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 the Kulu Armor Set.
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. 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. Hunters can also break the rock by hitting it multiple times with their weapon. Kulu-Ya-Ku's head and arms can be wounded.
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.
