This flying wyvern can be located in the Sadona Barrens in the Eastern Lamure Desert. He will sleep peacefully, but expect powerful attacks once you wake him up.
Similar to a regular Tigrex, this royal monster is weak to electric damage. Again, you can use a Shock Trap to paralyze him, then aim for his head with one of your blunt weapons. But it is advisable to use a hammer in this case instead of a hunting horn.

White Monoblos is mostly vulnerable to Electric damage and piercing weapons. You can use your bow or spear to damage its legs, tail, and horns. Basically use the same strategy as with normal Monoblos, but remember that this monster will be harder to beat.
