Jaggi are young male members of the Jaggi family, a Raptorial Bird Wyvern species, and something of a parallel to the "Prey" species of other regions.

MH4-Jaggi Render 001


At this stage of their lives, Jaggi are mostly pink, with purple foreclaws, back-stripe, and head-frills, and with cream-colored underbellies. Their tails are barbed along the length of the appendage, and they sport sizable frills sprouting from behind their jaws, possibly for making themselves look bigger to other monsters.


Though Jaggi and their kind display a higher functioning level of cooperation than other Raptors, Jaggi are often easily dealt with, even for novice Hunters. This is due, in part, to their boisterous nature; Jaggi will often spend just as much time vocalizing bark-like warnings against intruders as they will attacking them.

  • Jaggi are naturally afraid of fire and will often not attack a Hunter holding a torch. However, they will sometimes take advantage of the moment when the Hunter's back is turned. This fear of fire can be exploited to make gathering when surrounded much more simple. If struck twice by torch-attacks, Jaggi will usually flee, leaving the area temporarily. This can sometimes prove a quicker way of evacuating an Area full of Jaggi than actually slaying the group. Jaggia respond identically to torches. (Note that in the Level 2 Urgent Village Quest, Jaggi and Jaggia encountered must be slain! Scaring them away will only prolong the quest).
  • Jaggi can be summoned (often repeatedly) by Great Jaggi and Qurupeco.
  • Like Velociprey in previous games, Jaggi will attack a Rathian if they are in the same area.
    • Jaggi will also attack Rathalos, Qurupeco, and Royal Ludroth.
  • Jaggi can be stunned.
  • If a Great Jaggi heads to another area, Jaggi may sometimes follow it.
