Azure Rathalos is a subspecies of Rathalos whose shell has a bluish green color. It has higher stamina, and is considerably more aggressive. Azure Rathalos is most commonly encountered in the Forest & Hills - however, it can also be found in the Volcanic Areas.
Azure Rathalos' Scales and Shells can be used to make a substantially more powerful version of Rathalos armor, although they both exhibit the same weaknesses to Dragon. The various armor sets made from Azure Rathalos materials are highly prized and valued.
Its wings are more difficult to damage than the other Rathalos color variants; however, like Rathalos, its head is its most vulnerable area, and will take more damage regardless of weapon type. Also, its charge has improved homing capabilities, and it hovers in the air to attack more than the normal Rathalos. It also has a tendency to stop and turn after a charge, unlike the normal Rathalos.
