Character Creation Guide

Character Customization is Possible

Like all other Monster Hunter games, it is possible to create your character in Rise.

Editable Parts

Style Character Facial Contour Skin
Hair Eyebrow Eye Nose
Mouth Beard Paint Innerwear

Compared to the previous releases, Character and Style is a new addition while the facial expression is removed. Not much yet is known about these two additions. But with the new voice acting added to hunters, perhaps they function as the hunter's personality? Stay tuned for more info!

For Those Who Wish to Play Quickly, Preset is Available!

Not wanting to customize your character and just head straight into the game? There are preset customizations available to the player! They are premade so you might encounter other players that will look exactly like you. But if such things aren't a big deal then the preset options are a great tool for you!

Voice Acting

The hunter speaks a lot in the game. Unlike in previous games where the hunter was a silent protagonist, in Rise, they talk a lot! For those who prefer the traditional hunter, it is possible to reduce the frequency of the hunter's talking in the settings.

Companion Creation Guide

The Palamute is a new companion in Rise. It's a Canine and is a larger companion than the Palico, while mounted, it is possible to perform various actions such as healing, sharpening your weapons, and even jumping! When editing the Palamute, preset settings are also available similar to the hunter edit menu.

Editable Parts

Pattern Pattern Color Fur Eye
Ear Tail Clothing Voice

A bunch of things can be edited for the Palico but the most important part to edit is the Palico's behavior. It directly affects gameplay and is what decides whether what kind of playstyle your Palico will have in the game.

Editable Parts

Pattern Eye Pattern color
Hair color Ears Tail
Innerwear Voice Behavior

Can I Edit My Character Later?

Some Parts Can Be Edited

It's not yet confirmed, but in the past games, you could alter a few features: hairstyle, eyebrows, and clothing. Everything else was off-limits, so expect the same in MHRise.

Character Edit Voucher

Back in Monster Hunter World, you could do a full character edit where you can everything about your appearance (even your sex!) by purchasing a Character Edit Voucher. It's still unknown whether the same will be true for Rise, but it's a likely possibility.

    • I saw that Magnamalo has two names: some shoos are selling Magnamalo Amiibo and some shops and selling Magbanaki Amiibo but they’re both the same monster. Why is that?

    • 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.?
