Mycongus (マイコングス, Maikongusu) is a Brute Wyvern.
Mycongus sports charcoal black scales on its body. It has a round head with an elongated snout. Like most Brute Wyverns, it has muscular legs but very small arms in comparison. The most noticeable feature on Mycongus's body is the fungus that grows on it. This fungus is primarily rust colored, with white marbled patterns. This fungus takes the shape of appendages on its body. While its tail is actually short and stubby, the fungus makes it appear of almost equal length to its body. The fungus portion of the tail holds a spherical club at the end. The fungus also forms long forearms with four clawed digits that conceal its actual arms. The fungus even forms wings on its back that allow the Brute Wyvern to glide.
Thanks to the fungus on its body, Mycongus can produce a variety of ailment-inducing spores from its body. Red spores inflict Blastblight, yellow spores cause Paralysis, purple spores cause Poison, light green spores induce Sleep, and brown spores cause Soiled.
Mycongus are usually seen inhabiting the Ancient Forest, Everwood, Sunken Hollow, and the Swamp.
Wyverns that share a symbiotic relationship with a special fungus that grows only on its body. This unique fungus forms the wyvern's tail and wings. Mycongus can spread harmful spores from its body that inflict a wide variety of status ailments, including poison, paralysis, and sleep.

Mycongus have been found inhabiting the Everwood, Jurassic Frontier, Marshlands, and the Sunken Hollow in the Old World.
Mycongus holds "middle ground" in the food chain. It is omnivorous and mainly feeds on insects, herbs, and mushrooms. They would much rather avoid predators than initiate a fight, using their spores to deter them and escape.
Mycongus's main feature is the special fungus that grows only on its body. This fungus shares a symbiotic relationship with the wyvern, forming long arms, half of tails, and wings that enable it to glide. The spores themselves have harmful side effects should they come into contact with anything that is not a Mycongus. These spores are used to defend the wyvern by inflicting various status effects. Red spore causes Blastblight and are similar to the explosive dust produced by the Elder Dragon Teostra. Yellow spores cause Paralysis, and are laced with a neurotxin that is absorbed into the skin on contact. Purple spores cause Poison, and are coated with venom. Light green spores induce Sleep, and contain a sleep-inducing chemical. Brown spores cause Soiled, and have a repulsive odor to them.
Mycongus are not very aggressive compared to other wyverns but are prone to aggression if provoked.
