Where is my queen? Where is my queen? I am storm incarnate, I shall wipe the land clean. So we may meet at last, in paradise unseen.
- Wind Serpent Ibushi, Breath of Ire


Wind Serpent Ibushi is an Elder Dragon first introduced in Monster Hunter Rise.

Appearance

Ibushi is the male of an elder dragon species that consists of itself and the Thunder Serpent Narwa. Similar to Amatsu, this species has a long and leviathan-like body with short hind legs and a long tail (though in the case of the Serpents, their legs are more paddle or fin-like). This species also has two sets of jaws, with the lower outer jaw and both inner jaws being split jaws. This species has multiple sacs across the body, namely the forelegs, back, chest, and at the tail tip, which have different properties based on the gender.

Being the male of the species, Ibushi have several traits that sets themselves apart from Narwa. Ibushi have spiky, light blue shells that adorn their light blue body. On their head are several narrow horns that point upward, with somes angled forward. The most prominent trait, which gives the males their title, are wind sacs which Ibushi use to float around. These wind sacs are located on the forelegs, back, chest, and tail tips, marked by the presence of glowing tendrils on Ibushi's body. The wind sacs are capable of inflating to a degree and produce a special gas that Ibushi can freely control, which is then primarily used for it's own propulsion.

Behavior and Abilities

Not much is known about Ibushi prior to its discovery. However, what is known is that Ibushi wanders around in the sky in search of its "queen", as referred to by Hinoa during their resonation. Every fifty years, Ibushi, as well as the Thunder Serpent Narwa, will emerge to mate with each other; in order to do so, Ibushi will wander the land to seek out Narwa. Ibushi is also known to cause destructive storms by sending dragon energy into the ground. This turbulence is strong enough to uproot trees and wipe out the landscape. This causes nearby monsters to become terrified and flee directly into Kamura Village, and is thus the primary cause of the Rampage.

Ibushi is said to exhibit inexplicable behaviors such as floating upside down in the air. It can send out orbs of dragon energy from its tail, as well as causing air explosions from the wind sacs on its arms. The dragon energy Ibushi releases can cause updrafts to appear, which are strong enough to send a hunter into the air. Ibushi can also breathe a beam of energy from its mouth.

MHRise-Wind Serpent Ibushi Icon.png A male elder dragon that exhibits inexplicable behaviors such as floating upside down midair. Research indicates that the emission of a special gas from all over its body, and the modulation of this gas, is what allows it to move freely. It shows air from gills on its arms and tail to fly, creating its own turbulence and soaring to great heights.
Threat Level (危険度): ★★★★★★★★★

Notes

  • Wind Serpent Ibushi can be fought exclusively at the Red Stronghold as a major threat in High-Rank Rampage Quests.
  • Wind Serpent Ibushi can't be killed, only repelled. However, while fleeing, it will lose some tendrills which are possible to carve.
  • Wind Serpent Ibushi is based off the Japanese wind god Fujin.
    • The glowing wind sacs lining Ibushi's body may be inspired by common depictions of Fujin which involve him holding a large bag of wind.
