Monster Hunter Freedom 2 / Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
Cephalos will occasionally attack boss monsters such as Tigrex or Diablos if in the same area.
Cephalos are vulnerable to loud noises, and will emerge from the sand if a sonic bomb is used. They are also affected by the loud noises produced by small barrel bombs and the cries of large desert wyverns such as Monoblos, Diablos and Tigrex.
Cephalos is unique among minions as it has a breakable part - its fin. Breaking this does not affect rewards or carves.
Cephalos is also the only minion that has the exclamation mark above its head when it spots a hunter. Most large wyverns have this.
