"When supercharged, parts of the monster become soft, but shock traps no longer work. You can also knock it out of supercharged mode by making it flinch several times. Once it's down, you can use the capture net to collect materials."
— MHWI In-game Useful Information


  • Equipping armor with high thunder resistance to reduce thunder damage. While you can also equip "Thunder Res Jewel" to increase thunder resistance further, it means that you have to sacrifice a decoration slot or two, which can be used to equip offensive decorations.
  • Using ice element weapons can increase the damage output, thus causing the hunt to end much quicker, and thus reducing the further mistakes when prolonged.
  • Using weapon types that have good mobility to avoid being hit or defensive weapons to tank the damage.
    • You can also use countering weapons such as Long Sword and Charge Blade, but make sure that it will not chain another attack, or else you will get hit again after your counterattack.
  • Try avoiding getting hit as much as you can, especially the attack that inflicts Status Effect-Thunderblight MH4 Icon Thunderblight, since it will make you become stunned more easily.
