Due to his first spat with Kurapika, as well as the test on the way to the navigator’s cabin, it seems that he has a sensitivity for those who do not take him seriously or treat him with disrespect.

18. Alluka Zoldyck

Before Alluka’s formal introduction as a Hunter x Hunter Characters, Silva refers to her as a dark and uncontrollable child.

He claims that Alluka has no soul because of the circumstances of her birth, and cannot feel emotions.

However, once reunited with her closest brother Killua, Alluka displays an affectionate, simple, and lovable personality.

17. Chrollo Lucilfer

Chrollo Lucilfer is a Hunter x Hunter Characters who is calm, cool, intelligent, and charismatic, as he seems to be a born leader and able to hold the Phantom Troupe together despite the volatile personalities of its members.

While he is a very capable strategist, Chrollo is also very confident in his own fighting abilities as well as in the other members of the Spider.

He always has at least two people with him, which is why Hisoka was unable to fight him.

16. Ging Freecss

Ging has a shy and stubborn personality, to the point that he only wants Gon to meet him alone and claims that it would be cowardly of Gon to bring a friend to meet him, causing one of his friends to wonder if he is afraid of crowds.

Judging by his actions at the New Hunter Chairman Election to ensure Netero’s will be carried out, he seems to respect the late Chairman considerably. 

Ging Freecss

Ging is also rather volatile, yet extremely intelligent. In spite of his ability to make flawless plans years in advance, he occasionally acts without knowing why, surprising even himself.

15. Jed

After seeing his comrades’ death at the hand of Netero and seeing so many hardships on earth because of the Hunters, Jed was consumed by his hate toward the Hunters and believed strongly that all Hunters are evil.

His hate was so strong that it revived him after his death at the hand of Netero.


Despite being consumed with hate, Jed was shown to care about his comrades as when he felt the death of Gaki, he cried and vowed that he wouldn’t let it be in vain.

14. Feitan Photos

Feitan is the Phantom Troupe’s interrogator, being very proficient in the art of torture.

His speech usually consists of few words and poor grammar; when angered, he speaks a language of unknown origin, different from the common language of the world.

He is cold-natured but very loyal to Chrollo Lucilfer and the Phantom Troupe as a whole.

13. Shaiapouf

Shaiapouf posited himself as the calmest and rational of the three Royal Guards, often speaking about the importance of logic and reasoning, more than his emotions.

However, his intense devotion to the Chimera Ant King clouded his judgment. He held a preconceived absolute ideal to live up to, with no room for amendment.


Pouf also held the King to a similarly impossible ideal, manifesting in mad fanatical monologues and treacherous action when it appeared that his lord was being led astray.

12. Komugi

Komugi is a Hunter x Hunter Characters who was rather childish, clumsy and simple-minded, with a tendency to speak too much. Her manner of speaking was informal and ungrammatical. She lacked common knowledge at times, yet was brilliant in Gungi, and enjoyed the game immensely.

She tended to constantly talk herself down but was friendly and polite towards others. When she was attacked by a hawk, she refrained from calling for help for fear of inconveniencing others.


Furthermore, in order not to become a burden for her family, she resolved to commit suicide should she ever lose a game.

11. Basho

Basho has a casual attitude and is rather outgoing and talkative. He also has some sense of humor, laughing off Kurapika’s brutal request to never speak to him again.

Although he is confident in himself, he can understand when he has no way of winning a confrontation. He believes that life should be lived to the fullest.


However, he does not criticize Kurapika’s willingness to forfeit his life for his cause, even if he does not agree with it. He has a habit of whistling when he is impressed.
