This quest tasks you with hunting down a Black Diablos, which is a somewhat stronger variant of the Diablos. Despite that, the moveset is the same, and the Black Diablos inhabits in the same environs and exhibits the same behaviors, so there’s not much to say about this monster that didn’t already apply to the normal Diablos. Both lair in AREAS 13 and 14, but will venture up to AREA 8 and AREA 6 if provoked. Both are accomplished borrowers and love to charge… the only difference in their attacks is how much you’ll be punished if you let them hit you.

Hunt - Black Diablos

Like the normal Diablos, the Black Diablos’ resistance to damage depends on damage type and body part struck, with the head, wings and belly being weakest to damage, albeit not equally so. The Black Diablos’ head is weakest to blunt, the belly is weak to cut and blunt and the wings are weak to ammo damage. The elemental resistances are largely the same, but with one glaring difference - the Black Diablos isn’t the least bit concerned by Dragon damage. Its tail is severable, and its horns can be broken off, giving you a shot at a Diablos Tailcase and a Black Spiral Horn+, respectively. It, too, is weak to Paralysis.
