The Yian Garuga is a Bird Wyvern, closely related to the Yian Kut-Ku and the Hypnocatrice. This Bird Wyvern is not only very different in physical aspects, but also very different in behavior, abilities and hunting strategies.

Physiology

Yian Garuga have a striking purple colouration, large defensive spikes and extremely tough shells.

Abilities

Their tail spikes are toxic enough that one tail swipe can poison hunters. Yian Garuga is also unaffected by Sonic Bombs (unlike Yian Kut-Ku).

Behavior

Highly aggressive for a Bird Wyvern, Yian Garuga is known for attacking in a rapid, aggressive fashion similar to a Rathian.

Habitat

Yian Garuga's have only been observed so far in the Jungle, Gorge, Great Forest, Forest and Hills, Esther Lake and Unknown Sea of Trees.

Notes


  • It is possible to dodge the Garuga's short screams. If timed perfectly with its roar players can simply avoid it by rolling or by diving without the use of Earplugs.
  • To unlock Yian Garuga, players need to have killed/captured at least 10 Yian Kut Ku.
  • Yian Garuga is sly and will avoid Pitfall Traps, except when not enraged or limping.
  • To make Yian Garuga drop an item, simply get it onto a Pitfall Trap.
  • Unlike Yian Kut-Ku, Garuga comes with many "breakables". The tail, for instance, can be severed. The beak, back-spines, both wing claws, and the "mane" can also be broken.


  • After completing certain 3-Star Village Quests, the player will be given a Special Quest (with a Quest Level of 6 Stars), in which they are given 20 minutes to "Damage and Repel the Yian Garuga as Best You Can". The damage the Yian Garuga has sustained will be carried over to the subsequent encounter, even if the quest is failed.
  • In 1st generation games that include Yian Garuga, it would be fought in the daytime even though it is a nocturnal predator; the 1st generation did not have night-time quests.
  • To perform the Yian Garuga Glitch, get a single Spiderweb then accept the "Revenge of the Yian Garuga" quest. Once the quest begins go to the veggie elder and trade the spiderweb for a special mushroom. (Players can also just gather a Special Mushroom from the spot near the Elder if they do not have a Spiderweb). Now just wait until the time runs out and the game will think the quest has been completed successfully. The next time a player fights Yian Garuga, his health will already be substantially low, making it an easy win. (Note: This glitch has been tested on Monster Hunter Freedom and it DOES NOT work on MHF2.)


  • In some quest, the Yian Garuga starts with two ears; in others, it starts with only one. In the Felyne Elder quest "Elegy for a Lone Wolf" the Garuga starts with one ear and a cracked beak.


  • Similar to Yian Kut-Ku, the Yian Garuga now has 4 toes.
  • When low on stamina it will fail to shoot fireballs and will get its beak stuck in the ground when doing its peck attack.
  • It will either sleep or eat Kunchuu to regain stamina.
  • In its intro video it is seen chasing after a Yian Kut-Ku.
  • It gains new attacks, such as quick beak slams and also a attack where it screams, then flies at the player and does a quick backflip.


  • Yian Garuga can be a pet.


  • Yian Garuga's fireballs are now unblockable.
