A Digimon Hunter (デジモンハンター, Dejimon Hantā) is a human in possession of a Xros Loader that actively collects Digimon in DigiQuartz. Unlike a General, they currently only use a single Digimon in battle at a time, not including those used to DigiXros; in this fashion, they are more similar to a Tamer.
