Beasts known to dwell in humid forest and mountain regions. Though known more for fishing and standing upright to collect honey, their thick claws and heavy forearm plating allow them to deliver powerful blows to any aggressor.

Arzuros is a Fanged Beast introduced in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd.

Physiology

Arzuros is noted for its turquoise colored fur and ursine body structure. It has a ridge of erect hair aligned with its nose. Its back is made of a tough hide, somewhat characteristic of a carapace. Hair runs from its cheeks, connecting to its back, where it forms a trim along the sides of the back. The claws of an Arzuros have elongated, red nails. Each claw has a tough brace encasing and protecting the wrist and forearm. Arzuros has large, bulky legs connected to much smaller feet and a short, wide tail.

Abilities

Arzuros is armed with two vicious claws which it uses for most of its attacks. It can use its large body and surprising agility for charge attacks and pinning down prey.

Behavior

Arzuros are omnivorous creatures that enjoy feasting on fish and honey. When eating honey, Arzuros pays little to no attention to its surroundings. When threatened by other large monsters, Arzuros will try to use its size and claws to frighten the monster, or will use its agility to escape. Arzuros often hangs its tongue out of its mouth.

Habitat

Arzuros enjoys the lush environments of the Deserted Island and Misty Peaks, where it has access to piscine food sources and an abundance of honey.

Etymology

The name Arzuros is a combination of two words: "azure", which is a similar color to the monster's fur, and Latin word "ursus", which means bear.

Hunting Tips

Arzuros love honey so much that they may steal any you might be carrying and start to eat it on the spot, leaving them vulnerable. Carry around a stash of honey to take exploit their sweet tooth.

Notes

General Notes

  • Arzuros eats honey to recover Stamina.
    • Arzuros will not notice the player while it is eating honey.
    • Arzuros' tendency to eat or 'forage' in order to recover health is slightly higher than Lagombi's or Volvidon's.
  • Arzuros' signature move is a Pin Attack, similar to many of the other monsters. Failing to break free from the pin attack will result in Arzuros stealing Honey from the hunter and eating it (if the hunter has Honey in his/her inventory) and it will stun the hunter.
    • After the Arzuros pins the hunter down and steals Honey, there is a chance of it dropping a shiny that contains Honey, while he sits down to eat.
  • The shelling on its forelegs can be broken. Doing so will make it more likely to fall over after charging.
  • Arzuros is most vulnerable to the Fire Element on its head, body, and front legs. It is weakest to Ice on its hind legs and rear.
  • Throwing a Sonic Bomb, or detonating a Small/Large Barrel Bomb next to it, will startle Arzuros momentarily, but not when Arzuros is in rage mode. This will cause it to drop a shiny object.
  • Throwing a Dung Bomb at Arzuros will not only make it flee to another Area, but will also cause it to drop something shiny. This will only work once per hunt.
  • Trapping an Arzuros will cause it to drop a shiny object.
  • Even though Arzuros isn't in Monster Hunter 4, you can get its armor by trading Great Jaggi parts for Arzuros parts with the Wycoon.

Monster Hunter Portable 3rd Notes

  • Arzuros is the target of the first Yukumo Village Urgent Quest.
  • There's an Event Quest where players hunt a king-sized Arzuros boasting advanced stats.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Notes

  • The Arzuros can be hunted at night in the Moga Woods, only after achieving high rank and completing the 6* quest "Double Jeopardy".

Monster Hunter Generations Notes

  • When using its pin attack, Arzuros pauses for a moment and changes its direction before lunging.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate Notes

  • G-Rank Arzuros can perform Redhelm Arzuros's five-swipe combo attack.

Monster Hunter Rise Notes

  • Arzuros can appear in the rampage. It is considered a Stalker type.

Monster Hunter Explore Notes

  • Even with the game saying that Arzuros has the water element, it doesn't seems to use any elemental attack
