Monster Hunter Stories
Carnivorous monsters with vivid blue scales. They hunt in packs using a deadly mix of strength and cunning.
Velociprey are closely related to three other species of Bird Wyvern: Giaprey, Genprey and Ioprey. These minions first appeared in the original Monster Hunter, except for Giaprey, which appeared in Monster Hunter 2.
Although Velociprey don't appear in Monster Hunter 3, they are mentioned in the description for Bird Wyvern Fang; allegedly a Velociprey Fang is very similar to that item.
It has been observed that Velociprey will actively attack a Rathian when in close proximity.
Velociprey have a total of 14 fingers, with seven fingers on each hand. This is the same for the Giaprey.
Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
In Freedom-2 and Unite, it is possible to "erase" these monsters (and the other 'prey monsters) if you score a killblow with a cutting weapon while they are in mid-air during their high leaping attacks. This will cause them to become sliced clean in half and their remains will instantly fade away, leaving no corpse behind.
