Monster Hunter Rise is finally here, which means that it’s time for millions of fans old and new to try to hunter every monster in the game and turn them into some of the swankiest (and weirdest) armor and weapons you’ll ever see.

If you’re new to Monster Hunter and Rise is your first time exploring this series, then you’ll likely be blown away by both the creative design of the game’s monsters and the sheer number of them spread throughout the title’s sizeable world. While Rise doesn’t feature nearly as many monsters as some of the franchise’s older handheld installments, we doubt that even longtime veterans will find a lot to complain about once you see the quality of Rise‘s new monsters and how well they work alongside some of the series’ returning favorites.

If you’re looking to see (and hunt) them all, then here’s a rundown of every monster that’s been found in Monster Hunter Rise so far.

How Many Monsters Are In Monster Hunter Rise?

As far as we can tell based on the information available so far, there are 61 monsters in Monster Hunter Rise. While it’s possible there is another monster or two hiding in the game (and that the total number of monsters will be expanded by DLC/expansions), that seems to be the final number of monsters Capcom intended to include in Rise‘s retail release.

How does that compare to previous Monster Hunter games? Pretty favorably, actually. Monster Hunter World launched with 54 monsters, so it’s already larger than its most immediate predecessor in that effect. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne bumped that number up to 94, but again, it’s pretty common for those kinds of expansions to bump the total number of monsters up a bit, so you should expect Rise to benefit from similar treatment at some point.

How Many Returning Monsters Are in Monster Hunter Rise?

Of Monster Hunter Rise‘s 61 monsters, 47 were previously seen in an older Monster Hunter game. Here’s how the returning monsters break down by generations:

1st Generation Monsters – Basarios, Bullfango, Diablos, Felyne, Kelbi, Khezu, Melynx, Rathalos, Rathian

2nd Generation Monsters – Anteka, Chameleos, Popo, Nargacuga, Tigrex, Rajang, Remobra
