Gold Rathian

Vincent Lau

When the moon shines bright, its fae powers entrance the Rathian, queens of the earth, and they come out to hunt and dance. Some, hypnotized by the moon’s warm glow, will let that magic transform them into golden monarchs who will strike without missing and kill without a second thought. Nobody knows how the Gold Rathian has acquired its haunting gold sheen. Still she dances to the mystic lyrics of the world, golden lune of the sky…




Gold Rathian does not have too many new attacks, but can use every attack known to Rathian and Pink Rathian. What makes Gold Rathian unique is its faster attack speed, increased attack power, and its ability to freely combo any attack into any other attack, resulting in a myriad of different attack combinations, especially if rage mode, further contributing to its unpredictability.

Three-step Fireball: Gold Rathian will step back three times and spit a fireball each time, straight in front. It will often chain this directly into a backflip or a spinning backflip.

Breakable Parts

Gold Rathian shares the same breakable parts as Rathian and Pink Rathian.
