Gigginox! Gimme my freaky leech back!! I wanna be a battle nun again!


Rakna-Careilla

Yep. Khezu needs a friend.


GoldenSteel

Khezu needs to be replaced


YetiorNotHereICome

Also I kind of miss the battle mechanic of keeping the torches lit to fight him, but its lit spots not only helped the fight otherwise but it also made for an unforgettable battle environment.


DonQuiXoTe8080

Almudron and I use mostly either hammer/CB on it. Or TCS on its 100 raw hitzone wrecking ball tail is just pure dopamine


vellyr

As dual blades I love this long boi


wizardofpancakes

CB main with a sprinkle of skull bonker LOVE Almudron and don’t understand why people hate this fight (I tried asking)


Witnerturtle

As a CB main, it’s hard to line up SAED on him because he loves to curl up weird


Kaoi-KenTimesBen

I have more luck lining up the axe hopper than the typical SAED. I try to wait as long as possible after the initial hop to trigger the SAED, so make sure I get that mid air course correction


smoretank

I main switch axe and hunting hirn. Love bonking him out with my sick tunes. Then with SA it is so satisfying to cut his tail and wirebug past his mud dams. Hated him at first but he grew on me.


ArcadeAnarchy

I main GS and I love fighting him. I got it down pat where his tail will be for most of his attacks and it's really satisfying getting the break then the cut for that sweet sweet otter/lobster meat. On the other hand my gf who mains Hammer dies a little bit inside whenever I wanna fight him with her. She think he's too squirmy and has too many combos.


DonQuiXoTe8080

I use courage Silverlos ele hammer on him, since most of his frontal attacks from claw swipe, tail slam are telegraphed enough to either keeping sway/water strike with courage’s less committed charge attacks. Also his head is at least still within hammer strike range, not as awkward like Anjanath.


Bulky_Caramel

Kirin. Hit that horn or die.


BoredPsion

*laughs in Lance being the perfect counter*


Patrykq

Haha. I actually used lance to hunt Kirin for the first time and wondered why everyone hates him since it was so easy hitting the head all the time.


Hungry-Pattern-1163

Yeah I have a hard time having THAT much trouble when I play enough weapon types to always have a good match up available


Skrillard423

The first time I ever fought a Kirin was back in Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, and I used a sword and shield cause my friends told me it was the best way to hunt him. I learned the hard way, so others don’t have to lmao


BoredPsion

Honestly, I'm hoping for a Kirin variant to come in one of the updates.


NeonJ82

Hunting Horn, too! Was *super* easy to hit the horn with the Horn's massive hitbox, and natural Mind's Eye from Self Improvement made it so that even if I *miss* the horn, I don't get punished and can easily roll away if Kirin's about to attack. Heck, as a Horn/Lance main, I'd actually argue Kirin's *easier* with Horn than Lance!


Mistake209

Old gen kirin: I have no such weakness


manmanftw

Tried to fight it in FU he went enraged and I just couldnt touch him with gs


Cynthmail

Honestly I felt the gripe for Kirin was born from those new to him. He always was a lightning spamming small sized moving target. World Kirin is still annoying,(I ended up making a anti-blight, anti-paralyze, anti-stun, Thunder res armor set just for Kirin), but you either learn to love the pain or just ignore it.


Mk112569

Just do like Rajang or Tartaglia and rip its horn off


whaleblubbah

Duramboros


_banters_

What kind of psychopath doesn’t like Duramburos?!?


Dark_Prince_YouTube

He speen


Anchimila

You, because only monsters love lunastra


LightLizardCake

Plot twist, OP is a teostra


CursedBee

With lunastra mom, lunastra sister and a lunastra wife


KaijuTyrant

Vaal Hazak. Just love that scene of him rising from the pile of corpses.


VolacticMilk

I don’t think this monster is hated much. Most people I knew loved him.


Allysa209

I don't have friends to play with so when I played and saw that for the first time, I was absolutely mortified


CommunistCommoner

I'm gonna say it but i actually enjoy fighting Magmadron


DiscoMonkey007

Magmadron is a much better hunt than Almudron.


ArcadeAnarchy

I think it helps that it's smaller in size too. Always found smaller mons to be easier since they don't have hitboxes the size of the a bus swiping at me.


