Pokemonster Hunter-Charizard


Been tinkering around with a Monster Hunter version of Charizard.  I ended up with an amalgam of most of my favorite Monster Hunter designs, mostly Rathalos, Fatalis, and Lagiacrus.  I thought it would be totally sweet for his mega evolutions to be subspecies variants akin to Fatalis.  I imagine he uses his explosive tail as a club a lot during the fight.  Maybe I'll draw up some fighting poses for him as well as armor based on this design.  It would be super cool to have a hammer based on his tail I think.  I included his angered versions here as animated fire as a proof of concept.  It would be so freaking cool to see him rear up and roar while fire shoots out the sides of his neck.

If this was in a monster hunter game the alternates would be named something like "Midnight Flare Charizard" and "Sky Prince Charizard" or something like that

Charizard - Once thought as a mythical creature from a child's story book, the Charizard is normally a peaceful monster, but will become aggressive towards any challengers that intrude on its territory. Initially, the creature will attempt to intimidate its foes by igniting the craters amongst its neck and tail, followed by the swinging of said tail in front of its body. A Charizard's wings can produce powerful winds as a means of throwing off smaller enemies. If tamed, the Hunter will be rewarded with its loyalty and companionship, as the giant will look after its new master.

Charizard (X Subspecies) - These variants of Charizard are said to be much more aggressive towards intruding Hunters or monsters, as they will generally set ablaze anything outside its own kind, especially the Charizard race it looks akin to. It is said that these creatures were once normal Charizards, but hatched in an entirely new, yet for obvious reasons unexplored, environment dubbed Cavern X. Due to the dark home the hatchlings inhabit, their once orange scales gradually turn black and their under bellies blue. While researchers are unsure of the true cause of the changes, no matter the color, the fire any Charizard breathes will incinerate anything caught in the path of the inferno. Should any Hunter try to tame this beast, they must have a complete understanding of the base species first, as the battle tactics of Charizard "X" is primarily the same, but with a lot more brute strength.

Charizard (Y Subspecies) - Rumor has it that a Charizard youngling was abandoned by its parent atop a great mountain top not too recently named Summit Y. Due to the environment, the little babe had two options, starve or adapt. Choosing the latter, the infant, in a sense, "evolved" to suit its new home. The wingspan of this Charizard subspecies is wider and thicker so that, upon diving from its perch, the strong winds will not tear the monster's wings to ribbons. Charizard "Y" also sports wing-like appendages on its forearms to aid its main wings, and upon observation they have been seen utilized as rudders for steering. Often would travellers or passerbys see one or two of these creatures circling the summit, as if they were dancing. These behaviors have been deduced, but not confirmed, to be a means of attracting a mate. This subspecies of Charizard seem to display a higher intellect compared to the base species and the X subspecies. Due to little interaction on its home turf, they show no fear towards Hunters that cross their path, but will attack if necessary. To tame one, a Hunter must spend long hours (of which they will most likely not get back) with the high flying monster, not in combat, but in tandem tranquility. Only when the beast bows its head must the Hunter return the gesture to finalize their bond.

Mounting this thing would be such a pain. ;v;
I would fail to defeat this thing, because I'm struggling with a Pink Rathian. -v-'
