Tzitzi-Ya-Ku are Bird Wyverns first introduced in Monster Hunter: World. They can be found in the Coral Highlands. This odd monster blinds both prey and enemies with a special pulsing organ near its head. It then uses its strong legs to deliver finishing blows. Their materials can be used to craft raw/thunder weapons and the Tzitzi armor sets.

Physiology

Tzitzi-Ya-Ku is a medium-sized Bird Wyvern of navy blue coloration. It has long, powerful back legs, and muscular forelegs complete with three claws for grasping prey. Perhaps its most unique feature is the pair of retractable frills that line either side of its head, which are bright and vividly colorful in appearance. Its back is lined with a row of short spines, and it has wide sturdy feet.

Behavior and Abilities

Tzitzi-Ya-Ku is able to emit bright flashes of light from the fins on the sides of its head. This can be used to disorient attackers and prey alike, allowing the monster to gain the upper hand in combat. Its powerful hind legs can be used to deliver potent kicks during battle. Before Tzitzi-Ya-Ku uses its flash attack, the range of the flash is briefly shown twice.[1] Master-Rank Tzitzi-Ya-Ku can change direction as it prepares the flash. Tzitzi-Ya-Ku's head can be wounded; this disables the flash, though it still tries to use it.

This monster is comparatively low on the food chain, so it uses the dark coloration of its body to blend in and stalk its prey amongst the shadowy undergrowth of the Coral Highlands, far below the jurisdiction of the powerful Wyverns that rule the local ecosystem. When threatened by stronger monsters it will use its flash attack to stun them then run away.

Tzitzi-Ya-Ku has a habit of flashing monsters in the same area before fleeing. This notorious habit can be very annoying as hunters and monsters that are engaged in battle with each other are interupted even if neither party targeted or had previously aggravated the Tzitzi-Ya-Ku.
