An Espinas subspecies with a slightly more muted body color. The boldness of the standard Espinas remains: run-of-the-mill attacks won't rouse Flaming Espinas from their slumber. Their breath attack contains a powerful poison, and a dense acid that deteriorates armor. Take this attack head-on, and you won't stand a chance...

Flaming Espinas Elemental weakness in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

Flaming Espinas is even more difficult to fight than the standard species. This is because of this ridiculous aggression and ruthless combination of attacks laced with flame and poison. The longer the fight, the harder it will be to survive, so you'll want to bring it down as soon as possible. We recommend you use a Water weapon to achieve this. In most other means of elemental damage, Flaming Espinas will just shrug off. Its legs and abdomen are its main weak spots, so aim for as much as possible.
