Can I Change My Name

This is an article about how to change your hunter's name in Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise). If you want to know if a name change is possible as well as how to do it, read on!

Can I Change My Name?

It Can Be Changed in the Trial Version

Profile Name Change

Since the hunter name in the demo follows the name of the Switch profile you are using, it is possible to change your in-game name by changing your Switch profile name.

It can be done by going to System Settings → Users → Choose Profile → Nickname. Take note however that you can only use a maximum of 10 characters so keep it short and sweet!

May Not Be Possible in the Full Game

Though possible in the demo, it is highly unlikely that the hunter's name can be changed in the full game. In past Monster Hunter games, the hunter's name is tied to the saved file so if you want to change your name, you have to restart on a new save.

Cannot Change the Name of Buddies

In the past games, your Palico's name can't be changed. When the game prompts you to name your buddies during character creation, make sure it is close to your heart!

How to Hide Your Name

Can Be Hidden Using HUD Settings

HUD Hide NameEnlarge

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.

Hunter Name Colors

Depends on Hunter Rank (HR)

In the past games, the color of the name changes depending on the Hunter Rank (HR). It is a way of denoting the experience level of a certain hunter!

There is no information yet if this will be implemented in Rise but we do not see it getting scrapped because it is an easy system to understand.
