Attack While Zinogre's Charging

MH Rise - Attack Zinogre while Charging

Zinogre makes use of the Fulgurbug in its fur and charges it with thunder, amping all of its moves when charged. Zinogre, however, is vulnerable for a significant amount of time whenever it charges its fur. Take advantage of this and deal as much damage as possible!

Also, keep in mind that Shock Traps don't work on a charged Zinogre.

Attack its back when downed

MH Rise - Attack Zinogre its Back

Attack the Zinogre's back when it is downed will give the chance of dropping a Fulgurbug. Once the Fulgurbug is dropped, the Zinogre will have a more difficult time getting into its charged state.

Position Beside Zinogre's Forelegs

MH Rise - Position Behind Zinogre

You are open to the full force of Zinogre's Leg Stomps whenever you position directly in front of it. Always position beside one of its forelegs at all times instead to easily dodge these powerful attacks!

Focus on Zinogre's Back, Forelegs, and Tail

MH Rise -  Focus on Zinogre

The potency of Zinogre's charged state directly corresponds to the state of its Back, Tail, and Forelegs. Breaking these specific parts will significantly reduce the power spike Zinogre acquires during its charged state.

Equip Stun Resistance

MH Rise - Equip Stun Resistance Against Zinogre

Due to the Zinogre's thunder attacks, the likelihood of you being stunned is heightened. Crafting and equipping decorations with Stun Resistance such as Steadfast Jewel 1 is ideal when facing Zinogre.

Zinogre Attack Patterns

Name Description
Leg Stomp Zinogre slams its front leg, dealing damage and thunderblight when charged.
Summon Lightning! When charged up, Zinogre can summon lightning to smite its targets.
Charge Attack Zinogre will charge at its enemies with electrified rage.
Body Slam Zinogre brutishly slams itself onto its target, acting like a large thunder ball when charged up.
Headbutt Zinogre slams its head onto its target.
Electric Spheres Zinogre sends four electric spheres at its targets.
Zinogre faints a leg stomp but somersaults and sends you in the air instead.

Leg Stomp

MH Rise - Zinogre Leg Stomping

This is a classic move introduced back when Zinogre was introduced. When uncharged, Zinogre will slam one of its front legs forward with a massive stomp. When Zinogre is charged, however, the stomp will generate electricity - throwing you back while giving you thunderblight.

Summon Lightning!

MH Rise - Zinogre Summoning Lightning

Zinogre will call on the skies with a huge howl and summon lightning from above! Please evade when you can!

Charge Attack

MH Rise - Zinogre Charging the Hunter

Zinogre will hop backward, and followed by a charge attack towards its target.

Body Slam

MH Rise - Zinogre Body Slamming the Hunter

Zinogre will jump and throw its whole body onto you. When charged, this generates an AoE lightning effect in the area giving you the thunderblight when you are nearby!


MH Rise - Zinogre Headbutting the Hunter

Zinogre rears its head backward and slams it onto the hunter, attempting to knock them off their feet.

Electric Spheres

MH Rise - Zinogre Shooting Out Electric Spheres

Zinogre's ranged attack will have it hurl four Electric Spheres, in batches of twos, at its targets.

Tailryuken NEW

MH Rise - Zinogre Tailryuken

This looks like a new move introduced in Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise). Zinogre will perform a somersault tail uppercut that summons electricity that sends you flying in the air! It even feints with a leg stomp, this cheeky dog!

If you have played Iceborne, this move looked similar to Zinogre's tail flip attack that it uses to back off. This time, CAPCOM added in the lightning attack to throw the hunter away instead
