- Gains a unique attack where it hovers in the air briefly and bursts forth spore pods in every direction. The pressure from this explosion can knock the player back if they are too close to the epicenter, as well as getting hit by one of the spore pods (which can also stun the player). These spore pods will then explode, creating a thick fog in a large circle for 60s and will cause significant damage to players within it. This fog does stay fairly low to the ground, so elevating yourself (such as when mounting the monster, which causes it to fly) is one way to avoid this damage.
- The Fungal patches on its body can be broken.
- Effluvia Resistance 3 will prevent your health from being cut in half, also consider Nulberries if you can't fit Effluvia Resistance into your build.
- Is immune to flash effects until the spores coating its head are broken
- Repeatedly using the Slinger Burst to slam him into a wall will eventually result in a head break.
- Contact with the spores will occasionally alter the appearance and behavior of some small animals, such as wingdrakes, jagras, and aptanoths. They will appear gray/ashen and become aggressive.
