This is an article about how to change your hunter's name in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise). In addition to changing your Character, Palico, and Palamute names, this guide will also explain the rules of character names, as well as what the colors of the icons next to the character names during the hunt mean.
List of Contents
Your character/hunter's name cannot be changed after the initial character creation page. Not even the Update 2.0 DLC Character Edit Voucher will let you change your name. You must select a name after customizing your character, so be sure to give them a name that you like!
The name you give to your hunter will be seen by many other players online. Therefore, certain rules and restrictions are placed on the names you can select. Go with a name that you like and that you don't mind other people seeing as well.
You can change the name of your Palicoes and Palamutes by speaking with Iori, the Buddy Scout, who is located in the Buddy Plaza.
Maximum of 16 characters
Numbers, special characters, and other alphabets are supported
No words that are illegal, offensive, personal, or that could infringe upon others' rights
The name of your Character / Hunter, Palico, and Palamute can be a maximum of 16 characters.
In addition to the regular English alphabet letters, numbers, special characters, as well as letters from other alphabets can be used in your name, allowing you to combine the characters as you see fit.
Since your name may be seen by many others when playing online, any words that are illegal, offensive, personal, or could infringe upon others' rights are not allowed.
You can choose to not show your hunter name while in-game by going to the Start Menu and selecting System → Options → Game Settings → HUD Settings → Uncheck Player Info.
When in multiplayer, the host will always have the red color. When out on hunts, the weapon icon and the buddy icon will follow that color!
The other colors namely: blue, yellow, and green are assigned to the other hunters!
Since everyone can bring one (1) Buddy out on multiplayer hunts, the icon next to the weapon icon also shows which type of Buddy your hunting mates are bringing!
