Hunting Quest: The Food Chain Dominator

Reward Money: 14400 z

Hunting Quest Text: The Deviljho is a frightening presence that takes the idea of the food chain and crushes it between its massive jaws! Now it’s here in the New World. It’s time to get investigating!

Characteristics: Due to its enhanced metabolism, Deviljho must constantly seek out prey. It is extremely violent, and known to snatch up large monsters in its powerful maw and flail them around.

Useful Information: When enraged, Deviljho’s swollen muscles glow a hellish red. It will start spewing a sweeping dragon element attack, so watch your distance. Deviljho stays on the attack even when wounded, but don’t give up; keep fighting and you’ll come out on top.


Deviljho Fight Guide

Main Fight Mechanic: Roar + Tremor + Dragonblight

Roar: Large monsters have the ability to roar. This ability disrupts whatever action the hunter was doing (stun locks you briefly). There’s not much you can do about it in the early game (you’ll get better armor perks later).



Tremor: Deviljho is a large monster who can make the ground shake. These tremors stun hunters without proper decorations equipped.

Dragonblight: Deviljho can deal the dragonblight status effect with its reddish flame it shoots. This status effect nullifies the elemental properties of your weapon. The dragonblight effect is displayed by a purple footprint looking icon above the hunter’s health bar. To cure this effect, use a Nullberry.

Deviljho Attacks:

Deviljho is the first new update monster to hit Monster Hunter: World, and it should be fairly well known to those of you who have played previous titles in the Monster Hunter series. Affectionately nicknamed “the pickle”, Deviljho is a large monster that can be a tough monster to fight. Deviljho has two forms (hungry/eating), with each forming bringing a number of different attacks to the fight. Let’s take a look at Deviljho’s attacks:

*I attempted to grab all the attacks I saw. Let me know if I missed some in The Pit.



Normal Form: The hungry form of Deviljho is the normal form you will find the monster in. To tell when it is in this form, you will notice a lack of red glow emitting from the monster’s body. Another thing to keep in mind in this form is that Deviljho will be less aggressive than in its normal form (only a little bit).

  • Tailwhip – Deviljho uses a tailwhip in its normal form. This tailwhip will usually occur when a hunter is behind the monster. Given the creatures size, it is often hard to avoid when Deviljho tailwhips.
  • Jump – Deviljho can jump in the air and come crashing to the ground. This can damage hunters, but usually just emits a tremor.
  • Charge – Charges towards the hunter/across the arena dealing damage to those that are in the way.
  • Shoulder Charge – Similar attack to that of Bazelguese. Puts its head/shoulders into the ground and charges forward.
  • Bite – Will bite at the hunt when near its face.

Enraged Form: Deviljho’s backstory is basically that it needs to constantly be eating in order to survive. This means that midfight, you may have it run off to eat other monsters. In the eating state, Deviljho wields its prey like a weapon, keeping it locked in its jaws. You will also notice that Deviljho begins to glow red sometimes. This is its enraged from. When red, Deviljho becomes incredibly aggressive.

  • Tailwhip – Deviljho uses a tailwhip in its Enraged form. This tailwhip will usually occur when a hunter is behind the monster. Given the creatures size, it is often hard to avoid when Deviljho tailwhips.
  • Dragonfire Breath – When enraged, Deviljho uses Dragonfire Breath. Like other dragons, this monster charges for a couple of seconds and then releases a horizontal sweeping blast.
  • Jump – Deviljho can jump in the air and come crashing to the ground. This can damage hunters, but usually just emits a tremor.
  • Charge – Charges towards the hunter/across the arena dealing damage to those that are in the way.
  • Shoulder Charge – Similar attack to that of Bazelguese. Puts its head/shoulders into the ground and charges forward.
  • Bite – Will bite at the hunt when near its face.
  • Other Monsters – Deviljho will bite and carry around other monsters in its mouth when it is hungry. It wields these monsters like a club and will use them to smash the hunters.

Deviljho Fight Tips

Deviljho is definitely a tough fight. This monster is huge, mobile and almost always aggroed. This makes the fight a bit of a pain as it can cover seemingly huge areas with ease and often deals damage just by moving around. With that being said, here are a few tips to make the Deviljho fight a little bit easier.

  • Eat up – Head into the fight having eaten a meal from the Canteen (do this for every fight to make life easier).
  • Bring Nullberry and Healing – Make sure you have Nullberry and healing on you. Going into the fight without them makes it way harder. Add on some Armorskin if your defense is lacking.
  • Bring the Dragonproof Mantle – Complete the Special Investigation involving Deviljho to unlock the Dragonproof Mantle. This mantle negates Dragonblight and is really useful in the Deviljho fight.
  • Aim for the legs – Deiljho has very small legs so try to aim for them as much as possible. The more you next this monster over, the easier the fight.
  • Stand Beside its Head When Breathing Dragon Fire: Like other monsters that breath fire in MHW, Deviljho is vulnerable as it breathes fire. Try to get beside its head when it starts this attack and you can deal some decent damage.
  • SOS – If you need to, send out an SOS and get some extra help from the MHW community.

Note: share your tips in the comments and I will add them here.
