Deviljho is a Brute Wyvern in Monster Hunter World (MHW). イビルジョー (恐暴竜) in Japanese. It was added in a free update on March 22, 2018(Console) & September 6,2018(PC) and was not part of the game's original launch. 


A monster that must feed constantly and will devour anything in its path, even feeding on the largest of monsters with its massive jowls.

Deviljho Details & Locations

Deviljho will invade 6★ Quests, 7★ Quests, and high rank expeditions once players have completed the investigation for the “??? Rathian” in the main story. When players load up they will get a prompt saying that Deviljho is found somewhere in the world. For the fastest way to find it:

  • Load up your world map and check all the locations for a ??? Monster
  • If there is no ??? Monster, head to any area.
  • Once in that area, bring up your world map again and check again to see if it appeared
  • Once you find ??? Monster, head into that area.

It is best to collect it tracks and capture it but slaying it is fine too.  Note that you do not have to hunt it at this point, collecting tracks is enough. After players have done so, head back to Astera to check in with the jovial researcher for a cutscene; this will unlock the Deviljho special assignment. Players will have to hunt a Deviljho in Ancient Forest. Hunters will be able to acquire the new mantle, Dragonproof Mantle, after completing the mission.

Dragonproof Mantle

  • Increases dragon damage while increasing dragon resistance.
    • This mantle will be good while using Deviljho’s weapons or any dragon element weapon.

      Wow was this the hardest fight I've done yet... Using Defender 3 / Guardian set and it's the first time I cart. After a slog of a fight I managed to capture it.

        I literally needed to do multiplayer to defeat this guy for the first time. But after 5 more hunts I decided to be an insect glaive user and he wasn't that hard anymore (captured 25)

          Sooooo, trying to hunt a certianly red dog/cat/lizard thing and the ice pterodactyl when this *****er decides it’s lunch time after I find the pterodactyl. I proceed to spend about 35 minutes hammering this bastard with a nearly fully upgraded defender switch axe, and when he’s showing all the signs of being ready for capture, I realize “wait a *****in minute I have a trap and tranqs!” So I proceed to fry his brains out, watch him limp to his nest, fall asleep, and then plant a shock trap in his skull, finally tranqing him twice In the face annnnnd.....nothing? What? Oh maybe I didn’t do enough damage, next hit, no TAP ON HIS TAIL KILLS HIM! The ***** did I do wrong!? Did I need a net trap or something because of the low radius of the bombs?

            There comes a point with Iceborne where the Handler becomes temporarily unavailable, when that happens, this quest also becomes unavailable. Might be worth adding that to a notes section on this page because it was confusing to know I'd done everything needed, but not have the quest available

              I just came up with making GTA SA characters as Monsters, What I picked was: CJ and Sweet as Azure Rathaloses, Kendl as a Pink Rathian, Big Smoke as a Deviljho (obviously), Ryder as a Diablos (maybe), OG Loc as a Bazelgeuse, Cesar Vialpando as Diablos, Woozie as a Tobi Kadachi (maybe), Toreno as a Velkhana (maybe), Tenpenny as a Nergigante (maybe) etc. What other GTA SA character can you think of as monsters or Thinking what monsters you want to change and should fit for the characters that were chosen? Leave a reply for your opinions.

                If a Deviljho was ordering his food from a drive through at Cluckin' Bell he would say "I'll have two Number 9s, a Number 9 large, a Number 6 with extra dip, a Number 7, two Number 45s one with cheese, and a Large Soda."

                  I think it's ironic that it has major weak points but in the worst places to be near. The head is obvious, the tail is huge and can knock you 50 feet in the air, and if your under his chest you get trampled. This is a really cool monster though.

                        Love the guy. Can't count the times when he absolutely dragged other monsters for me. Jho, you're the real MVP.
