This week we look at the Armored Champion of the Volcano, Gravios!
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
Large wyverns found in volcanic areas. They possess a fiery breath attack and the ability to emit sleeping gas. Their bony carapaces are extremely tough, but expose a surprisingly brittle interior once destroyed.
Gravios gets the title, Armor Wyvern, from its stone-like shell that sometimes contains ore.
They are also sometimes called Armored Champions/Supremacys and Stalwarts of the Volcano.
Gravios is the one of the largest and heaviest Flying Wyvern.
The Gravios’ shell has become harder due to its growth. This new shell also allows them more mobility, unlike Basarios. Despite the harder shell of Gravios, its shell can be destroyed.
Gravios are known for being highly territorial. They will do all they can to eliminate a threat, no matter how powerful it is.
The wings of Gravios have started to degenerate though they are still able to fly for short burst.
Inside a Gravios’ stomach is a special bacteria that processes ore in the stomach, allowing Gravios to get nutrients from the ore. Gravios have a strong taste for explosive ores. These explosive ores help allow it to breath beams.
Despite being fully grown, Gravios sometimes can’t get all their nutrition from the ores alone so occasionally they must hunt.
From its giant size and armor, Gravios are able to resist the intense heat from the lava. Its body can even contain lava for short periods without the armor covering its body. This allows Gravios to swim in lava to travel far distances.
Gravios’ major organs are in the center of its body so it can’t take up to much heat.
It has a high thermal energy in its body from feeding on explosive ore. They hold large amounts of this energy in order to save it whenever they decide to leave to other areas so Gravios can defend themselves.
Periodically, Gravios release hot gas from their body in order to cool down.
When feeding Gravios are known to unleash a white gas that puts potential predators to sleep.
The beams of Gravios can easily go through even the toughest of rocks.
Its suggested that Gravios may use it as a tool in some way as well.
Gravios can vary on how they use their beams but most commonly a Gravios uses it as a weapon.
Despite their huge size, Gravios have one major predator. This predator is the rare Akantor.
