Jyuratodus are Piscine Wyverns first introduced in Monster Hunter: World.

MHW-Jyuratodus Render 001


Jyuratodus is related to Lavasioth, and as such resembles a bipedal coelacanth fish. It has two dorsal fins, two pectoral fins, two pelvic fins, and a long, thick tail. Instead of lava, Jyuratodus covers itself in mud and sludge.


Jyuratodus is able to cover its body in mud for protection as well as breathe water at foes.


When left undisturbed, Jyuratodus won't bother anything within their territory. Once disturbed, however, Jyuratodus will turn aggressive and try to injure threats.

Jyuratodus is known to clash with Barroth, as the two share the same muddy habitats. During a Turf War, Jyuratodus will ambush Barroth from below and attempt to constrict and bite the brute wyvern, only to be thrown violently to the ground afterwards, resulting in both monsters taking damage and Jyuratodus being knocked over briefly.


Jyuratodus can be seen the muddy swamps of the Wildspire Waste.
