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


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

He fought the old man who literally said he wasn't one of top Hunters anymore... - MrWonderful90

In my opinion hon is stronger than pitou and silva is stronger than killua and there are lots of pther strong characters

Limitless strength, the more he eats the stronger he becomes

The post-bomb meruem is so strong!


You don't become president of the hunter association for no reason

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.

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


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.

In anime when netero mentioned there are people who can defeat Meruem they showed Ging. He is also mentioned to be one of the 5 strongest nen users.

Why Ging? Because we don't know much about him! He is one of the most powerful hunters to ever exist! He has so much knowledge, and he is named the greatest hunter of all time! Eventually he will show his true power, and when that time comes everyone will know that he is the strongest!

We still know very little about Ging's character, but we know he is one of the most powerful hunters to ever exist. And showing that he is essentially a celebrity to all hunters who aspire to be like him, we can assume he has an extremely strong aura more effective of any hunter we have heard of before.


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

His intelligence and cunning are unmatched. Also, he's the only character who doesn't serve other than his own interest.

Hisoka is top 3, does anyone remember in the hunter exams that he TOOK OUT AN INSTRUCTOR AND THEN COMPLETED THE REST OF THE EXAM WITH AN OPEN WOUND!

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.


He may not be as much of a fan favorite as Hisoka, but he is stronger so he should be higher.

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.

He literally killed hisoka, hisoka only came back to life because his theory on post Morton nen was confirmed

The one who calmly plans out all their attacks. He is the best. A calm genius.


his nen can regenerate nearly any wound so you have to do an instant kill which is still very hard because she's so strong!
not even gon!

Why is she 6th? She is by far the strongest royal ant and the only person who could match her would be Netero

I love that comment that says "Gon beat her" ignoring how it was a one-time-only attack that Gon will never use again. Normal Gon is leagues below Pitou.

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


Okay so the person that said "I'm not saying Gon is better than Killua nor that Killua I better than Gon" Okay first that article is just no cause they didn't point out that Gon didn't have parents in the first place and that he just lived with his grandma and aunt. I believe Gon is stronger than Killua and yes this is a article too let people know. Just because they seem powerful doesn't mean they are. Okay lets get with the skills first, okay so lets start with Killua. Okay so Killua is a very fierce character he seems so "Powerful" by the comments but you will see that he doesn't really have experience. I don't mean that he is tortured or that he's family is a rich assassin family I mean combat skills. I mean like all the moves he has shown in the series are just fancy tricks and no I'm not saying Gon has more moves but I'm saying that Killua is just taught but Gon on the other hand learned from himself and yes he trained but he wasn't taught by family he taught himself he and was ...more

I'm not saying Gon is better than Killua nor that Killua is better than Gon but I admit that NOW Killua has great advantages over Him but yet almost has the same skills as Gon has I know that Killua didn't really like his childhood more even hates it and thus he doesn't want to go back home but yet that childhood Killua experience taught him a lot of skills making him a veteran in the face of battles and combats and the reason he has more knowledge and experience than Gon, but if Gon went to the same grueling experience as Killua had maybe just maybe he could have what Killua has that Gon himself does not have, experience, I have seen both Gon and Killua train at the same time with the same task and I know most of you also had, have you even seen their skills being so far apart from each other no because their potential are almost the same

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

Depends what Gon we're talking about here. Transformation Gon would definitely deserve to be here but I don't know about young Gon.


His powers are sooo cool and powerful! He may not be the strongest but he should be pretty high on the list!

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

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.

(Kinda spoilers)
While not the STRONGEST he is pretty strong. Right from the start of the show he was a trained assassin, but now he wields heavy yo yos that work with the fact he learned how to use lightning, not only that but now he has a technique called Godspeed that allowed him to hit Youpi several times due to being super fast. (Though a time limit). Not to mention immunity to poison.

Maha Zoldyck

He should be #1 on the list as Netero was the only one to survive a fight with him zeno even said "He's the only man to fight my grandpa and survive."

he should be number 1 netero could only survive a battle with him and netero is in number 2

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

Should be in the top 5


He uses his brain and is one of the strongest Zodylks or however you spell it

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

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

His knowledge ranks him Higher than Gon, and Hisoka.

The Contenders


Put your lotion to avoid Sunburn

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.

His Pain Packer makes him extremely powerful.

Also not to mention his pain packer has other forms which could be far more deadly.


Can easily take any phantom throupe member 1 on 1, also one of the few known specialists.

Kurapika is creative and intelligent in crafting his abilities

He should be higher, because some said that both Killua and kurapika surpassed go so...

He literally outsmarted chrollo, is way smarter than gon and killua. His problem is that he gets a bit too reckless when it comes to spiders but other than that he should be 1st or 2nd at least

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

Even killua said he is damn strong than him but killua himself is no 5 while he is12


He should be way higher than this. Killua, Knuckle, Shoot, Morel, and Meleoran all fought him and they still couldn't take him down. The only reason he died was because he was diseases because he saved Meruens life.

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!


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.

Should be top 10- list is ever inaccurate


It took three of the strongest characters to just catch a ball he threw!

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


Legends say he fought off all three royal guards with his ballsack alone

Insane beast strongest of all characters is known to be so strong it is unbearable how overpowered he is

Tonga can deadass kill meruem with his poison if he wanted too

MOST OP character in hxh his poisons could kill all of the CA in no time also heard he beat maha


he's waay stronger than killua and gon he should definitely be higher

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!


Y r people sleeping on Pouf? He is so strong, the only thing is he is way too loyal, however that loyalty also makes him one of the strongest in my opinion

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?

Alluka Zoldyck

Alluka cause she can kill anybody lucky for her Killua is a great brother and honestly if Alluka went to a killing monster she would be on top thank fully she isn't cause if she is she would be a straight up killing machine.

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.

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

Biscuit Krueger

why is she so low she would destroy killua and gon together heck even add hisoka

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


- Leorio punched Ging.
- Ging is stated to be the strongest.
- Leorio defeated Ging.
- Leorio #1
- Ging #2

Because leorio is jesus

Vote to number 1

The strongest

Zeno Zoldyck
Beyond Netero

If he has surpassed netero (netero is the strongest human nen user) then he should be number 1# or 2#

Can beat Meruem

Stronger than Netero, his father.

He may outgrow his father

Illumi Zoldyck

Should be higher, in the anime he threaten to kill hisoka and hisoka said he was kidding.

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.

Who is this again?
