kurapika nen abilities

Kurapika is both a materialization and specialization type, one that can fashion objects that act according to his imagination. The weapon that he conjures using his materialization abilities is a unique one--extending from his fingers of his right hand are five chains, which were specially created to deal vengeance upon the Genei Ryodan. When Kurapika's eyes turn scarlet, his nen type shifts from materialization to specialization. His nen ability as a specialist, Emperor Time, allows him to utilize all the types of nen to 100% efficiency, making him virtually invincible during this span of time.

To increase his effectiveness against the formidable Genei Ryodan, Kurapika places strict restrictions on the usage of his nen blades:

Use of each chain:

  • Thumb - Holy Chain (ホーリーチェ-ン
Shaped like a cross, it cures wounds by drawing from the reinforcement ability. When Kurapika is in his specialization state, its ability is enhanced and can heal serious injuries within seconds.
  • Middle finger - Chain Jail (チェーンジェイル
Wraps around enemies, restricting movement. Also forcefully causes captured person to enter zetsu. This chain is restricted in that it can only be used to deal with members of the Genei Ryodan, and if the restriction is violated, Kurapika will die.
  • Ring finger - Dowsing Chain (ダウジングチェーン
Kurapika uses this frequently under normal situations, for defense and attack purposes. It is also useful for other investigative activities, like determining the location of missing individuals.
  • Little finger - Judgement Chain (ジャッジメントチェーン
A small nen blade enters the victim's body and stabs the heart. Kurapika sets a condition and if the victim breaches it, he would lose his life. Only can be of use when Kurapika is in the Specialization state.


Kurapika is a level headed and intelligent individual, possessing knowledge of a great variety of things. Of sound judgement, his focused analyses on several situations has saved his friends from the brink of death many times. Kurapika's ability to think quickly has also saved him from being killed by oppressively powerful enemies like Hisoka.

Kurapika has proven to be a balanced fighter on several accounts. He has two large tantō hidden below his over shirt. Sometimes (usually when his emotions gain altitude) Kurapika's eyes turn scarlet red--a trait inherited in all members of the Kuruta family. When in combination with his nen, Kurapika's scarlet eyes allow him to . Kurapika’s great horizon of knowledge is also an asset in duels. After learning

Type of hunter

Official Hunters, ones who have passed the Hunter exam, usually choose to align their careers as Hunters along specialized paths. The following list comprises the different types of Hunters that have appeared in the manga. These titles seem to be unofficial, as Hunters only identify themselves to these titles by word, and no part of the Hunter exam was used to specifically determine a candidate's field.

  • Blacklist Hunters - Hunters in this field dedicate their skills to tracking down the most dangerous and wanted criminals. Aspiring Blacklist Hunters often have intentions of justice or revenge.
  • Treasure Hunters- Self explanatory, Hunters in this field scour the world in search of rare and valuable items. Hunters who take this path tend to be the most adventurous, or the most greedy.
  • Culinary/Epicure Hunters - The goal of a Culinary Hunter is to find and collect rare ingredients, then bring their flavours to life by using new and creative styles of cooking. The second test of the Hunter exam, illustrated the creed of the Epicure Hunter. Though never stated explicitly, most Epicure Hunters probably use specialized Nen abilities in their field.
  • Archaeological Hunters - Many Hunters show a love of ancient cultures. Archeological Hunters are dedicated to uncovering ruins and reviving ancient societies. Ging Freecss, Gon's father, is the most famous Archaeological Hunter. Satotsu, the examiner of the first test, revealed to Gon that Ging made unparalleled contributions to this area of study.
  • Wildlife Hunters- Hunters who feel a deep love for nature whose job as a Wildlife Hunter involves the study and preservation of undiscovered animal species.
  • Music Hunters - Definitely catered to the musically talented, they are the ones who have chosen the pursuit of rare musical pieces. Senritsu (Melody) is a Hunter of this category.
  • Contract Hunters - Basically, they find rich people and make deals/contracts with them. Not much is known because they are only briefly mentioned by Leorio.

Hunter license

A Hunter licence is in the form of a normal card. It is slightly thicker and has inbuilt computer chips. The front shows your Hunter rank, and the back has a magnetic strip with a unique serial number that identifies each individual to their licence. It works similar to a credit card, with card machines that can swipe and read the license. The licence also comes with a range of extra benefits. Although these benefits can only be used by the true owner of a license, the Hunter Licence is still a valuable collector's item, and can be sold for great deals of money (enough money to support himself for at least 7 generations in luxury!)

With regards to the numerous benefits, first and foremost is the unparalleled fame and recognition a licence holder can enjoy, being one of the few in the world who owns a licence. Next comes the material benefits, which include:

  • 1. Having a 95% discount on all public services (i.e. hotel lodging, food, transport, etc.). Furthermore, all such services are provided at first class.
  • 2. Unrivaled freedom to travel around the world. They are granted access to about 90% of countries that are normally restricted to outsiders, and access to 70% of areas that are normally deemed 'forbidden'.
  • 3. No legal responsibility for killing people (this basically means Hunters can get away with murder!)

