This article is about the Capcom franchise. You may be looking for Hunting Quest, a series of Extra Ops missions in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker based on the aforementioned game franchise.

Monster Hunter is a series of fantasy-themed action role-playing games developed and published by Capcom that started with the game Monster Hunter for PlayStation 2. As the title suggests, it involves hunting various monsters and other fantasy creatures. Aside from games, it also spawned several anime, manga, and card game series.

Relation to the Metal Gear series

As part of a promotion for Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, Kojima Productions teamed up with Capcom to include several crossover references between their franchises. For Kojima Productions, their game Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker included a series of Extra Ops missions called Hunting Quests, which also had the same name as Monster Hunter in some cases. In addition, the mainstays Velocipreys, Tigrex and Rathalos, alongside the Felynes and Trenya appeared as enemies and allies, respectively. One of the locations in the game, Isla del Monstruo, was also a reference to the Monster Hunter franchise. When Trenya is first encountered, he also briefly alludes to Pokke Farm.[1]
