The Hunter's Guild (ハンターギルド Hantā Girudo?) are a guild from the game Mega Man ZX Advent. The Hunters live by searching for lost technology and hunting down dangerous Mavericks for bounties. They are licensed and assigned to missions by the coalition government Legion. Not all of them are bounty hunters, among them there are café owners, researchers, reporters, nurses and others.
Many remains of the past wars still exist across the globe. When one entrepreneur discovered technology from the war in the ruins and used it to build one of the world's leading corporations, people with dreams of getting rich quickly gathered and formed the Hunter's Guild. Since the ruins housing the lost technology tend to be inhabited by Mavericks, the Hunters work armed and the majority wears a green armored uniform for protection (an orange variant also exists). As a result, it's not uncommon for them to also hunt dangerous Mavericks for money.
Generally speaking, the Hunters are a very colorful bunch. Aside from the armed Hunters, there are also café owners, crazy researchers, reporters, nurses, etc. Both humans and Reploids integrate the guild and their principles seem to vary drastically; examples of this can be seen in the stories of Ashe, who was adopted by Hunters and Siarnaq, who was betrayed and left for dead.
The Hunters also clash frequently with the Raiders; while the Hunters search technology for their clients, the Raiders attempt to claim the technology for themselves. In Mega Man ZX Advent, Hunters were hired by Legion to retrieve a Biometal found by the Raiders, being successful after surviving a surprise attack from Prometheus. However, the Hunters were once again attacked by Mavericks as they transported the Biometal to Legion HQ by train. Led by the Pseudoroid Buckfire, the Mavericks threatened to overwhelm the Hunters before they were defeated by the new Mega Man Model A.
Following the incident, the Hunters are prominent figures in side quests of the game, but they would only have a new role in the storyline after the rise of Ouroboros; with all of their airships destroyed by Mavericks, the Hunters decided to join the protagonist and the Guardians on the attack against the ultimate Biometal. With additional support from Master Thomas, who made the destruction of Ouroboros an official mission from Legion, the Hunters backed up the Mega Man Model A in the final battle, which ended with the destruction of Model W.
