Tigrex Characteristics

Flagship Monster of MHP2

Tigrex Flagship

Tigrex is the flagship monster of Monster Hunter Portable 2 (MHP2). It appeared in a seemingly normal delivery quest only to be surprised by a tiger-like monster rushing to your face. It is a very popular monster so it has had many reappearances, most recently in Monster Hunter World.

Destructive Roar and Fast Leg Movement

Tigrex Roars

Tigrex is known for its quick rush attacks and destructive roars. Unlike other monsters, its roar has damage so try getting away before it shouts!

Tigrex Attack Patterns

Rush Attacks

Tigrex Rushing

Tigrex will rush to the hunter multiple times continuously. This rush attack is pretty hard to avoid if you see it late! It is pretty easy to telegraph though as Tigrex will charge before it executes the rush so move sideways when you see it!

Iterations in Monster Hunter World

In Monster Hunter World, Tigrex sometimes sneaks in attacks between rushes. It is possible that this gets carried over to Rise so take note!

Its Roar Has Damage!

Tigrex About to Roar

Tigrex's roar will damage you if you are near enough. Earplugs also do not work so stay away from when it is about to roar. It usually holds its head high with two front legs supporting its body when it is about to roar so be mindful of this!

    • 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.?
