The Top Ten


The Alatreon is the most powerful monster of any monster hunter game and is the most powerful of all elder dragons, in other words, since the elder dragons are the big bosses of the monster hunter series, and there to test your limits, and since he's the final boss of monster hunter tri and him being the most powerful of every single monster in the monster hunter universe, that makes him, quite literally, the final boss of of the final bosses and final boss of his own species(being elder dragon)... think about it... that's pretty damn dope

Blazing black dragons, so named for resembling both lightning and darkness. They mercilessly tear apart whoever touches their sharp scales. Elementally unstable, their actions can affect the very weather. Living natural disasters.

Incredibly powerful, looks like a true elder dragon, and has the ability to use multiple elements. Truly an epic creature.

Its awesome My 2nd Best Monster I've ever faced


One of the most unique (yet cool-looking) designs in mh compared to the usual wings and tail (dragon/wyvern) template used in a lot of monsters in the franchise.

A fun a hell fight that really keeps you on your toes and on top of that and amazing theme

He is one of the easier monsters in the games compared to say elder dragons, but he still can give a good fight even if you have great gear. I personally feel that the fight is just the most fun out of all the monster. It also is always on the ground giving you a good chance to attack it. This is one of the few problems I have with rathalos and rathian.

The zinogre is the bad@$$ of all @$$es he is the thunder wolf for gods sake


It's truly a beast and looks amazing in every way and the perk given from its armor allows you to become stronger, as the beast you fight become stronger, all in all its beauty, explosive, and high-damage attacks, and coloration design make for what I think, is the best of all "normal" monsters.

Brute wyverns coated with an explosive green substance. The material is thought to be a unique myxomycete--or slime mold--that is primed to explode by the Brachydios's own saliva. Note that these crafty creatures can also deliver powerful foreleg strikes.

Boxing. Slime. Dinosaur.

Best monster 10/10

Shagaru Magala

Being the final boss of the main story of 4U, and being the final boss of the first legit story in MH, this guy was built up for so long, and had an insanely satisfying battle. This thing is a god. No, seriously. It was named after a god because of its power. If that isn't awesome, I don't know what is.

The battle had both epic tone and excellent mechanics. His attacks are diverse and satisfying to overcome. And he looks absolutely amazing

It's so unique! There is no need to explain why it deserves this place. The dark frenzy virus, the majestic but also badass design, the power!

Is easily one of the coolest monsters lore wise but his fight is not very challenging basically just gore in rage mode


A kind and compassionate monster that spews out raging balls of fire to provide warmth to orphans and kittens, so they don't die in the cold of winter.

It's the almighty king of the skies.

King of the skies and the Emblem of monster hunter. It has been in every monster hunter game since 2004

Best and most favorite


He just looks hella cool man

Lightning crocodile monster type thing I guess but it is very cool

Oh hail lord of the sea

Amazing design and really fun fight


A dragon that looks like it have Blades on the front of the wing makes it look like the Ninja of the monster hunter universe.

Jet black shadow with Glowing Red eyes, your argument is invalid

It's beautiful and awesome!

I want it in world


The most difficult fight since the anjanath but come on an elder Dragon that eats other elder dragons. What is there not to love?

Nergigante was such a tough fight for me the first time, got carted again and again but that sweet sensation of victory when I finally downed the beast can't be beat. That and he's one of the tougher fights in MHW that's also a ton of fun.

Bad ass

One of the coolest designs and lore. Is a spiky dragon that eats other dragons. Has a really cool armor set.


Also known as fire-pike wyverns, Agnaktor use their tough beaks and great strength to burrow through rock. However, their hardened-lava armor becomes soft when they burrow underground or are attacked with fire or explosives.

I will always have Agnaktor as my favourite Monster Hunter monster ever

Awesome monster goes with the awesome fight.

Why is it at the top?

Gore Magala

Gore magala. The monster that got me into monster hunter
From great buildup. Being a rival to your player character. Along with that: His frenzy affected the game so much. Aka apex monsters
Fun and interesting fighting style with a unique gimmick.

