Arid plains at night
Flames billowing high
This is where she makes her realm
Best to not go nigh
Fire scorching the earth
Lighting up the sky
When her highness sets her eyes on you
It's time to say goodbye

 

MH Rise Rathian Characteristics & Ecology

Fire-breathing female wyverns, also known as the "Queens of the Land." With powerful legs and poison-secreting tails, they hunt mainly on the ground. Sometimes seen preying as a couple, Rathian and Rathalos cooperate well.

 

 

MH Rise Rathian Combat Info

The strong venom in her tail, along with the wide reach of her sweeping attacks, makes maneuvering around the Rathian a dangerous feat. Cutting off her tail can give you quite a bit more breathing room.

Quick Combat Tips

  • Rathian is weakest at its head but its attacks tend to be aimed in that direction. Wait for openings or create one by repeatedly attacking its legs. Applying constant pressure to its legs will knock it down, leaving its head vulnerable for a few seconds.
  • Rathian likes to charge in a straight line repeatedly, trampling hunters along its path. Break its legs to slow down its charge attack, possibly making it trip at the end of the animation.
  • Staying near between Rathian's tail and legs is generally safe as its tail sweep attack will miss you and you will be just outside of or within 1 sidestep's distance of its somersault's hitbox.
  • Rathian's signature Somersault Tailwhip deals a lot of damage and inflicts Poison. While severing its tail tip will not disable its poison, it will significantly reduce the damage dealt by the attack.
  • Rathian can inflict the Fireblight effect with its breath. While its damage is often negligible, when combined with Poison, it can quickly drop a lower-level hunter's health. Dodge several times to remove the Fireblight effect and use Antidotes to remove Poison.

Rathian Attacks & Moveset

Somersault Tailwhip - Rathian's strongest attack is also its most obviously telegraphed. After audible cues from your hunter, Rathian takes flight, locks onto a hunter and performs a backwards somersault, kicking its tail along the arc. This attack deals heavy damage, knocks players away and inflicts Poison, but has a very narrow hitbox that can easily be sidestepped. It will often follow up with a second tailwhip but it will reposition first without landing. Severing Rathian's tail reduces the damage dealt by this move, but does not disable its poisoning ability.

Swooping Attack - When the Rathian is in the air, it will sometimes return to the ground by flying directly at a hunter and ramming its body or legs into them. Deals moderate damage and knocks players away but is highly telegraphed.

Relentless Charge - Rathian's most commonly used attack is a series of mad dashes along a straight line. After one dash, it will turn around and lock back on to its target and charge again. It usually charges 3 times but may charge additional times. Each dash has a deceptively large hitbox and hunters should make sure they are out of the way. Wait for the monster to finish charging before resuming your attack. Its final dash is indicated by a biting animation.

Tail Sweep - Rathian turns its head to its side or rear and then quickly sweeps with its tail while spinning in a 180-degree arc. It will follow up with a second sweep, returning it to its original orientation. The sweep has a rather large radius so be careful when dodging backwards. Remaining between its legs and tail will make this attack miss you while you execute some attacks of your own.

Fire Breath - Rathian raises its head in a small arc from its left side and then unleashes a breath of fire directly in front of it. The flames persist on the ground for a few seconds. This move deals moderate damage but is easily avoided due to its narrow hitbox.

Fireball Barrage - Rathian raises its head in a small arc from its right side and then shoots out 3 fireballs towards different directions in quick succession. First fireball travels straight ahead in front of the monster, the second travels at an angle to its right and the third is shot at an angle to its left. This attack is easily dodged as the pattern is always the same. Simply staying away from Rathian's head trivializes the attack.

Quick Bite - Rathian tilts its head to the side and lunges forward, taking a bite out of hunters. Its bite deals light damage and knocks hunters off their feet but has a relatively small hitbox and can easily be sidestepped.
