Silverwind Nargacuga are Deviants of Nargacuga introduced in Monster Hunter Generations.


Silverwind Nargacuga appears similar to normal Nargacuga, however similarly to Lucent Nargacuga it has bits of white fur and scales on parts of its body, though in this case the fur is aligned in bright striped patterns. It also has more spikes on its tail which protrude at all times and Silverwind Nargacuga's are often larger than normal ones.


Silverwind Nargacuga's are overall faster and stronger than normal individuals and are a bit more adept at throwing around their tail spines. But the biggest difference which has earned them the title of the Wind Cutting White Shadow's is powerful shockwaves they create with particularly strong and fast swings of their tails which can slice straight through the defenses of their opponents and leave them bleeding from deep gashes.


Compared to regular Nargacuga they prefer attacking from a distance, and overall more aggressive.

  • Silverwind Nargacuga's tail spikes are always extended, even when not in Rage Mode.
  • Silverwind Nargacuga can send off wind projectiles with its tail attacks.
    • When fatigued, it cannot send wind projectiles with its tail attacks.
    • When Silverwind's tail is severed, wind projectiles are smaller.
  • Silverwind Nargacuga can immediately go into its Prowler Stance after a sideways leap.
  • Silverwind Nargacuga can inflict bleeding with its tail slam. Its wind projectiles can also bleed but only if it hits the hunter while they're being knocked back.
