Physiology

Diablos is a large, bipedal wyvern with powerful armour plating covering much of its body. Its most noteworthy feature is its pair of massive, solid horns above its eyes. Diablos also possesses a pair of tusk-like fangs and a large, spiny neck frill. Its tail ends with a heavy, studded club that can be used to ward off attackers. A bulky wyvern, Diablos stands on a pair of stocky, wide-set legs and possesses a broad upper body complete with thick, muscular wings.

Abilities

Diablos has the ability to burrow into the earth and travel underground, employing this tactic to surprise unsuspecting targets or slip away from a dangerous encounter. In addition, it is capable of producing a powerful roar that will stun most aggressors. Using its powerful legs in tandem with its heavy upper body and head, Diablos can run at high speeds to charge attackers with its horns, using the powerful momentum to maximize the potential for damage.

Behavior

Diablos is a herbivore, known to feed on the plentiful cacti of the desert. Despite this however, it is wildly aggressive and will pursue anything which enters its territory. Diablos is known to use its two horns as weapons against attackers, but will also use them in bouts against other Diablos in battles for territory or mating rights. Diablos typically avoids flight for the purpose of transportation, as its disproportionally high mass prevents it from effectively flying for long periods of time. Instead, Diablos will use its wings to free itself when trapped in the sand.

Habitat

Diablos are commonly found in dry, arid desert environments. The soft, loose earth allows for digging and the water-rich cacti provide it with both nutrition and hydration. However in Monster Hunter 3 and 4 Ultimate Diablos can also be found at the Deserted Island and Unknown Great Forest.

Other Non-Subspecies Forms

Hard Core (HC) Diablos

FrontierGen-HC Diablos Render 001 (Edited)

HC Diablos has a new more powerful look, it has very large horns, stronger, vein covered wings,and more muscle mass. It also has new moves and behavior. When it digs, it will pick a target and dig back out at a surprising speed, leaving a trail of large rocks raining everywhere it digs and a new tail attack.

Notes


  • Diablos is said to have been inspired by a Kaiju (Giant Monster) [1], although no particular one was mentioned. In addition, its head and face seem to be inspired by the skulls of various Ceratopsians, as well as the tusks of pachyderms and boars.
  • Most Diablos weapons have negative Affinity, ranging from -5% to -50%. An exception to this is the Chaotic Order and the Ebony King Bow (The latter actually has 20% positive affinity). To balance this downgrade, they have great raw power and white and purple (with Sharpness+1) sharpness.
  • If Diablos is hit when underground (i.e. bomb or boomerang), and is staggered, it will have the same affect of a sonic bomb.
  • Diablos has appeared in every Monster Hunter game except for Monster Hunter Diary, and Monster Hunter 4.
  • Even though it is a herbivore, a Diablos is seen attacking a Cephadrome used as bait by Curlon Belusas in the Monster Hunter Orage Volume 2. It's seen with the Cephadrome in her mouth, even though it's normal for it to attack with its horns.


  • There are two High Rank quests featuring a unique Diablos: one from the Guild and the other from Nekoht, the Felyne Elder. In these quests, players fight the one-horned "Demon King Diablos", which has higher health than a Diablos of the same rank, and higher attack and defense than any Diablos.


  • Diablos, along with Rathalos and Rathian, are the only Large Monsters from the original series.


  • Diablos returns, along with Black Diablos.
    • Diablos has a new attack, taking the form of a quick, forward lunge.



  • Diablos can be a pet. Along with eating cacti, it is known to love eating Yale Nuts found in the Gorge and rarely the Tower, along with the rare Dosbiscus flower from the Tower.
