Type: Brute Wyvern
Know them. Respect them. Hunt them.
The world of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is teeming with monsters that inhabit land, sea and air, including
30 new species and subspecies sure to test your might.
Monsters range from small and relatively harmless to awe-inspiring and lethal.
Discover more about the kinds of creatures you can expect to encounter as you explore the vast and varied
terrains that await each and every hunter who heeds the call of the wild. But beware – with every mountain
path you tread or lake you plunge into, you could find yourself face-to-face with a savage beast that is more
than a match for any unprepared hunter. These pages hold details on just a few of the vicious creatures that
roam these wild lands; study your enemy carefully and victory can be yours.
These powerful monsters are fast on their feet and
capable of smashing anything in their way, but they
present an even bigger danger: slime that sticks to
hunters and then explodes.
Type: Flying Wyvern
Type: Flying Wyvern
Type: Fanged Beast
Capable of spitting balls of paralysing fluid or
curling into tight balls and rolling over unwary
hunters, Volvidons are definitely threats to be
reckoned with.

“Queens of the Land”. With powerful legs and
poison-secreting tail spikes, they hunt mainly on
the ground. Sometimes seen preying as a pair,
Rathian co-operate well with Rathalos.

use their tusks and spiked scales to move freely atop
the slippery ice: this ability makes them very difficult to
keep up with.
Type: Bird Wyvern
Type: Brute Wyvern
Brute wyverns that feed on ore,
using their mighty jaws to crush
bedrock to powder. They
cleverly affix rocks and
ore to their hides with
lava, then cast them about,
using vibrations to make
them explode. Will sometimes drop ore.

conceal themselves by imitating plants,
attracting prey with their luminescent lures.
They love frogs.

known for using their thoracic vocal organs to
imitate other monsters’ calls, first
summoning them, then using
the distraction to flee. Spits a
dangerous combustible
body fluid.

manes to absorb water and prevent

the water. They also spew mucus to trip
up their prey.

Use a range of arrow coatings and attack from a
distance with unparalleled accuracy.

resources that can be used to create great and wondrous weapons, armour and items – all of which you

a huge number of weapons with the spoils of victory. Choose and master your favourite weapon type to

on offence. Charge up its power to unleash a variety of
techniques that will leave monsters reeling.
Light Bowgun

while the Light Bowgun allows rapid-fire shots.

longest reach out of all weapons, and can be used to
block in place of a shield.
The Block-Advance can come in handy in a wide
variety of situations. You can even combat monster
breath with a Block-Advance Approach: Shield Attack mid-thrust!

this long sword slices through steel
like paper.

the long sword

spirit gauge.
the Charged
The Charged Slash, which builds up power before unleashing it all at once, is a
powerful technique only available to Great Sword wielders. However, be aware
that while it deals incredible damage, it leaves you defenceless while charging.

your might.

equipment pieces to create. Each blade

to becoming a hunter whose exploits
will pass on into legend.
Many monsters are weak to certain elemental attacks, but the damage you deal
depends on the body part you’re targeting.
Watch the monster’s reaction carefully to
judge the best part to attack.
It’s possible to purchase certain items, but a true hunter knows the value of a created item or finely-crafted

traits such as attack increases, enhanced
health and stamina, or the ability to detect
your enemies from afar.

tails and crests and you may be able to
break them off; a vital skill to master if you
wish to get the most out of each battle.
