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

How to Beat Wind Serpent Ibushi

Wind Serpent Ibushi Tips
Check Icon Take Advantage of the Counter Signal

Check Icon Use the Splitting Wyvernshot and Dragonator

Check Icon Use Artillery During Boulder Smash

Check Icon Take Advantage of Ibushi's Updrafts

Check Icon Use the Power Kiln to Reduce Installation Cooldowns

Take Advantage of the Counter Signal

MH Rise - Counter Signal
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

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

MH Rise - Artillery During Ibushi’s Boulder Phase
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

MH Rise - Taking Advantage of Ibushi’s Updrafts
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

MH Rise - Cooldown
It’s 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.
