MH Rise Sunbreak - Bloodblight
True to its vampiric nature, Bloodblight drains the life force of those affected by it. While afflicted, it reduces natural HP recovery and healing item effectiveness. The hunter's health also gradually decreases.

MH Rise Sunbreak - Malzeno Evolution
Attacking a monster overcomes the Bloodblight, restoring health based on the damage dealt. However, allowing Malzeno to absorb too much of a hunter's life force will cause it to evolve and power up.

Malzeno Butterflies Speculations

Prominently featured alongside Malzeno are flying red butterfly/fish-like creatures. If following the vampiric theme, they can also be interpreted as bat-like.

In the Teaser Reveal, Rathalos was seen chasing a cluster of them before being ambushed by Malzeno.

In the Three Lords Trailer, they can be seen surrounding Fiorayne and the Hunter before Malzeno swoops down to attack them.

It is a likely possibility that these creatures have a symbiotic relationship with Malzeno, acting as lures for its prey.
