Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Guide

3 months ago · Guide Information


Royal Ludroth

Family : Leviathan

Size : Large

Element : Water


The alpha male of the Ludroth, which is hardly surprising given its far superior size. Like its lesser kind, the Royal Ludroth is adept at both ground and underwater combat. Thanks to its absorbant mane, it can produce high volumes of water quickly for powerful water-based assaults.

Key Attacks

Barrel Roll : The Royal Ludroth will turn side on, looking at the hunter, and then roll over itself in a steamroller fashion.

Charge : The Royal Ludroth with screech and charge towards the hunter

Waterball : The Royal Ludroth will pull its head back and then lunge it forward, launching a blob of water at the hunter. May fire three, one straight, one left and one right.

Waterball Charge : The Royal Ludroth charges towards the hunter, throwing water blobs left and right. You want to try and slip in between the side of the Ludroth and its projectiles.

Water Slam : The Royal Ludroth will raise up and then slam its body down to the ground, causing a large watery 'explosion' in front of it.

Recommended Strategy

The best place to attack the Royal Ludroth is on its side, around its mane or tail.

You do not want to attack the Royal Ludroth around its mid-rift simply because this gives you further to move in order to avoid the beast’s Barrel Roll move. That’s the first move you need to learn to identify, too, as it can occur often and send you flying on hit.

Focus on dealing damage and constantly moving away from potential Barrel Roll range, moving back in to attack once you’ve ascertained that the Royal Ludroth isn’t going to roll or charge.


  • Royal Ludroth will attack a Gobul if they are in the same area.
  • The Royal Ludroth's water based projectiles can cause Waterblight.
