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.

How to Beat Diablos

Check Icon Stay Close to Diablos' Rear

Check Icon Use Environmental Traps

Check Icon Sonic Bombs Can Disable Diablos

Break Diablos' Horns

MH Rise - Breaking Diablos
While staying near Diablos' head is risky, breaking its horns makes the fight easier as it reduces the range of its Charge Attacks. However, it is important to note that Diablos' horns are tough enough to deflect most weapons below blue sharpness.

When aiming to break Diablos' horns, consider using Hammers and Gunlances, as their charged swings and shelling damage can bypass the horns' durable nature. Alternatively, consider using Mind's Eye against Diablos so you can strike its horns without fear of bouncing attacks off of them.

Stay Close to Diablos' Rear

MH Rise - Attack Diablos
Some melee weapons may have a difficult time hitting Diablos' head due to the monster's tall height. Staying close to Diablos' rear and focusing attacks on its legs and chest is a safer strategy that can still result in knockdowns, allowing you to target the head afterwards.

Use Environmental Traps

MH Rise - Make Diablos Charge at Pillars

Hunters can use walls and pillars in the environment to their advantage by baiting Diablos into charging at them, causing the monster to get stuck. Using environmental traps such as these can create large openings that hunters can use to deal massive damage to Diablos.

Use Quicksand in the Sandy Plains

MH Rise - Using Quicksand against Diablos
When destroyed, the pillars in the Sandy Plains uncover quicksand pits. These quicksand pits act like Pitfall Traps, making them great environmental traps to take advantage of when Diablos performs its charging attacks.

Sonic Bombs Can Disable Diablos

MH Rise - Interrupting Diablos
Hunters can use Sonic Bombs to force Diablos out of the ground. In particular, if Diablos is burrowing towards a target, throwing a Sonic Bomb towards the crumbling earth will cause it to end its attack prematurely. Doing this leaves it vulnerable for a few seconds, giving hunters a window of opportunity to easily deal damage to the monster.

Diablos Master Rank Attack Patterns

In addition to its attacks in Low and High Rank quests, Diablos uses the following attacks in Master Rank.

Name Description
Delayed Horn Slam Diablos rears its head far back before slamming its horns down on the hunter.
Diving Horn Slam
DANGER
Diablos rears backward before quickly diving forward to slam its horns on top of the hunter.
Charging Gore Feint
DANGER
Diablos performs a Charging Gore before stopping short to suddenly slam its horns on top of the hunter.

Delayed Horn Slam

Delayed Horn Slam Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Diablos Delayed Horn Slam
Delayed Horn Slam: Diablos rears its head far back before slamming its horns down on the hunter, dealing heavy damage on contact.

Diablos takes a significant amount of time to wind this move up, so prepare to guard, parry, or move out of the way when this attack begins to avoid getting hit.

Diving Horn Slam

Diving Horn Slam Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Diablos Diving Horn Slam
Diving Horn Slam: Diablos rears backward before quickly diving forward to slam its horns on top of the hunter, dealing massive damage.

This move covers a surprising amount of distance and also tracks the hunter, so prepare to dodge at the last moment or dive-evade to avoid getting hit.

Charging Gore Feint

Charging Gore Feint Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Diablos Charging Gore Feint
Charging Gore Feint: Diablos performs a Charging Gore before stopping short in its tracks to suddenly slam its horns on top of the hunter, dealing massive damage on hit.

The follow-up horn slam covers a surprising amount of distance and also tracks the hunter, so don't hesitate to perform a dive-evade to avoid getting hit by this attack when it occurs.

Diablos General Attack Patterns

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

Name Description
Double Gore Diablos swings its horns from side to side.
Quick Bite Diablos performs a quick bite towards hunters in front of it.
Hip Check Diablos uses its hips to tackle sideways.
Tail Attacks Diablos uses its tail to assault the hunter. This attack has several variations.
Charging Attacks
DANGER
Diablos charges at the hunter, horns first. This attack has several variations.
Burrowing Attacks
DANGER
Diablos burrows underground to ambush the hunter. This attack has several variations.

Double Gore

Double Gore Attack Information
MH Rise - Diablos
Double Gore: Diablos rears back before performing two frontal horn swings, sweeping its head from one side to another. This attack covers a massive area in front of Diablos so prepare to dodge or block twice if caught in its path.

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.

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.

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.

Charging Attacks

One of Diablos' signature sets of moves is its Charging Attacks. Diablos lowers its horns before locking on a target and running towards them at full speed, dealing massive damage on contact.

Each variation of Diablos' Charging Attacks can easily knock out careless hunters.

Charging Attack Variations
MH Rise - Diablos
Charging Gore: Diablos assumes a low stance before charging towards its target, ending its stampede by thrusting its horns upward in an attempt to gore them.

Dodging this attack is fairly easy as long as you are a considerable amount of distance away from Diablos prior to the charge. Walk towards one side as Diablos readies itself, then start evading or sprinting in the same direction when it begins charging towards you.
MH Rise - Diablos
Horn-Dragging Charge: Diablos slowly tilts its head down before quickly charging towards the hunter, dragging its horns through the ground as it moves.

The key to dodging this attack is to run away in a straight line perpendicular to Diablos as it positions for the charge. This makes it easier to determine and avoid the path of Diablos' attack.
MH Rise - Diablos
Sudden Charge: Diablos assumes a low stance similar to its Charging Gore, but performs a rapid charge forward instead of its usual long stampede. This attack usually occurs whenever a hunter is too close to Diablos, or after it sprints towards a target.

This is the fastest Charging Attack variation out of the three, so always be prepared to dodge or block whenever Diablos lowers its head.

Burrowing Attacks

Another one of Diablos' signature sets of moves is its Burrowing Attacks. In these attacks, Diablos burrows underground and prepares to ambush its target from the air or from underneath them.

Burrowing Attack Variations
MH Rise - Diablos
Burrowing Assault: Diablos picks a target as it burrows underground. After it completely burrows itself, it will travel towards the target and emerge underneath them, launching them upward and dealing an incredibly high amount of damage.

Sheathe your weapon and begin sprinting as soon it starts burrowing if you cannot block the attack!
MH Rise - Diablos
Aerial Ambush: Diablos burrows underground and begins traveling away from the hunter. After making enough distance, it breaches the ground and leaps towards its target, dealing massive damage on impact.

This move is particularly dangerous as Diablos' entire body turns into a hitbox during the attack. Don't hesitate to perform a dive-evade when caught in the path of this attack!
