Kulu-Ya-Ku are Bird Wyverns first introduced in Monster Hunter: World. They can be found in the Ancient Forest and Wildspire Waste. These odd monsters developed limbs that are capable of carrying weapons. Their materials can be used to craft high-affinity raw/sleep weapons and the Kulu Armor Sets.



Physiology

Kulu-Ya-Ku has a body shape similar to other raptorial Bird Wyverns, such as Velocidrome. This monster is covered in light brown scales and has a face that greatly resembles a Dodo. Though it is mostly covered in scales, it also has feathers on its head and arms.

Behavior and Abilities

Kulu-Ya-Ku is able to pick up small boulders and use them to protect itself from incoming attacks. It can also toss said boulders at foes from a distance or use a jumping slam to inflict stun. They are commonly spotted stealing eggs from Monster nests, especially those of the Rathian. By using the Slinger, hunters can easily knock rocks out of the Kulu-Ya-Ku's hands.[1] Hunters can also break the rock by hitting it multiple times with their weapon. Master-Rank Kulu-Ya-Ku may sometimes pick up an explosive rock instead, adding a small area-of-effect to its attacks. Kulu-Ya-Ku's head and arms can be wounded.

In Master Rank, Kulu-Ya-Ku gain the ability to dig up and use ore chunks instead of rock which inflict more damage and stun hunters more easily. Part-breaking their front limbs disables their ore chunk usage and the Kulu-Ya-Ku will resort to using rocks like in Low and High Rank.

Unlike other raptorial bird wyverns, Kulu-Ya-Ku are very docile and calm when coming into contact with hunters. If attacked, however, they will fight back.
