Seething Bazelgeuse is a Large Monster in Monster Hunter World (MHW). 紅蓮滾るバゼルギウス (guren tagiru bazerugiusu) in Japanese. It is a variant of Bazelgeuse.


The scales of this Bazelgeuse variant burn hotter than normal increasing in number and explosion radius as time passes.

Seething Bazelgeuse Details & Locations


Seething Bazelgeuse Combat Info

Kinsect Extracts:

  • Red: Head,Tail
  • Orange: Back, Belly
  • White: Wings, Legs


  • Unlike regular Bazelgeuse, Seething Bazelgeuse is not an invading monster, meaning it cannot appear in hunts randomly. An example of a Master Rank invading monster is Savage Deviljho.
  • Enraged mode: attacks faster and starts dropping blue bombs more often.
  • You can obtain shiny drops by attacking the head or the tail.
  • Tail and chest drop blast bombs that do physical and fire damage at the same time.
  • Seething Bazelgeuse's bombs will always explode on their own, even if Seething Bazelgeuse is not enraged. A weapon or Seething Bazelgeuse's attacks will trigger the explosion early.
  • When Seething Bazelgeuse gets lower in health, his ground charge attack will be performed twice.
  • Seething Bazelgeuse's body will gradually switch from an orange/red glow to a purple glow. Once the purple is at its maximum intensity, the scales will behave differently.
    • They will mutate to leave a purple lump on the floor.
    • They explode faster, deal more damage and have a larger blast radius.
  • Seething Bazelgeuse's only new attack, the "Ultimate Divebomb" sees Bazelgeuse rising into the air with a spin, scattering scales in a circle all around him. He then comes crashing down in the center of the circle, creating a massive explosion. He finishes with a unique roar that resets his color back to orange and ends his enraged mode. Seething Bazelgeuse only does this when he is completely purple and enraged.

Seething Bazelgeuse MH World Combat Tips

  • Position: Some good areas to be when facing the Seething Bazelgeuse is to keep at its underbelly, but you will need to be rolling around a lot. During its scale attack, keep a distance so you can easily maneuver in between the exploding scales. 
  • Mount: Seething Bazelgeuse can be mounted, but you may need for him to lunge his head during an attack. 
  • Turf War: You can always lure a Savage Deviljho into the fight since the Savage Deviljho is also always looking to fight other Monster. This gets free damage and eventually, you will need to watch for when they shift their focus on you. 

Seething Bazelgeuse will have a similar action set to the regular Bazelgeuse, except its scales will detach and it is able to fling them in different directions before they explode throughout the fight forcing you to maneuver out of its way as it creates a minefield. Seething Bazelgeuse attacks are generally telegraphed which will allow you to anticipate his next attacks and position yourself accordingly. His exploding scale attack disperses his scales far apart enough for you to also be able to maneuver between them as you continue to focus your attacks on the Seething Bazelgeuse. He will be regularly lunging and charging ahead throughout the fight and the easiest way to avoid damage while remaining in close proximity is to roll through the underbelly area as it starts to move. 

One massive attack to watch out for is its large ultimate dive attack. This attack is also telegraphed. You will be able to see as it flies directly upward while still shedding its explosive scales. This is before he begins his dive. Run out of harm's way before they start to explode and watch for when the Seething Bazelgeuse dives back down to the center which will initiate a secondary large explosion. If he's already diving, you may need to dive out of the landing area to gain as much distance as you can. As soon as it lands, you can begin running back in and continue your flurry of attacks.

      I would get rid of savage deviljho little version, snot t-Rex, and Mr. I like to hit things with a rock as invaders for Bazel back as a invader

                if youre a DB main you should try to fight him in area 9. the slope is really easy to get heavenly blade dance which 1) thats a lotta damage and 2) youre above him so you mostly avoid the bombs

                  I just had a Defense down debuff while fighting a Seething Bazelgeuse, I find it odd there's 0 information on it, what attack even caused it ?
                  Not something to underestimate.

                    Heard that Valstrax is in Rise, now I want Bagel to join it too. Just imagine a Turf War between B-52 and The Jet Fighter Dragon.

