Who is Hisoka!
Hisoka – a character in the hit anime and manga series Hunter X Hunter. Hisoka’s outer appearance is similar to a magician but is sometimes compared to a clown. However, don’t let this fool you as he is one of the ruthless and powerful antagonist in the manga. It would also be interesting to note that his clothing changes after each arc.
He has extreme confidence in his abilities and a good analysis of a person’s abilities and capabilities. Hisoka’s main goal in the series is to compete with strong NEN characters. Some of his targets include Kororo Lucifer, Ging Freecs, and Killua Zoldyck. Interestingly, he somewhat shows little interest in fighting Chairman Netero, Zeno Zoldyck, Sylva Zoldyck, and the Zodiac 13.
Showcase of Power and Abilities:
- Almost killed an examiner in his first try of the Hunter Exam simply because he saw the examiner as weak.
- Killed the same examiner in his second try of the Hunte Exam
- First to escape the Trick Tower on the Hunter Exam arc
- A regular roster in the upper floors of the Heavens Arena (for those who are unaware, only powerful fighters are able to reach the upper floors and compete with its strong rosters)
- Faked his membership in the Phantom Troupe just to get close and have a match with its leader that is Kororo Lucifer
- Causes uneasiness between some members of the Spider Brigade
- Feared by a lot of NEN users
- Killed Gotoh, a butler of the Zoldyck family
- Killed a lot of Hunters including Bushidora and Teradein in the current arc of the series
The Verdict –
Sometime ago, have posted the powerful characters of the hit manga (and anime) series Hunter X Hunter. Some are wondering why Hisoka is not included on the list. Hands down, Hisoka is a powerful character in Hunter X Hunter with a lot of potential.
Unfortunately, that post is about the top “five” most powerful characters. So, even if Hisoka is in the upper tier of strong characters in the series, it would be quite impossible for him to enter the top five.
There are also a couple of instances wherein Hisoka had a difficult time with some lesser or weaker opponents like Kastro, the second examiner in the Hunter Exam arc, and Gotoh.
Though he is heavily injured in his fight with Razr (one of Ging’s friends and one of the creators of Greed Island), that is already a given since Razr is a tough opponent.
Now you know. Hisoka is indeed strong, but not enough to enter the top five.
