MH Rise - Chameleos

Chameleos is the first to be announced in a trifecta of Elder Dragons that arrived in the first free title update (Update 2.0) of Monster Hunter Rise last April 28.

Elder Dragon Predictions


MH Rise - Amatsu Elder Dragon Prediction

Amatsumagatsuchi first appeared in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. It is a powerful Elder Dragon with the ability to manipulate storms during its fight. With Ibushi and Narwa being the serpents of Wind and Thunder respectively, it wouldn't be surprising if the Storm Dragon arrives as well!

Shagaru Magala

MH Rise - Shagaru Magala Prediction

Shagaru Magala, the fully mature form of the ever-popular Gore Magala, first appeared in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. With its destructive ability to spread the frenzy virus, Shagaru Magala may return as one of the reasons for the frenzy in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise)!

Elder Dragon Characteristics

Traps Don't Work

Pitfall and Shock Traps do not affect Elder Dragons. This is important especially for hunters using Palicoes with Trap Skills as it may be necessary to swap to a different Palico specifically for Elder Dragons.

Status Ailments Have No Effect For Some

Depending on the Elder Dragon, status ailments have virtually no effect against them with some being more susceptible. Before any hunt, try checking your Hunter's Notes for details about the Elder Dragon to help you prepare!
