Aggressive & Powerful Gold Lion

Rajang gold color

▲Rajang from previous games

One of Rajang's most prominent features is that shines golden when Enraged. This is where it's gotten its other name, "Gold Lion." It is known for its power and aggressiveness, and although a fanged beast, its strength can be likened to ancient dragons.

Rajang Variant

Furious Rajang

Rajang has a variant called "Furious Rajang." Unlike its normal counterpart, its body is always golden and its strength is tenfold.

How To Beat Rajang

Bring Thunder Resistant Gear Or Nulberries
Aim At Head & Arms When Not Enraged
Aim For Its Body & Tail When Enraged

Bring Thunder Resistant Gear Or Nulberries

You'll be afflicted with an elemental effect if you get hit by Rajang's lightning, so try to prepare your lightning defenses beforehand.

Aim At Head & Arms When Not Enraged

Rajang's weak points when not Enraged are its head and arms. It's dangerous to aim for its head though, so it's best to just aim for its arms. It's good to note that the damage compounds, so try to chip at its head and arms to destroy it. When you're down and are near a wall, you can stand up again using the wall and counter-attack.

Aim For Its Body & Tail When Enraged

When Rajang gets Enraged, its arms which are normally weak harden and become difficult to break. With that, staying in front of it becomes more dangerous. During this state, it's best to aim for its tail instead and wait for it to go back to its normal state.

Rajang Attack Patterns

Ground Slam

Rajang attack
Click to Enlarge

One of Rajang's biggest attacks and is only used while Enraged. Shock waves are generated after this attack and has tremendous power. Avoid by moving behind it or rolling with the flow of the impact.



Breathes out light beams forward. Try to go to its side to attack during this time. It seems that the beams will be thicker in MHR, so be careful not to pass through the front.

Arial Breath

Airial Breath

Breathes out light beams upward into the air. Although just seen while in Wyvern Riding, it's safe to assume that Rajang itself can use it to attack its foes.

Double Lariats

Swings both arms and moves forward. Watch out for the tremor at the end of its attack.

Spinning Attack

Bends the upper body and spins. Avoid by dodging to the side.

Kelbi Step

Jumps to the side like Kelbi. The range is long enough to capture gunners.
