Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Monsters, Carves and Item Drops Guide

Popo

This odd looking furry creature with huge horns has amazing elemental resistance, so it’s best to try and take it down with cuts, impacts, and bullets.

You can carve the body of the monster twice. Here is what you’ll get:

Low Rank: Popo Tongue 45%) Raw Meat 30%) Bone 20%) Jumbo Bone 5%)

High Rank: Popo Tongue 45%) Raw Meat 25%) Jumbo Bone 20%) Bone 8%) Stoutbone 2%)

G-Rank: Popo Tongue 35%) Raw Meat 25%) Prized Pelt 20%) Stoutbone 20%)

Rhenoplos

These Rhino-styled creatures have a very hard head, and thus you’ll want to target their bodies instead. Their rock-like rostral region can absorb high amounts of damage, but their bodies take reasonable hits from bullets and impacts.

You can carve the body of the Rhenoplos twice. Here is what you’ll get:

Low Rank: Rhenoplos Shell 35%) Raw Meat 35%) Monster Bone M 20%) Rhenoplos Scalp 10%)

High Rank: Rheno Carapace 35%) Raw Meat 20%) Rhenoplos Shell 15%) Rhenoplos Scalp 15%) Monster Bone M 15%)

G-Rank: Rhenoplos Bone 50%) Rheno Carapace 30%) Raw Meat 20%)

Slagtoth

These green bulky rhino-like creatures heave a good defense rating, no matter where you’re hitting them. The best option is cuts and bullets.

You can acquire the following from body carving (twice) the Slagtoth:

High Rank: Slagtoth Oil 40%) Slagtoth Hide+ 40%) Raw Meat 15%) Monster Bone+ 5%)

G-Rank: Slagtoth Hide+ 35%) Rhenoplos Bone 30%) Slagtoth Oil 20%) Raw Meat 15%)

Uroktor

The Uroktor is a fiery lizard-like creatue with two front limbs. It has immunity to fire damage, and very high resistance to other elemental damages. The best options are cuts and impacts.

You can obtain the following from body carving a Uroktor:

Low Rank: Uroktor Scale 60%) Monster Bone M 30%) Dragonfell Berry 10%)

High Rank: Uroktor Scale+ 55%) Monster Bone M 20%) Dragonfell Berry 15%) Uroktor Scale 10%)

G-Rank: Supple Piel 60%) Uroktor Scale+ 30%) Dragonfell Berry 10%)

Wroggi

These raptor-like creatures take a fair amount of damage from impacts, cuts, and bullets. Here is what you’d get from them from body carving:

Low Rank: Wroggi Fang 40%) Wroggi Hide 29%) Wroggi Scale 23%) Monster Bone S 8%)

High Rank: Wroggi Fang 38%) Wroggi Scale+ 35%) Avian Finebone 20%) Wroggi Hide 7%)

G-Rank: Avian Stoutbone 42%) Wroggi Scale+ 30%) Wroggi Fang 28%)

Now to the Large Monsters:

Large monsters in the game are a lot tougher. The body carving and item gaining system associated with them is also quite different. Firstly, many of them have breakable parts, such as front limbs or tails. These individual parts can be carved as well to get items, depending on the monster. You also obtain valuable items from them after capturing.

In addition to items, Large monsters behave differently as well. They will tend to enter an ‘aggressive’ mode, which will raise their attack, speed, and/or defense for specific kinds of attacks.

Another important thing to remember is that most Large Monsters actually come in three sizes: small, big, and king. The King are obviously the meanest of the set.

Arzuros

The bear styled Arzuros has amazing resistance to elemental damage. You will want to target its upper body, as that is the weakest point under all circumstances. The best method is to get some bullet damage there, though the defense will obviously increase when it is enraged.

You’ll probably find these creatures in the Desert Island and the Misty Peaks.

  • You can body carve them 3 times in total. Here is what you’ll get:

Low Rank: Arzuros Pelt 65%) Arzuros Shell 25%)

Glacial Agnaktor

The Glacial Agnaktor is the same thing as the standard one, except that it’s just all ice, and hence a tad bit meaner. The creature has immunity to water and ice elementals, taking the best damage from impacts on the head. Note that you won’t encounter the beast on Low Rank.

      Just lol at the great jaggi description, that’s the easiest large monster in the game.. Like, almost no strategy needed really, just avoid its side ram attack and don’t worry about anything else it does, just hit it constantly til it dies.
