While considered a Subspecies by the Guild, Terra Shogun Ceanataur is actually the same species as Shogun Ceanataur. Terra Shogun Ceanataurs are particularly aggressive Shogun Ceanataurs that have moved to harsher environments, such as volcanoes and swamps, to live in solitude. These environments provide unique sources of nutrition, giving Terra Shogun Ceanataurs a reddish-brown coloration. Living in these harsh environments has also toughened the shells of Terra Shogun Ceanataurs, making them much harder than the average Shogun Ceanataur. Their habitat also gives them access to the notably tougher skulls of Black Gravios, giving them even more defense against intruders.
The Terra Shogun Ceanataur has the same elemental weakness as its more common counterpart, apart from an additional vulnerability to Water on its rear shell.
Terra Shogun Ceanataur, as is normal for a rarer subspecies, is slightly stronger, faster and has more health than the common species.

- It can shoot water out of the shell even when its not on a cavern ceiling.
- Unlike the normal Shogun Ceanataur, which utilizes three different shells (Unknown wyvern skull theorized to be lavasioth, Gravios Skull and Conch Shell), it always wears a Black Gravios skull.
- Breaking its Black Gravios skull once or twice yields a Black Gravios Skull Shell.
- When weak, Terra Shogun Ceanataur rests in Area 7 of the Old Swamp.
- Like the Shogun Ceanataur, breaking one of its claws leaves the monster in rage mode for the rest of the quest.
- Terra Shogun's claws are relatively soft, and its shell relatively hard - the opposite of the normal Shogun Ceanataur.
- "Terra" means "Earth" in Latin, and relates to the Terra Shogun Ceanataur in that its materials imply it's earth-based, as well as the color of soil or terracotta clay.
- It has a slightly larger pincers than the Shogun Ceanataur.
- Just like the Shogun Ceanataur when enraged its pincers will extend increasing its range.
