      "a female diablos in heat" Yet fights the regular and white version? Diablos are strange creatures aren't they...?

        For anyone farming the horns: Bring any weapon with sleep (or a Palico weapon, will take longer though) and try to get it to sleep as fast as possible. Then just put 2 Mega Barrel Bombs next to it's head and wake it up with your strongest attack to the head. That is usually enough to break one horn and damage the other one. Good luck.

          Some fights in MH games are just more annoying than challenging, and BD is one of them, due to the moveset and how they balanced her. Most time of the fight is not actually spent fighting but just waiting for an opening

              She's like a hidden Arch-Tempered Elder Dragon, especially with multiplayer HP scaling. I had a lot more fun fighting AT Kirin with no elemental resists.

                I used to be one of those people who got super salty about Black Diablos. Then I went back and played all other Monster Hunters. Now she's just a good ride and free zenny. Bring your screamer pods, time your shots right (wait for her to fully burrow), and light a cigar as you wail away for free damage. Prioritize lateral movement at a distance, or dive between her legs (giggity) when she's close. Use slopes to your advantage when she does her horn swipes, because the tail can still hit but will whiff if she's uphill. World's version of Big Black D is remarkably easy to take compared to prior iterations. Have fun!

                  I got Mini Gold crown at 1886.63... only had to hunt 73 of them (probably skipped at least that many) and one full weekend...

                    Beware of "capture" quests. The Black Diablos will not usually run away when weakened, so you may have literally no warning that its health is low before it dies.

                      Hunted both this version and reg diablos. I've gotten, like, 10 blos medullas, 0 ridge+, and 0 majestic horns after breaking the correct parts :l

                        Hello. My name is Sandra B. Diablos. I like long walks on the beach, spending 50% of my time burrowing underground, 20% of my time exploding back to the surface, and 30% of my time having a persistent hitbox that can do damage even when I'm seemingly standing still or not touching you. Will you love me?

                          Ah yes. The one monster that gets under my skin. It doesn't matter how extended your evade distance is, how stun free you are or what weapon you use. It's gonna hurt ya bad before you drop it. Deal with it.
