S-Rank is the highest rank a hunter can be.
S-Rank Hunters are distinguished by the fact that their mana levels are so high that they can't be measured by mana meter technology. As the vast majority of hunters never reach that level of power, S-Rank Hunters are very rare amongst the human population, with only a handful per country and a few hundred worldwide. As a result of this and the rising demand, S-Ranks are highly valued wherever they go and are typically rolling in money, with Hwang Dongsoo casually mentioning that he makes enough cash to last three generations. It should also be noted that a fight between S-Ranks typically devastates the surrounding landscape and that S-Ranks are so powerful that it can be almost impossible to hold them accountable if they commit crimes, as displayed by how Jinwoo was never charged with murder for killing Dongsoo.
However, as their mana levels can't be measured, there is no power cap on S-Ranks like there is with the lower ranks. As a result, the power gaps between S-Ranks is the highest out of any other rank. Also, unless the power gap between two S-Ranks is very large, it is virtually impossible to accurately compare them in strength. As a result, S-Ranks are ranked internationally by their achievements via a point system created by the Federal Bureau of Hunters, and not by their raw power or mana levels.
