There are a whopping 27 new big monsters to meet as you play through Monster Hunter World Iceborne. They’ll pop up as you progress through the game, with plenty arriving as exciting surprises along the way. If you’d like to avoid any spoilers, we recommend you stop reading now. Otherwise, keep going for a complete list of all new monsters in Monster Hunter World Iceborne!

Within the 27 monsters Iceborne introduces, roughly half are variants of the Monsters found in the main game. Apart from a color swap they won’t look too different or move all that unusually, but they do come with new attacks and weaknesses. The rest are a mix of monsters from older Monter Hunter titles or ones entirely new to Iceborne.
