  • When it's charging, if you do enough damage to its head, you can interrupt it for a second or two.  Ie may start again after regaining its balance.
  • Doing enough damage while it's charged will cause its to temporarily lose its supercharged state.  You'll hear a ringing sound when this happens and it will recoil and snarl at you.
  • One of it attacks sees it land on its back.  It is very vulnerable and you can slightly attack its back at this state as well.
  • When it does its claw slams, simply dodge roll towards its tail.

      If you think and look at the hunting horn it's kinda funny, it's looks very similar to an electric guitar. not sure if this was supposed to be a little joke but to me it's funny either way. also, who's hyped for stygian? His attacks look freaking awesome (and more complicated from when I remembered in MH4U.) Happy Holidays and Happy Hunting! I wish every single one of you the best of luck. May the Sapphire Star light your way and guide you through the hardest of missions. Don't give up! There's still hope! You are a hero of your lands, a friend, the best hunter in the fleet! Get out there and show the monsters that it's YOUR turf! You can do it! You are the legendary Sapphire Star, NOTHING CAN STOP YOU!

        So can this monster not be caught? We tried multiple times and he just kept busting our traps. Really frustrating.

          Coolest Fight Yet! Going toe to toe with Zinogre using SA feels amazing. When he is super charged and he goes combo crazy, you can hit, hop, hit, hop each attack so easily. Seeing the evade mantles attack boost go off 6 times in a row while getting a hit between each one just feels so damn satisfying!
