Teostra is confirmed to be returning in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise)! Be careful of its Supernova attack or you will have an unplanned trip back to camp!
The metallic Elder Dragon Kushala Daora is making a comeback in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise)! Brave the cold winds of this dragon and stand your ground!
Due to its sheer popularity, the announcement of Chameleos came hardly as a surprise! This slimy dragon turns invisible while simultaneously poisoning you in the process. You can't fight back if you can't see it!
Nargacuga is finally announced in the March 8th Monster Hunter Rise Digital Event along with Zinogre! Be careful for its swift attacks especially when enraged!
The electric doggo is back! We finally got a glimpse of Zinogre during the March 8th Monster Hunter Rise Digital Event where we see him fighting a Mizutsune!
Barroth is silently confirmed during the Light Bowgun showcase of Switch Skills. Be careful of its annoying mud attacks that can slow you down!
Arzuros appeared in the first official Monster Hunter Rise PV in a turf war with Tetranadon, a new confirmed monster.
The return of Royal Ludroth was confirmed in the second official Monster Hunter Rise PV. It is known for its body roll attack and its water breath attack. Hunters usually farm Dash Juices from it.
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.
Great Wroggi - Basic Information and Armor Sets
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.
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!
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!
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.
Basarios equipment can be seen during the Hunting Horn weapon introduction video and finally was announced in the February 17th Nintendo Direct!
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 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!
Volvidon is a staple of the volcanic regions in the old games and was announced along with the new Lava Caverns map in the February 17th Nintendo Direct!
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!
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!
Diablos was announced in the February 17th Nintendo Direct as a returning monster joining The Rampage!
Along with Diablos, Rajang was also announced! This ferocious beast is back to haunt all us once again!
Bazelgeuse is returning in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise)! This flying bomber wyvern invades your hunts so bring some Dung Bombs if you can!
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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 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!
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!
Recognize any of these little guys? Here's a list of all the small monsters confirmed to be returning in Monster Hunter Rise!
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 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.
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!
