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

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

Limitless strength, the more he eats the stronger he becomes

The post-bomb meruem is so strong!

Best character development you will ever see in Hunter x Hunter with only a few episodes. His epic ending was surely satisfying although it still makes me cry. We will miss you and Komugi-san! T_T

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.

Well firstly, he is almost impossible to find, secondly he created worlds most expensive and probably hardest game ever made for his son to become stronger, thirdly as the anime said, Ging is so strong that he's in top 5 strongest hunter list

He created Greed Island (with his friends). That would require an enormous amount of nen, creativity and leadership (which is also power).

He detects Pariston's plan to expose his powers, but easily dumped that on his face haha

He knows a lot, and he uses it to his advantage.

Great people skills - the leader of the greed Island team, he also bribed Beyond's personnel to become his subordinate showing how cunning and filthy rich he is.

He can simulate/copy anyone's powers.

He is bound to conquer that Dark Continent. For sure!

Side note:

Alluka has infinite powers but she's not a hunter.

Gon will equal his dad but he has to grow up first.

Ging is the strongest

3 Netero

I don't think hisoka can beat this old man. Let's bring his ranking up.

Netero needs to be #1 on this list. Although he couldn't beat Meruem straight up. He Used his wits to fight him in a location where the flower wold ultimately kill Meruem. He went into that fight knowing he wouldn't come out alive. And if you think about it he killed Meruem twice. because the aftermath of the flower poisoned him again as well as 2 royal guards. Even in death he was victorious. R.I.P Netero.

Netero would make old man soup out of his opponents and serve it with raisins - INOMyStuff

Netero should be second, couldn't beat Meruem without a suicidal bomb that poisons him therefore Meruem is stronger, yet Ging shouldn't be stronger than him.

4 Chrollo

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.

This guy has who knows how many abilities in that conjured book of his. For all those people saying his victory against Hisoka was a fluke, Chrollo was simply using his powers and the setting to his advantage. He simply wanted a GUARANTEED victory. Hisoka is undoubtedly strong, but he is not as good as this monster.

Chrollo and Silva both fought before, and Silva said never to come close to a Phantom Troupe Member. Silva is stronger than most characters in the series. I think Chrollo is strong

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

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

Hisoka is awesome, he is scary and we never see how strong he is. He can tell how strong someone is going to become just by looking at them. So, he saw what Gon would become when he grew up and wanted that challenge. That means transformed Gon is what Hisoka wants to fight.

Never seen his full power and the fact he killed so many hunters from the association.

He is hot

6 Maha Zoldyck

Said that Netero only was able to SURVIVE a fight with him.

Should be in the top 5

In his prime he was probably the best out of everyone

Disregarding things like alluka/nanika and things from the dark continent, maha is probably the most powerful character (in his prime at least) as he was older than netero and still stronger than netero (prime), so the only characters who even have a chance at comparing are meruem (also but logic gone berserker form as he was said to be equal to the king) and possibly characters who's limits have yet to be seen, such as beyond netero (isaac's son), ging, and paristan.

7 Neferpitou

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

She's pretty badass!

Extremely powerful; even Gon-San had some trouble with her/him.

8 Killua

He can get an amazing dark aura. He is very fast and uses lightning ability.
Others are stronger too but he will grow up to be strong fighter and he cool dude.

Killua is stronger and smarter than Gon is, and I think with more training he would be even stronger than Hisoka

This guy is just epic. A great assassin. Pretty cool and good learner. He's just casual with his skateboard.

Killua is the best character in HunterxHunter. He totally swept the floor with those Chimera Ants.

9 Gon

He's the hero, but not yet the strongest considering that he's just a human boy. Definitely give him more time to develop

He has so much latent talent if he trained he'd be stronger than anyone else and that his technique is so adaptable it's pathetic. I would even be willing to say that Gon's technique is more adaptable than Hisoka's Bungee Gum.

He's a lot younger than most characters, and you see during the Heavens Arena arc that he can actually do something against Hisoka, which most characters were unable to do.

I think Gon is strong

10 Zeno

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

Zeno is one of the most powerful characters. The only characters who can overpower him are mereum,netero,ging,pitou(maybe) and gon after transformation. He's more powerful than chrollo, he said in 1v1 he win without any doubt, but if chrollo was trying to kill him that means he'd have planned everything to kill him (not a fight) then it would have been a "different story"

The Contenders

11 Feitan

Put your lotion to avoid Sunburn

His Pain Packer makes him extremely powerful.

His rising sun ability nearly killed the entire phantom troupe and we haven't even seen his full power...

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

12 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.

In what way is killua stringer than him?

For me, I think that the Zoldyck is the strongest family

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!

13 Kurapika Kurapika

Kurapika is Powerful more especially because of his intellect and resourcefulness however chain jail one of his strongest attacks is only usable on the phantom troupe and this puts him at a disadvantage

Anyone realized Kurapika's Emperor Time is very powerful since he will master all 6 categories of Nen.. I have a feeling he can take on all members of the Phantom Troupe alone.. And under certain circumstances, his Chain Jail is too powerful! Even Netero can be beaten if he's caught off guard.

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.

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

14 Isaac Netero

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.

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

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

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

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.

There is no way Killua is stronger than Illumi. He says he will kill Hisoka and Hisoka isn't someone you should mess with like than. Remember episode 19? Killua was scared so much from this guy. Illumi should at least be seventh.

No way killia is stronger than illumi

17 Kite

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!

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

18 Razor

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

Are u insane razor needs to be at least 6 he's stronger than hisoka

At least top 15, in my opinion just behind hisoka

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.

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

I get your pint but she is still very strong but she HAS to have Killua by her side otherwise she would die
she is powerful but l don't think she can command Nanika to do what she says and she does not engage in physical strength or combat unless commanded to THUS leaving her defenseless

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 Shaiapouf

How is Leorio higher than the Royal Guard?

24 Komugi

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



25 Uvogin
26 Leorio

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

He's god.

His dick is bigger than mines sooo

27 Botobai

What no he is not strong then kite

Closest to Netero in ability.

28 Killua Zoldyck Killua Zoldyck

Not only is he thicc he loves pedos

29 Nobunaga Hazama
30 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.

31 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

32 Ging Freecss
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 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.

36 Machi

She's the strongest female of Phantom Troupe.

37 Nanika

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

38 Shoot McMahon
39 Kalluto Zoldyck Kalluto Zoldyck

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

Not strong as killua

40 Wing

He has four eyes

41 Shizuku Shizuku
42 Kuroro Lucifer

He is amazing woohooo

43 Zeno Zoldyck
44 Cheadle
45 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
