How to Defeat Bishaten in Monster Hunter Rise

March towards the lake where you will find Bishaten. Bishaten will be enraged, and the boss fight will start. Remember that the best way to take down Bishaten is by continuously attacking its tail. Take your antidote for a health boost and dodge Bishaten’s tail attacks.

Stay at proximity but also be wary of Bishaten’s fruit and tail attacks. The tail should be your primary area of focus on Bishaten’s body.

Bishaten’s fruits are supposed to break on impact, but if you manage to interrupt Bishaten while he’s about to throw the fruit, he will instead drop the fruit; allowing you to use them to your benefit.

The three types of fruit he will use are Poison Fruit, which inflicts poison on the target; Jumbo Fruit, which can be used to recover HP and Flash Fruit, which acts as a flashbang.

So whenever he drops his fruit, make sure to grab the Jumbo Fruit to regenerate your health. But while you’re doing so, watch out for the poisonous fruit around you.

Attack the wings and face when you get the chance. Jump and attack Bishaten from above.

Bishaten will run away to the alleyway nearby. You’ll find him hiding nearby some huts; this is your chance to attack him with full force. Select the Attack and Ride Wyvern option and get on Bishaten’s back. It will be hard to control Bishaten, but it will cause him some damage.

He’ll toss you off his back, be continuous with your attacks and keep hitting him on the head to keep him down on the ground. This will drain him out of his health. Bishaten will do a tailspin; the best way to tackle this spin would be to attack his tail.

Make sure to dodge his tail attacks as they will strike you. Make sure to take your antidote to restore health.

Eventually, Bishaten will run off to a distant spot and launch his fruit attacks from there.  At this point, you should be aware of five types of attacks by Bishaten.
