Akantor is an exceptionally powerful Flying Wyvern. Its Japanese title literally means "Supreme Monster".

MH4-Akantor Render 001


Physiology

It has strong forelimbs, thick spikes, a clawed tail and large tusks. The Akantor bears a strong resemblance to Tigrex, the differences being that Akantor has only the barest nubs of forewings left, making it incapable of flight, and its immense size, which dramatically slows down its movements.

Abilities

Akantors are so powerful, they can have extremely negative effects on the environment they reside in. Predator and prey flee from Akantors and only the largest wyverns and Elder Dragons even dare challenge them.

Behavior

Akantors are highly aggressive and predatory - they are shown to be more than capable of taking down a Gravios. They will attack and kill almost anything on sight, often letting out a deafening roar before charging head on.

Habitat

Akantor is found in the Battleground, whilst in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, it is fought in the Lava Canyon.


Other Non-Subspecies Forms

Hard Core (HC) Akantor

FrontierGen-HC Akantor Render 001 (Edited)

HC Akantor has an unusual blue tint all across its body, as well as even larger tusks than before. In addition, it has a new set of attacks and movement patterns, including producing giant pillars of lava and fire as well as using its sonic roar to cover its body and cause damage to any Hunters too close.

Notes


  • Akantor's thick plating is strong enough to resist the Gravios' heat blast. This enables Akantor to defeat the Gravios in the video "Akantor Ecology."
  • When weak, Akantor will limp for a few seconds, even though it can't be captured.
  • Breakable parts include two spikes on the sides of its back, its chest, its two tusks, its claws on the two forelegs and its tail can be cut off.
  • Akantor is less vulnerable to Dragon element while enraged.
  • Throwing a Sonic Bomb into Akantor's mouth before it uses its wind blast will stun the monster and cause it to drop a shiny.
    • Sonic Bombs don't work when it is in its Rage state.
  • Throwing Flash Bombs at Akantor will only stun the creature for 3 to 4 seconds, a much shorter duration than for other monsters. However, this is an easy way to avoid Akantor's charge and other attacks. They are also useful in a large hunting party, where one hunter can flash Akantor repeatedly and the rest attack freely. Rotating the person with flash bombs results in very quick kill times.
  • Akantor's tail can reap up to two carves when cut, much like Gravios or Monoblos.
  • The Wind Tunnel will still deal a lot of damage even if the player is guarding.
  • Painting Akantor and zooming into the map makes him visible when he is underground.
  • Akantor's back can be broken by attacking his chest.
  • All Akantor weapons have high raw damage and high affinity, but have horrible sharpness, at most green or some blue even with the skill Sharpness+1.
  • Unlike Ukanlos and Odibatorasu, Akantor's body is not exposed during its "Dig" attack. Akantor is also the only one of the three who does not have a "Jump" attack.


  • There is a downloadable HR9 Akantor quest, which gives a unique reward: Great Stones. These are used to craft a special Raw Greatsword, the G Blade.
  • After killing High Rank Akantor, the Village Chief reveals that one of her ancestors used the giant sword in Pokke Farm to drive it to the Volcano.
  • Players are awarded Blood Onyx award when they slay Akantor.


  • It has a new move where it spins its body, attempting to bite whatever is behind it. This attack can inflict Defense Decrement when Akantor is enraged.
  • It can also follow up its Shovel Uppercut attack by pinning a hunter that has been knocked down by the attack, crushing the hunter and dealing heavy damage over time.
  • Akantor's Wind Beam now sweeps, and deals considerable damage even if blocked.
  • It is unlocked by clearing all single monster quests.
  • When Akantor digs, it does this much faster.
    • Unlike in previous games, a hunter can see tremors in the ground when Akantor digs, allowing hunters to see where Akantor goes while underground.
  • Akantor is found in an entirely new area, the Lava Canyon. Unlike Akantor's previous area, here small patches of the ground will occasionally light up and cause damage if a Hunter stands on them.
