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 has a pronounced extraterrestrial look, it is theorized and implied by the game with the Sapphire Star Meteor that this monster is from space, when reaching adulthood it will metamorphosize into 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 effect sPoison with ⭐⭐⭐.

Combat tactics for Xeno'jiiva

  • 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 Fireblight.

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. 
        • This concept is finally realized with the reveal of Safi'jiiva.

      They gave the coolest monster introduction to the easiest boss in the game. It makes sense though, as you are fighting literally a newborn. Even with how easy it is, one of my favorite monsters and has one the coolest designs.

      • Anonymous

        Easy but fun. Got her down first try with Odogaron armor and Pukei SnS. Took a while but it was satisfying taking my time.

        • Anonymous

          Hello, everyone. I know that some think Xeno is a pushover, and I agree. With optimal gear that is. For those who underprepare, Xeno can hit hard and takes a long time to kill. So, I am here to give a Xeno move set, combat tips, and an optimal build against her( note: I call Xeno’jiiva a female, so I will be using those associated pronouns).

          ALERT!!! Contains endgame content, so read at your own risk.

          Combat tips: Xeno is big, and she has a large amount of health. Her attacks can also deal a fair amount of damage to those who have suboptimal or less than optimal gear.
          For starters, eat for health at the Canteen, the Chef’s Choice Platter, to get a health boost. Due to Xeno’s damage table, have your Palico take a poison weapon, I recommend the Rathian Rapier. If the math is correct, you should be able to poison Xeno six times throughout the fight. Each round of poison deals 800 damage to her, so we are looking at a total of 4800 damage. Since Xeno has 15,500 HP this amount of damage is very useful by lessening the time it takes to kill her.
          When she enters her second phase, where she starts flying, pack dung pods. They’re useless in deterring her, but if you run out of slinger drops, those will still work.
          She has four slinger drops: Slinger thorns, Slinger bombs, dragon pods, and piercing pods. In order to break all of her parts( head, individual forearms, tail, and wings), use these carefully. Use the Slinger thorns in her head to build up a stun. When she’s stunned, hit her wings. Hit her wings with the piercing pods and Slinger bombs, although it is satisfying to shoot a piercing pod from her head to her tail. Dragon pods are useful for shooting her down and for causing a flinch, and aim for her head and forelimbs.
          Focus her tail in the first phase, as the tail takes a total of 900 damage to cut, but can’t be cut until phase 2, kind of like how you can’t break Kushala’s, Teostra’s, or Lunastra’s head until they’re at 20% HP. Her tail will be severed on the first hit on it.

          Now, for her move set:

          Claw swipe: Basic attack. Xeno will look in the direction she will swing, either left or right since this can be done with both hands. She will then swipe in an arcing motion in front of her. This attack will deal, moderate damage, but is blockable with the base sword and shield.

          Tail slam: Xeno will only use this attack if the one who she is targeting is behind her. She will then lift her tail up high and then bring it crashing down. This attack is not blockable with the sword and shield. It will deal moderate damage, and it will knock you back. If she is in her critical state (glowing chest) this attack will leave behind an explosion, which will deal moderate damage as well.

          Swinging tail slam: Xeno will rarely use this attack. When someone is behind her, she will slam her tail to her left, then swing it across. This attack will deal somewhat heavy damage, and it will leave behind explosions where her tail tip hung over. These explosions will also moderate damage, but they will knock you back.

          Body slam: Relatively easy telegraph, as Xeno will stand on her hind legs and roar. She will then come crashing down, moving a bit forward. Standing close to her will cause tremors, which need max tremor resistance to block. However, standing far enough away from her will negate the tremors. Standing behind her hind legs and around her tail area will also leave you safe from this attack.

          Charge: Yet another relatively easy telegraph. Xeno will look in your direction, roar, then charge at you. This attack is blockable with the sword and shield and it will deal relatively low damage. However, when she is in her critical state, this charge will leave the ground that she walks over heated, which will burn the player. Standing too long in one of these molten puddles will cause the player to contract fireblight.

          Straight beam: Xeno will roar with her head down, then proceeded to fire a straight beam of dragon element energy. Do not block this attack, as it will high damage. Instead, run perpendicular to the beam to safely dodge it.

          Sweeping beam: Xeno will angle her body to the side, and her neck will be arched. she will then unleash the beam, only she will start sweeping it in a 180° arc in front of her. standing behind her or to her side will allow you to safely dodge this attack.

          Single shot: Xeno will open her mouth, which will start glowing, and then unleash a blast of dragon energy. This blast targets, the one who has her attention, and if they stay where they were, the blast will hit them. The blast is not blockable, and will deal a decent amount of damage. The best way to dodge it is to run perpendicular to the blast.

