- An albino subspecies of sahagin. Stronger and tougher than its common counterpart, it lives and hunts alone. It occasionally exits the water to prey on unsuspecting passerby—man and monster alike—leaving many would-be hunters injured in its wake.

Albinogin's attacks deal physical damage. They can lunge and latch onto the player and roll, but the player can button mash when the prompt appears to break free. The player can block and parry their lunge attack. They snap at their mouths at those close to them and whip their tail in a wide arc. Albinogins are weak to polearms, shields and ice.
Attacking the albinogins from behind works well to stay away from their fanged side (although they may still whip with their tail) and to hopefully inflict blindside-strikes and possibly blindside links. The parry prompt happens often when fighting them in melee distance, and so the player should stay vigilant. Wielding a weapon that is compatible with link-strikes is good for battles with a lot of parries. Alternatively, some royal arms have good parries that hit multiple opponents, like the Mace of the Fierce, and using the royal arms for parrying does not cost HP. The hunt area also has various rocks the player can point-warp to, and then unleash a warp-strike from there.
Albinogin is a portmanteau of “albino” and “sahagin”.
Albinism (from Latin albus, "white") is a congenital disorder characterized by the complete or partial absence of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes. Albinism results from inheritance of recessive gene alleles and is known to affect all vertebrates, including humans. An organism with complete absence of melanin is called an albino and an organism with only a diminished amount of melanin is described as albinoid.
