Wyvern Rex is an extinct monster first introduced in Monster Hunter Frontier: New World. It is the ancestor of all wyverns and appears randomly in some quests in High Rank and G-Rank.
Wyvern Rex has black-grayish scales on its body with red tinges on its back along with yellow eyes. It has sharp claws on its feet and hands much like other Flying Wyverns and isn't really known by the Guild.
Its been rumored that it changes its appearance and fight style while fighting hunters.
Wyvern Rex is believed to be found in almost every single area that Flying Wyverns can be found in. This suggest that these wyverns were very wide spread before supposedly going extinct.
