** A contention that arose with ''Generations'' is the rise of the [[StopHavingFunGuys "Meta Only"]] attitude among a portion of the fans.

** Did the series get [[ItsEasySoItSucks way too easy]] beginning in the 3rd generation, or was it made more enjoyable by removing some of the FakeDifficulty?[[note]]Much of this argument revolves around the game's CompetitiveBalance, and can refer to any number of things including weapon mechanics, damage calculation and monster behavior; see the Competitive Balance-related entry below.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

** Deviant gear has caused the rise of a staggeringly popular setup. That is the Dreadking armor with any Hellblade weapon. While nothing fancy this gives you a 200 damage, positive affinity, ''white sharp'', '''blast element''' weapon(!) along with a powerful armor that gives immunity to roars/winds, increased affinity on weak points, ''and'' attack up large. In terms of pure, brutal efficiency few setups can compare and the more people are using it the more deadly the blast weapons become.

Added DiffLines:

** The Wii U port of ''3 Ultimate'' is better received in the West than in Japan, as Japanese fans primarily see the series as better suited for handhelds and console gaming is generally more popular overseas. Helping matters for Western fans is that it has online multiplayer unlike the 3DS version, and due to the series' lack of popularity in the West it's just more convenient to hop online to find hunting buddies than to try to meet up with fellow hunters around one's local area.

** NIBELSNARF[[labelnote:Explanation]]Nibelsnarf's name is infamous among the fanbase due to how [[{{Narm}} comical and nonthreatening it sounds]], especially concerning [[FluffyTheTerrible the nature of the monster]]. Some fans and even [[TheWikiRule The wiki]] have used it as a written SoundEffectBleep for [[ClusterFBomb obscene posts]] due to its notoriety.[[/labelnote]]

** Glavenus can go from really difficult, to really tedious if you want to cut off its tail. Unlike most monsters, its tail can only be cut off if it's glowing. Not only is this the point where its tail attacks are at their most dangerous, actually getting to this state can be very time consuming. First, its tail needs to be in its sharp state. Then it needs to perform its SwordDrag move enough times for the tail to become heated. If Glavenus doesn't do it fast enough, its tail will become rusted instead, meaning you'll have to wait for it to start over. If the RandomNumberGod isn't on your side, the game's AIRoulette will force you to wait several minutes before its tail becomes hot enough to cut. Once its tail does become heated, you only have a couple minutes before the tail becomes rusted, requiring you to wait through the process again.
** Farming feelers from a Gore Magala is much easier if you break them; problem is that this requires getting it to enter its frenzied form so its feelers are up. Unless you save up some weaker weapons, this can be chore as you'll often find yourself possibly killing it before it ever gets to that state.

*** The English names of the four ''Generations'' flagships are causing a break in the fanbase, especially Glavenus. Some enjoy the difference in name after the similarities between 4U's English and Japanese monster names (Tetsucabra / Tetsucabura and Kecha Wacha / Kechawacha) while others think Glavenus sounds like a bad portmanteau pun of glaive and a certain rear body part and that Gammoth sounds like an incredibly lame pun.

** Following up on the above; really, any monster for whom breaking and getting parts requires getting a monster to a certain state. For example farming feelers from a Gore Magala is much easier if you break them; problem is that this requires getting it to enter its frenzied form so its feelers are up. Unless you save up some weaker weapons, this can be chore as you'll often find yourself possibly killing it before it ever gets to that state.
