NERGIGANTE (MONSTER HUNTER WORLD)
Monster Hunter 2
Monster Hunter World
Nergigante is an Elder Dragon first introduced in Monster Hunter: World.
Nergigante is a dragon with a bristly appearance. It is covered in spikes that constantly regrow as they’re broken off. It has two massive horns similar to a bull. The monster’s hide is primarily black with purple and orange accents.
Nergigante is able to regenerate at a rapid rate. When the spikes on its tail, arms, or back are broken, they’ll immediately grow back. These spikes are white in color when they regrow, but will turn black if left to harden. Once these spikes have hardened, they will deal more damage to foes and repel attacks. These spikes will also be launched from Nergigante’s body when it performs certain attacks, giving these attacks more range and making them more dangerous.
Nergigante is an extremely aggressive monster that’ll continue to fight, even if it means harming its own body. It’ll attack anything without hesitation, especially if a creature dares attack it. Nergigante is particularly ferocious towards other Elder Dragons, since it feeds on them.
Nergigante actively hunts and feeds on Elder Dragons to gain massive amounts of energy. Because of this, it will get into turf wars with the Elder Dragons Kushala Daora and Teostra.
Nergigante has been witnessed at the Great Ravine, Elder’s Recess and Wildspire Waste.
