Great Wroggi Confirmed

Like Royal Ludroth, the Great Wroggi was confirmed in the second official Monster Hunter Rise PV. It is known to spit poison in unison together with smaller Wroggies around it.

Rathalos

Rathalos.jpg

Rathalos was confirmed in the second official Monster Hunter Rise PV. This confirmation is not surprising considering Rathalos has appeared in all Monster Hunter games by far.

Rathalos - Basic Information and Armor Sets

Khezu

Khezu.jpg

During the second official PV, Khezu's characteristic cry and lightning balls were observed until finally it was confirmed in the Monster Hunter Rise TV commercial.

It is now officially announced as a returning monster during the January 7th, Monster Hunter Rise Digital Event! Be ready for its creepy shrieks and dangerous lightning attacks in Monster Hunter Rise!

Khezu - Basic Information and Armor Sets

Great Baggi

Great Baggi.jpg

Yes, Great Baggi is finally confirmed! It was announced during the January 7th, Monster Hunter Rise Digital Event along with other returning monsters. Be wary of this beast because it induces sleep which is a nightmare when in a turf war!

Great Baggi - Basic Information

Rathian

Rathian Confirmed

Rathian appeared as the enemy in the Great Sword weapon introduction video. Like Rathalos, Rathian appeared in all Monster Hunter games so its confirmation is hardly a surprise.

Rathian - Basic Information and Armor Sets

Basarios

Basarios Confirmed

Basarios equipment can be seen during the Hunting Horn weapon introduction video. This could be a confirmation but there is a possibility that the equipment can be created by exchanging materials like in MH4U.

Mizutsune

Miztusune Digital Event.jpg

Mizutsune was confirmed at the January 7th, Monster Hunter Rise Digital Event! This monster is last seen in Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate and was well-loved because of its graceful moves and attacks.

Mizutsune can be hunted in the recently released demo so try it out!

Lagombi

Lagombi.jpg

Lagombi was announced during the January 7th, Monster Hunter Rise Digital Event! Be careful of its snowball attacks and swift slide movements that will challenge your abilities!

Lagombi - Basic Information

Returning Monsters from Monster Hunter World

Tobi Kadachi

Tobi Kadachi Confirmed

Tobi Kadachi was first shown during the first PV, and finally in the Light Bowgun weapon introduction video. Take note of its characteristic lightning and claw attacks!
Tobi-Kadachi - Basic Information and Armor Sets

Pukei-Pukei

Pukei-Pukei Confirmed

The Pukei-Pukei was confirmed in the Lance weapon introduction video. It is a poison monster that first appeared in Monster Hunter World, but fans love it because of its cute appearance.
Pukei-Pukei - Basic Information

Anjanath

Anjanath Confirmed

In the Hammer weapon introduction video, Anjanath was confirmed to be included in the Monster Hunter Rise monster roster. It was first introduced in Monster Hunter World and is considered the first difficult monster to fight during the campaign.

Anjanath - Basic Information

Kulu-Ya-Ku

Kulu-Ya-Ku Confirmed

Kulu-Ya-Ku was introduced in the Sword & Shield weapon introduction video. Though not a very strong monster, fans loved making layered armor from its parts in Monster Hunter World so expect the same in Monster Hunter Rise.

Kulu-Ya-Ku - Basic Information

Jyuratodus

Jyuratodus Confirmed

Jyuratodus was first confirmed in the Insect Glaive weapon introduction video. It did not have a strong presence in Monster Hunter World so we are excited for what is to come for Jyuratodus in Rise.

Jyuratodus - Basic Information and Armor Sets

Barioth

Barioth.jpg

We last saw Barioth with his subspecies in Monster Hunter World and now he is back for more! Avoid his ice attacks especially the mini tornado that it creates with its wings!

Barioth - Basic Information

Tigrex

Tigrex.jpg

Tigrex is back! It was announced in the recently concluded January 7th, Monster Hunter Rise Digital Event as a returning monster. Be very wary, this monster is so powerful even its roars can hurt you!

Tigrex - Basic Information and Armor Sets

Expected Future Announcements

Lagiacrus

Lagiacrus

Laguacrus is a popular monster that first appeared in Monster Hunter 3. It was expected to be announced in Monster Hunter World, only to be forgotten.

However, with the confirmation of Royal Ludroth and Mizutsune, we can expect Lagiacrus to appear in Rise because of the similarity in the skeletal model.

Nargacuga

Nargacuga

With the recent announcement of both Barioth and Tigrex, we could speculate that our favorite feline monster will be back in Monster Hunter Rise. Just imagine a map with these three - it is going to be amazing!

Chameleos

Chameleos

Chameleos is known for making its body completely transparent like a chameleon. It did not appear in Monster Hunter World and was memed that 'it appeared but is only invisible'. We think Capcom will add Chameleos to the roster due to its popularity.

Zinogre

Zinogre

Zinogre is one of the most popular monster that first appeared as a MHP3 monster. Since it has the same skeletal model as Magnamalo, Rise's flagship monster, we think Zinogre is an obvious choice to be added to the roster.

Moreover, Master Utsushi is wearing part of its armor so this strengthens the argument that Zinogre is back!

Najarala

Najarala was first introduced in Monster Hunter 4 and fit the newly introduced verticality feature very well. With Monster Hunter Rise boasting a new verticality feature again, we think Najarala will be confirmed for Rise!

Monsters Desired by the Walkthrough Team

Nergigante

Nergigante

Nergigante first appeared in Monster Hunter World and became an instant classic. It is one of those monsters with a mechanic that keeps Hunters on their toes!

Amatsumagatsuchi

Amatsu

Amatsumagatsuchi first appeared in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. It is a powerful Elder Dragon with the ability to manipulate storms during its fight. We honestly want Amatsu because of the sheer beauty of the whole fight as well as the BGM.

Gobul

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!

Gore Magala / Shagaru Magala

Gore Magala

Like Nergigante, Gore Magala and its Elder Dragon 'evolution' Shagaru Magala is one of those monsters that keep Hunters on their toes because of the Frenzy mechanic. Though a long shot, we want the Magalas to return in Rise!

    • Is it possible to view the armor and weapons we have equipped in the demo???

    • I hope they have different accessories for the Palamute like how the Palico can use Palico Gadgets! Maybe fang accessories which could inflict Poison, etc.?
