Summary:Hisoka (ヒソカ, Hisoka ) is one of Hunter × Hunter's main antagonists. Gon, Killua, Kurapika, and Leorio first encounter Hisoka during the Hunter Exam where he is known as the most dangerous person among all of the examinees. Hisoka registered for the Hunter Exam before, however, he was thrown out because he tried to kill one of the members of the examination committee. After the exam, Gon and Killua go to the Heaven's Arena to hone their skills only to find that Hisoka had followed them. Hisoka prevents Gon and Killua's entry to the 200th floor of Heaven's Arena until they have learned Nen, so that they are not permanently harmed by other floor fighters eager to perform an "initiation" ritual. Hisoka joins the Phantom Troupe in order to get a chance to battle the leader, Kuroro Lucifer, but the his abilities are neutralized by Kurapika's 'Judgement Chain'. Hisoka travels to 'Greed Island' in order to find a man who can remove the chain's effects. There, he assists Gon and Killua in a deadly dodgeball game. Hisoka is one of the strongest characters of the series. He is voiced by Hiroki Takahashi.
isoka (ヒソカ, Hisoka) is a character from the series Hunter × Hunter by Yoshihiro Togashi.
|Created by||Yoshihiro Togashi|
|Eye Color||Yellow (?)|
|Blood Type||Type A|
BackgroundHisoka's past is never explored in Hunter × Hunter. His character is an enigma that speaks not of his past because he is uninterested in it. Hisoka is a second time examinee, being disqualified for attempting to kill an examiner in his first exam.
It is stated during his battle with Gon on the 200th floor that Hisoka chewed "pansy gum" a lot as a child but because of his family being poor had to chew it after it had become flavourless often. This is apparently why his nen ability is what it is.
PersonalityHisoka is extremely confident in his own abilities. Along with his confidence, he is entirely self-interested and does what he pleases as long as it benefits him in some way. Hisoka temporarily joins the Genei Ryodan, a group of vagabonds that partake in criminal activities, so he can have the chance to fight against the group's leader. Hisoka seems to have an occasional interest
with Machi, although it is hard to see whether it is genuine, given Hisoka's unpredictability. Hisoka lusts for the thrill of killing powerful fighters in combat, and it is strongly implied that he receives sexual gratification from the act as well. In order for them to grow to their full potential (and for the pleasure of killing them later), Hisoka allows the main protagonists of Hunter × Hunter to live during situations where in he is able to easily take their lives.
Hisoka also has an apperance similar to that of a magician, or sometimes considered a clown. One his right cheek there is a purple star, and on the other there is a green tear drop. Up until the OVAs, Hisoka's clothing have decorations on them.
In terms of physical abilities, Hisoka as been noted as both incredibly fast and strong, ranking 3rd in the phantom troupe in terms of physical strenght (which is composed of 13 of the most powerful nen user seen throughout the series) and fast enough to easily dodge continous attacks from Gon without moving from the position he was in (his true speed and strength has not yet been shown).
Nen AbilitiesHisoka's nen abilities have served him well on numerous occasions, and especially compliment his ominous nature. While fighting with Kastro, he once fooled everyone by controlling his chopped arms with nen. Hisoka uses two versatile Hatsu, both in and out of combat:
- Nen Ability: Texture Surprise (ドッキリテクスチャ 「薄っぺらな嘘」), lit. "Flimsy Lies" Best Translation: "Deceitful Texture"
After his fight with Kastro in Heaven's Arena, it is revealed that the spider tattoo on Hisoka's back was a fake, made out of cloth. In Yorknew City, Hisoka also changed the words on the prediction written for him by Chrollo's stolen Lovely Ghostwriter ability. This was in order to fool the Phantom Troupe into thinking that he had been forced to betray the Troupe's abilities by Kurapika's Judgment Chain. He did a similar thing on Greed Island to his Book, in order to fool Gon and Killua into thinking that he had not met any Troupe members there. He also uses this to make both his cards and a cloth appear and disappear.
- Nen Ability: Bungee Gum (バンジーガム 「伸縮自在の愛」), lit. "Elastic Love" Best Translation: "Phantasy Gum"
- In the Latin-American dub, Hisoka speaks with a French accent and his name is pronounced as "Isoka" (with a silent H).
