Gajuthanu (jap. Gaijiuthanusu) is a close relative of the mighty Gammoth. It is somewhat less hostile than its cousin, but can attack with pure force when angered. They have got two red tusks in their lower jaw, which they can use as weapons, but they often don't, because the tusks are in a bad position.


Gajuthanu looks similar to Gammoth, having several mammoth-like features. However, unlike Gammoth, it doesn't look much like a Woolly Mammoth, more like a mix between a Deinotherium and a Columbian Mammoth. Their trunk has several stripes on it, possibly to deter enemies, although their size often is frightening enough.

They are sometimes seen to help the villagers  of Belrina with some works, much like real life Asian Elephants, though only the females can be used as helpers, as the males often are to aggressive,especially when in musth. When they are in musth, their trunk changes from sandy brown to striking red, the stripes get very deep black coloured. Because the males are extremely dangerous when in musth, there are special quests, G3 only, that sends hunters to hunt such males.


Females (which can be determined by having shorter tusks and being smaller) are friendly and don't fight. Usually, they flee as fast as possible, when they encounter an enemy. They are powerful, but won't use their power as much as the males do.

Males are bigger and have longer tusks. They can be quite aggressive, especially, when in musth. But whenever they are not in musth, they still shouldn't be challenged, though they are less menacing than their cousins, Gammoth.


Gajuthanu Icon A big, steppe dwelling elephant. These monsters are not as hostile as their cousins, Gammoth, and the females are used by the villagers of Belrina to help them with building things, etc. The males are very dangerous, and when they get in musth, they can destroy an entire forest.

Sanddevil Gajuthanu

The Deviant of Gajuthanu, introduced in Monster Hunter Online Generations Unite, the expansion to MHOG. It is a Gajuthanu that has had its mates slain in a horrible way, leaving it in a extremely aggressive state out of sorrow. It has replaced its mates with a Mikiragaan enslaved by a pheromone it produces that is identical to that of a Mikira, who is always in quests with it now, like with the Seltas Queen. Because of its extreme aggression, and the similarly aggressive Mikiragaan that is with it that can even be Forestguardian Mikiragaan, the Sanddevil is considered to be the strongest Deviant in that FanGame, even beyond Elder Dragon Deviants.


The Gajuthanu is a distant relative of the new-found Gammoth. It holds the place for the second-biggest Fanged Beast found in the world.

It inhabits places like the Ancestral Steppe and the Highland, usually places with more mountains. But it can also be found living in the humid Primal Forest.

Gajuthanu feeds on several plants and seeds, but will occasionally crush trees to eat the bark and the branches. This behavior makes it an optimal partner for the mighty Mikiragaan - they will team up when encountered together. Thus the Gajuthanu hasn't got any potential threats, even Deviljho avoids it as best as possible due to their hatred for Mikiragaan and the sheer size and power of Gajuthanu. 

When teamed up with Mikiragaan, one can see that they are similar in size, the Gajuthanu being a hint bigger than Mikiragaan. Unlike the Gammoth it only has fur on its upper body and tail, the rest of its skin being exposed. That is not a problem for this beast, as the skin is very thick. Its trunk is a bit longer than a Gammoth's and the tusks are far different - they grow out of the lower jaw and bend upwards. They are a weapon, but the Gajuthanu doesn't use it often, because it is too difficult. The tusks are bright red and used as a threat display however.


  • When encountered with Mikiragaan, it will team up with it, possibly hinting any sort of symbiotic relationship.
  • Oddly, when brought together with Gammoth - for example in the quest with both in the Arena - the Gajuthanu will behave in a strange manner, showing a submissive manner. However, when both are enraged, they will attempt to kill each other.
  • When fatigued, it will feed either on a large seed it tears out of the floor, or it will crush a tree and eat it.
    • When found with Mikiragaan, the Brute Wyvern will also eat from the remains of the tree.
    • This could again be a hint to any sort of symbiose.
