How to Beat Shagaru Magala

Overcome the Frenzy Virus

Shagaru 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 (Shagaru Magala) - MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Go Aggressive to Overcome the Frenzy

Overcome the Frenzy by going to the offensive and attacking Shagaru 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 (Shagaru Magala) - Use Nulberrry to Reduce the Gauge Buildup

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 Shagaru Magala is unusually aggressive and you can't find an opening to attack.

Nulberry Location: How to Get and Effects

Take Note of Its Two Rage Modes

Shagaru Magala Rage Modes
MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Frenzied Mode
Frenzied Mode: S. Magala will simply roar from the ground, cloaking itself with Frenzy.

While in this mode, Shagaru Magala will have increased aggression and will use more Frenzied attacks.
MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Ultra Frenzied Mode
Ultra Frenzied Mode: S. Magala will fly up then roar from the skies, summoning Frenzied Pillars on the ground.

While in this mode, Shagaru Magala can summon Frenzied Pillars with most attacks and it gets access to Frenzied Beam attacks.

Shagaru Magala has two rage modes, each giving it access to some unique moves. You can easily identify which rage mode S. Magala is entering by the roar animation.

Target the Head When Enraged

MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Target Head When Enraged

When Shagaru Magala is enraged characterized by a frenzy cloud on its mouth, you should focus your attacks on the head. Dealing enough damage on the head will cause Shagaru Magala to topple down, giving you free hits.

Horns Can Be Broken Twice

1st Horn Break 2nd Horn Break

Take note that it is possible to break Shagaru Magala's horns twice. Don't stop hitting its head to maximize all Broken Part rewards!

Safest Place is Near The Abdomen

MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Safest place is Near Its Abdomen

Shagaru Magala has a lot of full frontal assault moves that targets anything infront of it.

If you're having a tough time, we suggest staying underneath Shagaru Magala near its abdomen. Most of its move do not reach this area and it also gives you visibility to react to its moves.

Traps Do Not Work At All

Shagaru Magala is nimble and wise enough to avoid any traps. By extension, Shagaru Magala is also not capturable.

Frenzy Breath

Frenzy Breath Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Frenzy Breath
Frenzy Breath: Like Gore Magala, Shagaru Magala can fire projectiles that can infect its victims with the Frenzy Virus.

Shagaru Magala's version is faster but only travels in a straight line. Avoid simply by rolling towards the monster and sneak in some hits.

Aerial Lunge

Aerial Lunge Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Aerial Lunge
Aerial Lunge: Shagaru Magala quickly lunges down from the skies to deal damage to anything on the way. 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!

Lunging Bite

Lunging Bite Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Lunging Bite
Lunging Bite: Shagaru Magala quickly charges toward hunters for this attack.

This can flinch a Hunter leaving it open for a follow up attack.

Draco Tackle

Draco Tackle Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Draco Tackle
Draco Tackle: Shagaru Magala uses its entire length and rushes sideways with full force. This can throw Hunter caught in the way.

This monster will usually charge before executing this move so it can be easily evaded if you use it as a telegraph.

Wingarm Grapple

Wingarm Grapple Attack Information
MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Wingarm Grapple
Wingarm Grapple: Shagaru Magala's grapple move that can leave Hunter incapacitated if they don't have any Wirebugs. It then follows up the move with another stronger move!

Ground Slam Attack Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Single Arm Slam
Single Arm Slam: Shagaru Magala raises one of its wingarm, then slams them down. Evade to the direction opposite the arm to evade this move. When enraged, it can execute this move twice - one instance for each wingarm.
MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Ground Slam
Ground Slam: Shagaru Magala raises both of its wingarms, then slams them down. Avoid staying in front of this attack. While on Ultra Frenzy mode, this move summons Frenzied Pillars in front of Shagaru Magala.

Frenzy Burst

Shagaru Magala is able to release explosive breath attacks, ending with multiple bursts.

Frenzy Burst Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Line Burst
Line Burst: Shagaru Magala fires a ball of Frenzy that explodes multiple times in a straight line.

Avoid this move by rolling sideways during the ball phase, then backways during the burst phase.

Take note that the first burst will travel to the sides while the second burst will travel in a straight line.

Wingarm Swipe

Shagaru Magala uses its strong wingarms with full force to quickly take a swipe on enemies in front of it.

Frenzied Arm Swipe Attack Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Wingarm Swipe
Wingarm Swipe (Normal): Shagaru Magala suddenly turns around and uses its strong wingarm to take a swipe on anything near its tail. This can be easily avoided by rolling backwards.
MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Frenzied Arm Swipe
Frenzied Arm Swipe (Ultra Frenzied): When Ultra Frenzied, its wingarm will be imbued with Frenzy and can summon Frenzied Pillars on the ground after a quick arm swipe.

This move is easily avoidable by evading sideways. However, if you're caught by the initial wingarm swipe, do not wirefall away so you won't take the damage from follow up Frenzied Pillars.

Frenzied Beam Attacks

Shagaru Magala can use the full force of the Frenzy to expel a strong beam from its mouth. These moves only happen while on Ultra Frenzied Mode.

Frenzied Beam Attack Variations
MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Frenzied Beam
Frenzied Beam (Ultra Frenzied): Shagaru Magala will rear in then blasts a strong Frenzied Beam that travels in a straight line.

Simply evade sideways to avoid this move.
MH Rise Sunbreak (Shagaru Magala) - Sweeping Beam
Sweeping Beam (Ultra Frenzied): The monster will stand up on its hind legs then expel a Frenzied Beam that sweeps from one side to another. The angle of sweep is not very large so its quite easy to evade this move.

To avoid this move, roll towards Shagaru Magala's back. If you're far away, run sideways and when the beam is about to hit, execute an emergency evade.
