Lunagaron have an organ that chills the air they inhale, circulating it through their body in a unique form of thermoregulation. They can travel long distances and endure environmental changes, allowing them to occupy a wide range of habitats. They usually walk on all fours, but can stand on two legs by shutting down their cooling mechanism, spiking their body temp to expand their muscles.

Bleed is Coming Back

MH Rise - Lunagaron

Odogarons, which we assume are related to Lunagarons, are known for their swift movement and vicious attacks that inflict Bleed. Bleed is a status ailment that drains your health over time. We have reason to believe that this status ailment is making a comeback as suggested by the appearance of Lunagaron and its bloodied fangs, plus its relation with Odogaron.

The Ice Wolf

MH Rise Sunbreak - Lunagaron Breath Attack

Ice is Lunagaron's main element, as suggested by the teaser and showcased by its breath attack. Its werewolf-like appearance could be an indication of the overarching theme among the monsters presented so far in the Sunbreak Expansion.

We would likely see more monsters inspired by European mythology or folklore such as Dracula or vampires (where we see similarities with Malzeno's design) or the monsters from the books of H.P. Lovecraft. A monster that looks like the Cthulhu would be freaky, wouldn't it?

Lunagaron Can Change Forms

MH Rise Sunbreak - Lunagaron - Changing Forms

Much like a werewolf, Lunagaron can change its form. This was confirmed by the Director of Sunbreak, Yoshitake Suzuki, in a recent tweet from the official twitter page of MH Rise. In the teaser we can see Lunagaron's frozen spikes open up as it shakes and make a sound, and apparently this signals Lunagaron's transformation.

Also according to the tweet, Suzuki described Lunagaron as a Fanged Wyvern with ferocious agility, prone to playing with its prey.

Can Stand Up Like a Werewolf

MH Rise Sunbreak - Lunagaron Standing on Hind Legs

Lunagaron can also stand up with its hind legs, much like a werewolf.

Once it is bipedal, it can have access to more moves, which can also incorporate its icy abilities!
