Do those hands count as animals?

Favorite Type of Hunter

I’ll admit, I was surprised t how many Hunter types were identified in the series. Since the main characters ( other than Kurapika in the end) never pick a type, I had never paid that much attention to that part of the show.

I remember clearly the gourmet hunters from the exam arc but otherwise I was at a loss. Did you guys know there are Paleograph Hunters?

Anyways, my first instincts was to go with whatever Knuckles is because I love dogs too. Turns out, knuckles is a Beast Hunter. In practice this means: Hunters who feel a deep love for nature; their job involves the study and preservation of undiscovered animal species. There are two subcategories of Beast Hunter—Exotic Game Hunters and UMA (Unidentified Mysterious Animal) Hunters. via HxH wiki

Honestly that sounds awesome!

insects count as animals

Shoot, Knuckles and Pokkle are all Beast Hunters and they’re all pretty nice guys. Surprisingly, Kite is not part of this group, despite environmental study and preservation being his life’s work. Apparently he’s a Contract Hunter, probably because he gets paid for his biological surveys by corporations.

Another closely related Hunter type is Poacher Hunters who are described as Hunters who are dedicated to study animals and protect them from poachers. Much like the Nen types, it seems the definition of Hunter types leaves a few things to be desired.

  • Every time we learn a Hunter type – have a drink
  • Every time you recognize a hunter type – raise your glass
  • Every time a hunter has no type –  have some water
  • Every time you space out staring at the gif below  – have a drink
