Arbiter Estrellians resemble their relatives, Estrellians and Doom Estrellians, in body structure, but has a black slight dark brownish ash color on the top its neck through tail. It has a darker scale tone on the shoulders and upper legs while the front legs have a grayish color as well as its hind legs, but with a darker tone. Instead of orange scales on its face, Arbiter Estrellian has black scales with three pair of uneven red feather-like spikes on its lower pale jaw.
Like the other Estrellians, it has long fiery antennae, a pair of large white slight curved horn on its cheeks, a pair of antlers that is black and larger than its relative. Its frilled ears are red instead slightly light brown like its relative.
In its armored state, like Estrellians, Arbiter Estrellians has a spiky armor which covered its head, neck, wrists, shoulders, back, upper hind legs, and tail. Instead of a fiery orange, its spiked armor is gray in color and they are actually encrusted Destruction Star Butterflies.
In its final charged state, the butterflies Arbiter Estrellians used to armor itself becomes active, much like it's relatives. While in this state, an Arbiter Estrellian's neck, body, wrists, and tail protrudes the fiery-red wings of it's butterflies.
Unlike it's relatives, Arbiter Estrellians begin hunts in their armored state, and their bodies will always be protected by it's butterflies until death.
Although an Arbiter Estrellian's armored state is noticeably more limited then it's relatives' versions, lacking the ability to perform backflip attacks or launch it's butterflies as projectiles, it compensates for this hindrance with it's destructive final charge state. When an Arbiter Estrellian enters it's final charged state, not only does the monster power and speed increase, but many of it's melee attacks gain the ability to steal Hunter Art energy, while all of it's ranged attacks utilizes the Dragon Element and inflicts Dragonblight.
Arbiter Estrellians commands Destruction Star Butterflies. Unlike their fiery cousins utilized by other Estrellian species, these variants instead inflict Dragonblight upon detonation, and Arbiter Estrellians are capable of instantly commanding these butterflies to charge their enemies without walking first. Arbiter Estrellians are also capable of detonating their butterflies with their own attacks, however, this can be prevented if all of an Arbiter Estrellians' active Destruction Star Butterflies are killed by something else.
Arbiter Estrellians might be active predators due to it being in its armored state when encountered by hunters. Strangely, It will actively hunt its relatives to either kill them or driving them out of its territory. Interesting enough, after it eliminated its relatives, some kind of natural disaster happens in Arbiter Estrellian's territory, which gives it the nickname, Creator of Natural Disasters.
Its nickname suggested it might be the strongest Estrellian out there.
Like its relative, Doom Estrellian, it lives in the Moonlands and Ancestral Tomb.

- An Arbiter Estrellian's head, each front leg, torso and tail can be broken, and its tail can be severed.
- Its only possible to break any of Arbiter Estrellians' parts while it's enraged.
- The majority of an Arbiter Estrellians' physical attacks will cause Hunter Art gauges to drop significantly.
- The gauges will still drop even if Arts are already fully charged.
- Mechanically, Arbiter Estrellians' final charged state is treated as an Rage state. This means that Arbiter Estrellian will only enter this state after taking a significant amount of damage, and that this state activates hunter skills such as Challenger and Fighter.
- Unlike Estrellians and Doom Estrellians, who order all of their butterflies to charge a hunter at once, Arbiter Estrellians will only order one of it's butterflies to perform this suicidal attack, while allowing the other butterflies to continue with other tasks, such as distracting the hunter or protecting the Arbiter Estrellian.
- In G2-Rank and onwards, right before they exit their enraged state, Arbiter Estrellians will curl up their bodies before releasing an destructive wave of dragon energy. This attack is extremely powerful, and it is advised to avoid this attack at all cost.
