Does the Rathian and the Rathalos count as Bizarre Sexual Dimorphism?

They mate with each other, but they're both different species from their naming, and they look completely different in some games.

I'm pretty certain that Rathian and Rathalos are suppose to be the same species like how Great Jaggi/Jaggi/Jaggia are all one species.

Rathalos and Rathian aren't a case of Bizarre Sexual Dimorphism in that they're really not all that physically different. The naming conventions are a human thing and don't have to deal with their biology at all. Look at Rathalos and Rathian. They're not all that different aside from different colorations and slightly different scales and horns. That's regular sexual dimorphism. This trope would apply more if say, Rathalos had four limbs, no wings, and was twice as large as Rathian.

Does "Hot Skitty on Wailord Action" count as a trope with the Ludroths? I mean, it's more of extreme sexual dimorphism within ONE species rather than individuals of TWO species mating and having offspring.

I vote to remove it.

I don't wanna seem like a total noob to the series (Which I am) but I got a serious dose of What Measureisa Non Human or even Fantastic Racism with the treatment of the felynes.. they appear to be slaves, and if you see them in the wild you'd best attack them, or they'll steal from you.

The ones that steal from you are a different species called Melynxes (though, they are closely related to Felynes). And the Felynes that work for you... well the ones that work on the farm are called "hired help", so there's that.

And you pay the Felyne chef...

So I don't think Felynes get that much of a raw deal.

Obviously you've never crafted anything at the armory in Loc Lac (The multiplayer city in Tri). When you confirm the construction, the Master Artisan jets off screen, you hear him yelling, and what sounds like a whip cracking and pained and/or startled meows, then he runs back and calmly hands you your item. Sounds like slavery to me. I almost wanna cry every time I hear it, they're just so damn cute.

Also, I call a nomination to a Shout-Out entry to Pulp Fiction. There's a high-grade dish you can order from the chef/tavern called "Royale Cheese." That, and the Felyne chef in the village speaks in Gratuitous French, So Yeah.

Ive decided I'm never going to craft anywhere but in Moga.

Wait. Apparently the Felynes in his workshop apply for the job, and only a few are chosen.

And they're given luxurious houses that make the Hunters jealous.

Sounds less like slavery and more like something out of Hells Kitchen or something.

Felynes are presumably quite weak, so the sounds are probably just them straining heavily.

In Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, there's a rare chance, during a mission, to see a Felyne hunter. Yes, a Felyne hunter. With a greatsword that's size rivals yours. He generally tries to kill everything in the zone. Unfortunatly, that includes you. I'm guessing he's either angry at human hunters, or he mistakes you for a monster cause he's nearsighted.

Um, that'd not be a Felyne - that's a Chachaboo/Shakalaka King. He's got himself a big honkin' kinfe, that you can make as a poison weapon, and he hits like a mack truck. He also wears a barbecue spit for a crown...that spits fireballs all over the freakin' place.

How well does it match the trope?
