      Tigrex has more Ailments than ice and water, it applies fireblight in the enlder recess and the effluvia debuff in the rotten vale

          This monster is just not fun to fight against. It deals way to much damage to have an attack with a tracking, lingering hitbox and whoever thought it would be a good idea to give it a ranged attack is beyond evil.

            It would seem he can also apply Effluvia with the ground chunks projectile when fighting him in the Rotten Vale... So I guess that's one more thing that makes him annoying as f*** to fight XD

              Its spin is more stupid than behemoths. You arent save underneath the monster. You aren't save above it. You aren't save 20 meters away from it. What an annoying piece of*****

                All you mai ly need is the trusty vitality mantle and the one mantle used to dodge strong attacks since most of his attacks are powerful. In between charges just hit him IF you can

                  This things moves are easy to dodge and he is easy to deal damage to. But what’s annoying is that if his feet slightly brush past you, you get one shot and it’s his main attack, so in my opinion this fight isn’t hard or fun it’s just annoying

                    I'm trying to fight tigrex with a switch axe and a friend of mine is using a longsword. How should we tackle this beast?

                        Man, I want to love this monster, I really do. It has such a great design, and that damaging roar is incredibly unique, yet it never seems to use this trademark skill. Instead I’m just left playing a glorified game of tag, chasing after the thing as it runs around. There’s an agile, lithe monster, and then there’s this. Potential to be a great on your toes fight, instead feels like a chore. Poor Tigrex. Least he’s got a great, well, everything else! Theme, physical design, I love everything about Tigrex except the run spam. Rather be curb-stomped by a new feature than annoyed by one we’ve already seen.

                              The Monster Hunter Stamina Test is a multi-zone stamina capacity test that gets progressively more difficult as it continues. The full canteen benefit test begins in 20 seconds. Line up at area 6. The stamina decrease starts at Wiggly Litchi but will slowly progress to Waterblight each minute after you hear this signal. *Deafening roar.* Stamina should be recharged by the time you hear this signal. *Wild screech.* Remember to dodge in the correct direction as Tigrex may block a direction entirely. The test ends once you get stunlocked into hell three times. The test will commence at “Quest Start.” Ready, set, Quest Start! SCREEEEEEEE-

                                Reminder that the canon pronunciation of Tigrex is "TEE-grex," not "TYE-grex." The developers and Handler say so. This reveals that the first half of Tigrex's name is Spanish in origin, not English. "Tigre" (TEE-gray) is Spanish for tiger. I believe that if the first half of the name WAS English in origin, the name of this monster would be "Tigerex." A single "e" can make a huge difference.
