Yamatoros (ヤマトロス, Yamatorosu) is an Elder Dragon.
Yamatoros is a quadrupedal Elder Dragon that shares the same general build as other Elder Dragons, with a pair of large wings. Its body is covered in brilliant golden scales with a light yellow belly and wing membranes. Its rectangular head has a pair of white horns that point back and curve forward, and has a row of dark yellow spines traveling down its neck. Its tail splits in two near the tip, with each tip having a small club that sports a single spike. Its front feats bears three claws toes while its back feet have four.
Yamatoros can shoot powerful electric bolts from its mouth. A single blast of electricity from this Elder Dragon is said to contain up to 1 billion volts, the same amount in naturally occurring lightning. Its electricity comes from a special battery-like organ. Unlike other electrical organs in certain monsters, Yamatoros possess a finite amount of energy it can use. Once its energy has been depleted, it basks in the sun with its wings spread, absorbing solar energy and converting it into electricity, which it uses to "recharge" its electrical organ.
Yamatoros, while not having the same flight maneuverability as Rathalos or Kushala Daora, is one of the fastest flying monsters to live. Their top speed is unknown, but they have been confirmed to reach over 100 mph in flight. Only the Elder Dragon Barufaruku outspeeds Yamatoros.
Being an Elder Dragon, Yamatoros are destructive, aggressive creatures. They are said to kill for sport rather than for food.
Yamatoros are only said to live in the Heaven's Mount. However, they are occasionally seen in the Sanctuary and Tower Summit. They are also known to attack the Battlequarters.
- Yamatoros is based off the kaiju King Ghidorah, which in turn is based off the Yamata no Orochi.
- Its head can be broken twice, both wings can be broken, and its tail can be severed.
- Yamatoros's roar requires HG Earplugs to block.
