Legiana is Flying Wyverns first introduced in Monster Hunter: World.

MHW-Legiana Render 001


Legiana is a slim, primarily beige-colored Flying Wyvern characterized by its leaf-like wingtips and striped skin patterns. Legiana's head is topped with a pair of antenna-like fins which are attached via a thin membrane to the back of its neck. It has bright yellow eyes and powerful legs ending in piercing talons. Its face, tail, feet, and wingtips are a dark navy blue, and its body is covered in striped patterns of the same colour. The ends of its wings are separated into four distinct flaps which overlap each other when folded, and it's tail has three retractable fins on the left, right, and dorsal. Legiana has star-like shapes on the back of its wings. Its back is also dark blue.


Legiana is able to emit a chilling wind from its body, which dulls its prey's ability to escape. It flies with extreme precision and agility, using its talons to grab its prey straight out of the air. Its legs are strong enough to throw even medium-sized monsters such as Paolumu considerable distances once they are in its grasp.


Legiana is known to live in the highest peaks of the Coral Highlands. It is an apex predator here, hunting prey of all shapes and sizes from the skies.

In-Game Description

Monster Hunter: World
MHW-Legiana Icon The apex monster of the Coral Highlands, whose diet primarily consists of Raphinos. It emits a chilling wind from its body, which dulls its prey's ability to escape.


  • Legiana will sometimes fight Paolumu if both Flying Wyverns come across each other.[1]
  • Legiana has been observed eating Raphinos, simply by grabbing one with its talons then biting into it.[2]
  • Legiana's head, back, both wings and tail can be wounded.
    • When Legiana's tail is wounded, it is no longer able to freeze the terrain with its tail attacks.
  • Corpses of Legiana can be found in the Rotten Vale. The corpses can be carved to gain materials to craft new weapons.[3]
  • Legiana's Turf War animation with Deviljho is the exact same as Rathalos.
