Humanoid Hunter is an Aux Core or a Skill RAM/Upgrade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Torna ~ The Golden Country. It increases the damage dealt against Humanoids by up to 45%.

Humanoid-type enemies belong to the following enemy species: Garlus, Guldo, Igna and Tirkin. All human foes (Ardainian Soldier, Brionac, Indoline Loyalist, Lindwurm, Tantalese Knight) and human Drivers (Ardainian, Gormotti, Urayan, Tornan) are also treated as Humanoid enemies. During the challenge This Year's Heropon, all Nopon are Humanoids (except for the potato Tatsu, which is an Aquatic Skeeter). Blades belong to the Blade-type, and are generally not affected by this effect.

The Skill RAM/Upgrade variants can be used to customize Poppi α, Poppi QT and Poppi QTπ as an Aux Core equivalent.
