Ashen Lao-Shan Lung are Elder Dragons introduced in Monster Hunter G.


Despite its reputation as a Subspecies, Ashen Lao-Shan Lung is actually a regular Lao-Shan Lung which has been exposed to many years of volcanic debris. As a result, its carapace is highly discolored, taking on a muted grey-blue color.


They retain the city crushing strength of normal Lao-Shan Lung however their bodies are much harder to penetrate due to the ash and soot solidifying their bodies.


Ashen Lao-Shan Lung is extremely docile, only directly attacking creatures that disrupt its feeding. The creature often takes little notice of hunters, but will destroy any structure which stands in its way.


A nomadic monster, Ashen Lao-Shan Lung has no fixed habitat. It is generally only seen by hunters when it attacks the Fortress.

General Notes

  • Unusually, Ashen Lao-Shan Lung has a different introductory cutscene to its ordinary counterpart (most Subspecies have no introductory cutscene at all).
  • Ashen Lao-Shan Lung, as with Lao-Shan Lung, can be both slain and repelled.
  • Fire Element weapons are a reasonable alternative to Dragon-Element ones, although they are marginally less effective.
  • Ashen Lao-Shan Lung's roar requires HG earplugs to block.
