Ominous clouds, torn apart
unleashing a torrent of rain
Then, an unrelenting typhoon
Connecting the heavens once again
Finally it shows its form
A hurricane made flesh
Bringing death through gale and storm
a dragon god ready to thresh


MH Rise Amatsu Characteristics & Ecology

An elder dragon that can manipulate the weather and are able to conjure up unrelenting gales. Amatsu glides through the air on currents they create using their wing membrane, making it look as if they're dancing in the sky. The storms they summon are extremely destructive and can lay entire cities to waste, thus they are known as the "Looming Calamity." When enraged, their storms become even more violent, enveloping the area with unrelenting lightning strikes.

Amatsu is a returning monster from previous titles, first introduced in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. Amatsu is destruction personified, possessing an almost god-like command over the wind and weather. Amatsu has a similar body structure to that of Narwa and Ibushi; it has a long, slender body akin to Leviathans, albeit with much smaller hind legs. Its entire back and forelegs are lined with fins which help it glide through the air. Just like Narwa and Ibushi, Amatsu is perpetually in flight, only very rarely touching the ground. For this reason, its hind legs appear atrophied and are much smaller than its front legs.

Amatsu can freely control the wind to a vastly greater extent than even Kushala Daora, allowing it to decimate the landscape with ferocious tornadoes, violent storms, and powerful blasts. It can also use its dominion over the wind to control other elements in the area, such as water, forming deadly whirlpools or pressurizing the water in its body to release ultra-powerful jets that can cleave through anything. Amatsu can also absorb wind to empower itself further, imbuing its attacks with lightning, and electrifying the environment and its victims.

Which Quests feature Amatsu in MH Rise?


MH Rise Amatsu Unlock Information

In order to unlock Amatsu, you must first reach Master Rank 10. After this prerequisite is met, Amatsu will be available for hunting in Quests in which the monster appears.


MH Rise Amatsu Combat Info

When Amatsu starts drawing in the storms around them, get ready for them to unleash a tornado attack. The only way to avoid taking damage is to use a Great Wirebug to escape into the air and remain suspended until the storm has calmed. Ballistae are scattered around the field, but beware that Silkbinder Shots will be deflected when Amatsu is surrounded by their wind barrier.

  • Threat Level: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Enraged Mode: Amatsu lets out a huge roar and its horns and chest begin glowing a bright yellow. The patterns on its wing membranes also glow a bright red/pink gradient. Amatsu will also periodically suction the air around the arena to empower itself further.
  • Rampage: Amatsu does not appear in the Rampage.


Quick Combat Tips:

  • Utilize the ballistae scattered about the arena to deal large amounts of damage to Amatsu when the opportunity arises. Try to line your shots so that they pierce through the length of the monster to make each shot count. You can also use their Silkbinder shots to cancel several of Amatsu's attacks with long wind-ups. Silkbinder shots are deflected by Amatsu's wind barrier. It dissipates the wind barrier as it winds up any of its attacks or while attacking, except for Lightning Nova.
  • Stun Resistance is highly recommended for this fight due to the number of moves in Amatsu's repertoire that can inflict stun very quickly.
  • When Amatsu flies straight up into the air and the battlefield turns a gloomy purple color, prepare to make your way to the closest Great Wirebug in the area as it is about to unleash an arena-wide lightning nova that will instantly cart any hunters on the ground. You must use the Great Wirebugs to launch yourself high in the air, wiredash forward and then perform a mid-air stop until the monster completes the move.


MH Rise Amatsu Attacks & Moveset

Amatsu will eventually enter a phase near the end of the fight where it infuses itself with lightning, granting it new moves and enhancing existing ones with a much wider range or an added lightning property.

Physical Attacks

Forward Dash - Amatsu floats back a very short distance and then dashes forward, knocking away any hunters in its path. Has a narrow hitbox that can easily be dodged by rolling to the sides.

Tail Slap - Amatsu performs a very quick backflip and then drags its tail across the ground in a wide arc, slapping and knocking away any hunters in its path. Has a tricky start-up, but the hitbox moves fast enough to dodge through.

Tail Sweep - Amatsu very suddenly spins 360 degrees, sweeping hunters all around it with its tail. As with all sweep attacks, dodge away or through the tail, against its direction.

Tail Uppercut - Amatsu raises its tail behind it and performs a backflip, launching hunters with its tail. Well-telegraphed and easily dodged by rolling to the side.

