Appeared in the Rampage Trailer

Basarios was finally announced during the Nintendo Direct on February 17, on the Rampage Trailer! Its appearance was only speculated before, because the Hunting Horn used in the weapon showcase video was similar to the Basarios Hunting Horns in previous games.

Basarios Armor Set Preview

The rocky texture on the armor and the Hunting Horn undoubtedly resembles Basarios! If you look closely at the Hunting Horn video, you will also see that it has a fire effect, further cementing this armor set as Basarios's.

Basarios Characteristics

Rock-like Body Turns Bright Red

Though it looks a little different from previous games, Basarios maintains the same rock-like appearance. In Monster Hunter Rise, it seems that its body glows a bright red with heat, compared to when its body was covered with moss in previous games.

Because of this change, look out for variations in its moveset when the game finally launches!

Disguised as a Rock

It often disguises itself as a rock while its body is buried underground. So if you see a weirdly-placed rock in the middle of nowhere, it's most likely Basarios hiding in plain sight.

Juvenile Form of Gravios

In previous games, Basarios is the juvenile form of Gravios and they always appear in the same games, so it's very likely that Gravios will also appear in Monster Hunter Rise!

Basarios Attack Patterns

Underground Attack

Like Diablos, Basarios can bury itself underground and come up underneath the hunter. But unlike Diablos, Basarios damages you through the trail it leaves behind!

Fire Breath

Basarios can unleash a beam of fire straight ahead. If you can avoid this, you can capitalize on doing damage to it since it stays still for this attack.

Basarios can spit a fireball from far away, so be careful and keep an eye out for it!

Gas Cloud

In previous games, Basarios can also release either a poisonous gas cloud around it, or a sleep gas cloud. Just to be safe, bring both Antidotes and Energy Drinks if you're fighting against it!

Rolling Attack

Basarios has an attack where it pretends to rush you, but instead it suddenly drops down and rolls onto you with its entire body. Hunters with slower weapons like the Great Sword should be wary of this fake out.

Rush Attack

The Rush Attack is easier to avoid than the Rolling Attack, just because it rushes towards the hunter with a narrower range. You can simply evade to the side to avoid this attack.
