The Monster Hunter Frontier series hold many monsters not found in the main series, and as such they are kept separate from the main monsters page to keep it from getting any bigger than it needs to be. Subspecies are listed together with their main species.

If you don't see a monster listed here, it's most likely a monster that debuted in the main series, in which case you can find it here.

Additionally: Some of the names in this page use an unofficial English translation of its official Japanese Name. The name is obtained either by using Japanese translating programs or through previous existing English equivalent terms in the game. The names will be used until Capcom reveals the official English names for them.

Halk

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/a5c1657740a3f124fbb1743015bbe5f2.png
Appearances: Frontier

First introduced in Frontier Forward 2, Halks are small, tamable Flying Wyverns that can be trained to aid Hunters during quests, much like the Palicoes from the main series.


  • Attack Animal: They serve as this to Mezeporta hunters, attacking anything on their masters' command.
  • Breath Weapon: Their primary method of attack (also see Elemental Powers below).
  • Divergent Character Evolution: Literally played out. Halks will eventually change in appearance, coloration and abilities depending on how you train and feed them, much like the Insect Glaive's Neopteron.
  • Elemental Powers: Halks can be customized to use elemental breath weapons and defenses depending on the type of food they are regularly given.
  • Familiar: Serves as a non-magical version to hunters, basically being a wyvern version of a falconer's bird.
  • Flight: They're almost always hovering in the air and only come down when attacking, or after receiving a powerful blow that knocks them out of the sky. They can even be commanded to airlift their hunter handlers towards different areas of the map by using special items.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Their breath attacks manifest as long, narrow beams of energy.
  • Made of Iron: Like the Felyne Comrades / Palicoes, they can't truly die; they'll just go out of commission for a while until they recover.
  • Standard Status Effects: In addition to possessing elemental breath attacks, they can also be customized to use Poison, Paralysis and/or Sleep-based moves.

    Lynians 

Uruki

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8d45212e6486c705ab93b994c276ad18.png
Appearances: Frontier G Genuine onwards

Chimpanzee-like creatures that inhabit the Flowery Field. Unlike many monsters, they like hunters, and will cooperate with them to bring down large monsters.


  • Brats with Slingshots: While not exactly children, they use slingshots as weapons.
  • Combat Medic: They help hunters by healing them as well as attacking large monsters.
  • Item Caddy: They will carve fallen monsters and drop a shiny for hunters to collect when quests are completed.
  • Man-Eating Plant: They protect themselves by growing these around their territory. Unfortunately for them, these plants are also the favorite food of Forokururu, which puts their livelihoods in danger whenever the Bird Wyvern appears.
  • Martial Pacifist: They prefer to avoid conflict, but will relentlessly attack any large monsters that invade their territory.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: They have the faces of owls (minus the beaks) and the bodies of chimpanzees.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: They only attack when provoked, and are friendly towards hunters.

Appearances: Frontier Season 9 onwards

Goat-like creatures who inhabit the Highland, Erupe are skittish, and are wary of large monsters. That said, they are friendly, and are curious towards hunters. Perform an action in front of them, and they will mimic it.

    Bird Wyverns 

Hypnocatrice / Bright Hypnocatrice / Azure Hypnocatrice / Falnock

Sleeper Bird / Blue Sleep Bird / Pale Sleep Bird / Thunder Bird

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/monster_hunter_hypnocatrice_7600.png
Appearances (Normal): Frontier 1.0 onwards / 2 / Freedom 2 / Freedom Unite
Appearances (Bright): Frontier 1.5 onwards
Appearances (Azure): Frontier 3.0 onwards
Appearances (Falnock): Frontier G onwards

A relatively small True Bird Wyvern which actually looks more like a bird than others of its subtype. Sporting orange feathers and and a nasty narcotic spit, Hypnocatrices are relatively pacifistic unless provoked. Frontier 1.5 features a purple-feathered subtype, and Frontier 3.0 a blue-plumed subtype, each stronger than the last. An even stronger relative with green skin and yellow feathers named Falnock was introduced in Frontier G.


  • Canon Immigrant: One of two monsters from Frontier to have appeared in the main console series, alongside Lavasioth.
  • Dance Battler: All of them attack in a jumpy, erratic dance-like fashion.

  • Feathered Fiend: They're covered in feathers, and will become aggressive upon provocation.
  • Funny Afro: Falnock's mane looks like an afro.

  • Shock and Awe: Falnock.
  • Technical Pacifist: Hypnocatrice isn't very aggressive or territorial, and would rather sedate its attackers and run away instead of killing them.

Forokururu

Flower Phoenix Bird

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/4210613805aa123cfd7f18b0a52ffa26.png
Appearances: Frontier G Genuine onwards

A colorful Bird Wyvern that resides in the Flower Field. By sucking the nectar of various flowers, it can use a wide range of abilities. So far, it is the only monster capable of inflicting the Dark status.


  • Arch-Enemy: It serves as this to the Uruki as it feeds on the plants they use for self-defense.
  • Cowardly Lion: While normally timid, it overcomes its fear when it feeds on nectar, which is due to it gaining new abilities from it.
  • Feathered Fiend: Most of its body is covered in feathers, and while normally timid, it becomes aggressive after feeding on nectar.
  • Healing Shiv: If it sucks up green nectar, it can heal hunters.
  • Interface Screw: Can cause the screen to turn black if it inflicts the Dark status on you.
  • Leitmotif: Battle / Forokururu
  • Playing with Fire: If it sucks up red nectar, it can use fire-based attacks.
  • Standard Status Effects: Can inflict the Poison, Paralysis, Sleep, and Soiled effects onto you.

