The role of the Hunters is to defeat the beasts and clear the magical dungeons so that these monsters do not set their foot on Earth. The Hunters are also paid according to the loot that they manage to collect and sell, which eventually results in the constitution of their salaries.

In this article, we shall focus on the most powerful hunters in Solo Leveling anime so far and cover the growth and rankings. The list will not include Sung Jinwoo, because he is an evergrowing character whose strength is yet to be determined. And so carrying on a similar spirit, this list as well is evergrowing and will continue to list out the strongest as more episodes come out.

  • Despite being a B-Rank healer, Joohee always went on easy raids and eventually retired completely when she was unable to recover from her traumatic experience in the Double Dungeon.
  • She is a kind and pleasant woman who is afraid of the perils of hunting.
  • She also has a tight relationship with Jinwoo because she has accompanied him on many raids to ensure his safety and has even been known to grow upset with him for being hurt so regularly.

Song Chi-Yul is a C-Rank Hunter from Korea who also teaches kumdo. Being one of the five survivors of the initial Double Dungeon event, he has also been friends with Jinwoo since he was an E-Rank Hunter. With a strong sense of responsibility, he is a gregarious, sardonic man who refuses to give up hunting even after losing his right arm in the Double Dungeon.

His relationships with Jinwoo and Joohee show that he also has compassion for his allies, and he has repeatedly offered his life in defense of them. Because Chi-Yul is an adept fire user, he rarely had problems in the field, with the exception of the Double Dungeon event where he lost his arm and almost saw his life’s end.

Choi Jong-In is the Hunters Guild’s Guild Master and a Korean S-Rank Hunter specializing in fire magic. He is a lanky young man with red hair styled like a curtain and parted over his right eye on the left side. In addition, he usually wears striped business suits and has a really friendly smile. His eyes shine a vivid magenta when he uses his powers.

As the most formidable mage-type hunter in Korea, Choi is said to be on par with Yoonho in terms of power. Even yet, given that Cha Hae-In is the new prodigal S-Rank hunter, he is still far weaker than her. He can easily control flames and use them to generate powerful strikes like Flame Spear and Flame Dragon to deal damage to his opponents. Furthermore, he has the power to employ flames to defend himself from attackers, known as Flame Prison.

2. Go Gunhee

Gunhee is a modest, honest, and forthright person who is always deeply grateful to anyone who upholds moral principles but detests those who pursue selfish interests alone.

In the past, Gunhee was unquestionably Korea’s best hunter. Unfortunately, after only a few years of working as a hunter, Gunhee’s body started to lose its capacity to handle its power owing to his old age. Gunhee had thought that the discovery of healing magic would allow him to return to the game by turning back time, but it had not worked. Gunhee ran out of choices and finally became the Chairman of the Korean Hunters Association, never planning to return to hunting.
