Something a bit different this week. One of the core concepts of Monster Hunter is elements... so let's look at one of them!
I'd be here all day if I listed every monster that used Fire Element, so I'll limit myself to just the most notable.
The first wyvern; without his enduring popularity Monster Hunter might never have got where it is today! And like all good dragons (yeah yeah, wyverns) it can breath fire. Though in exploding balls rather than a stream. Different, I guess.
Fiery in a different way; this duo can breathe streams of flame, but also shoot out exploding powder, and have an actual aura of fire surrounding their bodies. Cool or what?
Long term readers probably know I'm a big fan of Agnaktor; I just love the design, the lizard-like way of moving, the armor gimmick. And it breathes a solid stream of super-heated air! Totally nicked from Gravios, but Gravios is pretty bland, IMO...
A Frontier exclusive monster, this Brute Wyvern's physical attacks pack a lot of punch, but most some of his fire attacks are seriously impressive. Personally I love the move where he sweeps hunters into the air and dispels them with a fireblast from the mouth.
Again, just a quick run down.
Teostra Del Sol
Such a cool looking Greatsword. IIRC the Lavasioth one is better in Unite 'cause it has more raw, but still.
Its a Rathalos head on a stick! That's everything I want from a Hammer!
Wyvern Blade 'Silver'
A Fire element weapon that isn't coloured red? Stop the presses! But seriously, I used this so much in Unite. A great Fire Longsword, that's for sure.