Genei Ryodan/ KumoThe Phantom Troupe (幻影旅団, Genei Ryodan , lit. Phantom Brigade. Spider) is the name for a gang of thieves. The group consists of 13 members, each with a numbered tattoo of a spider on their body. Those wishing to join the group can do so by killing a member, thereby replacing them. If a vacancy opens due to a member dying of other causes, the leader of the group, Kuroro Lucifer, is responsible for finding a replacement member. Although they mainly steal and kill, they occasionally do philanthropic work.
Kuroro LuciferKuroro Lucifer is a character from Hunter x Hunter anime and Hunter x Hunter manga created by Yoshihiro Togashi. Kuroro Lucifer childhood place is in Meteor City (Ryuuseigai Falling Star Street), the city is city of rubbish disposal, inhabited by exiles. With six others, he formed Genei Ryodan Clan and left Meteor City. The Genei ryodan or the spider eventually have formation with 13 members, including Kuroro Lucifer as the head. He states that as a Spider he is the head and the rest are the limbs who regard the orders from the head as a top priority.It is carried out by skill, not life or death which means that If he happens to die anyone of the remaining members can take his place as the leader.Also depending on the situation sometimes the head is less important then the limbs. He goe on to say that his orders are top priority however it does not mean that his life is top priority for he is also a member of the spider and the one to live is not the individual but the spider as a whole. Genei Ryodan known as a group of bandit who like steal rare items.As a leader of Genei Ryodan, Kuroro Lucifer was highly respected by its members. He is very charismatic , calm and smart in a battle.
Kuroro Lucilfer (クロロ=ルシルフル, Kuroro Rushirufuru), commonly misspelled as Chrollo Lucifer, is a character in the manga and anime series Hunter × Hunter by Yoshihiro Togashi, and the leader of the Phantom Troupe. He currently left the Troupe, because he lost his nen powers resulting from Kurapika's Judgement Chain.
BackgroundVery little is known about Kuroro's past except for the fact that he originated from Meteor City (流星街 Ryuuseigai). Meteor City is a junkyard city inhabited by outcasts. People who live there do not exist in any official records, and the existence of the city itself is known to a very few people. Sometime in the past, he formed the Phantom Troupe with six other Meteor City residents and left the city. Later, the group was joined by more members, in accordance with Chrollo's idea of a group comprising of exactly 13 members, including himself.
PersonalityChrollo Lucilfer is a calm, handsome young man, coming across as intelligent and charismatic. He seems to be a born leader, able to hold the Phantom Troupe together despite the volatile personalities that make up the group, and well versed in strategies.
During his time in Yorknew City, he uses his calm presence and communication abilities to assume another personality in order to gain Neon Nostrade's trust.
The only people Chrollo seems to care about are his fellow members in the Phantom Troupe. When Chrollo reads Neon's prophecy which contained Uvogin's death, he cries for him. Later on he orchestrates a massacre of Mafia members as a requiem to his fallen comrade. Besides that, he shows no fear of his own death, even anticipating it. Another Hunter, Senritsu, states that his heartbeat sounded as if he was living with death,
- He tries to use his Nen
- He communicates directly with any member of the Phantom Troupe. (Kuroro is able to talk to Hisoka after Hisoka removed the fake spider tattoo on his back, proving that he had been deceiving the Phantom Troupe all along. He was never a true member.)
Chrollo is either the seventh strongest in physical power or the Third of the Troupe; one of the assassins hired by the mafia community even noted that he could have easily ripped off Neon Nostrade's head if he had used his full strength. Chrollo is a quick thinker and very able-bodied. His ability to fend off the attacks of the two most powerful members of the Zoldyck family of assassins at once is proof of his fighting skill and strength. During their fight, the only injury that he recieved was a cut on his left cheek. Zeno states that he would undoubtedly defeat Kuroro in a one-versus-one fight, but remarks that it would be a different matter if Chrollo was truly trying to kill him, instead of trying to steal his abilities. His vast book of abilities also gives him great insight into the abilities of others in combat and strategy (such as when he deduced Kurapika having the ability to impose rules on others with his Judgment Chain).
Chrollo's nen category is Specialization, and is ability is a combination of the other five types, but in a way that no normal nen-user can use. In the manga Zeno states that he was first a conjurer, this may be true since he would have to first conjure his book and set certain rules and restrictions to it to make it as powerful as it is. Chrollo's Nen Ability is called Skill Hunter (スキルハンター - "盗賊の極意") lit, Essence of Theft. It allows him to steal the Nen Abilities of other people to use them as his own using a book known as the "Bandit's Secret." The theft victim, of course, no longer has access to his ability. The theft happens under strict conditions:
- He must witness the nen ability in action with his eyes.
