* 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.

*How exactly does Chrollo steal someone's Hatsu? This is mostly referring to the inability on the part of the original user to recreate their Hatsu after he steals it. Now I'm still fairly early in, but the way it seems is someone's Hatsu isn't a typical superpower, but rather it's a specific application of their Nen. If for example, Chrollo stole something like Uvogin's Big Bang Impact, what is preventing Uvogin from using his Nen in exactly the same way to simply recreate the stolen technique?

* This one is regarding the dub for the 2011 anime: Why didn't they have Vic Mignogna reprise his role as Baka Ki El Dogra? He's done roles for Viz Media before (one of which is still ongoing), so it's not like he has bad relations with the studio. Plus, it was only a few lines!

** I wouldn't peg them as the Big Bad, they may have started in that role for the York Shin arc, but they were more Anti-Heroes (loosely) in the Chimera Arc. Even then, having them as the Big Bad doesn't mean they have to be the cliché shonen big bads that want to destroy the world. Kurapika has a personal vendetta against them and Gon, Killua and Leorio are with him. So to the group the Ryodan are the designated villains by way of the other 3 not having their own villain(s), Hisoka excluded.
** Simple, they were the big bads of the York Shin arc, not the series. Pariston alone is more of a threat.

*** This. If you take every instance of "Hunter" in the series, and replace it with "Certified {{Badass}}", it might be a bit awkwardly worded, but it wouldn't change the meaning of the story at all. You can be a {{Badass}} without being a Hunter, of course, but only the Hunters' Association can ''certify'' you as one.