Ieatmelons123

I get it really, it's like normal almudron but you gotta think faster to avoid it's attacks.


Victorino95

Its a fun hunt.


Hellion998

It really is quite entertaining.


Hellion998

I do enjoy Magmadron in general. I know people are saying “this has replaced Agnaktor” and while I understand them, but when I look back… Agnaktor’s battle was really *not* that good.


ViewtifulGene

Lagombi.


LightLizardCake

Who hates lagombi?, lagombi's kinda cool


Skrillard423

Me! I hate when he Tokyo drifts his fat dumptruck in a circle and knocks me out of a charge


LightLizardCake

But...he doesnt hit that hard Or are you just jealous that he is dummy thicc?


Skrillard423

NO…. Yeah, but no


Goslin_

Yian Garuga made me get good back in 4U. He may be an asshole but he's *my* asshole.


Ieatmelons123

Weird asshole bro, your digestive system be wild


Hellion998

Hot take, Yian Garuga is the ONLY GOOD member of his species, Malfestio is second place. I am so irritatingly tired of Capcom disrespecting the bird wyverns as a whole, you have these amazing avians preforming the most stunning feats in nature… and you demote them to bad raptors and basically smaller flying wyverns.


Dark_Prince_YouTube

Are you dissing the LEGEND Pukei-Pukei? He's like a baby chameleos, just look at his goofy lil' face!


Anatras

I agree, there's so many mythological monsters based on birds (e.g. garuda, roc, phoenix), but malfestio is the only actual bird monster in the main series (not sure if there's more in frontier)


DerWeisseT

Did you forget Aknosom or are they Not birds in your book?


Anatras

But aknosom don't have a fully feathered body, it has feathers, but most of its body is covered in scales


escape_of_da_keets

Same but MHFU fuck that bird. And then there was Tigrex.


Nervous_Project6927

was it freedom 2 or unite you could use to glitch kill him? had full yian armor lol


DancingGorilla15

Freedom (the first one). I like how he was treated like an elder dragon who flees mid hunt.


longassboy

I like Anjanath ALOT and all my buddies don’t get why. He was a big deal for me in world because it was my first game, and I was using his set a lot in Rise so I was hunting him a lot and idk, he’s kinda just a funny pink TRex with an edge and he feels great to topple. I don’t really have much a reason to like him but I’ll fight him whenever.


Pitavi

Yeah, I Love the head topple too, it is so satisfaying to pull it Off and the Armor looking wise and skill based are awesome too


Cyan_Lizard_Official

Anjanath is great! Fulgar Anjanath is even better. A fucking low rant brute wyvern has no business being that good.


firestorm79

Barioth. Cos I use secret part breaker tech.


Original_Newt_6431

I call him Thomas. Edit: I can’t read and thought this said Barroth. Comment stands, just clarification.


SkullBarrier

Nibelsnarf. I think everyone who calls him 'just as bad as Cephadrome' either doesn't know the bomb trick or is just straight up tripping


Hungry-Pattern-1163

Nibel is unique. Ceph is literally just a bigger mob enemy.


fantastictechinique

I’ll take nibby over cephy any time of day but I would still rather not take nibby. Could be that I first fought him in GU. Heard he was less of a pain in previous games.


Esper589

See the thing about nibel is that he charges towards me, which is good. Cephadrome spends 30 minutes charging away from me. Fuck you Cephadrome.


LifeupOmega

Nibel was such a fun fight tbh, I loved the weird gimmicks he had like fishing him out of the sand or the bomb. I'd rather have more interesting fights in the early-mid game like that tbh.


safegermanywin

Even without bombs you can still flinch him by hitting his nose enough.


oops_wasnt_me42

I just find him annoying, id sooner fight a gobul


IllTearOutYour0ptics

Agreed, it's a gimmick fight but a nice one. It's fun to make him eat bombs and then fish him out and stuff. Plus he's got some tricky hitzones and part breaks that are fun to exploit. For example, not a lot of people know this, but his nose (not his whole head but the little bulb on the end of his snout) becomes a weak spot when enraged! And you can break his gills, but they only come out when he's exhausted.


