Similar to Blangongas and Rajangs in build, Slicemargls are large quadrupeds with canine-esque faces. Their bodies are covered in a white pelt with black stripes, and sharp, blade-like bones protrude from their arms and back. Much like the aforementioned Fanged Beast species, Slicemargls are often seen walking on their fists.
Slicemargls heavily rely on their blade-like bones in battle, with their punches oftentimes inflicting the Stabbed ailment onto hunters. They are also capable of launching the bones on their backs far distances while jumping.

- Unlike most other monsters, Slicemargls do not roar when they enter Rage Mode. Instead, they will slam their arms on the ground in front of them, extending the bones on their arms in the process.
- Slicemargls' head, forearms, back and tail can be wounded.
- The bones on Slicemargls' forearms can only be wounded while they are enraged. Wounding them stuns the Slicemargl for a few seconds, as well as preventing that arm from inflicting Stabbed. However, these bones will regenerate over the course of the hunt, regaining their ability to inflict Stabbed if allowed to fully regrow.
- Wounding the bones on a Slicemargl's back prevents it from launching bones while jumping or landing. However, just like their forearms, their backs will attempt to regenerate the bones.
