  • Everything wrong with this vid (still like it tho) Rathian is not the mascot, rathalos is Cutting the tail off of rathian (or rathalos) does not eliminate the poison No sever changes or break ever changes there attack because if you break the tail only the tip is cut off and horns are only made smaller because nargacuga still shoots bleed inducing spikes even after a sever, the o ly one's who bend thus rule is tzitzi yaku and gypceros since you can cancel their flash

  • Monster hunter game's monsters has one of the best creature design out there. I've never seen monsters that strike the balance of fantasy, realism, and distinct "iconic" look as well as MH. I'm sure there are others out there, but I would say it's very few. The creatures that I've seen are always lacking in one those variables that I talked about.

  • I... I mean you’re technically right when you say Rathian is the mascot but also wrong, I wasn’t expecting to hear something like that, so Rathalos is the mascot, Rathian is the female equivalent and was going to be the mascot until they decided poison wouldn’t be good for the mascot

  • Monster hunter also has certain design conventions, like the Wyverns and how these Wyverns have loose themes Flying Wyvern: somewhat bird/bat like Pseudo Wyvern: feline with avian features Brute Wyvern: ancient animals, typically dinosaurs but sometimes megafauna mammals Piscine Wyvern: F I S H Bird Wyvern: B I R B/theropods from raptors to birds Fanged Wyvern: Mammalian Reptiles Snake Wyvern: s n e k Leviathan: aquatic creatures? Amphibian: (so far) frogs with usual heads Carapaceon: crab, mostly based on ancient class systems Neopteran: bug (maybe more?) Temnoceran: Spiders that typically have stingers and a bad back (all spiders are veiled too) Elder Dragon: dragons with predatory mammalian body and wings and horns that are typically aligned with their element Fanged Beast: mammals based on myths/folklore/characters/stories with the monkeys being based partially primate and partially ungulate

  • To be honest,if we look at the fated four you can realise how each has not only got a unique design but also a strong personality you can realise throughout the hunt. Gammoth is a threatening,huge monster that puts up a strong fight against others, mizutsune is a calm,serene monster,with a new exclusive soap status and is frequent in movement, Astalos is the crazy,chaotic monster of the bunch,being absolutely fatal with his attacks while not backing down in force,and finally glavenus is the strong,challenging monster,sometimes seen as the leader while having the great sword as you could call it as it’s tail. Each one is very different to each other,and that’s why I love them

  • I made my own fanmade Monster Hunter creature for my ARK creature collection called Agnindirath. I do love their biology. Their anatomy is largely inspired by existing modded creatures including Dynamoterror from Primal Creations and Smok saurovindigo from Wild ARK. Their armor resembles that of Deviljho and Glavenus and they have metallic armor and axe like blades at the end of their tail as well as a Wyvern like head. They're also pyro and electrokinetic and are said to be magically powered.

  • I've always had this weird pseudo wyvern paralytic green owl that looks fancy and when enrages some of it's plumage gains a yellow coloration due to it's paralytic spines finally popping up and uncontrolably expulsing paralitic acid that drips off with most attacks or movements the creature performs. Breaking certain body parts nullifies the spines of the body part that it's broken. To compensate breaking the body parts of this monster would require more damage so to not make the fight trivial. Also I chose paralytic acid and not fluid so that you could atleast still take damage from the puddles left behind in case you bring full paralysis negation.

  • When she said Spinosaurus was semi aquatic, I just shook my head now that they think it was actually like a herring and would waide in the shallows and didn't actually swim. But just watch in like a month even that turns out to be incorrect as they find another skeleton and find some more wacky features. 5:53

    • @JollyFigNut Rathian is included in the original roster of the first monster hunter game, regardless of what it's called. And it's the first monster to ever be designed, and slapped on the original cover, therefore it is the official mascot. Also, even if you want to say Rathalos is the mascot, Rathian is the same species, so they're both the mascot one way or the other.

    • @Aysar Aburrub That is for MH1G/freedom not MH1. Rathalos is on the cover of MH1, rathian is only available in multiplayer if I'm not mistaken edit: thinking of fatalis with online, not rathian. rathian is available offline.
