The Elite Hunter (not to be confused with the latter Hunter Elite model) was a unique Hunter specimen that was seemingly developed in Raccoon City under the supervision of William Birkin.
This Elite model was larger than the standard 121 Alpha model and also had a notable red hue on its underbelly. A pack of these hunters were spotted in the underground sewer network during the Raccoon City incident. It is unclear if they were an authorised expansion of the 121 programme or whether this was a rouge development by Umbrella staff. Either way, their combat data was never recovered and all traces of their existence were wiped out when the city was bombed.
