How To Get Gold Crowns
|Step 1||Decide on which quest to play to spawn the crowns|
|Step 2||Go on a quest and fight the monster|
You can also check out the sizes of the other monsters in the map
|Step 3||After determining its size, defeat the monster|
▼How To Measure Monsters
|Step 4||Replay the quest and compare the sizes:|
・If the size is nearer to your goal, defeat the monster
・If the size is not what you're looking for, abandon the quest
Replay High Rank Quests
The longest and the shortest monsters are likely to spawn in high rank quests rather than low rank ones. However, this doesn't mean that any high rank quest is okay. Every quest has a slightly different chance of spawning the shortest or longest monster so play specific ones to increase your chances. Rampage monsters do not count so there's no meaning in farming them there.
Check Out Other Monsters
For normal quests, there are always 3 monsters in the field. Take your time and check the other monsters' sizes so you can also get other crowns while you're in the field.
Return From Quest Resets Spawns
Even if you don't clear a quest, defeating monsters records their sizes. If you have quests that require you to hunt down multiple monsters, you can simply defeat your target first then choose "Return From Quest" to save time. However, do not choose to "Abandon Quest" as it will erase your record so make sure to choose "Return From Quest".
Spawns During Expedition Tours
It is also possible for crown monsters to spawn during expedition quests. Try to defeat them if you see them during these quests. Note that monsters during expedition tours leave the map faster than usual so hunt them down before they escape.
Measure The Monsters
When hunting for longest and shortest monsters, defeating each one that you encounter can be inefficient. Find a monster and use its body parts to compare it to your hunter. With that, you have a standard to measure your targets. Use this standard to measure other similar monsters you encounter to determine their size then hunt them down if they fit your target.
How To Measure Monsters
|①||Use a monster's body part and compare it to others. This is your point of reference|
Example 1: Compare the location of a monster's knee to your hunter's height
Example 2: Use map features to compare monster sizes
|②||Hunt 1 monster for a baseline size|
You can use this to calculate the difference that you need for the crown monsters
▼Largest & Smallest Monster Sizes
|③||Once you have you standard, decide if you want to hunt the shortest or longest|
|④||If the monster you defeated is not the longest or shortest, your record will still update|
|⑤||Repeat steps ③ and ④ until you get your desired monster size|
Crown Monsters Will Sometimes Spawn
According to Twitter, monsters that come in to replace defeated monsters in the map are more likely to be crown monsters. After defeating a large monster and waiting for its body to disappear, another monster will take its place on the map. While not definite, our team was able to spawn crown monsters while trying this method.

Do Quests With Multiple Monsters
Some quests involve hunting down 2 or more monsters. You can use these quests to get multiple gold crown monsters. Remember that you only need to defeat the monster and you do not need to clear the quest for it to get recorded. After defeating your target monster, you can choose "Return From Quest" for these numbers to get recorded.
Measuring Can Be More Difficult
When fighting multiple monsters, you must remember your reference to measure them. This can be pretty difficult compared to just fighting a single monster. If you find it difficult to remember your point of reference while fighting, best fight a lone monster instead.
What Are Crown Monsters?
Crowns Next To Monster Names
Crowns that are next to monster names denote the longest or shortest monsters that you have defeated. Each monster has a different crown size and hunting down one records the size on your Guild Card or Hunter's Note. You can also get Silver Crowns for monsters that are near the Gold Crown numbers.
Some Monsters Have No Crown Size
In Monster Hunter Rise, some monsters have a definite size. Monsters like Ibushi and Narwa fall into this category as both of these monsters' sizes do not change. Monsters that have a fixed size have no numbers displayed on their specific Hunter's Note page.
Multiple Crown Numbers
Every monster has its own biggest and smallest size. Note that this does not denote the maximum or minimum size numbers. Once a monster's size falls within a specific range, it can be judged as a crown monster. This is important to remember if you're gunning for the largest or smallest possible monsters in the game.

How To Check For Crown Size
Check Monster Sizes Using Hunter Note's
You can check your Hunter's Notes for the longest or shortest monsters that you defeated. If you've defeated a crown monster, a gold crown next to a number. You can open your Hunter's Notes anytime, even during a quest.
Check Your Guild Card
You can also check the records of your hunted monsters using your Guild Card. You can also check out the records of other players through their Guild Cards. Unlike the Hunter's Notes, you cannot view Guild Cards during a quest.
Pop-Up After Defeating A Monster
After defeating a monster, a pop-up message will appear at the right-hand side of the screen informing you if you defeated the largest or smallest monster. If it's not the biggest or smallest, you will get a message about your records being updated instead.
