Table of Contents

Fanged Beasts

Once known as Pelagus, Fanged Beasts are mammalian creatures with no wings. They are often much faster than other larger threats, but not all of them are aggressive. Many of these beasts will ignore adventurers unless they make themselves known or startle the beast. While other Fanged Beasts attack on site, using the environment and speed to their advantage.

Fanged Beasts exhibit a wide variety of dietary habits; some are strictly herbivorous or carnivorous, while others subsist on insects. Most of them have unique attribute for survival, such as powerful forelimbs or large tusks, and are well evolved for the environment they live in. Others form packs, with the strongest of them as the Alpha.

Bullfango & Bulldrome

Although veteran adventurers can generally take a bullfango out easily, they can be dangerous for beginners and may even pose a threat to more experienced adventurers when several attack at once. Bulldromes on the other hand have larger tusks than Bullfango, and a layer of white fur, as opposed to Bullfango's black fur. Bulldromes are more agile when running and proficient at finding and locking onto their victims. These Fanged Beasts are sometimes found in packs and will charge at all intruders once noticed. They are very territorial, and can be a considerable nuisance.

Lagombi

A large, wombat-like Fanged Beast. Its ears are long and highly sensitive, and its face features a beak-like mouth along with small red eyes. A Lagombi's belly is made of a low-friction material and is shaped so that it can slide upon the ice like a sled. It is covered in a thick fur coat to keep it warm in its sub-zero homeland.

A Lagombi has superb hearing in order to remain aware of predators. It attacks by throwing chunks of ice, swiping with its claws, and sliding around on its belly in order to ram foes. To traverse from area to area it slides on its belly much like a penguin. Lagombi is a relatively docile monster, but will respond with aggression when provoked or threatened. It is evidently an insectivore, as it enjoys feeding on Bnahabra.

Arzuros

Arzuros is noted for its turquoise colored fur and ursine body structure. It has a ridge of erect hair aligned with its nose. Its back is made of a tough hide, somewhat characteristic of a carapace. Hair runs from its cheeks, connecting to its back, where it forms a trim along the sides of the back. The claws of an Arzuros have elongated, red nails. Each claw has a tough brace encasing and protecting the wrist and forearm. Arzuros has large, bulky legs connected to much smaller feet and a short, wide tail.

Arzuros is armed with two vicious claws which it uses for most of its attacks. It can use its large body and surprising agility for charge attacks and pinning down prey.

Arzuros are omnivorous creatures that enjoy feasting on fish and honey. When eating honey, Arzuros pays little to no attention to its surroundings. When threatened by other large monsters, Arzuros will try to use its size and claws to frighten the monster, or will use its agility to escape. Arzuros often hangs its tongue out of its mouth.

On a successful save, the target takes half damage and is not knocked prone.

Volvidon

Volvidon is covered in a series of red armor plates, which are segmented around the midsection and allow the Volvidon to curl into a ball. It possesses an extremely long, chameleon-like tongue which is covered in sticky saliva. Being a Fanged Beast, the Volvidon uses attacks similar to those of Arzuros and Lagombi. It is known to pull prey and foes toward its mouth using its long tongue. In addition to aiding transportation, its ability to roll up into a ball allows it to crush foes during combat. It will typically avoid trouble,           but if cornered, Volvidon can be surprisingly aggressive.

Kecha Wacha

Kecha Wacha is a lemur-like monster with long arms and hook-like fingers and claws. It has bright yellow fur and blue skin. It can fold its spiked ears over its face, forming a "mask" that is likely used to intimidate would-be attackers. It also sports a tube-like trunk and large, forward-facing eyes.

It is capable of attacking from a distance by shooting globs of mucus from its trunk-like nose which cause Waterblight. Kecha Wacha is able to glide using a membrane between its arms, legs, and tail, in a manner similar to a flying squirrel. This makes the Kecha Wacha the only Fanged Beast able to "fly".

Kecha Wachas thrive in areas where they can climb and swing around freely. These creatures have a varied diet as they are omnivores. Kecha Wacha will feed on vegetation, fruits, seeds, along with insects such as Altaroth, Konchu, grubs, or Bnahabra.

Curious in nature Kecha Wacha will investigate anything in their environment that is new to them. As relatively peaceful monsters these creatures would rather flee than fight, yet if fleeing is not an option they can be surprisingly aggressive and will readily use their long, sharp, and hooked claws, trunk-like nose and mask-like ears to defend themselves.

The Conga & Congalala

They resemble pink gorillas with a face of a hippopotamus, black underbellies. The Conga have a blonde patch of hair on top of their head while the Congalala spike on its head is actually hair that the Congalala has smoothed into shape to signify that they are the pack leader. Congalalas are surprisingly intelligent beasts.

Despite their apparently adorable appearance, the Conga & Congalala should never be underestimated. While they are for the most part very docile, they react well to the presence of herbivores, so long as they give a wide berth. They can quickly become aggressive to anything that disrupts feeding or startles them, for example, if they see Adventurers.

Congas are known for their ability to charge at hunters, like Bullfangos (but slower), travel in packs, and fart on enemies. While the Congas are known for their foul breath attack which varies based on their diet.

Its strong, muscled limbs allow it to run and leap at a startling speed. Blangongas are incredibly aggressive creatures. They will ruthlessly attack adventurers and prey, yet shy away from anything larger than themselves. Blangonga live almost exclusively in the snowy climates. Their thick coat keeps them warm and serves as the perfect camouflage

By calling out to its pack, the Blangonga can summon Blangos to fight beside it in battle. Its deadly speed can bewilder the novice adventurer, as they can perform a charge that can send them rolling into their foes and deal out massive damage.

However, notable differences include Rajang's broader muscles, large horns, hairy tail tip and its ability to use electricity-based attacks.

The fur covering its huge body is mostly bluish, although it's also white and red on its trunk, legs, back and underside. It has brown plating covering most of its head and feet, as well as two tusks seemingly made of the same material. This plating is said to be extremely resistant to damage. Its trunk is strong and used for picking up objects like certain foods. However, Gammoth have been seen violently grabbing smaller monsters and slamming them down on the ground if they threatened it.

Thank you

For

Checking this out

Thank you all for using this Monster hunter Monster Manual. I created a few monsters originally because I wanted to use them in my own campaign and progressed into this Monster Manual we have today.

This section is 9 pages of monsters from the series and I am pretty proud to say I created them. I hope you all enjoy using these creatures as much as I plan too and this is not the end.

The Monster Manual might be done, but thanks to a few ideas from users on Reddit. I plan on creating a compendium with loot tables for materials, all of the weapons from the videogame series, and rules for using these monsters in your own Monster Hunter D&D game.

If you are interested in letting me know what you think. Feel free to stop by my Twitch channel or check out my Patreon. Thank you for reading and I hope this book serves you well.
