Hunter (ハンター Hantaa) is a combat physical class introduced in Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi, and appears in several later instalments and both TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga and TearRing Saga: Berwick Saga. Wielding Bows as their sole weapon of choice, Hunters are skilled in forest and mountain combat and possess higher Strength, and Speed than Archers.

History in the SeriesEdit

In their original inception in Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi, Hunters are regarded as the counterpart to the Archer class who trade Defense for Strength. Like several classes, hunters are unable to promote in the game. Hunter characters in the game tended to be grouped with criminals such as Bandits, and Pirates.

Beginning from Mystery of the Emblem, Hunters are able to promote into Horsemen with an Orion's Bolt, a class that grants them a horse for superior field movement and dodging capabilities.

In Genealogy of the Holy War, Hunters are related to an Enemy class. In comparison to the playable Bow Fighter class, Hunters have higher HP in exchange for less Skill, and Speed.

Hunters had more or less the same role as an enemy exclusive class in Thracia 776. They were given new battle animations, as well as higher defense then Bow Fighters.

In TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga, Hunters appear as a bow variant of the Bandit class and are only available to the enemy. They are common enemies encountered in the starting maps of the game.

In the remakes, Shadow Dragon and Shin Monshō no Nazo, Hunters return, and are put in the heavy Reclassing category. Hunters retain the ability to promote to Horseman, not only gaining a mount but also the ability to wield Swords.
