In-Game Information

MH4U-Dah'ren Mohran Icon
Colossal elder dragons that swim through the Great Desert, smashing obstacles with their spiral horns. Their unique color comes from the thick layer of oxidized metals and other rare minerals that lodge in their hides over their long lives.


  • Order: Elder Dragon
  • Suborder: Mine Dragon
  • Family: Dah'ren

The Dah'ren Mohran are sand swimming Elder Dragons that are closely related to the Jhen Mohran.

Habitat Range

Dah'ren Mohran live within the exspansive and barren Great Desert. They are known to attack towns such as Val Habar and Dundorma.

Ecological Niche

An adult Dah'ren Mohran is at the top of the food chain in the Great Desert. Like the Jhen Mohran, these Elder Dragons use their massive mouths to filter in any type of nutrients found within the sands. 

Biological Adaptations

A fully grown Dah'ren Mohran can grow up to 11446.5cm long, even longer than a Jhen Mohran. Unlike the Jhen Mohran, that have two massive tusks, the Dah'ren Mohran have only a titanic singular horn. They use this horn for obliterating any objects that are in the way while swimming through the sand. The horn of a Dah'ren Mohran is also used as a drill when the creature spins its body in a spiral-like motion. Over the years, the horn will harden in an extraordinary fashion and will become powerful enough to pierce through any substance. Due to swimming in the desert sands all their lives, many different types of minerals and ores have formed onto the Elder Dragon's body. The ores and minerals give a Dah'ren Mohran's scales their rusty reddish coloration. Dah'ren Mohran have a blowhole, similar to whales. This blowhole is used to expel minerals from outside their body along with shoot large clumps of sand from their body. These clumps can be used as projectiles against predators and ships if Dah'ren Mohran is threatened.


Dah'ren Mohran are a lot more aggressive than Jhen Mohran. They are actively aggressive and will attempt to kill anything that threatens their life. Dah'ren Mohran are even willing to destroy whole towns if attacked by sand ships.
