Therizinos (テリジノス, Terijinosu) is a Brute Wyvern.
Therizinos is a Brute Wyvern identified by their developed forelimbs which hold long, sharp claws. These claws are relatively straight, only gradually tapering into a sharp point, and extremely narrow, transversely flattened. Its hide is a red color with black stripes on its backside and a gray underside. The legs sport a single dewclaw and end in feet with three clawed toes. The tail is long, covered in rings of spines, and ends in a round club with spikes that resemble its claws.
Therizinos's main weapons are its long claws that is uses to slash, slice, and cut up both prey and predators.
Therizinos is rather calm and docile until it notices a predator or potential prey. That is when it becomes highly aggressive and will viciously attack its target until either Therizinos or the target is dead.
Therizinos are mostly seen inhabiting rocky, mountainous areas such as the Misty Peaks and Heaven's Mount.

Therizinos is classified as a Brute Wyven. This class of monsters include Brachydios, Uragaan, and Deviljho.
Therizinos have only been seen living within the Misty Peaks of the New World and the Heaven's Mount of the Old World.
Therizinos are opportunistic omnivores, feeding on whatever they can get their claws on. They use their claws either to slice up fruits and plant matter or to tear apart Herbivores such as Gargwa, Kelbi, Rhenoplos, and Bullfango. Lesser predatory monsters like Jaggi, Jaggia, Ioprey, Remobra, Conga, and small Neopterons might also be potential prey. Monsters like Arzuros, Bulldrome, Great Jaggi, Qurupeco, and Royal Ludroth in the Misty Peaks and Congalala and Seltas in the Heaven's Mount also fall victim to Therizinos. Even though it's a ferocious beast, it competes with equally vicious monster such as Rathalos, Rathian, their respective subspecies, Zinogre, Deviljho, Nargacuga and its Green Subspecies in the Misty Peaks. The massive, aggressive, herbivorous Duramboros might also prove to be a challenge. Competitors in the Heaven's Mount are the aforementioned Rathalos, Rathian, their respective subspecies, Zinogre, and Deviljho, also including Gore Magala, Seregios, Tigrex, its Brute Subspecies, and Seltas Queen. Despite its lack of special breath powers, Therizinos is a surprisingly well defended predator that's more than capable of fending for itself.
Therizinos's most recognizable feature are its long, highly developed forelimbs and the equally long claws found on its digits. These claws are extremely sharp and can cut through the strongest of armors like a hot knife through butter. It uses these claws for feeding, fighting, and climbing.
Therizinos are usually calm and docile and can be found eating most of the time. Once Therizinos has spotted prey, a predator, or a hunter, it becomes incredibly aggressive and will viciously attack its assailant until either the Brute Wyvern or its target falls dead.
- The name Therizinos is taken from the dinosaur Therizinosaurus which is derived from the Greek word θερίζω (therizo) meaning 'to reap' or 'to cut off' and σαυρος (sauros) meaning 'lizard'.
- Therizinos will feed on Gargwa, Kelbi, Rhenoplos, or a carcass to recover stamina.
