New Info Revealed In Digital Event

Khezu Face

During the January 7th Digital Event, we were able to spot glimpses of Khezu moving about. Its characteristic eerie and off-putting face was visible - the graphical update is sure to make this monster even more unsettling in MHR!

Appears On Frosty Islands

Frosty Islands

Khezu will appear in the Frosty Islands locale in Monster Hunter Rise. It also appeared in colder climates in previous games, and particularly liked caves. It would lie in wait, clinging to the roof of a cave, while waiting for its prey.

Has Powerful Electric Attack

Electric Attack

Khezu's most characteristic feature is its ability to use thunder attacks. It runs electricity through its whole body and uses it as a breath. This breath is extremely dangerous and can paralyze you. However, these attacks also provide you with a window of opportunity to get some attacks in!

Also Has Variants


There are also different variants of Khezu to be found in past games. The one listed above is a Red Khezu, a variant which has more developed and varied electrical attacks! Its neck also seems to be longer.

Has No Background Music

The Khezu is somewhat unique in that you won't hear any music while fighting it. Also, you won't be able to do an emergency evade either!

Has A White Motif

Khezu armor

Khezu's armor focuses on white as its primary color and has the consistency of skin. There are hints of red throughout the set as well. The hilt of the Insect Glaive also appears to be partly in the shape of a Khezu tail!

Insect Glaive Has Electrical Affinity


The Insect Glaive seemed to emit electricity on hit - to us this is a dead giveaway that the weapon is indeed related to Khezu!

Breakable Parts
Head, Torso

Fire, Head, & Neck Are Weak Points

In terms of elements, Khezu is primarily weak against fire - we don't recommend using any other elements against it! Its weak points are its head and neck. Its next weakest point is its stomach, but that can be really hard to hit, so it's best to just aim for the head/neck.

Khezu Main Attack Patterns

Lightning Breath

Lightning Breath

Khezu releases a wave of lightning that sort of crawls across the ground. There are several variations to this move, including ones where it shoots the breath in three different directions, so be careful. In past games, being hit by this guaranteed paralysis, so you'll want to avoid that at all costs.

Neck Extension


Khezu extends its neck outwards and bites at you. The move's range and mobility seemed to have increased, and the surges the attack generates seem to have become more intense. If you're used to this monster from previous games, these changes may throw you for a loop so be careful!

A Dangerous Roar

Khezu Roar

Khezu will try to incapacitate you with its roar and then hit you with its breath attack! This is its standard attack pattern/combo, so you should be ready to deal with this by bringing items such as earplugs.
