P1 8 Flight of the Rathalos

J. R. G. Thompson, L. L. Blase, R. Blue, C. L. Kelly


In this paper we examine the mechanics of flight in Monster Hunter: World, and whether a Rathalos would be able to fly as depicted in the game. We calculate that the minimum flapping frequency to maintain a hovering state is 1.81 Hz, and conclude that a Rathalos would be unable to fly as it is portrayed in Monster Hunter: World due to its flapping frequency of 1.71 Hz.