Appearances: Frontier G9 onwards

A phoenix-like Bird Wyvern introduced in Frontier G9. Toridcless can gather solar energy and convert it into lightning. It is said to be both mild-mannered and arrogant.


    Flying Wyverns 

Unknown

Black Flying Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1401f12ffb5b82d7fb220115f193ccd5.png
Appearances: Frontier Forward 1 onwards

A mysterious Flying Wyvern introduced in Frontier Forward 1.0. Due to there being no information whatsoever regarding its existence, the Guild has classified it as an "Unknown" species. It bears semblance to a Rathian, thus leading players to nickname it "Black Rathian", although it has minor design differences when looked at closely.


Zerureusu

Bright Field Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1f64340f19015e2a4e39bf6a70cc9729.png
Appearances: Frontier G3 onwards

Little is known about this monster, other than that it resides in the Tower and uses the Light element. It bears semblance to a Rathalos, but has minor design differences when looked at closely.


Espinas / Espinas Subspecies / Espinas Rare Species / Meraginasu

Thorn Wyvern / Brown Thorn Wyvern / White Thorn Wyvern / Black Drill Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/286010c57f27eb3ad33df94ef57d05f9.png
Appearances (Espinas): Frontier Season 2 onwards
Appearances (Subspecies): Frontier Season 2.5 onwards
Appearances (Rare Species): Frontier Season 5 onwards
Appearances (Meraginasu): Frontier G3 onwards

A thorny Flying Wyvern first introduced in Frontier Season 2, Espinas is unusually passive; it is often found sleeping, and even when disturbed, it barely responds to attacks. However, if enough damage is dealt, it becomes a lot more brutal, using quick charges and toxic fireballs to defend itself. Frontier Season 2.5 introduces a brown subspecies with orange spikes that resides in the Tower and Gorge, and Frontier Season 5 introduces a white subspecies with purple spikes that resides in the Great Forest Peak, each stronger than the last. Frontier G3 introduces an even stronger relative with black scales and orange spikes named Meraginasu.


  • Beware the Nice Ones: The Espinas is, for a wyvern, a real Gentle Giant. Not only is it one of the few monsters which will it not attack you on sight, but it will continue to ignore you as you attack it. It'll just sleep and walk around minding it's own business, only hurting you if you get too close to it's feet or tail as it moves around. However, keep hitting it and it will go berserk and wail on you with lots of powerful and swift attacks. After a few minutes of being left alone, it will calm back down. According to Word of God, it's capable of defeating Elder Dragons, and is listed as an Elder Dragon-level monster due to its sheer power.
  • Casting a Shadow: Meraginasu uses the Darkness element, which is a combination of Ice and Dragon.
  • Disability Immunity: Meraginasu is blind, and thus is immune to Flash Bombs.
  • Glass Cannon: When enraged, they trade their amazingly high defense for offense.
  • Gratuitous Spanish/Meaningful Name: Espina means "thorn" in Spanish. So, basically, its name is Thorns.
  • No-Sell: Meraginasu is immune to Flash Bombs due to it being blind. It is also immune to Sonic Bombs due to them having a different sound frequency.
  • Leitmotif: Battle / Meraginasu
  • Playing with Fire: It uses poisonous fireballs to defend itself.
  • Poisonous Person: Its fireballs are toxic.
  • Stone Wall: They have high defense, and will not attack. That is, until they get enraged.

Berukyurosu / Doragyurosu

Dance Thunder Wyvern / Obscure Thunder Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ae40de6ba2631b197df047270540015c.png
Appearances (Berukyurosu): Frontier Season 4 onwards
Appearances (Doragyurosu): Frontier Season 8 onwards

A Flying Wyvern first introduced in Frontier Season 4, it is characterized by its long quills and electric attacks. It is also highly intelligent, able to learn the attack patterns of hunters and counter them. Season 8 introduces a white-haired subspecies that can use the Dragon element, named Doragyurosu.


Gurenzeburu

Barbarian Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bad7c1abea6378d183ef5fcfc0829e4f.png
Appearances: Frontier Season 9 onwards

A Flying Wyvern first introduced in Frontier Season 9, Gurenzeburu inhabits the Highland. It primarily uses its horn and water blasts to attack. Despite its reputation as a violent brute, it has been known to protect the Highland's herbivores from predators.


Anorupatisu

Violent Saw Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8002886c776ad2e2705027e193227856.png
Appearances: Frontier G2 onwards

A Flying Wyvern with characteristics of a carpenter shark, Anorupatisu uses its long, barbed horn to help it swim through thick ice. It primarily attacks by gouging opponents with its horn and blasting them with ice. When low on health, it uses the Dragon element to enhance its attacks.


Pariapuria

Swallowing Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/a5db70c52ccaa732c61bc2068def4a90.png
Appearances: Frontier Season 5 onwards

An amphibious Flying Wyvern that primarily attacks by regurgitating food. It is gluttonous, gorging itself until it pukes. Unlike many monsters, it does not have a Rage Mode. Its saliva determines what kind of meat it wants; white means Raw, purple means Poisoned, blue means Drugged, and yellow means Tainted. Feeding it the right type of meat will make it stop attacking, making it easier to hunt. However, it will become more aggressive if fed the wrong type of meat.


