The Top Ten

1 Killua Zoldyck Killua Zoldyck

Sorry Naruto fans... Killua knows how to kill the REAL WAY! Naruto? Cis of the fox chakra. All the training killua went through made him HECK TOO STRONG!

Why is Killua here? He should be first! He is one of the funniest and cutest characters of the series! - HitomiKira

One of the most fleshed-out characters in the series, with great charm and background to his behavior. He's adorable, yet absolutely terrifying, clashing together to create an interesting mix not seen in many anime (at least, done well). The only problem many have with him is his dynamics with other characters, making him really clingy to the ones who care about him, although everyone, me included, just wants to see him happy with Gon in the end.

2 Kurapika Kurapika

Kurapika, is HANDS DOWN the BEST! He may not have abs like Killua's but you don't need abs to be sexy and Kurapika proves it! I mean, come on, he has the brains, the strength, the skill, the looks, and the class..! He is my absolute FAVOURITE Hunter X Hunter character OF ALL TIME.

As much as I like Killua, my vote goes to Kurapika. I personally prefer him because of his interesting revenge story and how awesome he uses chains as a weapon. I also really like seeing him develop throughout the series.

Such a fascinating and awesome character. I love his revenge story and he is the best protagonist in the show, and this is in a show where every single character in amazing. Kurapika forever!

3 Hisoka Hisoka

Hisoka sends a vibe down my back whenever he appears in the anime, causing me to want to watch more. It gets me hyped whenever I see him battle. He's both strong and knowledgeable... He's awesome! It's interesting how he wants to kill Gon, but at the same time he'll help Gon in certain times of need, in a way, it makes him kind... I guess. Hisoka wins as one of my favorite characters.

He is the best one. So intelligent during duels. I bet if he were present in Chimera Ant arc, he would make a huge difference. Unlike, knov morel and the rest who were so weak and scared by the royal guards. Wish to see him in Dark continent arc.

He dress like a clown but he is very powerful and sexy

Can't express him in words

4 Gon Freecss Gon Freecss

Many people love Killua, but I REALLY like Gon. His character development and personality brought a charm to him. He's really adorable, and doesn't care about right or wrong. Also, his relationship with Kite was great. People say he's selfish. That's not his fault! It's because he's an enhancer, and those types have that personality.

I love Sweet Smile of Gon. :) I like his attitude and his friendship with Killua.

We all know hunter x hunter isn't hunter x hunter without this lil man with a big heart

He is the best.

5 Meruem Meruem

Great psychological evolution of the character, I nearly cried when he died as a human and not as a ant.

Meruem left a strong impression on me.

Most profound character in the whole series. Besides, he is THE badass.

His character development was beautifully executed Easily the best character in this series and one of the best characters in fiction

6 Neferpitou

Most loyal character I have ever seen

Best character in Hunter X Hunter but gon kill her so I don't like gon now.

When you don't have an official gender yet the fanbase still loves you

Neferpitou is the most loyal Charakter in anime. Her will to protect the king is so strong even after her death she continues fighting

7 Kuroro Lucifer

He won 1vs1 against Hisoka without being touched

I'm voting for Chrollo (Kuroro) because the first time I saw him, he was just so handsome! I like his other hairstyle than his regular one, but all in all, Chrollo's my second favorite character in the Hunter x Hunter series.
-Sylvia Takashi

8 Leorio Paladinight

The reason I liked him was he was honestly he was very relatable. He didn't have any combat powers (that he used in combat) so he was much more like an average guy. I also empathized with his actions like when he punched Ging.

He's awesome! He's hilarious!

He's a different kind of character than the rest. - BillowPillow

Leirio is a different kind of character than the rest of the main cast. Even though he mostly contributes comedy to the show, he’s really kind and helps the rest of the characters rather than being jealous of them because of their combat skills. He’s very relatable and has a good role in the story.

9 Ging Freecss

Best Character for me..

The most brilliant character, the smartest in Hunter x Hunter series

He should be a lot high

Lowkey Savage I like em

10 Biscuit Krueger

Biscuit should be number one! She's one of the strongest characters in the entire series, both in personality and fighting skill.

She's so cute but she is also really strong

Haha.. I like her.

I think bisky is the best master

The Contenders

11 Netero

His Nen was very unique, and the fact that he'd still pulled his weight with an OP Villian. Most unique character of the show and has some of the best quotes too.

12 Feitan

Feitan is the prince of darkness in Hunter x Hunter.

He is THE badass and he is so cute but powerful and evil anyway BEST CHARACTER too me

He should be in the top 10

I love how he look so cute and powerful

13 Komugi

I feel sorta grateful that she existed

Very annoying but without her, Meruem would still remain a hateful psychopathic killer. - SelfDestruct

My favourite character she opened Meruem's heart

14 Alluka Zoldyck

She is so cute! I love her!

I find her so adorable. She seems like a good person when you get to know her.

Honestly I'm surprised she's not on here. One of the most adorable (and creepy) characters in the series! :D

15 Satotz

Just look at how the man walks! Also he doesn't have a mouth. Mouths are for lesser characters. Finally you've got to love his moustache. This guy is pure swag.

16 Kaito Kaito KAITO is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Yamaha Corporation using their new Vocaloid singing synthesizer technology under the codename of "Taro".

Kaito used his singing skills to help defeating The Ant King

Is he in the anime? Oh well.

God bless his heart

You mean Kite - izayaorihara

17 Illumi

Lol! Strange in his love for Killua, sort of like Itachi.

At first seemed like an okay character then he got really interesting (I love his face)

God damn badass

He’s such an interesting character. He’s in a way the perfect Zoldyck but he’s not the heir to the business, he’s cold but has a possessive love for Killua. Also he’s creepy as all hell and anyone that says otherwise has never watched the series enough.

Well he is baddas cool dn strong

19 Ponzu

Why didn't she get reincarnated? I nearly cried when I saw her die.

They should not have killed her of. At the very least they should have brought her back somehow.

She was too underdeveloped. If she had been around more she would have been great.
