In-Game Information

MH4U-Oroshi Kirin Icon

Reliable sightings of these elusive creatures are virtually nonexistent. The few reports available claim that temperatures plummet whenever they appear, as all moisture in the air spontaneously freezes.


  • Order: Elder Dragon
  • Suborder: Phantom Beast
  • Family: Kirin
  • Species: Oroshi Kirin

Oroshi Kirin is a Subspecies of the Elder Dragon, Kirin, that wasn't known about until recently. It is rumored that Oroshi Kirin may not truly be a subspecies of Kirin but rather some type of mutation.

Habitat Range

Oroshi Kirin have only been rarely spotted in the Everwood and Tower Summit.

Ecological Niche

Due to Oroshi Kirin not being seen interacting with other species, it is hard to put it into the ecological niche. It is not likely, however, that Oroshi Kirin shares the same predator as their electrical cousin, Rajang.

Biological Adaptions

Oroshi Kirin is able to manipulate cold air, allowing it to freeze the moisture in the very air around itself. By freezing the moisture around itself, Oroshi Kirin is able to summon shards of ice for defense against threats. Some Oroshi Kirin are even able to make freezing fogs appear in set areas, freezing would be attackers with snow. This ability comes from its horn which is able to lower surrounding air temperature. Due to this freezing ability Oroshi Kirin's color has changed to a dark, navy blue, the opposite of a Kirin's color.


Oroshi Kirin are as a aggressive as a normal Kirin. One Oroshi Kirin was even able to freeze whole kingdoms in a single night.
