A subspecies of Rathian with vibrant pink scales. Pink Rathian wield their toxic tails more skillfully than normal Rathian, using a wide variety of attacks to weaken their prey before eventually moving in for the kill.
The Pink Rathian is a genetic mutation of the Rathian.
Pink Rathian returns, revamped, in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. She is particularly adept at tail-based attacks now, and can be found in the Misty Peaks. Additionally to her new tail-rotation flip she performs a fire bite instead of a normal bite.
Pink Rathian's tail is much tougher than the regular Rathian, requiring much more damage before it's cut.
HC Pink Rathian has a more purple color to certain parts of its body and more spikes on its tail. It has new behavior and attacks including a fire ball so large and strong it creates an explosion larger than the creature itself, and has a tail swing that instead of turning its body, it waves its tail around behind it poisoning anyone it hits.
