The Hunter Association (人外ハンター商会, Jingai Hantaa Shoukai)? is an organization in the series.
Shin Megami Tensei IV
The Hunter Association is a group found throughout Tokyo, overseeing Challenge Quests and holding rankings for the Hunters. The organization was originally founded by Fujiwara in the hopes of finding the one who could unsheathe Masakado's sword. The Association also acts as the bar for each area they're found in, selling drinks and food to the people who need it, as well as serving as a dispatch center for passing hunters.
On the Neutral route the Hunter Champion quest is held to bring hope to the people in a time when demons were flooding in through Tokyo, with Flynn becoming the champion.

- "Facilities within each underground district that serve as hubs for the Hunter Association. The organization itself ws founded by Fujiwara and Skins.
Each Association manages registered Hunters by providing support, rewards, and assignments, ensuring that the right jobs end up with the right Hunters.
It is widely believed that founders Fujiwara and Skins created the organization to prepare for another attempt at breaching the Ceiling."
