** Whose to say he didn't take on the persona after passing the Exam? Or maybe he stole a license? It's very possible that people know who he is, but don't realize it because he's using an alias


* How did Satotz not find out a thing about Ging in his research when Ging is one of the Zodiacs

* How did Satotz not find out a thing about Ging in his research when Ging is one of the ZodiacsZodiacs?
* How did Ickshonpe pass the Hunter Exam if he's never left his house (or whatever location he's at) to the point that nobody, not even the Zodiacs, knows what he looks like?

Added DiffLines:

*** This is accounted for in the 2011 anime. Shortly after Shizuku loses her arm-wrestling match with Gon, a member of the crowd notes that his money is missing. The implication is that Shizuku stole the money for the fare to arm-wrestle Gon.

Added DiffLines:

** its possible it was a combination of what happend in the manga with a bit of added slight of hand involved for the pedals


** The 2011 adaptation is dubbed by Bang Zoom, who are based out of Los Angeles, not Viz, while Level E was dubbed by Funimation, who are based out of Texas. Even if it was the same character, Vic is attached to Funi, and probably can't do stuff for a different company. There's also the factors of location, scheduling and cost.

----** Probably just to cut down on competition, especially as Kazsule's group would definitely be more likely to help Tsezguerra than him.


** As above, they are basically nukes that can be made smaller (the smallest nukes are the size of a backpack, but have much less power), more easily (since it takes less specialized resources), and have more powerful radiation that spreads like a bioweapon (which we also have). As far as WMDs go, it isn't a huge leap from what we have in real life. Since you presumably don't fear a nuclear war right now and live on a planet were humanity hasn't been wiped out, you can relate. Besides that, its basically the only mundane weapon that has a chance against powerful nen users and monsters. Without it, normal people would be helpless before Nen users. If I was a world leader in the HXH world, I would certainly want a couple on hand just in case we hit the Godzilla Threshold.

Added DiffLines:

*** That has never been stated. However, just like forcing a target into zetsu, Chrollo locks the victim's ability to use that Hatsu. Cheetu had the restriction of never using Tag again, so he couldn't even recreate it.


Added DiffLines:

** There is some level of restraint over needless trouble. Shizuku must had paid the fare to arm-wrestle Gon for example.


Added DiffLines:

** The continent has things like the camp tiger (a horned tiger that cooks it's food) so it could have peculiar fauna.


Added DiffLines:

** Because Killua was bipassing the known rules of Nanika.

Added DiffLines:

**** Its not like the Hunter association is the political rulers of the world. In the Chimera ant ark, Netero even takes an order/request from the world leaders. "Good they did in the past" might just be code for "Work we do for the governments".


** When Satotsu was giving Gon his license afte the Hunter Exam was over, he explained that Hunters were given all of those advantages because of the good their predecessors did in the past.

*** He would say that of course. If the truth was far closer to ''marching on the governments of the world and forcing them at nen-point to hand over the reigns of power to the Hunter Association,'' he is hardly likely to admit it. And would the truth even be common knowledge given the various mind-altering abilities we have seen?

** It would probably depend on if Kurapika considered them to be the "Phantom Troupe" or not. If he did, it would work. If he didn't, it wouldn't.

Added DiffLines:

* What was the point in Genthru killing the Kazsule alliance (except for Gon, Killua, Biscuit, and Goreinu)? None of them have anything he wants, nor is there any hint he suspects they know his abilities.

Added DiffLines:

** People whose abilities have been stolen and placed into that book are then placed into permanent Zetsu, preventing them from ever using Nen abilities again.


Added DiffLines:

** That was actually an anime-only thing, which I have no explanation for. In the manga, Hisoka causes the man's arms to suddenly vanish and nothing more, which he can most certainly do with lightning-fast movement, Texture Surprise, and his knack for StageMagician-style misdirection.
