"A mutated Deviljho variant, driven mad by its overpowering hunger. It will attempt to feed on all it sees."
MHWI Description

Savage Deviljho is a Brute Wyvern and a Variant of Deviljho introduced in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.

Physiology

Its standard appearance and abilities are the same reddened-state as that of a normal Deviljho in rage mode. When enraged, it has a dark red haze of Dragon Element surrounding its face, as its eyes turn into a blood-red hue and its skin changes to a light brownish color. The Savage Deviljho's scales appear slightly darker than their regular counterparts', but their tailfangs are also blood-red in colour.

Abilities

This variant is faster, stronger, and more tenacious than even the average Deviljho, capable of even larger breath attacks and more complex uses of the Dragon Element regardless of rage state as well as additional voracious attack patterns.

Habitat

Like Deviljho, it can be encountered in any environment.

Aesthetically they gain a golden hide and aura, red spikes on their back and tail, and sharper teeth. They have improved attacks compared to ordinary Savage Deviljho, such as 360-degree dragon breath attacks and the capability to make a large area of ground explode with Dragon energy after several stomps.

Notes

General Notes

  • In a fashion similar to Furious Rajang's appearance, Savage Deviljho is by default in a standard Deviljho's reddened rage state (though not huffing dragon breath, and with a blackened face). Its own rage state has Dragon element energy consume its head and neck, while its exhausted state is indicated by acidic drool that inflicts the Defense Down status with biting attacks.
    • As such, it inverts the standard Deviljho's weakpoints: outside of rage the stomach is the weakest point, and in its rage the head is weakest (to Raw). Due to Dragonblight disabling elements from weapons since MH3U, said rage-state head is completely immune to elemental damage: the elemental weakpoint is instead Thunder applied to the tail.
    • It can use its dragon breath at all times, and in its own rage state adds substantial range to the attack.
  • Savage Deviljho's roar requires HG Earplugs to block.
  • In its introduction to the series in MH3U, Savage Deviljho used the same icon as the normal Deviljho. A different icon was shown in a magazine scan that went unused:  MH3U-Savage Deviljho Icon
    • This icon was probably the inspiration for MH4's icon for Savage Deviljho: MH4-Savage Deviljho Icon.
  • Savage Deviljho will revert to a normal Deviljho upon defeat, unlike other Variants.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

  • Savage Deviljho may be summoned by Qurupeco and Crimson Qurupeco in G-Rank.
  • Whilst its attacking patterns and behavior are largely similar to the ordinary Deviljho, Savage Deviljho is also able to connect a lunging bite to a burst of dragon breath. However, unlike a standard G-Rank Deviljho, it cannot finish the sweeping attack with a stomp.
  • Outside of event quests, Savage Deviljho only appears as an intruder for G-rank quests in Port Tanzia, and the chance of encountering one is very low.
  • Upon slaying a Savage Deviljho one will receive the Malnourished Blood award.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

  • In G-Rank a standard Deviljho gains a four-steps raised-body upward dragon breath attack in rage, and Savage Deviljho can use this regardless of rage state.
  • The lunging bite attack no longer combos into the dragon breath attack, but instead has new properties. Its hitbox also includes the tail and it leads into a new pin attack, where it chews on a targeted hunter and carries them in its mouth while attacking other hunters.
  • In G-Rank Savage Deviljho can finish its head-sweeping attack with the aimed pinning leap, as opposed to the standard Deviljho finishing it with a stomp.
  • Savage Deviljho gets its own armor and weapons.
    • It gains two material items not obtainable from normal Deviljho: Spattered Hide in High Rank and Bloodied Ebonhide in G-Rank. Unlike Black Blood, these can only be acquired from body and tail carves.
    • Unlike in MH3U, the G-Rank material item Vile Fang can only be obtained from Savage Deviljho, while the normal Deviljho provides Hardfangs instead.
  • In contrast to its previous famed intruder state, Savage Deviljho can only appear in a few High Rank quests in multiplayer, and only one event quest in G-Rank multiplayer. It can also be encountered in one offline High Rank quest and as a Rare encounter in the Everwood.
  • Upon slaying a Savage Deviljho one will receive the Savage Deviljho Esoterica award.

Monster Hunter Generations

  • Savage Deviljho can inflict Dragonblight with its bites when enraged.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne

  • Savage Deviljho replaces the standard Deviljho in Master Rank.
  • Savage Deviljho's enraged state will not end on its own. While in this mode, it will continuously chase its targets across the map.
    • Savage Deviljho will often be encountered already in an enraged state.
    • To force Savage Deviljho out of its rage mode, it must be damaged while it is performing its lunging bite counterattack. This will knock it over and leave it vulnerable for a few moments.
      • Unlike a normal Deviljho, a part that has been tenderised by the Clutch Claw must be hit otherwise it will just stagger backwards and remain enraged.
    • Even if it's enraged, Savage Deviljho will leave the area on its own after some time has passed. Dung Pods can also drive it away.
  • Savage Deviljho usually prefers to attack other large monsters in the same area rather than hunters.
  • Savage Deviljho can perform its mouth slam attack twice in a row, leaving a damaging trail of dragon energy behind each time it lifts its jaws from the ground. This attack always deals 500 damage to other monsters and will often knock them down.
    • The attack would instantly kill Trailraider monster companions on hit.
  • Savage Deviljho has a wider variety of breath attacks than its regular counterpart, including a lingering cloud that deals continuous damage and inflicts Dragonblight, a very long range stream, and a massive burst of dragon energy.
  • Savage Deviljho's jumping pin attack has a longer range than regular Deviljho's and cannot be blocked, even with the skill Guard Up.
  • Aside from the regular Deviljho's turf wars, Savage Deviljho also has turf wars with Azure Rathalos, Black Diablos, Velkhana, Seething Bazelgeuse, Blackveil Vaal Hazak, Namielle, Ruiner Nergigante and Rajang.
  • Aside from the monsters found after the final boss, Savage Deviljho isn't required to be hunted to progress the story and does not have an assigned quest for it. It will instead appear in expeditions and quests once Velkhana has been slain.

Monster Hunter Explore

  • Due to the absence of the Dragon Element in Explore, Savage Deviljho is from water element instead.
    • But, it still uses dragon breath attacks during a battle.
