Stay on the Move

Majority of Tigrex’s attacks are lunging moves which can be avoided by dodging to its side. Always reposition yourself when it face you to avoid most of its attacks.

Do not let your guard down even when at a good distance away from Tigrex. It can hit you from afar with a rock projectile or leap toward you. The latter allows it to close the gap at surprisingly long distances.

Bring Nulberries

Tigrex’s attacks can inflict iceblight and waterblight, which reduce stamina recovery and increase its consumption. Use nullberies to cure yourself. You cannot afford to have limited mobility when fighting Tigrex.


Tigrex can unleash a powerful roar that can deal damage when you are within its area of effect. You can wear pieces of the bazelgeuse armor set, slot earplug jewels into your armor, or use the earplug III charm to gain immunity to its roar.

Use the Vitality and Temporal Mantles

Tigrex’s relentless behavior makes it an incredibly dangerous monster to deal with. Use the vitality and temporal mantles to survive a fatal blow if Tigrex manages to clip you or chase you into a corner. The vigorwasp revival tool is also good for giving you a second wind instead of being sent back to camp after fainting.

Multiple Charge to Tail Spin

Tigrex can perform multiple charging attacks in a row that can sometimes end with a tail spin. Run sideways to avoid the charging attacks and wait for it to throw out the tail spin before punishing it with your own strikes.

Watch out for Follow-up Attacks

After knocking you down, Tigrex will often follow up with a second attack as you get up. Delay your rise to avoid getting hit twice in a row. The second strike is likely to stun you, allowing Tigrex to finish you off.
