|MHFU: Ashen Lao-Shan Lung Music Theme|
The Ashen Lao-Shan Lung is a subspecies of the Lao-Shan Lung. It is essentially the same creature, only possessing a different coloring and increased health. They typically migrate from volcanic areas in the time of season where the temperature becomes too hot to handle. The grey appearance of their massive scales is due to lifelong exposure to the ashes from volcanic eruptions rather than the iron-like particles found near Pokke village.
- Unusually, Ashen Lao-Shan Lung has a different introductory cutscene to its ordinary counterpart (most Subspecies have no introductory cutscene at all).
- Ashen Lao-Shan Lung, as with Lao-Shan Lung, can be both slain and repelled.
- Fire Element weapons are a reasonable alternative to Dragon-Element ones, although they are marginally less effective.