          Triple shot: Xeno will fire a straight shot, then move her head, 45° to her left and unleash another shot. She will then move her head 90 to her right, and fire a third blast. Her head will linger there for a moment, so you can get one or two hits off. in the end, the attack pattern of the attack looks like a cone, or a dinosaur footprint. The best way to dodge this attack is simply run towards Xeno.

          Standing beam: Xeno will stand on her hind legs, and begin to fire beam at the ground. where the beam touches, the ground will become molten. She will then not move for a moment before going back on all fours.

          Explosive slam: Xeno will only use this attack in her critical state. She will roar, rear up on her hind legs, and slam the ground. This initial slam will cause a small tremor, but isn’t damaging. She will then thrust her hands into the ground, and a violent explosion will erupt from there. You do not want to be hit by this, as without the health boosting meal, you die. With the health boosting meal, you will take a ton of damage at full health. Best way to avoid this is to run away from Xeno when she does this.

          Standing beam 2: Xeno will raise her head while on all fours, and you’ll see blue sparks from her mouth. She will then fire a beam, launching herself on her hind legs. She will sweep the beam in a similar pattern to the first Standing beam, only she will fall into the ground afterwards. Keep distance from her when she falls, as it will cause a tremor. Xeno will only use this attack in her critical state, making her chest a weak point and a large one at that. Focus the chest when she’s down until she gets back up.

          Take flight: Xeno will take flight. She will then be able to use her aerial attacks. When she takes flight, there are two things to note. One, it generates wind pressure, but doesn’t give her time to attack as you’ll be reset. Two, when she takes flight, that means there are slinger drops somewhere. Find them, and shoot her down. You have to be careful, as every time you hit Xeno while she’s airborne, she will enter a damage animation. You have to wait for her to reset before firing the next shot. It takes 2-4 shots to bring her down, depending on what slinger shot she’s hit with.

          Flying shot: Xeno fires a blast of dragon energy at the player. To dodge this attack, don’t stay still. Run in any direction. This attack deals moderate damage and can’t be blocked.

          Flying beam: Xeno rarely uses this attack. She will fire a beam directly below her, then lift her head, moving the beam as well. The ground becomes molten when she uses this attack, so be careful. Do not block this attack.

          Dive bomb: Xeno raises one of her forelimbs, then flies low to the ground, thrusting her hand into the ground in a swiping motion. The ground will then explode, dealing heavy damage. Do not block this attack.

          Returning dive bomb: Xeno will return to the battlefield, crashing down in a similar fashion as to when you first enter her second area.

          Arm thrust: Xeno will raise one of her arms, then thrust it down into the ground. A line of explosions will follow up. Being near her front limbs will cause tremors, so run away. This attack has a long telegraph, for Xeno at least, so it gives you time to run away.

          Discharge: Xeno will shake for a moment with her head lowered, then roar. This will cause a random burst of dragon energy in the ground. They deal minimal damage, but give you Dragonblight. Use a Nulberry to get rid of it, or have 20 dragon defense.

          Roar: Xeno roars. Her roar has an astonishingly large radius, so be wary. However, you are returned to normal before she positions herself to attack you. Xeno will roar at three intervals; when you first enter the area, when she enrages, and at random points throughout the fight. Some of these roars will not need earplugs as they’re non stunning.

          Move: Just by moving, Xeno can damage you. It deals minimal damage, but gives you a red health bar.

          This is the move set of normal Xeno’jiiva, not Arch Tempered. I know AT Xeno has a few other moves, and is made more dangerous, but I am in the dark until I fight her. As for the boulder traps, use them in the story, but not in any other moment unless it’s AT Xeno. The reason for this is to break all of her parts more efficiently. Each of Xeno’s broken parts, except for the tail, take more damage when broken.

          The best for last, my build for hunting and farming Xeno’jiiva. Note that some of this gear is event quest specific, so I will fill in on how to beat them to achieve this loadout. I am a SnS main, but I’m sure it can work well with other weapons:

          Head: Dante’s Hair. You can get this by completing Code: Red and obtaining the required materials. Equip a Fire Resistance jewel to it.

          Body: Azure Starlord Armor. You can get this by conpleting the USJ: Blazing Azure Stars event and obtaining the required materials. Equip a Jumping Jewel to it.

          Arms: Harvest Trama. You can get this by gathering enough Harvest Tickets or whatever they are and obtaining the required materials. Equip a Jumping Jewel and a Dragon Resistance Jewel to it.

          Waist: Azure Starlord Tassets. You can get this by completing the USJ: Blazing Azure Stars event and obtaining the required materials. Equip a Blaze Jewel to it( note that I used this in another one of my builds, so there’s probably a better Jewel for it).

          Legs: Dante’s Leather Boots. You can get this by completing Code: Red and obtaining the required materials. This is the hardest piece to obtain from the Dante set as one needs a Teostra Gem. I just used a Gold Wyverian Print at the Elder Melder. Equip a Gobbler Jewel and a Fortitude Jewel to it.

