Monster Hunter Rise Great IzuchiSource: Capcom

The Great Izuchi is one of the weaker monsters you will fight in Monster Hunter Rise on Nintendo Switch. It doesn't have much health, and its hide is severely weak to all forms of weaponry. However, that doesn't mean you should underestimate the Great Izuchi.

The Great Izuchi's razor-sharp claws and tail, as well as its agility, compensate for its feeble defenses. Not to mention it can summon regular Izuchi to aid it in battle, making you regret thinking this hunt would be a cakewalk. So, let's begin our research and plan how we can take down this Bird Wyvern and its mob of miscreants.

Be sure to check out our various guides for Monster Hunter Rise once you're done. We have guides on what weapon type and armor set to choose, what monsters have been confirmed so far, and a tutorial on how to use the Wirebug.

Monster Hunter Rise Tips Guide: How to slay Great Izuchi Preparation

Before you begin looking for the Great Izuchi, grab some Potions and traps at the base camp tent. The Great Izuchi doesn't have any status effect attacks, so all you need is Potions to keep your health in good condition and traps to immobilize the Great Izuchi.

When you are out in the field, keep an eye out for endemic life because they can provide boons in the hunt. For example, Spiribirds can give a permanent boost to your stats for the whole mission, and elemental beetles can inflict a monster with an elemental status effect.

Monster Hunter Rise Tips Guide: How to slay Great Izuchi The Hunt

You can find the Great Izuchi roaming around with its pack or, on a scarce occasion, see it grooming the regular Izuchi's fur. If it spots you, the whole Izuchi pack will immediately attack you all at once.

Great Izuchi only has a few attacks in its repertoire:

  • The Great Izuchi's main weapon is its sharp tail shaped like a scythe. It can spin it around or do an overhead slam to try to split you in two. If it performs the overhead slam attack, the tail will be stuck to the ground, providing a brief opening for you to attack.

  • Great Izuchi will sometimes spit in your face if you are far away or on a platform it can't get to. It doesn't do much damage, but it's still not a pleasant thing to experience.

  • It will rush towards you to rip and tear you to pieces with its claws.

  • In High Rank, the Great Izuchi will jump on walls to do an aerial attack.

Izuchi Pack

On its own, the Great Izuchi is not too difficult, but when its smaller brethren back it up, that's when the hunt gets complicated. The Great Izuchi will bark out commands to the regular Izuchi to perform team-up attacks to overwhelm their quarry.

The regular Izuchi themselves are relentless, constantly making small attacks that cause you to trip over. The Great Izuchi will immediately attack while you're trying to get back from the regular Izuchi's onslaught.

It's best to take out the smaller Izuchi first, so you only have the Great Izuchi to deal with. Though keep in mind, the Great Izuchi will call forth more Izuchi to replace any dead ones.

Enraged

The Great Izuchi will become enraged after taking a sufficient beating. While enraged, the Great Izuchi's attacks will hit harder and faster. It can also escape from traps more quickly.

Great Izuchi will stay enraged until it calms down, is put to sleep, or becomes exhausted.

Exhausted

After becoming enraged enough times or being hit frequently in the head by weapons that deal stun damage, Great Izuchi will become exhausted. You will tell when the Great Izuchi is exhausted when It starts drooling and is out of breath.

The Great Izuchi's attacks will be slower; it will stay in Pitfall Traps longer and will sometimes stop attacking to catch its breath.

The Great Izuchi will stay exhausted until it becomes enraged again or regains its stamina.
