Official Description
This creature usually keeps to itself deep in the mountains, but recently it has been approaching human habitation and attacking hunters, perhaps because of the Rampage. It's adept at using mud to attack, and even defends itself by sticking it on its body. From its tail oozes a strange golden fluid, which it uses to dissolve the ground beneath its prey, arresting them in a mire so that it can drag them under.

With Almudron's black and red color scheme, plus the golden goo on its tail, the armor set from the Switch Axe video was most likely its armor set! The female version has cat ears and a tail as well, which fits the catfish-like features of Almudron.

On February 23, a tweet from the main Monster Hunter account revealed that it is indeed Almudron's armor set, and added the Palamute and Palico armor, too!

Almudron Characteristics

Mud Attacks

Almudron is a Leviathan that resembles a catfish, using mud for its attacks. This is interesting given that catfish like burrowing in mud! There is also a yokai that is basically a giant catfish that lives underground, Namazu.

Golden Fluid From Tail

It also has a golden fluid oozing from its tail, which according to the description, acts like a quicksand underneath the hunter! Look out for this attack as it will probably leave you vulnerable to its other attacks.

Almudron Attack Patterns

Midair Attack

Almudron can launch itself into the air and unleash a multitude of mud balls onto the battlefield, making it tricky to navigate.

Mud Attacks from Afar

Almudron can also send mud from afar, so watch out for its mud waves as this will probably make you Muddy, much like Jyuratodus's mud attacks do!

Mud Terrain

Not all the mud that Almudron creates will make your life harder. It also creates harder mud terrain that you jump on and perform midair attacks with!

Tail Attack

Almudron likes to use its long tail to attack you. Its tail attacks have huge, sweeping wind-up motions, so it will be easy to tell when an attack is coming. Guard up or evade accordingly!
