Beware Of Poison Attacks Via Tail

Rathian尻尾毒

Rathian's tail has poison, so in the event that you are hit by tail attacks such as Somersault, you'll surely get poisoned. It's dangerous to get repeatedly attacked this way, so make sure to heal yourself using antidotes.

Aim For Its Legs From The Side

Rathian Legs

Rathian can be quite a powerful monster if you're not used to fighting flying wyverns. Fire breath, rush, and somersault are attacks that it delivers forward so position yourself at its side and attack its legs. Once you've made it lower to the ground, you can then aim for its head.

Move Quickly As It Pivots

Rathian also launch powerful attacks through pivoting movements. Adjust accordingly to stay on its side. Despite being a plain attack strategy, it guarantees stable damage.

Lots Of Attack Openings When Not Angry

Calm Rathian

Once you get used to attacking Rathian, find openings to aggressively attack its head. A good time is when it's not angry and right after rush or somersault while it's taking a breath.

Spews Fire When Angry

You can figure out if Rathian is angry by looking at its mouth. If you see fire spewing out of its mouth, that means it's angry and you'll have few opportunities to attack well, making it quite dangerous.

Best To Attack While Tired

Tired Rathian

You'll know Rathian is tired when you notice that it has slower motions and exhibits shortness of breath. It also moves slower A good evidence of its tiredness is when it starts to drool from the mouth, so make sure to utilize this moment to attack!

Utilize Flash Pod (Wirebug)

Flash Pod

A flash of light is generated from the Wirebug move Flash Pod. You can stun Rathian this way and limit its movement, so make sure to utilize this move.

Rathian's Attack Patterns

Avoid Somersault By Moving Side-To-Side
Distance Yourself During As It Takes A Breath
Avoid Fire Breath Via Sides Of Face
Attack & Run With Rush Attacks
Rush Attacks Even While Airborne

Avoid Somersault By Moving Side-To-Side

Somersault is an attack that is preceded by 1 turnaround before it hits its enemy with poison with its tail. This precursory movement is taken on the ground, but the attack itself is done quickly while midair. You won't get hit if you avoid it by moving side-to-side.

Attacks In Succession When Angry

If Rathian attacks with somersault while angry, it does not settle down to the ground right after, but rather attacks in succession while midair. Be careful not to aim for its head in hopes that it will lower itself to the ground.

Distance Yourself During As It Takes A Breath

Powerful fire breaths are delivered by retracting its neck, so use this as a chance to move yourself toward the sides of its head.

Avoid Fire Breath Via Sides Of Face

Rathian Breath

Fire breath is a move that is shot straight at the front. Consecutive fire breath involves 3 attacks in succession, giving ample opportunity to attack it from the sides of its head. When you notice it spreading its wings and start to breathe fire as it lifts its head, quickly move to its side.

Attack & Run With Rush Attacks

Rathian Rush

An attack used while dashing. Although a good way to attack, it may counter while it's angry, so stay vigilant.

Rush Attacks Even While Airborne

Rush Airborne

May attack using rush as it lowers itself whie aflight. There are very few chances to attack while airborne, so we don't recommend forcing attacks this way. If attacking this way is difficult, simply run and avoid attacks while it's airborne.
