In-Game Description

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
MH3U-Lucent Nargacuga Icon.png A rare species of Nargacuga whose behavior and habitat are shrouded in mystery. Legend claims it appears on foggy nights at a remote and well-hidden location, but the veracity of this claim is still being researched by the guild.

Notes

General Notes


  • Lucent Nargacuga has a much harder head and chest than its cousins. Only weapons with Purple sharpness can successfully cut through the head and chest without bouncing off, unless the player has the skill "Mind's Eye" equipped.
    • However, when enraged, both head and chest do not reflect weapons with sharpness of Blue or better.
  • The spikes from its tail inflict Poison.
  • Lucent Nargacuga's roar has a much wider range than its other two counterparts, but still only requires standard earplugs to block.
  • Lucent Nargacuga can be carved 4 times, like the Uragaan, instead of the usual 3 (although the tail can still only be carved once).
  • Unlike Chameleos, Lucent Nargacuga is capable of rendering itself completely invisible, while it performs its "Strafe" or "Back Jump"-maneuver, except for the red eye trails during Rage Mode.
  • The Lucent Nargacuga can do a double tail slam like its predecessor, the Green Nargacuga.
  • The Lucent Nargacuga can also do a double 360 Tail Swipe which throws venomous spikes from its tail when it's spiked up.
  • The fumes from Dung Bombs and Felvine Bombs are retained when Lucent Nargacuga is invisible, so hitting one with a Dung Bomb or Felvine Bomb will help players to see where it is when invisible.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate


  • Lucent Nargacuga can be unlocked after reaching HR 40.

  • Even with the game saying that Lucent Nargacuga has the ice element, it doesn't seems to use any elemental attack.
