MHO-Yian Garuga Icon


  • Order: Saurischia
  • Suborder: Bird Feet
  • Infraorder: Bird Wyvern
  • Superfamily: Eared Bird Wyvern
  • Family: Garuga

Yian Garuga is unique among Bird Wyverns, as it shares some traits with true Wyverns -especially the Rath family- making it powerful among Bird Wyverns. The One-Eared Yian Garuga is a Yian Garuga with two nearly broken ears.

Habitat Range

The One-Eared Yian Garuga can be seen inhabiting Esther Lake and the Ancestral Tomb.

Ecological Niche

Yian Garuga hunt almost exclusively at night, using its deadly poison or stabbing its prey to finish off its victim. If hunting another predatory species such as a Velocidrome, Yian Garuga will first stun the creature with its roar before launching any attacks. Rathalos, Rathian, Abiorugu, Tigrex, Espinas Subspecies, Dyuragaua, Berukyurosu, Nargacuga, Seregios and the rare Rajang are fierce competitors of the Bird Wyverns and are even capable of killing them if an opportunity were to arise. However, being one of if not the most feared member of the Bird Wyvern class these creatures are fully capable of defending themselves against potential threats.

Biological Adaptions

It has the same adaptions as a normal Yian Garuga, however, both of its ears are strangely broken.


Highly aggressive for a bird wyvern, Yian Garuga is known for attacking in a rapid, aggressive fashion similar to a Rathian.
