'A recently discovered species of Zinogre with giant spines on its back. While a lot of research has been done with the little information gathered, the Guild requires a live specimen to perform greater tests, yet the monster resists all methods of capture.' Spike-laden Zinogre is much larger than the regular Zinogre, and features extended claws, spikes on the tail and greater senses. When entering a charged state, large spines appear out of its back, which it can hurl at the ground, or hunters. These spines conduct electricity, so can be used to field electrical currents through the ground.
- It was the first new monster announced to appear in Monster Hunter Frontier Ultimate Season 2
- When entering rage, the spines crackle with electricity, and explode and conduct faster.
