An ongoing {{manhwa}} written and illustrated by Jung-Man CHO. Witch Hunter is equal parts comedy, drama, action, and intrigue, fueled by RuleOfCool and a truly lovable PowerTrio. Despite its epic scope, Witch Hunter favours character dynamics over politics; Tasha and his comrades (and enemies, and in-betweens) spend more screentime interacting than playing MrExposition. Also: Every man is {{Badass}}, every woman a HotLibrarian or CuteWitch, and awesome binds the universe together. You'll find little {{Angst}} here -- unlike that [[Manga/WitchHunterRobin other Asian graphic novel about hunting witches]], Jung-Man Cho's title never takes itself ''too'' seriously.

* DivingSave: Linda to Tasha in 154, before they joined WH and when a witch attacked the town they were in.



* [[spoiler:ForWantOfANail: The whole problem with Bailong is that "Yue" is emperor and most of the kingdom wanted Xing to be emperor. [[TwinSwitch Except Xing is "Yue"]] but only [[{{Jerkass}} Xing's father, the former emperor and Xing's other brother Lee]] know that. It goes down hill from there.]]

* InformedAbility: Both subverted and, erm, inverted, due to NoExportForYou. [[spoiler:Visul]] is revealed to be actually stronger than a Black Class in #52, which was a surprise to most readers... but actually it had been mentioned in the extra character file [[{{Foreshadowing}} a few volumes in advance]]. And #57 makes it straight it again [[spoiler: as for all her reveal, she needed a Black Class to save her... which he does with almost embarrassing ease.]]

* KiAttacks: Implied to be the nature of Xing's abilities.

Added DiffLines:

* MentorShip: Tasha and Edea's relationship was close enough that one would figure this was the case. Both had very strong feelings that teetered between platonic and romantic from the dialogue alone.

Added DiffLines:

* MacGuffinSuperPerson: TheHero, Tasha Godspell, is revealed to be both the key to the {{Big Bad}}'s plans for wiping out humanity, but also the key to stopping these plans and saving mankind. Exactly ''how'' this works has yet to be explained. There are also several other witches out to capture him, including his own sister.

Added DiffLines:

* ImmortalInfertility: Witches seem to be immortal unless killed, but Mana is too toxic for fetuses to survive. To curb their desires for children, they instead take on apprentices.

* TheChainsOfCommanding: Invoked by Yue as the reason [[ReluctantRuler he'd rather leave the throne to his brothers]].



* TheFaceless: North and Edea Florence [[spoiler: until chapter 31, anyway.]]



* TheMole: As of Vol. 9, we're still unsure whether or not [[spoiler: Words]] is TheMole or a DoubleAgent. [[spoiler:Eunryu seems to be this, what with being an S-Class WH ''and'' North's henchman]].



* SmallNameBigEgo: Surprisingly subverted with Tarras. While he has [[SmugSnake a]] [[ItsAllAboutMe massive]] [[UpperClassTwit ego]] and is the end of [[ButtMonkey most]] [[ComedicSociopathy accidents]], he has [[InsufferableGenius demonstrated]] to be ''actually'' a [[CharacterizationMarchesOn superb]] warrior and had [[BigDamnHeroes singlehandedly]] [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beaten]] extremely powerful witches over and over again [[spoiler: like his fight in Chapter 57]]. The {{BadassBoast}}s make everyone in-universe hate him but they're completely justified.

* ElementalPowers: Vihyungrang can command the spirits of Earth and Fire.

to:

* ElementalPowers: Vihyungrang can command the spirits of Earth and Fire.Fire, while Tarras and his sister can only do the former.
* EmotionControl: Witches against humanity use magic to control and suppress their unwanted emotions. This is why many of them find it easy to kill without any thought.

* MeaningfulEcho: Tasha and Visul once witness a Doberg (Tania and Tarras, respectively) [[DestructiveSavior at work]], and respond to their respective Dobergs with the exact same line:
--> '''Tasha (in his head)/Visul''': [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill It's like burning down the house just to catch a flea]]!



** [[spoiler:It doesn't help that later he was revealed to be a reincarnation of the great witch West, which means that yes, there is a touch of feminine in him.]]



* PersonOfMassDestruction: Everyone.

* PersonOfMassDestruction: Everyone.[[WorldOfBadass Everyone]].



* TheStoic: Words Blondy von Worth [[GratuitousEnglish (yes, really)]] hasn't smiled on-screen to date.

Added DiffLines:

* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Seems to be the Dobergs' modus operandi. Tasha and Visul have both compared their fighting method to "burning down the house to catch a flea".
