Black Blight (Japanese: 黒の凶気 Kuro no kyōki, roughly "black miasma") is a mysterious dangerous state introduced in Monster Hunter Stories.
Black Blight can infect monsters, causing them to become more violent than usual. Monsters infected by this state have a purple aura around them and a darker color hue all over their body. As well as a monster's appearance changing, the Black Blight also causes the host to become physically stronger and more violent.
Cause of Black Blight
It is unknown what exactly causes this mysterious state, however, the Hunter's Guild and Royal Paleontology Scriveners have been studying. Some locals believe that the Legendary Black Dragon is the cause of this state, while others believe it is some kind of White Dragon corrupted by the Black Blight.
From monsters becoming violent due to the mysterious black mist, some villages have been completely destroyed due to the affects of the Black Blight.
Black Blight can be cured by using a kinship stone. These stones have a unique power that can purify an infected monster or even crystals infected by the Black Blight.
