Hypnocatrice is a small-sizedBird Wyvern possessing orange feathers. It is equipped with a sleeping sac that can put hunters and other monsters to sleep. Hypnocatrice is mainly found in the Great Forest.
Hypnocatrice's Sleep Gas is capable of putting other creatures to sleep, including Velocipreys, Hermitaurs and even other Hypnocatrice. Compared to other Bird Wyverns, it has more control of its body movements. Its fighting style is very similar to the Yian Kut-Ku's, but much deadlier and more accurate. It has an attack where it jumps repeatedly at the hunter, attacking with its claws, inflicting surprising damage. When nearing death Hypnocatice's tail feathers start to droop.
A rust-colored bird wyvern with beautiful tail feathers found mainly in forests. A highly pacifistic wyvern by nature, it breathes sleeping gas on its enemies and prey alike. Its strong, developed legs pack a serious punch, so be careful!
Hypnocatrice in Frontier does not use the jump kick, but instead has an upward Sleep Gas attack that Hypnocatrice does not do in MHFU.
Hypnocatrice's only breakable part is its beak.
It probably got its name from 2 different words. One is "Hypnos" which is the Greek God of sleep. The other is "Cockatrice." The Cockatrice is a Wyvern with a rooster's head. We take "Hypno" from Hypnos and "Ckatrice" from Cockatrice and take away the "K" and we get "Hypnocatrice".
When in rage mode, Hypnocatrice's tail feathers will stand up more prominently, unless near death, when they lie flat.
