The Jet Agsolestea is a Rare Species of Agsolestea that lives within the depths of highly volcanic regions.
Like its relatives, it is able to use its frills to gather energy and use it to power its elemental attacks. However, much like the Abyssal Lagiacrus, it constantly produces energy until its frills are broken. Unlike the Abyssal Lagiacrus, it can charge even more energy to make itself even more deadly.
A snake wyvern that lives deep in a volcano. Constantly producing energy within it, it is able to fire searing beams of heat energy. But when it decides to increase its own energy production rate, not even the best hunters can survive its enhanced firepower.

Physiology and Behavior
The Jet Agsolestea is a terribly rare subspecies of the Agsolestea. Unlike the more common variety, this species is not sexually dimorphic, meaning that males and females look the same. Like the Agsolestea, the Jet Agsolestea can swim - but since it prefers volcanic habitats, it swims through molten lava rather than water. Its skin is much like rock in texture and hardness, and the flesh underneath has a fiery glow. It is this characteristic that inspired legends of a serpent made of magma.
The Jet Agsolestea constantly absorbs heat through its frills, using that heat to power its internal flame sac. Unlike the common Agsolestea, though, its heat-absorbing ability is entirely involuntary. When it voluntarily increases its heat-absorption rate, its frills begin to glow fiercely and its fire-based projectiles become extremely deadly. It also retains the ability to spit venom and constrict its prey.
As with most "rare species", details about the Jet Agsolestea are largely unknown and are left up to speculation.
There are a lot of fantastic tales about the Jet Agsolestea, most of which say that it is a devilish serpent made out of pure magma. It is said to live deep inside the Earth's crust, only emerging from its lair when it is angry or hungry.
Jet Agsolestea cannot be infected by the Frenzy.
The existence of an Apex Jet Agsolestea has not been confirmed.
Jet Agsolestea can be carved four times, have its tail severed, have both frills and its belly broken, and drop an item. Note: Items are listed in order from most common to least common.
Double Quickstrike: Rears its head slightly back, then darts out and snaps with its fangs. When it retreats, it will do another right after it. If it has performed Super Flame Gather, a beam will shoot out of its jaws as it attacks. (Fireblight after performing Super Flame Gather)
Tail Swing: Turns its head to the side and hisses, then swings its tail in that direction. If it has performed Super Flame Gather, a beam will shoot out of its jaws as it attacks. (Fireblight after performing Super Flame Gather)
Tail Flick: Swings its tail twice in front of it.
Slithering Circles: Tenses its body up, then launches itself forward, slithering in a circle. It will sometimes do two or three of these before coiling up again. Often chains this with an Upward Spiral.
Intoxicating Spit: Draws back a little bit and bends its head close to the ground, then fires a huge blast of poison in front of it while retreating backwards. (Intoxicated)
Twisting Bite: Rears its head, hisses, and whips its tail behind it, then darts forward in an S-shape and bites savagely. Does two always. If it has performed Super Flame Gather, a beam will shoot out of its jaws as it attacks. (Fireblight after performing Super Flame Gather)
Upward Spiral: Twists itself into a tight ball, then "jumps" upwards in a spiraling motion. If it has performed Super Flame Gather, a beam will shoot out of its jaws as it attacks. (Fireblight after performing Super Flame Gather)
Flame Gather: Its frills start glowing orange as it coils up, then it uncoils and raises its head as a massive aura of fire wraps around it and reaches outwards. It is now able to use its elemental attacks. It only does this when both frills are broken. (Fireblight)
Super Flame Gather: Similar to its Flame Gather attack, it coils up while its frills glow brightly. However, when it uncoils, its frills will suddenly shine with a white-hot intensity, and it raises its head while a massive tornado of orange-and-white flames whirls around it while spreading outwards. Its elemental attacks will now become much deadlier. When it runs out of charge, its frills will go back to their normal orange glow. The Jet Agsolestea cannot use this attack when its frills are broken. (Fireblight)
Fireball: Performs the same animation as the Intoxicating Spit, but shakes its head while doing so. Then, shoots a fireball in front of it which will travel in an erratic path before disappearing with a small explosion of fire. If it has performed Super Flame Gather, the projectile will take half the time to fire and will be twice as big, as well as having a doubly-large explosion radius. (Fireblight)
Magma Beam: Wiggles its head and tail and screams, then lowers its head to the ground and fires a bright laser beam of lava. This attack can be aimed as well. If it has performed Super Flame Gather, the beam will double in diameter and leave a temporary trail of flames behind on the ground, which damages those who walk on it. (Fireblight)
Constrict: Does a quick turnaround in which it swings its tail back behind it, then darts forward and throws its tail out in front of it. It will then coil up around the hunter and Pin you for continuous damage. (Pin)
Roar: Rears up from its coiled position and releases a hissing roar, which requires High-Grade Earplugs to dodge.

- "Tartarus" refers to the Greek underworld.
- It uses the Tower theme rather than sharing a theme with its two counterparts.
- Its weapons are not upgraded from Agsolestea weapons, but instead have their own tree.
- Many of its weapons are reference to the underworld or being imprisoned, which is reference to the legends of the Jet Agsolestea.
- There is an Event Quest called Devils Unite that involves slaying a Jet Agsolestea and an Akantor at Lava Canyon.
