The Sweeper (スウィーパー,suwīpā?) was a variation of the Hunter II, differentiated from their unaltered brethren by their reddish skin. The intention of the Sweeper design was for it to "sweep" through previously-attacked areas to mop up anything left.[notes 1] Other differences included their purple veins and scales that were of a light purple color, along with red, piercing eyes. They attacked in the same manner of the Hunter II; however, unlike other Hunter types, their claws had an added poisonous effect, making them considerably more dangerous.
