A monster with a distinctive tail. While it is omnivorous, it has a preference for fruit, and keeps various fruits with all kinds of effects in its belly pouch. An incredibly curious beast, it enjoys playing tricks on people, and has been seen to bat fruit at its prey using its tail.


Bishaten is a Fanged Beast first introduced in Monster Hunter Rise.

Appearance

Bishaten is a Fanged Beast with an odd body shape. Its body is covered mainly in cream-colored fur, while its arms and legs are covered in blue fur. Similar to Kecha Wacha, Bishaten has patagia on its arms, supported by a single wing finger and covered by cyan-colored feathers, effectively forming wings that it can glide around with. Its arms end in five digits, one being the wing finger, the other four being short fingers with black claws. It also has an opposable thumb. Its legs, however, only have three digits end in similar claws. However, the most peculiar feature of Bishaten is its "fifth limb". Bishaten has a very strong tail that can support its own weight, similar to Great Maccao and Somnacanth. Its tail also ends in a "hand" with five "digits". The center lobe is the biggest with two smaller lobes on each side. The tail hand is partly covered in hard shells. On the belly is a pouch that Bishaten uses to store large amounts of fruits of various kinds. Over the legs is a long patch of white fur that turns to brown at the edge shaped like a smaller pair of wings or bird tail. Bishaten has an odd face, having a large, bony protrusion between its eyes and a smaller one on its forehead. Interestingly, both of its jaws have a bony, beak-like protrusion at the front, which the one on the top jaw also has nostril openings. It also has large ears. Covering its neck is a mane of blue and white fur.

Behavior and Abilities

Bishaten is omnivorous, but it has a preference for fruits. It tends to keep large amounts of various fruits within its belly pouch. Bishaten, similarly to Kecha Wacha, is a very curious monster, and often enjoys playing pranks and tricks on people or preys alike.

Bishaten is incredibly acrobatic, capable of performing several moves involving spinning its whole body. It is capable of standing on its tail for a very long time and uses its tail to attack or throw a fruit at its enemies. It can also use its tail to swing the whole body while the tail hand firmly gripping onto a surface. As well as this, it can use its wings to glide forward at opponents. In addition to this, it can throw fruits in its belly pouch as a means to attack its adversaries if needed. It is capable of both poisoning and stunning its opponents by using different kinds of fruit.

Hunting Tips

Its varied tail attacks are incredibly powerful, and sometimes it spins in place around like a top, so avoiding damage can be tough. But, if you use that chance to attack, the beast will drop its fruit, and you can pick it up and throw it back, aiding your hunt. Watch its movements carefully to find your opening.

Notes

  • It is possible that Bishaten's name is a mix-matched version of the Shibaten, a riverbank-dwelling variety of tengu.
  • Bishaten is based off of the Tengu yokai from Japanese folklore.[2]
  • Bishaten's persimmon-tossing attacks are inspired by the Japanese folktale, "The Crab and The Monkey" (さるかに合戦), where the monkey attacks the crab by throwing persimmons at it.[3]
  • Bishaten was originally teased by Ichinose on the official Monster Hunter Twitter.[4]
