Scolocade (ドクムカデ, Dokumukade) is a Neopteron.
Scolocade is a centipede-like monster with a segmented body protected by a black exoskeleton adorned with crimson bands, and a pair of gold legs per segment. Long, gold, zigzag antennae similar to horns extend from its rounded, flattened head, as well as an identical pair of horns on its rear. It possesses a massive pair of gold pincer-like mandibles. Its compound eyes shine a bright blue.
Scolocade's mandibles are roughly the size of its head, which can penetrate the hard armor of certain prey. It also uses its mandibles to poison enemies. It travels underground for sneak attacks and has a nearly unbreakable, chitinous exoskeleton.
Scolocade is a very aggressive monster. It will attack and consume almost any creature that is not larger than itself.
Scolocade are found in a wide variety of areas, mainly the Jungle, Great Forest, Ancestral Steppe, Deserted Island, Everwood, Flooded Forest, Heaven's Mount, Jurassic Frontier, Marshlands, Primal Forest, and the Sunken Hollow.

Scolocade is a large centipede-like Neopteron. This class of monsters include Konchu, Seltas, and Seltas Queen.
Scolocade in the Old World have been seen living in the Jungle, Great Forest, Ancestral Steppe, Everwood, Heaven's Mount, Jurassic Frontier, Marshlands, Primal Forest, and the Sunken Hollow. In the New World they inhabit the Deserted Island, Flooded Forest, and Misty Peaks.
Scolocade is an opportunistic carnivore. It will attack and consume almost any monster that is not larger than itself. These include Rhenoplos and Aptonoth. Other creatures like Gendrome, Yian Kut-Ku, Kecha Wacha, or Great Jaggi may find themselves in risk of being eaten. The known competitors of this giant insect consist of Zinogre, Gore Magala, Brachydios, Dinovaldo, Rajang, and Elder Dragons like Teostra. But with an incredibly tough exoskeleton, powerful grasping mandibles, deadly venom and sharp horn-like feelers, they are a force to be reckoned with.
Scolocade possess a hard, tough exoskeleton that is used for protection. Scolocade also possess large, powerful, pincer-like mandibles that are the size of head that is uses to hold prey and inject a potent venom that slowly saps the victim's energy until it stops moving. Venom glands run through a tube to the tip of each mandible. The feelers on its head and rear are similar to horns and are quite sharp, easily capable of stabbing prey and predators. Its rear pair of antennae are actually a highly modified pair of legs.
This Neopteron is nervous and jumpy and may move rapidly if disturbed. It is very aggressive, feeding on almost everything it encounters that it can kill. They are known to employ unique strategies to catch airborne prey in which they can climb cave ceilings or tree branches and hold or manipulate their heavier prey with only a few legs attached to the ceiling/branch. During a fight, Scolocade will use its entire body to coil its enemies or prey with all its legs firmly attached to the body of the opponents. Scolocades will cut away at their prey when eating.
- The English name Scolocade is a combination of Scolopendra, a genus of centipedes, and the Japanese word ムカデ mukade (centipede).
- When enraged, Scolocade's eyes turn red, and huffs white smoke.
- The feelers on its head and rear can be broken along with the mandibles.
- When low on stamina it will fail to poison the Hunter with its mandible attacks.
- It will feed on carcasses to regain stamina.
