Hello, and welcome... to Discussion of the Week: Dragon Element!

I really, really hope we haven't done this one already.

Notable Monsters

Kushala Daora

MH4-Kushala Daora Render 001

Bit hesitant to include this one as it's more commonly associated with Ice element (and wind in general) but I believe some of its simpler attacks do deal Dragon element damage. And I was really running low on early-gen monsters to talk about.

(Savage) Deviljho

MH4-Savage Deviljho and Great Jaggi Render 001

It's big, it's terrifying, and it's still weak to being lanced repeatedly in the belly. Oh, but Deviljho is such a cool monster I can forgive it basically anything.

Stygian Zinogre

MH4-Stygian Zinogre Render 001

This is a (somewhat unusual) case of a very good original monster getting a very good Subspecies. Stygian is just as fast and brutal as before, the colour scheme and design is excellent, and he has some unique twists, like the homing Dragonbug things.


FrontierGen-Doragyurosu Render 001
FrontierGen-Supremacy Doragyurosu Render 001

An excellent Frontier species - good design, looks like a fun, challenging fight and it isn't absurdly over-the-top. Special mention though to Supreme Doragyurosu, probably the king of Dragon Element.


Just a few of the most... dramatic.

Stygian Acedia

MH3U-Great Sword Render 017

It's a cool looking Greatsword, very powerful, and I love how it folds up as well.

Altheos Altrusta


I'm not sure it's the best Dragon LS in the game (it's certainly very good) but good lord, it looks like a scythe! That's brilliant!

Dual Dragon Ultimus+


I remember Ultimus Heaven and Earth feeling so damn powerful at the end of Freedom 2, but then in Unite they upgrade even further. They're just... the best Dragon Duals in the game, really.

Akantor Chaos Bow

2ndGen-Bow Render 032

You'd kinda think that Akantor weapons would be Fire Element, but not so. This is a very powerful G-Lvl Bow from Freedom Unite, plus it looks cool.
