Brute Tigrex features a darker, more muted color palette of various shades of grey, brown, and beige. It apparently possesses a more robust set of lungs than the common species, as evidenced by its increased roaring capacity. It has a more powerful set of forelimbs, and has adapted to live in harsher environments than any other variety of Tigrex.
Brute Tigrex is capable of using its powerful forelimbs to trample opponents, and can produce incredibly concussive roars which can send nearby objects flying.
This subspecies will exhibit similar behavior to its common counterpart, but it more brutal and aggressive when approaching and engaging prey and attackers alike.
Brute Tigrex is known to inhabit harsh environments such as Volcanoes and Deserts.

Monster Hunter Portable 3rd Notes:
- When the Brute Tigrex is low on Stamina, it stumbles and falls over whenever it tries to make an immediate second charge at the Hunter.
- Eating an Aptonoth, Slagtoth, or Rhenoplos helps the Brute Tigrex regain its Stamina. It may drop a shiny when it begins eating its prey.
- When enraged, some parts of its face and arms will become inflamed.
- During rage mode, when it jumps backward, its next attack would most probably be charging towards a player, stop in front of its current position and use Super Roar.
- The Brute Tigrex appears in a quest with the regular Tigrex in the Sandy Plains.
- Originally the name of this Subspecies was Black Tigrex

- In the Everwood, when it stands in a watery area, its rocks cause Waterblight.
- In G-rank, it no longer taunts after the Super Roar attack.
- When infected, Brute Tigrex can do its Super Roar twice in a row. It is also capable of running at the hunter and turning 4 times when infected.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Notes:
- Brute Tigrex can be found in the Guiding Lands by raising the Rotten region to level 6. Additionally, it will start appearing in investigations in the Elder's Recess after encountering it for the first time.
- Brute Tigrex can perform a tornado like roar similar to that of the Zenith Tigrex from the Frontier series. However in comparison, it only turns around at a 180 degree angle before finishing the attack.
