The Kanade Element is a mixture of Elemental Effects which can be utilized offensively by both hunters and the monster, Poborubarumu. It uses the force of pressurized water alongside intense cold of wind and ice to cause additional damage. Both elemental powers keep their full power, both Water and Ice dealing all 100% of their natural power simultaneously. The Kanade Element is currently exclusive to the Frontier Series and was introduced at Monster Hunter Frontier G3. Poborubarumu are the only monsters capable of using the Kanade Element.
The Kanade Element can be infused into weapons to cause additional elemental damage. When a kanade weapon strikes, it will apply both elemental values at once, but will either release a splash of water or a cloud of ice and snow into the wound, the effect shown will be the one which is most effective on that part of the monster. Kanade Element can be extremely effective against certain monsters.
