Threat Level 10/10 Rampage Type
Major Weakness Other Weakness
Blight / Elemental Damage Abnormal Status
Elder dragons that can manipulate the weather and are able to conjure up unrelenting gales. Amatsu glide through the air on currents they create using their wing membrane, making it look as if they're dancing in the sky. The storms they summon are extremely destructive and can lay entire cities to waste, thus they are known as the "Looming Calamity." When enraged, their storms become even more violent, enveloping the area with unrelenting lighting strikes.

Amatsu Hunting Tips

MH Rise Sunbreak Amatsu Preview

When Amatsu start drawing in the storms around them, get ready for them to unleash a tornado attack. The only way to avoid taking damage is to use a Great Wirebug to escape into the air and to remain suspended until the storm has calmed. Ballistae are scattered around the field, but beware that Silkbinder Shots will be deflected when Amatsu are surrounded by their wind barrier.

How to Beat Amatsu

Beware of Its OHKO Move!

Amatsu's one hit KO move, we dubbed as Calamity Storm, can one hit KO all Hunters that are on the ground!

How to Survive Calamity Storm

Mid-Air Actions Wiredash Forward

Mid-Air Stop

Amatsu will first electrify the entire battlefield causing the HP of all hunters to dwindle down - with only the red health remaining. Once Amatsu does this, run towards any Great Wirebugs in the arena conveniently lit up so Hunters can see.

Interacting with the Great Wirebug will shoot you upwards. From there, you need to wiredash forward, and execute a Mid-Air Stop. This will make sure that you will be airborne enough to be safe from all subsequent damage from Calamity Storm!

Use the Cannons and Ballistae in the Arena

In this fight, cannons and ballistae will be littered around the arena. Each cannon will have limited piercing cannon rounds inside (hitting 200 per tick), while all ballistae will be equipped with restraining shots.

To maximize the use of the cannon, make sure to line it up in front of Amatsu so the round will go through its entire length. Also, take note that the restraining ballistae will not work if Amatsu is cloaked with winds.

Cancel the Suction Attack with Ballistae

In this fight, Amatsu will regularly suction air around the battlefield to power up its winds. Use restraining ballistae whenever Amatsu does this to cancel the entire move and earn an opening!

Bring Fire or Dragon Weapons

MH Rise Sunbreak - Use Fire Weapons

Elemental weapons are very strong in Sunbreak, so bringing an element that Amatsu is weak to will greatly reduce the difficulty of the fight. Amatsu is weak against Fire and Dragon, so bring weapons of that attribute!

Equip Stun Resistance!

Equip Stun Resistance

Amatsu has a lot of moves that induce stun, especially when it envelops itself with lightning. If possible, slot in Stun Resistance in your builds!

Stun Resistance Skill Effects

Don't Forget the Hunting Helpers in Camp!

MH Rise Sunbreak - Pick Up Hunting Helpers

Your camp will have two Hunting Helpers that will help you greatly in this hunt: a Rainbow Spiribird and an Aurorturtle. Don't forget to take them before dashing your way to Amatsu!

Amatsu Attacks and Moves

Amatsu boasts great control over winds and lightning, and it will try to use both while fighting you!

Name Description
Tail Attacks Amatsu uses its long tail to damage Hunters around Amatsu.
Wind Tunnel Attacks Amatsu creates a tunnel-like cylinder that sucks Hunters inside.
Wind Wall A wind attack that propages from Amatsu. Effectively hides Amatsu so Hunters don't know what move it's gonna use next.
Multi-nado Attacks Amatsu summons multiple tornadoes around the arena.
Water Jet Attacks Amatsu attacks using highly-pressurized beam of water.
Water Bubble A slow bubble that explodes after touching the ground.
Water Burst Amatsu charges up, then expels a water bubble that explodes immediately in front of Amatsu.
Lightning Storm Attacks Lightning attacks that hits the ground. One variation homes in on the Hunter.
Lightning Tail Attacks Lightning attacks that starts from Amatsu's tail.
Low Pressure Tornado A move that sucks everyone near Amatsu, then creates a huge tornado in the epicenter.
Calamity Storm
Amatsu's one-hit-KO move that can cart everyone standing on the arena. The only way to avoid this is to stay airborne.

