The Shakalaka are small humanoids who wear masks and carry a small sword. Their leader, the "King Shakalaka" carries a large club, and wears a BBQ spit on top of his head along with a larger mask.



Shakalaka should not be underestimated; they can easily take out an unsuspecting hunter with exceedingly quick attacks and inflictions of poison. They are rather clumsy when they attack, but may also be armed with Bounce Bombs and Sleep Bombs. They are known to sometimes drop fake, explosive treasure in the form of a "shiny". Like the Felyne and Melynx, they will dig underground when defeated, leaving behind their masks, which can then be carved. There is no information on the face of a Shakalaka because they will quickly dig underground when in danger. Their intelligence allows them to live in a multitude of environments.
