Free Title Update 1 Monsters

Silver Rathalos

MH Rise Sunbreak - Silver Rathalos
Silver Rathalos, the shinier and deadlier version of Rathalos, will be coming back in Rise. Look out for the dangerous Hellfire Mode, where its neck will glow and its fire will burn blue. Also, prepare your Mind's Eye skill because your weapons will most probably bounce!

Silver Rathalos: Basic Information and Armor

Gold Rathian

MH Rise Sunbreak - Gold Rathian
Silver Rathalos wouldn't be complete without its equally shiny queen: Gold Rathian. Much like Silver Rathalos, you will have to keep track of its Hellfire Mode and prepare for your weapons to bounce.

Seething Bazelgeuse

MH Rise Sunbreak - Seething Bazelgeuse
Returning from Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, the Seething Bazelgeuse is a powerful variant of the standard Bazelgeuse which will stay in the empowered form for the entire battle. If you thought its explosive scales were tough to dodge before, watch out!

Seething Bazelgeuse

Lucent Nargacuga

MH Rise Sunbreak - Lucent Nargacuga
Lucent Nargacuga is a Rare Species form of Nargacuga returning from Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. It emphasizes the batlike features of this monster which plays well into the vampire-inspired setting set by Malzeno.
