Xeno'jiiva is an Elder Dragon and the Final Boss in the Story Mode of Monster Hunter World (MHW). ゼノ・ジーヴァ (冥灯龍) in Japanese. It is the juvenile form of Safi'jiiva.

 

A new species discovered in the depths of the Elder’s Recess. Its relationship to the other elder dragons is unclear, as is its ecology.

Xeno'jiiva Details & Locations

 

Xeno'jiiva Combat Info

  • Xeno'jiiva's Element Weakness is the same against every type of Element (Fire, Water, Thunder, Ice, and Dragon), ⭐⭐ each.
  • Weaknesses: Xeno'jiiva is very weak to mhw-poison-status-effectpoison with ⭐⭐⭐.
  • Combat tactics: Be very careful. As soon as it is in rage mode, its stomp becomes lethal once up close, since it adds an explosion after the initial stomp. Usually, when it isn't raging, the stomp is a good time to damage its feet, although its best to stay away from its front feet when it is in rage mode since anyone fighting with a close-range weapon will take heavy damage. 
  • Xeno'jiva will fire three kinds of projectiles while grounded. The first will be three projectiles first firing middle then 45 degrees to the right then 45 degrees from center to the left. Its second is a 180-degree beam that is fired from its mouth covering the entire distance of the map. The third is just a straight beam that is fired directly in front of it (This is a very good time to do heavy damage near the side of its face and claws.)
  • The first area contains crystal formations on the ceiling which can be shot with slinger ammo and dropped on Xeno'jiva for extra damage.
  • When Xeno'jiiva takes to the sky, it is best to shoot it down quickly with any slinger ammo you find ( they drop on the ground). Xeno'jiiva can perform long-range projectile attacks and a diving claw attack that causes dragon explosions in its wake. 
  • Resistances: Xeno'jiva can't be put to sleep and resists stun and paralysis pretty well. Flash pods are also ineffective.
  • The head and tail are the weakest areas, followed by the chest. All of them can be broken.
  • Xeno'jiva is the only Elder Dragon apart from Zorah Magdaros that cannot be mounted.
  • Xeno'jiva beams will heat up the ground beneath it. A way to combat this is with Uragaan armour, the Heat Guard skill, or the Fireproof Mantle, as they will protect you from Burning.

Notes & Trivia

  • Can't be lured
  • Camouflage works until ?? range
  • Xeno'jiiva is known as the "Dark Light Dragon"
  • Xeno'jiiva has been nicknamed by the community as the "Sapphire Star," as it is strongly implied that it arrived to the new world via the same meteor mentioned in The Tale of the Five.
    • The meteor in that story is seen as a symbol of hope (hence, "may the Sapphire Star guide your way"). This is ironic, since nobody knew it contained an extremely powerful and dangerous dragon (that is, until the player fights it themself).
  • Xeno'jiiva's name has Greek, Hindu and Jain origins.
    • "Xeno" is Greek for "Alien".
      • It is implied that Xeno'jiiva came from another world via the Sapphire Star meteor, and its biology is described as "alien" by researchers.
    • In Hinduism and Jainism, a "jiva" (Sanskrit: जीव, jīva, alternative spelling jiwa; Hindi: जीव, jīv, alternative spelling jeev) is a living being, or any entity imbued with a life force.
      • Likewise, Xeno'jiiva developed from the life energy of dying elder dragons.
    • In Jainism, "jiva" is the immortal essence or soul of a living organism (human, animal, plant, etc.) which survives physical death.
      • This could explain why Xeno'jiiva comes back to life after being slain, so that the player can hunt it again.
        • A far more likely explanation is that being able to rehunt it is simply a game mechanic, like Behemoth and Leshen, and nearly every Elder Dragon in previous installments.
      • It is theorized by fans that if Xeno'jiiva was left to incubate, it could become an unstoppable, godlike being.

      Aim for the area where the wings intersect with the body. If you can't, aim for the BACK legs. It's easy enough when it isn't enraged, but it can quickly become very difficult very fast when it gets enraged. When it's enraged, it will take more damage, and although this may be tempting, be patient and cautious of the front legs. If it roars and stands up in the air while you're near, try to triple-role away. A weapon that has a white sharpness is very helpful for this fight. When it uses its laser beam (for lack of better words) horizontally, it can be easily dodged with a well-timed role. Even though the damage boost on the tail my be tempting, it is often not worth it as it has a very powerful tail slam attack.

        "Is the juvenile form of Safi'jiva". But Safi'jiva is a Iceborne monster, so did a bunch of xeno'jiva just happen to fly over to iceborne and say "Hey! I'm gonna grow up here!"?

          Something not in this wiki, when she's enraged, her chest glows very brightly, and the ground under her becomes molten. The molten ground stays molten for a minute after she moves away, leaving trials of dangerous molten areas. Just back off, and let her tire.

            Dont know if i got lucky or this final boss on the story was supposed to be very easy. Just finished killing Vaal Hazak, went straight to the Xeno quest, didnt resupply any potions and etc, killed it very easy and got a Xeno Gem from carving. As i said, dont know if i got lucky or this happens for everyone.

              Love the design, love the music, love the fight. I wouldn't say it was "easy" - It sure hits hard, with melee weapons it's hard to hit it sometimes, but it's doable. Don't be intimidated by its size and attacks - just whack him as often as you can, dodge, heal frequently (Max/Ancient Pots for carts) and rely on your palico to do it's support stuff. I myself carted two times because I was to greedy in getting those few hits in. Just be careful, get this thing out of the air asap and you'll be fine! - Happy hunting my fellow Hunters!

                Fighting this thing is like having sex with your mum: yeah, she's massive, but it's still hard find an opening.

                  First time I fought this thing I didn't even go to the canteen because how was I supposed to know an alien Elder Dragon was going to pop out of an egg filled with bio-energy. I did beat him though, first try.

                    I see many people complaining that it is hard to get certain parts (Mainly the shells) I get shells just fine somehow but I can't get his wings. I can get at least 3 of everything else Xeno related at the end of the fight.

                      He probably has the longest hitbox of any monster, which makes pulling off that perfect spine roll with the Dual Blades VERY satisfying.
