Watch Out, Tigrex Spreads The Wyvern Virus In Monster Hunter 4

By Spencer . November 6, 2012 . 2:36pm


The feral wyvern virus warning shown at the end of a Monster Hunter 4 trailer is actually in the game and Tigrex spreads it. When you fight Tigrex an infection meter appears below your life bar and it fills up as you continue to fight Tigrex.


If it fills up your hunter catches the feral wyvern flu and that affects your natural recovery rate. You can reverse the effects of the wyvern flu to when you first caught the pathogen by repeatedly attacking the wyvern and defeating it.


Famitsu also has a few details about Goa Magara, a new black dragon-like monster. Goa Magara can sense things through its scales.


Monster Hunter 4 is slated for release in spring 2013 in Japan.

  • So, the W Virus made it to Monster Hunter? And who’s the secret evil organization? The Parasol Company?

    Just saw this on Nintendo Everything.
    Pretty horrifying actually…O.o;;
    The Tigrex (was) frightening enough on its own as it is…

    So does this mean I can get rid of my cold by punching the person who got me sick in the face?

    • Theoretically, that’s what our Felyne Scientists have proven that the most efficient way to fight a disease is to get to the source and pummel it to the ground until it can’t infect no more. Preferably, with a stick of some sort. The rest should be as simple as picking up the scales of your average Yian Kut-Ku.

     eww I have wyveies(rabies)

  • Namuro

    From what I could see so far, I’m pretty sure that Goa Magara must be the original carrier of the Wyvern Virus (or the Mad Dragon Virus…rather fitting, especially when it infects something as mad as a Tigrex), and now it goes around infecting other monsters.

    I wonder if the virus will affect all the boss monsters, or just the Wyvern types like the name implies.

    So… where’s the trailer?

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Now we know where Team Umbrella get their idea for T-Virus lol.^_^(Tigrex virus?)

    • Your username applies mostly to this situation, don’t you think so?

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    this sounds really stupid, wish they would leave out this silly virus thing, i liked it better when monster had a bit more realism to it.
