Velociprey Topics:

Velociprey is a Bird Wyvern introduced in Monster Hunter.

MH4-Velociprey Render 001


They have blue scales with black stripes, and a dull red crest on their heads. These carnivorous monsters travel in packs and inhabit many different environments.


An experienced hunter should have no problems dealing with a pack of Velociprey, though a hunter unfamiliar with them will have some trouble with their swift movements and quick attacks. Velociprey are capable of leaping great distances, making them difficult to flee from, especially when delivering eggs and large ores.

    • Velociprey are closely related to three other species of Bird Wyvern: Giaprey, Genprey and Ioprey. These minions first appeared in the original Monster Hunter, except for Giaprey, which appeared in Monster Hunter 2.
    • Velociprey are arguably the most common raptor species, appearing in the Jungle, Forest and Hills, Great Forest and Old Swamp.
    • Although Velociprey don't appear in Monster Hunter 3, they are mentioned in the description for Bird Wyvern Fang; allegedly a Velociprey Fang is very similar to that item.
    • It has been observed that Velociprey will actively attack a Rathian when in close proximity.

    • In Freedom-2 and Unite, it is possible to "erase" these monsters (and the other 'prey monsters) if you score a killblow with a cutting weapon while they are in mid-air during their high leaping attacks. This will cause them to become sliced clean in half and their remains will instantly fade away, leaving no corpse behind.

    • The "erasing" secret from Freedom-2/Unite was not carried over.
