Garangolm is a gigantic Fanged Beast similar in appearance to a gorilla. The dorsal side is covered in thick, rigid green and brown thick shell, and its head is protected by the same shell, forming a giant crown and chin plate. Curiously, Garangolm has a thick, long tail that ends in prongs.
Behavior and Abilities
Aside from its incredible strength and hard body, Garangolm emits a sap-like fluid from its body that promotes plant growth. This causes various plants to grow all over its body. It can also use the sap it emits to harden its body or the soil around it. When enraged, Garangolm will thrust its arms into the earth to form gauntlet-like masses, semi-molten rock on it's right arm whilst its left will be covered in mossy growths that drip water, dealing Fireblight and Waterblight respectively. The explosion from the right arm can send Garangolm high into the air, and sometimes also leave behind Blast clouds. Once its health drops below a certain threshold, it will cover both arms with larger quantities of molten rock and moss, while also getting some on its face. During this time it gains a couple of new attacks, including the ability to cause a steam explosion in front of itself after attempting to send hunters skyward with a head swing.
Garangolm are rather peaceful and docile creatures that are usually seen sleeping or traveling around its territory. However, it will turn hostile the moment it gets attacked or provoked. The more angry Garangolm gets, the stronger it becomes. It won't stop until the foe is dead or its rage is settled. Often, Garangolm will have to deal with powerful monsters like Lunagaron for territories, often resulting in Turf Wars.