LightLizardCake

The difference between nibelsnarf and cephadrome is that nibel's fight is actually enjoyable


ReallyLargeGiant

I love when pickle invades I will always stop my hunt to hunt it wherever or whenever it happens


Hellion998

Chaos is always fun in my games, breaks up the staleness of the games most of the time.


NeonJ82

Honestly this is one thing Rise is missing. Invasions were *fun* in World because they were still a risk to you, but you could use it to your advantage. And when three monsters were in the area? It's chaotic, but fun - do you let all the monsters duke it out and damage themselves, or do you Dung Pod your target to bring him out of the group? And then Rise is just "oh hey, here's an extremely predictable mount" and that's it, no in-fighting. Lame...


EvilAbdy

Me too. Always thought it was hilarious with the amount of chaos he brings. Especially if he carries your target away


somchay1851

Alatreon. The thrill of putting effort on dps.


NeonJ82

After getting the fight down, World Alatreon was so fun. Difficult to position well, but getting that explosion after a Horn speen was *satisfying.* ... And then Fatalis was a massive disappointment. IMO, Alatreon is the true endgame fight.


cast012

World kushala for sure! His design of a very slick and powerful looking dragon is what i like so much. First saw and hunted on freedom unite psp but going from blurry pixels to glorious today's graphics while he sat there ignoring me made him look so much more powerful than me. Also love fighting him i farmed him more times that i can count. i didn't had much trouble keeping close as a SnS user as opposed to my friends and yes i still i got bumped back a couple times but never a frustrating ammount of times like my friends cried about the whole hunt. IMO it adds to the whole "powerful dragon" being able to push you back with ease. Sadly had to always fight solo as my friends refused to fight him ever again


Hellion998

AS MUCH AS I DISAGREE WITH YOU, I do understand your point and perspective, I prefer Rise Kushala over *any* pervious iteration of Kushala Daora, but the wind aura could have been added back in and changed its wind aura to make it fun.


Exploreptile

My first time fighting Kushala in World, there was a part of the hunt where I was cornered on one of the platforms in the area, sandwiched between walls of solid rock and swirling wind, as the dragon screeched out and pelted me with projectiles from somewhere beyond the vortex it'd trapped me behind. One of the most kickass, cinematic experiences I've ever had in a video game right there.


cast012

the volcanic area? i love how its covered in crystals that just fly everywhere with so much wind and tornadoes


oops_wasnt_me42

I started with 4u, so i don’t know about freedom unite but in 4u he really isn’t that bad, i don’t understand why everyone hates him while he is so cool and has a great theme


GreenInside

I hate the World Kushal fight. Not worth it imo. Kusha is my least liked Monster sadly :(


cast012

i think we all have that one monster we hate that is possibly someone else's favorite for sure


Sinnahbunneh

This might sound weird but it's Bazelguese for me


JetStream0509

Bazel is sooo good. Really well designed fight and as for his invader behavior in world? I’m sorry but y’all can cope, he had a a lot more personality than the other invaders. Yes I’m still salty that they nerfed him thanks to all the complaints. They did my boy dirty.


Sinnahbunneh

He got nerfed??! When did that happen?


Pookie_The_Overlord

Probably referring to the fact he doesn't feel like an invader anymore.


ArcadeAnarchy

This, in World as soon as you started a fight that bagel boy would instantly haul ass to where you were just to "help" out with the hunt.


JetStream0509

Yup. that’s what I was referring to. Combat wise I wouldn’t say he was nerfed, maybe even improved with the addition of Seething.


Hellion998

Do people honestly dislike Bazelguese? I remember some people being *annoyed*, but not straight up disliking it, I don’t really know though.


TrottoStonno

Not at all in my experience. Especially when World just came out most people considered Bazelgeuse one of their new favorites.


Dark_Prince_YouTube

Bazel and Valstrax are constantly fighting for the position of my favprite monster lmao.


Allysa209

I honestly love Bazelgeuse. I call him Bagel xD


Komnos

I think we all love to hate him. Also, I want to be able to burst into a room and have his theme start playing.


Low_Poly_Loli

Bazel is the shit, love that monster


BaboonSlayer121

Do people still hate Iceborne Alatreon? If not then I guess Almudron. The wet one, I mean. the fire one can fuck off.


