Physiology

Konchu have hard shells and can roll into a ball and attack in groups for protection, although they are still frequently preyed upon by Yian Kut-Ku and Yian Garuga.

Habitat

Konchu are found in a wide variety of areas, where they scavenge in the undergrowth in search of food.

Eytmology

The English name Konchu is a direct romanization of the Japanese name Kunchuu, with the U swapped for an O to match its shape and main rolling attack.

Notes


  • Like Altaroth, Konchu can also climb on walls.
  • Unlike most other small Neopterons, Konchu don't break into pieces once killed and can be carved for materials. However, if Konchu are poisoned, their materials can't be carved.
  • Interestingly, Konchu are well known for gathering around kills made by other larger predators and sometimes swarm the predators, to scare them away from their kill.
  • Konchu will occasionally latch onto a larger monster to protect them from attacks.
  • Under its shell, the Konchu's full head resembles the real world mantis.
  • In Monster Hunter Generations, Konchu corpses can be found in the Misty Peaks as mushroom gathering spots, however, living Konchu are not found there.
    • Other maps have these same Konchu corpses, suggesting that they may have susceptibility to certain parasitic mushrooms.
