About Endemic Life

Creatures That Inhabit the Area

Endemic Life are wildlife that you can interact with during missions to gain certain benefits and/or effects.

In Monster Hunter World (MHW), they are collectibles that can be added to your room as decorations. Aside from providing research points and fulfilling quests, they offer no other benefits. In MHRise, they offer certain effects that can be used in your hunts.

No Tools Needed to Catch Them

In MHW where they were first introduced, Endemic Life needed to be caught using the Capture Net. In MHRise however, there seems to be no need to use specialized tools to catch these creatures.

Endemic Life Are Classified Into Six Categories

Type Effects
Permabuffer Buffs the hunter for the entire duration of the hunt.
Temp Buffer Buffs the hunter for a limited amount of time.
Hunting Helper Can be deployed in the field for assorted effects depending on the Hunting Helper, like luring monsters or healing the party. Can be collected and stored in the Helper Cage, for a maximum of five.
Ensnaring Life When triggered, damages, stuns, and/or traps the monster.
Crafty Creatures Gives you valuable items that you can craft with or sell.

    • 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.?
