The King Shakalaka are Shakalakas that wear larger mask, have a club instead of a knife, and a BBQ spit on top of their heads. They are known for appearing in Area 5 of the Forest and Hills after 9 Shakalaka have been slain. It has increased health compared to regular Shakalakas.
In MHFU, for the first time, they are semi-boss monsters. They are surprisingly strong, doing a large deal of damage, especially when with a large group of Shakalakas, which also makes them difficult to hit. It now has a rage mode, in which its BBQ spit's fire gets larger and it shoots small fireballs. They can be found in Area 8 of the Great Forest during certain quests only. Their masks can be carved for Shakalaka Treasure, Shakalaka Inheritance, Armor Sphere, Armor Sphere+, Hard Armor Sphere, Heavy Armor sphere, and even an extremely rare Royal Armor sphere.
This Shakalaka chieftain pulls together the Shakalaka's as one, in order to act. Extremely quick to anger when approached, this hot-head can invoke his fiery wrath with emotion alone. Feared by even the most skilled hunters.
