Bipedal creatures resembling cats, known for their light hair. Though usually docile, they will attack viciously if provoked. Naturally curious, some try to enter human society, and are often hired by the Guild to cook for and otherwise assist hunters.

Felynes are Lynians introduced in Monster Hunter.

Physiology

Felynes resemble bipedal cats and are capable of human language. They typically have light fur, but can come in a variety of colors and patterns.

Abilities

Felynes perform a small variety of jobs in villages, from shopkeeping to farm maintenance, but most notably they may work under a hunter as Felyne Chefs or Felyne Comrades. Felyne Chefs cook food for their hunters to support them in their adventures by temporarily bestowing them with beneficial status effects, while Felyne Comrades assist their hunters on quests by using various skills and attacks. They also supply an additional reward at the end of a quest.

Notes

General Notes

  • Felynes have made cameo appearances in other unrelated games.
  • Felynes will attack the hunter if a Melynx is attacked. All the Felynes in the area will join the attack.
  • If hit by a Felvine Bomb, Felynes will sit on the ground with pink stricks on its face and pink bubbles will appear over its head.

Monster Hunter 3

  • Felyne will follow and 'dance' to your character if you have your torch out.
  • Felynes will occasionally sit down. They do this more often in the Area 4 base on the Deserted Island.

Monster Hunter Stories

  • In the monsterpedia, the Felynes that can be fought are called "Barrel Felyne" (Japanese: タルアイルー), the high rank ones with "Great Barrel Felyne" due to the fact that they are trapped inside a barrel.
