The following page of the guide to Monster Hunter Rise describes endemic life. You will find out how the creatures are divided into groups, which of them will be useful in battle (hunting helpers), and which will provide permanent reinforcements (permabuffers).
Endemic life forms are small creatures that can help you in various ways to fight monsters. Some increase the Hunter's stats, while others can weaken or even immobilize opponents.
A list of creatures from the endemic life can be found in the Hunter's notes. After a thorough search of the hunting area, all found animals will be marked on the map.
Permabuffers increase the Hunter's stats to complete the hunt and return to the village. To receive a bonus, you need to get closer to the creatures.
- Yellow Spiribirds - increase endurance;
- Green Spiribirds - increase health;
- Orange Spiribirds - increase defense;
- Red Spiribirds - increase attack;
- Prism Spiritbirds- increase all stats.
Properly selected Petalace strengthens the action of Spiribirds, you can read more about this on a separate page of the guide: Petalace.
Support creatures are the life forms you'll find when you hunt. These animals are kept in special cages. You can use them as items during the battle.
A hunter can carry a maximum of 5 support creatures while hunting. If you want to free the cage, you can release the animal in it.
Support creatures include:
- Poisontoad - releases a cloud of gas that will poison anyone who enters it;
- Blastoad - releases a cloud of gas that causes temporary paralysis to anyone who enters it;

- Paratoad - releases a cloud of gas that explodes when it comes into contact with a monster or Hunter;
- Firebeetle - ignites a monster, which for a short time receives Fireblight damage;
- Mudbeetle - infects the monster with Waterblight, which softens the Beast's skin, making it more vulnerable to Hunter attacks;
- Thunderbeetle - infects the monster with Thunderblight. A beast infected with this plague is more likely to be stunned by any weapon;
- Snowbeetle - infects the monster with Iceblight, which slows it down. It is recommended to use snowbeetle especially on very fast opponents;

- Gustcrab - a fungus on its shell will unleash a gust of wind that will blow anyone nearby into the air. You can also use this creature if you want to get to higher hunting grounds;
- Aurortle - protects the hunter from 1 fatal blow.
