Brachydios Details & Locations


Brachydios Combat Info

  • Kinsect Extracts:
    • Red: Head, Arms
    • Orange: Body, Tail
    • White: Legs
  • Enraged mode: Green slime will turn yellow
  • Monster stomps slime prints that explode when they turn red.
    • The slime prints are also acidic and will deal chip damage on touch. They may also cause status_effect-blastscourge_mhwi_iconBlastscourge
    • Some of the slime prints are thicker than the others. Walking through them will impede the hunter's movement.
    • Blast Resistance will help prevent Blastscourge. Full immunity is advised, as status_effect-blastscourge_mhwi_iconBlastscourge is very hard to get rid of (4-5 rolls)
  • Hitting Brachydios' hands with mhw-water-elemental-damage_sWater or mhw-ice-damage_sIce damage will wash off the slime, preventing explosions and slime from that hand, until Brachydios reapplies the slime with its mouth.
    • Brachydios' hands can also be broken, permanently preventing it from coating the respective hand with slime. Its head can also be broken, however, it takes tremendeous damage for it to break
    • For whatever reason, even if Brachydios' hands aren't covered with slime, they can still cause status_effect-blastscourge_mhwi_iconBlastscourge.
  • When in his enraged mode, the slime will starts off yellow and turns red much faster, exploding within a few seconds
    • Brachydios also gains two new attacks, one sees him blasting a long straight line with an instant explosion, the other sees him slam his fists and head in the ground to create explosions all around him

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 status_effect-blastscourge_mhwi_iconBlastscourge.