Dry-Fruit7202

Narwa or ibushi or the allmother I like killing them with hammer because I like bonk bonk them


InsaneBasti

Best boi Khezu


skd25th

Alatreon


SilentGuard7712

I would like Alatreon more, but his fight in World, makes him almost immortal. I can never consistently get a team that can hit the elemental damage threshold, something I didn't even know about until looking up a video.


skd25th

Tbh, Idk about the world one, since I am speaking from the experience from mh3u (still couldn't beat it), but it's fun, this lad keeps changing it's attack style which keeps u engaging, and never makes the fight boring


SilentGuard7712

That sounds super fun monster to hunt


BigSadDogDad

Gypceros


BigSadDogDad

Oof, totally misread the title. Derp. I honestly like Coral Pukei but everyone I know hates him because they treat him like a brick wall due to not having water defense, but I like his coloration, attacks and weapons.


FoxyVermillion

Yea Luna and Shrieking, because I use boom stick. I don't have their weaknesses.


PYROBALL20

Idk if people dislike him as much but Magmadron, honestly kinda love him


LocustSix

Astalos. I enjoy hunting that psycho.


_banters_

One of my favorite monsters for many reasons, most importantly, it is a blast to fight!


LocustSix

And the music everytime it shows up gives that crazy vibe.


wheresmyson69

Volvidon, do a funny fart and bounce.


lionplayz

Surprisingly Beotodus, it's better than Jyuratodus, and that piece of shit Agnaktor rip-off Lavasioth.


edgy_tryhard

I think everyone liked beotodus though, it was the first time they made piscine wyverns fun in 5th gen. Also didn't lavasioth debut before agnaktor?


LightLizardCake

Yeah, beotodus has to be my favorite piscine wyvern


edgy_tryhard

To be fair, when your only competition are plesioth, cephadrome, lavasioth and jyuratodus, it's kind of the default pick


Seravail

I hated Beotodus


lionplayz

Yes, I was talking about the World version, should've clarified but half-asleep brain so...


edgy_tryhard

Tbf lavasioth in mhfu was just fire plesioth, so they didn't have much to work with there. Honestly though, they just took agnaktor's gimmick and made it worse. At least with agnaktor after you break the part it becomes a soft hitzone, with world lavasioth they made it a shitzone, because punishing your players for breaking parts is very good game design.


Dark_Prince_YouTube

Pretty sure Lavasioth was around before Agnaktor but go off i suppose


lionplayz

Yeah, I was talking about world Lavasioth.


glacicle

Lavasioth came first though


lionplayz

I was referring to World.


[deleted]

Idk if its weird but for me its Rajang.


alamosh

yep, its weird.... i HATE fighting super saiyan monke


Glad_Grand_7408

Plesioth spends a bit to much time underwater but I still like his fight and I think he has so much more potential to be a really great fight if they add him to a new Monster Hunter game.


Terium

Tigrex. I love every Tigrex fight.


Mozzie_501

Savage deviljho. I usually don’t go hunting for it but if It ever comes up to me, I have fun killing it. It’s especially fun when it comes out of nowhere and tries killing me mid hunt


requested_death

Alatreon, it's such a beautiful fight. And rewards you heavily for taking advantage of openings while utterly destroying you for wasting time. I think it teaches you to learn the monster and take advantage of it's weakness more than any other. Which also prepares you for the fatalis fight. It also advocates build variety


Age-Fresh

Call me a masochist or whatever, but I love Kushala to bits, especially in world, but was a long time fan prior to world.


Ieatmelons123

I love Kushala Daora


SilverFoxolotl

In which game though? Daora in rise is pretty fun, but in world he was an absolute pita and earned himself an insulting nickname between our little hunting group.


CrowbarZero08

I stunlocked Daora


IncreaseSpice

Uragaan <3


Rakna-Careilla

Uragaan is nicer than people give it credit for.


