MHW-Bazelgeuse Render 001


Bazelgeuse is a large Flying Wyvern covered in thick, heavy scales with a bronzy sheen. It has a bulky upper body and a large wingspan. Its underside is lined with protruding scales which are easily shed. The monster occasionally enters a "superheated" state, causing the gaps between its scales to glow red hot.


Bazelgeuse uses its scales offensively during combat. It is capable of dislodging them at will from its body and quickly replacing them. Once dislodged, the scales violently explode, causing concussive damage to all foes nearby. However Bazelgeuse can also send out scales that drop on the field which will act similar to small mines, and will explode when attacked or when their owner slams its huge body against them. Bazelgeuse is capable of releasing a short-range blast of fire from its mouth, and will produce ear-piercing roars and bellows to disrupt its opponent. Its sturdy, muscular stature allows it to tackle and batter other monsters into submission.


Like most apex-level monsters, Bazelgeuse rules its territory with an iron fist. It will become hostile to any hunter or monster that crosses its path in order to assert its dominance. Endlessly aggressive, it will even actively seek out targets to battle with, and is generally assured victory when doing so.


Bazelgeuse is a nomadic predator, and can be found in all known areas across the New World. It often asserts itself as the apex monster in whatever environment it arrives in. Recently it's nomadic like behavior has been challenged by the powerful and deadly Deviljho of which it will readily meet in combat.
