Acidic Glavenus is a Subspecies of Glavenus first introduced in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne.


Physiology

Acidic Glavenus' body is a variety of emerald and blue shades, with dark grey spikes and horns. Its tail is usually covered in yellow crystals, which, when scraped off reveal a dull blue, katana-like blade. Its eyes are dark red.

Behavior and Abilities

Acidic Glavenus has greater control over its tail attacks than the standard Glavenus due to its lighter tail, and subsequently uses more precise tail slashes and jabs in addition to wider slashes. When covered in the acidic crystals, its tail is heavier and thus Acidic Glavenus behaves more like the ordinary species. The acid on its tail is highly corrosive and can cause Defense Down on contact.
