Hunter x Hunter is one of the most popular manga and anime in Japan. Famous for it’s amazing storyline and depth of it’s characters, here are some of it’s strongest cast of hunters and villains.
#5 – Gon Freecss (Enhancer) + (Adult Form)
Main protagonist Gon Freecss has shown what he has already achieve at such a tender young age, it’s frightening to know how much more he can reach. Unreal perception ability coupled with his innate genius made him one of the youngest hunter ever.
During one of the best storyline, the Chimera Ant arc,Gon’s rage release transformation was so devastating and powerful that he could easily defeat Royal Guard Ant Neferpitou which Neferpitou proclaim that his prowess may be on par with Chimera Ant King Meruem.
Gon Freecss’ guts and never-give-up spirit is what makes him in this top list. Will he ever make it to #1? Time will tell.
#4 – Chrollo Lucilfer (Specialist)
When a hunter can hold his own against the combined attacks of world class assassins Zeno and Silva Zoldyck as well as winning in a duel against the crazy Hunter Hisoka, he has to be pretty special.
That’s what Chrollo Lucilfer is. Did I also mention that he is the leader of the renowned A-Class Bounties Phantom Troupe, where each of the 13 member are all highly skilled Nen Users (even Hisoka was part of that group previously).
A charismatic leader with one of the most brilliant mind and calmness, Chrollo Lucilfer’s ability to steal other Nen ability as well as his own combat skills just makes him one of the strongest Hunter character around.
#3 – Ging Freecss (Unknown)
Surprise surprise, Gon’s father Ging Freecss is ranked number three. Hailed by Netero as the best five Nen users in the world, who are we to argue? Ging is also part of the elite Zodiacs, a group of 12 Hunters whose skills and abilities are concurred by Chairman Netero with Ging bearing the “Boar” code.
Ging could have gotten his Triple Star License, the highest recognition in the Hunter x Hunter World, if he had bothered to apply. His talent, fame and powers are also so well-known that he already has the prerequisite to be the next chairman.
Even Hisoka is extremely eager to take him on.
#2 – Isaac Netero (Enhancer)
The 12th chairman of the “Hunters Association”, who at the age of 110, is the only one who have made Chimera Ant King Meruem facing fear and death. You can only imagine his strength when he was at the peak of his prowess. Isaac Netero is fast enough to out-speed both Royal guard Neferpitou as well as Meruem, with punches that is faster than sound.
A master of the triple Nen categories of Enhancement, Emission and Manipulation, Isaac Netero’s 100-Type Guanyin Bodhisattva was his ultimate trump card. Once activated, you won’t even know you get it because it’s too fast and strong!
#1 – Meruem (Unknown)
Meant to be born as the King of the Chimera Ant. Meruem is just the strongest there is, not to mention he is highly intelligent as well. He could easily learn and analyze anything in a blink of the eye, and set about plans to strategize.
Meruem’s strength is so massive that he could easily kill with a single strike, and is so fast that he could tore off Hunters Association’s strongest hunter and chairman Netero’s arm and leg in a flash. His body is so tough and durable that even taking tonnes of hits from Netero’s sonic blows couldn’t truly hurt him.
Hack, life is so unfair that just by consumption, Meruem’s aura grows stronger and more powerful with each bite. He has show skills in all Nen abilities without the need to really “learn” the techniques. Until stronger characters show up, for now, Meruem is King of both the Ants and this list!
Characters squeezing into this list
One of the most popular character Hisoka just missed the list after losing to Chrollo Lucilfer. But make no mistake, Hisoka is as crazily powerful as it gets. When he was with the famous Phantom Troupe, his arm strength was ranked third in the group of 13.
Calm, cruel and cunning, Hisoka is really the ultimate killing machine who totally have a natural way of fighting and maximizing his Nen ability to the fullest. Can Hisoka one day break into the top five list? Don’t bet against it.
The Zoldycks – Zeno Zoldyck (Transmuter) / Silva Zoldyck (Transmuter) / Illumi Zoldyck (Manipulators) / Killua Zoldyck (Transmuter)
The Zoldycks are a family of assassins, with every member of their group having the potential to break into the top five. The thought of this is crazy.
Main protagonist Killua’s father Silva and grandfather Zeno are amongst the strongest members of the zoldyck family. Killua himself is said to be the most gifted of his generation while his brother Illumi was ranked 95 out of 100 by Hisoka, putting Illumi even above some of the fame Zodiacs.
There is just no stopping one of the Zoldyck family members to eventually be inside the top five strongest characters in Hunter X Hunter.
Leader, firstborn and strongest of the Royal Guards under the Chimera Ant King Meruem. Easily killed highly skilled and experience Hunter Kite, Neferpitou was also recognised by Netero as a powerful enemy.
