Monster Hunter Director Confirms Palicoes, Meowscular Chef Are in the Movie 2

Not every monster in the Monster Hunter movie will be some terrifying grotesque. Indeed, some of them will be actually cute, Monster Hunter director Paul W.S. Anderson confirmed Saturday at New York Comic Con. (Be sure to check out the full New York Comic Con schedule of panels for more details.)Anderson confirmed that his Monster Hunter movie will include both Palicoes (the field companions of the hunters in Monster Hunter World) as well as the brawny Felyne called Meowscular Chef, a character Anderson had previously evaded confirming would be in his film. “Well, you couldn’t make a Monster Hunter movie without having a Palico in it. So definitely we lean into the Palico,” the director said.

In the lore established by Monster Hunter World, the Chef was at one point the Palico partner of the Admiral, played in the movie by Hellboy’s Ron Perlman. Anderson revealed Meowscular Chef is rather taken with Milla Jovovich’s human protagonist, Captain Artemis.

“We have one of the characters, Meowscular Chef, who’s the Admiral’s sidekick, who’s a fantastic character, who has this rather flirtatious relationship with Milla, which is really interesting,” Anderson revealed, hinting at some levity in the film that’s not readily apparent from the more horror-centric teasers released so far.

But lest you think Monster Hunter is poised to be a cutesy comedy a la Pokémon Detective Pikachu, fear not. Anderson geeked out over the franchise’s scariest creatures he got to showcase in his movie.“I love the Rathalos, because the Rathalos is pretty much the rock star of the Monster Hunter video games,” Anderson said. “It’s been in nearly all of the games. It’s probably one of the hardest creatures to kill. It’s just badass. So I’m very excited that that’s in our movie.”

The Internet exploded when the first Monster Hunter trailer tease — which debuted exclusively here at IGN — revealed the movie’s Diablos. For Anderson, though, he’s especially fond of the Black Diablos: “I love the Black Diablos. The Diablos is a creature that I just like, but the Black Diablos is particularly nasty because that’s a female Diablos that’s in heat. So it’s just very angry and very territorial.”