Upon passing the Hunter Exam, candidates will receive a standard Hunter License. However, Hunters can be awarded with stars for significant contributions to society.

  • 1 Star - given to hunters who have made a significant contribution to a part of society.
  • 2 Star - given to hunters who have made significant contributions to several fields.
  • 3 Star - given to hunters who have made extraordinary contributions to society over several fields. This is the rarest and most difficult rank to obtain, and is considered a great honour. The number of 3-Star hunters is about 10.

All about Killua

From the outside, Killua seems just to be the boy next door; cheeky, cheerful and full of mischievous ideas. However, his ruthlessness and aptitude in killing shows the other side of him--deadly, violent and bloodthirsty. Having been repeatedly tortured since birth, Killua has been conditioned to possess extreme tolerance for poison, electrocution, and pain. Possessing both extraordinary agility and strength to match, Killua is one mean killing machine--definitely not one to be trifled with, as many of his adversaries had seen. However, until recently his greatest flaw was to fear characters more powerful than him, such as his elder brother Illumi. Killua had been trained as an assassin by his brother to be extremely cautious and engage in combat only if victory was virtually certain. This impeded him as a Hunter, as it is stated more than once that victory is never certain, and that depending on the circumstances, someone has the potential to defeat a stronger opponent. Killua struggled with these conflicting ideas during the latter half of the series, as he started to encounter stronger opponents. However, his brother's teachings remained firmly entrenched in his mind, to the point that Biscuit prophesized that he would one day abandon Gon because of this. Biscuit gave Killua an ultimatum: Defeat Shoot for the right to go with Gon to fight the Chimera Ants, or leave his side. Killua lost, and resolved to leave after Gon had recovered from his fight, protecting him in the meantime. However, Killua finally had to face Biscuit's prophecy when he encountered a Chimera ant, while Gon (who couldn't use nen) wasn't far off and had no way of defending himself. Killua, preoccupied with his internal battle, was losing to the Chimera ant. At the last moment, Killua found that Illumi had planted a needle in his head with his ability, all the way back in the first Hunter Exam. This needle was responsible in forcing Killua to retreat whenever any situation looks potentially dangerous. Upon extracting the needle, Killua was freed from this restraint, and gained more confidence in battle.

Nen of killua

As a transformation type who can transform the nen into any substance at their will, Killua is busily practicing this ability. So far, he has managed to successfully transform his surrounding nen into an electrically charged form, producing volts of electricity. The inspiration for this has been attributed to the daily doses of shock therapy he received at home, a favourite torture device of his brother, Milluki.

Killua's nen attacks include the Narukami (Lightning Bolt), which is a bolt of lightning transmitted emitted from his hands, and the Izutsushi (Lightning Palms), where he electrocutes an opponent by touching them with his palms. He also has another ability where he is able to increase his reflexes using his nen ability, allowing him to move and act without thinking.

Killua Background

Killua was born as the middle child to a family of renowned assassins, the Zaoldyeck family. Showing great promise from birth, Killua has already mastered many killing techniques at a tender age, and is set to be one of the best assassins the family has produced. Bored and tired of killing, Killua unexpectedly rebelled against his family, injuring both his mother and brother, and ran away to join the Hunter exam. Meeting with Gon during the first obstacle, Killua saw Gon as a friendly competitor, and ended up becoming fast friends. The Zaoldyeck family are world-renowned assassins so rich and powerful that they are said to employ more than 200 people and live and own Kukuruu Mountain and the vast surrounding forests. They are so fearless that they have never hidden their whereabouts, and even tour buses take visitors to their "front gates" known as the Gates to the Underworld as those who enter never return.

Killua divulges that since his youth, he has been constant training, having been left in the Celestial Tower (a tournament arena) at the age of 6, and swimming in pools of electric eels being amongst his everyday trials.

From the grandmother, grandfather, father, mother, and five sons, all are assassins.

Zaoldyeck Family

The second story arc involves Gon, Kurapika, and Leorio springing Killua from his parents' mansion. At the end of the second story arc, Leorio leaves for medical school and becomes a professional doctor while Kurapika leaves to find work, taking both characters out of the story. In the third story arc, Gon and Killua go to the Celestial Tower (also known as "Heavens Arena"), a 251-floor building where people can compete in fighting tournaments around the clock for cash. It is here they meet the Kungfu master Wing, who teaches them about Nen, a chi-like energy that can be used to manifest superhuman powers. He teaches a young child named Zushi, who joins Gon and Killua to fight in the tournament to gain money and experience. Hisoka defeats another powerful Nen user, Kastro, who was able to create and use a double made from Nen. Hisoka loses both arms in the battle but Machi, a fellow Nen user and Phantom Troupe member, uses her ability to sew the arms back on. Gon battles Hisoka and is able to land a few hits but loses in the end.