- He must ask about the ability and be answered by the victim.
- His victim's palm must touch the handprint on the cover of Bandit's Secret.
- All of the above must be done within an hour.
Known Nen Abilities in the Book
- The ability to teleport a person back and forth from one place to another, without that person's consent. He uses it on Nobunaga when he is about to attack Hisoka, as quarrels inside the Spider are supposed to be either solved verbally or, if no solution can be found, by coin flipping.
- Indoor Fish:
- A conjured fish that can only survive in a completely sealed room. The fish looks like a skeleton and feeds on human flesh. While the person is being fed on, they neither feel pain or lose blood, and will stay conscious despite being mortally wounded. Once the fish disappears, the usual effects of the wounds manifest, often killing the victim.First used when fighting an assassin hired by Renji.
- Fun Fun Cloth:
- An ability owned by the Owl, a member of ShadowBeasts. This cloth is conjured, and can increase and decrease in size according to the user's will. Whatever is covered in the cloth decreases in size until it fits in the palm of a hand. The user can make it go back to its original size by letting it out of the bag. People can also be shrunk this way, without being injured.Kuroro obtains this ability while the Troupe tortured the Owl after they captured him to find out how he hid the auction pieces they intended to steal.
- Lovely Ghost Writer (ラブリーゴーストライター 「天使の自動筆記」), lit. Automatic Writing Angel:
- An ability stolen from Neon Nostrade. It creates accurate predictions of future events. The user cannot predict their own future. The ability requires:
- A Person's Full Name
- Their Date of Birth
- Their Blood Type
- The target person writes the required information on a piece of paper, then hands it to the abilities user, who then calls the "Lovely Ghost Writer", a sort of green monster that attaches to the user's arm and moves his pen. The user does not know what he writes, being in a trance-like state.
- The prophecies take the form of poetry, composed of 4 or 5 quatrains each corresponding to every week of the month. The first stanza is always about something that has already happened.
- Neon refuses to read her own predictions, feeling it would spoil her ability, but Chrollo
- has his predictions read out by the addressees, but some of them proved to be inaccurate due to it being read right in front of Kuroro. If the person does not know the full information needed they can not have their written hence the reason why Feitan was the only member without a prophecy.
Summary:Bonolenov (ボノレノフ, Bonorenofu ) dresses partially in bandages and looks like a mummy. These bandages cover up a mass number of holes throughout his body. During the chimera ant arc, he was seen fighting with the rest of the Phantom Troupe against the chimera ants. Very little is known about his personality and reasons for joining the Troupe, but in the fight with the chimera ants he displays a mocking and confident attitude. His physical power ranks eighth among the Troupe, and he is the thirteenth Troupe member. Bonolenov is a descendant of the Gyudondond, a small wild tribe that was chased out of their lands by development. When males of the Gyudondond tribe reach the age of three, they are circumcised and needles are inserted in various parts of their body. Over time, these needles are replaced with thicker and thicker sticks, and the holes are stabilized with bamboo stalks or stones. Using these holes, Gyudondond males are able to create a variety of sounds. They are called "Bap," the dancing warriors, and fulfill the role of shamans and performers in their tribe. Before combat, they use their bodies to play songs of battle. The Gyudondond believe that the more beautiful a sound that is played, the greater the spirit it can summon.

Nen/Abilities- Battle Cantabile: Bonolenov plays music through the holes on his skin during battle, with different songs creating different Nen effects, such as the transformation of his own body or the conjuration of objects. Two different effects of his ability have been shown: the Prologue and the
- The Prologue allows him to conjure warrior gear onto his body, along with a spear.
- The Jupiter allows him to conjure a giant boulder (with the appearance of the planet of Jupiter) and crush his enemies.
His mocking and confident attitude could affect the way in which he battles.
Summary:Feitan (フェイタン) is attired in what one would expect from a bandit—dark clothes partnered with a skullhead scarf that covers his mouth. Feitan seldom speaks, but when he does, it is full of grammatical errors; giving the appearance that he is not speaking in his native tongue. During the Phantom Troupe's fight with Chimera Ants, Feitan reverted back to his native language which was shown with Chinese characters. He is one of the original members hailing from Meteor City. After Feitan's victory over Zazan in Meteor City, he has been granted temporary control over the Phantom Troupe. Feitan is an assassin down to his core, and is quite skilled at his profession. His movement is incredibly fast; Feitan is able to leave afterimages of his body due to his rapid steps. He wields an umbrella that conceals both a sword and a gun that can fire at the metal tip for a surprise attack. Feitan is the fifth strongest in physical power of the Troupe.
