Dragons can be some of the coolest entities in fiction, ranging from noble and righteous to evil and scheming (while also just looking awesome). A wide range of dragons can be found in video games and regardless of their motivations, pretty much all of them are fearsome enemies. Let’s take a look at 10 of the more ferocious dragon bosses, and what they bring to the table.

Crimson Glow Valstrax – Monster Hunter Rise

Monster Hunter Rise - Crimson Glow Valstrax

Valstrax debuted in Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate and even for Elder Dragons, it was quite unorthodox. Its wings are the main feature – when it’s not spewing Dragon energy or unleashing it in homing projectile attacks, they’re used to stab the player in various ways. But perhaps the most dangerous aspect of Valstrax is when it “takes flight”, shooting off into the sky like a jet and crashing down for massive damage.

So what makes Crimson Glow Valstrax, introduced in Monster Hunter Rise, so much more dangerous? For one, its dragon energy is now completely out of control, making it much more aggressive to the extent that it will ambush players on hunts. Its round-the-world attack remains but now you’ll have to deal with exploding patches of dragon energy (which can cause Dragonblight) when it slams its wings down and energy beams.

Long story short, this is one fight you’ll need to bring your best gear to, and always remember to look up.
