Malfestio is a Bird Wyvern introduced in Monster Hunter Generations.

Physiology

Malfestio superficially resembles an owl. Its body is covered in blue plumage with a grayish belly, a yellow collar, and a white face with a small beak and red eyes. On its head are long tufts that point back and are tipped with yellow. There are hints of yellow on its legs that end in scaly feet that have two talons and one small vestigial toe. Its wings have bright blue membranes. Along its wings are long blade-like claws. Its flattened tail ends in a three-pointed shape. Like a real owl, it can turn its head around to see directly behind itself.

Abilities

From its feathers Malfestio can produce yellow scales that disoriente prey and put them in a confused state. It can produce an ultrasound beam that can easily put prey to sleep. The claws along its wings are usually hidden but are revealed once the Bird Wyvern becomes enraged. In rage mode it will begin to use these claws as weapons.

Behavior

Malfestio is a nocturnal predator that uses its talons and wing claws to attack prey. Like Nargacuga, it sleeps in trees to avoid terrestrial predators.

Habitat

Malfestio is known to inhabit the Jurassic Frontier, Deserted Island, and Primal Forest.

Notes

General Notes

  • Malfestio's Japanese name, Hororohoruru (ホロロホルル), is derived from the Japanese onomatopoeia for owl sounds, chloroform, and Koropokkuru, a race of small people in Ainu folklore.
    • The English name, Malfestio, is a mix of maleficus meaning "wicked" in Latin, jester, and Asio, a genus of owls.
      • A few proposals for the English name included Sonotus, Strikkua and Notrios.[1]
  • Malfestio's head and tail can be wounded, and its wing talons can be broken.
  • When becoming enraged, Malfestio's tufts erect, a part of its face turns red and its wing talons extend.
    • In this state, it is capable of inflicting Confusion with more attacks, and will sweep the hypnotic beam from left to right instead of firing it directly straight ahead.
  • When Fatigued, the tufts hang down and Malfestio will stumble when it tries to charge or attack with its wings.
  • Malfestio will feed on Kelbi to restore stamina.
  • Malfestio is capable of using a unique status effect, Confusion, which will cause afflicted hunters to have their movement controls reversed.
  • Malfestio's roar requires Earplugs to block.
  • At G-Rank, it gains the ability to do a wing slam similar to Astalos.
