Top Strongest Hunter X Hunter Characters

This list may not be 100% right. Since we haven't seens the real power of every character.

The Top Ten

1 Meruem Meruem

He went toe

to toe with the chairman how many people can say that

If Mereum didn't get poisoned he would've become God like. He defeated the most powerful human ever and then got vastly more powerful after that. Mereum went completely undefeated. There was no way to beat him in combat.

This guy needs to be in first. He OWNS virtually every character seen so far.

He should be 1.

2 Ging

Created a world, outsmarts anyone, predicts everything, impossible to find, super powerful and possesses incredible knowledge about Nen furthermore he is considered to be among the best, if not the best, hunters of the present time whilst no hunter even knows the full extent of his powers. Finally Gin discovers and fights, constantly versus the unknown, across the world which may contain creatures and threats as powerful or even more powerful than Merumen. He is the living example of what a true hunter is supposed to be.

Ging from the list and as far he is the strongest character to be presented. We don't know who the other 4 of the top 5 are, so lets say he is the strongest as far as the story has gone.

1.- Said to be on the top 5. Not even Netero said something like he was in it otherwise Biscuit had said that Ging and Netero are in the top 5.
2.- Stated by Kaito to be the best hunter in his opinion, and that the best hunt was to hunt him since he is extremely hard to find, not even the Zodiacs can find him once he is gone.
3.- Has an equal status as Netero in the hunter association just as Kurapika said, there is no INFO from him in the network and no one can track him or know any information of him if you don't know him directly. All this even without being the president.
4.- Hizoka was searching for Ging using some kind of power to measure the power of each hunter, being the brother of Killua the strongest he saw. I think that if he saw Ging, his power would be 1 or even 0 since ...more

I like ging

Ging is the strongest

3 Netero

It say his the strongest men user expect for Meriden there could be others in the dark continent

His the chairman

Netero should be higher. During his prime he was stated to be the #1 best nen user in the entire world! And even in his old age he was still incredibly powerful, he isn't feared or respected by many for nothing.

Killed the guy at #1 end of discussion

4 Chrollo

To be honest... so far he can be the strongest character since most of his abilities are still unknown... I'm most likely looking forward to know more about him..

Zeno was actually planning to sacrifice himself to kill Chrollo. That's how hard it was for TWO expert assassins to combat this Phantom Troupe member. Chrollo would have been defeated, but so would a Zoldyck family member. He is undoubtedly amazing. Why else would Hisoka be so interested in fighting him? Oh, and remember that Chrollo is a LOT younger than Zeno and Silva.

To be honest, Hisoka could beat him because Hisoka is thicc - Bigandbagguy

"He inspires respect and some fear in a group where everyone is practically a beast..."

5 Hisoka Hisoka

First of all, Hisoka's adaptability and talent is scary, he was able to easily grab Togari's(former Hunter examiner) quickly master the usage of spinning knives, besting a expert who trained for one year mere seconds after their battle started.
Also dodged continuous attacks from Gon without making a step, Hisoka is very unpredictable character in which the viewers have seen multiple ways Hisoka has defeated opponents: brute strength, trickery, strategy, intellect and adaptability to use his abilities in different situations, there are more abilities that will shown for when Hisoka fights stronger opponents as this fits with his personality Hisoka finds fighting fun with opponents that he likes to face thus not needing to reveal all his ability - like a magician

My bae

Very strong

My best friend - Bigandbagguy

6 Maha Zoldyck

Why is he lower than Hisoka

Netero level.

Even netero barely escape with this fella. Should be in the top 5

It said Netero was the strongest hunter and it was a miracle that he surived in a fight against maha so he's got to be the strongest

V 19 Comments
7 Neferpitou


Why is she/he lower than killua? Youpi quickly recovered after his most powerful attack

Gon still beat her though which means he should have higher ranking than her in my opinion

Again, a royal guard is leagues above any human nen user, even Netero can't take one down on his own, Gon only killed them with an extreme sacrifice in a stat that's all but human - Hound

V 11 Comments
8 Gon

Well gon adult transformation is strong.

A persons full power should be discussed as to what heights and/or feats they have showcased. Therefore, Gon should be on principle higher than Neferpitou.

Gon is the power of all because he beats so many

He will always have the strongest armor(plot armor) until the end of the show at least(maybe)

V 70 Comments
9 Killua

Killua a straight up savage

This dude is hotter than everyone else. ;3

I think Killua is stronger than Gon and smarter, too. He's so cool. He keeps Gon in check when he tend to make a hasty decision.

He's definitely stronger than gon that's for shore

V 61 Comments
10 Zeno

He a boss

This Grandad owns. He barely uses any effort when fighting and is still stronger than most characters in the show

His knowledge ranks him Higher than Gon, and Hisoka.

Zeno is stronger than Killua but Killua has enough potential to be stronger, so I think Zeno should be a higher rank than killua

V 12 Comments

The Newcomers

? Tonpa Tonpa

His extra layers of fat allows him to defend against most attacks easily.

Goku is trembling

He's lie Yamcha he could beat anyone LOL

He's the strongest character

The Contenders

11 Feitan

That dude can create a small sun by his own. What else do you need to prove that he should be in the top 10? He could kill all the phantom brigade members on his own with this attack.