He has the nen ability called "Pain Packer" which basically transforms his injuries he has received from his enemy into an attack. The more pain he had received the stronger the type of Pain Packer released. Currently, only "Scorching Sun" has been revealed. Which basically a miniature sun that burns anyone around him disregarding even alies, as shown by rest of the Phantom Troupe fleeing from the scene when he uses this ability. Only Feitan is unaffected by the attack inflicted upon by the type of "Pain Packer" pressumably because of the armor formed by his ability. He is voiced by Meredith Taylor-Parry in the English dub.He is a joker.

Feitan (フェイタン) is attired in what one would expect from a bandit—dark clothes partnered with a skullhead scarf that covers his mouth. Feitan is a member of the infamous Phantom Troupe, and is one of the many antagonists in Hunter × Hunter by Yoshihiro Togashi. Feitan's first language most likely Chinese, as he is rather proficient in speaking it. He is often seen in the anime and manga reading Trevor Brown art books. Feitan appears to be left-handed and seemingly ambidextrous as he is seen holding his sword in his left hand until it is broken and then switches to using his right hand. When Chrollo used Neon's ability to predict the members of the Troupes' fortunes; Feitan's prediction was not revealed, along with Phinks' and Kortopi's due to lack of information since Feitan doesn't know the date of his birth. After defeating Zazan, the self-proclaimed queen of the Chimera Ants, he became de facto leader over the Phantom Troupe, until Chrollo gets his nen powers back.

People who live there do not exist in any official records, and the existence of the city itself is known to very few people. It is also stated in manga and anime that the original members of the Phantom Troupe had something to do with the bad blood between the Mafia and the Meteor born people of Shooting Star.

Amongst the Troupe, he is the fifth strongest in physical power, and well capable of snapping the necks of his viticms. He is also capable of moving at extreme speeds, going so quicly he leaves after images. Kalluto commented that he couldn't count the number of feints that Feitan used against his battle with Zazan and was astounded at how fast Feitan was, stating that it was at another level. Zazan even wondered what he was as he speed rose during their entire battle.
SwordmanshipFeitan has even shown that he is fully capable of using a sword in combat, hidden in his umbrella.
Feitan keeps his cane sword disgused as an umbrella. When it is sheath, the Umbrella in turn is revealed to be a firearm.
Nen AbilityFeitan's category has never been revealed, but his special ability is called Pain Packer, in which causes great pain to his victims. All of the damage that he has received in battle is converted into high temperatures and is emitted into the air in an attack called the Rising Sun, the emitted aura is turned into a miniature sun that burns the target, this attack has a very wide radius which ensures his opponent doesn't escape.

He is good friends with Uvogin whom he knew long before the Phantom Troupe was founded.Nobunaga is said by Franklin to be more effective fighting on his own, contrary to Uvogin who gets stronger if he fights for the sake of others. this often causes the two to get to each other's throats, despite this however the two bring out the best in each other during combat.

Pakunoda (パクノダ) exudes an air of self-confidence that can be intimidating to others. Pakunoda is fully loyal to Chrollo, and even goes against the Phantom Troupe in order to help him. She was killed by Kurapika's Judgement Chain in the climax of the Phantom Troupe arc by violating the restrictions Kurapika placed upon her, thus becoming the second Phantom Troupe member to die. Pakunoda is one of the original Phantom Troupe from Meteor City. Her physical strength is 11th in the Troupe.
Pakunoda is one of the original members of the Phantom Troupe along with Franklin, Machi, Feitan, Chrollo Lucilfer, Nobunaga Hazama, and Uvogin that originated from Meteor City (流星街 Ryuuseigai). It is a junkyard city inhabited by outcasts that refuse to be part of society. People who live there do not exist in any official records, and the existence of the city itself is known to very few people. It is also stated in the manga and anime that original members of the Phantom Troupe had something to do with the bad blood between the Mafia and the Meteor born people of Shooting Star. Why the Troupe left the city is a mystery. Later, the group was joined by more members, in accordance with Chrollo's idea of a group comprising of exactly thirteen members, including himself.
Nen AbilitiesPakunoda is the Phantom Troupe's Specialist, and has a very unique abilty. Her nen ability is called Memory Bomb, in which has the power to read other people's thoughts. She can find out the opponent's nen ability or in situations requiring some form of extortion or blackmail and share information. Shalnark even stated that Pakunoda's abilities are a rare breed.