  • Achilles' Heel: Feeding it the right kind of meat will make it calm down and stop attacking, making it easier to hunt.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Feeding it the wrong type of meat will make it throw a temper tantrum and violently thrash about.
    • It also does not like being attacked when its belly is full, as doing so will make it unable to digest the food it ate. Making it flinch in this state will make it puke on you in retaliation.
  • Acquired Poison Immunity: It is immune to the Poison, Paralysis and Sleep conditions due to it eating large amounts of toxic food.
  • Big Eater: Its defining trait is its gluttony, with it constantly eating everything in sight until it vomits.
  • Extreme Omnivore: They will eat anything they can find.
  • Fartillery: The Thirsty variant introduced in Frontier G9 can propel itself forward by farting.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: The colour of its saliva determines what kind of meat it wants; blue means Drugged, yellow means Tainted, purple means Poisoned, and white means Raw.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: It is considered to be weak for its rank, and the battle becomes a complete joke if it's fed the right meat, since it doesn't even attack; it just walks around, letting you hit. Even the Hardcore version is weak when compared to the others. Despite this, it can be a credible threat at times; some have been found with Gold Rajang pelts in their stomachs, of all things.
  • Making a Splash: Its barf attacks deal Water damage.
  • Mighty Glacier: It hits hard, but is very slow.
  • Nightmare Face: Supremacy Pariapuria looks pretty unsettling, to say the least.
  • Standard Status Effects: Depending on what kind of meat it ate, Pariapuria's puke can inflict either the Poison, Paralysis, or Sleep effects, as well as the Soiled effect. It can also throw boulders that stun whoever they hit.
  • Took a Level in Badass:
    • While it is weak for its rank, the Hardcore version is certainly an improvement of the original; it is harder to trick into eating meat, can use barf attacks without having to be fed, and gains two new suction attacks that can overwhelm unsuspecting hunters.
    • Thought regular Pariapuria and the Hardcore version were too easy? Try fighting the Supremacy version. Not only does it gain an insane boost to its power and speed, it also receives four new attacks that will wreck unprepared hunters: a sliding side bite that throws rocks around followed by a powerful charge, a barf beam that sucks in nearby hunters followed by a giant slime ball, jumping into the air, producing wind that will knock you over, then slamming down onto you, and a near death flying attack that is surprisingly fast and powerful.
  • Vomit Indiscretion Shot: This occurs whenever it uses barf attacks.
  • Warm-Up Boss: Pariapuria serves as an introduction to unique mechanics found in high-level monsters; while it is large and hits hard, it is very slow, lacks range outside of its boulder throw and barf attack, has no Rage Mode (though it does get angry if fed the wrong meat), and can be rendered a non-threat by feeding it the meat it wants. The colour of its saliva easily determines what kind of meat it wants as well; blue means Drugged, yellow means Tainted, purple means Poisoned, and white means Raw. The Hardcore and Supremacy versions aren't so easy to beat, however.

Dyuragaua / Mi Ru

Ice Fox Wyvern / Black Fox Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/96752981a4ed917229856260a7f04f79.png
Appearances (Dyuragaua): Frontier Season 8 onwards
Appearances (Mi Ru): Frontier G2 onwards

A fox-like Flying Wyvern with control over ice, Dyuragaua was a recently discovered species seen residing in an hidden area of the Tower called the Nest Hole, suggesting that it had avoided human contact for a long time. Frontier G2 introduces an even stronger relative with black skin and white crystals covering its body named Mi Ru.


Odibatorasu

Cannon Rock Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/82e91edfcaf12e986b091541ab6abbf3.png
Appearances: Frontier Forward 5 onwards

The sandy counterpart of Akantor and Ukanlos, Odibatorasu first appeared in Monster Hunter Frontier Forward 5. It is a massive, flightless Flying Wyvern that expels sand from the cannon-like structure on its back to attack hunters.


  • Acrofatic: It can leap pretty far despite its girth.
  • Backpack Cannon: Has a large cannon-like structure on its back that expels sand.
  • Call-Forward: In Portable 3rd, there was a book that described a close relative of Ukanlos called the Third God that lived in a desert. Come Frontier Forward 5, and we have Odibatorasu, a desert-faring relative of Akantor and Ukanlos who is also known as the Sand God.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Fires large balls of sand from its Backpack Cannon and sandy beams from its mouth.
  • Leitmotif: Battle / Odibatorasu
  • Mighty Glacier: The normal variant is both immensely powerful and durable, but moves slowly. Its Supermacy version, on the other hand...
  • Non-Indicative Name: It is flightless despite being classified as a Flying Wyvern.

Hyujikiki

Needle Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/de6dbefd6b2d37192f82b30bd2b1a7b5.png
Appearances: Frontier G onwards

A jackal-like Flying Wyvern first introduced in Frontier G, Hyujikiki primarily attacks by flinging spikes and shooting blasts of wind. When near death, an electrical aura surrounds it and its spikes gain the ability to poison, paralyze and tranquilize hunters all at once.


Poborubarumu

Creation Sound Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ed487b31986c439e90286ebdfd03e913.png
Appearances: Frontier G6 onwards

A whale-like Flying Wyvern introduced in Frontier G6, Poborubarumu primarily attacks by using weaponized sound. It can also use sound to heal itself, increase its physical strength, and harden its body to defend itself. These sounds have strange effects on hunters, making them go into a state of delirium. It is highly territorial, even going as far as to start territorial wars with other monsters. This monster is the very reason Hyujikiki developed its spikes.


