Top Ten Best Monster Hunter Flagship Monsters

A list on the best flagship monsters in all of the Monster Hunter games. A flagship monster is a monster that is the mascot of that game, main goal a Hunter works towards and an overall big part in the story and game objective. Which one is your favourite.
The Top Ten
1 Gore Magala/MH4U

gora magala everyones favorite frenzy virus guy I never understood why gra magala was so loved byt when I fought him for the first time it was a really well made fight I love the way that he looks like some sourt of villain.I also love the whole thing with the frenzy virus

Gore is easily the best representative of a monster hunter game. Being that the game he stared in was my first monster hunter game, he easily became my favorite due to his awesome fighting style, unique way to weaken you and looks. He is the main focus of 4U's story, so he has to be created for the challenge, and capcom succeeded. If you need to know why he's #1, look him up on images. There's your answer

Intimidating, powerful, an interesting fight with unique mechanics and very well done build-up and story integration, Gore Magala does everything right. Much better than any of the previous flagships, in my opinion.

One of the developers favourite monsters. Spread the mysterious frenzy virus, looks awesome and intimidating and a brutal fight (at least for newcomers).

2 Tigrex/MHF2/MHFU

No word can describe the feeling of landing the final blow on the Tigrex. It almost kills you in the intro to the game, threatens you in a few quests then when the time for the battle with your rival finally comes... you will probably be destroyed. Again and again. It feels impossible at first but you start to learn using the environment to your advantage, memorising it's attack patterns and finding a way to dodge it's merciless charging. This monster is merciless, he doesn't give you a second to rest and a built up rivalry all make you feel like a God when you finish it and make it into a helmet.

The king of the beasts. It is in so many games and it deserves them all. It is the king of the flagship monsters. ALL HAIL THE TIGREX!

You have to face it in Mhf2 to understand why he is the best flagship monster, simple words can't describe the thrill of that hunt.

This... Is a monster.

3 Zinogre/MH3U/MHP3

Zinogre and its subspecies are the only species of Fanged Wyvern, so they are very unique both in move sets and designs.

Electric doggo of sick flips is my main man. I would put gore magala as a close second because he is my spirit animal.

It's a luxray but stronger

Extremely fun fight.

4 Nargacuga/MHFU

Badass design, extremely difficult and a good expanse of what a monster with Tigrex's body shape could do.

Best monster in terms of fun, disign, dynamics and rewards. It sure ain't an elder dragon but it's the most fun foe to battle.

5 Brachydios/MH3U/MHP3

A monster that literally punches explosions using explosive goo. What's not to love. It's equipment is RIDICULOUSLY overpowered though.

6 Kushala Daora/MHFU/MHF2

Although barely known as a Flagship Monster it is a metallic dragon. Yes, A METALLIC DRAGON. So badass going near it makes you fall over from the strength of the wind produced by it's wings. This monster proved that size wasn't everything to some of the previous hulking Elder Dragons.

What's cooler than a Metal Plated Dragon that controls storms?

That's right, I didn't think so.

By far the best elder dragon, best flagship and my second favorite monster so yeah

7 Lagiacrus/MH3 Tri

I think that all the flagship monsters are amazing, they’re all very awesome and creative in their own right and all very formidable monsters. But I think that the Lagiacrus did the best job of representing its respective game, with Tri introducing underwater combat. Not only did it look cool and feel fun to fight, but it did a better job than any other of being intimidating and challenging. He truly felt like a Lord of the Seas when fighting him underwater, and his speed, grace and aggression let you know that you were playing by HIS rules. I don’t care what new moves they try to give him, he’lol never again reach his former glory without underwater combat.

What monster looks cool and introduces water combat? Lagiacrus and it is the best underwater monster. The buildup makes it even more of a relief and a huge happiness when you finally kill it for the first time

Introduced water combat and was pretty cool looking but I don't get the same special feeling like I do with other Flagship Monsters. It just felt like another monster to slay.

Favorite and bad@ss design and fighting skills in the water

8 Rathalos/Rathian/MHF

THE flagship monster for the Monster Hunter series. The Raths tie the games together in a way that no other monster can hope to do. But I will say that as a veteran monster hunter, I am biased in favor of the Fire Wyverns. I just wish Capcom would put more effort into integrating them a storyline for once. The wyvern is fantastic, but the producers are jerks.

