* What was the point in Genthru killing the Kazsule alliance (except for Gon, Killua, Biscuit, and Goreinu)? None of them have anything he wants, nor is there any hint he suspects they know his abilities.

** People whose abilities have been stolen and placed into that book are then placed into permanent Zetsu, preventing them from ever using Nen abilities again.


Added DiffLines:

** That was actually an anime-only thing, which I have no explanation for. In the manga, Hisoka causes the man's arms to suddenly vanish and nothing more, which he can most certainly do with lightning-fast movement, Texture Surprise, and his knack for StageMagician-style misdirection.

* What was the trick with turning some guys' arms into flower petals at the first appearance of Hisoka? It doesn't look like his Nenabilities, unless Texture Surprise can show moving images.

** It's actually how world politics works. The summit agreed to a no risk, no reward pact, by banning access to it. Beyond made it clear that he was gonna use a small but rich country to go there. The calamities could affect the whole world, making the risk a world threat, while the rewards would massively boost Kakin's power. It was more viable to get in on the action, even more, they even cut off Kakin, who will be taken to an intermediate island and told that's the dark continent.

** There has actually been 289 exams, once a year each. They said that 1 out of 10,000 people actually make it to the exam and that they sometimes go over a decade without a rookie passing. Stage 4 of the 297th exam was tailor made to greatly reduce the number. Even when Killua retook the test, they did a preliminary thinning, all for all brawl because there were too many applicants that year. That means that as said above, the people who pass rarely if ever reach the double digits. If they felt like it, Hisoka and Illumi could had killed and or scared every other candidate and both Ging and Killua were the only people to pass in their respective year.

* How did Illumi figure out that Killua was hiding more of Alluka's rules? The only thing that could have tipped him off about that was the fact that he took Alluka out of her room, and even that can be reasoned as "He wanted to free her", which is ALSO one of his goals. There's nothing else that he's done since leaving the room that would tip him off, and if the information came before then, Illumi would have figured it out far sooner.

* Where did the Chimera Ant Queen get all those different species? The domestic animals, insects, water-based animals, and birds all make sense. But where did she find a penguin, or an armadillo, or a ''lion''?

* Say the Phantom Troupe is eliminated completely, but someone in a few years time decides to recreate it, taking the name and image of the spider and follow their M.O to a T. Would Kurapika be able to use his chains against this new Phantom Troupe?

* This may be built upon a misunderstanding, but it always bothered me that [[CrapsackWorld In a world practically run by mobsters and mercenaries]] [[CrapsaccharineWorld (no matter how wacky those mercenaries may be)]] how are we supposed to view the Phantom Troupe as the BigBad of the series? So far they've only done one real evil thing in the series and even there it seems like the world is largely fine with it, I mean the eyes of the Kurata are sold for a high price in a well publicized market event for bigwigs to buy, and the main conflict of that whole arc was pretty much about [[InsaneTrollLogic one group of people trying to steal back what another group of people stole back after they stole them from another group of people]] so it's not like they are immoral par the world they live in. Hell if [[UnfortunateImplications Kurapika died no one would care at all about the genocide of an entire ethnic group.]] It's not even like this is used to further Kurapika's character or how [[PrecisionFStrike F'd]] up this world is, we're just supposed to know these guys are bad because they did that, which seems a little like lazy writing on Togashi's part.

* So, the idea behind the Phantom Troupe is that they do not use money and instead steal everything they want, and in most cases we've seen, they just kill whomever the object belonged to. Just how many people do these guys kill each day, and how do they get away with killing so many people while keeping a low profile? When Uvogin needed to drink some beer to get the leech eggs out of his system, he goes to someone's apartment and kills the inhabitant solely to rummage through his beer. When Nobunaga and Machi were at the café, were they going to kill the waitstaff when they receive their check? If Phinks needs new clothes, does he go to a department store, takes what he wants, and kills anyone who sees him so there are no witnesses? When Feitan wants to read a new book, does he take it off the shelf and burns the bookstore/library?

* basically it comes down to risk reward. If you believe a calamity is inevitable, perhaps divine retribution, then nothing is worth disturbing the place. If you believe that the calamities are proof of the danger and nothing more, it's worth exploring. There's a ton of cool shit on the dark continent, but it's covered in lethal shit. And if you bring the wrong shit back, we have a bad situation. Remember that chimera ants are from the dark continent and only considered rank B bio hazards. Imagine what a rank A is. Then remember that any scale is based off of knowns and there is the possibility of things that break the scale waiting for some fool to find them. I'd like to close by saying that they found berries that halt the aging process, but can only be grown on the dark continent, just to tell you exactly what level of treasure is involved. Risk reward.

** in addition to the previously mentioned super awesome things you can get on the Dark Continent (like an herb that prevents your body's breakdown from old age and a useful renewable energy source), Hunters just like to do awesome shit like face the scary stuff of the Dark Continent. The Zodiacs are going because a) Netero left a video basically ordering them to go; b) whatever governmental group that seems to run the hxh world told them to; and c) they like the challenge. The Zodiacs wanted Leorio to join them because it helps with internal Hunter politics since he became massively popular in the last arc, and they pick up Kurapika after Leorio requests it, and probably thinking that he'll be useful somehow. The Pariston/Ging group is Beyond's group--Pariston and Ging are vying for the position of number two in the group, not number one. While individual members may have different goals, it seems that they're also in it for the challenge more than anything.
