Barroth is a Brute Wyvern introduced in Monster Hunter 3.

Physiology

Barroth is a large, bipedal monster characteristic of the Brute Wyvern class. It is noted for the large crown structure atop its skull, which houses its nostrils. Its body is covered in rigid plates that help protect it from the harsh desert environment. Barroth possesses a pair of small red eyes and a mouthful with numerous long, peg-shaped teeth. 

Abilities

Barroth is capable of using its heavy head as a plow to smash through the environment, as well as cause damage to any living thing caught in its way. Because its nostrils are located on top of its head, Barroth can almost completely submerge itself in the cool mud during the scorching desert days. 

Behavior

It will occasionally roll in dirt and mud to cool off from the hot desert sun. Although docile by default, Barroth becomes extremely territorial when disturbed. It will release an initial warning roar. If that fails, it will continuously attack until the threat is exterminated. An insectivore, it is known to attack Altaroth nests in order to feast on the occupants inside. 

Habitat

Barroth is uniquely adapted to a hot desert lifestyle, and as such is almost exclusively found in locations that are such, like the Sandy Plains, Wildspire Waste, Dunes, and Trese Desert. Despite all this, they can on certain occasions be seen in cooler areas, like the Deserted Island.

Hunting Tips

If you get hit by the mud a Barroth flings around, you'll get muddy, which means any pro hunter should prioritize attacking the muddy parts of the monster to clean it off! Once you've got rid of all that mud, fighting it will be some good, clean fun!

Notes

General Notes

  • The inspiration for Barroth came from observing the "movement of bulldozers on a construction site". [1]
  • Barroth is the first Brute Wyvern encountered in Monster Hunter 3.
  • The Guild Sweetheart says that a blunt weapon, such as a Hammer, must be used to break off Barroth's head ridge. It's not required to use a Hammer in order to do so, but due to the fact that the head crest is hard bone, it's much easier with a Hammer. Hammers are the only weapons capable of not bouncing off Barroth's head if under blue sharpness (unless the Mind's Eye skill is activated, or the Hunter is using the Spirit Slash on a long sword). She may just be hinting to the player of this mechanic.
  • The Barroth is the only Monster in both Monster Hunter Tri and Monster Hunter Portable 3rd capable of inflicting "Muddy". In Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Rust Duramboros was introduced, which also has this ability.
  • When its head is broken while covered in mud, Barroth may drop a shiny in the same spot where its head piece falls. 
  • Barroth will throw fewer mud chunks when coated in less mud.
  • When low on stamina, Barroth's charges become much slower.
  • In the arena, Barroth can not regain its mud.
  • When Barroth is enraged, it moves faster. It also chains its bite with a charging bite, like how Great Wroggi and Great Baggi do.
  • When in the same area with a Great Jaggi, the Barroth will sometimes be attacked by the Great Jaggi and Jaggi.
  • Barroth's roar requires Earplugs to block.
  • Even though Barroth is not in Monster Hunter 4 (Ultimate), you can craft its equipment by trading Gypceros parts for Barroth parts at the Wyporium.
  • Barroth's name may come from the Spanish barro, meaning mud.

Monster Hunter 3

  • Barroth is sometimes summoned by Qurupeco. However, a Barroth can only be summoned in the quest "Hunter Killer".
  • Barroth is the first hunting quest monster whose roar will cause the hunter to temporarily cower.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

  • Barroth now takes more time to recover after a charge, even when enraged. However, it is now able to use a hipcheck, much like Uragaan and Deviljho.
  • Barroth is able fling mud behind him after a charge in G rank. However, it can't do this when low on stamina or when its head is broken.

Monster Hunter: World

  • While it uses hardened mud as armor, Barroth can also fling it off its body as an attack. Use water element weapons or your slinger to gradually knock off its mud.
  • Barroth's legs can now be wounded.