Fin Slap - Amatsu positions one of its forearms underneath the other on the opposite side and performs a wide back-handed slap. Hunters can simply dodge toward the monster as the attack comes. Dodging backward can cause you to get caught in the hitbox.

360 Spin - Typically used after Amatsu is launched into the air, such as after one of its breath attacks. Amatsu slowly floats back down and then spins in place, knocking hunters away with its entire body. Has a smaller radius than the Tail Sweep and can more easily be avoided with a backward dodge.

Breath Attacks

Water Blast - Amatsu lowers its head close to the ground, sucking in water and air for a brief period before releasing a powerful burst in a shotgun-like fashion. The burst is released in a large cone in front of the monster but its direction is locked as soon as it lowers its head so you can run around to the sides of its neck to avoid the move entirely.

Water Grenade - Amatsu forms a swirling ball of water near its mouth and lobs it at a target. On impact with a hunter or the environment, the ball bursts and deals damage in an area. The burst radius is much larger than the ball itself, but the water ball moves slowly through the air, allowing you to reposition easily. Amatsu can perform this multiple times in a row.

High-Pressure Jet - Amatsu releases a pressurized jet of water directly at the ground in front of it, then very quickly tilts its head up, sending the jet stream forwards. It can perform this twice in a row. Run from side to side or dodge to avoid the blasts.

Specials & Others

Wind Tunnel - Amatsu performs several quick somersaults sideways, creating a very large tunnel of wind that bursts into a powerful swirl of wind after a brief delay. Get away from the center immediately. Amatsu can also perform a double version of this move after being infused with lightning, creating two Wind Tunnels side-by-side, effectively doubling its already massive width. Quickly dash around the side of the tunnel closest to you to escape.

Tornado - Amatsu flies around in circles, forming a swirling column of air that sucks everything towards it. After a brief charge-up, the column bursts into a large Tornado which launches everything caught in its radius. Wiredash away from the move to avoid it. Alternatively, you can allow the non-damaging charge-up to pull you in and then perform an Emergency Evade as the Tornado bursts to avoid damage.

Whirlwind Storm - Amatsu quickly spins in the air as it lowers itself to the ground. Once it hits the ground, several tornadoes are released all around it, traveling outwards. Get away from the move's initiation and then slip in between the tornadoes. Amatsu will sometimes perform a variation of this move which first launches hunters high into the air before forming the tornadoes. To avoid this version, perform a wirefall and then wiredash between the tornadoes.

Focused Lightning - Amatsu targets one hunter and summons several bolts of lightning at their position. The monster can summon up to 4 bolts one after the other, but the move is highly telegraphed and can be avoided by keeping on the move. Do note that once the move is initiated, Amatsu is free to perform its other moves as the bolts follow the target, so watch out for overlaps with other attacks.

Lightning Barrage - Amatsu summons multiple lightning bolts all at once in a large area around it. While locations are random, they are all telegraphed the same as the Focused Lightning attack and there is sufficient space between each lightning strike where you can safely stand.

Lightning Tail Uppercut - After it begins using its lightning attacks, its Tail Uppercut will now create trails of lightning on the ground in a three-prong pattern that fans outwards. After a brief delay, bolts of lightning follow along these trails. When close to the monster, avoid it as you normally would, by dodging to the side. When further away, dodge toward the areas between each prong.

Lightning Wheel - Amatsu creates two electrified wheels of wind and water on the tip of its tail and then releases each in a staggered fashion. The wheels move in an arc along the ground, one to the left and one to the right. Watch the wheels carefully and dodge as they approach.

Lightning Nova (Ultimate Move) - Amatsu flies straight upwards, high in the air and the sky takes on an ominous purple hue. After a brief moment, Amatsu comes back to the ground, charging itself with lightning and electrifying the entire arena. At this point, each hunter's health bar will quickly drain. Amatsu will then reposition once more and release a very powerful AoE attack that is guaranteed to cart any hunters to the ground. To avoid this, quickly make your way to the nearest Great Wirebug as soon as the sky changes color. Use it to launch yourself high above the ground and then perform a Wiredash followed by a Midair Stop to suspend yourself in the air until the attack concludes.

      First time I fought it I timed out. Utsushi said "I have an idea" and disappeared. No zinogre, no Utsushi, for rest of the fight. I was using maxed out dragon db. Admittedly I wasn't as aggressive as usual but it seemed like something glitched. Anyone else have this, or is it a me problem?
