Black Gravios are Flying Wyverns and a Subspecies of Gravios introduced in Monster Hunter G.


Black Gravios is covered in a black hide with red spines. They are larger and heavier than the common Gravios.


Black Gravios is more proficient in the use of its heat beam, thanks to its sturdier body.


Far more aggressive than its grey counterpart, the Black Gravios will attack on sight. It will more commonly expel explosive gas than sleep gas.


Black Gravios are known to inhabit swamps and volcanoes, where ore deposits are abundant. However they can also inhabit forests like the Everwood.

Hard Core (HC) Black Gravios

Much like HC Gravios appears to just be a older version of standard Gravios, the same goes for HC Black Gravios. Though unlike normal HC Gravios the insides of this monster are burning hot like magma to the bone and it needs to vent heat more often to keep its temperature in check.

It has all the attacks of normal HC Gravios and uses the super beam attack more often along with new attacks. New attacks include making use of the pores on its tail to release flaming hot gas and sleep gas in a tail slam attack and the amazing ability to keep its self in the air while flying using its beam aimed straight down like a rocket to keep its self in the air while spinning, ending with a body slam and releasing the heat from the ground that it beamed as magma from burning the ground. This odd ability makes it the only Gravios variation that actually uses its wings for an actual flying attack instead of a jump smash.