  • An Ice Person/Making a Splash: It uses the Kanade element, which is a combination of Water and Ice.
  • Brown Note: Its sounds inflict the Confusion status, which immobilizes hunters and makes them randomly do the Laughter, Dance or Ballerina gestures.
  • Dreadful Musician: Hunters are often requested to hunt it because of the horrible music it makes. Its music is so bad that it can even drive its listeners insane.
  • Extreme Omnivore: It will eat anything it can fit into its large mouth.
  • Hell Is That Noise: Small monsters have been known to run when they hear the horrid noises it makes, as they're a sign it's going to eat them. Humans also despise the noises; they are so horrible that they are the main reason hunters are requested to hunt it.
  • Informed Attribute: Not Poborubarumu itself, but the barnacle attached to its tail; the barnacle is described as being parasitic (and is even known as the Hollow Parasite) despite being helpful towards the monster, even though parasites benefit from symbiotic relationships at the expense of their hosts. It even heals the monster when in effect, indicating that their relationship is more mutualistic than the barnacle's description makes it out to be.
  • Magic Dance: Its dances determine what kind of sound it will play; it will use its head to play the power buffing sound, its arms to play the defense boosting sound, and its tail to play the healing sound. At G Rank, it will use all three parts at once, providing all three buffs at the same time.
  • Magic Music: It can produce sounds that increase its power and defense as well as healing it.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: It uses weaponized sound to attack hunters.
  • Mighty Glacier: Not particularly fast, but it hits hard.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Both its jaws and the inside of its mouth contain clusters of sharp teeth.
  • No Cure for Evil: Averted, it has a healing dance.
  • Shockwave Stomp: Its stomps cause shockwaves, complete with damaging rupture lines.
  • The Dreaded: You know you're feared when even a fearsome predator like Hyujikiki has to develop deadly spikes in order to protect itself from you.
  • The Symbiote: It has a drum-like barnacle attached to its tail that allows it to play healing music.

Varusaburosu

Flame Horn Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/varudiablos.png
Appearances: Frontier G6 onwards

A red, two-horned Flying Wyvern very similar to the main series's Diablos who dwells the Battleground and uses the Fire element against the hunters.


  • In a Single Bound: Varusaburosu has a jumping stomp similar to Deviljho, which it follows up with a shoulder charge.
  • Leitmotif: Battle / Varusaburosu.
  • Magma Man: Varusaburosu's orange glowing body parts invokes this.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: One similar to its Diablos and Monoblos's cousins. Varusaburosu's roar even causes the ground underneath to erupt.
  • Playing with Fire: Varusaborusu has several Fire-element abilities, owing to having adapted to its volcanic habitat. These include erupting lava gouts similar to Akantor, explosive shockwaves, a flaming dash attack and a massive wave of fire that expands outwards.
  • Power Glows: Varusaburosu's horns and plates glow yellow orange, which intensifies to bright purple when it eats volcanic cacti.
  • Power-Up Food: Varusaburosu's favorite food, a volcanic cactus pear, causes it to instantly enter Rage Mode and gives it new attacks when eaten. Players must therefore keep the cactus pears away from it as long as possible, which can be done by picking it up and kicking it towards different parts of the battleground.
  • Shockwave Stomp: Varusaburosu has several variants, including one with its tail that causes magma to spew forth from the ground.
  • Stock Animal Diet: Varusaburosu is especially fond of a cactus species that grows in volcanic regions, which becomes a major mechanic in the battle against him.
  • Tunnel King: Like the Diablos, it can dig through the ground quite easily. It even creates a burning rupture line when he does so, which doubles as an attack.

Gureadomosu

Water Fortress Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gureadomosu.png
Appearances: Frontier G7

A massive Flying Wyvern very similar to the main series's Gravios with control over the Water element, said to be an ancient species who primarily inhabits underground desert lakes, but has recently resurfaced in search of new water sources.


Diorekkusu

Thunder Roaring Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/diorekkusu.png
Appearances: Frontier G Genuine onwards

A close relative of the main series's Tigrex who lives at the highest point of the Great Forest, notable for being able to use Thunder element powers.


  • Glass Cannon: Diorekkusu isn't as resilient as regular Tigrex due to having a softer shell, but makes up for it with its enhanced strength and powerful electric attacks. It can take this further through the use of its electric powers; by charging electricity through its body, it increases its power and speed at the cost of defense. That said, it can use magnetism to attract ores to form body armor, which fixes the issue.
  • Leitmotif: Battle / Diorekkusu
  • Lightning Bruiser: A Diorekkusu with its armor intact is quick, strong, and tough. When the armor is destroyed or worn down by charging electricity through its body, it becomes a Glass Cannon.
  • Shock and Awe/ Magnetism Manipulation: Utilizes electricity and magnetism in battle.

Egyurasu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/frontiergen_egyurasu_render_001.png
Appearances: Frontier G10

Soldier-like Flying Wyverns introduced in Frontier. They act as servants for the Guanzorumu.


Zenaserisu

Crackling Water Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/frontiergen_zenaserisu_render_001.png
Appearances: Frontier Z

A bat-like Flying Wyvern covered in unique blades called Condensed Blades that allow it to spray foes with water from any given direction. Like Doragyurosu before it, it can use its tentacles to rip the earth apart and fling boulders at enemies.


  • Bat Out of Hell: It has a bat-like design and is a highly aggressive creature.
  • Combat Tentacles: It can use its tentacles to grab hunters and pull boulders out of the ground.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: It can use its tentacles to pull boulders out of the ground and fling them at hunters.
  • Glass Cannon: Although it has a large health pool and has highly damaging attacks, its defenses are frail.
  • Making a Splash: It can use water attacks.
  • Spikes of Doom: Its whole body is covered in Condensed Blades that allow it to spray enemies with water from any direction.

Bogabadorumu

Explosive Mist Wyvern

Appearances: Frontier ZZ

A giant, whale-like Flying Wyvern whose body is covered in tubes that release explosive gas. It is the first Zenith monster that isn't a stronger variant of a pre-existing monster.


