The Hunter Association is an influential non-governmental organization responsible for testing and licensing hunters. In the hunter X hunter universe, only the most skilled people pass the hunter exam and become hunters in their own right.
Becoming a hunter has many benefits. They are financially fixed for life, they can freely access almost anywhere in the world and they can use the exclusive website for hunters that contains secret intelligence. In addition, hunters can work outside the law and, for the most part, are allowed to kill another without consequences. For these reasons, the Hunters Association attracts a diverse set of people with different motivations. But not everyone is seduced by the benefits of the Association and many anime characters would stray from the Hunter title.
10 Would Unite: Naruto would try to unite all hunters to make the world a better place
Throughout his life, Naruto has remained an idealist. The current Hokage was undaunted by a history of shinobi war, loss, and destruction. He never gave up hope in his dream of a peaceful world. His time as the Hokage has been peaceful, with alliances maintained since the previous Ninja War and the overwhelming power of Naruto acting as a safeguard for humanity.
Given the chance, Naruto would join the hunters association and hope to unite all hunters to make the world a better place. However, he might have a hard time persuading people like Hisoka and Illumi.
9 Wouldn’t join: Sasuke prefers to work alone
Sasuke is defined in part by his individualism. You can work well in teams (Team 7 and Taka) but prefer to work alone, outside of the laws or unspoken rules. This lack of common desire is partly due to Sasuke’s lonely childhood, as a result of being the sole survivor of the Uchiha clan massacre. However, even in Boruto, Despite his better relationships with Konoha, Sasuke chooses to work from the shadows. Although hunters prefer to work alone, they still respond to a large organization, something that would not sit well with Sasuke.
8 He would join: Light would use the Association’s considerable resources to achieve his ideal world
Initially content with achieving his post-crime utopia on his own in Death NoteLight eventually came to appreciate the resources available to him as part of Kira’s research team. As the leader of the unit, Light was able to hunt down his opponents, influence the media, and make life easier overall.
He wielded extraordinary power as Kira and the leader of the team trying to trap Kira. Light would almost certainly join the Hunters Association and work his way up to becoming the undisputed leader. From this position, Light could manipulate the hunters and achieve any social goal he desired.
7 Wouldn’t Join: Scar doesn’t trust those who wield exceptional power
Fullmetal AlchemistScar can’t be blamed for his trust issues. After all, his entire family and race were wiped out under the guise of war, when in truth, their lives were taken as human sacrifices by a philosopher’s stone.
Scar initially blamed the alchemists who used their destructive power to destroy the Ishvalans. But after further investigation, he realized that they were nothing more than puppets manipulated by the homunculi. Still, the warrior developed a distrust of those with incredible power, knowing what happens if he is wielded by inherent evil. Scar would doubtless feel the same for the Hunters.
6 Would join: Armin would have a chance to see the world
It’s easy to forget that amid the chaos and destruction in Attack on Titan, Armin dreamed of seeing the ocean. After many years fighting the Titans, he finally got his wish and has since traveled to neighboring islands. However, the world is a big place and Armin has only scratched the surface. As a hunter, Armin would have the finances and resources to travel the world and visit the remains of ancient civilizations. Note that hunters can ride for free (most of the time) and Armin would be living the dream.
5 He would join: Senku could use his hunter privileges for scientific activities
The protagonist of Dr stone, Senku’s true love is science. The genius child is constantly thinking and analyzing, trying to advance humanity and make substantial changes. After humanity was petrified for 3700 years, Senku, upon awakening, was forced to start science from scratch.
The anime sees Senku constantly frustrated by the outdated technology available to him. If he joined the Hunters Association, Senku would have access to nearly infinite resources and the most up-to-date technology. You could spend the rest of your life searching for the science you love the most.
4 Would not join: Lelouch has deep mistrust of powerful institutions
Following the suspicious death of his mother, Lelouch was discarded by the British royal family in Geass Code. His mistreatment fueled a burning hatred for the world’s greatest empire and, after receiving the power of Geass, Lelouch set in motion his plan to destroy Britannia.
The unhinged genius doesn’t care about authority, and who can blame him. His track record caused serious trust issues, and unless he’s leading an organization, Lelouch doesn’t want to be a part of it. The Hunters Association is a powerful institution that solves and causes problems. He wields a great deal of power, something Lelouch hates.
3 Would join: Mustang’s ambition leads him to powerful positions
Roy Mustang is an incredibly powerful alchemist whose strength matches his ambition. The Flame Alchemist is the complete package: charismatic, intelligent, powerful, and a respected war hero. He dreams of one day becoming the Führer of Amestris; the undisputed leader of his country.
It is for this reason that Mustang would join the Hunters Association. His insatiable ambition means that the Flame Alchemist would do his best to become president of the powerful organization. And he could, his mastery over his alchemy and his natural charisma would make him a formidable hunter and leader.
two Wouldn’t Join: Alucard is only loyal to the Van Helsing family
The complex and whimsical vampire of Hellsing it’s a bit of an enigma. Although individualistic by nature, Alucard works and obeys the Van Helsing organization. However, this appears to be an aberration.
Before being defeated by Van Helsing, Alucard roamed the world, acting independently. There are no laws that Alucard responds to, there are no unspoken rules for him to follow. Sure, hunters are granted immunity status from the law, but that means nothing to the vampire king. You are already on top of a mortal world; any organization is below him.
1 Would Join: All Might’s personal morality requires that he act within the law
Law and order in the hunter X hunter The universe is not as black and white as the justice system seen in My Hero Academia. All Might was the ultimate professional hero, and it was his legal responsibility to stop and defeat threats to the public. Hunters are a bit different.
There are those who specialize in catching criminals, but hunters can act outside the law. A hunter’s license frees you from the shackles of the law and a hunter can kill another person without repercussions. All Might would likely join the Hunters Association to bring in criminals legally while making sure not to abuse his position as a Hunter.
