In-Game Description

Monster Hunter Generations
MHGen-Silverwind Nargacuga Icon White streaks like polish on a blade. Flashes from a tail that cleave the earth, sunder rock, and split the sky. The "Silverwind" summons a gale that slices. The careless fool is unaware, until his head falls cleanly from his shoulders. Requires special permission to hunt.
Threat Level (危険度): ★★★★★★
