Notes & Trivia
- It is known as the "Crushing Wyvern".
- It's name comes from the latin Brachium that means "Arm" and when translated into Japanese, the word resembles obsidian, which is what Brachydios' shell is made of.
- It is the second monster (after Viper Tobi-Kadachi) to add a status effect not seen in the base game of Monster Hunter World.
- However, unlike Viper Tobi-Kadachi, it is (currently) the only monster that can inflict the status effect it introduces, that being Blastscourge.
