** "GAINS" [[labelnote: Explanation]]The Meowscular Chef who runs the canteen in Astera in World is obsessed with this. Both in terms of bulking up the canteen, and the hunter.[[/labelnote]]

** Did the [=USAF=] just order a bombing run on your High Rank hunt? Nope, just Bazelgeuse.

** The Rotten Vale, especially for ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' veterans as it may remind them of the equally nauseating Blighttown.

* TakeThatScrappy: The Plesioth, notorious for its [[HitboxDissonance broken-hitbox]] [[ThatOneAttack hip check]], has been reduced to part of a net fishing minigame in ''4'', and ''it even dies without a fight upon being landed on the wharf''.

** The Rotten Vale level in ''World'' is made up of the remains of [[ThatOneBoss Dalamadur]].

Added DiffLines:

** The Nergigante and Vaal Hazak armor are extremely powerful for melee hunters due to their built in healing abilities. Wearing either set completely neutralizes all, but the strongest attacks and allows the hunter to play extremely aggressively.

** In ''Freedom Unite'', the first G Rank quest is against a pair of [[WarmUpBoss Hypnocatrice]]. It's a nice breather after [[HoldTheLine Shen Gaoren]] and [[DamageSpongeBoss Agnaktor]].

** Both of the Zorah Magdaros fights in ''World'' are this; the first time, you just fought your first Anjanath (who is your introduction to truly dangerous big critters and a major wall for new players) and the second time, you're hot off of fighting Rathalos and Diablos, the two biggest threats in low rank. Zorah, meanwhile, involves shooting him with some cannons, running around breaking rocks on his back, and having a few token exhibition fights with Nergi. The first one is ''completely'' scripted, and even the second is hard to lose so long as you have a pulse.

* AnticlimaxBoss:AnticlimaxBoss: In general, ''[=MonHun=]'' has historically had a bit of trouble with this trope. To wit:


Added DiffLines:

** The mystery final boss of World, [[spoiler:Xeno'jiiva]], also is this for a lot of hunters, but that's more because anyone who gets to it had to be [[ThatOneBoss forged in the fires of Negigante and Teostra]] first. Compared to the other late-game monsters, Mystery Monster is enormous, but if anything this makes it easier to get around and to hit (''especially'' for Insect Glaive users, who can use the boss to stay airborne ''forever'') and it's rather bad about using its bulk to try and punish you outside of a few very heavily telegraphed attacks, usually preferring to try and use FrickinLaserBeams instead (which are not too difficult to dodge). Having no elemental weakness but conversely no elemental ''resistance'' also doesn't help, along with having very large and easy-to-hit weak spots. It does have a ton of HP, but once you quickly learn what few attacks you need to be careful about, that just serves to drag the fight out more than anything. [[spoiler:There might be some story justification for this, given that it's an ''infant'', but even so.]]

* VindicatedByHistory: A concept for an undead, two-headed Elder Dragon called the Crypt Hydra was initially planned to be in the first game, but the idea became scrapped after receiving poor reception from Japanese fans, who felt that a supernatural monster had no place in a semi-realistic game. However, many of these fans have retracted their previous beliefs about the monster after the second generation introduced fan-favourite Elder Dragons such as Kushula Daora who fit said bill, and continue to lament its removal to this day.

Nakarkos seems to be a rework of the concept, though some fans still would like the original undead creature to be included in a later title.

* NewbieBoom: The pitch for ''World'' as a big AAA title for the Xbox One, [=PS4=], and PC seemed to work for Capcom, as following its reveal trailer at [=E3=], there was a sudden spike in Western interest in the franchise, many of whom had never heard of ''Monster Hunter'' prior and were intrigued by the trailer for ''World''.

Within a week of its release, it sold ''6 million copies'', which is more than the lifetime sales of any prior release in the series except for ''4'' and ''Generations''. [[note]]''4'' sold 8.3 million and ''Generations'' sold 6.45 million, counting their original and UpdatedRerelease versions together.[[/note]]

** Aptonoths, mostly due to being [[ButtMonkey at the absolute bottom of the setting's food chain]]. Other herbivores will either fight back to an obnoxious degree (Even unprevoked!) or are quite swift. The worst an Aptonoth will do is give you ''one'' weak, ineffectual headbutt, and only if you're a hunter attacking [[PapaWolf their]] [[MamaBear family]], they won't even bother doing anything but flee if a large monster is attacking them. One wonders if, given enough of a shortage of edible plant life, the other herbivores in the setting wouldn't just switch to eating Aptonoths in order to survive.
