Large Carapaceons that live in coastal regions and sandy soils. Daimyo Hermitaurs use their massive claws to guard themselves against enemy attacks. These creatures wear wyvern skulls on their backs, unlike the shells carried in their infancy. These shells serve not only as protection, but also as a method for attacking prey. They are highly valued for their materials—their brains in particular.

Daimyo Hermitaur Hunting Tips

MH Rise Sunbreak - Daimyo Hermitaur Water Beam

Daimyo Hermitaurs' weak point is their head. Attacking it will inflict massive damage, so focus your attention there. However, they will use their gargantuan claws to defend themselves and to protect this soft spot. Using a Sonic Boom when they adopt a defensive position is an excellent tactic to crack the shell to get the nut inside.

How to Beat Daimyo Hermitaur

Know the Difference Between Water Beams

Water Beam will move Water Beam does not move
High aim Low aim

The Daimyo Hermitaur will use two kinds of Water Beam, but it's possible to tell the difference to know which action to take. When it sprays the beam higher in the air, it will crabwalk to the side while firing, so watch out. When it sprays the beam low to the ground, it won't move, so you're safe to stay in place and keep attacking.

Vulnerable During the Static Water Beam

MH Rise Sunbreak - Daimyo Hermitaur Watch Out for its Breath

Daimyo Hermitaur is vulnerable during its Water Beam attack, specifically the one where the beam does not move. It can be difficult to get good hits in during the attack, but after it finishes firing, it will raise its claws in a threatening manner, leaving it vulnerable.

Avoid Standing Behind It

MH Rise Sunbreak - Daimyo Hermitaur Avoid Standing Behind It

Daimyo Hermitaur's back may look vulnerable, but if you stand behind it, it will quickly turn around and charge at you. It can be difficult to avoid after seeing it, so it's best to stay away from standing at its back altogether.

Use Sonic Bombs to Break its Guard

MH Rise Sunbreak - Daimyo Hermitaur Break its Guard with Sonic Bombs

Daimyo Hermitaur will use its claws as a shield and hide inside its shell, but this can be broken with a Sonic Bomb. It will then be stunned, but only for a very short time, so try to get a solid attack in here.

Claw Slam

Claw Slam Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Daimyo Hermitaur Claw Slam
Claw Slam: Daimyo Hermitaur jumps and then uses its claw to slam the ground upon landing.

Water Beam

Water Beam Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Daimyo Hermitaur Water Beam
Water Beam: Daimyo Hermitaur sprays a jet of water at its opponents. At higher ranks, it will move around while firing its water beam.

Claw Guard

Claw Guard Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Daimyo Hermitaur Claw Guard
Claw Guard: Unlike Shogun Ceanataur which has sharp claws, Daimyo Hermitaur uses its claws more defensively, being able to guard against attacks. This move causes most attacks to bounce off its claws.

Claw Flick

Claw Flick Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Daimyo Hermitaur Claw Flick
Claw Flick: Daimyo Hermitaur can use its claws to effortlessly flick any hunter away, knocking them down.

Burrowed Shell Strike

Burrowed Shell Strike Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Daimyo Hermitaur Burrowed Shell Strike
Burrowed Shell Strike: Daimyo Hermitaur digs down unto the earth. It then stabs the ground with the spike on its shell which sends any hunter flying.

When Daimyo Hermitaur buries underground, it will soon emerge and do heavy damage. You have some time before the attack, so sheathe your weapon and dash or wirebug out of the way.

It can sometimes stick its head out and pinch instead of leaping out of the ground, but regardless, you'll be safe if you make your way diagonally behind it.

Crab Walk

Crab Walk Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Daimyo Hermitaur Crab Walk
Crab Walk: Daimyo Hermitaur will attack with its claws while crabwalking to the side.

Its claws will strike forward from its sides, so you'll be safe if you stay to its back. If you need to get close, move along with it while matching the position of its back.

Crustacean Crush

Crustacean Crush Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak - Daimyo Hermitaur Crustacean Crush
Crustacean Crush: Daimyo Hermitaur leaps and crashes its massive body onto the ground, sending anyone underneath it flying.

After using the Crab Walk, one attack pattern will see it immediately switch into this powerful jumping attack. If you stay directly in front of it before it leaps, you'll be safe as it will flip over as it jump and the shell on its back will smash the ground. If you're still following its back, you're likely to get crushed.

It will shake its body before the jump, so watch out for this sign and move in front of Daimyo Hermitaur.
