Known as the "Tyrant of the Desert." The Diablos is extremely territorial and will use its massive horns to charge at invaders. Diablos have the ability to borrow underground and use this ability to strike from below, however, their sensitive ears make them susceptible to Sonic Bombs. Despite their predatory appearance, they are herbivorous and mostly feed on cactus.

Break its Horns

MH Rise - Breaking Diablos
An incredibly dangerous task but one that is worth the risk, breaking Diablos' horns greatly reduces the range of its Charge Attacks. It is important to note that Diablos' Horns are so tough that they can deflect most weapons below Blue Sharpness.

Hammers and Gunlances can bypass the toughness because of their charged swings and shelling damage respectively. Alternatively, consider using Mind's Eye against Diablos so you can strike its horns without fear of bouncing off of them.

Use Environmental Traps

MH Rise - Make Diablos Charge at Pillars
Savy hunters will position themselves between a charging Diablos and a wall or pillar so that Diablos' horns get stuck. Similar to Tigrex, this will create a huge damage window for hunters to unleash they most powerful attacks.

Use Quicksand in the Sandy Plains

MH Rise - Using Quicksand against Diablos
When destroyed, the pillar will also uncover a quicksand that will trap any monster like a normal Pitfall Trap or Shock Trap would.

Sonic Bombs Can Disable Diablos

MH Rise - Interrupting Diablos
Hunters can use Sonic Bombs to force Diablos out of the ground! You can easily determine which burrowed attack Diablos will perform by its movement underground.

If Diablos is burrowing towards a target, it is performing a Burrowed Ambush — This particular attack can be interrupted!

Proper timing and placement of the Sonic Bomb (toss it near the breaking earth) results in Diablos prematurely springing out of the ground with its upper body exposed for a few seconds .

Keep to its Flank

MH Rise - Attack Diablos
Diablos' head is not only dangerous but also fairly hard to hit for melee weapons due to Diablos' general height. Keeping to its flank and attacking its legs and chest is a safer strategy that can also result in knockdowns.

Diablos General Attack Patterns

Diablos uses the following attacks in Low and High Rank quests.

Name Description
Charging Attacks Diablos charges at the hunter, horns first. This attack has several variations.
Double Gore Diablos swings its horns from side to side.
Quick Bite Diablos goes in for a quick chomp.
Burrowed Attacks Diablos burrows underground and ambushes the hunter. This attack has several variations.
Tail Attacks Diablos uses its tail to assault the hunter. This attack has several variations.
Hip Check Diablos uses its hips to charge sideways.

Charging Attacks

One of Diablos' signature attacks. Diablos will lower its horns, lock on a target and run full speed at it dealing massive damage to any hunter's hit. Unprepared hunter's can be easily KO'd if they are caught off guard.

Charging Attack Variations
MH Rise - Diablos
Charging Gore: Diablos assumes a low stance while locking on to its target. After a brief moment of calm, Diablos charges towards the in an attempt to impale the target with its massive horns.

Dodging this attack is fairly easy with as long as you have a distance amount of distance from Diablos prior to the charge. Walk towards one side as its locking on to you. Once it has completely locked towards your location, hit the gas just before the charge and sprint towards the same direction you've been walking towards!
MH Rise - Diablos
Menacing Charge: Diablos picks a target as it paces towards it's destination. Once the target is locked, Diablos springs into action by performing a sudden charge attack with its horns.

The key to dodging this attack is to run in a straight line either to the left or right as it positions for the charge. This makes it easier to determine Diablos' charge path.
MH Rise - Diablos
Quick Dash: This is the fastest variation out of the three so always keep an eye out for this attack! Diablos usually does this attack whenever a hunter is too close or after it sprints towards a target.

This attack is telegraphed by a faster version Charging Gore's low stance. Always be prepared to dodge or block whenever Diablos lowers its head.

Double Gore

Double Gore Attack Information
MH Rise - Diablos
Double Gore: Diablos preps his massive horns for two frontal head swings starting from one side to another. This attack covers a massive area in front of Diablos so be prepared to block both attacks or dodge out of the way!

Quick Bite

Quick Bite Attack Information
MH Rise - Diablos
Quick Bite: Diablos performs a quick bite towards hunters in front of it. This attack deals minor damage but can potentially knock you back, leaving you open for deadlier attacks.

Burrowed Attacks

Diablos' second signature attack. Diablos burrows underground and prepares to ambush the target from the earth.

Burrowed Attack Variations
MH Rise - Diablos
Burrowed Assault: Diablos picks a target as it burrows underground. Once it's completely burrowed, it will travel towards underneath the target and spring back to the surface. This launches the target up in the air and deal an incredibly high amount of damage so sheathe your weapon as soon it starts burrowing if you cannot block the attack!
MH Rise - Diablos
Furious Ambush: Diablos burrows undeground and travels away for short distance. After choosing its target, it launches itself up in the air towards the target.

This is a very dangerous attack that can easily KO hunters because Diablos' entire body turns into a hitbox during the attack. Don't hesitate to perform a Leap of Faith when caught in a terrible position!

Tail Attacks

Diablos can use its massive tail to inflict high damage towards unsuspecting hunters.

Tail Attack Variations
MH Rise - Diablos
Tail Spin: Diablos spins in place two times, flinging its massive tail towards anyone positioned around it. Each spin covers 180 degrees.
MH Rise - Diablos
Tail Slam: Diablos quickly slams its tail towards anyone who stays directly behind it for too long! Getting hit with this attack knocks you down and leaves you open to devastating follow-up attacks.
MH Rise - Diablos
Diagonal Tail Whips: Diablos whips its tail two times in a diagonal fashion, dealing high damage and launching anyone caught in the attacks.
MH Rise - Diablos
Boulder Fling: Diablos spins around and slaps its tail at the earth in front of it. This results in a boulder flying towards the target.

Hip Check

Hip Check Attack Information
MH Rise - Diablos
Hip Check: Diablos rams its hips sideways similar to other Wyverns like Barioth, dealing massive damage and knocking anyone down in its path. Its best to dodge towards Diablos' tail when it begins to posture for a Hip Check.
