Monster Hunter Rise Bishaten Weaknesses

The main element of your attacks when tackling the Bishaten should be Ice, which deals much more damage than any other type. Fire is also an option.

Bishaten is an incredibly mobile monster, able to cling to walls and swing its tail to deal big damage up close. It'll also collect fruit in the environment to use as a weapon, with each having different effects. The purple fruit, for example, causes poison, while yellow fruit can paralyse.

Attack the tail first – it can't be severed, but you can cause Bishaten to fall over and drop its fruit, and then use it against it.


With an Ice-based weapon, you should be looking to cause Iceblight which would slow Bishaten down significantly.


It's also weak to Blast, so explosives are another solid choice when picking your gear.

Tips For Slaying the Bishaten in MH Rise

The Bishaten is a tricky customer, but there are some things that make it easier prey:

  • Bishaten's tail can't be severed, but you can knock it off balance to cause it to drop fruits.
  • One of these fruits, Jumbofruit, offers powerful healing for a hunter.
  • If Bishaten puts fruit in its tail, it means it's about to hit hard with a ground slam attack. Be sure to have an antidote ready for its poisonous attack, or a wirebug dodge if it's a yellow fruit – that one is essentially a flash pod.
  • If you grab some of its more offensive-focused fruit, you can launch it back at Bishaten.
  • If you have an ice-based weapon, aim for the Bishaten's head for the most damage.
