Zenith Anorupatisu shares an incredibly similar look to it's standard counterpart, however, it's already impressive nose horn has further developed. It sports a larger, triangular shape and a white colour, compared to the darker blues of the standard species.
The design motif appears to be modelled after a torpedo.
Zenith Anorupatisu can send crystals at hunters to damage them, in the style of the Rathian families' signature "backflip" attack. It will also use a new digging attack where it will home in on a hunter as it drills into the ice. Whilst it is hidden underground, it selects a target (indicated by three quick flashes of ice underneath their feet) before drilling up underneath them and landing, producing a wide area of Zenith Tremor.
Starting at 2★ (GR400) Zenith level, Zenith Anorupatisu is able to utilise a double sweeping dragon beam, without needing to have taken any damage. At 4★ (GR800) Zenith level, Zenith Anorupatisu gains a powerful one-shot attack, where it jams its horn into the ice underneath a hunter, and launches them into the air. A short cutscene will play for any Hunters thrown into the air, where Zenith Anorupatisu flies up and drives the unlucky person into the ground, burying them in the ice. This attack cannot be mitigated with any armour skills, Halk Potions, Lifepowders from team mates or Farcasters, it guarantees a faint.
Zenith Anorupatisu utilises Zenith Roars and Zenith Tremors, as well as Zenith Iceblight from its breath attacks. Despite using Dragon Element attacks, Zenith Anorupatisu will not inflict Zenith Dragonblight.
When afflicted by Zenith Iceblight, Hunters will find their stamina bar turn grey and rapidly decrease. One the bar empties itself, the affected person will be frozen in a block of ice, vulnerable to attack. To negate the effects, one must eat a Nulberry, have an Ice Resistance of 55 or over, or, when afflicted with the blight, mash buttons and move the Control Stick.
Breaking the nose-horn of Zenith Anorupatisu will remove its ability to cause Zenith Quakes and Zenith roars, allowing hunters larger windows of opportunity to attack.
Zenith Anorupatisu can been living in the Polar Sea.
*Zenith Anorupatisu's horn can be broken, its wings can be wounded, and its tail can be severed.
