The Nargacuga is an incredibly powerful and highly adapted monster. There is almost no doubt that Nargacuga is the top predator in its most famed environment the Great Forest and a dangerous force to be reckoned within its other environments like Swamps and Jungles because of its night-time camouflage, coupled with its phenomenal speed. The only predators which would be any fight for the Nargacuga would be the Chameleos in Jungles, Kushala Daora, Espinas, Rathian, Rathalos which is sometimes found in Swamps and the Great Forest and to a certain extent, Yian Garuga, which sometimes inhabits the Great Forest as well as the Jungle. In the Misty Peaks, Nargacuga does not have many opponents that would be a match for it, with the exceptions of Zinogre and Mizutsune. Although Duramboros would not need to challenge Nargacuga for food, it would still likely try to kill Nargacuga due to its aggressive personality.
Silverwind Nargacuga have many of the same adaptions as Nargacuga, however, there is a few differences between them. Similar to Lucent Nargacuga, Silverwind Nargacuga has white hairs and scales though only on portions of its body. Its white hairs and scales are light in weight, allowing it to move freely more easily. Its tail spikes are covered in both and have a unique trait that puts it apart from normal individuals. Silverwind Nargacuga is able to generate blades of air by swinging its cutwings or slamming its tail, attacking prey from a distance. The waves of wind are powerful enough to cut up prey, making a creature bleed, and weakening the foe. This new found trait truly makes Silverwind Nargacuga are a quick killer. Due to the lighter weight of the hairs and scales, it is able to evade and jump much more than a typical Nargacuga.
Silverwind Nargacuga are truly dangerous monsters. The Hunter's Guild only allow hunters with special permits to hunt them down.
