In-Game Information

MHFU-Lao-Shan Lung Icon
A giant dragon few have seen and lived to tell the tale about. When on the rampage it wreaks havoc on all in its path. The Guild has built a fortress to repel the beast, but will it hold?


  • Order: Elder Dragon
  • Suborder: Mountain Dragon
  • Family: Lao-Shan Lung
  • Species: Lao-Shan Lung

An Elder Dragon, albeit a gigantic specimen. Lao-Shan Lung was once considered the largest monster in the world until recently.

Habitat Range

Lao-Shan Lung have been witnessed in the Old Jungle, Jungle, Old Volcano, Volcano, Polar Sea, and Fortress.

Ecological Niche

Lao-Shan Lung specializes in feeding on different types of ore and minerals, no matter what region it goes to. Though its size surpasses most other species, it has one natural predator that is considered a myth. That predator is Fatalis.

Biological Adaptations

Huge. One of the largest dragons ever documented, rivaled only by colossi such as Ceadeus, Dalamadur, Laviente, Jhen Mohran and Zorah Magdaros. Lao-Shan Lungs are very well armored, although their bellies are vulnerable, as are their heads. Their shells only thicken as the time passes by. A Lao-Shan Lung shell coloration is determined by the kind of mineral particles that float in the atmosphere and get attached to its body as the dragon ages: the ones who dwell in the mountains are colored red because of the abundance of iron particles, while the ones that live near the Volcanic Belt are mostly grey due to ash. Like most dragons, their roar is very loud and can affect hunters a good distance away. Because of their size, getting stepped on or whipped by the tail is very damaging or possibly fatal if the hunter's armor is low grade.


Extremely docile even when facing multiple foes. They appear to care little about hunters, as they mainly ignore them on their way to the town fortress. That said, they will put in a great deal of effort to break the fort rather than simply run away. Despite their low aggression, their immense size poses a tremendous risk to hunters in their general vicinity.