          Charm: Defense Charm 3. You can get this by crafting and upgrading the Defense Charm with the required materials.

          Weapon: Witcher’s Silver Sword. You can get this by beating the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt collaboration quest and crafting it with the Leshen’s materials. Equip a Defense or Attack Jewel to it, as I’ve tried both, but I go with Defense. If you need help beating the Leshen Quest, find my post in the Leshen’s page. It will be the ridiculously long one.

          In turn, the skills you will get are Defense Boost 4, Weakness Exploit 3, Handicraft 2, Evade Extender 2, Fire Resistance 1, Dragon Resistance 1, Critical Eye 1, Fortify, Resentment 1, and Speed Eating 1. Upgrade it to maximum, and you’ll have an adequate Xeno farming build. This will also give you more than 20 Fire and Dragon defense, so you don’t need to worry about blights.

          That’s all I got. Thank you for taking the time to read this comment, and I would say “May the Sapphire Star light your way”, but Xeno is the Sapphire Star, so… go get her?

            A really pleasant fight imo. Some of the other elder dragons are anything between annoying and nigh-impossible, while some of the normal monsters, even on the hardest difficulties for them, are a joke at best, so this was a nice middle ground. With the right tactics, losing is almost impossible, but go in unprepared and you might find yourself carting before you got a hit off.

            Also, hitting a Penetration Pod all the way from tip of the tail through to the head? Pure satisfaction.

              I used hammer + nergigante armor except the helmet (which was azure, couldn’t get nergigante gem) and this boss was way easier than I thought. Killed him solo no faints

              • Anonymous

                this boss is really easy with the right strategy, one of the easiest in the game in fact, because it's extremely predictable. Just attack its hind legs, even when they're not vulnerable yet (for the love of god bring a sharp weapon and some fins). When it rears up run away and wait for the blast. When it topples cut its tail. When it takes off stay below its arse and pepper him with dragon pods in order to drop him, then focus his forelegs or head until he starts to get up, and transition back to its hind legs. If you can stay on the outside you literally can't be hit, if you stay on the inside you can juggle between the two legs and only be hit by its charge, which does so little damage it barely shows up on your hp bar. If you find yourself far away or in front of its head at any time just circle around and get back to its hind legs while sprinting. Use the downtime while he's doing his aoe blast to recover stamina. That's it. Follow this strategy and you'll never cart. If you're careful enough you can pull off a no hit run in a couple of tries with this.

                    Hint: Xeno will move around a lot and does a **** ton of damage, use fast, ranged weapons like the dual blades, long sword, heavy/light bowgun, bow, sword and shield, or charge blade to make sure that you're out of the way when it attacks, and that you can hit it enough before its all the way on the other side of the arena

                          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!

                                                this dude likes f***ing with you mentally, especially if you use the greatsword. it sits there for a few seconds and gives you the impression "hey I'm vulnerable! hit me!" you hit it ONCE and then it spider crawls away and ruins your framerate with that horrid laserbeam. but then again that's some great lookin armor so it makes the whole fight worth it... until you have you fight it again because you don't have the mats for the rest of the gear. 10/10 would spend an hour fighting again

                                                  try using insect glaive for the first time at this boy (some people said it works on him pretty well) he got to hit me only a few times and when he hit me I just go extract his tail for free heal although I need run around from his head front legs and back legs to rebuff

                                                    I'm a hammer main on my way doing this dude's quest thought I'm well prepared just keep hammering his feets and it took me 36 min OTL his hp pool is maybe 2 times larger than other elder dragons and he keep charging( changing his position ) or flying and I can't seem to find any pods around him lol also there's barely any environments at all just one ledge on the first fighting area and a few

                                                      This dude was... Interesting. Every time I've fought him (... Like 3 times...) I killed him just after the '10 minutes remaining' message. Definitely time consuming, but kind of fun. He is a bit underwhelming though, you learn the moves and you've basically won. Best design though, he looks incredible! Also, would you say his armour and weapons are worth it? (mainly glaive and light bowgun)

                                                        How has no one commented that it is an obvious combination of the Ur Dragon and Daemon from Dragon's Dogma?

                                                          Think about it: This creature just hatched and it can already fly and fire lasers outta its mouth. If your character fail to slay it and it got away, lil' Timmy here will mature into a world-ender. By comparison, when I came out of my mother's womb, I can only do 1+1=2. So weak man

                                                            first time fighting him i got stunned, he used straight laser and i survived by being stunned longer than the laser lasted. lol my head should have been ash. later during the fight i had really low health, got stunned, and my palico got me out of the stun, and when they do that it does a little bit of damage, and i fainted. stupid cat

                                                              For some reason, even though I have killed it three times in total, I can't select Xeno'jiva as a preferred target when searching SoS flares.

                                                                Since this guy has JUST been born, how exactly can he be classified as an "Elder" Dragon.. I don't think capcom knows what elder means...

                                                                  • Anonymous
