Afflicted Monsters | Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak|Game8 (118)

Elder Dragons can also be afflicted by the Qurio, but these monsters are able to overcome it and enter a Risen state. In the Risen state, they gain an orange coloration and gain new moves and stronger attacks.

Version 12 of Sunbreak introduces Risen Chameleos as the first of these powered-up monsters and Version 13 adds Risen Kushala Daora and Risen Teostra. Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax was added in Version 14, and Risen Shagaru Magala was added in Version 15. All Risen Elder Dragons can be encountered in A8★ or A9★ Anomaly Research Quests and Investigations.

Powerful Monsters Which Cannot Be Captured

Afflicted Monsters | Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak|Game8 (119)

Afflicted monsters are a new type of monster with extremely high HP and stronger attacks. While they are afflicted, their attacks can deal Bloodblight. This status condition allows you to steal health every time you attack, but it gradually drains and reduces your health, natural health recovery, and health recovery from items. In addition, while they can be caught in Traps, they cannot be captured.

Deal Damage to Knock Out Delirious State

Afflicted Monsters | Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak|Game8 (120)

Afflicted monsters have two states - the Delirious State and the Pacified State. While Delirious, afflicted monsters appear red and gather Qurio energy in Anomaly Cores. When Pacified and knocked out of their rage, these monsters leave a large opening, allowing hunters to wail on it before it becomes Delirious again.

Afflicted Monsters | Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak|Game8 (121)

Afflicted monsters can be put in the Pacified State by dealing enough damage to them in a given time. This can be easily done by targeting the Anomaly Cores, which damages about 1% of the monster's max health when destroyed. Failing to pacify the monster on time will cause it to unleash an Anomaly Burst, a powerful area-of-effect attack that can knock out nearby hunters.
