Gore Magala possess wings with black, shroud-like membrane. They lack visual receptors, heightening their senses by scattering scales from their wings to ascertain the locations of lifeforms. At the peak of their senses, feelers extend from their head, their wings unfurl, and they become frenzied. They're feared not only for their sinister appearance but also for the mysterious Frenzy virus they carry.

How to Beat Gore Magala

Overcome the Frenzy Virus

Gore Magala will periodically attack using dark-colored clouds that inflict Frenzy. While in this state, a new gauge will appear on the upper left side corner of the screen beside the Hunter's name.

Go Aggressive to Overcome the Frenzy

MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - Go Aggressive To Overcome the Frenzy

Overcome the Frenzy by going to the offensive and attacking Gore Magala before the gauge fills up. Overcoming the Frenzy gives the hunter a temporary affinity boost and immunity to being infected with the Frenzy for a short while.

Letting the gauge fill up completely will give you the negative effects of the Frenzy. Your natural healing regeneration will cease and you take more damage from all attacks so be careful!

Use Nulberry to Reduce the Gauge Buildup

MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - Take Nulberries to Reduce Gauge Progression

When you think you can't overcome the Frenzy before the gauge fills up, you can use Nulberries to lessen the progress of the gauge. This helps if Gore Magala is unusually aggressive and you can't find an opening to attack.

Nulberry Location: How to Get and Effects

Be Careful When Gore Magala is in Frenzied State

MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - Careful When in the Frenzied State

Gore Magala will stretch its wing arms and expose its horns once it enters the Frenzied State. During this time, it gains increased aggression and deals more damage. Be careful not to go in carelessly while it's in this state!

Target the Head When in Frenzied State

MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - Target the Head When in Frenzied State

Targeting Gore Magala's head while in the Frenzied State will cause it to topple down once enough damage is dealt. Use this opportunity to land extra hits!

You Can Only Break the Horns When in Frenzied State

MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - You Can Only Break the Head When in Frenzied State

Gore Magala has a unique mechanic where its horns can only be broken when in Frenzied State.

Use Traps To Focus on The Head

MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - Traps Work, Flash and Sonic Bombs Don

If you're having a hard time focusing on Gore Magala's head, we suggest using Pitfall or Shock Traps to make it easier to target. Reminder, monsters build immunity to traps so only use them when you're primed to dish out huge amounts of damage.

Traps Work, Flash and Sonic Bombs Do Not

MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - Traps Work Flash and Sonic Bombs Do Not

Flash and Sonic Bombs don't work against Gore Magala, but Pitfall and Shock Traps do. Use this to your advantage if you want to control this hyper-aggressive monster.

Gore Magala Can Be Captured

Though the juvenile version of the Elder Dragon Shagaru Magala, Gore Magala can be captured. Before evolving, Gore Magala is not yet classified as an Elder Dragon so capturing is still an option when hunting this monster.

Gore Magala Attacks and Moves

Name Description
Frenzy Breath A triple, Frenzy-infused breath attack that travels on the ground.
Side Tackle A quick side tackle using its entire body.
Bite and Tail Swipe Combo A wide reaching attack using its sharp claws and robust tail.
Aerial Lunge A quick gliding attack that can damage anything on its way.
Frenzy Burst Gore Magala uses its strength to create Frenzy-infused explosions on the ground. This move explodes multiple times in a huge area.
Ground Slam Gore Magala uses its huge, strong wingarms to stomp on the ground with full force. Send Hunters caught in the epicenter flying.

Frenzy Breath

Frenzy Breath Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - Frenzy Breath
Frenzy Breath: Gore Magala can fire projectiles that can infect its victims with the Frenzy Virus. This attack becomes more powerful while the monster is frenzied. The attack also homes in on the Hunter so unless you're near Gore Magala, you are sure to be hit.

On that note, try wirebugging or dashing towards Gore Magala to avoid this move.

Side Tackle

Side Tackle Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - Side Tackle
Side Tackle: Gore Magala uses the entire length of its body to quickly tackle Hunters staying on its side.

Avoid this attack by rolling to the side or across Gore Magala during the long wind up.

Bite and Tail Swipe Combo

Bite and Tail Swipe Combo Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - Gore Magala Bite and Tail Swipe Combo
Bite and Tail Swipe Combo: Gore Magala takes a bite at its target and immediately follows it up with a tail swipe.

This is a wide sweeping attack that catches Hunter off guard, primarily on the follow-up tail swipe. Always be aware that this is a two-stage move so evade or guard properly!

Aerial Lunge

Aerial Lunge Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - Flying Lunge
Aerial Lunge: Gore Magala quickly lunges down from the skies to deal damage to anything on the way. While Frenzied, Gore Magala will turn around after landing - making the attack radius a little bit bigger.

This lunge travels in a straight line so evading sideways will do the trick. If you're stuck and can't do it though, use Emergency Evade!

Frenzy Burst

While Gore Magala is frenzied, all its breath attacks become more explosive. This attack has it firing a projectile downward, ending with multiple bursts.

Frenzy Burst Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - Line Burst
Line Burst (Frenzied): A Frenzy Burst that has a follow-up explosion, lined up like a line in front of Gore Magala. Usually only done when Gore Magala is in Frenzied State.

Avoid the ball by rolling sideways then roll backwards to avoid the burst!
MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - Gore Magala Close Range Frenzy Burst
Close Range Burst (Normal): Gore Magala can also release its frenzy bursts at close range, so keep your guard up!

Roll towards Gore's tail to avoid this move. Evading backwards is not good considering the bursts have huge hitboxes.
MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - Close Range Burst (Frenzied)
Close Range Burst (Frenzied): A variation of the normal close range burst where Gore Magala will detonate frenzy bursts in a wider area!

Evade backwards to avoid this move or evade towards Gore Magala's tail!

Ground Slam

Ground Slam Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak (Gore Magala) - Gore Magala Double Wing Ground Slam
Dragon Ground Slam (Frenzied): Gore Magala uses its strong wingarms to slam the earth beneath it, sending Hunters caught in the epicenter flying.

It is quite easy to evade this move because Gore Magala has a huge wind up time before it slams down. Evade towards its back to avoid this attack!