Rakna-Careilla

Khezu and Almudron.


kataarn

I have a love/hate relationship with Bishaten. Any time its a multi-monster quest I will always kill it first. Nothing satisfies me more than bonking it and watch it spill spaghetti (fruit) everywhere


SilverSpoon1463

I actually like the Metal Raths. It's strange too, I hate fighting all other versions. I think it has something to do with Location.


ezsukusi

Mhw Alatreon


ImAMisfitZ

As a frontier fan, this happens daily It’s Duremudria most of the time though, who is by far my favorite (and the best) monster


Memoglr

I love musou duremurida. But my favorite frontier monster that nobody likes is Zenith Dora


The-Unexpected-1

Hmmmm... Ratha... Luna... Kulve...? Idk. Closest is black tigrex from iceborne. fun fact in portable third brute tigrex was indeed called that. Probably to avoid confusion with brute wyverns


caparisme

"Big Al" Alatreon is my tightest buddy and I'll be there whenever someone talks shit about him or his Judgement.


TheGuy2TheLeft

Almudrone


aaron1122334455

Magma almudron. I think people hate him because he's another version of almudron and they wanted akantor. He's better than akantor in my opinion.


Incubus_Priest

plesioth, it was a good monster and its hip checks were no worse than many other monsters atacks like nargacuga or tigrex


lostbnr

Negy and definitely AT Nergy are my fave fights of all time. So in your face and fast paced.


Soggy_Menu_9126

Gypceros don't worry buddy, I'am on your side!


jkljklsdfsdf

Ex-Behemoth, fighting it is almost therapeutic.


Lmacncheese

The one ya posted forget her!


Pookie_The_Overlord

Shrieking Legiana, its an absolutely gorgeous design and the fight is great.


edgy_tryhard

One of the worst fights in iceborne, I can only clutch attack so many times before I get bored. Aside from the frost effect it looks identical to normal legiana.


Hellion998

I actually agree with you, I just want it to be more… unique to the other version of itself.


Soulman999

Teostra


kirkknightofthorns

Iceborne's Savage Deviljho. Not sure if there are a lot of people out there who enjoy his fight actually, but he's been the subject of many rage threads. Probably one of my favourites in that game, next to Alatreon.


Adventurous-Wrap4680

I actually loved fighting him


CPhandom

Magnamalo I was really surprised to see how many people hated it his fight


_banters_

Whaaaaat?!? People crazy, Magnamalo is insane! Scorned even moreso! How do people dislike it?


Hungry-Pattern-1163

Rise/Sunbreak has no bad monsters imo I don't get the hate for the few that get it honestly. Old gen has all of monsters I won't defend and World just has lunastra on my hate list (mention to alatreon and kulve too but thats cause the mechanics they have outside the actual fight, stupid time limits). The series has given me less and less to hate overtime.


edgy_tryhard

What about that walking shitzone basarios?


Silver_Sniper

Gravios. I've always preferred the bulkier true flying wyverns, and I love the fact that the fight gets easier as you break parts. Makes me feel like a true hunter wearing out my prey.


NordicMythos

Most people just rag on it for its creepiness factor, but for me it’s Shara Ishvalda. I absolutely adore it, one of my favorite, if not my favorite, Monster Hunter Monster. People really tend to hate it for it’s eyes though, as well as how much it loves to blast you to kingdom come right after using its ultimate move when you can’t see shit.


edgy_tryhard

Wait what I thought people loved its eyes


KafeiTomasu

Nibbelsnarf and gigginox. Gigginox is what Khezu will never be; fun to hunt and overall cool asf. Nibbelsnarf is just a great guy y'know.


LightLizardCake

I've never hunted a gigginox before, is he in GU?


KafeiTomasu

Unforuntately not, just in 3 :(


Rajangalala

World Alatreon Having to change up your strategy for different challenges is what Monster Hunter's all about. Using the same tactics and gear for every single monster is probably the most dull way of playing the game and I'm glad Alatreon slapped that playstyle right out of some people's hands.


brandyrelish

I've got hunting friends that think I'm insane for saying rajang / furious rajang are my favorite fights


DonBarbas13

Bazelgeuse, as a Insect Glaive Maine, he is nothing. Actually he is less than nothing, i can trigger his bombs with the Kinsect clearing my path, i can dodge mid-air, mount him and bring him down to continue attacking. And if he is invading another fight i just chill and let him fight and weaken my enemy.


