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

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). - Erikelelf

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. - Erikelelf

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!

Is this really a question it's the hardest And as a dark souls fan it's hard to get fair challenge fights

This... Is a monster.

3 Nargacuga/MHFU

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

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.

4 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.

Super. Saiyan. Electric. Wolf. That is all. - Erikelelf

It's a luxray but stronger

Extremely fun fight.

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. - Erikelelf

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. - Erikelelf

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

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

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

7 Lagiacrus/MH3 Tri

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. - Erikelelf

8 Seregios/MH4U
9 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. - Erikelelf

10 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. - Erikelelf

The Contenders

11 Glavenus

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

12 Gammoth
13 Raizex

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

14 Tamamitsune

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