  • Fat Bastard: While not evil (it's an animal, after all), it's very ill-tempered, and has a girthy frame to go with it.
  • Ground Punch: Some of its attacks involve it slamming the ground in front of it with its arms, which produces explosions.
  • Logical Weakness: The tubes on its arms and tail release volatile mist that produces massive explosions. Naturally, breaking the former and severing the latter will prevent them from producing the mist.
  • Mighty Glacier: It's sluggish, but has a massive health pool and devastating attacks.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: The tubes on its arms and tail release explosive gas that inflicts Blastblight upon contact.

    Piscine Wyverns 

Lavasioth / Red Lavasioth / Aruganosu / Goruganosu

Lava Wyvern / Crimson Lava Wyvern / Silver Piscine Wyvern / Gold Piscine Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mhw_lavasioth_render_001.png
Appearances (Normal): Frontier 1.0 onwards / 2 / Freedom 2 / Freedom Unite / Generations / XX / World
Appearances (Red): Frontier 1.5 onwards
Appearances (Aruganosu and Goruganosu): Frontier Forward 5 onwards

Magma-swimming Piscine Wyverns that look like a crossbreed between a coelacanth and a Plesioth. Frontier 1.5 introduces a more powerful red-scaled version (actually females during mating season). Frontier Forward 5 introduces two even stronger relatives named Aruganosu and Goruganosu.


  • An Ice Person: Aruganosu.
  • Canon Immigrant: One of two monsters from Frontier to have appeared in the main console series, alongside Hypnocatrice.
  • Charged Attack: In World it has a charged magma ball attack. Getting hit by it can easily one-shot a Hunter.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Aruganosu is silver while Goruganosu is gold.
  • Cutscene Power to the Max: Its intro in Freedom Unite shows it instantly killing an Apceros and a Vespoid with a magma ball and a tail swipe, respectively. Both creatures don't die as easily to these attacks in-game as they do in said intro.
  • Determinator: Just like the Tigrex, it just won't give up after its ground-swim misses you. It simply turns around and makes an even faster dash for you.
  • Dual Boss: Aruganosu and Goruganosu are never seen without each other, and can work together to pull off devastating tag moves.
  • Lava is Boiling Kool-Aid: For it, at least.
  • Magma Man: Lavasioth and Red Lavasioth.
  • Mighty Glacier: Have good strength and durability, but are lacking in speed.
  • Playing with Fire: Lavasioth and Red Lavasioth.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni To Jyuratodus' Blue Oni in World. Lavasioth are hostile on sight and will attack unprovoked, while Jyuratodus will only attack once provoked. Lavasioth is also the fire to Jyuratodus's water.
  • Rivals Team Up: Aruganosu and Goruganosu are always seen working together despite being rivals. If it wasn't for Word of God, you probably wouldn't know they were rivals.
  • Shock and Awe: Goruganosu.
  • Standard Status Effects: Aruganosu can paralyze you, and Goruganosu can put you to sleep.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: World's incarnation of Lavasioth has an armor mechanic, similar to Agnaktor.

    Carapaceons 

Akura Vashimu / Akura Jebia

Tail Crystal Scorpion

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akura_jebia_9114.png
Appearances: Frontier

Enourmous scorpion-like crustaceans covered in crystals.


  • All-Natural Gem Polish: Their bodies are coated in crystals.
  • Auto Cannibalism: They will eat their own severed tails to regain stamina.
  • Bloody Murder: If Akura Jebia's tail is cut off, it can shoot crystallized blood at hunters.
  • Drunken Master: They have an attack in which they will swipe at hunters in a drunken manner before falling down. They will only do this when their tails have been cut off.
  • No-Sell: They are immune to all status effects with the exception of K.O. They also take no elemental damage unless struck on the tail. At HR 100, the tail becomes immune to the elements as well.
  • Scary Scorpions: Subverted; while they resemble scorpions, they're actually crustaceans. They're still dangerous due to utilizing weaponized crystals and sheer power, though.
  • Standard Status Effects: They can inflict Paralysis and Crystallization.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: If you don't shake off the crystals they cover you in, they will explode. Furthermore, the geodes they produce from their tails will explode after a short while.
  • The Worf Effect: In a trailer for Forward 5, an Akura Vashimu gets devoured by an Odibatorasu in a matter of seconds.

Taikun Zamuza

Multi-Shell Crab

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/taikun_zamuza_1257.png
Appearances: Frontier

Resembling nothing so much as a misshapen mass of rock and coral, the Taikun Zamuza's not actually real, bright orange shell can be revealed as you break away its outer covering. It doesn't appreciate this though, and will attempt to cut down the hunter with its bladed left pincer, or smash them to smithereens with its hammer-like right pincer. When all of its armor is broken off, it reveals its true form, which is dramatically different from its previous forms; its movements and attacks get faster, it turns blue, loses its tail, replaces its hammer arm with a drill arm, and gains the ability to use Thunder attacks.


Kusubami

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/frontiergen_kusubami_render_001.png
Appearances: Frontier G8

Scorpion-like monsters that reside in the White Lake.


  • Poisonous Person: Can spit poison at hunters.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: It's a scorpion-like crustacean that has the face of a jumping spider.
  • Scary Scorpions: Subverted; despite what appearances would suggest, they're actually crustaceans. That said, they can still be a threat due to being poisonous and relentless in their pursuit of anyone who draws near.

