This week we look at the best monster in the series Thunder Wolf Wyvern, Zinogre!
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
Fanged wyverns whose bodies are streaked with electricity. Sharp claws and strong limbs allow them to thrive in mountainous terrain. During hunts, they gather numerous Thunderbugs to boost their power and enter a supercharged state.
Zinogre like the taste of Bird Wyvern meat and prefer to hunt for small Bird Wyverns.
They were considered to be a rare monster until Amatsumagatsuchi kicked them off their mountain in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, causing them to become common around Yukumo and dangerous.
Zinogre raise their young in herds for protection from predators and by working together. The young have more hair on their bodies compared to adults, this protects the juvenile's shell and speeds up the storage of electricity. This fur will shed as the juvenile matures into adulthood.
The Zinogre in the Heaven's Mount and Misty Peaks are the same species due to Yukumo also being in the Siki Country.
Their hair helps them charge up electricity and store it. Their shell stores lightning like Lagiacrus but in their legs and holds larger amounts the Thunder Element. The hair and shell on the young are underdeveloped so they can't do this yet.
The legs of Zinogre are large and strong because they use them to climb steep mountains.
With a single hit from the claws of Zinogre, it will kill in a single powerful blow.
When it uses the Thunder Bugs to charge, it will charge and use electricity beyond its normal limit. When it has gotten enough, is spike will erect and release the energy from its body. Its power is on par with Lagiacrus and it discharges a lot from its body.
While Fully Charged, its strength and speed increase and, from parts of its body now being open, it's now weaker to attacks.
The reason why Thunderbugs gather around Zinogre is for protection against Gargwa and their relationship is mutual.
