The strength and ferocity of the Rajang are said to be on par with Elder Dragons. As the game describes, it is ultra-aggressive that few have a chance of surviving against.

Rajang Enraged Mode

Once the Rajang is enraged, its fur turns yellow giving it a menacing glow. When the Rajang is in an enraged state, it has heightened aggression and is more dangerous.

Rajang Rampage Mode

Unique to the Rajang, after entering enraged mode and threatened, even more, it will enter a rampage mode. Once in Rampage mode, its arms glow red and its attacks become more fierce. There are certain unique attacks that the Rajang can do while in Rampage mode.

Wide Attacks with Many Openings

The fighting pattern of the Rajang is mainly comprised of wide sweeps and attacks that leave it exposed, like its Lightning Beam as this attack leaves the monster exposed.

Rajang Attack Patterns

Lightning Beam

As explained earlier, the Rajang's Lightning Beam does not follow the hunter and only shoots in a singular direction, leaving the monster exposed to attacks.

Jumping Lightning Beam


Similar to the Rajang's Jumping Ultra Bellyflop, this attack allows the Rajang to jump up in the air and shoot a Lightning Beam downward.
