Flying Wyverns (Japanese 飛竜種) are large, bipedal monsters that have two wings. These Wyverns are known as "True Wyverns". However, there are some Wyverns that are quadrupedal, operating their wingarms as forearms instead like Tigrex and Nargacuga. These monsters have been dubbed by fans as "Pseudo Wyverns", due to some species being reminiscent of certain animals such as the Nargacuga's resemblance to a black panther, Tigrex's resemblance to a Tyrannosaur, and the Barioth's resemblance to a saber toothed cat. (Pseudo meaning "False" or "Mimic") Some are flightless despite their classification as Flying Wyverns, like the Akantor and Ukanlos. These wyverns show their wyverian ancestry by the small forewings on their two front limbs. Still others are known as Cave Wyverns, (though Monster Hunter games do not classify them as different) and are named so because they spend most of their lives in caves. The Khezu, Gigginox, and their subspecies are included in this. They are known for their disgusting appearance. (i.e., leech-like mouths.) Flying Wyverns make up a large majority of the monsters in the Monster Hunter franchise.
