At a distant flight
Lies an island of fire
There walks a dark beast
A great ball of ire
Wielders of flame
Who dare to engage
Will only succeed at
Igniting its rage
For it's the top player
And the world is its stage

 

MH Rise Rajang Characteristics & Ecology

An ultra-aggressive creature that is rarely sighted and seldom survived. Those that have survived report that it exhibits a strange attack. Rajang are said to be loners, and this isolated life has made it difficult to pin down its territorial leanings. When angered, part of its pelt turns a golden color.

Quick Combat Tips

 

  • Rajang's weakspot is its head. When not in its Super Enraged state, its arms also take a decent amount of damage but be wary as nearly all of Rajang's attacks are aimed at its front and have large hitboxes.
  • When enraged, focus your attention on Rajang's tail. Dealing enough damage to it can known the beast down and possibly out of enrage mode.
  • After being in enraged mode a certain amount of time, Rajang will let out a furious roar and enter Super Enraged mode. Its arms glow red and will cause weapons to bounce. It also gains access to its Thundering Smash move that hits extremely hard.
  • Take advantage of the long animations and recovery times of certain attacks such as its Lightning Beam and Thundering Smash. Close the distance and attack Rajang while it is vulnerable.
  • Be wary of using traps against Rajang as their effectiveness depends on its current state. Rajang will break Shock Traps while in Super Enraged mode but can be trapped while in its normal and regular enraged states. Rajang will avoid Pitfall Traps unless it is enraged or super enraged. Note that Rajang can still attack you while inside a Pitfall Trap.

 

Rajang Attacks & Moveset

Pummeling Rage - Rajang's bread & butter attack. It stands tall, twists its torso from one side to the other as it raises its arms and begins a flurry of arcing punches as it advances towards a target. Despite the scary appearance of the combo, the safest way to avoid this attack is to roll towards Rajang and between his back legs. Dodging in any other direction can potentially fail as each swing has a wide arc and a large hitbox.

Spinning Clothesline - Rajang stands tall, slightly pivoted to one side with one leg behind the other as it spreads its arms. It then throws its entire body forward while spinning 360 degrees and swinging hard at its target. This move comes out very quickly and knocks players far away. Try to dodge under the swinging arm or at least to its side as the attack comes in.

Mad Dash - Rajang does several quick hops across the battlefield in a zig-zag pattern, trampling any hunters along its path. Beware of the erratic pattern. At the end of the move, if Rajang finds its rear facing towards a hunter, it will perform a quick back hop that deals moderate damage and knocks players away

Lightning Beam - Rajang lets out a roar as it raises its head while electricity crackles in its mouth. It then shoots out a beam of lightning in a straight line across from it. The attack has a moderate sized hitbox and a long animation. Dodge it early and go on the offensive as Rajang is vulnerable as it shoots the beam. This move is highly telegraphed by audible cues from your hunter.

Ball Lightning - Rajang leaps high into the air and shoots a ball of lightning towards a hunter. The attack has a narrow hitbox but travels fast. It inflicts Thunderblight on a direct hit.

Thundering Smash - This move is used exclusively while Rajang is in its Super Enraged state. It lets out a loud roar, leaps very high up into the air and comes crashing down as it slams both fists on the ground. This attack deals very heavy damage but is highly telegraphed, including audible cues from your hunter.

Cannonball Dive - Rajang leaps high into the air and curls into a ball before divebombing towards a hunter. The attack has a slight AoE on impact. Dodge early to avoid it completely.

Spinning Uppercut - Rajang punches the ground with one arm and with the other, performs spinning uppercut, sending hunters flying on hit. Dodge away from Rajang as this attack comes in.

Ground Pound Combo - Rajang slams the ground three times. The first two fall on either side of the monster and are very quick while the third slam has a short wind-up. It has moderate tracking and will come down towards the hunter. The third slam is the easiest to dodge as it is slower.

Full Body Slam - Rajang stands tall, raising both arms above its head before performing a belly flop. Deals heavy damage on a direct hit and also causes tremors around the impact zone, causing hunters to lose their footing for a few seconds. Dodge towards and underneath Rajang's hind legs as it hops up to the dive.

Upheaval - Rajang digs its forearms into the earth, pulling up a large chunk of rock and sending any hunters around it flying. Stay out of the attack's radius to prevenet getting thrown.

Furious Clutch - Rajang leans forward with its arms outstretched at its sides in a hugging stance. It then lunges forward and attempts to grab a hunter. If the attack connects, Rajang will violently shake the hunter and then toss them away, rendering them unable to move. Rajang will then begin a menacing, slow walk towards the downed hunter. When it reaches its target, it pummels them with a powerful overhead punch. This follow-up deals immense damage and should be avoided at all costs. Manage your Wirebugs well and use a Wirefall after the beast tosses you away to recover quickly.

        this is one of the easiest monsters after you learn his attack patterns and you know to wack his tail with strong ice weapon.

          first time fighting him today. Rajang doesn’t pull punches and i barely survived his super buff during the SF Exam for my 2nd time. respect the super saiyan demon monkey

            Rajang has been my favourite monster since as long as he's been around, and I was glad to see Iceborne do him justice. Yet seeing him now in Rise, it's rather sad. I hope he's only as slow and weak as he is because it's high rank, and that he'll get his glory back in Master Rank, but I won't hold my breath.
