The Top Ten

1 Alatreon

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. - nexusw427

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

Terrifying and beautiful

2 Brachydios

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. - nexusw427

3 Zinogre

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.

Oh hell yeah zinogre is so cool. his fight in my opinion is the most fun

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

4 Agnaktor

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. - nexusw427

Awesome monster goes with the awesome fight.

Why is it at the top? - llamabaconllama37

There is no way to say this thing is bad. It is respectfully my 3rd favorite monster and it has amazing model. All hail Agnaktor. Just kidding #Tigrexforlife

5 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.

Dude straight made my day

6 Lagiacrus

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

Oh hail lord of the sea

His design is one of the best in Monster Hunter series and in MH3U his underwater fight is the best

7 Rathalos

It's the almighty king of the skies.

8 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. - nexusw427

9 Nargacuga

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

It's beautiful and awesome!


Fun to kill, goves cool armor and weapons, cool disign and awesome moves

10 Seregios

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.

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

Easily the best monster in the entire series

No way not co

The Contenders

11 Arzuros

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. - nexusw427

12 Barioth

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. - nexusw427

13 Sand Barioth

A Barioth subspecies that resides in the Sandy Plains. Their breath is strong enough to generate tornadoes, which they then use to travel at high speeds. Their yellow carapaces are tinted red, and their fangs shine deep blue when polished. - nexusw427

The badass sabertooth tiger

14 Fatalis

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!

Common, his the strongest elder dragon there is.

This is the strongest of the elder dragons, it destroyed an entire kingdom in a single day and it is so terrifying to other rlder dragons that it scarded a Lao Sham lung into mindlessly running into a fortress.

Idiots who don't vote for him probably didn't play mhfu

15 Akantor

Akantors are so powerful, they can have extremely negative effects on the environment they reside in. Predator and prey flee from Akantors and only the largest wyverns and Elder Dragons even dare challenge them.

16 Gore Magala Gore Magala

Looks Amazing

Best monster, hands down.

Plays into the story line better than any monster, brought along frenzy, which forces you to fight instead of blocking and praying. Not only does he look amazing, but his fight is also top notch.

17 Barroth

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. - nexusw427

18 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.

This guy made my love this game even more : )

19 Amatsu
20 Jade Barroth

A subspecies of Barroth found in colder climates. Lacking mud, they coat themselves with snow and ice, which can be flung at perceived threats. They are known for bashing their overgrown crowns into the ice, and subsist primarily on Bnahabra. - nexusw427
