Monster Hunter: World’s latest update brings back a series favorite monster: the massive, multi-toothed Deviljho. This pickle-shaped T-rex beast is one of the game’s most dangerous beasts and proves it by kicking the ass of every single monster it crosses paths with.


Deviljho is a massive brute wyvern that was introduced in Monster Hunter 3 that’s become something of a fan favorite. The hype for Deviljho’s appearance in Monster Hunter: World was through the roof, as hunters prepared for a beast that could challenge them more than the massive horned Diablos or the raging elder dragon Nergigante. The good news is that Deviljho’s finally here. The bad news is that he is systematically body slamming the entirety of the New World’s ecosystem.

While in the field in Monster Hunter: World creatures can engage in a turf war where they violently duke it out. In many cases, such as when the fire breathing Anjanath chomps down on the wobbly Great Jagras. Turf wars with Deviljho aren’t just a beating: they’re some kind of Fist of the North Star “You are already dead” stuff.

Here’s Deviljho chomping on the adorable Kulu-Ya-Ku. It’s pretty rough. This was spotted by Reddit user ladyphlemego.

That’s easy prey! What about the skinless meat dog Odagoron? This comes courtesy of Reddit user Dragon_KC.


Holy crap, that was horrifying. Those were low tier monsters though. What about the dreaded Diablos? That monster was so terrifying that my coworker Kirk Hamilton wrote about how it almost broke him like a wimpy twig. These come from users minjuleex and Lavernaa

Let that be your warning fellow hunters. Don’t expect good ol “Pickle Joe” to go down easy. Group up, use your best armor, and if a turf war starts maybe try to stay out of the way. I’m assembling a hunter party tonight and hope to bring news from the front following a successful victory. Or maybe he’ll just body slam me too. We’ll see.

MHW Deviljho seems easier than his previous versions. Watching him run around and destroy hunters in Tri still has a special place in my heart.

Also, Furious Rajang needs to happen.
