|A rare species of Rathalos covered in shimmering silver scales. Known as the Silver Fire Wyvern, or alternatively the Silver Sun, as inspired by their majestic appearance. These wyverns are known for their fierce breath and even fiercer claws, giving these threatening beasts exceptional combat ability. In battle, their attacks grow only more intense when in their Incandescent state.|

Finish the MR 10 Urgent Quest "Raining Fire"
Silver Rathalos returns in the first free title update together with Gold Rathian. To access their quests, hunters will need to reach MR 10 and complete the Seething Bazelgeuse urgent quest, Raining Fire.
Higher numbers indicate higher potential damage to the monster.
With deadlier aerial claw attacks than the standard Rathalos, Silver Rathalos also have a myriad of breath-based attacks. When in their Incandescent state, their breath attacks grow more potent, but their head also becomes weaker. Constant attacks to the head will knock them out of this enraged state, so focus your attacks there are you fight!

|Silver Rathalos Tips|
Prepare for Its Incandescent State
Attack the Head During the Incandescent State
Avoid Its Poisonous Claws
Bring Flash Bombs
Use Water Element Weapons
Silver Rathalos has an Incandescent state, where its neck starts glowing a bright blue color. In this state, its flames become a hotter and bright blue, and it will start attacking more ferociously. Packing increased Fire Resistance can help if you have trouble avoiding its fiery breath attacks.
The head should normally be avoided when attacking Silver Rathalos because of its low hit zone value, taking less damage and potentially causing weapons to bounce. However, the head becomes more vulnerable during the Incandescent state. Not only does dealing enough damage to the head and neck knock it out of this state, but breaking the head will turn it into a weak point even outside the Incandescent state.
Silver Rathalos uses its claws more aggressively compared to regular Rathalos. You'll need to watch out for them if you're in its sights since these can poison you. Bring Antidotes or Herbal Medicine to recover from this ailment.
Throw your Flash Bombs while Silver Rathalos is in the air, and it will come falling to the ground and might even drop something. This should help you reach its head and wings more easily once it's down. However, you can't spam these since it builds up tolerance against being flashed. It also doesn't stay down for long when it's enraged, so try flashing it only when you need it to stop flying.
Silver Rathalos traditionally has a weakness to Water, so try bringing weapons with this element to deal extra damage! Try aiming for its wings or break its head to maximize your elemental damage output.

|Tail Spin Attack Information|
Tail Spin: Silver Rathalos spins in place twice, flinging its tail around the immediate area. Each spin covers 180 degrees and can be easily avoided if you position just behind the head and follow it for the second spin.
|Claw Attack Variations|
Swooping Talons: Silver Rathalos homes in on its target and swoops down with its poisonous talons.
Aerial Claw Attack to Fire Blasts: When a hunter gets near Silver Rathalos, it can quickly fly up to strike them with its claws. Whether it connects or not, it will follow up with a Triple Fire Blast. To avoid getting caught by the flames, evade toward the monster after dodging its claws.
Jumping Claw Slam: Silver Rathalos steps in place with one of its legs before jumping. It will then slam its claws on the ground upon landing, dealing moderate damage and knocking back hunters on contact.
Like regular Rathalos, it tends to do this against hunters that stick to its legs often.
|Fire Blast Variations|
Triple Fire Blast: Silver Rathalos can release three fire blasts in quick succession, leaving the ground aflame for a while.
Sweeping Fire Breath: Like regular Rathalos, it can release flames from its mouth in a sweeping motion, inflicting Fireblight on anyone caught by it.
Spinning Fire Breath to Tail Sweep: A variation of its Sweeping Fire Breath. This one leaves a trail of flame on the ground and ends with Silver Rathalos swiping its tail while flying.
|Flaming Bite Attack Information|
Flaming Bite: Silver Rathalos charges for a bite while simultaneously releasing its flames. It can do this twice in succession. During the Incandescent state, the fire turns blue and deals more damage.
|Incandescent State Combos|
Incandescent Flaming Bite: This is a more powerful variation of its Flaming Bite. Silver Rathalos extends its wings and creates large flames while biting. It then performs a follow-up fire blast.
Claw Attack to Incandescent Fire Blast: Silver Rathalos attacks its target with its claws to poison and trips them. It will then turn around and blast its blue flames to burn the victim. Fortunately, there's time to retreat using Wirefall if you get hit by the claw attack.
Double Flame Streak: Silver Rathalos can do its Flame Streak twice in a row when it's powered up. Like the regular version of the attack, each streak leaves the ground on fire for a few seconds.
Double Flame Pillars: When enraged, Silver Rathalos fires a chain reaction of fire bursts that appear like blue pillars of flame.
|Explosive Inferno Combo Attack Information|
Explosive Inferno Combo: Silver Rathalos flies around the arena while firing blue fireballs that stick on the ground. It finishes the attack with a final fireball that explodes to cover a large area.
