BLACK DIABLOS (MONSTER HUNTER WORLD)
Monster Hunter 2
Monster Hunter World
Black Diablos is a Subspecies of Diablos introduced in Monster Hunter G, also featured in Monster Hunter World.
The designation as a subspecies is somewhat of a misnomer, as Black Diablos are simply female Diablos in heat. Their shell turns black during mating season to warn other monsters of their heightened aggression and hostility.
Highly aggressive, even for such a large wyvern. Diablos are considered one of the most aggressive creatures in the Desert. Using the sand as cover, Diablos can launch devastating ambushes on intruders approaching their territory. Black Diablos behave like a normal Diablos while fighting. They are highly territorial wyverns, they will attack members of their own species if they enter their territory, and they will also attack other monsters like the Tigrex should they approach.
Commonly found in Deserts. Black Diablos are well suited to arid climates, but their ability to tunnel in sand may limit them to deserts only. However in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, they can be found at the Deserted Island during times of extreme heat and drought in the Sandy Plains.
