Great Girros is a Fanged Wyvern first introduced in Monster Hunter: World. This monster scavenges for meals dropped from the Coral Highlands. It acts as the alpha leader of a Girros pack, and sports giant fangs that paralyze its prey. Their materials can be used to craft paralysis weapons and the Girros armor sets.

Appearance

Great Girros' head greatly resembles a cobra in appearance though it walks on all fours like a monitor. It is covered in black onyx scales and has yellow stripes running down the back of its neck. On the side of its neck is a hood with red gill-like organs. The head and forelegs of the Great Girros can be wounded, and the tail can be severed.

Behavior and Abilities

Great Girros has large fangs filled with a paralyzing venom. It only takes a single bite from these fangs to paralyze prey as big as Radobaan[1]. It can also spit a yellow fluid from its mouth that can paralyze opponents. Great Girros also possesses the ability to call Girros during a fight to swarm its prey with a barrage of paralyzing bites. If a Great Girros' hood is damaged it loses the ability to command or call regular Girros' aids. Strangely, Great Girros is weak to the Water element, but is immune to the Thunder element, whereas the regular Girros are weak to Thunder and immune to Water.

Great Girros is an active scavenger that is constantly looking for new corpses to feed on. Great Girros is also surprisingly aggressive as it will attack any monster alongside the swarm of Girros, including Odogaron, who is the Apex Monster of the Rotten Vale, but is easily overpowered when Odogaron is freed from the paralyzing effect[2].
