Congalala Discussion SYMBOL Talk

Congalala is a Fanged Beast monster that inhabits a range of habitats, but is most commonly found in Jungles and Swamps.

MH4-Congalala Render 001


It resembles a giant, tailed gorilla with pink fur, a hippo-like head, and long front claws. The spike on its head is actually hair that the Congalala has smoothed into shape to signify that they are the pack leader. Congalalas are surprisingly intelligent beasts.


Congalalas are for the most part very docile. They react well to the presence of herbivores, so long as they give a wide berth. They can quickly become aggressive to anything that disrupts feeding or startles them.


In the Old World Congalala reside primarily in areas such as the Jungle, Old Jungle, and Swamp. Their New World counterparts can be found in the Primal Forest, Heaven's Mount, and Sunken Hollow.

Other Non-Subspecies Forms

Hard Core (HC) Congalala

FrontierGen-HC Congalala Render 001

In Season 8.0, HC Congalala is introduced. It has a new move where it can hurl several large pieces of dung. [1]

HC Congalala also has a new attack; it will jump and hit the ground, releasing an enormous gas cloud, bounce and repeat, bounce and repeat again. After that, it will spend a moment recovering.

HC Congalala has the ability release gas so strong that it causes dragon strength wind every time around it, knocking hunters to the ground.

  • It primarily uses melee attacks, such as charges or swipes, with an occasional belly flop.
  • Without the ESP skill, when the Congalala inflates its stomach, all attacks aimed at its stomach will bounce. However, it can be attacked from the side or the rear.
  • The Congalala's signature move is its fart attack, which inflicts the Soiled status, preventing the hunter from consuming any food items unless they use a Deodorant or wait for the status to pass.
  • The Congalala can also breathe flames, poison, paralysis or sleep gas out in front of it in the same fashion as Teostra or Lunastra using their fire breath.
  • The Congalala also has a dangerously strong combo in which it swipes 3 times and then does a body slam; however, this attack leaves it temporarily open to attacks, as long as the quake is avoided.
  • When enraged, its face and behind turn red, and it angrily blasts a fart. In rage mode, it is both faster and stronger.
  • The Congalala's weakspot, the head, will yield Vibrant Pelt when broken, and the remaining scraps of hair effectively make it look like a giant Conga with claws.
  • If the hunter drops meat mid-battle, Congalala may stop to eat it. This trait can be utilised by dropping drugged, tainted and poisoned meat. The Congalala indicates that it is going for the meat when it stands on its hind legs and sniffs the air. It may take more than one meat to inflict the desired effect.
  • Congalala have been known to fart when caught in a Pitfall Trap; consider keeping a safe distance away. It is especially likely when they are in Rage mode.
  • Congalala is found in much the same habitats as its stronger relative, the Emerald Congalala.
  • When hungry, the Congalala can release a sonic fart. This fart will actually have the same effect as a roar, but can be avoided by distance or the Earplugs skill.
  • Congalala is able to use a Dung Throw attack. One chunk of dung is sent flying a short distance, and if the hunter is hit, it will inflict the Soiled status.
    • To keep a Congalala from using its Dung Throw attack, simply do not break its tail. As long as the mushroom, ore, or bone is held in its tail, it cannot throw dung at the hunter.
  • An interesting thing to note is that Congalala falls face-first into a Pitfall Trap, unlike most monsters whose heads are caught above ground.
  • After dying, a Congalala can still damage any hunters nearby if they are standing near its claws while flailing its arms around.

  • Congalala's tail can be broken and will yield Territorial Dung or Territorial Dung+ (High ranking quests only), account items worth 500 Pokke Points and 2500 Pokke Points each, respectively.

  • It can become infected by the Frenzy Virus.
  • When low on stamina it will fail to do its breath attacks and will take longer to do its fart attacks.
  • It eats mushrooms to recover stamina.
    • It's also the only monster that roars when it's out of stamina.
  • It can now inflict Blastblight by eating Nitroshrooms.
    • However it can only cause Blastblight through its farts and not its breath attack, which does fire damage like it has in previous games.
  • Congalala gets a new super breath attack that has longer range than the normal one.
  • It is possible for Congalala to be in Rage mode when it is encountered; this is most likely due to it being attacked by smaller monsters such as Remobra.
  • In G Rank, it can hang on vines and move forward while constantly releasing fart attacks.

  • Congalala can be a pet. If you feed your pet Congalala certain items before battle it will start with Sleep, Poison or Paralysis breath (for example feeding it sleep herbs will give it sleep breath).
  • HC Congalala's roar requires HG Earplugs to block.

  • This monster is unlocked at Level 18.
