Shah Dalamadur is a Subspecies of Dalamadur introduced in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.


While Shah Dalamadur still looks the same as Dalamadur, Shah Dalamadur has a white tone and his spines have changed colours to a red-orange along with the remnants of his hind legs. The spikes on the top of Shah Dalamadur's face seems to be bigger then regular Dalamadur's spikes. Shah Dalamadur appears to be the same size as normal compared to regular Dalamadur.

General Notes

  • "Shah" is a directly non-translated word from the Persian language, Farsi. Its translated meaning is "King".
    • Some word candidates for this monster's name were Tsar, Imperial and Deshret, all of which are related to the color red and associated with power or royalty.[1]
  • Whilst the regular Dalamadur always starts off the battle curled up around the Speartip Crag, Shah Dalamadur starts the fight off clung to the edge of the area.
  • Shah Dalamadur can set the ground on fire with some of its bite and claw attacks which will damage hunters if they walk over it.
  • When its claws or spikes have a darker color, they become much tougher.
  • Shah Dalamadur's roar requires HG Earplugs to block.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

  • Most of Shah Dalamadur's body is extremely resilient, as even weapons with purple sharpness will be deflected unless the attack is backed by the Mind's Eye skill or a similar effect. While Enraged, all of Shah's breakable body parts get this trait unless they are already broken.
