter.

Water Element Weakness

The Kulu-Ya-Ku is weakest against attacks, weapons, and tools with a Water element. Though the Kulu-Ya-Ku is not really a tough opponent to face off against.

Large Kulu-Ya-Ku

In the FF14 collaboration quest of Monster Hunter World, we encounter a unique Kulu-Ya-Ku which was comparatively larger compared to a regular Kulu-Ya-Ku.

Kulu-Ya-Ku Attack Patterns

Weaponized Rocks

The Kulu-Ya-Ku is quoted to be exceptionally rare due to its affinity for using its nimble forearms to pick up stones and eggs. Once threathened, the Kulu-Ya-Ku uses rocks as weapons and can block direct upfront melee weapon attacks with it. The The Kulu-Ya-Ku can also choose to toss this rock at the hunter for a mid-ranged attack or jump with the rock for a long-ranged attack. You can force a Kulu-Ya-Ku to drop its weaponized rock by attacking it with a slinger as it prepares to jump.

Weaponized Jars


As seen in the Monster Hunter Rise Sword and Shield trailer, the Kulu-Ya-Ku now adds weaponized jars in its arsenal. Thus making it a more formidable opponent which can not only damage the hunter but the jar economy as well.

Be Wary of Jump Attacks

Aside from weaponizing rocks and stealing eggs, perhaps the Kulu-Ya-Ku's best move is its jump attacks. With its jump attacks, it can close the distance between you two and catch you by surprise. However, this jump attack also exposes the Kulu-Ya-Ku as it staggers a bit before recovering after a jump which you can use to your advantage.

    • 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.?
