Baixiling is a Behemoth first appearing in Monster Hunter World Cataclysm.


Baixiling is a large, quadrupedal monster with a mixture of white and light grey scales, with darker grey plating on its underbelly. Across its back are rows of plate-like scales, with gaps in-between them so that Aether mist can be ejected. Its shoulders have thick spiked plating shooting upwards, giving the appearance of vestigial wings. It is very similar to a gorgonopsid in appearance, with somewhat straighter legs than its close relative, the Kurdanoth, however the Baixiling does retain somewhat splayed legs. Its legs end in clawed feet, each claw thick and sharp, and good for climbing over any terrain. Its tail is long and ends in a small club, and can be used like a battering whip. Its head is more pointed, with saber-like fangs jutting from its upper jaw and curving backwards, however the rest of its teeth are almost flat, like grinders, to chew up plant matter. In its sockets are a pair of red eyes, making the Baixiling similar to creatures with albinism in appearance, though it does not suffer from the condition.


The Baixiling is a large monster with strong limbs, which it mostly uses for climbing over all types of terrain, but can also use them to crush any would-be aggressors. Its long tail can whip at its foes very easily, battering them or flinging them away. The Baixiling utilises the Aether element by creating chemicals in several glands on its body, but mainly through a throat-sac. This creates a mist of Aether that always enshrouds the monster, particularly when enraged. These Aether clouds protect the monster from some attacks and are dangerous for creatures that come too close.
