|The form taken by Gore Magala once they mature and molt. Gorgeous, glittering scales cover Shagaru Magala, and their divine wings are large enough to wrap around their entire body. According to records, one was once said to have scattered its black scales over an area the size of a mountain, annihilating any and the all lifeforms inhabiting that region.|

Higher numbers indicate higher potential damage to the monster.
Shagaru Magala use a variety of attacks—including area breath attacks and explosive pollen—and wield their black scales to even deadier effect than Gore Magala. The Frenzy is as much of a threat as ever, so don't forget to bring Nulberries. Keep you eyes and ears peeled for powerful wingarm strikes and their bevy of breath attacks.

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

|Frenzy Breath Attack Information|
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 Attack Information|
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 Attack Information|
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 Attack Information|
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 Attack Information|
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!
This move does not deal huge damage but the following attack will. Simply wirefall away to avoid the follow up!
Shagaru Magala slams its wingarms with full force, cracking even the ground beneath.
|Ground Slam Attack Variations|
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.
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.
Shagaru Magala is able to release explosive breath attacks, ending with multiple bursts.
|Frenzy Burst Variations|
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.
Ground Zero Burst: Shagaru Magala releases bursts of Frenzy infront of it, exploding multiple times.
Take note that the first burst will travel to the sides while the second burst will travel in a straight line.
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|
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.
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.
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|
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.
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.
