The series is notable for having many long hiatus breaks during its run, one of which continued for a grand total of 1 year and 20 days! ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' returned in 2010 ''Weekly Shonen Jump'' Double Issue #5-6, and ran for 20 chapters. It then went back into a year long hiatus since 2010 ''Weekly Shonen Jump'' Issue #26, but has finally returned again in 2011 ''Weekly Shonen Jump'' Issue #35-36, for 30 chapters then it went on a break again on Issue #16, 2012. It ''seemed'' to have settled into a system where we get one ''tankobon'' (single volume collecting ~10 chapters) every 6 months, instead of every 2 months; this puts ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' on par with mangas that get a new chapter each month, instead of each week. The manga is now back on track as of April 2016, and has been releasing chapters at a somewhat stable rate. Unfortunately, as of June 30, 2016, it has taken another "Series Hiatus".

** [[ProtagonistCenteredMorality Gon]] [[FriendToAllLivingThings Freecs]] has distinct shades of this. He isn't TheUnfettered, because he is guided by a strong sense of right and wrong, but as the counterfeiter he hangs out with finally realizes, "He doesn't care about the good and the bad." Mostly it's enough to peg him as ChaoticGood, but that doesn't really do him justice. Neither the readers nor the other characters can really predict where his moral sense will take him, and he surprises even his best friend (a child assassin) a lot. A serial killer once trained him and Killua, and he cheerfully allowed the person to go free afterward even after it was pointed out that this would cause more young women to get eaten, because "he helped us". After one of the Phantom Troupe is killed by Kurapika, Gon and Killua are captured by his best friend, who suspects them of involvement and rants, in tears, about [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes how much it hurts]] to have lost his blowing-stuff-all-to-hell partner. And ''Gon responds with sudden fury,'' because he had assumed that the Troupe's members could do such horrible things because they didn't understand how much it hurt to lose people, which meant he couldn't hold it against them, but if they ''can'' and still do it they're so incomprehensibly evil he wants to '''end''' them. Tonpa admits how much he enjoys watching people fail miserably and die taking the hunter exams, which infuriates everyone else... except Gon, who continues treating him like a friend because he inadvertently helped them with his cowardice. Hanzo broke his arm during the hunter exam and when he threatened Gon's life, Gon simply said that "they would have to settle things in a different way" because if he died then Hanzo would loose (Gon not at all realizing the implication of the threat or simply didn't care about dying at all). He uses Komugi, a blind, innocent girl who’s been mortally injured, as a hostage to ensure Neferpitou doesn't try to escape before bringing Kite back, and even [[MoralEventHorizon threatens to kill her]] if s/he does. To sum it up Gon has a simple world view, lives in the moment and judges people by their personalities and his experiences with them.

* TheBusCameBack: Nearly every previously introduced Hunter appears during the Hunter Chairman election, except for the deceased ones and certain villains.


Added DiffLines:

* WhamEpisode: There are many examples in HxH, but Ging delivers a truly epic revelation when Gon catches up with him in Chapter 338. [[spoiler: We discover that the known world map, referenced throughout the series, is actually a collection of islands at the center of a giant lake, and the rest of the HxH world is both vast and unexplored by humanity.]]

** CoolOldGuy Morau has a giant pipe as his nen ability, its name? DeepPurple. And just in case that's too subtle, his first fight is against a water user.