This monster should definitely be added to World and they should have a little frenzy side story in like a dlc

The theme for this thing is awesome!

Looks Amazing

The Newcomers

? Gogmazios


? Nerscylla

The Contenders


This monster should be way higher on the list.At least number three.he's the coolest looking dragon I have ever seen.(besides rathalos)

How is this guy 23?! He kicks all sorts of ass and has the coolest looking armour, plus the white form looks like it could reign all hell upon us, it's amazing!

Didn't the Fatalis basically annihilate an entire Civilization? I'd say that's pretty awesome

Fatalis could devastate all the monsters in mhw
pd looks awesome


A giant hungry cucumber

A badass trex

I love devils and Dino’s so yeah best monster for me


Literally has the best design and his fight is really cool for being the final boss of World.

Really good design, great late/endgame monster.

Big and Bad. Is there anything I left out?

It has coolest design


Wyverns that rule the eternally frozen Tundra. Barioth use their huge tusks and spiked scales to move freely atop the slippery ice; this ability makes them very difficult to keep up with.

The saber toothed tiger aesthetic is too good to deny.

Best design...a mix of a reptilian and a feline



One of my favourite monsters in the series. It has a fun fight and stays on the ground a reasonable amount for a reasonable amount of time. It also has a great fight theme creating a great atmosphere. Another thing I like is the weapons and armour and their gimmick.

My favourite monster. Everything from the weapons, to the design, the music, the armour, everything about the seregios is awesome!

This demon is a beast and his weapons have the roll to sharpen thing. His design and fight are really cool.

No way is it not the best monster in the whole series


A literal rocket powered elder dragon, what else could you possibly want? Shoots up in the sky like a comet, to come crashing down on any unsuspecting hunter, can flip his wings into different stances... and its orchestral theme is one of the very best the series has ever got to experience. We need this back into world!

Rocket powered elder dragon, need I say more?

The idea of a rocket dragon is just badass.


You've never played against him if you don't vote

Awesome! Dude, this thing is, like, AMAZING!

Amatsu vs zinogre


My personal favorite as it has the best everything. My favorite part is the roar.

Absolute power.. Need I say more?

It really rules as it is the beast that slaughters everything even Gammoths.

It will attack everything even Gammoths.


A mountain sized snake with bladed scales on the back, head and claws.

One of my favorites being one if not the largest monster hunter monster it's a giant mountain snake! what more could you ask for!

I love this boss. The idea is cool, but good luck finding anyone who wants to fight this thing and knows what they are doing. - sslick9001


Glacial Agnaktor

A Tundra-based subspecies of Agnaktor that spits powerful jets of water. Its sharp beak allows it to burrow into the permafrost and clad itself in a layer of ice. This icy armor can only be melted with heat-based attacks.

Kushala Daora

Is a unique Elder Dragon capable of harnessing the power of wind. Its skin is plated with metal, which it has to shed occasionally, and it will defend itself fiercely from Hunters.

It is op and will wipe your party/squad in any game

I hate the wind but everything else is cool.

This guy made my love this game even more : )

Kulve Taroth

Though I don't use the armor, I really like the way it looks.

Just a really awesome monster in every way

Is the real queen

Vaal Hazak

VERY COOL design and great for farming elder bones and blood because it's way under powered.

The fight might be a bit underwhelming, but the theme makes up for it.

Can't believe he's not higher. The badass zombie dragon with 2 jaws, an amazing battle theme, and a super stressful effluvial effect. Vaal Hazak isn't the strongest dragon, but he's one of the most unique



Forest-and mountain-dwelling beasts found in humid regions. Though known more for fishing and standing upright to collect honey, their thick claws and heavy forearm plating allow them to deliver powerful blows to any aggressor.


Barroth usually remain beneath the mud, perhaps to shield themselves from heat; they are even known to attack by flinging mud. They will charge in a frenzy at anything that disturbs their bogs.
