When I say we’re going to cover one of the most
controversial characters to ever exist in anime world, in this article, I’m
most definitely talking about Hunter x Hunter’s most intriguing yet mysterious
character, the recurring villain and occasional ally, the Bungee Gum-wielding magician
Hisoka Morow. Don’t we just love the good-looking troublemakers with crazy
skills who can sweet talk and manipulate others? Well Hisoka ticks all of those
boxes and thus becoming Mr Popular in no time. Let’s talk about Hisoka Morow
from Hunter x Hunter.
LIFE AND BACKGROUND :
The first time we see him in the anime, is in the Hunter
Exam as applicant #44 and someone immediately gets their arms severed just
because they accidentally bumped into him. This very incident makes us curious
about this particular character. Like, what is up with this craziness? What’s
that super cool power? Is he an egotist? However, we know very little about him
till this day. Hisoka doesn't speak much about his past, since he cares little about
it. At some point after the Kurta massacre, Hisoka joined the Phantom Troupe as
a false member. After defeating the previous fourth member, this occurred about
two years before the events in Yorknew City. A licensed hunter, international
criminal, and Heaven's Arena floormaster with an appreciation for court jester
fashion and magic trick aesthetics, Hisoka Morow is the most handsome of them
all. Initially introduced as an antagonist, his role in the franchise is
constantly changing. He joins the protagonists' antics whenever it suits him.
He is unpredictable, cruel and weird… very weird. Hisoka possesses a
deceptively simple motivation: to the point of physiological dependence, he
strives to find strong opponents to compete against and defeat. The Phantom
Troupe is an organized crime organization whose leader he aims to face in
combat at some point. We don’t need an introduction to Chrollo Lucifer, now do
we? It’s a shame that we haven’t got the chance to watch their fight get
Gon and his friends are often allowed to live despite the
fact that Hisoka could have easily killed them, because he believes that if
they are allowed to grow, they will become more formidable. All other concerns
pale in comparison to Hisoka's need to fight the strongest people in the world,
regardless of the few positive relationships in his life or his own mortality. It
would be logical to assume that a character with only one intrinsic motivation
would take whatever action leads to a good fight, but Hisoka manages to be
surprisingly complex. Although Hisoka doesn't appear in every arc, he pops up
from time to time, leaving the audience to recognize his role rather than
knowing it beforehand. He usuallyshows up unannounced, so the audience must discover his role astheyfollow the story.
POWERS AND ABILITIES :
Hisoka's natural category proficiency manifests primarily in
Bungee Gum, a Nen ability, but he has also shown to be extremely proficient in
controlling the shape of his aura which is a Transmutation skill. Hisoka
himself explains that this power has given his aura the properties of rubber
and gum, making it sticky and flexible. Hisoka uses it in ways that usually
give him the upper hand against any opponent he faces. Bungee Gum allows him to
immobilize his opponents and stop projectiles easily.
Hisoka has all the benefits granted
by his status as a Hunter. Notorious for his graceful, cruel, and deceitful
fighting ability, Hisoka has proven himself to be a deadly opponent. However,
his true abilities have never been shown, as he is willing to fight enemies
famous for their terrifying power. For instance, he pondered prompting
Illumi Zoldyck into having a death match with him, and even craved to confront
Ging Freecss and Isaac Netero. Apparently, he doesn’t fight according to any
conventional martial art, combining his tremendous physical attributes with
razor-sharp poker cards, an unpredictable mind, and an unquenchable thirst for
killing. Hisoka has amazing physical strength, ranking third in the Phantom
Troupe. Speed is a mainstay of his distinctive fighting style, combined
with surgical-like accuracy. He can wipe out
a group of professional Hunters single-handedly, and dodge or catch bullet-fast
objects with ease. Combined with his Bungee Gum ability, he can disappear out
of sight and move at speeds that even experienced fighters are unable to
HOW TALL IS HISOKA :
Hisoka is very tall, which, not
going to lie, contributes to his handsomely good looking physique a lot. He
stands at 6’2 feet or 187 cm with his well built body.
