Ahtal-Ka are Neopterons introduced in Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.


Ahtal-Ka is a large insect-like monster. It somewhat resembles a devil's flower mantis in appearance and the color scheme is similar to that of a classical Egyptian Pharaoh. It looks like an insectoid sphinx. The majority of the body is golden. It has six limbs, each of which are yellow with a set of purple triangles beneath them. There are four "legs" and two "claws"; at the end of the "legs" are small claws/talons while the "claws" have elaborate wing like extensions at the base and have a pair of large hooks at the ends. The Ahtal-Ka has a large headpiece that has alternating gold and blue lines like those on a Pharaoh's crown. It has a pair of purple eyes, each with a minuscule black pupil (much like a mantis).

Its "walking fortress'", the Empress' Throne is a towering war machine crudely assembled from scrap metal, debris from ruins, and the Ahtal-Ka's own silk. It is quadrupedal in structure, with a "head" vaguely reminiscent of a wyvern's and a tail tipped with metal spikes. The Ahtal-Ka's silk is visible through gaps in the joints and armor plating, and allows the Ahtal-Ka to control the movement of its creation like a marionette. While controlling the Empress' Throne, the Ahtal-Ka itself is covered in a silken cocoon hidden in the "chest" of the machine.
