Gendrome are Theropod Bird Wyverns and the pack leaders of the Genprey. Their dual-crest and two protruding fangs denote their leadership. Although they are the second strongest of all prey dromes physically, they are typically the most feared because of their ability to paralyze hunters.

MH4-Gendrome and Genprey Render 001


Hunters can easily identify a Gendrome by their big crest and slightly larger size compared to a Genprey. The crest signifies leadership over the pack.


With a pack to protect them and paralyzing fangs, they are a force to be reckoned with. Considerably harder than a Velocidrome, Gendrome pose a challenge to novice hunters. Quick attacks and high speed allow them to attack with surprising power.


Gendrome are in charge of making sure their pack is kept alive and healthy. They choose which prey to hunt, and will often lead the attack. Gendrome will also actively patrol their territory alongside a handful of Genprey.


They mostly inhabit the Desert, where their green-yellow scales serve as good camouflage. They have, however, also been spotted in the Swamp, Sunken Hollow, Primal Forest and Great Forest.
