Type: Lynian / 獣人種

Felyne26
MH3-ChaCha


Cat-Like Lynians: Melynx, Felyne
Humanoid Lynians: Shakalaka, King Shakalaka, Cha-Cha, Kayamba, Uruki

Lynians (Japanese 獣人種) are a race of sapient creatures who are native to the land. There are currently only three known Lynian species: the cat-like species which harbor the Melynx and Felyne, the humanoid Shakalaka and the Uruki. They are intelligent, have complex societies, and use a language, although the Shakalaka are more primitive and barbaric, while the felid species tend to live peacefully in democratic societies. Before building more intensive relations with humans, they seem to already have their own civilizations. They can help human hunters during combat.


Type: Herbivore / 草食種

MH4-Aptonoth Render 001


Herbivores: Aptonoth, Apceros, Popo, Kelbi, Anteka, Mosswine, Epioth, Rhenoplos, Erupe, Burukku, Slagtoth

Herbivores (Japanese 草食種) are weak monsters that eat vegetation from grass or trees instead of hunting for meat. They are usually docile monsters which may attack or run away if threatened. They range in many different sizes and species. Although they are all in the same group, many of the species are not closely related to each other. While other monsters in the series are known to have a strictly herbivorous diet, such as Diablos and Duramboros, this list refers only to those that belong to the in-game classification of Herbivores.

MH4-Seltas Render 001
Neopterons: Vespoid, Queen Vespoid, Hornetaur, Great Thunderbug, Bnahabra, Altaroth, Konchu, Seltas, Seltas Subspecies, Seltas Queen, Seltas Queen Subspecies

Neopterons (Japanese 甲虫種) are insect-like monsters known for their rigid carapaces. These monsters can range in size from tiny to enormous, and some species can fly, while others cannot. Neopterons are very susceptible to poison and fire, yet hold quite a resistance to the Dragon Element. Their materials are often used to make very sharp weapons.


Type: Chelicerata / 鋏角種

MH4-Nerscylla Render 001


Chelicerata: Nerscylla, Nerscylla Subspecies

Cheliceratas (Japanese 鋏角種) are a class of monster first introduced in Monster Hunter 4. This class is characterized by its spider-like characteristics, which include eight limbs and the ability to produce silk. This class includes only one type of monster, the Nerscylla and its subspecies.

Bird Wyverns (Japanese 鳥竜種) are a class of monsters introduced in the first generation. They are, as their name implies, bird-like in nature, with slender, delicate bodies. Despite their comparatively small stature, Bird Wyverns often use their agility to their advantage to neutralize attackers and prey alike.

There are two distinct types of Bird Wyverns: Flying Bird Wyverns and Raptorial Bird Wyverns. Flying Bird Wyverns exhibit similar characteristics to True Wyverns, with a bipedal stance along with developed and functional wings. Many of these possess a hard, sharp beak which can be used to peck at attackers, and generally behave in a bird-like manner. Raptorial Bird Wyverns are reminiscent of Brute Wyverns; flightless, bipedal creatures with long tails and powerful legs. Unlike Brute Wyverns however, these monsters are generally quite small. Furthermore, Raptorial Bird Wyverns almost always live under a social hierarchy, with young individuals, females and beta males led by a strong, dominant alpha male, which can command and control his subjects during combat.


Type: Flying Wyvern / 飛竜種

MH4-Rathalos Render 001

Flying Wyverns (Japanese 飛竜種) are large, bipedal monsters that have two wings. These Wyverns are known as "True Wyverns". However, there are some Wyverns that are quadrupedal, operating their wingarms as forearms instead like Tigrex and Nargacuga. These monsters have been dubbed by fans as "Pseudo Wyverns" (Pseudo meaning "False" or "Mimic"), due to these species only displaying partial Wyvern traits. Some are flightless despite their classification as Flying Wyverns, like the Akantor and Ukanlos. These wyverns show their Wyvern ancestry by the small forewings on their two front limbs. Flying Wyverns make up a large majority of the monsters in the Monster Hunter franchise.

Piscine Wyverns: Cephalos, Cephadrome, Plesioth, Green Plesioth, Lavasioth, Lavasioth Subspecies, Delex, Goruganosu, Aruganosu

Piscine Wyverns (Japanese 魚竜種) are a class of monsters introduced in the first generation. Superficially similar to Flying Wyverns, these monsters typically possess fish-like bodies, and are generally known to inhabit viscous environments. Common characteristics possessed by all Piscine Wyverns include highly developed fins, thick, paddle-like tails, pupil-less eyes, and other fish-like facial features. Despite their aquatic appearance, Piscine Wyverns are often highly capable of terrestrial life, and are even known to inhabit desert dunes and volcanic magma pools.

When they're weakened by physical damage, they show internal bleeding by the frothing of the purple bubbles from their mouths. Most of these crustaceans resemble crabs, lobsters or scorpions.

They are often much faster than other larger threats. The first Primatius monsters appeared in Monster Hunter 2. They were referred to as Primatius in earlier translations, but as of Unite are known as Pelagus. More of the Pelagus were added in MHP3, they are known as Fanged Beasts in the Japanese version, and in the English version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.

Leviathans (Japanese 海竜種) are a class of monsters first appearing in the third generation. This class is mainly comprised of serpentine or fish-like creatures with long, slender bodies and paddle-like tails. Unlike most other monsters, many Leviathans are accustomed to aquatic life, and in fact are often apex predators in their underwater habitats. Those that are aquatic can be found on land as well, but are much better suited to life under the sea. However, some Leviathans are uniquely adapted for terrestrial life, many capable of digging and burrowing to surprise prey from below. Leviathans can be found in a wide variety of habitats, ranging from oceans and deserts to volcanoes and frozen tundras.


Type: Snake Wyvern / 蛇竜種

These monsters are typically large, bipedal theropod-like creatures, that are prone to living in areas abundant in food sources. Brute Wyverns exhibit a wide variety of dietary habits; some are strictly herbivorous or carnivorous, while others subsist on insects or even minerals. These monsters often use their heavy, muscular bodies to charge blindly through an environment to damage attackers or prey, and include many defensive adaptations, including tail clubs, horns, and even hammer-like chins and fists. Like most classes, Brute Wyverns can be found in almost any type of environment.


Type: Fanged Wyvern / 牙竜種

These monsters are rare, powerful, and are sometimes even treated as deities by hunters within the Monster Hunter universe. Elder Dragons exhibit a wide variety of body types, the most common being a quadrupedal entity with a long tail and two wings. However, some Elder Dragons can possess Equine or even Cephalopodic features. This class includes monsters that are suited to any realm, be it land, sea or air. In addition, Elder Dragons can be found in almost any environment in the Monster Hunter world, and are generally the most powerful monsters one can encounter in any given zone.
