HC Monsters (Japanese 特異個体) are unique, powerful monster individuals that are different from their usual counterparts. Compared to normal monsters, HC Monsters are known for having a slightly different appearance and new abilities that set them apart from regular individuals. HC Monsters are also noticeably stronger than normal monsters, making them fearsome foes for hunters.
