Attacks With Rocks Or Jars


Kulu Ya Ku skillfully wields rocks or jars to attack. Although it is a generally weak monster on its own, its frontal defense increases whenever it holds onto something, making it quite troublesome to defeat.

Drops Wielded Item When Attacked

Kulu Ya Ku drops the item it's wielding when attacked. Try to hit it from the back or sides to make it drop its weapon.

Part Of MHW & FF14 Collaboration

FFコラボKulu Ya Ku

Final Fantasy 14 had a collaboration with Monster Hunter World wherein a crystal-wielding Kulu Ya Ku appeared. The power of the crystal makes it bigger and stronger. Many hunters came back to try their hand at defeating this monster upon hearing about the FF14 collaboration but got defeated.

Kulu Ya Ku's Attack Patterns


Kulu Ya KuScratch

It delivers an attack through a scratch after it closes the distance. It's a fairly fast attack even for an early-stage monster, so try to evade as soon as you see it start to raise its arm. It also may do this attack in succession.

Weaponize Items

Kulu Ya Ku-rock

Kulu Ya Ku is able to lift rocks or vases right from the ground and hold them as weapons. It utilizes this as a weapon for both attacking as well as to hold it up as a shield to raise its defense. Attack it from the back or at the sides to make it drop the item.
