Monster Count: How Many Monsters

46 Large Monsters and 26 Small Monsters

Right now, there are currently 46 Large Monsters and 26 Small Monsters (as of Update 3.0) in the game for a total of 72 unique monsters!

It includes a lot of new entries including Aknosom, Bishaten, and many more. There are also a lot of returning monsters that's a staple to the Monster Hunter franchise including the Tigrex, Zinogre, and even the Sky monarchs, Rathalos and Rathian.

Elder Dragons like Teostra, Kushala Daora, and Chameleos also joins the fray! Apex versions for your favorite monsters also appears in-game.

There are also upcoming updates for the game which might introduce new monsters so don't hesitate to get the game - it's worth it!

Update Roadmap and Schedule: Free Title Updates

Estimated Total Monster Count + Expansion

Excluding the Small Monsters, there are over 70 Large Monsters from Monster Hunter World: Iceborne and more than 90 in GU - and with 46 Large Monsters confirmed we're already halfway there! Since this is a base game entry and CAPCOM is known to release a G-Rank Expansion to supplement their Monster Hunter base games, we expect the total number of monsters to approach that of GU (at 90) or more during the game's lifespan!

World's lack of monsters is due to several old entries not making it into the cut but since Rise is being open to all these old monsters, a huge monster count is definitely on our way.

Rumored Monsters


Monster Hunter Rise - Tetsucabra Rumors

The same way Master Utsushi was revealed, Hojo was shown riding a miniature version of a Tetsucabra. This could be very far-fetched but if you think about how Tetsucabra's samurai theme fits perfectly with MH Rise's, suddenly it could make sense!

Is Tetsucabra in Monster Hunter Rise?

Great Jagras

Monster Hunter Rise - Great Jagras Returning

Great Jagras appeared first in Monster Hunter World and we will not be surprised if it is announced in Monster Hunter Rise considering smaller Jagrases appeared in the Shrine Ruins!


Monster Hunter Rise - Bullfango

When you go to Shrine Ruins Area 9, you will see a couple of Bullfangos ready to ram you. Their presence made us think that their pack leader, the Bulldrome is set to return!


Monster Hunter Rise - Gobul Rumors

Gobul has not appeared since Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and has a similar skeletal model to Royal Ludroth so we expect it to be confirmed for Rise! Moreover, the Submarines that Buddies use to trade with faraway lands in the Argosy looks like a Gobul. We hope this is a sign that the angler fish will be back!
