*** Not to mention, the aforementioned [[spoiler: {{Flesh Golem}}, called the Equal Dragon Weapon,]] is horrific in and of itself. [[spoiler: The Equal Dragon Weapon is a massive, dragon-shaped abomination seemingly cobbled together from robotic parts and the corpses of more than 30 elder dragons. As if that wasn't ghoulish enough, concept art shows what the Equal Dragon Weapon looks like when it's rediscovered many years after the war. The {{Flesh Golem}} is badly decomposed, with exposed muscles and bones, a torn-off arm, and organs dangling from between its ribs. Perhaps it's for the best that the Equal Dragon Weapon has never appeared in the games and has only been mentioned in art books.]]

* The Rajang looks like a cross between a gorilla and a minotaur, is one of the few non-Elder Dragon, non-BossOnlyLevel monsters to have a ''six-star'' threat rating alongside Deviljho, can knock back hunters with horrifying distance (we're talking halfway across the area, if not more depending on terrain), has a scream that just sounds so ''[[UncannyValley wrong]]'' when it fires its thunder beam attack, can lift up large chunks of earth to toss at you, and has a somersault dive attack that can mean sudden knockouts for unprepared hunters. In case you try to make it leave with a Dung Bomb, [[SuperPersistentPredator it]] [[NoSell won't]]. In ''4 Ultimate'', it's one of the monsters eligible for Apex status, and one of its new tricks as an Apex monster is lifting up a ''much'' larger chunk of land to hurl in your direction. Worst of all, it can pop in as an intruder on G-rank quests with unstable environments (see general Apex example above).

By the way, did you think fighting a Deviljho with no armor in ''4'' was scary enough? A G-rank DLC quest in ''4 Ultimate'' applies the same "no equipment besides your weapon" rule to a fight with an ''Apex Rajang''. Good luck!

* Frontier's Raviente is the largest monster in the series and possibly one of the most intimidating. When it gets hungry, it gets up and starts ''wiping out entire ecosystems.'' It takes dozens of hunters several hours to kill this thing... if they even do.
** Its [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_GS61DtvPo introductory video]] really shows you how hugely destructive this thing is. Depicting a peaceful island, flourishing with life, the mood suddenly gets tense and all the monsters start fleeing from something. Suddenly. the Raviente pops up from the ground, swallows a dozen tank-sized Aptonoth in one bite, then proceeds to destroy everything in its wake. A volcano erupts, the earth splits, and this is all from one monster. It really means something when everything else, up to the Espinas and the Rathian, is ''[[TheDreaded running away from you.]]''

* The Ceadeus and Goldbeard Ceadeus, if you think about it. The standard Ceadeus has one horn growing [[EyeScream over its eye]], which--as evidenced by the Moga earthquakes--causes it an immense amount of pain. To make matters worse, the Goldbeard Ceadeus' eyes have both fallen victim to its horns in the same way, assumedly blinding it entirely. But, like the Khezu, it can still sense where you are. ''But, unlike'' the Khezu, it doesn't need to sniff around. It just ''knows.''

** The afore mentioned Khezu dragging a Kelbi to its doom.

** The afore mentioned Khezu dragging a Kelbi to its doom. By which we mean ''seizing it by the rump and slowly swallowing it whole while it desperately, but futilely tries to break free.''



* The Daimyo Hermitaur and the Shogun Ceanataur are based off of giant hermit crabs. So, they'd live in giant shells or rocks, right? No, they live in the massive skulls of ''other'' nightmare inducing monsters.

** A ''4''/''4U'' quest has you hunt two Deviljho...with no protective armor to save you. Fittingly, the quest is titled "Series/NakedAndAfraid".

While MonsterHunter mainly borders on sheer [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesomeness]], some of the things present are a little more than [[NightmareFuel sheer terror.]]

** Or, if they're anything like ''real'' deer, it could be GameplayAndStoryIntegration, and you're cutting a chunk of whatever they're eating when you knock them out. In real life, deer are considered herbivores and have the teeth for it but are notorious scavengers and opportunistic hunters. Which is its own level of horror...

** Speaking of Khezu, one of its materials, Pale Extract, which is also shared by Gigginox, [[NauseaFuel is used as material for drinks]]. [[https://youtu.be/nEgNhtONuj8 This video sums it up perfectly:]]

** 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?''
