This creature usually keeps to itself deep in the mountains, but recently it has been approaching human habitation and attacking hunters, perhaps because of the Rampage. It's adept at using mud to attack, and even defends itself by sticking it on its body. From its tail oozes a strange golden fluid, which it uses to dissolve the ground beneath its prey, arresting them in a mire so that it can drag them under.


Almudron is a Leviathan first introduced in Monster Hunter Rise.

Appearance

Almudron is a massive Leviathan found in bogged areas. Both the dorsal side of its body and its legs are covered by a gray-colored shell with some darker highlights. The shell forms two ridges on its neck reminiscent of Lagiacrus's hood. Four more of these ridges adorn the body, running right to the tip of its tail. Almudron has scaly skin ranging in color from gray to creamy yellow to pinkish red. Its underbelly is covered in wide, pinkish scales. Almudron's head features some mammalian-like traits, sporting a short snout, a pair of red eyes, and several whisker-like tendrils. Similar to Mizutsune, it has massive, curved claws on its front legs, which have five digits, while the claws on the hind legs are smaller. The most prominent trait of Almudron is its massive tail that spans about half of the Leviathan's entire length. At the end of the tail are several feather-like appendages that it can utilize for attacking foes with mud.

Behavior and Abilities

Almudron is said to normally live deep in mountains. However, maybe due to the influence of the Rampage, it has been approaching human settlements and attacking hunters as of late.

It is capable of using mud to attack, creating a massive mud wave from swiping its tail. It is also capable of digging into the muddy soil and bursting out, reaching great heights as it does so. Almudron can also create massive mud walls and mud piles, which it can use to trap or block off prey and foes alike. Such a feat is achievable due to the golden fluid it secretes from the tail, which dissolve soil into a muddy mire. Any hunters who get stuck in the golden mud will have their health drained.

In-Game Description

Monster Hunter Rise
MHRise-Almudron Icon.png As its name implies, Almudron spends a great deal of time lurking in mud - at least until it emerges to smother approaching prey. From its tail oozes a strange golden fluid, which Almudron uses to dissolve the ground beneath its prey, arresting them in a mire so that it can drag them under. When enraged, it produces more fluid, turning the mud golden. When you see gold, watch out!

Hunting Tips

The mud-covered tail is what makes this species strong; attacking this outer layer will chip away at it, so removing this muddy shroud should be your priority. The gold-glimmering mud is harmful to the touch, so mind the color of your surroundings while hunting these beasts.
