Khezu – A long neck, almost worm-like monster with plenty of teeth. Lives in dark places such as caves and has electric abilities.

Great Baggi – Kind of looks a cross between a bird and a dinosaur, can douse hunters in a liquid with a sleep effect.

Mangnamalo – The flagship monster of MHR. Can fling a purple gas which ignites and has a sharp coat of armor.
