** In the case of cell phones, they went from block-phones to flip phones, and now everyone's carrying smartphones, with no explanation whatsoever. That being said, abilities tied to now-obsolete technology keep their appearance, like with the [=iPod=]-looking Rental Pod and the early-00's cellphone Black Voice. With the case of the latter, the manga only depicts the back of the phone, dodging the drastically different appearances of cell phones nowadays.

** Averted. Chrollo can steal others' Nen [[ImprobableWeaponUser through a book]], but he can only use one ability at a time.

Chrollo still has a limit of two, or only one if the ability requires both hands to use.]]

* SuperStrength: Several of the characters are absurdly strong even before you factor in Nen, as demonstrated above with CharlesAtlasSuperpower.

** Each one of the arcs is a deliberate deconstruction of a common shonen fighting arc:
*** Hunter Exam Arc: The "contest" arc, in which several characters need to compete with each other in order to win a title. This arc examines what would ''actually'' happen in a contest filled with superhumans- the normal humans die in brutal ways, the empowered individuals run rampant and murder dozens, and Gon barely survives only because the only two people that know Nen are Hisoka and Illumi, who likes Gon enough to keep him alive for Hisoka and barely processes Gon's presence for Illumi. Heck, the people in the final phase win on a ''technicality''- only Gon really fought for his victory.
*** Zoldyck Family Arc: The "rescue" arc, in which the heroes try to save a friend/teammate from peril. The power gap between the Zoldycks and Gon and co. is so huge all they can do is desperately plead with the family to see their friend. As it turns out, Killua is in no danger at all, he leaves of his own volition and his father even lets him go after realizing he needs friends to properly grow, and that letting him grow outside their care is not an issue.
*** Heavens Arena Arc: The "training" arc, in which the heroes train in new abilities. Gon and Killua do ''not'' win the Heavens Arena, and actually treat it as a means to an end for their abilities to be tested. Their mentor, Wing, also expresses severe worry about unlocking their potential as they become extremely strong in a short amount of time.
*** Phantom Troupe Arc: The "villain squad" arc, in which the heroes face off against a group of evil villains. This arc examines what would happen if you took superpowered humans and put them in the real world- the power gap between the troupe and the mafia goons is massive, and only Kurapika, who has [[spoiler: limited his arsenal to specifically ''only fight the troupe'']] can stand a chance. Even still, Kurapika can only do so little, and most of the troupe escapes unscathed. This also examines some MoralMyopia inherent in villains that care about their friends yet murder dozens.
*** Greed Island Arc: The "deadly game" arc, in which the heroes must compete and win a game to survive. Greed Island is a very real place, and the horrific injuries Gon and crew suffer are very real. This also examines the rather horrific situation of coming to Greed Island and not having Nen- Gon's group manages to start a collection of cards just by trading people a way out of the game, who are desperate to go home.
*** Chimera Ant Arc: The "enemy army" arc, in which a large enemy force accosts the heroes, with a powerful leader. This arc in particular examines the idea of having an enemy that is significantly stronger than you- from the ''enemy's'' perspective. What is it like being devastatingly stronger than everyone else? How would something that is on another level from everything process the worth of other creatures? What would something that was meteorically stronger than everything else think when it realizes that other creatures can think just like it can? What would ''it'' constitute as strength? The Chimera Ant King is a rather somber answer to all of these questions. Even more deconstructive is that [[spoiler: the humans actually ''cheat'' to win- upon learning that he will die and realizing no one else can stop the king, Netero detonates a nuclear bomb in his chest than eventually kills the King from radiation poisoning, rather than a straight up fight.]]

* AmbiguousGenderIdentity:" Alluka is referred to as a girl by Killua and dresses like a shrine maiden. The rest of her family, who barely consider her a person, refer to her as male and in a flashback it's shown she wore more androgynous clothes as a little kid, implying she's transgender.

** Nen itself is a ''massive'' deconstruction of KiAttacks in general. Compared to similar techniques in other series, Nen has a very definite and detailed structure that determines how people develop the abilities they have and how to best make use of those abilities. Compared to learned attacks from most other series (which are nearly always taught as part of a school of martial arts), how Nen manifests is heavily dependent on the individual. Also in comparison to other series, where fighters generally spam their special attacks all the time, Nen users are incredibly conservative when it comes to using their abilities in order to keep their opponents from learning the particulars of that ability, including its strengths and weaknesses.