He can probably kill anyone in the show lets face it

What about if he have to die, it will cause the Pain Packer more powerful

This guy needs to be in the top ten I mean even sphinks told everyone to runaway or they would surely be dead...INSTANTLY... perhaps it's a far fetch but I can totally see him holding his own against a royal guard such as poof or youpi

12 Kurapika Kurapika

She is one of the specialists she obviously deserves a higher rank at least higher than gon

Judgement chain can put restrictions for absolutely anything with the threat of their life, and can be put on anyone. Kurapika isn't #1 material (though he is my favourite), but I just don't get why he isn't at least top ten. Come on, if he were in the chimera ant arc, he could've completely wiped out Meruem with just one ability. He's also more intelligent than most other characters and I just don't get why Kurapika's not in top 10.

Kurapika should be #1 since he can use 100% of every type of nen, well only when he's fighting the spiders, which he wont do anymore - Bigandbagguy

The people who think Kurapika would only be powerful against the troupe are woefully incorrect. The only power that is restricted to the spiders is his chain jail.
The fact that he becomes a specialist with full control over every category of nen when he goes into Emperor Time is insane, and very powerful.

13 Silva Zoldyck

He is a Zoldyck family member, and also the head of the strongest group of assassins in the WORLD. It's obvious he is above both Killua and Gon.

He's on Ging level! His mentality is: Only acting, when you are sure of victory. He accepted a mission to defeat the entire (! not only Chrollo) Phantom Troupe!

Should be at top 8 stronger than killua and gon for sure

In what way is killua stringer than him?

V 9 Comments
14 Isaac Netero

Definitely one of the stronger characters being able to fight Meruem and all

What the heck... Netero is already up on the list on rank 2...

He should be higher than himself without a first name

Isaac Netero Isaac Netero. Isaac Netero, Isaac Netero Isaac Netero.

15 Menthuthuyoupi

The strongest Royal Guard, he could not be overpowered.

It took Killua, Knuckle, Shoot, and Morel beat this brute.

What!? he's a royal guard, no human can match him, why is he so low! - Hound


16 Illumi

Hisoka has a clear respect for Illumi which wouldn't be there if Illumi isn't insanely powerful. He is at the very least on Hisoka's level.

Should be much higher, he's at hisoka's level. people just don't think of him at first because he's not a main character

No way killia is stronger than illumi

Don't see enough of illumi to truly understand his power. He should in top 10 at least. You can tell how powerful he is by the way killua reacts to him. Killua is his brother do he knows how strong he is, and killua is pretty fearless.

17 Kite

Damaging pitou with one arm? And survive the battle cause of his ability? Kite is a legendary character

I believe Kite deserves a top-ten spot. He has such a crazy yet wonderful nen ability that we only saw a little of (Crazy clown), although it's random, he managed to amaze us with only 3 of what his lucky slots can provide: Grim Reaper's dance with his fearful scythe, the rifle as a quick and practical weapon, and last but not the least the ability to survive even the most cruel situations (ex: fighting a royal guard with only one arm), which is an ability in his lucky slots that we don't know much about except that it helped him survive his deadly fight with pitou (although it came with a cost)...All that, and we just know 3 or 4 of his slots (if we counted the mace), it thrills me to think of what the remaining 5 slots could possibly have.

Ok let's be honest, if you got your arm chopped off would you be able to defend yourself against a royal guard? Let alone the strongest one? And after the fight keep her so intrigued that she wants to fight you again? This guy did.

This man's strong bring him up in ranking guys!

18 Razor

He broke Hisoka’s fingers and destroyed his bungee gum just by throwing a volleyball at him and his power was split between the 14 devils. If he is at full power and going all out in combat he would destroy, I mean his mere presence scared the phantom troupe.

It took gon, killua and hiskoa to beat him...
in actual combat he'd dominate

If you have read and watched hunter x hunter well, you would know that Razor is at least more powerful than hisoka.

At least top 15, in my opinion just behind hisoka

19 Alluka Zoldyck

Why is she not at the top she can kill anyone instantly...

When she's used by somebody else, she's just the most powerful character ever. However, that makes her more of a powerful weapon, rather than a powerful character, since she needs to depend on someone else to use her powers. - Goku02

She is a little girl and isn't aware of her powers yet. If she was possibly older she would be higher up but she's just like the death note she needs someone to use her to be strong

Alluka is strong you're right she can kill anyone but she's not a hunter

20 Beyond Netero

Can beat Meruem

Surpassed Netero some years ago.

He was only a kid when he went to the dark continent yet he made it back alive. His father Issac Netero once said that there are 5 people in the world (I suppose he didn’t include the dark continent ) that are stronger than he is and without a doubt Beyond is one of them. I have to admit that Meruem is one of the strongest characters ever seen on this series/Manga since all he has to do is eat and he’ll get stronger however his mom obviously came from the dark continent and unlike him some others of his kind (Chimera Ants) actually stayed alive and had more enough food and yet when Beyind went to the dark continent he fought them and survived. Not only that but he still wants to go back there. I’m not saying Meruem is weak because let’s be real no one is that stupid. However all I’m saying is that Beyond is stronger.

