** A more subtle example; Kurapika noted how the other members of the troupe laid back letting Uvogin handle the mafia, noting how they showed trust in Uvo's strength. They were non chalantly playing cards at the time. ''The mafia were insects to them and there wasn't a thing they could do to stop them.''

-->'''[[TranquilFury Kurapika]]:''' Consider this a warning. First, a real Phantom Troupe tattoo has the member's number on his back. Second, they don't bother counting how many they've killed. Third, never mention the troupe again. If you do, I'll kill you.

* Even before Nen was introduced as a power, the series had a high amount of awesome. During the final fight of the Hunter exam for example, Gon displays his {{Determinator}} skills in his fight against [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Hanzo]] -- by fighting on even after the guy breaks his arm.
* Killua proves once again that he is capable of curb-stomping just about anyone during his fight against a triplet of rival aspiring hunters in the fourth part of the Exams. He defeats all of them without getting a scratch.
* Also notable are a few moments from the third part of the Hunter Exams. The heroes face off against a group of former criminals, each of which trying to challenge them in a different way.
** Kurapika and Killua both [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomp]] their respective opponents.
** Gon tricks his opponent into defeat.
** And Leorio uses his skills as a doctor to force Kurapika's opponent (who [[spoiler: was playing dead) to give up.]]
** And Tompa gets one for being a [[spoiler: bastard full of Schadenfreude and getting away with it. At least up until the next part of the exams.]]
* At one point of the Exams, the group, plus Tompa, get to the final obstacle: choosing between leaving three people behind by taking the short path, or choosing the long path that would allow them to go all of them together. After a very long debate between Leorio and Tompa (also discovering that Tompa was planning to wait untill all of them would off the others), Gon managed to convince the group to vote for the long way. The solution? [[spoiler:[[TakeAThirdOption They chose the long path and made a hole in the wall to take the shortcut]]]]. Even the examinator was impressed.
* Gon breaking Illumi's arm.



* [[spoiler: Gon annihilating Pitou in just two hits.]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/hunter_x_hunter/v28/c306/9.html First]]. [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/hunter_x_hunter/v28/c306/10.html Comes]]. [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/hunter_x_hunter/v28/c306/12.html Rock]].
** [[spoiler: Following that, Gon ''stabbing through Pitou's torso with his own sliced off arm.'']] Can you say [[BadassAdorable GARmoe]]?



* Kurapika using his brand new Nen chains to - not deflect, not dodge - but CATCH bullets fired at him during his first Hunter assignment.
* For a villainous example: Uvogin is paralyzed from the neck down and faced with three highly skilled, super-powered assassins. What does he do? [[spoiler: He ''bites the the top half of the first assassin's head off'', spits it out with such force that it shoots right through the second assassin, and then yells so loud he explodes the third one's brain.]]
** A more subtle example; Kurapika noted how the other members of the troupe laid back letting Uvogin handle the mafia, noting how they showed trust in Uvo's strength. They were non chalantly playing cards at the time. ''The mafia were insects to them and there wasn't a thing they could do to stop them.''



** To clarify, Uvogin, who was established as TheJuggernaut for most of his appearance, was practically manhandled and taunted by Kurapika throughout their fight.
-->'''Kurapika:''' (''after Uvogin punched him into a wall'') I have another question. [[NoSell Was that punched the best you got?]]
** Even though Uvo did end up gettting his ass handed to him by Kurapika, the way he went out shows just how badass he is. Even after Kurapika set the Judgement chain on him and asked where the other troupe members are, [[GoOutWithASmile Uvo merely scoffed]] [[FaceDeathWithDignity and said "You know what you can do with that question? Idiot."]]

** Shizuku vs Pike. Pike has Shizuku wrapped in his web and is about to take her to Zazan. So Shizuku strips out of her clothes to get out and proceeds to pummel him. Then she uses Deme-Chan to suck out all of the blood in his body from his wounds.



** The introduction to Nen (for both Killua and the audience) wasn't shoddy either. Killua was ready to knock him out with one chop, just as he had done with almost all of his arena opponents beforehand. But when he does it, Zushi not only gets back up, but he changes stances to try and use Nen on the offensive. And kept doing it every time he was chopped, even though he was very visibly becoming exhausted and in pain. This utterly ''baffled'' Killua-- not only is this kid [[{{Determinator}} not staying down as intended]], but the aura surrounding Zushi ''threw him off'' because it reminded him so much of Illumi. The only way Zushi could be put down for the match was when Kil tossed him into the Arena walls.
