Taxonomy

An old individual with an abnormally large horn, Zenith Doragyurosu is a Zenith Species of Doragyurosu.[1]

History

Shortly after the hunting ban was lifted off the Zenith Species, the Guild began discovering more of them over time such as the Zenith Doragyurosu.

Habitat Range

Just like the Supremacy Doragyurosu, Zenith Doragyurosu has only ever been seen living in the Great Forest Peak.[2]

Ecological Niche

Zenith Doragyurosu is easily comparable to an Elder Dragon in strength, much like normal Doragyurosu, especially with its control over the dragon element. The only monsters that could challenge it are another Doragyurosu, Espinas Subspecies, Espinas Rare Species, and Howling Zinogre.

The Two Paths of a Phantom

Few individuals become a Phantom Doragyurosu, but that isn't the end of their growth in power.[3] Depending on how an individual can handle the massive amounts of dragon energy, there are two paths one can take.[4] Those that can't completely control it will become a Supremacy Doragyurosu while the ones that use their horn as a conduit will eventually become a Zenith Doragyurosu.[5] Although both can use the element efficiently in different ways, it severely burns their body and damages them internally.[6]

Biological Adaptations

Zenith Doragyurosu has many of the same adaptions as Doragyurosu, however, there are a few differences between them. Although Zenith Doragyurosu looks normal from a distance, it's constantly in a state of agony. From the dragon element flowing throughout its body for prolonged periods, it has damaged itself both internally and externally.[7] It even has to force itself to fly, despite flapping its wings being painful to it.[8] Most of the damage it has sustained on its wings are internal, and only a small portion of the webbing is useful for flight.[9] The dragon element has also charred its scales, tail, claws, and even its bone marrow.[10] Despite all of its suffering, the source of Zenith Doragyurosu's immense power is its abnormal horn. With it, it's able to fully control the dragon element and fire off concentrated blasts of dragon energy with ease.[11] These blasts are extremely hot, melting away the ground as well as any creatures that are within the range of its attacks.[12] They also cover a wider radius compared to normal individuals.[13] Although it can control its power perfectly, it has to keep its horn intact at all times.[14] Once broken, it'll lose most of its abilities and its attacks will deal less damage. Its dragon energy will also damage it internally, endangering its life.[15]

Behavior

Zenith Doragyurosu is much more aggressive than Doragyurosu, so great care should be taken while hunting one.