Tail Attacks

Tail Attack Variations

Tail Slap: Amatsu uses its huge tail to slap on unsuspecting Hunters. This has a huge wind up so you can just easily evade sideways!

Tail Spin: Amatsu spins around and uses its large tail to increase the reach of this attack. Anyone caught in the area of effect is thrown away.

Wind Tunnel Attack

Wind Tunnel Attack Variations

Single Wind Tunnel: Amatsu fires a cylinder of wind that sucks Hunters inside. Simply run or roll away from the center of the tunnel to survive.

Double Wind Tunnel: Amatsu summons two wind tunnels instead of one, widening its effective range. Always aim for the nearest side to get out of the tunnel for this one!

Wind Wall

Wind Wall Attack Information

Wind Wall: Amatsu summons a wind wall that progresses in an outward direction. This move also hides Amatsu so Hunters won't know which move it's gonna use.

It will usually follow up this move with Water Bubble Attacks or Water Jet attacks so always be aware.

Multi-nado Attacks

Multi-nado Attack Variations

Radial Tornado: Amatsu summons waves of wind tornadoes that propagates outward from Amatsu. When Amatsu has winds around it, it will use this move twice - increasing the total number of tornadoes.

Rising Tornado: Amatsu throws the Hunter upward, then summons four tournadoes. To evade this move, wirefall towards Amatsu and slip in between the tornadoes.

Water Jet

Water Jet Attack Information

Straight Jet Attack: Amatsu charges up, then sends out two jets of water that can deal waterblight on hit. Amatsu can use this twice so don't let your guard down!

Evade this move simply by rolling sideways!

Water Bubble Attack

Water Bubble Attack Information

Water Bubble: Amatsu expels a water bubble that homes in on a Hunter, then explodes when it touches the ground. The bubble moves slowly so it's easy to evade, but the actual explosion is huge so anyone can be caught off guard!

Water Burst

Water Burst Attack Information

Water Burst: Amatsu charges up then expels a bubble that explodes in an area in front of it.

Evade sideways to escape this attack!

Lightning Storm Attacks

Lightning Storm Attack Variations

Homing Lightning Storm: Amatsu summons lightning that homes in on Hunters. You can see the spot where the lightning will fall, so it's pretty easy to avoid. Simply keep moving to escape this attack!

Lightning Storm: Amatsu also summons lightning in a huge area, but it does not home in on Hunters. Simply avoid the purple circular areas dotting the area of effect - as that's the drop point of the lightning attacks.

Lightning Tail Attack

Lightning Tail Attack Variations

Lightning Wheel: Amatsu charges up two wheels of lightning energy, then whips them forward. The wheels would move sideways, so take note of that.

The wheel summoned to the right will move left, so evade towards the right. Do the opposite for the wheel summoned to the left!

Lightning Tail-Claws: Amatsu slaps its tail, summoning lightning that propagates outward in a claw pattern. Evade this move by staying on the area between the 'fingers'.

Low Pressure Tornado

Low Pressure Tornado Attack Information

Low Pressure Tornado: Amatsu charges up and creates a low pressure that sucks all the air in the arena. Afterwards, it creates a really huge tornado that catches everyone sucked in by the move!

During the charge phase, use the ballistae in the battlefield to restrain Amatsu. This will effectively cancel the move. In case the ballistae are unavailable, wiredash away from Amatsu to create distance.

Don't use emergency evade, as the suction effect will still be there during the invincibility frames.

Calamity Storm (OHKO Move)

Calamity Storm Attack Information

Calamity Storm: Amatsu summons lightning all over the battlefield causing the HP of all hunters to dwindle down. It will then end with a powerful AoE attack, ensuring everyone on the ground gets carted. To survive this move, steps must be followed!

How to Survive Calamity Storm

Mid-Air Actions Wiredash Forward

Mid-Air Stop

To avoid this attack, run towards the Great Wirebugs littered in the arena and use them to fly up. Wiredash forward and execute a Mid-Air Stop to extend the time you're airborne. Jump down after Amatsu executes the final explosion.
