Add regional differences. Here is a page with all the game icons and some are unused https://www.reddit.com/user/Metbert/comments/k2300z/mhs_all_icons/
Monster Hunter Stories is a Monster Hunter RPG spin-off in which, unlike other Monster Hunter games, combat is more like rock-paper-scissors. It was followed by a 2021 sequel for the Switch, as well a spin-off (of a spin-off) called Monster Hunter Riders.
| Japan Exclusive Content|
Content that was never seen outside of Japan
Icons for unused monsters such as Seltas, Tetsucabra, Rhenoplos, Giaprey, Giadrome, Shogun Ceanataur, Plesioth, Green Plesioth, Furious Rajang and Duramboros can be found in the game's data.
Curiously, Plesioth and Green Plesioth materials can be obtained in the final game by fishing and Duramboros materials.
In the game data there are sprites of Versa Pietru and Makili Pietru with the purple filter used for infected monsters. Because versa pietru does not get infected at some point in his battle and makili pietru uses his sprite without the purple filter he leaves these sprites unused
There are placeholder icons with Japanese characters which would be translated like this = 環境 = environment 生態 = ecosystem 改造 = improvement/modification/augment 不安定 = unstable 未確定 = unverified 凶氣 = murderous intent/anger/rage/whatever
Unused Monster genes
Three of these unused monsters also have exclusive genes, which also go unused.
Plesioth Gene No-type/Water Attack Up +1 Water Resistance Up +2
Green Plesioth Gene No-type/Water Attack Up +3 Water Attack Up +3
Duramboros Gene Power/Water Defense Up -3 Water Attack Up +3
These Monsties normally go unused and can only be obtained through save editing.
Monster ID 49.
Black Ratha is normally a boss that appears before the final battle.
While listed here as a Monstie in the game's files, it was likely never intended to be used by the player as its stats are low and do not increase after leveling up.
Monster ID 47.
Ratha is technically the first Monstie you obtain, but due to events in the game's story you aren't normally able to ride or use it in battle until later in the story.
However, it's possible Ratha was originally intended to be recruited earlier. By using a cheat device or hacking, Baby Ratha can be added to your party. It can be ridden and has battle stats.
Monster ID 44.
A copy of Black Ratha.
One-eyed White Ratha
Monster ID 4A.
Uses Ratha's model.
Unused Monster IDs
These IDs have no Monstie data associated with them and will cause the game to crash if used.
Monster IDs: 4D, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 5A, 5B, 5C.
