Hello, and welcome... to Discussion of the Week!

Um, by popular request I guess? This time, we'll take a look at the mysterious Frenzy Virus!

4thGen-Frenzied Tigrex Render 001


When hit by Gore or Shagaru's Virus attacks, or any infected monster, the hunter will become infected with the Frenzy Virus. It requires some time to incubate, represented by a blue bar. If said bar fills completely, the virus inflicts a large Defense Decrease on the hunter, as well as reducing the affinity of their weapon. However, if the hunter inflicts enough damage on a monster whilst the virus is incubating, they gain a large affinity boost instead.

Infected Monsters

Of course, Frenzy Virus can infect monsters as well. This does not only change the monster's looks, but also locks them in some sort of perma-rage! That's insane, Capcom.
