Amarganix is a Sauridian notable for the large spines located on its neck. It utilizes freezing rocks and soil in battle, spewing them at anything that would threaten it.

Physiology

Amarganix
N/A Small Sauridians notable for their long neck spines, which they use to skewer predators and rivals, injecting them with a paralyzing venom. They can utilize frozen rocks and soil to their advantage, rapidly draining foes' stamina while wearing away their weapons' strength, and their spines change colour depending on their current mood.


Amarganix is quite small for a Sauridian, reaching a standard length of 33 feet, and has the standard Sauridian build, with a long neck, a small head, a bulky torso, a long tail, and column-like legs. However, it has some visual differences to set itself apart from the others. It has many elongated, bifurcated spines on its neck that act similar to horns, being used to stab foes, and smaller spines can be found on its back. Its back is covered in a navy blue carapace, and its body is primarily azure, with its underbelly and the banded markings appearing on its legs and back being whitish-blue, and the spines are emerald green. The colour of these spines will change depending on its current mood: green indicates a normal demeanour, red indicates anger, and blue indicates exhaustion. In addition, it has a large, azure club at the end of its tail.

Biology

Amarganix is a herbivore and a fungivore, subsisting on a variety of tree leaves, herbs, shrubs, mushrooms, mosses, lichens, and grasses found within the Boreal Reef, and despite its small size compared to many other Sauridians, it has few predators and rivals due to its strength, with the only creatures being able to actively threaten it being monsters equal or greater than it in terms of power, such as Legiana, Tigrex, Barioth, Gammoth, Kirin, and other Amarganixes. Despite what its small legs would suggest, it is fairly quick for its size, being able to run at speeds of up to 30-40 mph, and this speed is due to it having sturdy leg bones that can greatly tolerate bending movements, which act as a limit regarding how fast an animal's maximum speed will be. Its neck is covered in many long, bifurcated spines, which act in a similar manner to horns, being used to stab foes whenever it points its neck down, and these spines secrete a neurotoxin that induces paralysis within seconds, which it maintains by eating Parashrooms. These spines can also create loud noises when clattered together, deafening foes within earshot of them, and males use these noises to attract mates, with the loudest sounds having the greatest potential when it comes to finding a mate. Furthermore, the spines also change colour depending on the monster's current mood, with green indicating tranquility, red indicating aggression, and blue indicating exhaustion. In addition to paralyzing toxins, it has a clubbed tail that can smash through barriers like rocks, and it can utilize weaponized permafrost to its advantage, spewing frozen rocks and beams of frozen soil at foes, even being able to summon giant pillars of permafrost that can crush smaller foes with ease, and it sustains this ability by consuming large quantities of rocks, soil, and ice. Similar to bull elephants and Mizutsune, males of the species develop a surge in testosterone levels during the mating season, causing them to become immensely aggressive and attack anything in sight, and they will even barge into nearby towns and cause wanton destruction in them, which is the main reason hunters are requested to cull them.

Behavior

Amarganix is generally placid, keeping to itself unless threatened or provoked, but will become highly aggressive during the mating season, attacking anything in sight, from other monsters and hunters to hapless passersby. This aggression is one of the reasons why hunters are requested to deplete their numbers.

Abilities

Amarganix exhibits control over the Permafrost element, spewing frozen rocks and beams made of frozen soil at enemies. The spines on its necks can be used to stab foes when it rears its head down, and they inject paralyzing venom upon impalement. Its mighty tail can smash though thick barriers in a single blow and inflict Stun upon contact. It is also quite fast for a creature its size, reaching top speeds of up to 40 mph, and when combined with its neck spines, it can use its speed to deadly effect.

Habitat

Amarganix thrives exclusively in the Hoarfrost Reach and the Boreal Reef.

Permafrost Pillar

Amarganix spews a beam of frozen soil towards the ground, then quickly raises its head up, causing the beam to form a massive pillar of frozen soil. It will then hide behind the pillar until it topples on its own to avoid damage, or send it falling down with a body check in order to crush the hunter, and once it hits the ground, it will burst into a large cluster of frozen soil that flies in randomized directions. This attack deals high damage and inflicts Severe Iceblight and Severe Earthblight, and once the pillar collapses and hits the ground beneath it, it will have quake effects that require Tremor Res +1 to negate.

Trivia

  • Amarganix was inspired by Amargasaurus, a sauropod notable for the large spines on its neck, and is named after it.
  • Amarganix is partially based on Aurorus, a sauropod-like Pokémon with a bifurcated sail on its neck.
  • When exhausted, Amarganix will fail to spit permafrost at hunters. It can recover stamina by feeding on herbs, tree leaves, seeds, or mushrooms.
  • Amarganix's title references how its spines change colour depending on its mood, with them turning into colours that are present during auroras.
    • Green auroras are the most common of them all, due to fairly high concentrations of oxygen at lower altitudes, along with human eyes being more sensitive to green light. Green is also associated with peace in Chinese culture. For these reasons, green was the colour chosen to reflect its tranquility, which is its most common state of mind.
    • Red auroras only appear at the highest altitudes, which is due to more intense solar activity and lower concentration of oxygen atoms occurring in them, along with the fact that human eyes are less sensitive to red light, which is why its spines flare red when enraged. Another reason why its spines flare red is because that colour represents rage.
    • Blue auroras only appear in very low altitudes, which is due to low oxygen levels, along with molecular nitrogen and ionized nitrogen taking over the role of producing visible light. For these reasons, its spines flare blue when exhausted. Another reason why blue was chosen is because low oxygen levels in the body can result in cyanosis, and one symptom of cyanosis is fatigue.
  • Instead of roaring, Amarganix will hiss at hunters while clattering its neck spines together when angered. The noise produced by the clattering requires Earplugs to block.
