Shogun Ceanataur is a Carapaceon and is thus essentially a gigantic, oversized crab. Unlike Daimyo Hermitaur, Shogun is more aggressive and has claws that are much longer and sharper. When in rage mode, Shogun's samurai-like claws can cause Bleeding . That's right, it's not just a Seregios thing anymore. Either you must crouch (press B while standing still) for a few seconds, eat a Well-done Steak , or eat a Mosswine Steak . Eating a Mosswine Steak is the fastest since it is consumed with the animation of a drink (like a Potion).

Shogun is weakest to Thunder and Ice .

Attack Explanation
Keep Away Shogun will dig its claws into the ground and then push dirt in your face, clawing at you in the process.
Claw Swipe Shogun will do a small claw swipe as it scuttles towards you (usually sideways). Due to the length of its claws, this attack has a lot of reach. Knocks you on your butt.
180 Claw Swipe Shogun will swing its claws in a 180 degree arc. The range on this attack is absolutely enormous since Shogun's claws are really long, so be careful!
Big Hug Shogun will extend its claws outwards, then lunge forward to try and hug you. Don't fall for it!
Water Gun Shogun will spit water out at you.
Burrow Shogun will burrow into the ground and then periodically burst from below intending on goring you with its shell. It will do so five times before finally resurfacing. Sometimes its burst locations are completely random, and other times it hones in on a target (usually you).
Ceiling Drop Shogun will often frequent ceilings if it's in a cave area (such as Marshlands), and what better time to drop down to the ground than to drop down on your face?
Breakable Parts Reward
Shell (twice)
Claws (both)
