Lavasioth is a bipedal Piscine Wyvern that resides in lava rather than water. Its body is covered with hardened magma, forming a tough outer shell. Its head is fish-like in nature, with rounded features and large, circular eyes. Its mouth is filled with sharp, needle-like fangs. Its legs are large with hard rock scales and end in fins rather than claws. Unlike other Piscine Wyverns, Lavasioth lacks wing-like fins. Instead, it has only a pair of medium-length pectoral fins. It has a long, thick tail to assist in when swimming through the thick magma it resides in.
Its attacks and movements are vaguely similar to those of a Plesioth. It can fire huge balls of magma at hunters. When these hit the ground, they scatter into smaller molten rocks which can still do considerable damage. Lavasioth is known to use its heavy body weight to slam or crush attackers.
Lavasioth is a rarely-seen Piscine Wyvern, living and swimming in lava. Like most large monsters, it is territorial and will attack intruders on sight.
Lavasioth lives in the Volcano area.

Hard Core (HC) Lavasioth
In Monster Hunter Frontier Season 8.0, HC Lavasioth was introduced, complete with several new attacks. It can rear up and fire a spread of fireballs into the air, which fall and damage hunters around it, and it can fire more projectiles from within the lava. It can also use double body-slams.
