* The new flagship monster for Monster Hunter 4 is the Gore Magala, which is essentially a Gigginox, but [[FromBadToWorse worse]]. Take the Gigginox, paint it [[DarkIsEvil black]], give it an insect-like exoskeleton, and give it TheVirus with the ability to start a ZombieApocalypse simply by having a hunter or another monster touch it or the hair and scales it leaves behind. The end result looks a lot like a Xenomorph. It's theme music isn't that bad, but its "noticed you" ScareChord is absolutely ''terrifying''. Oh, and the worst part? [[spoiler: It's only in its juvenile form; turns out theGore Magala is a baby ''Elder Dragon''. You fight the adult version of it later in the game, which is [[BlatantLies even more fun.]]]]

** Diablos themselves are just incredibly intimidating monsters to look at, looking like some crazy mix of a T-Rex, Triceratops, dragon and a scorpion. It's also huge, and the screech it lets out can be extremely unsettling.

* Also in World, Elder Dragons will be able to fight each other. StoryAndGameplaySegregation in that these battles will most likely resemble other monster vs monster battles in the game, but InUniverse the concept of such a battle is horrifying. Elder Dragons are immensely powerful creatures and two or more of them getting into a punch-up would devastate the environment the fight happened in. That's not even getting into if the fight happened in a city.

** Deviljho is confirmed for ''Monster Hunter: World.'' And loading screens won't save you this time. Be afraid. Be VERY afraid.

* The Rotten Vale is essentially Nakarkos's lair turned into an entire hunting ground. It is made up almost entirely of bones, is full of dark corridors, several areas are filled with toxic gas that turns the wildlife violent, and the inhabitants are all nasty. One of the areas is carpeted with countless bloodied carcasses. Sometimes, a dead monster will fall from the map above. Ironically, said map is the Coral Highlands, one of the brightest and most visually stunning areas in the game. And the kicker? Most of the place is made of a ''Dalamadur skeleton''.
* The Odogaron, one of the inhabitants of the Rotten Vale, looks like a huge skinless zombie dog with massive jaws. Its main feature is its ''second'' set of claws, which protrude unnaturally from under its feet. When affected by the toxic gas in the Rotten Vale, the veins on its back glow bright red, Deviljho-style. Its appearances in trailers and pre-release gameplay footage had it ''brutalize'' other large monsters, shaking Paolumu like a chew toy and bringing down a Radobaan.

* Despite being more cartoony then most other games ''Stories'' actually opens with the first ever monster attack we see on an actual village [[spoiler:by a nargacuga]] and it's surprisingly terrifying. The beast shows up out of nowhere, ignores the closest combat ready defender and instead rampages right into the village. In seconds it utterly decimates a few buildings and kills ''at least'' one person before the defenders rally to drive it off. This was the first time we got to see the sheer havoc the monsters can cause if hunters or their equivalents fail to drive them back.
** Also gets some AdultFear in the form of a group of young children running off into the woods. Said children stumble into a ''rath'' nest. Dan's relieved comment about how lucky they are an adult didn't show up likely sent a cold chill down the spines of series veterans who know these wyverns are infamous for their ability to track people who mess with their eggs.

*** 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.]]''
