>Meet Mr. Rathalos and Ms. Rathian – Monsters Hunted

May 26, 2011


Mr. Rathalos

Coffee Beans:
     I have been playing Monster Hunter Tri more regularly since April(this year).  It is one of the games on my backlogged list, and I am almost finished with the game’s single-player campaign now.
     While I have been slowly monster hunting my way through the single-player campaign, I recently hopped online a few nights and did some monster hunting with fellow monster hunters.
     Below are two monster hunt videos from Monster Hunter Tri.  One video is of a Rathalos hunt, and one is a video of a Rathian hunt.

Meet Mr. Rathalos:

A few spots you may not known, or noticed, what was happening in the Rathalos hunt video above:
     1)  Around the 2:00 mark Mr. Rathalos apparently attempted to dry me off, after my running around in the water…with FIRE!
     2)  At about 2:55 into the video, Mr. Rathalos loses his tail
     3)  Around the 4:00 mark, Mr. Rathalos gets taken out of the air with a flash bomb
     4)  About 6:00 into the video Mr. Rathalos swoops out of the air and pins fellow monster hunter Maxi to the ground, apparently wanting to devour him slowly instead of with one bite…so, I quickly switched to a dung bomb(yes, a dung bomb) and hit Mr. Rathalos with it, allowing Maxi to escape
     5)  Around the 7:35 mark, our hunt with Mr. Rathalos comes to a shocking end, when he is ensnared in a shock trap and quickly hit with tranquilizers putting him to sleep.

Meet Ms. Rathian:

Ms. Rathian

A few spots you may not have known, or noticed, what was happening in the Rathian hunt video above:
     1)  Around the 3:00 mark, Ms. Rathian loses her tail

     2)  Around the 4:30 mark, I get a warm welcome from Ms. Rathian
     3)  Around the 11:20 mark, you can see a replay with slow motion of the warm welcome I received from Ms. Rathian.

Filtered Thoughts:
     I still remember seeing a Rathian for the first time in the Monster Hunter 3 demo, and thinking “There’s no way I will beat that thing!”  Instead of thinking that about the Rathian now, I think that about other monsters in the game when I’m hunting them by myself sometimes; Rathalos being one of those now.
     In the Rathalos video above, I was playing with other monster hunters from and  In the Rathian video, I was playing with one of the guys from
     While these two videos above were of me hunting a male and female from one monster species in the game, I have been hunting a pretty wide variety of monsters, both online and in the single-player campaign.
     If any of you have any questions about anything that was happening in the videos above, feel free to leave it in the comments section below.
     Also, feel free to add my Monster Hunter Tri friend code to your list, if you are still playing the game online any.  My MHT friend code is:  KKJ9F2, and my in-game name you can look up is Coffee.

     Have any of you been playing Monster Hunter Tri lately?  If so, is there one particular monster you have been hunting more of recently, than others?
