          Great sword is ideal for first attempts. Block and sprint-dodge. If you can time those head on face smacks, he’ll wind back and wimpier like a little biatch. Stay up close or put unsmashable obstacles between you. Also, he can jump and climb. Go for the tail sever once he starts limping - charge attack. Traps and bombs are your friends here, along with might pills/drinks. Get it!

              For such a big fella, he sure can climb. I highly doubted he could the first time I tried to fight him, and I got so scared

                Dont be fooled by his looks, he's quite agile. He can quickly climb ledges, jump at you or body-ram even from significant distance. His most powerful attacks are mid to long rage, including deadly fire breath. Stay up close, circle around. Make sure he doesn't have you on a straight line. if you want to distance yourself - use the environment to create obstacles, mind that he can smash trough some of them though.

                  Alright kids, the training wheels are officially off. The Anjanath is fast, powerful, and when he's pissed off breathes a cannon of fire that can insta-kill even geared players. So, a couple of pointers: 1. Just about every attack he does will knock you off your feet or onto your butt, so don't try to combo through his counterattacks. Hit a few times, then dodge before he responds. 2. Come fully stocked with potions/mega potions, and don't feel ashamed about legging it for a breather if things go sideways. 3. The Anjanath is in its element in close quarters, where it can use its bulk to knock you silly by the simple act of moving. Make your big moves on him in open spaces. 4. Particular growls and roars he makes give you (brief) warning of what kind of attack he's about to try. If you see him winding up, get out of the way or die. 5. When he's on his last legs, he'll retreat to his lair which is an absolute nightmare for both capturing and fighting: he sleeps on vines (how?!?) so you can't lay a trap on it, and it bounces you around like a trampoline when he steps on them. For added fun, a pack of Jagras likes to hang out right next to his nest and may interfere: killing one to scatter them might be a prudent call. If you want to capture, place your trap as close as possible, wake him, then lure him onto it. If kill, then fight as much as possible on solid ground. Good luck! And don't get frustrated if you die, everyone has (EVERYONE, don't let the git guds fool you) to this beast.

                    This guy is much easier for me compared to tobi kadachi. Strange. People say Anja is the hunter's 1st wall but Anja is easy to me compared to tobi.

                        thanks for the info I will use it to help me take it on for the first mission against it but isn't there a better armor other than bone to take it on? Also thanks for telling me that the head is a good place to strike it makes since because its the hardest to hit also water element weapon's is easy to know that its the best element against it because it uses fire

                          Heh, I have 3 plates and I've only hunted one 3 times... I get a LOT of luck in this game. But as much as I despise this monster, I feel a bond with it whenever we fight, like as if it's some sort of epic showdown...

                            Anja (I call him Anji) is to me like Rudy is to Buck. Every time I see that colossal fossil we have a showdown. I've also spent a great time studying him. I know his paths and habits, when he will be down by the ocean to look at the view. I also know good tips on bringing him down and avoiding his hitbox. Be warned I use hammers so take this with a grain of salt in how to work it into your weapon. First things first his hit box is crazy but he has a window. While facing you his attacks come mostly from his right, your left, so if you see him rear his head to take a bite do not dodge to the left, dodge to the right/middle, kinda angle yourself, it takes practice but once you get the hang of it you'll leave him wondering where you went. Second, his fire, he coughs up fire and that can hurt you up close, keep your distance enough but also to try and get around him. His big flame burst can be tricked into shooting away so long as you dodge correctly. Watch his mouth and actions, is he coughing and inhaling? Is he leaning back? Get ready to dodge because yer about to become bbq. The best place to attack is behind him, under the tail. Hammer users use the simple 'golf swing' combo here or the spin attack but be careful because he gets cheeky in how he side bashes and takes you with him. If you get too far away he will pounce you so keep close. When he brings the fights to areas with climbing shrooms or hills that allow hammer users to do their areal slide attack he is in the danger zone. Use that attack to deliver lots of damage and get a ride on him. Don't be cocky, remember if you make too much distance he will come after you. Riding, ah hopping on his back is fun but you know what's even more fun? Getting on his face and moving last second so he slams his face against a hard surface. Also use riding to break his back. When he gets rated his throat glows, smack it while it does this to break it like a pinata and get some shiny goodies. He's easy to stun but be warned sometimes he gets back on his feet quickly. When blinded he will still attack and he normally does lashes and side bashes. If he scoops you up hit the dodge button like your life depended on it as well as holding the directional button to a side to get out of the way before you get snapped. He sleeps high up in the trees, however his bed is made of vines and do not allow traps. Place a trap South of his position when you enter through the hole in the tree, to the right a bit on the hard ground, toss tranqs at his face and wake him up and stand behind the trap, he will go into it even if you see him go down a level just stay put and give him a second to climb back up. Remember you can catch a monster by tranqing it at any time, you just have to have it land in a trap later. So when he is down from a stun I suggest tranqing him. One more thing, when he does a terf war, take that time to hide and heal/sharpen weapons cause he likes to take a bit to beat up and chase off anyone trying to interfer. His tail attack is annoying but avoidable if you keep close/dodge to the right if facing behind him. He's weak to water but tbh I just beat him up with either a bone hammer or hammer made out of other Anjanath's lol. Good luck and remember, stay close and don't get cocky.
