The Tobi-Kadachi in Monster Hunter World isn’t considered one of the tougher monsters to kill or capture. It’s kind of forgettable until you hear it described as a giant squirrel that can electrocute you and make your hunter vulnerable to subsequent attacks. That description usually does the trick for those that don’t recognize the name, but that still doesn’t help you kill it.

The first step to effectively killing or capturing any monster in Monster Hunter World is to understand both its weaknesses and strengths. Each monster has an entry at the chief ecologist, and in your very own Hunter’s Notes. This entry is created when you begin to learn about the monster by spotting it, tracking it, and fighting it. If you have not done this, your notes will be incomplete or missing altogether. Luckily, I take great notes.

The Tobi-Kadachi has two main weak points on its body; its head and its tail, with the tail being the more vulnerable of the two. This is represented in your notes using the star system. The two stars for weapons that cut, cause blunt damage, and for projectiles means they each do a reasonable amount of damage. If you look at the Tobi-Kadachi’s tail, however, you’ll see that all three weapon types (cutting, blunt, and projectile) each do three out of three stars worth of damage. When possible, target the tail of this monster over all other parts.
