Rathalos / Rioreus (Japanese)
Trading Figure – Chouzoukei Damashii Monster Hunter #1
Origin: Monster Hunter video games
watch out hunter!!!
here comes the king, and he’s ready to blast those fireballs
Rathalos, my favorite creature from Capcom’s legendary video game, the Monster Hunter…
I remembered playing this game for the first time in the Playstation2 platform years ago
took almost an hour for me to hunt that Yian Kut Ku and Cephadrome for the first time, heheh
what a masterpiece, truly fabulous game concept… free roaming, RPG + skill based game, thousand of weapons and suits to make, and the best feature (especially for the PSP version), it is a multiplayer game
if you are a gamer and haven’t play it yet… dude!! grab one ASAP, seriously…
and here’s one of the most famous creature from that series, the Rathalos
I know I know, he’s not the toughest, nor the scariest, and even we might easily hunt one down, or maybe two with his female counterpart, but for me, he is the true mascot of the series
he got that charisma, and… c’mon guys, just level with me, the very first time you encounter this monster, you must be at least scarred silly right..?? he looks like the ultimate or the most epic boss you think you’ll encounter within the game right?
that’s why I still love him till now, even though you can easily “play” with him while bringing that hammer, like you know… he flew, he landed, he roared, he shoots fireball, aaaand… it’s HAMMER TIMEEEE!!
he offered you his weakness point to be hit, just like one of those carnival’s skill game, what a nice guy X D
um, he come with 3 color variants within the series, this original, Azure one and as his toughest color, the Silver one
the female counterpart or the Rathian is in the 2nd series of this trading figure line, with another 3 color variations but with a scarier pose, the poison Backflip attack!! I’ll scoop her later
hunters, be prepare to be hunted…
but for some pro players, this creature is the one who should be scarred
