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

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 Attacks

Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Diagonal Tail Swipe.gif
Ibushi can use its long tail to attack hunters in a variety of ways. See all of its Tail Attack patterns below:

Ibushi Tail Attack Patterns
Spinning Tail Slam Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Spinning Tail Slam.gif
Ibushi spins and quickly slams its tail towards the front. This particular pattern can target both the hunter and the gate and may produce an Updraft or Dragon Burst.
Tail Uppercut Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Tail Uppercut.gif
Ibushi performs a sommersault in the air, flinging its tail straight-up in the process. This pattern can send a Dragon Burst flying towards the target.
Diagonal Tail Flip Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Diagonal Tail Swipe.gif
Ibushi diagonally sweeps its tail on one of its sides, launching anyone caught in the attack. This pattern is usually a follow-up whenever it creates multiple Updrafts at once.

Charged Dragon Cannon

Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Charged Dragon Cannon.gif
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.

Dragon's Maw

Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Double Chomp.gif
Ibushi uses its massive maw to bite hunters within range. See the possible patterns below:

Ibushi Dragon's Maw Patterns
Single Bite Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Single Bite.gif
Ibushi floats back before quickly lunging forward to do a quickly bite its target. Always be mindful of this pattern whenever Ibushi suddenly repositions in the air.
Double Bite Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Double Bite.gif
Ibushi does two quick bites towards the target. This pattern is usually performed whenever you are on an installation platform.


Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Updraft.gif
Ibushi sends its energy into the ground itself, unleashing multiple Updrafts that fling hunters up high as soon as they set foot in them. Keep in mind that this particular attack is usually followed by a Diagonal Tail Flip

Dragon Burst

Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Dragon Burst.gif
Ibushi gathers a portion of its energy in one of its arms before unleashing them towards the target in a quick and sudden burst.

It is possible to get afflicted with Dragonblight from this attack. Keep your Nulberries on hand whenever you use elemental weapons against Ibushi!

Wind Burst Wave

Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Wind Burst Wave.gif
Ibushi plants both arms into the ground and fires a cascade of wind that deals high damage and knocks anyone caught in the attack. This attack can easily KO an unaware hunter as it has a long range and will destroy any installations.

Keep in mind that this attack is usually followed by a Spinning Tail Slam.

Dragon's Corkscrew

Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Dragon
Ibushi corkscrews through the air, damaging and launching anyone caught in the attack.

It is important to note that those hit while manning an installation can get knocked off of them as well.

Boulder Smash

Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Boulder Smash.gif
Ibushi curls up into a ball, gathering large boulders around it before flinging them towards the gate. This deals massive damage to the gate so knock Ibushi down or break the boulders at all costs!

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 the Splitting Wyvernshot and Dragonator

Dragonator Spliting Wyvernshot
Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Dragonator against Ibushi.gif Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Splitting Wyvernshot against Ibushi.gif

As with all Rampage Quests, using the Dragonators and Splitting Wyvernshot will deal massive damage to all monsters caught in their range. Always use them to your advantage!

Use Artillery During Boulder Smash

Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Artillery During Boulder Phase.gif
Ibushi's Boulder Smash is a devastating attack towards the gate that can cause your hunt to fail if left unchecked. Hop on a machine cannon, ballista, or cannon and blast the boulders away to mitigate its damage.

Alternatively, it is possible to knock Ibushi down to the ground by straight-up shooting it with the installations — This mostly works with a full squad though.

The Splitting Wyvernshot (and Dragonator depending on the area layout) can be used during this time in solo play to knock Ibushi down as well, but only if enough damage was dealt prior to the start of the attack.

Take Advantage of Ibushi's Updrafts

Monster Hunter Rise (Ibushi) - Taking Advantage of Updrafts.gif
Ibushi's Updrafts offer much needed mobility during the hunt when used correctly. Use them to land your heavy-hitting aerial attacks or when you need to get to somewhere else quicker!

Use the Power Kiln to Reduce Installation Cooldowns

Its easy to get two multiple uses of the Splitting Wyvernshot and Dragonator, especially in multiplayer.

Be sure to use the Power Kilns at the second area to start reducing the cooldown while your other teammates keep Ibushi busy.

    • 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.