    Fanged Beasts 

Kamu Orugaron / Nono Orugaron / Midgaron

Male Sound Wolf / Female Sound Wolf / Explosion Wolf

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/667f888c76b938658bb9417b6e87737d.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/6674a01f065634d63b4896590a02781e.png
Appearances (Orugaron): Frontier Season 6 onwards
Appearances (Midgaron): Frontier G onwards

A pair of giant wolves first introduced in Frontier Season 6, Kamu and Nono Orugaron work together as a team to bring down prey and opponent alike. Frontier G introduces a mutation of Kamu with red hair and the ability to use fire attacks, named Midgaron. Midgaron has the unique behavior of attacking the hunter who initiated the hunt, sometimes chasing after them relentlessly even when other hunters are attacking it.


Gogomoa / Kokomoa

Jumping Cardinal Beast

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/76df107f5418570383cc733127825065.png
Appearances: Frontier Forward 2 onwards

A literal spider monkey that resides in the Tide Island, Gogomoa primarily attacks by shooting webs a la Spiderman. The baby that it carries around is named Kokomoa. Hunters can attack Kokomoa to enrage Gogomoa, which doubles its attack speed but makes it more susceptible to damage, allowing much faster kills.


  • Achilles' Heel: Gogomoa's defenses drop significantly if Kokomoa receives enough damage to make it flee, making it easier to take out despite the greater aggression that results from it.
  • Everything's Better with Monkeys: They're literal spider-monkeys.
  • Glass Cannon: Especially when Kokomoa is harmed enough.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: One of its signature attacks is shooting webs from its hands, then using them like a slingshot, sending itself flying towards the hunter. If the hunter destroys the webs before it can launch itself, it will fall over, leaving it vulnerable to attack.
  • Infant Immortality: Kokomoa doesn't die, but instead flees by digging underground when damaged enough.
  • Joke Character: As an April Fool's joke, Capcom released a quest that involved hunting a purple Gogomoa with the producer's face on it. Its attacks include using a Gunlance to produce fireworks which spell out, "Thank you for your continued help!" in kanji, landing on its rear to make copies of Frontier G7 fall from the sky, and using its claw attack to throw confetti. See it for yourself.
  • Mama Bear / Papa Wolf: If Kokomoa is damaged enough, Gogomoa will go into a state of rage. This is actually a good thing because, as mentioned above, it makes hunts end much faster than they normally would due to its defenses dropping significantly.
  • Pun: It's a monkey with the ability to shoot webs. It's a literal spider monkey!
  • Standard Status Effects: The coconuts Gogomoa throw can poison hunters and put them to sleep.
  • Warm-Up Boss: The Low-Rank version is designed to be a tutorial for new players, having slow, telegraphed attacks despite moving quickly, weak defenses, and an exploitable weakness in the form of Kokomoa. The High-Rank and Gou versions avert this trope by having greater attack speed, power, and aggression along with new attacks.

Gougarf

Fighting Beast

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3e1b6190725afcfd777ed2c2516b9fab.png
Appearances: Frontier G2 onwards

A pair of dog-like Hominidae Fanged Beasts that can manipulate magnetism. Lolo Gougarf and Ray Gougarf are rarely seen without each other, and can team up to perform powerful tag moves. Unlike other monster duos, whose relationships are male and female, they are distinguished from each other through genes; Ray possesses the dominant gene while Lolo possesses the recessive gene.


Voljang

Crimson Lotus Lion

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/frontiergen_voljang_render_001.png
Appearances: Frontier G10

A close relative of Rajang that resides in volcanic areas. Unlike its more frail relative, it is covered in a rough hide, and has fiery ore on its legs and tail that act as flints.


  • Killer Gorilla: Has a gorilla-like structure, and is a dangerous creature to be around.
  • Lightning Bruiser: It hits like a truck, has tough defenses, and moves quickly.
  • Playing with Fire: It can use fire attacks by igniting the ore on its legs and tail. This is taken further when it's enraged, where it releases fire with its whole body and can use fire with almost any attack it uses.
  • Stout Strength: Like Rajang before it, it has a stocky build and powerful attacks.
  • Turns Red: It can freely release fire with almost any attack when enraged.

     Leviathans 

Kuarusepusu

Crystal Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_kuarusepusu_6464.png
Appearances: Frontier Forward 4

The first Leviathan appearing in Frontier. It is mostly found in highlands and deserts and is unique in that its attacks are affected by the weather. During battle it scatters crystals all around it that either explode or call lightning.


Poka / Pokara / Pokaradon

Frozen Sea Beast

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9bdf376c7825fdc34e66879b57ad2334.png
Appearances: Frontier G onwards

Walrus-like Leviathans that inhabit the Polar Sea. The pups are known as Poka, the adult females are called Pokara, and the large alpha male that controls the females is known as Pokaradon. They are the first mammalian Leviathans introduced in the series.


Baruragaru

Blood Eating Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/724ba0c08bd29c31d4a35eaa02e4f6aa.png
Appearances: Frontier G3 onwards

A Leviathan with characteristics of a lamprey, Baruragaru is an invasive species that hails from the sea. It uses its long tongue to drain the body fluids of Raptorial Bird Wyverns and hunters alike, and by doing so, it can temporarily gain certain attributes; for example, if it drains an Iodrome's blood, it can use poison attacks. When enough time passes, they will revert to using water attacks.


