Somnacanth is a leviathan type monster which was first introduced in Monster Hunter Rise. This monster has a major weakness to Thunder. Somnacanths main form of defense is its breathing attacks, as getting caught by it can cause you to fall asleep for a short period of time. For an in-depth strategy to tackling Somnacanth, refer to our separate Somnacanth page.