                      Haven't been able to get an orange extract from his back, no way. I tried. A lot. Did get one from his throat though (under his chin where the bombs hang) for anyone else struggling to find it!

                        Summary of what I think: Nice monster, cool fight, beautiful special move, should have replaced Banbaro as an Invader, Bazel's fight is kinda easy with IG because Bazel isn't really good at attacking but the bombs makes it a bit harder but Savage is a way harder fight in my opinion.

                          why does he have a tie in his turf war savage deviljho is way stronger by the way if you need some Smart Guy help just tell me - Smart Guy

                            Iceborne may have too many invaders, but I really miss Bazel being one. They could have easily kept him as an invader while Banbaro just kept chilling in the Reach.

                              so has it ever tried to gather up all his friends and blow up astera?
                              or: get all of its kind and blow up fatails
                              OR: work with deviljho and rule the new world but then the deviljhos would probably TAKE OVER
                              ( that would be bad and we would all die )

                                literally one of the best designed MR monsters, balanced moveset from hr with a few new good moves (Unlike ruiner), good hitzones (how rare) and still is kinda relevant in endgame since the tempered version is t3 for gems

                                  Expect the Savage Devilhjo to stop by pick a fight. Bring plenty of dung pods if you don’t want him to stay.

                                      He is very beautiful and deadly but he ain't an invader so toned down the deadliness there. first time fighting him and seeing admiral behind me, me: WTF?! when i fought him he wasn't to hard but he still is more deadly than regular Bazelguese for me. But a very beautiful and and fun fight. Also one of the best armor sets againste Raging brachydios

                                        Spent 70 minutes fighting it solo for the story quest using longsword; I reccomened using a bow since its flying around all the time; flashbugs; traps; it can runaway in expediation mode if you wake it from sleep, unlike other monsters this one will wake up and fly away, so you're better off trapping it/capturing it;

                                          They took an already pretty fun fight and just double downed on the memes. He’s not very hard, but his divebomb super is probably the flashiest monster attack in the game. Total spectacle fight.

                                            Actually kind of a laughable encounter. I play Chargeblade, nowhere near any decent set yet (just finished story), with Chrome Fortress III, elementless and a focus on crit. But no matter how you build, I think Seething is a joke. It was my 1st fight with it and went very well. Simple advice: 1. stay near its legs / under its belly where neither tail nor neck bombs can hurt you. Occassionally it will drop on its belly but with a huge telegraph so you cannot miss it. This is especially important during enrage. 2. Take max blastblight resistance and decent fire resist (at least 20 to become immune to blight) and you are fine. I have encountered far less 'dangerous' burst damage than with, to take an example at random, Brachydios. 3. Deviljho is nice to have but not necessary. Watch them massacre each other, collect the drops, if Bazel leaves all you gotta do is drop a smoke bomb and call your tail rider. No need to deal with Deviljho in any way. If you are lucky he will actually follow you (by chance) and f*cking do it again. 4. Chargeblade, Lance or anything with a shield is helpful in the rare situations when you cannot stay underneath Bazel and it does tailswipe or charges at you. I was very scared of this fight but it's kinda easy.

                                              I don't know why but I've always loved Bazel because I keep thinking of a WWII bomber and the thought of fighting an airplane is hilarious, and now it's even more over the top. I love it

                                                      Am I just incredibly unlucky or is the drop rate for Scorched Silverwings jut straight up bull*****hunts and I broke BOTH wings on each one, but every time I just get Hardclaws from the rewards. It takes 6 wings to make the entire set, which it pretty ridiculous at this rate.

                                                        Just fought my first one, and gotta say, I did almost jack*****. Savage Pickle showed up and would not ***** off no matter what. 3 turf wars, downed Seething a dozen or more times, almost certainly did more damage than me. Seriously, 500 per jaw drop, always does it twice, gurenteed to do it if a monster is knocked down, a knock down if it lands, he was doing 1000 damage every time Bazel got flattened, which was ALOT. I felt more like a spectator, and when Savage Deviljho started leaping and Bazel went nuclear, I was a very very SCARED spectator.
