There are various S-Rank Hunters that appear in Solo Leveling Manga Season 1. They possess various skills and abilities, each of them are powerful, making the series irresistible. Below is the list of top 10 S-Rank hunters in Solo Levelling Season 1 that you should know.
1. Sung Jin-Woo
Originally known as the weakest hunter in the whole world, Jin-Woo has a quite big brain, which helps him to stay calm during emergency situations. His intelligent trait has led him to find out the clues during the fight in Double Dungeon and Cartenon Temple, resulting in his reawakening phase to achieve great powers such as Shadow Extraction and Portal Creation. He set his own moral codes, willing to do anything to protect someone that he cares about, and doesn’t easily get triggered to overdo his powers. Jin-Woo is truly a complete package of S-Rank Hunter that surely will achieve greater things later on.
2. Go Gun-Hee
Aside from the fact that Gun-Hee was a reawakened hunter, he actually was one of the reincarnated Rulers – powerful beings created by God to protect the Universe from the Monarchs. Unfortunately, his old age makes him unable to fully use his powers, and his human body is unable to cope with the Ruler’s power inside him. Gun-Hee is an honest person who appreciates people with good morals, and is definitely a wise, non-manipulative figure that you’d expect to find in any kind of story. He may have been deceased, but he undoubtedly remains as one of the most powerful S-Rank hunters in which all the guild masters are afraid of.
3. Sung II-Hwan
II-Hwan is Jin-Woo’s father who disappeared all of a sudden inside an unknown gate. His skills may not be overlooked much in the story, but the fact that he was able to single-handedly defeat Hwang Dong-Su without any minor injuries explains that he is truly a strong one. His skill is somewhere between S-Rank and National Level Hunters. Il-Hwan’s biggest and most powerful trait is his sense and stealth ability, which enables him to detect murderous intent from a single gaze and sneakily follow his son without a trace.
4. Hwang Dong-Su
Dong-Su is known as a traitor who leaves Korea and works for Scavenger Guild in the USA. Arrogant and selfish, he loves to torture other people and giving Jin-Woo a hard time for killing his brother, Hwang Dong-Suk. Dong-Su’s prideful attitude makes him often look down on others, which eventually becomes a boomerang for himself after being defeated by Sung Il-Hwan. He never learns from his mistake, resulting in him getting killed by the time he was going to get revenge for the second time.
5. Baek Yoon-Ho
Yoon-Ho is another strongest S-Rank hunter with a unique ability of transformation. He manages to change into a powerful white tiger which is very useful during battle.
