Avoiding Savage Deviljho
Fighting Savage Deviljho is in no way required to beat Iceborne. However, Savage Deviljho likes to show up uninvited.
Like his regular counterpart, Savage Deviljho can be encountered on every map that isn't a dedicated Boss arena.
Savage Deviljho invades Elder Dragons quests, even assigned ones. The longer the hunter spends fighting the Elder Dragon, the higher the Chance of Deviljho showing up. It will spawn close to the Elder Dragon and immediately go for a Turf War. Afterwards, it will either leave or go for the hunter instead.
Most Investigations with good rewards and large time limits have a Savage Deviljho waiting in them.
Savage Deviljho will usually approach the hunter at least once if they are on the same map. To lose them, Flash Savage Deviljho, then run away. Never get between a Savage Deviljho and its prey. Use the interactions with other Monsters to scram and wait until your target and Savage Deviljho separate.
Utilizing Savage Deviljho
There are few monsters that can stand up to a Savage Deviljho, limited to most Elder Dragons (except for Kirin), Rajang (and potentially Furious Rajang) and Seething Bazelgeuse. All other monsters are mostly defenseless against Savage Deviljho. The hunter may choose to use this to their advantage by deliberately luring a Savage Deviljho to an unsuspecting target.
Savage Deviljho will consistently slam other monsters for 500 damage that the player can see because it is considered environmental damage like Blast (other attacks will still deal damage, but no damage numbers will show up).
If the hunter wants to capitalize on this, they should watch out to not stand between Savage Deviljho and its prey, to not get caught in the crossfire.
Savage Deviljho is especially effective against Fanged Wyverns and Bird Wyverns, as Savage Deviljho will effortlessly pick them up with its mouth. Its target has no chance of fighting back and will repeatedly get slammed into walls and dragged accross the floor for very high damage. This lasts for quite a while untlil Savage Deviljho's prey is finally released and runs away. This interaction somewhat counts as a Turf War and has a cooldown period.

Enraged mode: Muscles expand and bulge out of its body, making Savage Deviljho deal more damage but also receive more damage. Attacks faster. Uses its Dragonbreath more often.
Savage Deviljho also likes to coat half of an Area in Dragon Element clouds, so having the Dragonproof Mantle equipped will help.
Savage Deviljho enrages easily and stays enraged for large periods of time. It is also entirely possible Savage Deviljho will enrage immediately again after calming down.
Weaken and Attack the legs to trip Savage Deviljho. Attack the head during Savage Deviljho's multi hit combos to knock it over for a short damage window. Use the environment to your advantage and consider using traps to create damage opportunities. Note that Savage Deviljho still attacks out of a Pitfall Trap.
