A massive Flying Wyvern listed by the guild as being equal to, if not more powerful than some of the Elder Dragons. Akantor is considered one of the most powerful non-Elder Dragon monsters, once it was even going to be classified as an Elder Dragon. Despite being classified as a Flying Wyvern, this creature cannot fly and is only listed as such due to having structural similarities to Tigrex.

In-game description: A wyvern shrouded in mystery and known by many names -- "the black god" to some, "the tyrant of fire" to others, but usually called "Akantor" by the Guild. Its giant spines and tusks make for a fearsome sight in the volcanic areas it frequents.
