  • ...that crouching will make you immune to High WindPress? However, this does not work against Dragon WindPress.
  • ..that Yama Tsukami can be knocked down by throwing Tranq Bombs at it while sucking in air? This may also make it flinch.
  • ...that if you throw a Sonic Bomb at Plesioth just before it jumps into the water it won't go in, but continue battling?
  • ...that if you crouch down before gathering for items you gather much faster compared to standing up? This is also the case with carving.
  • ...that from all melee weapon types, there is a specific attack(s) that gives you Anti WindPress Large and Anti Stagger? So next time you go on a hunt, remember to find this attack(s) and practice the timing!
  • ...that the name "Shogun" was taken from a Japanese military rank and "Daimyo" means 'Lord of the Territory'? A Shogun is a higher rank than a Daimyo. This is possibly why the Shogun Ceanataur is stronger than the Daimyo Hermitaur.
  • ..that many female monsters in MHFU are associated with the Moon [e.g. Gold Rathian (The Golden Moon), Lunastra ] and male monsters with the Sun [e.g.: Teostra (A Sun With Fangs), Silver Rathalos (The Silver Sun)]?


  • ...that if you throw a Smoke Bomb at Chameleos, it will temporarily become visible? So it is always good idea to bring some when fighting it.
  • ...that if you wave to a Hot-air Balloon it will give you a Psychoserum effect? This only works once per quest, however.
  • ...that some monsters require damage from a specific element in order to break a part? A famous example of this is Teostra and Lunastra, which require the Dragon element to break their horns. Blangonga also requires the Fire element to break its fangs.

  • ...that you can move immediately after consuming a Power Pill?


  • ...that Dual Swords may give you an instant WindPress skill while in Demonization mode?
  • ...that the 'Preys may split in half when attacked in mid-air with a slashing weapon? This prevents their corpses from being carved.

  • ...that pressing Circle after backhopping with your Gunlance will reload it?
  • ...that you can skip the animations and videos, such as the Felynes cooking or Trenya leaving on his boat, by pressing Select? This is also the case with monster intros.

  • ...that you can "lock" a Lao-Shan Lung by attacking its feet with a high raw power weapon?
  • ...that once you have done enough damage to Shen Gaoren's legs, it will fall down? This stagger time is much longer than normal.
  • ...that when a Leviathan's tail is cut it cannot create a current with its tail whip?
  • ...that the Land Arena of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd and Monster Hunter 3 is different? The arena in MHP3rd does not have a Dragonator and it does not have a gathering spot in the very center of the arena unlike in MH3.
  • ...that in Monster Hunter 3 and Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, monsters caught in a trap will fall asleep if sufficiently damaged even after administering Tranquilizer knives/bombs/shells? This works as long as the trap is still in effect.
  • ...that in Monster Hunter 3 and Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, you can carve a Kelbi or Anteka alive after it has been knocked out by impact damage?
  • ...that using bugnets on Zinogre after he falls while enraged will yield Thunderbugs and Mega Thunderbugs? This can also yield a Zinogre Pelt.

  • ...that you can drop Yian Kut-Ku out of the air by using a Sonic Bomb? This can be done regardless of whether its ears are broken or it is enraged.
