A male elder dragon that exhibits inexplicable behaviors such as floating upside down midair.

It shoots air from gills on its arms and tail to fly, creating its own turbulence and soaring to great heights.

Hunting Tips

・It possesses special organs called "windsacs" that store the gas it uses to float, and can be seen on its back, and tail. They are very delicate, and injuring them could open up a prime opportunity to attack.

Wind Serpent Ibushi Attack Patterns

Tail Blast

Tail Burst
Regularly, Ibushi will backflip and fire a blast of energy from its tail. This attack will shake the platform so be sure to guard if you are using a mountable installation.

Charged Dragon Cannon

Dragon Cannon
Ibushi will fire a beam of energy from its maw and rotate in a circle pattern. If you're are on a platform and are not using artillery it will knock you off.


Occasionally, Ibushi will follow up its attacks with three small tornado like updrafts. Being knocked into one of these will cause hunters to flip about in the air, so be sure to use your wirebug to escape.

Wind Burst Wave

Wind Burst.png
Ibushi will do a hand stand posture before firing off an expanding wave of wind bursts. This attack can easily KO an unaware hunter as it has a long range and will destroy any installations.

How to Beat Wind Serpent Ibushi

Take Advantage of the Counter Signal

Counter Signal.png
Ibushi isn't as directly aggressive compared to Apex Arzuros or Apex Rathian and due to its size its weak points are easily hit. This makes dealing tons of damage with the Counter Signal boost quite easy and should be taken advantage of as much as possible.

Use Artillery During Boulder Phase

Boulder Phase.png
Ibushi will curl up in mid air and shield itself with boulder's making it difficult to hit with melee attacks. Just hop on a turret, ballista, or cannon and blast the boulders away.

Use Splitting Wyvernshot

Splitting Wyvernshot.png
As with all Rampage Quests, using the Splitting Wyvernshot will deal massive damage to all monsters caught in its blast. Use it when avaliable.

Reduce Wyvernshot Cooldown With Power Kiln

Its easy to get two uses of Splitting Wyvernshot, especially in multiplayer. Be sure to use the Power Kiln next to the Splitting Wyvernshot switch to start reducing the cooldown,while your other teammates keep Ibushi busy.

      Is April 20 confirmed?? Where’d u get the date

    • >>[2]
      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
