Two Monster Hunter armor sets are the basis for paid downloadable content costumes for Mii Swordfighters. The armor sets used are the Hunter's Blademaster Armor while wielding the Hunter's Knife sword and shield set, and the Rathalos Blademaster Armor while wielding the Blazing Falchion sword and shield set.
Monster Hunter has received greater representation in Ultimate. The Mii Costumes from Smash 4 return, in addition to a new Mii hat via downloadable content. Rathalos appears as a boss, Assist Trophy, and a spirit. The universe also received two source tracks, as well as multiple spirits post-release, making it one of the bigger secondary universes in Ultimate.
