In-Game Information

MHO-Lightenna Icon


Lightenna is a large Neopteron that uses different types of electrical charges.

Habitat Range

Lightenna is known to live within Dawnwind Valley.

Ecological Niche

It is unknown what Lightenna eats so it can't be predicted how it fits in the ecological niche.

Biological Adaptions

Lightenna has thin wings that glow like magic. Unlike other electrical monsters, Lightenna has a special way of producing its electricity. The Lightenna rubs its wings together to produce lightning. Its horn is positively charged, while its tail is negatively charged. From those parts, it can use bolts of lightning. It can even combine both charges together for a positive and negative charge.


Lightenna are an easily startled species. When startled, Lightenna can actually damage an ecosystem easily from its powerful charge. So hunters are requested to hunt them down for the good of nearby villages and the environment. During Mating Season, male Lightenna will compete with each other for females by dueling each other. The electric fields, both males produce, can actually spread to seventy kilometers, making a light show at night.
