Pukei-Pukei is a Bird Wyvern first introduced in Monster Hunter: World. Pukei-Pukei can be found in the Ancient Forest and Wildspire Waste. Their materials can be used to craft poisonous weapons and the Pukei Armor Set.


Physiology

Pukei-Pukei slightly resembles a chameleon, with limited color-shifting, and its eyes are similar to frogs. It has a pair of wings and is covered in green, feather-like scales that vary in color throughout its body, excluding its orange underbelly and . Its underbelly is covered in white osteoderm-like protrusions. Despite being reptilian in nature, Pukei-Pukei has vibrant feathers around its neck and wings. Pukei-Pukei was based on flowers and one of its design concepts was of an accordion.[1]

Behavior and Abilities

Pukei-Pukei is known to store the properties of its food within its mouth and tail before combining them with its own poison. By doing so, it can spew poison from its mouth and tail for protection. This poison varies depending on its previous meal. For example, if Pukei-Pukei eats a Scatternut then its poison will gain similar stunning abilities. Hunters can drop Scatternuts on Pukei-Pukei in order to prevent it from feeding on nuts.[2]

Observational reports state that Pukei-Pukei will bully weaker monsters but cower before bigger, stronger monsters. It's prone to retreating at the first sign of danger, so use that to your advantage. When enraged, the head and wing feathers of the Pukei-Pukei will turn red. When fatigued, feathers on its head and wings are faded, its eyes are also narrowed. Pukei-Pukei's head, back, and wings can be wounded, and its tail severed.