- Memory Bomb (「記憶弾」,lit, Recollection Bullet): Pakunoda is able to read the conscious thoughts of any person she is in physical contact with and can extract memories by asking specific questions. Attempting to create false information is impossible, since Pakunoda can extract her target's purest memories. The information she collects is highly useful in exposing weaknesses and secrets, especially in finding out the opponent's nen ability or in situations requiring some form of extortion or blackmail. Pakunoda's ability can also be used to see the recent past of an object. Pakunoda also has the ability to share her memories by shooting them into another person's head using a revolver and materialized Nen Bullets. This is not a combat ability, and does no damage. However if she shoots someone with a memory of their own, it is erased indefinitely. Before the only other person than Pakunoda that knew about her ability to share information to others was Chrollo.

Summary:Ubogin (ウヴォーギン, Uvōgin , romanized as Ubolgin in japanese version) was one of the original members of the Troupe from the Meteor City. Out of all of the Phantom Troupe, he was the strongest in terms of raw physical power. Uvogin was so strong, direct hits from bullets, sniper bullets, and even anti-tank rockets will do no visible damage to him. Like all of the Troupe, Uvogin never hesitated to kill and particularly enjoyed combat against skilled opponents. Although he preferred to fight alone, Ubogin became stronger when fighting with a partner because he fought better when there was someone else to protect (although he would never admit this). Seeking revenge on Kurapika for capturing him after his battle with the Shadow Beasts, Uvogin tracked Kurapika to the hotel where Neon Nostrade and the rest of her bodyguards were staying. They fought one-on-one in a small canyon on the outskirts of Yorknew City. Kurapika eventually captured Uvogin with his Chain Jail, and questioned him about the location and abilities of the other Phantom Troupe members. Uvogin refused to answer any questions, only telling Kurapika, "Kill me." Finally, Kurapika pierced Uvogin's chest with the Judgement Chain ability, giving Uvogin the condition that he must answer all questions truthfully. Kurapika once again asks Uvogin the location of the other Troupe members, to which Uvogin only smiled and said to Kurapika "Go to hell, you bastard." Kurapika's Judgement Chain pierces Uvogin's heart, instantly killing him. Uvogin is buried in an unmarked grave at the site of their battle. He was formerly the eleventh member of the Troupe.
BackgroundUbogin is one of the original members along with Feitan, Machi, Franklin, Nobunaga, Pakunoda and Chrollo are the first Troupe member that comes from Meteor City. It is a junkyard city inhabited by outcasts that refuse to be part of society. People who live there do not exist in any official records, and the existence of the city itself is known to very few people. It is also stated in the manga and anime that the original members of the Phantom Troupe had something to do with the bad blood between the Mafia and the Meteor born people of Junkyard City. Why the Troupe left the city is a mystery. Later, the group was joined by more members, in accordance with Chrollo's idea of a group comprising of exactly thirteen members, including himself.
PersonalityUbogin was your typical Enhancer, that he was determined, head-strong, and simple. Sometimes he was a unrespectful character, often saying unrespectful words. He always rushed into battle without planning, and like all of the Phantom Troupe, he never hesitated to kill and particularly enjoyed to fight against skilled opponents. Ubogin himself is devoid of emotions towards anyone outside of the Genei Ryodan , and he had even stated to Kurapika that when killing someone, he feels no remorse. Uvogin did however have a good relationship with Nobunaga, as they viewed each other as best friends, and even brought the best of each other in combat. He, like all of the other members of the Troupe, was very loyal to Chrollo and the Genei Ryodan , and had never bothered to reveal their location to Kurapika resulting in a swift death.
AppearanceUvogin is the tallest member of the Phantom Troupe, and the most muscular one too. Uvo has very long hair, with thick sideburns, and chest hair all over his body. Uvogin's clothing all seemed to have been made from a skinned animal of some kind, and his own boots are also made form the same material. During the Phantom Troupe founding, Uvo previously had an afro, and never had his skinned animal clothes. Uvo's spider tattoo is seen on his back, with the number 11.
