Azure Rathalos is a Subspecies of Rathalos introduced in Monster Hunter G.

MH4-Azure Rathalos Render 001


Azure Rathalos is a subspecies of Rathalos, and thus, it shares almost all of the same characteristics. However, its shell that is usually fiery red is now a turquoise color, hence the Azure title. Its wing webbing is lime green, and its tail has one single red spike on the end. It has higher stamina, and is considerably more aggressive.


Like all true flying wyverns, Azure Rathalos possess the cunning, speed and strength to fell almost any threat or prey they come across in the wild, though they will rarely challenge anything larger than themselves outside of their territory. They have stronger wings than the regular Rathalos, meaning they can stay in the air longer and pull off powerful combos with their fire breath and poisonous claws.


Azure Rathalos are very aggressive and intelligent, even by Rathalos standards.

Azure Rathalos are especially aggressive during mating season, when territorial disputes are more common, and competition for the best hunting grounds is fierce.


Azure Rathalos is most commonly encountered in the Forest and Hills, however it can also be found in the Volcanic Areas.

HC Azure Rathalos appears to have more developed spikes on his back and a stronger flame sac as it can spit more than 7 fire balls in a row in wave and spit strong fire balls that leave a trail of damaging fire on the sides.
