In-Game Information

MH3U-Baleful Gigginox Icon
A subspecies of Gigginox that uses electricity to stun prey. It is believed to be a random mutation, and as such, sightings are relatively rare. It may be possible to weaken its electrical powers by destroying the capacitor organs on its body.

Taxonomy

  • Order: Saurischia
  • Suborder: Wyvern Feet
  • Infraorder: Strange Wyvern
  • Superfamily: Poison Strange Wyvern
  • Family: Nox

Baleful Gigginox, just like Gigginox, is apart of the Flying Wyvern classification. Baleful Gigginox is a genetic defect of Gigginox that has adopted the Thunder Element from its ancestors, just like Khezu, yet it can't reproduce like a normal Gigginox.

Habitat Range

Like normal Gigginox, the Baleful Gigginox lives mainly in the freezing caves of the Tundra.

Ecological Niche

The Baleful Gigginox are active predators. It actively preys on Bullfango, Anteka, and Popo. Tigrex, Deviljho, Barioth, Great Baggi, Glacial Agnaktor, Stygian Zinogre, and Brachydios consist of the fierce competition these Gigginox must contend with. Despite competing with such formidable competition these wyverns are far from defenseless as their electrical attacks are powerful enough to stun a Barioth.

Biological Adaptations

Baleful Gigginox has golden-colored skin due to its genetic defect. This skin is similar to the ancestor of it, and Khezu, though changes to a blood red color when enraged. Where its poison organs should be, is where its electrical organs are. These special organs come from its ancestors, which once used them to capture and paralysis prey. The electricity from Baleful Gigginox is powerful but, can easily be stopped by damaging its exposed electrical organs. Like Gigginox, Baleful Gigginox have the ability to lay egg sacs. The egg sacs of Baleful Gigginox are infertile, meaning there are no Giggi that can hatch from them, and used as a weapon to protect itself. Baleful Gigginox egg sacs are highly explosive, though leave behind a shock of lightning.

Behavior

Baleful Gigginox are aggressive monsters that actively travel outside the caves of the Tundra for food.
