Naruga is devious. He may look like a Tigrex, but his attacks and patterns are very different. First of all you will notice that it seldom stops moving and if it does, it doesn’t become any less dangerous. When it charges for its jump or fur-spikes-attack, attack it from the side, a frontal attack is suicide.
Nargacugas most dangerous attack is its tailwhip where it slashes his tail (greatly extended) to the ground and smashes everything beneath it. If you however manage to evade this attack, you have plenty of time to land some hits on the tail and thereby cutting it off. In Narugas case flash bombs are a double-egdged sword. On one hand they make him lose focus, however it will start to aimlessly jump around and therefore hard to hit. The most useful tool for this monster is the shock trap. If you place it somewhere in the center of the zone and stand close to it, the likelyhood of the monster stepping on it is quite high.
