Steel Uragaan is a Brute Wyvern and a Subspecies of Uragaan introduced in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd.

This variant appears to have a hide of a deep metallic blue, rather than the golden hide of the common species. It is speculated that this altered coloration is due to the monster feeding on different types of ores.


It can inflict the Soiled status using a sulfuric yellow gas and the rocks it tosses will burn for a few seconds after being thrown, inflicting additional fire damage if they hit a hunter before they settle on the ground. These will also release soiling gas when exploded.


The Steel Uragaan does not live in a completely different habitat to its counterpart. For most of its life it remains in the Volcano, and much like the regular Uragaan, it stays there because of the abundant source of ore. Surprisingly, Steel Uragaan can sometimes be found inhabiting the temperate Deserted Island.

In-Game Description

Monster Hunter Portable 3rd
MHP3-Steel Uragaan Icon.png 鋼鎚竜”の異名を持つウラガンキンの亜種。通常種と同様、身体を丸めて高速で転がって移動するのが特徴。食性の違いか、体内で生成されるガスは悪臭が強い。体表に付着した岩石にもガスがしみこみ、それがばらまかれると、そこからも悪臭が吹き出す。
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
MH3U-Steel Uragaan Icon.png A metallic subspecies of Uragaan with an unusual diet that allows it to create a powerful, noxious gas. The gas permeates the rocks on its body, which then emit foul fumes when scattered. Like regular Uragaan, they can travel quickly by rolling.
Threat Level (危険度): ★★★★★


General Notes

  • To cut off its tail, you must break it first, then you have to make the tail flinch (Uragaan will lunge forward and whimper). You will then be able to cut its tail off after a few more hits.
  • Steel Uragaan's roar requires Earplugs to block.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

  • Steel Uragaan gains a new homing roll attack, at the end of which it slams its chin into the ground and expels soiling gas.
    • When low on stamina, Steel Uragaan will fail at expelling the gas.
    • When it swishes its tail and throws off three giant rocks, it is capable of soiling the hunter unexpectedly and is recommended to stay away from Steel Uragaan and avoid the rocks as they're launched. Additionally, the rocks should be avoided when they are detonated.

Monster Hunter Explore

  • Due to the absence of the soiled debuff in Explore, all of Steel Uragaan's attacks that typically inflict soiled will instead inflict paralysis.
