Viper Tobi-Kadachi is a Subspecies of Tobi-Kadachi first introduced in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne.


Much like its standard counterpart, the Viper Tobi-Kadachi's face resembles that of a colubrid with its body retaining several of the standard Tobi-Kadachi's characteristics such as the slim, squirrel-like body, the fur patches which trail across its back as well as the large, bushy tail armed with spikes.

Its main difference compared to the regular species is obviously the vastly different color scheme consisting of several shades of brown, bronze and burnt orange. Additionally, its belly and underside fade from a more yellowish hue to a pale blue.

On the tail itself also grow extra spikes which the Viper Tobi-Kadachi can use as powerful projectiles that can poison its prey. The eyes of the Viper Tobi-Kadachi are also different in that they have a more golden yellow coloration in comparison to the red eyes of its standard counterpart.

Behavior and Abilities

Viper Tobi-Kadachi has an arsenal consisting of powerful status effects. It uses a strong poison in order to attack its opponents which it can generate and utilize via its fangs or the extra spikes on its tail. It can use these spikes as projectiles, allowing the Viper Tobi-Kadachi to poison several opponents at once within a certain range, much like the Nargacuga's bleeding-inflicting tail spikes. While it cannot use thunder-based attacks, the Viper Tobi-Kadachi can paralyze its opponents using its fangs, giving it a deadly combination of powerful poison and the ability to immobilise opponents. Viper Tobi-Kadachi also retains the membranes between its limbs which allow it to glide around its opponents much like its standard counterpart.
