What are Side Quests?

Quests Not Contributing To The Main Story

Side Quests are quests in-game that are non-essential to the progression of the main story in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise). These are classified into two: Requests and Optional Subquests.


Requests are special type of side quests where villagers task you on completing certain tasks. These can range from slaying large and small monsters to delivering items. These usually reward you with important hunting benefits like new Dango Flavors, Buddy Equipment, and Sub-Camps.

Optional Subquests

Optional Subquests are special types of side quest with a set goal that randomly appears from a set pool of subquests in the Village Quest Counter (Hinoa) and Hub Quest Counter (Minoto). The subquests can range from tasking you to collect a certain number of hunting helpers to slaying large monsters.

These are usually passive and completes as you go on quests normally. Also, Optional Subquests in the Village and the Hub are the same so you can choose to complete them from either.

These Optional Subquests are more of a miscellaneous type that can range from using Wyvern Riding or capturing a monster instead of slaying it.


These are completed just by finishing other quests in a specific area and tend to have better rewards. As you'll be completing quests naturally while you go through the game, these should be prioritized.

If you accidentally join an Optional Subquest which you don't plan on completing, you can cancel it at any time by pressing the Y button from Hinoa's or Minoto's Quest Counter.

Keep in mind that canceling the Optional Subquests will remove all progress on the quest, so only do this when you're sure you want to cancel or if you have not made any progress yet.
