In manhwa Solo Leveling, hunters are the direct combat force and play a major role in dungeon raids. The hierarchy of hunters is described in detail and extremely systematic, easy to understand by the author. In addition to the weak hierarchy from E to S of hunters, Solo Leveling also divided hunters into 6 official categories and 1 special type according to the function of each type.
6 types of official hunters include:
Fighter: Hunters have good offensive and defensive capabilities, suitable for melee weapons. Baek Yoon Ho is Korea’s most powerful S-rank melee hunter at the moment.
Healer: Hunters have the ability to heal various severe wounds, increase the physical strength of teammates during combat and may even cause the injured arm or leg to grow back. The most powerful Healer Solo Leveling currently is Min Byung Gyu – Korea’s only S-rank healer. He was the one who accompanied and healed S-rank hunters in the battle at the Lord’s lair on Jeju Island.
Mage: Mage hunters are people who can use magic, use mana to make tangible attacks on enemies. The Korean S-rank magic hunter is Choi Jong In.
Assassin: Hunters specialize in speed and have stealth skills in battle. They often use light weapons such as daggers to attack enemies.
Tank: Hunters are tasked with stopping the enemy, usually have heavy armor and durable. Ma Dong Wook is a tall, S-rank hunter ideal for being a tanker.
Hidden: Hunters have special abilities besides their main abilities.
Ranger: Hunters specialize in long-range attacks.
In addition, there is a very special kind of hunter in terms of strength and ability. They are people with fame and power greater than S-rank hunters. That is the National Hunter – the noble title that the strongest Japanese hunter Goto Ryuji always aims for. Up to the present time, there are only 5 national hunters worldwide.
Overall, Solo Leveling is a fair series for all characters. No matter how powerful S-rank hunters are, they need support from their allies to sweep down a successful S-rank dungeon. Besides the shine of the main character Sung Jin Woo, other characters also contributed significantly to the success of the series. In conclusion, the presence of each character in the story plays a certain role and everyone is equally important, even a minor character.
