A fanged beast whose warm pelt and thick layers of fat help it survive in cold climates. It has exceptional hearing as well. It can glide swiftly on ice to sneak up on prey.

Lagombi is a Fanged Beast introduced in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd.

Physiology

A large, wombat-like Fanged Beast. Its ears are long and highly sensitive, and its face features a beak-like mouth along with small red eyes. A Lagombi's belly is made of a low-friction material and is shaped so that it can slide upon the ice like a sled. It is covered in a thick fur coat to keep it warm in its sub-zero homeland.

Abilities

A Lagombi has superb hearing in order to remain aware of predators. Fortunately for hunters, that also leaves it vulnerable to loud noises, such as Sonic Bombs (like Yian Kut-Ku). It attacks by throwing chunks of ice, swiping with its claws, and sliding around on its belly in order to ram foes. To traverse from area to area it slides on its belly much like a penguin. In Monster Hunter 4, Lagombi is given 2 new attacks, including a jump attack followed by a roll, and the ability to throw a chunk of ice straight up to hit climbing hunters.

Behavior

Lagombi is a relatively docile monster, but will respond with aggression when provoked or threatened. It is evidently an insectivore, as it enjoys feeding on Bnahabra.

Habitat

Lagombi has uniquely evolved to thrive in the icy environments of the Tundra and Frozen Seaway.

Etymology

The name Lagombi is derived from the Greek word for hare, "lagos". The "-mbi" was added by the localization team as a way to give the name a cuter sound.

Hunting Tips

A Lagombi has very sensitive hearing, and Sonic Bombs will cause it to flinch in pain. Time a well-aimed throw for when it's sliding around, and you may topple it. When enraged, however, Sonic Bombs have no effect on it.

  • If a hunter throws a Sonic Bomb while Lagombi is sliding, it will crash.

    • It'll try to slide away. Near the Bnahabra's nest, it'll dig up food that was safely hidden under the snow.
  • When weak, Lagombi will leave an area by limping, instead of sliding.
  • Its name has been based off of the Greek word for hare "lagos".

  • It will sleep in area 6 of the Tundra in order to recover health.
  • There is a download quest where players can hunt a mini Lagombi.
