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.

Honestly, what's not to love about this adorable badass? - Lyricoh

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!

He is savage

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

Hisoka isn't a very deep character but he is amazing character who does what drives him pleasure and he got strange lust for fighting that make s him so entertaining to watch he is the reason I love hxh much as I do.

4 Gon Freecss Gon Freecss

Gon is my favorite Hunter x Hunter character and will always be. With his determination to improve and his effort, he became a character of great admiration of mine. In addition to his immense cuteness, he has a friendly and sympathetic attitude towards everyone he ends up knowing, opposite to what many people say about him, of just being nice to people who would be "useful" to him (hate this: b). I love your relationship with Killua and I hope Alluka leaves him just so they can be together again. The friendship between them is very beautiful and I always go to tears when Killua thinks Gon as best friend and the protagonist too. Just too much for me lol. Another point for me to like Gon is his lively and enthusiastic personality, which makes me love him even more. One moment that changed his reputation was the time of the Ant Chimera, where he showed the dark part of his being, making him even more human! He may have had a giant emotional outbursts, but this was due to the ...more

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 can relate to Gon when it comes to personality, I'm selfish,I'm childish, I'm stupid, and a lot more. Gon is just the best character for me no matter how much someone tries to convince me why this character is terrible and I should like this one better. That one episode in the Chimera Ant Arc was amazing, it truly showed that even the nicest and most friendly characters that would just hurt an opponent rather than kill them showed their dark side that was hiding inside them all this time waiting to be released. I also like the Killua X Gon ships, don't bother asking why, their friendship is just so adorable

How do u underrate the main character this bad. Kurapika #2 really? Gon made hxh good. Without him the show would be so bland

5 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

6 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.

Meurem didn’t look up from the Gungi rulebook he was reading as he spoke, “Right now I am learning the rules, so you will have to wait."

7 Kuroro Lucifer

Finest man on earth.

He won 1vs1 against Hisoka without being touched

Chrollo is mesmerizing. I remember falling for him the first time I laid my eyes on him. his mysterious aura is so alluring and he just got that charming and charismatic way of talking. he is so damn fine

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 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

9 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

Because your gay

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.

Bisky is such a hard ass, and such a cool character

The Contenders

11 Feitan

Feitan is the prince of darkness in Hunter x Hunter.

One of the most intriguing and well-written characters of the anime. I simply love Feitan. He's bloody brilliant.

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

He is à cool interesting character cause his fullpower and potential.

12 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.

Absolutely savage, going from a kind and clever teacher into a warrior so powerful to fight the unbreakable Mereum and actually damage/semi stand up to for a few minutes (nobody else even pulled off one second) anyway, Netero, he’s inspirational.

13 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

Sooo cute. ^^ - Gehenna

14 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)

His fine silky hair damn it sexy

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.

Kaito used his singing skills to help defeating The Ant King

God bless his heart

Is he in the anime? Oh well.

16 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.
