* Hunters for Hire are known for occasionally [[EpicFail failing quests that, given the number of hunters you assign and their Hunter Ranks, your hired hunters have virtually no chance of failing.]] For example, there are Hunters for Hire that have failed a quest to hunt a [[WarmUpBoss Great]] [[https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16567705/tvtropes/you%20had%20one%20job.jpg Jaggi]], as well as a quest to '''[[https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16567705/tvtropes/one%20jooooooooooobbbbb.jpg deliver honey]]'''. You're only shown whether the hunting team cleared or failed the quest and their spoils, so [[NoodleIncident let your imagination run wild]].

* The recruitable Palicoes can end up with a hilarious combination of features. For example, the gatering ones claim to be pacifists to justify their lack of participation in fights, but can have Rath-of-Meow as their team attack. They can also have a name that comes off as highly inappropriate for their forte.

*** After you've gathered all of the meet, fish, and vegetables the Handler will comment she's heard there's an expert among the Fifth who's gathered a wide array of food. She can't wait to meet them.
** The Fiver Bro, who is has BigEater as his defining, effective, and only trait, is always too busy eating to fetch the ingredients the head chef asks him to get for the kitchen. And apparently nobody sees anything wrong with that.

* During AprilFoolsDay 2014, Capcom uploaded a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uii1KqWDdN0 "special" Event Quest]]. The mission: [[ItMakesSenseInContext revive an unconscious Congalala suffering either from indigestion or food poisoning before his digestive fumes kill an entire forest]]. The location: [[{{Squick}} a stench-saturated Daytime Jungle]]. The method: [[MagicalDefibrillator use any Thunder-element weapon]] and [[WorstAid hit him repeatedly]] until he wakes up. The reward: [[spoiler:''a measly Herb'']]. In summary: tons of solid ToiletHumor, Monster Hunter style. Just watch out for the poop bombs...

* In the games' gathering halls, when you sit down at the dining table you can perform a variety of table-exclusive gestures. All of them are amusing, but of note is the "drinking" gesture: if you do it enough times in one sitting, when you stand up, you find that ''[[RealityEnsues you've become piss drunk]]''.

* Tri gives us the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Di2uXm_Kaj0 Qurupeco's ecology]]. A Qurupeco tries to peacefully munch on some fish in a river, only for a Jaggi to snatch the fish away. The Qurupeco tries again, only to be intercepted by another Jaggi. Upon seeing a third Jaggi, the Qurupeco finally loses its temper and unleashes a roar, scaring the Jaggi away.

* Similar to the ''Truth Unmasked'' cinematic from ''3 Ultimate'', the post-credits cinematic for ''4U'' after repelling the Kushala Daora is a hilarious CallBack to the game's intro. [[spoiler: Remember [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDwk6tC7BPU those two guys from the intro]] who tried taking out a Tigrex and got interrupted by a Gore Magala?

After going on about how dreamy he is, she creates a quest for you to meet him and let him know her feelings. The quest? [[spoiler:[[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Hunt a Brachydios]].]]

** Even better, if you pay attention you'll see the villagers dancing in perfect coordination. Except in the first three villages there's always *one* person each screwing up the choreography, which given the armor sets and locales is implied to be [[spoiler: the [[ThisLoserIsYou Hunters]] from 1, 2, and Portable 3rd]]. It's just hilarious to see registered badasses like those being terrible at dance numbers despite literally everyone else in the village doing it perfectly.

* Subtle, but when a monster is trying to get you off a mount it will sometimes ram a wall with the section you're on, mostly back or head, to try and fling you off. If you dodge out of the way this will cause them to damage that part, and in some cases even cause them to break their own back or head.

They managed to [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome drive off the Eater of Elders]], and the hunter watches it flee with a smile on their face... and you can ''see' their face drop as they realize Lunastra's still [[RightBehindMe standing right there...]]

If the Plesioth successfully jumps into the water, [[spoiler:it grows into a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giant Plesioth]] whose stomp--which has [[HitboxDissonance a hitbox the size of the entire arena]]--causes a OneHitKill, and since the defeat limit is 1, '''QUEST FAILED.''']]
* In Frontier there are monsters that are more powerful than their standard forms, dubbed "Hardcore" monsters. These monsters are considerably more challenging than normal, with at least one exception. Hardcore Gendrome, distinguished by its massive crests, has an attack that launches a large paralysis bomb that covers a fairly large area. However, either due to lack of playtesting or simple poor programming, [[https://youtu.be/zozMcJVDCrk?t=35s Gendrome is always within the blast radius of the bomb]] and WILL paralyze itself. The example hunt given has it paralyze itself TWICE.

* The Fated Four monsters each have a cutscene shown during their respective rematch village quests showing off just how badass they are, being serious in nature for the most part...except for the Mizutsune's, which starts with ''Felynes'' going on a routine gathering run only to end up in an unwanted bubble bath and disturbing the monster's slumber and then scurrying away for their lives afterwards. The Mizutsune doesn't bother to chase them, it just ''goes back to sleep.''
