LAVASIOTH (MONSTER HUNTER WORLD)
Monster Hunter 2
Monster Hunter World
Lavasioth are Piscine Wyverns introduced in Monster Hunter Frontier Season 1.0.
Lavasioth resembles a bipedal coelacanth fish covered in hardened lava, which forms a tough outer shell. It has two dorsal fins, two pectoral fins, two pelvic fins, and a long, thick tail to help swim through the thick lava it resides in. Its head is fish-like in nature, with rounded features and large, circular eyes. Its mouth is filled with sharp, needle-like fangs. Its powerful hind-legs end in fins rather than claws, but are capable of supporting it on land.
Its attacks and movements are vaguely similar to those of a Plesioth. It can fire huge balls of magma at hunters. When these hit the ground, they scatter into smaller molten rocks which can still do considerable damage. Lavasioth is known to use its heavy body weight to slam or crush attackers.
Lavasioth is a rarely-seen Piscine Wyvern, living and swimming in lava. Like most large monsters, it is territorial and will attack intruders on sight.
Lavasioth lives in the Volcano area.
