At the tail end of a reckless battle...Two beasts find themselves in a place they don't belong.
And when the master of this land appears...
Not even the mightiest attacks can do it any harm.
With its overwhelming strength, it pummels and pins down its prey.
Its endless anger fills the air in the form of a deafening roar.
As it prepared to feast without leaving a single bone.


MH Rise Risen Shagaru Magala Characteristics & Ecology

Risen Shagaru Magala are elder dragons that have found a way to overcome their affliction. By suppressing the Qurio virus, they have gained great strength and new abilities. They release larger quantities of the Frenzy virus, resulting in viral explosions with increased radius. Anything that gets in their way will fall prey to their powerful wingarms. When their anger reaches its peak, they'll enter into their Risen state and their body will begin to glow.

Risen Shagaru Magala is the Risen Variant of Shagaru Magala; an Elder Dragon that has overcome the Qurio affliction, gaining immense power and added movesets. Risen Shagaru Magala has a similar body structure to the standard Shagaru Magala, albeit with a much darker coloration and burn wounds across its body. Like other Risen Elder Dragons, these wounds take on a bright orange glow when the monster enters its Risen state.

Risen Shagaru Magala's biggest difference from its non-Risen counterpart is in the amount of Frenzy Virus it produces, giving its attacks much larger hitboxes and power, with some attacks duplicating their effects, making them much more devastating. Many of its attacks now also leave explosive AoEs.

Quick Combat Tips:

  • As with all Risen Elder Dragons, Risen Shagaru Magala is the most dangerous in its Risen state, making it imperative that you get it out of this state as fast as possible. This is easiest to achieve by staying near its hind legs. While not the most optimum spot for dealing damage, it is the safest as many of the monster's attacks are focused on its frontside. From this position, you can deal a consistent amount of damage to knock it out of the Risen State.
  • Bring lots of Nulberries to manage the Frenzy ailment.


MH Rise Risen Shagaru Magala Attacks & Moveset

Risen Shagaru Magala possesses the same moves as the standard Shagaru Magala and gains a few new moves in its Risen State.

Standard Moves

Lunge - Risen Shagaru Magala rears up very briefly and then lunges forward a short distance, attempting to bite its target. Dodge to the side, away from its head.

Side Tackle - Risen Shagaru Magala violently moves sideways, using the length of its body to tackle hunters in the way.

Wingarm Smash - Risen Shagaru Magala raises one of its wingarms, dashes forward a very short distance while slamming down on the ground. Dodge by sidestepping towards the direction of the other arm or under the attack.

Double Arm Smash - Risen Sagaru Magala stands upright on its hind legs and then smashes both wingarms down at once, releasing pillars of frenzy in front of it. Avoid the front of the monster and quickly reposition near its side as it comes down.

Assault Dive - Risen Shagaru Magala flies up and divebombs a target while swiping at them with a wingarm. Turns 180 degrees upon landing.

Frenzy Breath - Fires Frenzy projectiles which travel in a straight line close to the ground. Typically expels 3 projectiles in a staggered fashion. Projectiles travel very quickly but have a small hitbox and can easily be sidestepped or dodged.

Lateral Frenzy Burst - Risen Shagaru Magala releases a ball of frenzy from its mouth towards the ground or a target. Upon impact with the ground, it explodes multiple times laterally. Keep watch of the initial ball release and move backwards to avoid the explosions. You can also dodge under the ball before it impacts the ground to close the distance to the monster.

Central Frenzy Burst - Similar to the Lateral Frenzy Burst, but the explosions travel in a straight line instead. Note that the monster will sometimes perform both moves one after the other.

Frenzy Beam - Risen Shagaru Magala hops backwards and then expels a beam of Frenzy in a straight line in front of it. Highly telegraphed and easy enough to avoid by running or dodging to the side.

Sweeping Frenzy Beam - Risen Shagaru Magala stands on its hind legs while charging up a frenzy breath before firing and sweeping a beam across the battlefield. The area under the monster's head and torso is generally safe during this move. Further away, you will need to perform an emergency evade to dodge the beam as it sweeps by you.


Risen Moves

Frenzy Wingarm Smash - Its Wingarm Smash move now has a longer distance and is followed by an exploding frenzy pillar that has a deceptively large hitbox. Always dodge to the side of its other arm when Risen Shagaru Magala is in its Risen state.

Frenzy Wingarm Combo -  Risen Shagaru Magala hops back a short distance, raising one wingarm as Frenzy energy emanates from it. It then slams the wingarm down, releasing a pillar of frenzy traveling outward from the point of impact. It then follows up with 2-3 more such slams. Continually moves towards the monster's sides during the combo to avoid the attack and get some hits in during each slam's slow wind-up.

Cascading Breath - Risen Shagaru Magala breathes on the ground, releasing two dark purple clouds that travel along the ground in a V formation. Each cloud trail is followed by cascading explosions. The monster will hop to the side as soon as it releases the breath, and then perform a second breath so watch it closely. It's best not to remain in the center of the V as the explosions have a deceptively large hitbox. Instead, keep moving out towards the sides of the clouds.

Frenzy Cage Burst (Ultimate Move) - Risen Shagaru Magala flies to the air while forming a large circle of frenzy pillars around its target. After a very brief delay, the pillars will swirl and converge, culminating in a very large explosion that will cart hunters in one hit. Once the pillars form, you must immediately get out of the circle as getting hit by a single pillar will leave you open for the final explosion. Watch out for the stray pillars that form outside of the circles as well.

      Yeah this guy is a cheap little *****. When he does into his relentless repeat attacks that have insane range and AOE, there's just about nothing you can do. I beat him for the... like whatever crazy version of him is part of a cap raise or whatever. The one that's even more OP than the normal risen shag. Since then, I'm almost to the point where I can do a special investigation on him. It baffles me how I beat him the other times, though. I think the only way I can do it now without really getting good and skilling up is to go gunlance and play really carefully.

      I can JUST about hack it on longsword, but yeah... I'm not quite there yet. Completely bullshit boss though, really.

        Can't face tank this one, will get afflicted with frenzy and take increased damage. Time to get good and smack it instead of tank builds.
