In-Game Information

MH3U-Lucent Nargacuga Icon
A rare species of Nargacuga whose behavior and habitat are shrouded in mystery. Legend claims it appears on foggy nights at a remote and well-hidden location, but the veracity of this claim is still being researched by the guild.


  • Order: Saurishia
  • Suborder: Wyvern Feet
  • Superfamily: Pre-Winged Legs Wyvern
  • Family: Narga
  • Species: Lucent Nargacuga

Lucent Nargacuga is a rare species of Flying Wyvern seen in the Tower. It is closely related to Nargacuga and Green Nargacuga yet far larger than them.

Habitat Range

The Lucent Nargacuga so far have only been sighted at the Tower 3 and Great Forest in the Old World.

Ecological Niche

Lucent Nargacuga are deadly top predators of their environment and can make easy prey out of smaller animals that may live in the Tower. However here they compete with equally deadly predators such as Silver Rathalos, Gold Rathian, Berukyurosu, Aruganosu, Goruganosu, along with Kamu OrugaronNono Orugaron and the deadly Molten TigrexKirin could be a possible prey item as the Wyverns could ambush the Elder Dragon and fatally wound it without being electrocuted. It is very likely that these Nargacuga can inhabit environments such as the Great Forest and Old Jungle where they can predate on Mosswine, Bulldrome, Aptonoth, Kelbi, and possibly even smaller weaker predators such as the common Velocidrome. In these forested habitats competition with Abiorugu, Espinas, Rathian, and their common relatives would take place. Overall these beautiful yet deadly predators are a major force to be reckoned with, with their sharp claws, teeth, wing blades, and tail spikes.

Biological Adaptations

A Lucent Nargacuga can grow to be 2503.8cm long and 653.8cm tall. Unlike their two relatives, this species of Nargacuga is capable of rendering itself completely invisible. This unusual ability is known as hidden mist, the hairs of the Lucent Nargacuga reflect moonlight along with using the fog of their environments. Though a powerful ability it is limited to nights when the moon is most bright. This adaptation can greatly assist these Nargacuga in hunting their prey and avoid being seen by rival predators such as Silver Rathalos from above. This may also have contributed to them not being discovered until recently. Another adaptation that separates this Nargacuga from its relatives are its tail spikes, which contain a powerful toxin capable of making a Rathalos woozy and killing a hunter in a matter of moments. Interestingly, the wyverns appear to produce these toxins in their tail but how is a mystery. The jaws of the Lucent Nargacuga are the strongest of the three Nargacuga species and are capable of biting through the toughest of armors.


Lucent Nargacuga are territorial and highly aggressive towards both rival predators and hunters. Their toxic tail spikes and invisibility during the night make these creatures deadly opponents and should not be underestimated by even experienced hunters.
