Azure Rathalos

Vincent Lau

Azure Rathalos has, unlike its cousin Rathalos, chosen to cloak itself in sky-blue hide to better blend in with the sky that it will often take to while in combat. More aggressive and powerful than Rathalos, the Azure Rathalos will also spend much more time in the air.

**Area** **Start** **Roam** **Rest**
Ancestral Steppe 4 2, 6, 7, 8 5
Volcanic Hollow 8 1, 2, 4, 6 9
Heaven’s Mount 8 1, 2, 3, 5, 6 8


As said earlier, Azure Rathalos seems to love attacking from the air, where most weapons cannot reach him. This can make him a pain to fight. Azure Rathalos is also much more precise and quick about its talon attack, so bring Antidotes. There is way to dodge without the use of Evasion+2/+3 so unless you have that or a shield, while sprinting press B to dive, which will let you survive. Even if you sprint around, Azure Rathalos will still find a way to hit you, and it is unafraid to use that attack multiple times in a row, which can stun you and cause you to faint.

Air Chomp: When in the air, Azure Rathalos will do a side-chomp. Like Pink Rathian, this will also unleash a plume of flame from its jaws that can hit you if you’re right below it trying to get in a hit.
