Nightcloak Malfestio has golden scales on its chest and the edges of its wings and bright red wing webbing and tail feathers. Its tail feathers are dark purple in color and resemble a four-pointed claw.


In addition to using larger clouds of confusion scales, Nightcloak Malfestio have the ability to turn invisible, like Lucent Nargacuga or Chameleos. They can also steal items from hunters.


Nightcloak Malfestio's use of invisibility allows it to more easily sneak up on prey, giving it a more aggressive disposition. Its devilish behavior and abilities mean that hunters require special permission to hunt it.
