Nono Orugaron is a Fanged Beast introduced in Monster Hunter Frontier Season 6.0.


Nono and Kamu Orugaron are canine like Fanged Beasts with two sharp tusks and numerous quills running along their backs and tails, they also have fur tufts on their legs, backs, and tails. What separates Nono Orugaron is her smaller tusks and quills, white and yellow fur, no "fur Mohawk", and greater agility.


Their attacks include a wind blast, a spinning move, jumping on top of the hunter, a double scratch attack, a 180 degree bite, leaping into the air and hurling some of her quills below, and a extremely loud roar that deals a large amount of damage. Both Nono and Kamu are able to avoid pitfall traps.

As of Monster Hunter Frontier G Genuine: In a G Rank quest against Nono, it will have the ability to encase its legs with ice, creating a kind of armor. Once in this form, some of her attacks will become empowered by the Ice element to cause more damage to the hunters. Eventually she will break the ice with a howl sending small shards of it flying in a spread shot.


The Nono Orugaron is female, and often seen with its male counterpart the Kamu Orugaron (much like the Teostra and Lunastra, or the Rathalos and Rathian). Interestingly though, these new monsters are designed for a new kind of combat, as it would seem unlike Rathalos and Rathian, that Kamu and Nono stay with each other throughout the full course of the quest. They also attack almost simultaneously, with either the same move or moves that could cut the hunter off.

However, sometimes the player is requested to hunt Nono Orugaron on its own, and it will separate from Kamu Orugaron.


Nono and Kamu Orugaron are nomadic and technically don't primarily live in the Swamp they are most commonly found in, they can also be found in places such as the Tower 3 and Fortress Ruins.
