|Precious few sightings of this elder dragon have been recorded, leading to claims it can vanish into its environment like a chameleonー hence its name. Witnesses reportthat, when enraged, it can spew a fog-like breath, which seems to come out of nowhere, and enhance its strength by licking the pollen from Petalaces.|
Bold are the recommended Weapon Type and Elemental Damage.
Higher numbers indicate higher potential damage to the monster.
Chameleos have a meddlesome tendency to vanish suddenly, but by watching their attacks just before they do, you can somewhat predict where they'll reappear. Furthermore, there are eye-witness reports of a Chameleos not being able to vanish after its horn on the tip of its nose had been broken.

Antidote + Blue Mushroom
Chameleos deals Venom, a more potent version of poison. This can quickly deplete your health so do not forget to bring poison healing items like Antidotes and Herbal Medicines.
Each of the new Elder Dragon armors are designed to combat other Elder Dragons.
▲ Chameleos is affected by Thunderblight so it glows while invisible.
Elemental Blights can now affect monsters and it is denoted by a faint glow around its body. Use this to your advantage as you can see Chameleos' silhouette better when affected by elemental blights!
Breaking Chameleos' horn deprives it of the ability to fully cloak itself. Focus on breaking this in the early stages of the hunt so you can fight Chameloes more efficiently.
Taking advantage of Chameleos' downed state after a body slam is a great way to sustain head damage.
Whenever you see yourself inside Chameleos' Poison Ring, Wiredash upwards and avoid the ring! Learn more about the different Wirebug moves you can do by clicking our button linked below!
Target Camera can help immensely in dealing with Chameleos' cloaking mechanic. Just take note of the following steps:
This gives you a split second to react against its incoming de-cloak attacks!
|Stealth Attack||Attacks made while invisible, Chameleos uncloaks itself momentarily to attack.|
|Tongue Lash||An attack that can steal from the hunter. It can steal spiribirds pollen whenever it lands.|
|Bite Attack||Another attack that steals from the hunter. It can steal spiribirds whenever it lands.|
|Body Slam||Chameleos will slam its huge body to deal damage. It can also do this from invisible state by uncloaking momentarily then slamming its huge body towards unsuspecting hunters.|
|Tail Fan||Chameleos slams its fan-like tail to throw rocks in a fan.|
|Chameleos expels a high-pressure poison beam, dealing Venom to anyone hit.|
|Chameleos will look up and expel balls of poison. It can also breath poison clouds afterward.|
|A flying attack while expelling poison balls downward and expands to a ring.
If it hovers, the ring expands. If it flies to the side, the ring collapses
Poison Ring Vacuum

Chameleos' signature is invisibility and Hunters can be caught off guard when it attacks. It will temporarily go out of its invisibility state to attack but you have to keep track!
Chameleos' attacks can steal from the hunter, specifically the Hunter's Petalace pollens. It can either use a long-range tongue attack or bite attack!
A strong body slam attack that can send hunters flying. It can also execute a body slam from its invisible state. Keep track of its silhouette whenever it shrouds itself in the mist!
When enraged, Chameleos will often body slam twice in a row. Hunter's should take care not to get caught off guard by the second slam.
Whenever a hunter stays too long behind it, Chemeleos can slam its huge tail on the ground causing rocks to be thrown in a fan!
This attack typically comes in threes with the third slam having a slight wind-up before impact. Use this opening to reposition.
Chameleos expels a high-pressure poison beam out of its mouth, dealing Venom to anyone caught unaware!
Chameleos will look up and expel balls of poison around it. Afterward, it will execute poison breath attacks that can instantly proc Venom.
Chameleos will hover overhead or fly on the side while spitting a poison ball that scatters in a ring. Any hunter caught in the radius of the blast will be affected by Venom and everyone who crosses the ring will be as well.
When Chameleos hovers above the ring, the ring will expand. If it flies to the side, the ring will collapse in a vacuum.
As mentioned above, Chameleos may collapse the poison ring and cause hunters to get sucked to the center. Anyone inside will be affected by Venom so keep those Antidotes handy!

Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
