|Risen Chameleos are elder dragons that have found a way to overcome their affliction. By suppressing the Qurio virus, they have gained great strength and new abilities. They now boast superior poison and physicality, sending you off into a toxic nightmare if you lose sight of them. When their anger reaches its peak, they'll enter into their Risen state and their body will begin to glow.|
Reach MR 110 and talk to Bahari the Scientist
To hunt Risen Chameleos after downloading Sunbreak's Title Update 2, you need to raise your MR to 110.
If you are already at that MR after downloading the update, you can proceed to speak to Bahari the Scientist and Chichae the Quest Damsel to get the Risen Chameleos quest!
Note that you do not need to clear the Urgent Quests featuring Flaming Espinas and Violet Mizutsune to get this quest.
Higher numbers indicate higher potential damage to the monster.
After inflicting a sufficient amount of damage to a Risen elder dragon, they'll enter into a Risen state. In this state, their attacks are much more powerful. With RIsen Chameleos. they'll create a huge mass of poison then slam it with their tail to produce a massive toxic explosion. Stay on the offensive to prevent them from entering this state or to knock them out of it.

Risen Chameleos, as their name implies, have beaten their Qurio affliction and as a result, became more powerful. Risen Chameleos seems like a callback to Apex Monsters in MH4U where some monsters that overcame the Frenzy gained considerable power and were some of the most challenging hunts in the game.
As these are powered-up Chameleos and not different subspecies, they still use poison. However, its poison becomes more potent, and it also gains new moves and forms. Defeating Risen Chameleos in its quest rewards the Chameleos Risegem.

|Risen Chameleos Tips|
Bring Herbal Medicine and Herbal Powder
Pacify Its Risen State
Break The Horn
Beware Its Range
Use Flash Bombs When It Flies
Exploit Its Fire Weakness
Risen Chameleos relies heavily on its venom to significantly damage hunters and then quickly drain what little remains of their health. Because the venom works so quickly, it's better to use items that heal fast like Herbal Medicine and Herbal Powder instead of Antidotes.
Skills like Poison Resistance and Teostra Blessing can also be equipped if you need to rely less on items while fighting it. Do note that only Teostra Blessing can actually negate venom.
The Risen state gives this Chameleos new moves, stronger attacks, and enhanced speed. Since Risen Elder Dragons are technically afflicted monsters that have overcome the Anomaly, dealing enough damage to Risen Chameleos can knock it out of the Risen state.
Like regular Chameleos, breaking the horn limits its ability to turn invisible. While it's still able to conceal itself for short periods of time, it will do so less frequently.
What makes Risen Chameleos far more threatening than any old Chameleos is the range of its attacks. Whether you're up close or at a distance, you'll find yourself poisoned more often than not if you're not careful. Learn to read its moves and anticipate where its venomous blasts will hit to get an edge over it!
Risen Chameleos has an attack where it flies up and then fires down venom to the ground. It stays fairly long in the air, so use this time to bring it down with a Flash Bomb! Make sure to grab some from the supply box too.
Risen Chameleos are still Chameleos, meaning Fire is also very effective against it. In fact, nearly all its hit zones are at least 20, making skills like Element Exploit and the Elembane Jewel 3 must-haves when using Fire weapons.

|Double Tongue Lash Attack Information|
Double Tongue Lash: Risen Chameleos can use its long tongue as a whip to lash at its foes. Just like normal Chameleos, this can steal Spiribird pollen.
|Body Slam Attack Information|
Body Slam: A strong body slam attack that can send hunters flying. It can also execute a body slam from its invisible state. Keep track of its silhouette whenever it shrouds itself in the mist!
Its head will sometimes stay lowered on the ground after the slam, so this is a chance to deal massive damage to it!
|Jumping Tail Fan Attack Information|
Jumping Tail Fan: Risen Chameleos advances by jumping and then follows up with a tail fan to cover both its front and back. Unlike normal Chameleos, it doesn't launch rocks when the tail hits the ground.
|Stealth Attack Variations|
Stealth Attack: Risen Chameleos briefly turns invisible then swipes its head twice at hunters when it reemerges. It will temporarily go out of its invisibility state to attack so watch out for its outline!
Stealth Venom Blasts: Risen Chameleos can turn invisible and unleash two blasts of venom once it reappears. It can move around while invisible too, so keep your guard up while it's hidden. It will sometimes follow up with a Sweeping Venom Beam.
|Venom Beams Attack Information|
Venom Beams: Risen Chameleos spits out a concentrated beam of venom like a laser directly in front of it. It then follows up with a sweeping beam, inflicting heavy damage and Venom on contact.
Move away from Chameleos' head when it performs the initial laser and quickly run towards the opposite side of where the sweeping laser begins to avoid this attack. Alternatively, get closer to its body to deal hits to it while it's still firing the beams.
|Venom Breath Attack Information|
Venom Breath: Risen Chameleos fires off poisonous mist than can inflict Venom on those caught in it. The mist can go straight in a single direction or cover a wide area.
|Venom Fountain Attack Information|
Venom Fountain: Risen Chameleos spins and then expels balls of venom around it. It follows it up with two long-range beam attacks that can inflict Venom and sometimes finishes with a Venom Breath attack.
|Flying Venom Balls Information|
Flying Venom Balls: Risen Chameleos flies up and spits balls of venom that scatter in several directions. Upon hitting the ground, they'll continue travelling for some distance. It will fire two sets of venom balls, so watch for the direction they're moving when you're evading. Using a Flash Bomb during this attack will bring the monster down.
|Toxic Explosion Attack Information|
Toxic Explosion: This attack has the monster blasting its toxic breath on the ground followed by a tail slam, causing a large explosion. It covers a wide area around it, so stay clear once it starts the move!
Chameleos Risegem is the only unique reward obtained from Risen Chameleos. It is only obtainable via Quest Rewards.