Yorknew City ArcUvogin first appears with the rest of the Phantom Troupe during their meeting, where Chrollo discusses their plans for the day. He tells everyone that they are going to take every item at the underground auction. Uvogin tells Chrollo that if he's serious since they have the entire Mafia chasing after them. Chrollo then replies if he's scared, but Uvogin tells him that he's only excited. The Troupe then get ready for the auction. Uvogin, Machi, Feitan, Shalnark, Nobunaga, Shizuku, and Franklin head to the auction, while the rest stay behind. The Phantom Troupe arrive at the underground auction, and kill all the guests, but they find out that the items are gone. The rest of the Troupe are forced to leave empty handed, and Uvo phones Chrollo on how they were unable to find the missing items. Uvogin speculates that there might be a Judas amongst them, but Chrollo replies that the Mafia would have to offer them something that they don't already have, and that reason was why there was no auction items was because they neede to be more cautious this time. Uvo tells Chrollo that before they killed the auctioneer, he said that one of the 10 Dons sent one a Shadow Beast named Owl earlier to retrieve the auction goods. Chrollo replies that the 10 Dons by now should realize that are dealing with nen, since they are missing their guest at the auction, and are most likely to send one of the Shadow Beasts after them. Uvo and the rest of the Troupe are later assigned to lure out the said Shadow Beast, by Chrollo, to hopefully find the missing auction items. They all head to the desert and wait for the mafia community to strike. The community, who have found out were they are located, offer them a choice. Uvogin tells the others, that he'll take care of the mafia community, and the Shadow Beasts. Uvogin quickly kills all of the members from the community with ease. Kurapika and the rest of the Nostrade bodyguards watch the carnage from afar, when four Shadow Beasts, and elite nen-using soldiers under the direct command of the Mafia's 10 Dons, arrive to deal with the Troupe. The four Shadow Beasts, Worm, Leech, Rabid Dog, and Porcupine engage in battle with Uvo. Worm however is the first to be killed, by Uvo's Big Bang Impact. Though Uvo does kills one of the Shadow Beasts, he lets his guard down for Rabid Dog to attack. Rabid Dog paralyzes Uvogin with neurotoxin from his fangs after which, Leech infects Uvogin with parasitic leeches. Uvo is then paralyzed from the neck down by the poison, and not only that he has to worry about Leech's leeches. But luckily for him, he is able to use his teeth and lungs, and bites a pourshin Leech's head, thus killing him. Uvo then kills Rabid Dog, by spitting out a small fragment of Leech's skull, and then releases a loud sound wave from this mound, and kills Porcupine. At this moment, Kurapika takes advantage of Uvogin's paralysis, and captures him with the Chain Jail ability, quickly driving away from the canyon with the other bodyguards. Uvogin is than interrogated by Daltzorne, to reveal the information about the other Spiders.
Uvo however is not scared by Daltzorne's threats, and offers him a choice in sparing their lives. Daltzorne refuses Uvogin's offers, and leaves him die in the hands of the Community. The Spiders kill the remaining Shadow Beasts, disguise themselves as Mafia members again, and rescue Uvogin, killing Daltzorne. Kurapika and the other bodyguards escape and leave the base and go into hiding. Seeking revenge on Kurapika for capturing him after his battle with the Shadow Beasts, Uvogin tracked Kurapika to the hotel where Neon Nostrade and the rest of her bodyguards were staying. They fought one-on-one in a small canyon on the outskirts of Yorknew City. Kurapika eventually captures Uvogin with his Chain Jail, and questions him about the location and abilities of the other Phantom Troupe members. Uvogin refuses to answer any questions, only telling Kurapika, "Kill me." Finally, Kurapika pierced Uvogin's chest with the Judgement Chain ability, giving Uvogin the condition that he must answer all questions truthfully. Kurapika once again asks Uvogin the location of the other Troupe members, to which Uvogin only smiles and tells him to go to hell. Kurapika's Judgement Chain pierces Uvogin's heart, instantly killing him. Uvogin is buried in an unmarked grave at the site of their battle.
CombatUvogin's physical strength is the strongest amongst the Phantom Troupe, and is best suited for close-melee combat. Although he is stronger when fighting with a partner as he has someone to protect (although he doesn't like to admit it). His overall strength is so strong, that direct hits from bullets, sniper cartilages, and even anti-tank rockets will do no visible damage to him. His very own shrieks can even kill someone, if the person is very close to him.
Nen AbilityEditUvogin is in the Enhancement category, with his most powerful attack called the Big Bang Impact. His Enhancer skills can greatly increase his physical attack and defense. He's also capable of healing himself very easily from the most lethal attacks. Nobunaga even said that Uvogin has mastered the Enhancement category to the fullest extent (100%).