  • Bloody Murder: If it drains the blood of a Velocidrome or a hunter, it will use their blood as a weapon. Getting hit by it will reduce your weapon's sharpness.
  • Camera Abuse: Blood will splash on the camera screen if it pins a hunter down and starts extracting their body fluids.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Doesn't apply to it, but rather to the monsters around it; any unfortunate Mook struck with its flail-like tongue will be bisected.
  • Epic Flail: It can use its tongue as a flail.
  • Gorn: Expect to see a lot of blood when it appears.
  • Lamprey Mouth: Unlike most creatures that have this, it's not it's actual mouth. No, this thing's Lamprey Mouth is on the end of it's frigging tongue!
  • Making a Splash: If it hasn't preyed on anything, or enough time passes after it drains the body fluids of its prey, it will use water attacks.
  • Meaningful Name: Its name is a combination of the Latin word barbarous/barubarusu(バルバルス) (meaning "savage") and the Spanish word lagartija/ragarutiha(ラガルティハ) (meaning "lizard"). So... Savage Lizard.
  • Multipurpose Tongue: Its tongue is used for both feeding and attacking.
  • Overdrawn at the Blood Bank: This occurs whenever it uses blood attacks. Furthermore, if you interrupt it while it's feeding, its mouth will bleed heavily.
  • Overly Long Tongue: Which it uses to feed off its prey's bodily fluids.
  • Standard Status Effects: It can poison hunters if it drains an Iodrome and paralyze them if it drains a Gendrome.
  • Stock Animal Diet: Its favorite food is Raptorial Bird Wyverns.
  • Vampiric Draining: It uses its tongue to drain the body fluids of its prey.

Appearances (Giaorugu): Frontier G2 onwards

A Brute Wyvern first introduced in Frontier Forward 5, Abiorugu is nomadic, moving from one place to another in search of food. Frontier G2 adds a blue subspecies with yellow spikes that inhabits polar regions named Gearorg.

  • Leitmotif: Battle / Abiorugu
  • Lightning Bruiser: They hit hard, move quickly, and can take a lot of punishment.
  • Playing with Fire: Abiorugu.
  • Spikes of Doom: Their tails have spikes that they can launch at hunters.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: To the Deviljho line as ravenous nomads that can destroy entire ecosystems with their hunger. This has been downplayed due to Deviljho appearing in Frontier as of Frontier G8.
    • Gearorg is also one of these to Uragaan due to using many of the same attacks it does. Like Deviljho before it, this has been downplayed due to Uragaan appearing in Frontier as of Frontier G9.
  • Turns Red: The tips of Abiorugu's back plates turn red when it's enraged.

Gasurabazura

Angry Appearance Wyvern

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dab9329d1bbab16f810513de1b24101a.png
Appearances: Frontier G8

A desert-dwelling Brute Wyvern introduced in Frontier G8, Gasurabazura resides in the White Lake. In ancient times, its ancestors were aquatic, thriving in the lake before droughts dried it up. These droughts forced it to become terrestrial, making it what it is today.


     Elder Dragons 

Rukodiora / Rebidiora

Magnetic Dragon / Pole Dragon / Thunder Pole Dragon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/83fc3fe1e3d495d048eda370238fa231.png
Appearances (Rukodiora): Frontier Forward 1 onwards
Appearances (Rebidiora): Frontier G2 onwards

A magnetic Elder Dragon first introduced in Frontier Forward 1, Rukodiora constantly lays siege on the Interceptor's Base. Unlike any other monster, it can drag itself around when paralyzed. Frontier G2 adds a variant with purple scales and weaponized electricity named Rebidiora.


  • Cutscene Power to the Max: Rebidiora's introductory scene shows it taking control of debris like Rukodiora despite being unable to do this in-game. It can use an electric orb to fling debris around, however.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Rukodiora can take control of boulders and other kinds of debris and use them as weapons or shields. Rebidiora cannot take control of debris, but instead uses a thunder orb that collects and throws stuff.
  • Leitmotif: Battle / Rebidiora
  • Magnetism Manipulation: They can use magnetism to push and pull hunters at will. Rukodiora can also use its magnetic abilities to take control of debris, using it for both offense and defense.
  • No-Sell: Downplayed with Rukodiora; while it can be paralyzed, it can drag itself around instead of being completely immobile like other monsters who are affected by paralysis.
  • Shock and Awe: Rebidiora. Rukodiora also has control over electricity, but it doesn't it as a weapon; it uses it to generate its magnetic abilities.
  • The Paralyzer: Touching Rukodiora's wings will make one's hand go numb.
  • Wave Motion Gun: Can fire a Dragon Element magnetic beam to attack hunters.

Appearances: Frontier G5 onwards

A mammalian Elder Dragon with the ability to take control over bamboo, Inagami inhabits the Bamboo Forest. It is able to ooze a strange substance that heals wounds and hardens them. Once at peace with the village within the forest, it became violent after the villagers took advantage of its power in an attempt to grow their crops during a bad harvest season. By abusing its power, they broke their peace with it, and it promptly destroyed the village it peacefully coexisted with for hundreds of years as punishment. Since then, it has been aggressive towards any intruders that enter the forest, and was even responsible for the disappearance of a research team.


  • Bamboo Technology: It can make bamboo into weapons and artificial wings.

  • Leitmotif: Battle / Inagami

  • Stone Wall: Under the effects of the healing substance, the covered part is healed and hardened, but also becomes weighed down and loses some of its effects.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/garuba_daora.png
Appearances: Frontier G5 onwards

A golden relative of the main series's Kushala Daora who uses the Wind element, a combination of Thunder and Ice, and is able to manipulate crystals in order to combat the hunters.

  • Blow You Away: Garuba Daora uses the Wind element, which is a combination of Thunder and Ice.
  • Chrome Champion: Garuba Daora is gold-plated.

