*** That has never been stated. However, just like forcing a target into zetsu, Chrollo locks the victim's ability to use that Hatsu. Cheetu had the restriction of never using Tag again, so he couldn't even recreate it.


Added DiffLines:

** There is some level of restraint over needless trouble. Shizuku must had paid the fare to arm-wrestle Gon for example.


Added DiffLines:

** The continent has things like the camp tiger (a horned tiger that cooks it's food) so it could have peculiar fauna.


Added DiffLines:

** Because Killua was bipassing the known rules of Nanika.

**** Its not like the Hunter association is the political rulers of the world. In the Chimera ant ark, Netero even takes an order/request from the world leaders. "Good they did in the past" might just be code for "Work we do for the governments".

** When Satotsu was giving Gon his license afte the Hunter Exam was over, he explained that Hunters were given all of those advantages because of the good their predecessors did in the past.

*** He would say that of course. If the truth was far closer to ''marching on the governments of the world and forcing them at nen-point to hand over the reigns of power to the Hunter Association,'' he is hardly likely to admit it. And would the truth even be common knowledge given the various mind-altering abilities we have seen?

** As above, they are basically nukes that can be made smaller (the smallest nukes are the size of a backpack, but have much less power), more easily (since it takes less specialized resources), and have more powerful radiation that spreads like a bioweapon (which we also have). As far as WMDs go, it isn't a huge leap from what we have in real life. Since you presumably don't fear a nuclear war right now and live on a planet were humanity hasn't been wiped out, you can relate.

Besides that, its basically the only mundane weapon that has a chance against powerful nen users and monsters. Without it, normal people would be helpless before Nen users. If I was a world leader in the HXH world, I would certainly want a couple on hand just in case we hit the Godzilla Threshold.

** It would probably depend on if Kurapika considered them to be the "Phantom Troupe" or not. If he did, it would work. If he didn't, it wouldn't.

* 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.


Added DiffLines:

** 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.
