** A rare occurrence is when a Deviljho moves into the area you're in JUST as you are walking into the stage boundary. You're not expecting anything and then OH MY GOD THERE'S A GIANT FREAKING DINOSAUR RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. And of course it plays the ScareChord of a monster noticing you. Watch out, [[TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]]... there's a new {{Jump Scare}}r in town.

** Also, unlike other end-game bosses (ala Elder Dragons) in the franchise, which at least have some sort of in-game references (be it poems, documents and else) hinting their presence or origins, ''[[NothingIsScarier there's absolutely nothing]]'' hinting the presence of [[spoiler:Gogmazios]]. It really sinks that, when the guild ''knows nothing'' about an ancient monster [[spoiler:which has the '''first''' Dragonator stuck in the tar on its back]], then ''where the hell does this thing come from!?'' [[spoiler:And then there's the whole WMG about Gogmazios is actually an artificial dragon-weapon which wants revenge on humans......]]

* ''XX'' gives us [[spoiler:Atoraru Ka]] as the game's FinalBoss. For the third time in the series the FinalBoss isn't an Elder Dragon (the other two are Akantor and Ukanlos), but one can't possibly imagine [[spoiler:a giant leaf mantis]] to be as ''strong'' as one unlike the former two, could it? That is, until one discovers that ItCanThink [[spoiler: as not only does it defend itself by [[ImprovisedWeapon swinging around debris--including discarded]] ''[[ImprovisedWeapon dragonators]]''--at hunters]]]], but it's also capable of [[spoiler: literally ''constructing'' a HumongousMecha out of said debris by webbing them together and powering it with the cocooned remains of its mates]]! And according to its backstory, it had defeated '''entire armies''' on its own with said [[spoiler: mecha]]. Think about it: [[spoiler:a bug]] ''smart enough to utilize [[spoiler:human technology]]'' to fight against humans. ''Just how many more of these super-intelligent beasts are there in the wild?''

** This also leads to another form of FridgeHorror: [[spoiler: the Monster Hunter lore had long referenced artificial weapons like {{Flesh Golem}}s made of Elder Dragon parts as having existed in the distant past. The question is, WHY did they resort to such drastic--if inhumane--measures? Is it because [[AlwaysABiggerFish something bigger, badder and]] '''[[AlwaysABiggerFish smarter''']] than any of the currently known monsters is still out there, waiting to take revenge on humanity for the [[SinsOfOurFathers sins of the Ancient Civilization]]...possibly as intelligent as Atoraru Ka if not moreso?]]

** Picture this: You've been stalking a large monster for a few minutes, and finally manage to locate the thing. Right after engaging it in combat, you hear a loud ''thump'' behind you, the "spotted" ScareChord plays, and the screen vibrates from a loud roar that isn't coming from the thing you're fighting...

** In ''Tri'' (but not ''Tri Ultimate'' and ''Portable 3rd''), the caves in Tundra areas 4 and 5 are pitch-black due to a lack of light. All you can see of the Gigginox are its bioluminescent patches. [[SarcasmMode Sweet dreams.]]

* To start, whenever a large monster in the area sights you, a ScareChord plays. Woe betide you if the monster is right behind you and you didn't expect it, or you're headed for an area boundary and the monster suddenly shows up right in front of you--it has no smooth transition into the area so it just suddenly ''pops up''. It's a JumpScare both out-of and InUniverse, because unless you have certain food buffs, your character ''[[OhCrap flinches]]''.
