The X-Hunters, known as the Counters Hunters in Japan, are trio of three Mavericks and the main antagonists of the video game Mega Man X2. They were hired by Sigma with the sole mission of disposing of X.

They intended on reconstructing Zero, knowing his true nature (which they called "The Unification").
