New Monster In Rise
The Bishaten is an entirely new monster debuting in Monster Hunter Rise. This monster appears to be based on the Japanese mythical creature, the Tengu. This creature can be found in the Flooded Forest!
Characteristic Tail & Wings
The Bishaten has a characteristically powerful tail, which it can use to support its body and stand on! It also happens to have wings which resemble those of a flying squirrel.
Bishaten Armor Appearance?
In trailers for the game, we were able to spot a man who was dressed in an outfit that looked a lot like that of a Tengu. We feel this armor is very likely to be the Bishaten set! This looks to be a set that emphasizes free mobility and speed.
Attack Patterns Confirmed So Far
Bishaten throws a large amount of persimmons in your general direction. If you look closely, you'll see that some persimmons are poisonous, while others appear to be explosive. It's likely that getting hit with these will leave you with some sort of status ailment.
Flash Of Light
Bishaten grabs a persimmon with its tail and takes a moment to prepare before slamming it at the ground. This will cause a kind of flashbang effect. The tell for this attack is rather long, so you shouldn't have much trouble dodging this if you spot it coming.
Using its highly evolved tail, the Bishaten lashes out in front of itself. This attack is often used immediately after the flashbang! This attack seems to do a high amount of damage.
After standing on its tail, Bishaten spreads its wings and starts charging while spinning. Before it uses this attack you'll be able to see it charging up for it. We think it might be possible to disable this attack if you destroy the Bishaten's tail!
Tail Stand & Observe
The Bishaten stands on its tail and begisn to look at you intently. At first glance this appears to leave it entirely open for attacks, but after some time it begins to jump towards you. It's important to watch for exactly when it's about to pounce.
