Red Khezu is a Subspecies of Khezu introduced in Monster Hunter G.

MH4-Red Khezu Render 001


Red Khezu is covered in a fatty, blood-red hide. It has greater control over its extendible neck than the common species and possesses a more potent thunder sac.


Red Khezu behaves much like an ordinary Khezu; however, it is capable of unique neck-thrusting attack. This subspecies, interestingly, is immune to Fire and weak to Water, unlike the Khezu.


Red Khezu lives in generally the same areas as the Khezu.

Other Non-Subspecies Forms

Hard Core (HC) Red Khezu

FrontierGen-HC Red Khezu Render 001

HC Red Khezu is first able to be hunted at SR11 and quest able to be joined at SR8.

Red Khezu has the same behaviors and HC Khezu with a few changes in behavior and look. Its backbone is very apparent from its skin as it makes it back look lumpy and it is covered in purple veins. One of its special attacks is it will walk around following a target stretching its head waving it around drooling acid that weakens defense as it swings.

Aside from having all White HC Khezu's attacks it gains another new attack such as showing electricity building up on its belly then hopping and releasing thunder balls that go in all all directions that even climb walls that cause paralysis.

Another thing unique is at any rank HC Red Khezu will run at speed comparable to a Tigrex charge on a roof while dripping acid.

At SR100 this fearsome blind wyvern gains a incredible speed boost.

It is undoubtedly one of the most aggressive of blind Flying Wyverns.
