Legiana are Flying Wyverns first introduced in Monster Hunter: World. Legiana is known to live in the highest peaks of the Coral Highlands. It is an apex predator there, hunting prey of all shapes and sizes from the skies. It emits a chilling wind from its body, which dulls its prey's ability to escape. Their materials can be used to craft the Legiana Armor Sets and Ice Element weapons.


Physiology

Legiana is a slim, primarily beige-colored Flying Wyvern characterized by its leaf-like wingtips and striped skin patterns. Legiana's head is topped with a pair of antenna-like fins which are attached via a thin membrane to the back of its neck. It has bright yellow eyes and powerful legs ending in piercing talons. Its face, tail, feet, and wingtips are a dark navy blue, and its body is covered in striped patterns of the same colour. The ends of its wings are separated into four distinct flaps which overlap each other when folded, and its tail has three retractable fins on the left, right, and dorsal. Legiana has star-like shapes on the back of its wings. Its back is also dark blue.

Behavior and Abilities

Legiana is able to emit a chilling wind from its body, which dulls its prey's ability to escape. It flies with extreme precision and agility, using its talons to grab its prey straight out of the air. Legiana will sometimes fight Paolumu if both Flying Wyverns come across each other.[1] Its legs are strong enough to throw even medium-sized monsters such as Paolumu considerable distances once they are in its grasp. Legiana has been observed eating Raphinos, simply by grabbing one with its talons then biting into it.[2]

Legiana are intensely territorial and will attack whatever ventures into the upper reaches of the Coral Highlands. A Legiana was responsible for the Third Fleet being stranded in the highlands.

In Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, a flock of Legiana suddenly appeared fleeing the Ancient Forest, seemingly drawn by a mysterious song. This event set off the expedition to the Hoarfrost Reach.
