Black Diablos (ディアブロス亜種,   Diaburosu Ashu, lit. Diablos subspecies) are giant burrowing specifically female[citation needed] wyvern monsters featured in the 2020 film, Monster Hunter. They are based on the monster species of the same name from the Capcom Monster Hunter video game franchise.


Diablo's name is derived from the Spanish word diablo or diablos, which translates to devil or devils in English. Within the context of the movie itself Black Diablos is simply addressed by characters as Diablos (ディアブロス,   Diaburosu), however in multiple official interviews with the movie director Paul W. S. Anderson has addressed the creature as Black Diablos,[citation needed] with this reflecting the monster's appearance. In multiple instances of official marketing material for the film both Black Diablos and Diablos have been used interchangeably and coloration of the monster varying as well.


Black Diablos are large reptilian monsters that resemble wyverns, they have two legs with four claws on both feet, and two wings with three-digit clawed hands. The head of Black Diablos resemble the head of Triceratops, with two large, curved horns, and a frill. Black Diablos have large horns that curve at a forward-facing angle and they have frontward-facing red eyes. She has beak-like mouth, as well as two upward-facing tusks on either side of the mouth. Black Diablos are covered in osteoderm-like growths, while the neck has a rigid segmented armor-like appearance before reaching a large, armored hump that resembles the frill on her head. Her wing tips face upwards when folded and she posses three large claws for burrowing in the sand. Her tail also features the rigid, segmented appearance the neck does all the way to the tip of the tail. Her tail has a club at the end which bares resemblance to a labrys, a double-sided axe weapon.


Black Diablos are extremely territorial, a pair of Black Diablos attacked the sandship when it came into their territory, preventing them from safely crossing the desert. the Black Diablos that attacked Artemis was also extremely aggressive and unrelenting, going as far as using so much force to attempt to catch Artemis and her squadron that she broke her own horn off in the process.
