Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is just a couple of weeks away from an official release at the end of June, and as the launch draws nearer, there have been plenty of monsters confirmed for the new expansion. That list has grown even more with the Sunbreak Demo announcement and the trailer shown along with it.
Any time a Monster Hunter game gets a new expansion, there is always a ton of new content for players to experience. Locales and a new set of ranks are some of the most important for progression. But the most exciting part is always the monsters that you'll be able to hunt for the first time ever, along with old fan favorites making a return.
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak - All confirmed monsters
Before getting into the list of monsters that have been confirmed for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, it's important to note that the list is not complete. Many of the confirmations were either revealed in trailers or directly listed by Capcom in anticipation of all the new content.

- Everything announced at Xbox Bethesda Games Showcase 2022 - Starfield, Redfall, Diablo 4, more
- Infinity Ward job listing hints at new upcoming AAA open-world RPG
While the list is already fairly long, there will almost certainly be more monsters to hunt down when the full expansion arrives. This can include debuts we have no idea about, subspecies, or more returning icons that no one saw coming. Below you will find all the new additions to Monster Hunter Rise through Sunbreak.
Brand new Sunbreak monsters:
So far, these three monsters are the only brand new additions that have been confirmed. They are referred to as the Three Lords and will likely serve as the main antagonistic monsters in the new expansion. Malzeno is essentially a vampiric dragon with silver scales and Garangolm appears like an armored gorilla or a troll. Lunagaron is the third that looks like a frost-touched Odagaron.
New Subspecies of monsters:
- Aurora Somnacanth
- Magma Almudron
- Pyre Rakna-Kadaki
- Blood Orange Bishaten
Most expansions will come with new subspecies. These monsters already exist in the game, but subspecies will typically make them more difficult and give them a new element. That doesn't mean the base version will go away either. Instead, the overall monster count will simply go up.
Monsters returning in Sunbreak
- Daimyo Hermitaur
- Shogun Ceanataur
- Gore Magala
All of these monsters listed have amazing designs and some of them are fan favorites. But they have all appeared in previous titles. They may not be new additions to the franchise, but they are more than welcome within Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.
