Jyuratodus are Piscine Wyverns first introduced in Monster Hunter: World.

Appearance

Jyuratodus is related to Lavasioth, and as such resembles a bipedal coelacanth fish. It has two dorsal fins, two pectoral fins, two pelvic fins, and a long, thick tail. Instead of Lavasioth's hardened lava covering, Jyuratodus covers itself in mud and sludge. Jyuratodus's head, body, legs and tail can be wounded.

Behavior and Abilities

Jyuratodus is able to cover its body in mud for protection, and spits a watery sludge that can temporarily trap hunters to defend itself. Jyuratodus leaves behind solid mud piles when it swims, which hunters can use as platforms to avoid being slowed down by the swamp water.[1] Much like Barroth, Jyuratodus will roll mud in order to cover its body in it. [2] The mud will protect Jyuratodus's body parts from physical damage as well as defend against its primary elemental weakness, Thunder.

Jyuratodus is known to clash with Barroth, as the two share the same muddy habitats. During a Turf War, Jyuratodus will ambush Barroth from below and attempt to constrict and bite the brute wyvern, only to be thrown violently to the ground afterward, resulting in both monsters taking damage and Jyuratodus being knocked over briefly. When left undisturbed, Jyuratodus won't bother anything within their territory, such as the Gajau it shares the lower end of the swamp with. Once disturbed, however, Jyuratodus will turn aggressive and try to injure threats.
