The Monster Hunter universe (モンスターハンター, Monster Hunter) is a series of fantasy-themed action role-playing video games developed and published by Capcom that started with the game Monster Hunter for PlayStation 2, released in 2004.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

The Monster Hunter universe made its debut in Super Smash Bros. 4, with Mii Costumes inspired by Rathalos and Monster Hunter.

Mii Costumes[edit]

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.



In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

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.

Boss and Assist Trophy[edit]

World of Light Sub-World[edit]

  • Forest Hill
    Forest Hill: Based on the Forest and Hills area from the original Monster Hunter, Forest Hill appears as sub-world in The Light Realm. Rathalos appears as a boss, but cannot be fought initally. Rathalos will fly away once the player gets too close, requiring the player to corner him at the plateau in order to fight him. Toon Link can be unlocked here.

Mii Costumes[edit]

The Hunter and Rathalos costumes from Smash 4 return as downloadable content, in addition to a new hat based on the character, Felyne. They were released alongside Pyra and Mythra.




Source Tracks[edit]


Rathalos also appears as a spirit. Even more Monster Hunter spirits from Monster Hunter Rise were included for the MONSTER HUNTER RISE spirit event. A spirit from Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin featuring the protagonist mounted on a flightless Rathalos (dubbed "Razewing Ratha") will be rewarded to players who have save data of the game. It was made available for all users on October 18th, 2021.
