** Many HunterXHunter characters can actually be descended from YuYuHakusho characters due to their resemblance. But the most evident is Hiei and the Zoldycks and it's not just his resemblance with Killua. What is Hiei's hair color? [[FridgeBrilliance Black with white streaks. The known Zoldycks had either naturally black or white hair.]]

[[WMG: The Zoldyks were originally from Meteor City.]]
The place has been the source of anonymous killers for the underworld for a long time. But, not all will have ''stayed'' anonymous over their careers: take the Phantom Troupe as an example. People who the Zoldyks incidentally care to maintain links with, even though they'll also accept contracts against them. The family also tends to hire staff and choose spouses from Meteor City, suggesting strong connections with the place.

*Chrollo has since used the second antennae. Presumably if Chrollo's Skill Hunter technique was removed from Shalnark via nen exorcism, Chrollo would not be able to access the technique as it would have been ''returned'' to Shalnark. The nature of Skill Hunter being taking and not copying means that the ability is ''not'' being duplicated. As for why Chrollo would do such a thing (stealing from the rest of the Troupe)? How do we know he actually stole the powers? The Troupe is loyal to him. It's likely that Chrollo's "theft" was actual consensual and the members of the Troupe whose powers Chrollo has used in his fight against Hisoka (Shalnark, Kortopi) willingly offered them to him to use against Hisoka.

Chrollo has access to Black Voice in his book, which most certainly means he had managed to steal it from Shalnark. The nature of Chrollo's book would have robbed Shalnark of not only his abilities, but all his means to use nen. Why would Chrollo do such a thing to someone he treats as his friend? Because the Phantom Troupe still has access to Abengane, or at least his curse-removal powers (as it's also possible Chrollo subsequently stole these powers and put them in his book). Since Abengane was able to cure Chrollo of Kurapika's curse, which blocked his ability to use nen, logically he could do the same to Shalnark, as Chrollo's curse would have the very same effect on him. The result is that both of them can use Black Voice. It is possible that Chrollo can use two receivers because the second one was lent from Shalnark.

Shalnark--he cannot ''use'' the second one, and he was clearly treating it as a bluff to make Hisoka nervous.

[[WMG: Kurapika will have to choose between revenge and protecting his client.]]
Given the fact that this is the last pair of Scarlet Eyes that needs to be recovered, a significant roadblock is sure to show up. In the end, Kurapika will be forced into a situation where he can only choose one - his target and the man who owns them, or the defenseless Prince Woble. Bonus points if it crosses over with the theory above re: Pairo's head, making the choice over the only thing that remains of his dearest friend or the life of an innocent infant more agonizing.

** The use of "nanika" is likely coincidental, seeing as despite being used as a name for the character Nanika the word is literally Japanese for "something". It being in quotes isn't even necessarily the case either - the Japanese equivalent to quotation marks are a kind of bracket, but they're also used the way English uses italics and it's up to context to figure out which applies. In this case, it seems more like the brackets are being used to accentuate the word, not to give an implication of something else.

Specifically, the man in the business suit and short mustache seen for one panel in which Kurapika fails him for outright lying. Why do I think he'll be important? It may sound crazy, but it's because he resembles [[Film/TheAddamsFamily Gomez Addams]]. This is because there has been a series of characters in ''Hunter X Hunter'' who look like main characters from ''The Addams Family'', in particular the [[WesternAnimation/TheAddamsFamily Hanna-Barbera cartoon]], all of which have had plot significance. In order of how certain I am of them being based on ''The Addams Family'' characters:

* Kortopi -> Cousin It
* Geru -> Morticia
* Franklin -> Lurch [[note]](Franklin is based primarily on FrankensteinsMonster, but Franklin also has Lurch's hunched-over stance and tired expression)[[/note]]
* Shoot's floating hands -> Thing
* Palm -> Wednesday
Or maybe it's all one massive coincidence. But it's fun for me to hope.

* Kurapika explicitly starts wearing colored contacts from the Yorkshin arc onward, which explains the different colors.
