MHW-Girros Render 001


Girros are snake-like Fanged Wyverns with a head and hood similar to a cobra. They have black onyx scales with yellow stripes on their neck. Girros also have red gill-like organs on the side of their neck.


Girros have a paralyzing venom in their fangs.


Girros can be seen inhabiting Rotten Vale.


Despite their size, Girros can be relentless attackers, especially in large groups. Like Jagras, Girros will flee when one of them dies.

In-Game Description

Monster Hunter: World
MHW-Girros Icon Monsters that are known to attack in packs, using the deadly vapor of the Rotten Vale to their advantage. They're known to crippling targets with their paralyzing fangs.


  • Girros will become extra aggressive if they are affected by the toxic gas in the Rotten Vale.[1]
  • Girros are vulnerable to the Thunder element, but take no damage from the Water element, whereas the Great Girros is weak to Water and immune to Thunder.
  • Girros packs will attack any nearby large monster(except great Girros) that has fallen over or been immobilized, often paralyzing the victim with their repeated attacks.
