Updated on January 4, 2019

Poppy lives in Enoshima and likes to read novels and play video games, especially open-world RPGs.

Monster Hunter: World is the latest in the highly popular, action role-playing video game series, Monster Hunter, by Capcom. You can team up with players from across the globe to battle ferocious beasts, forge weapons and armour, and become a first-class Hunter.

It is a tremendously fun game that has claimed hundreds of hours from many players, forged many great friendships, and challenged those who are determined to unlock its many secrets.


The game mostly involves exploring new areas, collecting materials, crafting items to protect yourself and make yourself stronger, and hunting and capturing monsters.

Each beast that appears in Monster Hunter: World has different weaknesses and breakable parts, meaning that each new encounter is a brand new challenge, requiring different weapons, armour, and elemental resistances. The game includes monsters that are awesome, cool, ugly - and sometimes highly annoying!

Here are my top five most annoying monsters from this terrific game and why they are so irritating.

5. Kirin

The Kirin is a Thunder-elemental Elder Dragon monster that you encounter in the Coral Highlands. It seems to represent the legendary creature that you can also find on cans of Japanese Kirin beer.

This monster drove me nuts when I first fought it! Its lightning attacks are devastating even if you have a high Thunder resistance, and it moves so quickly that it is difficult to land a strong attack on it. There was a lot of cursing while fighting this guy and it was incredibly satisfying when I finally beat it.


4. Kulu-Ya-Ku

The Kulu-Ya-Ku is just so stupid looking. It is one of the first monsters you encounter in the game, so it isn't difficult to beat. It bobs around in its half-bird, half-raptor sort of way, feathers sticking up, often getting in the way when you're fighting other, better monsters. Just everything about this dorky-looking, Jar-Jar Binks-esque, egg-eating looking chicken bugs me.


3. Lavasioth

This monster is irritating beyond belief. As if being a quicker and more deadly version of the (relatively easy) Jyratodus wasn't bad enough, this thing also swims in fire and shoots dangerous fireballs at you, even if you're pretty far away.

It freaks out as soon as you get anywhere near it and flails all over the place, flattening or burning you to death if you don't skedaddle. I can't be the only one who tells it to get lost every time I encounter it.


2. Tzitzi-Ya-Ku

The Tzitzi-Ya-Ku is the Kulu-Ya-Ku's flashy cousin. It isn't even strong enough to be respectable; it is easily the weakest monster in the Coral Highlands and has the same arrogant strut as the chicken-looking thing from the beginner areas.

The Tzitzi-Ya-Ku's stun attack is the reason I hate this guy. He can use his big obnoxious (ears? Fins?) to momentarily stun you and your Palico unless you quickly get behind him (which isn't always possible). Trust me, after you've been stunned a time or seven, you'll quickly hate this ugly creature, too.


1. Deviljho

I swear I've heard the entire Monster Hunter: World community groan "oh, go away" when this dude shows up.

After a certain point in the game, Deviljho just starts appearing, even before you're supposed to actually fight him. He is an incredibly powerful, armoured-looking T-rex, sort of like the Anjanath except significantly stronger. The irritating (and terrifying) thing about Deviljho is that he loves violence. Whenever you are battling a monster, there is a good chance the ol' Devil will drop by for a turf war or simply just to try and beat you up.

I can't tell you how many Dung Pods I've slung at this guy. I just want to slay a Pukei-Pukei without it sticking its fat nose in.


Monster Hunter: World is a truly great game and it wouldn't be complete without some insanely annoying monsters in it! Making these creatures irritating just makes it all the more satisfying when you finally defeat them. I am continuing to enjoy this Capcom masterpiece, even if I sometimes end up yelling at the TV while doing so.

      Nice idea. There are people out there way more knowledgeable than me who could do it! Thank you always for your kindness.

      I think a great package would be the game plus a book with all your tips.

      Another informative article. I think you could write a book on the subject.
