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

So we had Poison and Paralysis, so now it's time for Sleep Ailment. I bet you didn't see that coming eh? ...Anyways, back to the topic.


With a Sleep Weapon you can, well, put monsters to sleep. This is similar to Paralysis since it leaves monsters unable to do anything; but unlike Paralysis, they will wake up after one hit. However damage dealt to a sleeping monster is greatly increased. Who didn't love those Deviljho Sleepbombs in Tri?

Notable Monsters

Putting monsters to sleep is certainly great, but when it's the other way around, it can be a nightmare. And these guys don't know what the Sleep Clause means.


MH3U-Plesioth Render 001

MHFU: An enormous, flightless, aquatic wyvern with wings that have evolved into fins for swimming. Although superficially fish-like, they can move on land as well. They love frogs.


MH4-Gravios Render 001

MHFU: A large wyvern found in volcanic zones. They possess a fiery breath attack and the ability to emit a sleeping gas. They also have extremely hard scales that deflect most weapon attacks.


2ndGen-Hypnocatrice Render 001

MHFU:A rust-colored bird wyvern with beautiful tail feathers found mainly in forests. A highly pacifistic wyvern by nature, it breathes sleeping gas on its enemies and prey alike. Its strong, developed legs pack a serious punch, so be careful!

Great Baggi

3rdGen-Great Baggi Render 001

MH3: Carnivorous bird wyverns like the Jaggi. Noted for their projecting cranial crests and bluish-white skin that's adapted to snow. Great Baggi craftily command other Baggi to surround their prey and stun them with a tranquilizing fluid.


MH4-Nerscylla Render 001

MH4: Wait, we don't have a description for this guy... yet. But hey, you gotta admit he's pretty awesome.
