A New game is out! It’s called “Monster Hunter World”. Hunters catch big dinosaur-like monsters in the jungle. I love this spectacular atmosphere.
However, creating a new character is always WORK! Then I already got a kanji question from a player who is working on his character! Thank you very much.
What is this symbol of the Tattoo Makeup for “Monster Hunter World”?
Thank you for the question and the photos!
The Meaning of the Kanji Tattoo for “Monster Hunter World”
You can see that Chinese-like or Japanese-like kanji symbol face tattoo in the “Makeup” section when you create your character.
I think they designed this tattoo based on the kanji “竜”. Anyway, this is the closest one. In this tattoo, bottom part looks like “用”, but such a Japanese kanji doesn’t exist, so I’m pretty sure that the answer is “竜”.
The Japanese kanji “竜” means “Dragon”. It fits the game too, right?
Actually, the kanji “竜” is the easier version of the kanji “龍”. And the image of a Japanese Dragon is very different from the ones depicted in American Fantasy. It’s spiritual and known as a god of water.
So, usually, in Japan we use this different kanji “竜” for the fire breathing “regular” dragons.
Today’s Kanji Shirt is “Dragon”! That is original kanji for “竜”! Hunt them! Hunt them all!
I couldn’t receive the question email from firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m sorry but please modify the email to simple text only and resend it if you notice this message!

If you want to know the meanings of any Japanese kanji that you don’t see English subs for in a particular animation or live action movie, tell me “Name of the Show”, “Season and Episode #” and “the Exact Moment (Minute: Second)”!
If it’s just Japanese kanji that you see around you, like a shop sign or a tattoo, you can send me the photo as long as you are allowed to take picture of it.
I can’t promise to reply to everyone but I’ll try my best!
