Monster Hunter Tri is an anomaly, a freak of nature, an exception to the rules. If it were a monster, it'd be an amazingly rare kind of beastie that hides in the darkest, dankest spots of Bodmin Moor. One lonely winter night you're out walking your dog; you hear a strange noise, turn – and there it is. "OMFG!" you gurgle. "WTF is that?" Then it'd bite your head off, claw open your twitching belly, and turn your entrails into some kind of funky hat. Meow.
