Hello and welcome to the Discussion of the Week!

This week we look at some of the Hidden Monsters in the series!

1st Generation

  • Make a piece of the Monoblos Armor
  • Make a piece of Vespoid Armor
  • Make a piece of Cephadrome Armor
  • Event Quest only
  • Defeat Monoblos
  • Event Quest only (G-rank version)
  • Event Quest only
  • USB connectivity with Monster Hunter 2 to unlock/Event Quest

Let's start with the first generation! In MH1, hunters needed to make a piece of a certain armor set in order to unlock a monsters and, much like today, certain monsters were limited as Event Quest but, Yian Garuga takes the cake in Japan! Though it is in MHF1, Japan needed USB connectivity with Monster Hunter 2 to unlock it in MH2. To be fair, it was at least Yian Garuga was also an Event Quest!

2nd Generation

  • MH2: After Lunastra
  • MH2: After Lunastra
  • MH2: After Lunastra
  • MH2: After Lunastra
  • MH2: After Lunastra
  • MH2: Hidden and wasn't mentioned anywhere until MH2's release
  • MH2: Unlocked at HR50, though special items are needed; MHF2: Killing 100 Wyverns
  • MH2: Unlocked at HR50, though special items are needed; MHF2: Killing 100 Wyverns
  • MH2: Unlocked at HR50, though certain quest conditions are needed; MHF2: Event Quest only

This was an interesting generation to say the least! It had some ways to unlock monsters that was either ridiculous or just plain evil, especially the way White Fatalis was unlocked back in Dos! Dear god, who would even consider doing all that?!

3rd Generation

  • Junior's delivery request, One Chance, and slay Uragaan.
  • Randomly throughout High Rank and G-rank, along with Deviljho Quest
  • MHP3: Killing 100 Wyverns
  • MHP3: Killing 100 Wyverns
  • MHP3: Clearing all single monster quest
  • MHP3: Clearing all single monster quest
  • MHP3: Clearing all double monster quest; MH3U: Clear all village quest. Event Quest only (High Rank and G-rank)
  • Randomly in G-rank quest
  • Unlocked at HR40
  • Kill or Capture all monsters, except for Lucent Nargacuga, Savage Deviljho and Abyssal Lagiacrus to unlock. This includes Alatreon.
  • Event Quest (G-rank only)
  • Unlocked at HR70

So many! The 3rd Generation started with very few but, than suddenly had a large number in a short period of time. Some of which had a specific way they needed to be unlocked.

4th Generation

  • Unlocked at HR30
  • Unlocked at HR50
  • Unlocked at HR70; Event Quest (G-rank only)
  • Event Quest (High Rank)
  • Must obtain the Award "Deciphering Medal (Aged Crimson)" to unlock.
  • Guild Quest and Event Quest only
  • Event Quest (G-rank only)
  • Must obtain the Award "Deciphering Medal (Aged Sword)" to unlock.
  • Must obtain the Award "Deciphering Medal (Aged Crusher)" to unlock.
  • Event Quest (Episodic Quest only)
  • Must obtain the Award "Deciphering Medal (Aged Power)" to unlock G-rank version.

Well, dang! This is a lot of info! The 4th Generation had some ways of making you work for those quest and particular monsters, though Event Quest were still an option.

  • Phantom Doragyurosu has a 1% chance of appearing
  • Occasional appearance
  • Look in the clouds and you'll see the face of strength
  • Randomly
  • Randomly

Questions

  • Did any of them catch you off guard?
  • Do some of the ways to unlock them seem a bit challenging?
  • Do you prefer the monster to be in the game without having to wait long for an Event Quest?
  • Do you like hidden secrets like this?
  • Which of these monsters make the most sense to keep hidden?
  • Do you think making certain pieces of armor could encourage players to search for more hidden bosses in future games?
