Jade Barroth Brings His Ugly Mug To Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

By Ishaan . March 5, 2013 . 11:30am

The Barroth has a sub-species in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, too—the Jade Barroth. Capcom recently shared a profile along with screenshots of him. Check it out below.


Official name: Jade Barroth

Type: Brute Wyvern

So maybe the Qurupeco wasn’t a big problem for you… but the Barroth was sure to be a challenge to a lot of people as it plowed through the muddy areas of the Sandy Plains, charging really fast at its targets. It definitely caught me by surprise the first time I fought it.


Now the subspecies Jade Barroth is here to torment you in the Tundra environment! So, on top of having to keep track of its unique plowing charge patterns, you will also have to focus on staying warm. By the time you reach this quest, you should know very well to always carry Hot Drinks when hunting in the Tundra, or equip yourself with an armor set that keeps you warm.


Also, keep in mind that the Jade Barroth can use its forehead to plow through the snow and even toss huge snowballs in your direction. And since it is usually covered in snow, it will often times try to shake some of it on you and get you snowed in. This will limit your mobility and prevent you from using any items. The only exception to this is the item that cleans the snow off of you: a Cleanser.


Again, this shouldn’t be news to you if you’re a proficient Barroth hunter, but the combination of these with the introduction of new charging patterns makes this an interesting fight. And one more thing: there are Baggis in the Tundra… and they can put you to sleep, which is quite a disadvantage!


Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be released on March 19th in North America and March 22nd in Europe.

    Barroth was an odd one in Tri. There were many moments in which we were kinda circling around each other. But This guy knew how to bring the pain. It always felt good killing him in the end.

    Also, dat hunting horn

  • Crevox

    This was the first real hunt in Tri. (the original version, that is)

    • Showmeyomoves

      “The real Monster Hunter starts here.”

  • J_Joestar

    Barroth was pretty tough at first, but the real annoying “Charging Crazy” monster is Diablos imo, though you do have to pass that Barroth “Wall” first.

    • Showmeyomoves

      Barroth was definitely my “wall” as well. I think it was my turning point, too. Once I figured out how to beat him, I was completely hooked on the game. I can’t remember the last time a videogame made me feel so satisfied, proud and relieved.

        then suddenly high rank quropeco “NO QURO NO”

    • Yeah I agree, was hard at first but then you quickly learn that the Barroth is very predictable, so I easily took him down the 3rd time around.

  • gamerdude

    That moment when it’s about to charge but your switch-axe pierces through the head this time and stuns the enemy.

    I still remember the feeling of my heart skipping over several beats.
