Fiercewater Nargacuga are Special Species of Nargacuga introduced in Monster Hunter Explore.


They have primarily deep blue fur with a small gray tuft on their backs with orange underbellies and mostly dark gray limbs, they also have white tipped ears and dark grey beaks. Their arms have a few sandy beige spikes on them and their wing blades are larger and segmented into sharp vent like structures with sandy beige spikes and blades of the same color on the ends, they also have light blue membranes with white edges connecting them. Their tails also split apart near the end with sandy beige sword-like blades with a few nozzel-like openings on the ends between where it splits.


Fiercewater Nargacuga share the extreme agility and strength of normal Nargacuga but are more adept at throwing their tail spines, being able to throw several clumps straight forward in a line compared to throwing them forward in a spread shot. With the amount of water stored in their bodies their wing slashes have larger hitboxes due to the water spraying out of them, and a slam of their tails create water splashes as big as they are.


Fiercewater Nargacuga retain the cunning and aggressive behavior of normal Nargacuga, though to a higher degree on the aggression.


Its only known habitat is the Deserted Island.
