Pukei-Pukei is a Bird Wyvern first introduced in Monster Hunter: World.

Appearance

Pukei-Pukei slightly resembles a chameleon, with a limited color-shifting capability, 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 underbelly, which is covered in white osteoderm-like platings. Despite being reptilian in nature, Pukei-Pukei has vibrant feathers around its neck and wings.

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 with various effects depending on its previous meal. For example, if Pukei-Pukei eats a Scatternut, then its poison will gain a stunning ability. Hunters can drop Scatternuts on Pukei-Pukei in order to prevent it from feeding on nuts.[1]

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, the color of feathers on its head and wings fades, its eyes also narrows.

Hunting Tips

The regurgitation of a Pukei-Pukei varies depending on what it has eaten: it may spread wider, linger on the ground, or even stun prey more easily. Check, therefore, that the monster's mouth and tail aren't swollen prior to engaging.

Notes

General Notes

  • Pukei-Pukei was based on flowers and one of its design concepts was of an accordion.[2]

Monster Hunter: World

  • In the collaboration quest for The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, a friendly Pukei-Pukei can be found trapped in a Leshen's roots. If freed with the Igni Sign, it will assist the player in fighting the Leshen. It can be healed using Lifepowder if it is injured.
    • If the Pukei-Pukei survives the quest until the end, it and a Grimalkyne will award the player with an Attack Jewel.

  • Monster Hunter Rise

  • Pukei-Pukei can appear in the rampage. It is considered a Targetter type.