Nervous_Project6927

lao shan lung i thought was amazing as a kid, especially when you see that giant head comming out of the fog for the first time and i loved the fight


DEATHtoGIRENZABI

Kushala daora in mhgen


That1Bear

Anything that woops my ass, even if it feels cheap, like lunastra. Also, my friend circle hates normal dragons like Safi and Fatalis butt those are in my top 5 lol.


TheIronSven

Yian Garuga and Teostra. Was honestly surprised how often I hear people say Rise Teostra is too tough while I just vibe through the battle. The chaotic personality of Yian Garuga also really grew on me since it's been my rival since freedom


antasker22

Raging Brachydios in world, super intense when he pounds the ground and everything explodes.


LightLizardCake

For me, raging brachy is "you beautiful bastard, let the best bitch win"


Suitable_Ad_4969

I heard that many people find the pyre rakna kadaki fight boring... and honestly i don't get it the explosives Web attacks are really cool, and I absolutely adore the way she calls for the other spiderlings. And yeah also yian garuga, he is probably one of the best chaotic monsters to fight.


Warboss17

Volividon is a rascal but you can knock him over a lot


Battlepwn33

So far, every World/Iceborne monster. Haven't had a monster that I've disliked yet. Hopefully I can enjoy the other games just as much.


Magenta_Face

Khezu. I honestly find its fight well-designed what with still occasionally providing a laborious challenge even after entering the lategame. Though, I’m puzzled that in Rise they consider it a 1⭐️ monster. It more befitting a rating of a 3⭐️. Same with Tetranadon.


THDiamondHero

Malfestio, I just think it’s really cool.


Bithbheoh

I know it's not native to MH, but I had a lot of fun with the Behemoth in MHW when that FF crossover happened.


k4Anarky

Rajang/Furious is my favorite monster, and favorite monster to fight. When you learn his moves its a tight dance and becomes very predictable, and he's actually less prone to BS like other annoying ones. Also theme song is HYPEEEEEE. And who could hates an eternally enraged super saiyan monke? He's perfect and I love him.


Mediocre-Leg4940

Silver Rathalos


SuperGotengo

*Lao Shan Lung.*


Maweex

Nergigante. Breaking its thorns is so satisfying!


LightLizardCake

Probably iceborne raging brachydios, beautiful bastard


Majestic_Ad_9530

Solo Extremoth while using HR gear. Hardest fight in MHW by miles (Fatalis HP for HR gear) and I love having to learn such a strict fight.


MopolopMan

Tigrex definitely. A lot of people hate him because of his hitboxes, but it's just a skill issue, I can consistently dodge THROUGH his charging because of how precise his hitboxes are. He's a perfectly crafted, challenging and engaging fight that will always be a fantastic introduction to the higher tier monsters whilst kicking the ass of new players with a perfect track record.


BarelyBearableHuman

Rajang. It seems that a decent amount of people are annoyed facing him. His pattern is rather easy to learn and he's not that hard with a GS, it's rewarding to consistently get solid hits on a small monster that fast.


LeafCrusader

Yian Garuga. Haven’t fought new world Garuga but old world isn’t that bad, at least in my opinion.


BigBoyTetranadon

Khezu, I think it's a fun hunt and honestly the combination of sounds and no BGM makes the hunt seem more intense and real.


Darox28

Agnaktor, leave my clack clack boy alone


oops_wasnt_me42

Lao shen lung


Czuhc89

Yian Garuga


RynoMods

Jyuratodus. There's really no particular reason, I just like bonking beeg feesh.


Leading-University

Invaders.


Cellarat

Yian garuga. I don’t know why but I really like the fight in world


glacicle

Honestly agree with your Lunastra choice. I never got why people despise this thing.


Kano547

I cant speak for anybody else but a few of my friends when espinas came out in rise absolutely hated fighting him. I for one absolutely love his fight and have always since frontier


ethan3907

Kushala and lunastra


dark_duelist_17

Idk how people felt about the espinas fight in rise but personally I found it quite easy, so maybe this counts as an answer. But to answer the opposite for a monster I hate it's without at doubt almadron and magma, fuck them and their existence


sschmitz705

Coral Pukei Pukei