Appearances: Frontier G7

A recently discovered Elder Dragon with the ability to control liquid metal, Harudomerugu was thought to be a near legend until their discovery. Until recently, they were rare, but reports of them residing in the Snowy Mountains and attacking the Interceptor's Base have popped up as of now. It is considered to be unusually smart when compared to other Elder Dragons.


  • Achilles' Heel: If it uses its liquid metal too much, it will lose control of it and its body will become exposed, leaving it more vulnerable to damage. It can regain control over its powers, though.

  • Genius Bruiser: Not only is it very powerful, it is capable of forging weapons from liquid metal and using them in battle. As a result, it's considered to be one of the smartest Elder Dragons in existence.
  • Leitmotif: Battle / Harudomerugu
  • Knife Nut: Its wings are designed like knives.
  • Magnetism Manipulation: It uses a special type of magnetism called superparamagnetism to control liquid metal.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Its title, "Silver Controlling Dragon", seems like this at first as it controls mercury. However, one common name for Mercury? Quicksilver.

  • Spike Shooter: It can attack hunters by shooting metal spikes out of the ground.
  • Wings Do Nothing: It's actually flightless in its natural state, requiring liquid metal over its useless wings to be able to fly.

Appearances: Frontier G8

An ancient, poisonous relative of the main series's Yama Tsukami.

  • Green Thumb: Plants grow easily on its body due to abundant nutrients found in its body, and it may plant explosive trees during the battle with it.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: During the battle with it, it'll drop seeds that will grow into explosive trees over time. Attacking the seeds will cause them to burst into trees right away, which will knock it out of the sky if it is right above them, leaving it vulnerable to attack.

  • Poisonous Person: Yama Kurai is able to produce a substance that contains different types of poisons.
  • Standard Status Effects: Yama Kurai can inflict sleep, poison, and paralysis onto hunters.

Keoaruboru

Blazing Peak Dragon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/frontiergen_keoaruboru_render_001.png
Appearances: Frontier Z

A massive Elder Dragon who lays siege on the Interceptor's Base time and time again, and was the very reason it was built. It can build up heat over time, and when the process is complete, it will lay waste to the area around it with powerful Fire attacks.


  • Escort Mission: You have to prevent it from using some attacks as they actually damage the Interceptor's Base. If it succeeds in destroying the base, you'll fail the quest.
  • Glass Cannon: It has powerful attacks that can devastate the area around it, but is rather fragile for a Giant class monster, having lower health than the majority of them.
  • Kill It with Ice: It's vulnerable to the Ice element.
  • Playing with Fire: It can unleash highly destructive fiery blasts if its tail and arms heat up completely. Hunters can slow this process down by attacking those parts.
  • Stance System: It has three phases with an increasing amount of power: Normal, Scorching, and Thermal Runway/Overheating. It starts out in the first phase but will go into the other two phases if it builds up enough heat, and can be brought back into the first phase by sufficiently damaging its arms and tail, slowing down the heating process.
  • The Dreaded: It's the main reason the Interceptor's Base was built in the first place, and it's said to be so powerful that it can cause mass destruction in seconds and destroy said base with a single attack if left unchecked.

Violent Laviente 
Berserk Laviente 
Appearances (Normal): Frontier 7.0
Appearances (Violent): Frontier Forward 1
Appearances (Berserk): Frontier G9

  • Big Eater: Laviente are quite gluttonous creatures and once they are hungry they will devour anything in their wake. Their life cycles consist on consuming as much food as they can and then going on long periods of slumber. In fact, Lavientes only wake up naturally when they have run out of food and they are beggining to starve, which is the origin behind the Violent Laviente, a Laviente who recently woke up feeling hungry and the Berserk Laviente, an ancient Laviente who is hungry to the point of starvation.
  • Damage-Sponge Boss: Its health is naturally proportional to its size.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: A few of its attacks involve raining boulders on enemies and causing spikes to burst out of the ground.
  • Don't Wake the Sleeper: The Laviente of Solitude Island awakened from its hibernation due to the explosion of the island's volcano, the first thing the creature did was going on a ravenous rampage and devouring all the poor creatures that got caught up in it's way.
  • Marathon Boss: Even with 24-32 players joining the hunt, the entire series of quests can take upwards of 3 hours to finish.
  • Made of Explodium: It can release a combustable powder a la Teostra.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Solitude Island is a paradise where fauna and flora are abundant, or at least it used to be that way, when Laviente woke up from it's slumber it devoured most of it's inhabitants (the rest of them were taken out by the volcano).
  • Playing with Fire: It can shoot gigantic fireballs at hunters.
  • Swallowed Whole: The Berserk variant can launch you in the air, then swallow you for a One-Hit Kill.
  • Shock and Awe: Laviente is capable of covering it's body with electric currents that can paralyze or stun foes.

During an event that went on from September 11, 2013-September 18, 2013, the joining limit was up to 100 players against an extremely powerful Violent Laviente .

Appearances: Frontier G6

This monster possesses no official classification, and cannot be put with the other monsters as a result. Little is known about it aside from the fact that it guards the Sky Corridor, and that it can inflict the rare Corrupted Poison condition, which drains your health and lowers your defense at the same time.


  • Angry Guard Dog: While a monster and not a dog, it serves this purpose for the long-dead Ancient Civilization, guarding the Sky Corridor with extreme ferocity.

  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: To the main series' Gore Magala; see here.
  • The Dreaded: The Guild only lets hunters fight it for a very limited amount of time due to how aggressive and dangerous it is. Further adding to the dread is that you will lose time if you faint, and it is rather easy to faint when going up against it due to its sheer power as well as the Frostbite and Corrupted Poison ailments it inflicts.
