Hellblade Glavenus are Deviants of Glavenus introduced in Monster Hunter Generations.

MHXX-Hellblade Glavenus Render 001


Hellblade Glavenus resemble a large, enraged Glavenus. In comparison, they have a deep red coloration; their horns and dorsal spines are larger, and blood red in color, and their throat-situated flame sacs and bladelike tails either glow with heat or have a magma-like texture.


Hellblade Glavenus produce a highly explosive powder that they can use to enhance their explosive spit, coat their tails, or emit with some attacks.

General Notes

  • Hellblade Glavenus's throat and tail are always heated and it never gets tired.
  • Hellblade Glavenus has two different modes it constantly switches from both its head and tail. One mode uses Fire while the other uses Blast.
    • It will drop shinies if its throat or tail is staggered while in Blast mode.
    • Both the head and tail can be in completely different modes from each other.
  • While using Blast, many of Hellblade Glavenus's attacks send explosive powder at enemies while increasing the explosive radius and range of many tail-based attacks.
  • When entering one of its two different modes, Hellblade Glavenus will sharpen its tail in one of two particular ways.
    • The color of the tail and throat will also change to reflect it; the Fire mode resembles the normal Glavenus' appearance, and Blast mode has them surrounded by explosive powder and a magma-like appearance.
  • Hellblade Glavenus's roar requires HG Earplugs to block.
  • When Hellblade Glavenus's tail is in Blast mode, it can use its tailspin twice in a row.
    • The second spin has a slightly longer delay before being used.
  • G-Rank Hellblade Glavenus's delayed tail slam causes a massive explosion when its tail is in Blast mode.
