Fearful, fidgety Felynes
Advancing through the night
When suddenly out of nowhere
A horrid face causes fright
Be calm, there's no need to cry or moan!
It's just some old weather-beaten bone!
Yet not all is what it seems
For below this giant skull
Hides a devious monster
Waiting for some prey to gull
MH Rise Daimyo Hermitaur Characteristics & Locations
Large Carapaceons that live in coastal regions and sandy soil. Daimyo Hermitaurs use their massive claws to guard themselves against enemy attacks. These creatures wear wyvern skulls on their backs, unlike the shells carried in their infancy. These shells serve not only as protection, but also as a method for attacking prey. They are highly valued for their materials—their brains in particular.

MH Rise Daimyo Hermitaur Combat Info
Daimyo Hermitaurs' weak point is their head. Attacking it will inflict massive damage, so focus your attention there. However, they will use their gargantuan claws to defend themselves and to protect this soft spot. Using a Sonic Bomb when they adopt a defensive position is an excellent tactic to "crack the shell to get the nut inside."
