Brute Tigrex are Flying Wyverns and Subspecies of Tigrex introduced in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd.


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.

In-Game Description

Monster Hunter Portable 3rd
MHP3-Brute Tigrex Icon.png 性格はいたって凶暴で攻撃的なティガレックスの亜種。 発達した四肢を使っての突進、強力な爪と顎の一撃、どれも恐ろしい威力で注意が必要。
Monster Hunter 4
MH4U-Brute Tigrex Icon.png ”黒轟竜”と呼ばれるティガレックスの亜種。黒い甲殻を持つ。 火山地帯を好む傾向があるが、通常種同様広い範囲でも目撃されている。 強烈な咆哮は轟竜の特徴であるが、黒轟竜のそれはさらに強力で、渾身の咆哮は広範囲に衝撃を及ぼす。 非常に凶暴、かつ食欲旺盛。
Threat Level (危険度): ★★★★★
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
MH4U-Brute Tigrex Icon.png A subspecies of Tigrex, these beasts are as brutal as they are ravenous. They prefer volcanic regions, but can be found in a range of areas. Their howls are even more piercing than standard Tigrex roars and send shockwaves far and wide.
Threat Level (危険度): ★★★★★
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne
MHWI-Brute Tigrex Icon.png Blackish brown scales and a stronger roar set this Tigrex subspecies apart. Extremely aggressive, even by Tigrex standards.
Monster Hunter Stories
MHST-Brute Tigrex Icon.png A black Tigrex subspecies. The force and range of its howl is even more fearsome than that of its cousins.

General Notes:

  • Despite its name being Brute Tigrex, it doesn't have any relation with the Brute Wyvern Monster Type.
  • Brute Tigrex shares its music theme with Tigrex.
  • Brute Tigrex's roar requires HG Earplugs to block and causes damage to hunters.
  • In one of Capcom's official artbooks, Hunter Encyclopedia 2 (released in 2006), there is a Tigrex-like wyvern bearing a similar palette of colors:
  • There are two more of these in the 2008 Monster Hunter Illustrations artbook, one of the extinct Wyvernrex, the ancestor of all flying wyverns and one less dark-colored Tigrex-like wyvern:

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

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Notes:

  • Brute Tigrex can be infected by the Frenzy Virus.
  • 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.
  • The quest details of the G2 Quest, Advanced: A Black Day, erroneously call Brute Tigrex "Black Tigrex".

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.