Basically the one that ties all the games together. Monster Hunter just isn't Monster Hunter without the Rathalos.

Brilliant Monsters however although they laid the foundation they didn't expand upon it.

The first thing that comes to mind when u think about monster hunter!

9 Seregios/MH4U

I like the Seregios because it has an wild and cool look, fast, and somewhat hard to beat. it goes in the the top for me because it is one of the only invasion monsters in the flagships besides Rathalos.

Cool design but it has no build up and the first time you encounter it is stupid. OH NO A SEREGIOS! Force abandon quest. Well, that sucked but I guess he'll stalk me next few quests like Deviljho until the final battle with it. Oh hey, you know that Seregios I said was too badass to beat? Yeah could you go hunt it right now? Not only that but the fight is painfully easy (at least for me).

10 Nergigante/MHW

nergigante is got to be the best flagship monster of all time I am a gen 1 hunter and I have never seen a monster beter than nergigante.nergigante is literaly like the monster hunter grim reaper.not only that nergigante KILLED shara ishvalda

The build up for nerg and his fight is a long one to come in World's story, but it is a fun first time fight when you have to learn his fight pattern and his ability. Though before some updates, he was the second wall for people (first being the first anja for most) and gratefully so in my opinion. Though he changed with the updates and now is honestly easy if you know what you're doing. His concept being the eater of elder dragons is neat but what am I to fear when I could just bash his face in with a hammer. Cool battle theme though.

He is one of my favourite bosses in all of gaming

The Contenders
11 Valstrax

We're going on a trip, in a living rocket ship ZOOMING THROUGH THE SKY, Valstrax

12 Glavenus

glavenous where do I start with glavenous oh yea is start with his tail ok jokes aside glavenous is my second favorite fated four member because come on a jiant t rex with a sword tail it can put on fire

A dinosaur with a 15 foot ignitable tail. Tell me what is better besides the Tigrex.

Godzilla 1998 with a 1000 degree knife enough said

Grimlock in monster hunter but more badass

13 Azure Rathalos/MH3U

It's been here since the first game, it's a subspecies and there is pretty much NO build up. Japan got the MUCH cooler Brachydios.

14 Deviljho

I love Deviljho because of how it like it was made by a child (in a good way)
seriously, mix a T-rex w/ a pickle and give it laser breath and a serious underbite, BAM, Deviljho
It is also a reflection of our voracious appetite, it eats its own tail for crying out loud!
what's not to love?

I like this monster


15 Tamamitsune

This monster can move preety agile, and have a beautiful design

16 Gammoth

shes fiercely protective and caring twoards her herd

17 Rajang

"The ultimate monkey monster"

18 Raizex

Cool fight, but where do I get the feeling this monster ripped off seregios?

19 Great Jagras

Best monster of all time, Arch tempered fight very hard

20 Velkhana

One of the main antagonists of Monster Hunter: Iceborne.
From the beginning we know of its existence and show us with various cinematics and combats its power.
It is so powerful that we have two "practice" fights to train before the real challenge.
Dodge the ice laser, the stalactites, the ice floor and finally reach our rival.
And then it kills us with the tail.


21 Amatsu

amatsu is 1 of my personal favorite monsters the way that amatsu pretty much floats and the way he makes kushalas winds look like trash like I'm pretty sure amatsu can break rocks with his winds

22 Plesioth

He is the god of hip checks

the only good pisine wyvern

23 Gigginox

I enjoy the gigginox b/c it actually taught me to observe my surroundings and be very careful with my antidotes. Also, I actually like Gig's design, plus the bio-luminescent highlights on the head and tail are pretty cool. Also, his armor, in terms of design, reminds me a lot of Assassin's Creed. Anybody else get that vibe?

24 Dodogama
25 Astalos

in my opnion astalos is the best fated four member.I mostly yust love him cause of his theme but I also love his desing and he also has a pretty fun fight.also stop saying astalos is the weakest fated four member.but I do wish he had a fire sub species
