      When are the games going to get around to bringing back the Green Nargacuga (and updating it to be more unique)? Or for that matter, Lucy. It isn't like World has the same excuse Gen / GU have of not adding subspecies (though they were fine with Rare Species and still ignored Lucy)... It feels like forever since I last saw Green Narga in a main MH game (though it got a little love in Stories).

        Illogically fast and agile, far too much HP for its size, and busted hit-boxes / collisions: Welcome to Crapcom's Iceborne: Artificial Difficulty Edition.

          Tip he's a decent monster to follow round in the guiding lands for tracks, scratches the ground often for 25 points n' lots of footprints, also tends to feed on a Aptonoth or two. ^-^

            A speedy boi with lots of tricks up his sleeve to mess with new hunters. Weapons may not be very pretty anymore but that huge chunk of purple sharpness certainly brings a smile to my face.
