Small Monsters List

Expected Future Announcements


MH Rise - Lagiacrus Expected

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.


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!

Great Jagras

MH Rise - Great Jagras Expected

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!


MH Rise - Bullfango Expected

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!

Monsters Desired by the Walkthrough Team


MH Rise - Nergigante Desired by Walkthrough Team

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!


MH Rise - Amatsumagatsuchi Desired by Walkthrough Team

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.

Gore Magala / Shagaru Magala

MH Rise - Gore Magala Shagaru Magala Desired by Walkthrough Team

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!
