Howling Zinogre are Extreme Individuals of Zinogre introduced in Monster Hunter Frontier G9.1.

Physiology

Howling Zinogre greatly resembles the standard species, being a quadrupedal creature with lupine like traits. But with many visible differences. Howling Zinogre have mostly white scales with patches of dark grey and black, with brown feet, spikes, horns (which are also larger), and plates. There are also a line of light green scales running alongside the backplates on each side of the body, and black claws. Notably there are numerous extra and larger plates present on the forelimbs, with large tufts of fur sprouting behind them. For the whole battle until its death Howling Zinogre will appear charged with electricity, gaining the standard physical changes, glowing blue vein marks, azure colored claws, a white electrical aura on its back, and blue glowing marks on the large plates (though unlike most other Zinogre's, the plates are stood up at all times, even after death). Similarly to Thunderlord Zinogre, Howling Zinoge also has an "Ultra Charged State" it can enter by using a certain move a few times. In this state the electrical aura is even larger, with green and blue colors mixed in with the white, along with a swarm of Fulgur Bugs flying around it.

Abilities

Howling Zinogre lack some of the attacks that the standard Zinogre have in Frontier, but have many new ones as compensation. Such as slamming its large horns into the ground, sending three small shockwaves forward, then jumping back and doing it again but harder with larger waves with electricity mingled in, before charging forward at such a speed it briefly vanishes from sight perception and while doing this it will leave a bunch of Fulgur Bugs on the ground behind it, which will have lightning rain on their location after a few seconds, the Fanged Wyvern perform a sort of "uppercut" into the air before landing with a powerful crash, there is also a variation of this move where instead of doing the "uppercut" at the end, it will stop moving after the lighning fast lunge, and will howl making thunder rain on the spots where the bugs were. There's also a tail sweep that sends out a circle of Fulgur Bug swarms, and most notably, shaking off a bunch of Fulgur Bugs, causing them to make a sort of huge electrical spherical cage in a wide area around Howling Zinogre (with a "safe" zone within the walls), which will shortly after proceed to jump and slam into the ground twice creating electrical blasts around it in the process with each, it will then proceed to howl causing the cage to burst alongside sending charged pieces of rubble into the air, which will then rain down and create small bursts of electricity upon landing.

Behavior

Howling Zinogre retain the solitary, territorial and aggressive behavior of the standard species.

Habitat

Howling Zinogre have been found inhabiting the Great Forest Peak alongside the Historical Site.
