Monster Hunter’s eponymous monsters run the gamut from imposing dragons to expanding frogs, with each new entry bringing fresh designs to the table. In Rise’s case, it’s getting a few, but one of the strangest is perhaps Aknosom.
The creature, which is officially designated as a Bird Wyvern, hops around on one leg and has an umbrella-like head appendage. They’re also capable of spitting out fire, making them a threatening foe regardless of distance.
