In-Game Information

MH3-Melynx Icon
Cat-like humanoids called Lynians with black fur. Their sticky-fingers never miss a chance to steal things and take them back to their den, forcing victims to seek out their lost items. Distracted by the sight of Felvine.


  • Order: Miscellaneous Diet
  • Family: Felyne
  • Species: Melynx

Melynx are the black Subspecies of the Felyne. Like Felyne, they are classified as Lynian.

Habitat Range

Melynx can be seen inhabiting a wide range of areas, including villages and cities in some cases.

Ecological Niche

Like Felyne, Melynx are very low in food chain. Melynx can be attacked by just about anything though are able to protect themselves.

Biological Adaptations

Much like Felyne, Melynx are quite intelligent. Melynx are able to build tools, trade with other Lynian tribes, and even settle in settlements. This is also shown through some actually disguising themselves as Felyne in order to steal items of interest right under ones nose. Unlike Felyne, who use bone picks, Melynx uses a Catspaw, which has a sticky edge for stealing items.


Melynx are considered to be quite curious, mischievous, and active. Melynx have a tendency to rob hunters of their items so they can see how valuable said item is. Once secluded, they'll look at the item and consider if its valuable or not. If it is valuable they'll either sell it, trade it, or give it away to another Lynian tribe. If it isn't valuable they may just intentionally leave it behind somewhere random. If items are stolen by a Melynx than there is chance that one could get it back by looking for a crude statue of a Felyne with paint on it. Some items can be recovered here.
