The Hunter is a life you can choose to lead in the game Fantasy Life. It is one of 12 Lives available to choose to play as during the game and can be chosen at any time during the game by speaking to the Guild Master.
The Hunter uses the bow and arrow to inflict damage and status effects (poison, sleep and paralysis) on enemies from a safe distance.

When you reach God/Creator rank with Hunter you gain the ability Flash which can be activated when you have a double charged Skill Gauge. When activated Flash gives you a 100% crit buff and constantly refills your Skill Gauge for 1 minute.
Press the directional buttons on the D-pad to change the status effects that you will inflict. You can switch between:
- Normal: no special status effects, but you will inflict the most damage.
- Poison: when an enemy is struck, they will take damage over time.
- Sleep: when an enemy is struck, they will usually go to sleep. This does not always work, especially with bosses.
- Stun: when an enemy is struck, they will usually be stunned for a short time. This does not always work, especially with Bosses.
Sharpshooting x3: (A)+(A)+(A.) Shoots 3 basic arrows at a quick rate.
Jumpshot: (A,) after 3rd sharpshooting. User does a short leap back in the air and fires a 4th, faster and slightly more damaging arrow.
Arrow swarm: (A,) during jumpshot. The user does a quick twirl and shoots 3 arrows that go in seperate directions and, upon despawning or hitting an enemy, leave small yellow explosions. It can hit multiple enemies. The timing should be during the jumpshot animation where you leap into the air.
Hero shot: (A,) after jumpshot. The user does a quick twirl and fires a large, orange arrow that can hit an enemy 3-4 times. The timing ranges from after you fire the arrow in jumpshot, to just before you land back onto the ground.
Arrow web: (A,) after hero shot or arrow swarm. The user does a backflip further into the air and does a shout, followed by them shooting down a powerful arrow that causes a high damaging explosion once it hits the ground. There are some invincibility frames during the firing animation. The arrow can hit larger enemies multiple times before exploding.
Backstep: (A,) while moving backwards. The user does a quick leap backwards, granting some invincibility frames.
Fading Shot: (A,) during backstep. The user pauses and does a twirl, firing 3 innacurate arrows similar to the ones in arrow swarm, then sending the user further backwards with more invincibility.
Piercing arrow: Press and hold (A.) Fires a powerful arrow that, as its name implies, pierces through multiple enemies. If the arrows are selected to a status inflicting mode, they weaken in power and lose their piercing effect, but have a chance of inflicting the status they're set on.
Ultra piercing arrow: Long press and hold (A.) A stronger version of the latter that deals more damage and travels further. Has a higher chance of inflicting status alignments.
Scattershot: Press and hold (X.) User fires 10 inaccurate arrows all about, the 10th ending with a shout and being more accurate than the rest.
Super scattershot: Long press and hold (X.) Fires much faster and stronger than the latter, with 15 arrows instead of 10.
Arrow rain: (X,) When skill is fully charged. The user rapidly fires their bow in the air, sending a stream of arrows upwards. Quickly afterwards, they all rain back down onto a single location around the user, creating a rapidly damaging aoe.
Arrow storm: (X,) master rank when skill is charged. Basically a stronger, faster-damaging version of the latter.
Arrow hurricane: (X,) creator rank. Combines both of the previous skills into one. During the point where arrow storm hits, the user fires one giant arrow into the air that comes down by the end of arrow storm, creating a large explosion.
