The Viper Tobi-Kadachi is weakest to Thunder. No other element will cause three-star damage, but a few elements and ailments will do two-star damage. View the complete list below:


  • Fire: 1
  • Water: 0
  • Thunder: 3
  • Ice: 2
  • Dragon: 1


  • Poison: 1
  • Sleep: 2
  • Paralysis: 1
  • Blast: 2
  • Stun: 2

Be sure to bring your best Thunder weapon when hunting this monster. On top of that, consider bringing the Poison Charm 3, which will make you immune to Poison and Noxious Poison, two things this monster is most known for. I also packed the Cleanser Booster since I don’t trust random players to avoid being poisoned themselves, as well as the Vitality Mantle so I could get up close and personal sometimes and not worry too much about taking damage.

Your first fight with the Viper Tobi-Kadachi will start off alone. Once the cut scene plays, head back to base and hit up the quest board. You can join someone else who is hunting the Viper Tobi-Kadachi instead of trying to take it on alone. When the fight does begin, utilize the Clutch Claw to knock the monster over and make it vulnerable to massive damage.
