Shrouded Nerscylla Topics:





Shrouded Nerscylla is a subspecies of Nerscylla introduced in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. It is known to inhabit desert regions and it can be encountered at G-Rank.

Physiology

It is very similar to its common counterpart; however, it wears a Khezu skin rather than a Gypceros skin. Its back spikes are also bright-yellow in color, indicating their paralysis attribute.

Its different ability likely comes from its diet of the Khezu, just like how the common Nerscylla can secrete poison due to feeding on Gypceros.

Abilities

Shrouded Nerscylla can inflict paralysis with its back spikes and claws, and seems to demonstrate a mastery of web traversal, able to change direction mid-air by swinging on a different thread.

Habitat

Shrouded Nerscylla can be found within the Dunes and the Everwood.

Etymology

The prefix Shrouded was chosen because it describes the way that the monster wears a hide as a hood, and at the same time associates it with death and the grim reaper.

In-Game Description

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
MH4U-Shrouded Nerscylla Icon Desert-dwelling Temnocerans who lure threats into sand traps, then tear into the ensnared prey using their scissor-like mandibles. Similar to their more common cousins, they wear the skins of their prey -- most often Khezu.
別名”骸蜘蛛”。主に砂漠を根城にしている鋏角種のモンスター。巣を張らずに地中で獲物を待ち構え、足下から巨大な顎で食らいつくなど、通常種とは異なる捕食方法を用いる。砂漠の苛酷な環境を生き抜くためか、通常種同様、捕食した獲物の皮を身にまとう習性がある。

Notes


  • Its back can be broken twice, along with its legs and claws.
  • Unlike the regular Nerscylla, Shrouded Nerscylla can perform several web pendulum attacks before it lands.
    • Getting hit by its back spines will cause Paralysis.
    • Breaking the back spines prevents Shrouded Nerscylla to inflick Paralysis with the pendlum attack.


  • During the localization process, potential name candidates for Shrouded Nerscylla included Reaper Nerscylla and Grim Nerscylla.
