Diablos Combat Info

  • Diablos can burrow and traverse underground quickly, attacking from different angles
  • This monster has an ability that manifests as a loud shout / roar, which can cause mhw-stun-status-effectStun. Players may block this by using earplugs.
  • mhw-ice-damageIce is the most effective element against it.
  • Weakspots on the head, wings and chest, which can be broken.
  • Susceptible to paralysisParalysis.
  • Resistant to mhw-fire-damageFire and mhw-thunder-damageThunder to a lesser degree

    • Red: Horn, Head, Neck, Tail, Tail Tip
    • Orange: Stomach, Back, Left Wing, Right Wing
    • White: Left Leg, Right Leg
  • Diablos can be forcefully brought to the surface by using loud sounds. And its charging attack, whilst devastatingly powerful, can be baited into colliding with a wildspire, momentarily getting Diablos stuck.
  • Diablos is surprisingly quick and has a deceivingly large range, so be ready to dodge whenever the monster begins an animation.
  • Diablos is most powerful at the start of the fight. An effective strategy is to kite it  around the arena, tiring it out. It is much slower and far less aggressive while exhausted, making the fight much easier.

      A few quick noob tips. (Noobs=people who haven't fought diablos since day 1)
      1: Keep your stamina up as you will need to constantly evade his attacks.
      2: Keep weapon sharp as often as possible.
      3: When attacking legs stay to his right as you are less likely to be body slammed that way.
      4: When attacking tail stand right underneath by legs so if he does tail swipe you won't be interrupted.
      5: Don't pass out

          And getting Majestic horns is ####### impossible , I've spent like 4 hours of farming to get 2 majestic horns. AND YOU NEED 5 TO MAKE THE HIGH RANK SET.

            For me this boss is a massive **** off, honestly just overkill, spamming the same attacks that stun you instantly then finishing you with a bash

              Using Great Girros Charged Blade is highly recommended when fighting Diablos the first time. Fairly easy to get.
              You can break the horn and sever its tail fairly easily when she is spasming from paralysis.

              I think this page needs to provide info, the use of screamer pod to catch/entrap her when she is underground.
              Yesterday I helped bunch of newbies and they died twice already. They are confused when I throw Screamer pod.
              wiki needs to guide em with this trivial but critical method

                There is nothing fun about fighting this guy or black diablows. Theyve only got like 5 different attacks, 3 of which stun you so it just spams the same stupid***** over and over again.

                  Been goin' toe to toe with these Horned Grumps since the early days. I gotta say, still fun to hunt a Diablos down- couple Ham whacks to those big ol' sweet potato horns will bring this fella down quicker than a well-done steak becomes a burnt steak. Happy huntin' folks, stay safe.

                    After many tries solo finally got him down with two other players. The hit boxes on this guy are whack. And that burrow attack. . . Amazing game but my god I hate this boss.

                      diablos tree for weapons is after the Anjanath tree, so it will be difficult hunting since it has a resistance to fire, that is if you use the Anjanath weapon, unlock that part of the tree after hunting Legiana

                        'I wonder what kind of prey is meant since the Diablos is a pure herbivore'
