When this huge Bird Wyvern stands on one leg, its peculiar collar gives it the appearance of a monstrous parasol. It is fiercely territorial, and whenever it finds intruders, it spreads its wings and unfolds the eye-like crest on its head to terrifying effect.


Aknosom is a Bird Wyvern first introduced in Monster Hunter Rise.

Physiology

Aknosom is crane-like in appearance. It has a large red and gold parasol-like collar around its head, and this same coloration can be found on its wings and on its eye-like head-crest, which can be used for intimidation. It has a long beak and yellow eyes. Its feathers are white, and it has long narrow legs. Its tail also ends in a peculiar hook-like shape. Aknosom is capable of standing on one leg.

Behavior and Abilities

Aknosom is said to be very territorial, and will try to scare any intruders away by displaying its crest.

Aknosom is capable of using its collar as a defensive shield or a bludgeoning weapon by fanning it out. It will try and intimidate opponents using its collars and their head crests. Its beak is tough enough to be stabbed into the ground with considerable force without sustaining damage. It is able to spit small fireballs as well, which bounce across the ground and leave small patches of flames behind. It is also capable of rushing at very high speed, and using its wings to swipe at enemies.
