Took a couple of weeks off from the game to clear Final Fantasy Anniversary Edition and now I am back in the hunt. Met one of the creepiest monster of the game so far. It’s name, Oonazuchi, according to Thundrestrike from the PlayStation.com Forums. While there are a few out of the Monster Hunter world monster design in the game, the Kirin being one of them, none more so than Oonazuchi for me. It probably doesn’t looks so from the screen below but you must check it out in-game.
The monster appears to be created from a combination of several body parts from various creatures and it has the frog-like tongue that snares for your precious items. What’s more, it’s invisible for most of the time! However, you can still hurt it even if it’s still in stealth mode, so imaging you hitting at the air but blood are pouring out (which will probably had its volume reduced in the US version). Just pure fun!
While Oonazuchi is relatively easy to dispatch, it does features stealth attacks that fortunately, other monsters in the game don’t have. Most of the times you just won’t know where it will be coming from, and it’s only meters away from you when you realized it. This is certainly one of the highlights of the game for me so far.
Check out my (not always helpful) strategy against Oonazuchi here. Screenshot is Monster Hunter Frontier version of the same thing, just a whole lot bigger, via Famitsu.
