Endemic Life in Monster Hunter Rise (MHR or MHRise) are creatures that live in different areas, when they are found, they grant a variety of boons to hunters. These creatures can be captured by hunters and they come in a variety of sizes and species. This page covers a list of all the Endemic Life in Monster Hunter Rise.

In Monster Hunter Rise, some Endemic Life species work hand-in-hand with certain equipment, such as the Spiribird. The pollen that is released by the Spiribird attaches to a piece of new equipment called The Petalace, this envelops the hunter in a sweet, energizing fragrance that grants a permanent status boost until the end of the quest.

Some endemic life can be captured and placed inside your Helper Cage. Hunters can hold up to 5 Hunting Helpers from where you'll be able to use them as items until the end of the quest. Others grant temporary boons that can be applied to a single hunter or a team, while others work as environmental hazards that can cause damage to both hunters and monsters.

 

 

 

Monster Hunter Rise Endemic Life

The Hunter's Notes classifies Endemic Life into 7 categories based on how the hunter interacts with them:

  • Permabuffers are Endemic Life that provide hunters with a permanent buff that lasts until the end of a hunt. 
  • Temp Buffers are Endemic Life that provide hunters with a temporary buff such as increased attack or decreased stamina consumption that only lasts a certain amount of time.
  • Hunting Helpers are special Endemic Life that hunters can carry around in their Helper Cage and deploy for various special effects that may aid them in battle. 
  • Ensnaring Life are Endemic Life that can be triggered by the hunter in order to damage or trap a monster that happens to be nearby. 
  • Crafty Creatures are Endemic Life that give the hunter materials that can be used for crafting.
  • Rare Creatures are Endemic Life life that are unique to each zone, and are rarely ever seen. A photograph has to be taken of them to unlock the information in the Hunter's Notes.
  • Other Endemic Life are Endemic Life that don't fit into any of the previous categories, putting them in a category all their own.
