Brute wyverns coated with an explosive green substance, a material that is thought to be a unique slime mold that is primed to explode by an element in the monster's saliva. They are also capable of powerful foreleg strikes.
~ In-game Description


Brachydios is the Flagship Monster of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and a member of the Brute Wyvern class. It inhabits a variety of harsh climates, from volcanic to arctic. Brachydios are easily identifiable by their glowing, green slime-covered horns and "fists," as well as their shiny, armored hide covered in many plates and ridges that are made of obsidian. Unlike other Brute Wyverns, Brachydios sports a pair of long, highly developed forelimbs that it uses as its primary means of defense. Brachydios' forelimbs and horn seem to secrete a mysterious slime.
