PostSubject: Ecology of Monster Hunter   Tue Dec 27, 2011 6:25 pm

Delete this topic if one already exists, but I did not find any topics on the forum regarding to the ecology or lifestyles of the world of Monster Hunter. So, this topic is to discuss the ecology, biological adaptations, and relationships between monsters, and to try and connect everything as realistically as possible. Here we can discuss if certain subspecies are indeed seperate or just slightly different versions of the same animal, etc. We can also discuss the classification of monsters, such as where Fanged Wyvverns fit on family tree of wyvverns, etc.

So, enough me rembling on, lets discuss. I'm open for opinions, or if people have questions, go ahead.

Oh, and one last thing. Please, try to keep this topic serious. I don't mind jokes once in awhile, but lets try to keep this as a proper discussion thread.

I shall be explaining Kirin LE ZUNDER UNICORN also its origins and where it comes from historically
Also in this I am assuming the entire MH universe is one world and the different monsters from different games coexist somewhere in the games universe.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qilin

Read that page to fully understand what im talking about.

Ok so the above wikipedia page is Qilin A.K.A. what kirin was most likely based off. It is commonly called the chinese unicorn which is why they gave the Kirin the westernized unicorn aesthetic treatment. The Qilin was a sign of prosperity and was known for his mane of fire and scales(Note the scales) though Qilin looked more like that one fire dog spectrobe* than the actual Kirin. The fire mane translated over into Kirin's thunder mane and resulted in the kirin that you all know and love to beat the snot out of.

Now for its ecology and the scientific part of the Kirin. Now for I have classified Kirin as a Equites Lacerta (Latin for Lizard horse according to google translate) because of it has scales and claws yet is more an Equites in looks and nature. I personally think that Kirin is a mammal because it is more influenced by the western unicorn than the Eastern Qilin and the western unicorn is based off the horse so lets just assume it births live young. It's diet in my opinion would be a omnivore though they never told us in the games. As for its prey i can see it eating insects such as Vespoids and Bnahabra (Fried Neopteron anyone?) seeing as it has the ability to control lightning and probably uses the same lightning for self defense from larger predators.

Now for what would prey on Kirin there are several monsters i could imagine preying on kirin. The first would be Alatreon seeing as he can fly and probably reach high speeds allowing him to keep up with the kirin when he give chase also he himself uses electric attacks and gains resistance to it when he is flying therefore he could shrug off the barrages of electricity the kirin would throw at him. The second would be Amatsumagatsuchi because he too can fly and maneuver very fast making him a hard target for Kirin to hit with his electricity. Those are the only monsters i can see preying on Kirin and maybe Lagiacrus if it catches a kirin drinking it could take it down in the same manner an crocodile catches its prey. Now for Kirins control over electricity, Idk it dun make sense hur dur. just kidding but not really it is pretty damn nonsensical but i will do my best to explain. The most logical explanation for Kirin's power over electricity is that he is drawing on lightning and here is how. Electricity attracts electricity and so i imagine Kirin's horn to put out small stores of electricity found in electric sacs in his body he then can channel the electricity through his horn to shoot it at prey, the electricity he shoots is VERY minimal but can attract the electric charges in the ground (Thats how lightning works, some of the electricity is below us, or so I have heard) which causes it to strike whatever he damn well wants it to strike. He can also release the electricity through his hair in the air surrounding his body letting him Call in several lightning blots to strike randomly around him. Thats my theory on Kirin I hope you enjoyed it feel free to tell me im a retard if i got something wrong.

P.S. The part where I mentioned amatsu hunting Kirin. Someone should draw that ASAP.

P.P.S. It was midnight when i wrote this so I might seem random and crazy with the way it is written

Very interesting, I especially like your theory on how Kirin uses his powers, personally, I always thought it had to do with releasing charges around him, but if electricity is attracted to electricity, that actually makes more sense.

I personally see Kirin along the lines of a Mammal-like Reptile that evolved to a large extant, and I see him as being a distant relative of the reptilian herbivores like Aptonoth and Rehnoplos. He has a stiff tail, claws and scales, and ears have grown on reptiles in the MH universe (Rhenoplos, Rathalos, etc.)

As for the predator/prey thing, an omnivore isn't out of the question, but I don't see Kirin eating Neopterans. Carrion perhaps, but not neopterans. As for the predators, none of those live in the same environments as Kirin, though if we were to include predators from his habitats, I'd include Rajang (maybe?), Lavasioth, Nargacuga and Kushala Daora. Kirin is too small for predators like Amatsumaguschi and Alatreon, they'd settle on larger prey like Aptonoth or Rhenoplos.

Speaking of which, I even have a 'family tree' which categorises all the monsters up until the frontier update with Rukiodora. Granted, some of the classifications I'm willing to change and are not as accurate as my present day assumptions.

So... I hit the reply button about... Say 30 minutes ago now.

I had a reply I was going to put and usually I do not hesitate at times to put the first SA comment that comes to mind in some situations.. but for some strange reason, I actually thought about what I was going to put.. Then I thought about the second and the 3rd comment as well.... and ... you know what... Something happened.

I came to a revelation. I didn't want to joke or put a comment that was rethorical or anything like that.. In Fact for some reason I actually wanted to put a serious comment. I don't even know why... I couldn't help myaelf so I just started typing what is listed below:

Water grasses and moss. They feed mainly on weeds, water grasses, and algae but can be fooled easily by Gobul's plant disguise, as that they spend most of their time grazing, leading it to be swallowed in a flash.

They are herbivores and you can often observe them in game eating....

Yup, that's pretty much why I love monster hunter so much, because of how realistic all the environments are and how everything fits together. For instance, a friend and I theorised that the old civilization on Moga Island (if you've played Monster Hunter Tri and know the storyline, you'll know what I'm talking about) was actually destroyed by a Guran Miraosu, as most of the vegetation near the coast of the island is small (lack of forests close to the ruins). There is also the large presence of grey rock, which greatly resembles the type of rock you see after a volcanic explosion, after the magma cools and hardens. Plus all the destroyed cities and how the civilization was so close to the ocean means that Guran Miraosu would have had easy access to the city, there are even signs of an old, destroyed dragonator underwater in area 10 (you have to look at the sea bed while facing dry land, you might see a sort of hole or archway which might have been a dragonator to fight off dragons, like the one you use against Lao Shan and Shen Gaoren).

Whew, well there is another theory I've come up with, I've got a bunch more like these, though most involve just the animals rather than the environment.

Well that's because the water levels rose since the time the city was active, and the fact it is underwater means it was easily accesible to Guran Miraosu, since we know Guran can swim and live in the water.

While we all have a clear understanding of most the elements in Monster Hunter, I once wondered what exactly was Dragon Element. I got my answer.

A) Dragon is electromagnetism since it can inflict paralysis which would make sense if it's sticking to the metal parts of your armor.

B) Dragon is radioactive plasma which would explain its high energy output and advantage over virtually every monster type out there.

How dragons can accomplish this is unknown.
