The alpha Izuchi of its pack, identified by its larger build, upended white fur and scythe-like tail. A Great Izuchi forms a herd of many smaller Izuchi and selects two from the group to accompany it on territory patrols. Once it spots prey or senses danger, the Great Izuchi issues commands to their fellow Izuchi, and coordinates their movements. Take care that you don't get overwhelmed.


Great Izuchi is a Bird Wyvern first introduced in Monster Hunter Rise.

Appearance

Great Izuchi is covered in short orange fur throughout the body with some patches of white fur on the head, base of the neck, back, and tail. Under the fur is cream-colored scales that become dark indigo toward the arms and legs. It has a long and slender snout, with cobra-like fangs on the top and bottom jaw, and orange eyes with very narrow pupils. Its underbelly is clad in large gray plating with smaller plating lining the back. The arms have three digits with the middle finger elongated, becoming hook-like. The most distinctive feature is its tail, which ends in a bony, scythe-like blade that it uses primarily for attacking. The scythe is very sharp, capable of slicing through several bamboo stalks in a single strike.

Behavior and Abilities

A species of Bird Wyvern that travels in a pack of at least three at all times. The Great Izuchi is very intelligent even for Bird Wyvern standards and is very cooperative, as it can command its two companions, which are the sharpest individuals in the pack, to perform many combination attacks alongside it using their scythe-like tails in combination, simultaneously or consecutively. It is also very agile, capable of back flipping or swinging its whole body around several times with ease. It is capable of regurgitating what seems to be rocks and pebbles at its adversaries, an ability shared by the smaller Izuchi as well, however Great Izuchi can spit greatly further compared to an Izuchi.

Hunting Tips

Their razor-sharp tail attacks in combination with their synchronicity make them a force to be reckoned with. Take out their leader to send the herd into disarray and pick them off easily.

Notes

  • Great Izuchi and its pack are based off of the Kamaitachi yokai from Japanese folklore, though they were made raptor-like monsters to match Monster Hunter's world.[2]
  • Great Izuchi's mouth is based off the Slit-mouthed woman (口裂け女 : Kuchisake-onna) as mentioned in one of the Illustration notes. [3]
  • Great Izuchi can appear in the rampage. It is considered a Stalker type.

Trivia

  • Great Izuchi is the first pack-leader monster in the main series whose Japanese name begins with "オサ (Osa)" instead of "ドス (Dosu).
