** In ''Generations'', while you're in an online lobby you're not allowed to explore villages. While most services are available through the housekeeper, melding Talismans ''isn't''. On top of that, this means that any Request Log quests that you complete and want to report will have to wait until you go offline, which can be a problem because many rewards for these requests include new armor designs, new kitchen ingredients, and the like.

** While most small monsters are [[TheScrappy widely hated]] by the fanbase for [[GoddamnedBats interfering with their hunts at every opportunity]], the Konchu are rather popular with players due to their adorable animations and for being funny to watch due to their [[MemeticTroll infamy among players]], provided you're not the one being attacked by them.



** In Japan, Qurupeco and Barroth are the [[TheScrappy least popular]] Bird Wyverns and Brute Wyverns in the series, respectively. Down there, Qurupeco is hated for [[ReplacementScrappy replacing]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse Yian Kut-Ku]] as well as its [[ThatOneAttack monster calls]], and Barroth is considered to be [[OvershadowedByAwesome really bland and ugly in comparison to the other Brute Wyverns]]. In the West, however, they're highly popular due to the former's [[SummonBiggerFish unique battle technique]] and the latter being an effective WakeUpCallBoss.

Down there, Qurupeco is hated received scorn for [[ReplacementScrappy replacing]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse Yian Kut-Ku]] as well as and making hunts more tedious through the use of its [[ThatOneAttack monster calls]], and Barroth is considered to be [[OvershadowedByAwesome really bland and ugly in comparison to the other Brute Wyverns]]. In the West, however, they're highly popular due to much more popular; the former's former is considered to be quite memorable as its [[SummonBiggerFish unique battle technique]] tactic]] makes for some [[FunnyMoments hilarious moments at times]], and the latter is well-liked for being an effective WakeUpCallBoss.



** Blangonga is a GlassCanon that's light on the "cannon" and has an average health pool for its place in the hierarchy. However, its habit of jumping around the area, using techniques like tremors, digging, and [[CoveredInGunge snowman]] that waste time more than they hurt, and [[InASingleBound leaping into the sky]] to transition to any area it likes make it a pain in the ass to bring down.

** Malfestio can [[InterfaceScrew reverse your controls]], which is annoying enough as it is, but can also chain sleep and stun along with it to put you into a CycleOfHurting. While Confusion isn't too troublesome if you know what buttons to press, there's no tell that determines when it ends, which can disorient players trying to work around it, leading to more dangerous situations. It also likes to fly around a lot and has a [[HitboxDissonance questionable hitbox on its glide attack]]. And if you are the sort that adapts to the reversed controls quickly, and even quickly realize that it ends when two exclamation marks appear above your character, your Palicoes will assume you can't and rush to hit you out of it without fail. [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper This gets really irritating]], especially since your character reels pretty far from the hit and takes a second to recover from it, usually right into Malfestio's glide, often resulting in you getting dizzied... which the Palico has significantly less enthusiasm in breaking you out of, of course.

** [[PaletteSwap Sub species]] [[ItsTheSameSoItSucks that have little to no changes from the originals]] are not popular with the fanbase. The first generation is notorious for this, as the only real changes the Subspecies had were color and increased health and power. Fortunately, later generations gave some of them new traits to set themselves apart from the originals such as new moves and different attack patterns, [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap redeeming them in some people's eyes]]. This also applies to [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute different monsters]]; Dah'ren Mohran isn't exactly hated ''per se'', but it often gets bashed by third-generation players and ignored in favor of more original monsters because [[ItsTheSameSoItSucks the battle with it is too similar to Jhen Mohran's]].

* ViewerGenderConfusion: When the designs for the Fated Four were released, many players thought that Gammoth was male and that Mizutsune was female. This turned out to be the opposite of what they expected. [[note]] While the monsters aren't monogender, all the ones found in ''Generations'' are exclusively male and female, respectively.

** On the Deviant side, most players agree that Dreadking Rathalos is the most problematic of them all. Hits a lot harder than most deviants, requires blue sharpness to cut through nearly everything on it, has absurdly powerful ranged attacks AND can inflict severe poison. The Level 10 Dreadking quest only stockpiles the anger by throwing in a Dreadqueen Rathian just for good measure.


Added DiffLines:

** Generations has the Sakura Method of charm farming which allows you to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8hgQuEi7Oo obtain nearly 15 charms]] per quest. In the Hub 6 quest "Coal Hearted", you need to deliver 10 pieces of coal at the Volcano, then deliver a Paw Pass Ticket. For whatever reason, delivering 12 coals one at a time instead of all at once tricks the game into thinking you've delivered the max amount the quest will allow, and reward you with a mountain of charms, alongside a number of ores and armor spheres to sell for zenny. Charm farming has never been so easy.

* ItsShortSoItSucks: One concern about ''Generations'', particularly [[AmericansHateTingle Western]] players who started with ''3 Ultimate'' or ''4 Ultimate'' (vanilla ''4'' is [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]]), is the lack of G-rank, since the two localized games before it included it.

** ''Generations'' not having G rank is an especially [[ItsShortSoItSucks sore point]] for Western hunters, who haven't had a game without G rank in a while (''tri'' in 2010; ''4'' is [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]]).

*** Is there enough content in the game?

to:

*** [[ItsShortSoItSucks Is there enough content in the game?game?]] This is [[AmericansHateTingle an especially sore point for Westerners]], as it's been a while since they last received a ''Monster Hunter'' game with no G rank (''tri''; vanilla ''4'' was [[NoExportForYou skipped over]]) and thus have likely gotten used to games having three rank tiers instead of two. Then there are those who point that there's so many different monsters -- more than ''4 Ultimate'', in fact -- and equipment pieces that the game can be forgiven for it.
