In-Game Information

Misty-Gigginox-Rage

Mist Gigginox (enraged)

Loathsome wyverns that prefer the cold. They cannot climb well and instead attack from the air. Expelling water that near instantly turns to ice, no hunter will want to forget their Hot Drinks when fighting this monster.

Introductory Cutscene

Location: Tundra Area 6

Synopsis: A pack of Baggi bring down a Bullfango on the huge ice shelf in Area 6, sending it to sleep with their terrible toxins. Unbeknownst to them, a pale blue Gigginox is watching them from above. It growls quietly even as it begins to climb down the wall toward its next meal...

Meanwhile, the hunter arrives in Area 6 to find it deserted. But just then, a horrifying scream rings out into the air, causing the hunter to cringe. A pack of Baggi jump down from the ice shelf and down to the ground, racing past without giving the hunter a second glance. Before the hunter can investigate, a large snowball rolls over the edge and breaks apart upon impact with the ground - inside the snowball is a dead Baggi.

The hunter climbs up the wall to see a Mist Gigginox chasing away a few more Baggi with a blast of ice from its mouth. Its body turns lime green, and it screeches with rage even as it detects the hunter's body head. The Mist Gigginox flies into the air with a flap of its flabby wings, and the hunt begins.

Basic Information

Monster Class: Pseudowyvern

Weakness: Thunder

Element: Ice

Status Ailments: Iceblight, Snowman, Pin

Habitat: Snowy Mountains, Polar Sea, Tundra, Frozen Seaway, Glacial Wastes, Subzero Snowfield

Behavior:

  • Eats from a carcass when low on stamina
  • Cannot use its Snowball attack when low on stamina
  • Drops an item when its underbelly is broken
  • Huffs mist and body turns lime green when enraged
  • Body turns pale blue when low on stamina
  • When its head, belly, and tail are broken, its respective Ice attacks grow weaker

Physiology and Behavior

The Mist Gigginox is structurally slightly different than its cousins, the Gigginox and Baleful Gigginox. Its wings are stronger and lighter, allowing it to perform simple attacks while hovering in the air. In return, it isn't very good at scaling walls and ceilings. It stores water and ice in special sacs all over its body, which it dispels as snowballs and mist in order to freeze its prey and discourage its predators.

Frenzied/Apex Behavior

Mist Gigginox can become infected by the Frenzy. Its blue hide darkens to a more purplish tone, and it becomes a bluish-green when it becomes enraged. Its scream is distorted to the point where it actually causes damage to listeners. Now, it is able to inflict Frenzy through the use of its Snowball Spit, Jump-Back Spit, and Devour attacks.

The existence of an Apex Mist Gigginox has not been confirmed.

Item Descriptions

H:

  • M.Giggi Hide: The bright blue hide of an unusual Gigginox subspecies. It shrivels and pales when dehydrated.
  • M.Giggi Claw: This claw is less developed than an ordinary Gigginox claw. Thought to have lost its purpose through evolution.
  • Thermal Extract: This extract contains a natural antifreeze. Thought to be the secret behind the Mist Gigginox's ability to store snow and ice in its body.
  • Chill Gland: A frozen gland that produces chemicals that freeze instantly. Try not to squeeze it too hard.

G:

  • M.Giggi Piel: Unusual hide that came from a Gigginox subspecies. It is leathery and flabby, great for insulation.
  • M.Giggi Talon: Although of definite quality, this talon is of absolutely no use to its owner. It is thought to help it keep a grip on slippery ice.
  • Glacial Gland: The slightest touch will cause this gland to produce nitrogen-like chemicals. Used by the Mist Gigginox to freeze prey solid.

A:

Note: Satanic Maws and Repulsive Dermis can also be carved from Gigginox and Baleful Gigginox.

  • M.Giggi Dermis: Its insulating properties keep the Mist Gigginox warm, while its flabbiness protects against attacks.
  • M.Giggi Ripper: Once a powerful weapon - now, nothing. Thought to aid in gripping ice, but this is doubtful.
  • Arctic Gland: Produces chemicals that locks prey in a frozen tomb for eternity. Don't touch under any circumstances.
  • Hotblood Extract: The blood of a Mist Gigginox is very hot! It helps keep the monster from freezing from the inside out.
  • Satanic Maw: The jaws of a loathsome flying wyvern. Odds are you haven't seen one like it.
  • Repulsive Dermis: The touch of this foul skin will live in a hunter's nightmares forever.

Attacks

Normal

Body Slam: Rears up on its hind legs and then flops back down.

Misty Slam: Rears up on its hind legs, pauses, and flops to the ground, spraying snow and ice everywhere. Has a slightly lesser range when its underbelly is broken. (Iceblight)

Mist Spread: Stands tall while snow puffs from its underbelly, then does a jump while expelling a wave of snow and ice around it. Has a slightly lesser range when its underbelly is broken. (Iceblight, Snowman)

Snowball Spit: Holds its head up like a cobra, takes two large steps back, and spits a ball of frozen water. When it hits, it will leave a small cloud of mist behind for a few seconds, but will disappear instantly if its head is broken. Can do this while in the air as well.(Iceblight, Snowman)

Jump-Back Spit: See "Snowball Spit". Leaps backwards while spitting out a ball of frozen water. (Iceblight, Snowman)

Charge: Charges forward while expanding and contracting its maw. Will sometimes end with a bite.

Tail Slam: Looks backwards, raises its tail and holds it there, and then pounds it on the ground hard.

Acrobatics: Jumps in an arc, flipping itself so that it faces the other direction when it lands.

Aerial Tail Lash: When it flies into the air, it flicks its tail upwards.

Neck Lash: Extends its neck and bites to its left side, then does it again to its right with far more range.

Tail Lash: Same as the Neck Lash, but with the tail.

Aerial Slam: When in the air, it will stop flapping for a second, and then "pounce" forward, landing on its belly. When enraged, snow will spread around it when it lands. (Iceblight when enraged)

Snow Bomb: Expands its tail, and quickly "lays" a ball of snow that explodes soon after. Takes longer to detonate when its tail is broken. (Iceblight)

Blizzard: While in the air, holds its head up as if about to do a Snowball Spit, then expels a very small cloud of snow from its belly. Then, madly flaps its wings while expelling a huge cloud of snow. (Iceblight, Snowman)

Devour: Crouches, then leaps forward and Pins the hunter. It then proceeds to engulf the hunter with its mouth and eat him/her alive. It will finish with a blast of ice. (Iceblight, Pin)

Roar: Lowers its head noticeably, then extends its neck and tail and howls extremely loudly. Can only be blocked with High-Grade Earplugs.

G-Rank Onwards

Aerial Tail Lash: It can now expel a small Snow Bomb that explodes on impact with the ground. (Iceblight)

Notes

  • Its Latin name means "cave-dwelling vampire that disperses snow".
  • It doesn't utilize ceiling attacks like the Gigginox and Baleful Gigginox, instead preferring to use its more developed wings for aerial attacks.
  • Its A-Rank armor introduces the skill Heat Wave, which causes hot weather to greatly drain your health.
  • On the weapon tree, its weapons form a diverging branch from Gigginox weapons.
