The "Stonefist" is a Hermitaur with an enlarged left pincer which doubles as a sturdy black shield. Its armor causes blades to shatter, and for shots to bounce off, filling the Hunter with holes instead. Requires special permission to hunt.

MHGen: Deviant Theme
Stonefist Hermitaur has an improved water blast attack that covers a wider area.
Weapons will bounce off its big pincer. Shots will reflect, hitting the attacker and flinching them but doing no damage.
Tripping it will however make this pincer vulnerable, letting off steam making it soft enough to damage.
Its legs are now breakable.
Breaking its legs doesn't give any extra reward after completing a quest.
When not enraged, Stonefist Hermitaur can dig out of Pitfall Traps.
Stonefist Hermitaur may fall down for an extended period of time and drop a shiny if its face is staggered.
G-Rank Stonefist Hermitaur can perform an outwards sweep with its big pincer.
