** Ging is a deconstruction of the typical DisappearedDad seen in Shonen stories. He's a BadAss, sure, but his neglect towards his son Gon is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] and frowned on InUniverse. Gon's goal of finding Ging also deconstructs the trope of a Shonen protagonist going on a quest to find their missing parent. Gon spends a large part of the series looking for him, and while they do get along, even Gon acknowledges that he doesn't really see him as a father, but as an awesome relative he's heard great things about, and realizes that he [[ItsTheJourneyThatCounts didn't necessarily want to meet Ging so much as find him]]. After he finally accomplishes this goal [[DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife he's left wondering where to go from there]].

** But it's somewhat averted, in the 'heterosexual' department: [[https://31.media.tumblr.com/b0924de7c704ee271e40581763365d2f/tumblr_inline_n84jzwJRI01rrn75w.gif Killua kisses Gon. He likes it.]]

** The fight between [[spoiler: Chrollo and Hisoka]] is awful even for this manga in a way in which deconstructs just what someone capable of world-bending magic powers and absolutely no conscience could really do.

* [[RodandReelRepurposed Rod-and-Reel Repurposed]]: Gon uses a fishing pole as a weapon before learning the Nen. However, he never uses it to directly attack an enemy.

** [[spoiler: The Nanika/Election arc. [[WhiteandGreyMorality The bad guy turns out to be decent, and the EldritchAbomination turns out to be a cute little monster.]] Gon is healed, and finally meets his dad. Considering the [[CrapsackWorld Hunterverse]], the arc is refreshingly LighterAndSofter.]]
