First appearance

Scene 25, Anime Scene 9


"Awakened hunt" is but one variant of 覚醒者の討伐, which can be variously translated as "punitive awakened expedition," "awakened person hunt" and the like.

In one scene, VIZ Media translates 覚醒者の討伐 as "hit squad."[12]




Team of two or more Claymore warriors, assigned to hunt and kill awakened beings. A single-digit captain and three double-digit warriors is the usual configuration.

A hunt is dispatched by the Organization on request from client. The post-Battle of the North situation in Alfons is an exception, where hunts are proactive.[13]


A few single-digit warriors, such as Cassandra, are assigned alone to missions. In Nirohiro Yagi's earlier series, Angel Densetsu, a dream depicts a combat resembling a solo Awakened hunt.[14]

Mission Flow[]

Hunts are similar to solo assignments.[15]

  • Yoma outbreak in client's locale
  • Request for Yoma suppression by client
  • Headquarters to accept or reject request
  • Dispatch of warrior via Man in Black
  • Execution of mission by warrior
  • Collection of fee if mission successful
  • Mission report, analysis of accumulated results
