MHW-Raphinos Render 001


Raphinos are wingdrakes that resemble parrots or tapejarid pterosaurs. They have a light pink skin and wings with ribbon-like appendages hanging from them.


Raphinos will peacefully roam the coral landscape in large flocks, occasionally feeding on coral eggs. The flock can be cleverly led to certain places if a hunter grabs hook on one, as the rest will follow where that individual will go.
