A subspecies of the Uragaan that first appeared in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd and subsequently in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.

Uragaan Subspecies render


This variant appears to have a hide of a deep metallic blue, rather than the golden hide of the common species. It can inflict the Soiled status using a sulfuric yellow gas and the rocks it tosses will burn for a few seconds after being thrown, inflicting additional fire damage if they hit a hunter before they settle on the ground. These will also release soiling gas when exploded.

Though the cause of the variation in hide and chin color are unknown, it is speculated that consumption of various metals and minerals from within the volcanic rock have resulted in an altered hide color. Although, it may be possible that during certain time when the volcanic areas had experienced rain, plus with the whole area has abundant of elements such as quartz, sulfur or calcium around, it may had undergone the mineralization process. Since Steel Uragaan itself is part-mineral, the mineralization process is somewhat similar to electroplating, slightly on the surface and somewhat absorbed a bit deeper, creating a typical alloy-like carapace.


The Steel Uragaan does not live in a completely different habitat to its counterpart. For most of its life it remains in the Volcano, and much like the regular Uragaan, it stays there because of the abundant source of ore. Surprisingly Steel Uragaan can sometimes be found inhabiting the temperate Deserted Island.

In-Game Description

Monster Hunter Portable 3rd
MHP3-Steel Uragaan Icon 鋼鎚竜”の異名を持つウラガンキンの亜種。通常種と同様、身体を丸めて高速で転がって移動するのが特徴。食性の違いか、体内で生成されるガスは悪臭が強い。体表に付着した岩石にもガスがしみこみ、それがばらまかれると、そこからも悪臭が吹き出す。
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
MH3U-Steel Uragaan Icon A metallic subspecies of Uragaan with an unusual diet that allows it to create a powerful, noxious gas. The gas permeates the rocks on its body, which then emit foul fumes when scattered. Like regular Uragaan, they can travel quickly by rolling.


  • To cut off its tail, you must break it first, then you have to make the tail flinch (Uragaan will lunge forward and whimper). You will then be able to cut its tail off after a few more hits.

  • Steel Uragaan gains a new homing roll attack, at the end of which it slams its chin into the ground and expels soiling gas.
    • When low on stamina, Steel Uragaan will fail at expelling the gas.
    • When it swishes its tail and throws off three giant rocks, it is capable of soiling the hunter unexpectedly and is recommended to stay away from Steel Uragaan and avoid the rocks as they're launched. Additionally, the rocks should be avoided when they are detonated.