21 Pariston Hill

Pariston is arguably one of the most intelligent characters of the series. He managed to rank first in all but one round of the election and eventually win the chairmanship, calculating every step from the very beginning. Pariston's abilities are yet to be revealed, but having been chosen as part of the Zodiacs, Vice-Chairman of the Hunters Association and a Triple Star Hunter, plus having joined Beyond Netero's party, he must be a capable and most likely a powerful Nen user. Despite often commenting on how weak he is, he actually has enough confidence in his strength to covertly threaten Cheadle, menacing he would seriously "make fun of her" if she were to create a boring Hunter Association. Furthermore, Ging speculated that he wanted to make the area still filled with Chimera Ants his own "playground".

Does anyone realise that his name is an anagram for Paris Hilton(almost)

The rival of Ging(currently for me the strongest nen user alive) but Ging,Hisoka and Pariston all hide their power so if ging and hisoka are up there Pariston should be there too. I say mid 1-10 range

22 Biscuit Krueger

Gon's and Killua's teacher in the greed island arc. She was able to easily defeat and opponent that took both Gon and Killua a whole day to conquer.

Because he strong

She had an incredibility that train up gon and killua to make strong to defeat oponent

Are you guys serious?
Biscuit is as stronger as youpi..
According to the official chart of togashi, she's ranked top 5 just below netero and the three royal guards!
This voting is very wrong!
I think they're voting their favorites not the real thing!

23 Komugi

Man...What a character!

Just look at his eyebrow. Real man have bushy eyebrow Brooo...

She's a blind girl who can play chess. She isn't strong she just didn't get demolished because she was good at a board game

I think its Komugi because she can easily make people fall for her. But her love for Meruem is different, though

24 Shaiapouf

He's a royal guard, what is he doing here so low, he should be at least top 10, definitely stronger then Hisoka and Gon & Killua he could even probably beat Pitou if it came down to it.

How is Leorio higher than the Royal Guard?

25 Uvogin
26 Leorio

He's god.

His dick is bigger than mines sooo

Leorio in my opinion IS AT LEAST STRONGER THAN KURAPIKA it just doesn't seem right putting him way back here

Leorio Just because he has a big dick

27 Killua Zoldyck Killua Zoldyck

Killua is on gons level why is he 38 on this list

Not only is he thicc he loves pedos

28 Botobai

What no he is not strong then kite

Closest to Netero in ability.

29 Nobunaga Hazama
30 Ging Freecss
31 Illumi Zoldyck

Illumi doesn't even try with opponents that are difficult to others. He smart, his nen ability is to far looked over, and the fact that he gets the respect from his father and grandfather. Plus chrollo hired him cause he knew he would get the job done. And if your someone that the mad man Hisoka looks to as a friend your pretty powerful.

32 Phinks

I personally think he is the strongest troupe member, he is No.2 in the arm wrestling and he killed a chimera captain with ONE PUNCH! and we still haven't seen his true power.

He is a strong enhancer, and he has a funny moment from time to time.

Not much is known about this man but he gotta be strong.

He strong fam

33 Morel

He is def same tier with the strongest of zodiacs (except gin ofc)

Is far stronger than hisoka illumi killua gon and maybe silva should be five

34 Beans
35 Knov

Should be at least top 20

This dude was one of the two most trusted hunters in the world by NETERO also his power effectively makes it impossible for him to die during a fight because he cn just open one of his portals and teleport away from there.

Definitely stronger than Pokkle, Knuckle, Shoot and he was up to par with Morel, he was one of the two most trusted hunters by Netero himself, How is he so low!

Smh y'all did him dirty with 49th place :(

36 Uvo

Uvo is strong Kurapika is just prepared how to beat him in a different kind of game.

Uvo is super-man damn! He is strong. Even stronger than bisky, killua,illumi gon and many other characters

I know that many think he's weak and Kurapika is strong since he's killed by kurapika. But actually he's stronger than Kurapika. He didn't knew anything about Kurapika, Kurapika knew much about him since he got help from Hisoka. Uvos big bang impact is just awesome! So powerful it cannot be blocked.

37 Machi

She's the strongest female of Phantom Troupe.

38 Nanika

"Your wish is my command"
Just a single word and everyone dies..

39 Shoot McMahon
40 Kalluto Zoldyck Kalluto Zoldyck

Not strong as killua

She is able to quickly dispatch an enemy using only paper though she is the weakest of the phantom troupe

41 Kuroro Lucifer

He is amazing woohooo

42 Wing

He has four eyes

43 Knuckle Bine

-Outsmarted cheetu-Punched and hurt Youpi-Fought Gon and Killua-Withstood two jajanken rocks from Gon-Adapts while in battle-Amazing reaction speed.(Easily in the top 20)

Has fought over 5000 oponents which makes him have a way lot more experience than the average hunter x hunter fighters, and relys mostly on his physical strength rather than nen if he somehow got really serious on nen attacks he would take Gon's jajanken to whole new other level. He is really strong but stupid

45 Zeno Zoldyck
