Veggie Elders are wise elders that can be found in some areas in Monster Hunter Freedom 2 and Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. If spoken to, they'll randomly give the hunter an item. After several items are accepted, the veggie elder will tell the hunter to leave and call you a 'lazy dog'.
If the hunter has a certain item in his possession, the elder may offer to trade you.
