In-Game Information

MH4-Brute Tigrex Icon
"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."


  • Order: Saurischia
  • Suborder: Wyvern Feet
  • Family: Rex

The Brute Tigrex is a Flying Wyvern. Its closest relatives are Tigrex, Molten Tigrex, Dyuragaua, and Mi Ru.

Habitat Range

Brute Tigrex have been seen in the Volcano (3rd), Volcanic Hollow, Sandy Plains, EverwoodDunes and Primal Forest

Ecological Niche

Brute Tigrex's role as a top predator is no different than that of Tigrex. It may hunt Rhenoplos, Volvidon, Slagtoth, Uroktor, and the Wroggi and Great Wroggi that live in the lower levels of the volcano. Brute Tigrex are also well known to attack other Tigrex on sight.

Biological Adaptations

Just as Tigrex has coloration suited to both sandy deserts and freezing snowy landscape, the Brute Tigrex has just the right coloration to blend in with the volcano's cliffs and crevices. It is confirmed that this altered coloration is the result of extreme heat causing volcanic ash, and other such impurities, fusing to this Tigrex's shell. These impurities have made Brute Tigrex's hide stronger, while also giving it better resistance to the Thunder Element. Due to living in the harsher volcano, Brute Tigrex's roar has become stronger compared to a normal Tigrex. This is due to the Brute Tigrex's roar not easily being heard in the harsher volcanic environments.


Brute Tigrex appear much more aggressive and more maniacal in attacking in comparison to Tigrex. Brute Tigrex has been found to have a high metabolism, which could explain its aggressive nature.
