Chrollo 2011 Design 1

Chrollo's 2011 anime adaptation design

Chrollo's 1999 anime adaptation design

Chap 106 - Chrollo full body appearance

Chrollo's manga appearance

Chrollo is a young man with black hair and grey eyes. Two of his distinguishing features are the cross-shaped tattoo on his forehead and a pair of orb-shaped earrings. He is usually seen wearing a dark purple coat that has white fur on the collar and wrists, unbuttoned to reveal his muscular physique. The coat is imprinted with a golden St. Peter's Cross on the back.

Prior to the foundation of the Phantom Troupe , Chrollo neither wore his trademark coat nor combed back his hair. When he approached Neon Nostrade to steal her Nen ability , he wore a blue blazer with his hair hanging down naturally and his cross tattoo hidden beneath a thick layer of wrappings. His spider tattoo has yet to be revealed, but the 1999 anime adaptation placed it on his right arm. [7]


43 - Chrollo talking to Uvogin

Chrollo remaining calm in a tense situation

Chrollo is calm, intelligent, and charismatic, as he seems to be a born leader and able to hold the Troupe together despite the volatile personalities of its members. While he is a very capable strategist, Chrollo is also very confident in his own fighting abilities as well as in those of the other members of the Spider . He always has at least two people with him, which is why Hisoka found it so difficult to fight him. [8] After he has admired the items that he targeted and acquired, Chrollo sells them all. [9] It is also stated that Chrollo likes antique books. [3]

56 - Chrollo reaction

Chrollo reacting to Gon’s question about his motives

Unflinching and unshakable, he is also an observer of human nature. Gon 's hostility toward the Troupe led Chrollo to reflect upon the nature of himself and his actions. [10] Additionally, when fighting Hisoka, who refused to back down even after seeing the extent of his abilities, Chrollo expressed a fascination for the inner workings of human beings. However, by his own claim, he sees no difference between a puppet and a person. [11]

Chrollo shows no fear of his own death, even anticipating it. Melody stated that his heartbeat sounded as if he was happy living alongside death. To Chrollo, the Troupe is more important than his own life. [12] He once stated that the survival of the group comes before the well-being of the leader, stressing that the head of the Spider is just another limb that can be sacrificed for the survival of the whole. [13] In order to prevent their negative fortunes from coming true, Chrollo ordered the Troupe members to stay close and to assist one another. [10] The only people Chrollo seems to care about are his fellow Troupe members. When he reads his fortune written by Neon which alludes to Uvogin 's death, he cries for him. Later on, he orchestrates a massacre of Mafia members as a requiem to his fallen comrade. [14] [15] After the deaths of Kortopi and Shalnark at the hands of Hisoka, Chrollo appears visibly distraught [16] and furious, [17] vowing to kill him as soon as he sees him. [4]

51 - Chrollo smiling

Chrollo changing his demeanor around Neon

Like the other Troupe members, Chrollo is cold-blooded and not above inhuman mass murder, most notably when they brutally massacred the Kurta Clan . In addition, his use of Indoor Fish on an assassin reflects his apathetic nature towards his enemies. There is also an implied hostility between Chrollo and Silva Zoldyck , most likely stemming from their previous encounter after Silva's killing of a Troupe member. [18] [19]

Chrollo is a skilled actor and quite manipulative, as shown when he met Neon Nostrade and "befriended" her to steal her fortune-telling ability. During that time, he presented himself as an amiable and helpful man, always enthusiastic and smiling, who also displayed curiosity. However, Chrollo only intended to learn about Neon's ability to fulfill one of the conditions needed to steal it. [14] [1]

A young Chrollo and Pakunoda

Chrollo is shown to have been emotional, caring, and bright as a child. He also always brought fresh flowers for the graves of children in church. Father Lisores comments to a Meteor City elder that he sees much promise in Chrollo because of his spirit and original ideas. [20]

Chap 395 - Young Chrollo

Chrollo in his youth

Chrollo originated from Meteor City , a junkyard city inhabited by outcasts. People who live there do not exist in any official records, and the existence of the city itself is known to a very few people. [21]

One day, Chrollo, who was about eleven years old, along with Franklin and Shalnark , found a new VHS tape in one of the garbage dumps. They started running with the tape, tossing it from hand to hand, which Machi saw. She then reports this to Uvogin , who gets in the boys' way. Uvo knocks out Shalnark as Franklin returns the tape to Chrollo, who escapes using the opportunity. Then, Phinks and Feitan cut off Chrollo's path on a motorbike. Chrollo gives them back the tape, but it turns out that he outsmarted them, and it was a Gelman language course tape found sometime earlier, and he hid the newly found tape under his shirt. Chrollo then goes to the church, where he has a short conversation with Father Lisores . After that, he visits the AV room, where he meets Pakunoda . Together, they play the tape in a VCR, which is a recording of the movie Power Cleaners in a foreign language. Chrollo decides to translate the film's content and create dubbing with his friends. He asks Pakunoda to talk Sheila and Sarasa into it. After a short while, Chrollo manages to finish the script, after which the four friends start recording. [20]

Chap 396 - Chrollo's performance

Chrollo terrifying the audience with his villain performance

After the recordings are finished, the prepared film is shown in the church. Lots of kids from Meteor City show up. The first to approach Chrollo, even before the show, is Uvogin. He tells him that they need to talk after the show is over. Phinks then arrives with dubious intentions, but is distracted by Sarasa. Sheila notes that as long as Chrollo is protected by the youngest of the children, Sarasa, he is safe. The show begins. All the children seem to be delighted, but at some point the sound in the recording stops working. While Uvogin makes fun of Chrollo's problems, Chrollo decides to do live voices, standing on stage and using a microphone. Pakunoda, Sheila and Sarasa join him. On stage, Chrollo imitates a multitude of characters, not only vocally but also physically. The children are most impressed by the role of the villain, in which Lucilfer's face shows unprecedented emotions. After the show ends, Uvogin is delighted and asks for a chance to voice the villain in the next taping. The children form a dubbing group consisting of: Chrollo, Uvogin, Sheila, Sarasa, Nobunaga, Feitan, Phinks, Shalnark, Pakunoda, and Franklin. Machi is also with them, but she doesn't like any of the available roles. In the near future, the group is tightening ties and spending time rehearsing, writing scripts and presenting new episodes on stage. We see them after some time when the group tries to get Machi to participate in the show, but she only considers the role of the villain. The group tries to find a solution, but they notice that they don't have enough actors and they should look for new ones. They also consider a name for themselves and choose the name "Troupe". They are going to add a second term to it, but they are not sure what it should be yet. Chrollo and Uvogin have a short chat in which the latter states that he has found his purpose, which is to travel with Chrollo, putting on shows, and playing the role of the best villain in the world. [22]

Chap 397 - Chrollo and Uvogin seeing Sarasa

Chrollo and Uvogin seeing Sarasa's body

One day, Sarasa didn't show up at the show. The troupe learned that she had not been seen since yesterday. Most of the children watching the Troupe's shows decided to help with the search. Chrollo paired up with Uvogin, and after a long time of searching, they came up with the idea of checking out the Uga Forest . They gathered the other members and they all went into the forest together. There they found the scene of the crime, the instruments of torture, a note left behind and a sack hanging from a tree. Chrollo was the only one who could read the contents of the note, but he chose not to share it with the others. When Uvogin took the sack from the tree, Chrollo decided to check the contents. It turned out that Sarasa's destroyed body was inside. Some time later, Chrollo attends Sarasa's funeral, after which he talks to Uvogin about their future. He asks him to wait three years, in which he will be able to get the necessary funds to carry out his plan, which consists in creating a website that brings together criminals. During the conversation, they are joined by the other members of the Troupe, except for Sheila, who decides to leave the group. Each of the other members chose Chrollo as the leader of the group, which will be formed in three years. [23]

HxH2011 EP57 Troupe Founding IMG5

Chrollo founding the Phantom Troupe

Around three years later, being about the age of fourteen, Chrollo founded the Phantom Troupe , along with Franklin, Uvogin, Machi, Pakunoda, Feitan, Nobunaga, [13] and Shalnark . [23]

Then, sometime later, Chrollo fought Silva Zoldyck before their encounter in the Cemetery Building . It is unknown when and what the exact circumstances were. [19] He presumably took part in the massacre of the Kurta Clan . [24]

Heavens Arena arc

After she heals his wounds at Heavens Arena , Machi tells Hisoka that all Troupe members must meet in Yorknew City by noon on August 30 th . He asks if Chrollo will be present, and Machi assumes that he will be, adding that it may be their biggest mission yet and that Chrollo may punish him personally if he doesn’t show. [25]

Yorknew City arc

Spiders Reunited

The Spiders reunited

Chrollo is first seen at a meeting of the Phantom Troupe in an abandoned area of Yorknew City on August 31 st . He orders the Troupe to steal all the items at the Underground Auction and to eliminate anyone who gets in their way. [3]

On the evening of September 1 st , he, Phinks , Kortopi , Bonolenov , Pakunoda , and Hisoka stay behind while the other seven members infiltrate the Cemetery Building where the auction is being held and kill all the Mafia members and guests in the auditorium, [26] only to discover that the vault had been emptied and the items relocated just a few hours before their arrival. As they escape in a hot-air balloon, Uvogin calls Chrollo and suspects that there’s a traitor within the Troupe. Chrollo reasons with him that an informant exists, but this person is not among them. After learning about the man named Owl who removed the auction items, he then tells Uvogin and others to cause a big disturbance to lure out the other Shadow Beasts . [27]

Following Chrollo’s order, Uvogin massacres the Mafia and four Shadow Beasts in the Gordeau Desert , [28] but he is captured by Kurapika shortly afterwards. Five other Troupe members immediately give chase until they are stopped on the way by the remaining Shadow Beasts. [29] They kill all of them except Owl, who they capture and torture to retrieve the auction items. Near midnight, they find where Uvogin is being held captive and free him after killing Dalzollene , the head bodyguard of the Nostrade Family . [8] Uvogin, however, insists on finding the chain user and has the others tell Chrollo that he won’t return until he settles the score. [9] After tracking down Kurapika and arranging a duel, Uvogin eventually meets his demise in the Gordeau Desert in the early hours of September 2 nd . Back at the Troupe’s hideout, Chrollo surmises that the chain user is either a Manipulator or Conjurer and that Uvogin is likely to lose against them in a one-on-one fight. He tells the other members that if Uvogin doesn’t return by dawn, they will change their plans. [6]

Chrollo cries after reading his prophecy

Chrollo crying after reading his fortune

On September 3 rd , thanks to a picture of her that was just uploaded on the Hunter Website , Chrollo finds and approaches Neon Nostrade , who has slipped away from her bodyguards to attend the rescheduled Underground Auction without her father ’s knowledge. [30] After helping her to get into the Cemetery Building, he asks her to tell his fortune, which she gladly does. [1] Upon reading it, he cries once he sees the allusion to Uvogin's death. After the two talk and make their way to the auction, he knocks Neon unconscious with a swift blow to the back of her neck in order to get the Mafia members to call an ambulance. He then kills multiple assassins with ease [14] and dedicates the requiem to Uvogin while his other comrades massacre the police and 2,000 Mafia members guarding the building. [15] [31]

HxH2011 EP53 Chrollo after the Zoldyck fight

Chrollo after his fight against the Zoldycks

As the Troupe’s massacre continues outside, Chrollo is cornered in the building’s basement by Silva and Zeno Zoldyck . [31] Noticing how skilled Zeno is, Chrollo fights with the intention of stealing his abilities. However, Zeno sees through him and has him pinned against the wall while Silva throws two huge aura spheres at them, triggering an enormous explosion. [19] Silva's transmitter suddenly rings, and Illumi informs him that the Ten Dons have been eliminated and that Chrollo was the one who hired him. Since Silva and Zeno were hired by the Ten Dons, they tell Chrollo that he is no longer their target now that the Dons are dead, leaving Chrollo alone and exhausted as he tells himself that he wouldn’t have been able to steal Zeno’s ability. Chrollo then contacts the other members and tells them to forget about the ambulance and that they will go ahead as planned. [32]

Chrollo's Death

Chrollo's fake corpse

The Troupe then makes use of Kortopi 's ability to fool the Mafia with fake corpses of five members, [33] taking over the rescheduled Underground Auction held on the building’s 10 th floor and selling the copies of the items made by Kortopi’s ability. [32] After that, he and the other members return to their hideout and celebrate their successful plan. [33] The following day, Chrollo tells the Troupe that they will leave Yorknew that night once they retrieve the rest of the loot, but Nobunaga insists on finding the chain user. [21] In order to persuade Nobunaga, he uses Neon’s stolen ability to tell the fortunes of Nobunaga and the other members, and they learn that five more of them will die in the next two weeks if they keep chasing after the chain user. They then intend to leave Yorknew to avoid the fortunes, [24] but Hisoka alters his own with his Texture Surprise so that the Troupe will stay in Yorknew and he will have the chance to fight Chrollo. [34]

Chrollo, Machi, and Shizuku confronting their pursuers

Chrollo, Machi, and Shizuku confronting their pursuers

Later, Chrollo is able to deduce that Kurapika is one of Neon's bodyguards and a surviving member of the Kurta Clan . Thanks to a pair of copied Scarlet Eyes that they sold to the Nostrade Family the night before, they determine that he and the other bodyguards are staying at the Hotel Beitacle . Chrollo then tells Kortopi, Machi, Nobunaga, Pakunoda, and Shizuku to go with him to the hotel. [35] [36] On the way, noticing that they are being followed by two people, he tells Kortopi, Nobunaga and Pakunoda to go ahead while he, Machi, and Shizuku stay behind. They then capture Gon and Killua again. [10] Meanwhile, Pakunoda and the other two are able to learn Kurapika's name and face after capturing and killing Squala . [37]

Chrollo, Machi, and Shizuku take the two boys to the hotel [37] and meet up with Pakunoda's group in the lobby. He tells Pakunoda to check their memories again, but before she can reveal what she has learned about Kurapika, a power outage suddenly happens, allowing Gon and Killua to make an escape attempt. However, Machi and Nobunaga easily recapture them despite the total darkness. Shizuku is then the first one to notice that Chrollo is missing. [38]

HxH2011 EP57 Chrollo captured and Kurapika stating his demands

Chrollo remaining calm even after being captured

After the others also realize that Chrollo is missing, Pakunoda reads a note left by Kurapika that threatens Chrollo's life if she reveals Gon and Killua's memories to the others. Nobunaga tells her to stay quiet while they wait for the chain user's call, stressing that they need to keep the two boys as hostages. In a flashback, Pakunoda remembers the formation of the Troupe in Meteor City where Chrollo stressed the importance of the Spider as a whole, telling them to never forget that someone else will take over if he dies. Back in the present, Pakunoda considers betraying the Spider to save Chrollo and wonders what Chrollo would do, with Nobunaga calling Phinks and telling him to hurry after revealing that Chrollo was captured. Sitting chained in the seat next to Kurapika as Leorio drives, Chrollo says that he didn't think the chain user would be a woman, but Kurapika quickly removes his wig and warns him that his words could be his last. Chrollo then reminds Kurapika that he can't kill him since he left his friends behind. He then points out that the encounter wasn't even mentioned in his fortune, which means that it's entirely insignificant, causing Kurapika to fly into a rage. [13]

Phinks, Feitan , and Shalnark soon arrive at the hotel. The Troupe members receive a call from Kurapika, who tells them not to follow him, not to hurt the hostages, and to give the phone to Pakunoda. He then tells Pakunoda to go to Lingon Airport alone to negotiate the terms of a hostage exchange and that the other members have to return to their hideout. Phinks, Feitan, and Shalnark try to follow Pakunoda, but Nobunaga stops them for fear that Chrollo will be killed, leading to a heated quarrel between the two groups, with Feitan stressing that Chrollo would agree with their decision to follow her and that Nobunaga’s way of thinking is an insult to the Spiders. The quarrel is eventually settled, and the Troupe members agree to return to the hideout. [39]

Meanwhile, after Chrollo again provokes Kurapika, the latter punches him in the face multiple times before Leorio and Melody calm him down. As Chrollo stresses that he’s worthless as a hostage, Melody listens to his heartbeat and says that he enjoys the fact that death is always near him. Kurapika asks if he was the Troupe’s leader five years earlier when they massacred the Kurta Clan, but Chrollo stays silent as Kurapika readies his Judgment Chain . Chrollo then asks if he used the chain to kill Uvogin, also asking about his final words. He again refuses to answer Kurapika, who feels powerless about having to keep Chrollo alive. As Kurapika backs down and calls back Pakunoda, Chrollo realizes that Kurapika will prioritize his friends over his mission, hoping that Pakunoda will bring the others with her to the meeting. [12]

When Kurapika meets Pakunoda aboard an airship, he uses his Judgment Chain on both her and Chrollo, setting two conditions for each of them (with Chrollo forbidden from using Nen and from communicating with other Troupe members). He then tells her to return to the airport with the hostages by midnight and to not tell the others where she is going. After Pakunoda agrees and returns to the hideout, she tells the others about the exchange and that she is leaving with just the two boys. Phinks becomes so angry that he wants to get rid of them and then go after the chain user, [40] but Machi and Kortopi side with Pakunoda. They prepare to confront Phinks and Feitan, who think that she and the others are being manipulated by the chain user, but Gon interrupts their quarrel and emphasizes that Pakunoda just wants to save their leader. Phinks finally agrees to let Pakunoda leave after Franklin tells him that if they all keep fighting, it will be the end of the Troupe. [41]


Chrollo heading east after losing the ability to use Nen

Just before the exchange, Hisoka unexpectedly appears and threatens to kill Gon and Killua if he cannot board Pakunoda’s airship. Kurapika has no choice but to let him go to the exchange site with them. After the exchange is successful, Kurapika looks down on Chrollo and hopes that he realizes what it’s like to have all his support systems taken away. Standing opposite him, Hisoka happily challenges Chrollo to a fight. [41] He then reveals that he has never been a true member of the Troupe, removing the fake Spider tattoo from his back, and points out that it won’t be considered in-fighting now. Chrollo laughs and tells Hisoka that he isn’t worth fighting since Kurapika stabbed him with his Judgment Chain and rendered him unable to use Nen. Losing interest, Hisoka quickly leaves and tells Pakunoda that he isn’t interested in broken toys, assuring her that Chrollo isn’t in danger from him anymore. As Pakunoda sacrifices herself to give her memories to the founding members of the Troupe, Chrollo stands alone at the exchange site and looks toward the east. [42]

Greed Island arc

Chrollo awaits

Chrollo waiting for the Troupe to find the Nen exorcist on Greed Island

After Phinks and Feitan encounter Gon and Killua at the Southernpiece Auction , the former tells them that the Troupe can’t kill the chain user since Nen doesn’t necessarily disappear after death and sometimes seek out the object of the user’s hatred. He then worries about Chrollo’s safety, but Feitan stops him before he can say anything else aloud. Phinks assures himself that Chrollo is looking for a skilled exorcist and that they just need to wait for him to return. [43]

After seeing Chrollo’s name in his Greed Island book, Shalnark points out to the other Troupe members that the island is located due east of Yorknew. As they all remember the connection to his fortune, Shalnark guesses that Chrollo traveled there by sea and was teleported away by Razor , but because he can’t use Nen, he hired someone to play the game for him and to use his name as a message to them. As Shalnark adds that the Nen exorcist is on the island, Hisoka reveals himself and says that while Chrollo hired him, it was his own idea to use his name. Franklin guesses that Hisoka’s reward for helping Chrollo is a duel, and Shalnark assures the others that it’s only a matter of time until Chrollo returns. At that point, a smiling Chrollo is seen at an undisclosed location sitting in front of a JoyStation Console . Killua calls Kurapika and tells him about the situation, but Kurapika assures him that his Nen has not been removed from Chrollo. After Kurapika hangs up, he tells himself that while it isn’t Chrollo, it’s not unrelated. [44]

Finally locating the exorcist Abengane with the help of their new member Kalluto , the Troupe has Hisoka make a deal with him so that he will remove Kurapika's Judgment Chain from Chrollo's heart. [45]

Chimera Ant arc

Chrollo is seen reading an issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump as Hisoka and Abengane approach him. [46]

After several Troupe members defeat multiple Chimera Ants including Zazan near Meteor City, Nobunaga texts Shalnark and asks for their help, with Phinks left disappointed that it wasn’t Chrollo contacting them. [47]

13 th Hunter Chairman Election arc

When Hisoka is left confused by Illumi’s mention of Ants and Netero ’s death, Illumi tells him that he missed a lot while he was chasing after Chrollo, adding that he might have had the chance to fight the Ants or Netero otherwise. [48]

Succession Contest arc

Chap 351 - Chrollo's Sun and Moon

Chrollo revealing one of his new abilities

Chrollo finally decides to accept Hisoka's challenge and fights him at Heavens Arena , where he is a Floor Master . The two agree that the chase has become boring and start a match to the death. As Chrollo takes control of the referee with Shalnark's ability, Hisoka realizes that Chrollo was avoiding him after the exorcism so that he could collect abilities for the fight. Chrollo then uses the referee as a decoy to perform a feint and catch Hisoka off guard. After a brief but furious exchange of blows which sees Hisoka strictly on the defensive, Hisoka kills the referee, but Chrollo reveals two more abilities: an explosive mark and a bookmark that allows him to use a stolen ability without having to hold his book open. The two discuss Chrollo's new abilities, and he declares that he will show Hisoka three more, adding that Hisoka should be honored that he will be using the most abilities it has ever taken him to kill someone. [5]

Chap 353 - Chrollo lands a hit

Chrollo kicking Hisoka into the floor

Chrollo then introduces Hisoka to another ability, Order Stamp . After putting the bookmark on that page, he creates a copy of the referee's body with Kortopi's Nen ability and uses the stamp to make it attack Hisoka. However, thanks to Chrollo's explanation, Hisoka easily deactivates Order Stamp by beheading the puppet. Chrollo finally shows the last ability he has prepared, Convert Hands . Much to Hisoka's annoyance, before the two can trade blows again, Chrollo reveals that one of his abilities belongs to someone who is already dead. He is surprised that Hisoka instantly realizes it is because the user's Nen has become stronger after his death. The ability in question is The Sun and Moon , which Chrollo has acquired in Meteor City. Thanks to the creator's resolve, once affixed, the marks will never disappear unless they explode. After finishing his explanation, Chrollo states that his victory is certain and asks Hisoka if he still wants to continue. When Hisoka consents, Chrollo thinks to himself that humans are fascinating creatures. After Chrollo runs away from Hisoka, the two end up in the audience, two of whom Chrollo manipulates to attack Hisoka while disguising himself with Convert Hands . [11]

While Hisoka kills the manipulated spectators, Chrollo steals the clothes of another and puts them on, also retrieving the two antennae. He then places the bookmark on Gallery Fake and, after creating multiple copies with it, opens his book to Order Stamp in order to have around thirty of them attack Hisoka. As Hisoka is forced to retreat, Chrollo uses the opening to get behind him, switching the type of attack at the last second to trick him, causing Hisoka to fall into the crowd of puppets. While Hisoka fights them off, Chrollo damages him with a hit-and-run tactic, striking from his blind spots and blending in with the crowd. When Hisoka attempts to counter his next ambush attack with Bungee Gum , Chrollo dodges and kicks him to the ground, confidently saying that he saw it coming. However, he is hit by a second projectile that Hisoka had prepared. [49]

Hisoka lands one more hit with the other projectile, but Chrollo manages to keep hold of the book and retreat into the audience. Unbeknownst to Hisoka, Chrollo uses this chance to identify the puppet whose head Hisoka had taken and places a fully charged plus symbol on its body. [50] While Hisoka disables his puppets, Chrollo controls one spectator with Black Voice and gives him his appearance with Convert Hands . Hisoka finds the substitute and gives chase, killing it. [51] Chrollo then steals the announcer's microphone and orders all his puppets to attack Hisoka. While Hisoka destroys them, Chrollo uses his phone to order a controlled human on whom he has affixed a fully charged symbol to trigger an explosion that seriously injures Hisoka's left hand. [52]

Chap 356 - Chrollo overwhelming Hisoka

Chrollo overwhelming Hisoka

Chrollo smiles with satisfaction at the explosion and orders some puppets on whose hands he has affixed fully powered symbols to climb to the second floor and, when Hisoka is in range, to blow themselves up. The blast wounds Hisoka and severs one of his legs. When Hisoka tries to break his fall by using Bungee Gum , Chrollo throws two spectators at him, causing him to fall back down into the ring filled with puppets. As Hisoka realizes that he may die and prepares to try something, the puppets swarm around him and cause an enormous explosion. [50]

After the fight, Chrollo tasks Shalnark, Kortopi, and Machi with verifying Hisoka's death. Meanwhile, the media report that one of the combatants may have used a bomb that killed Hisoka along with many spectators. Chrollo is then seen on the phone with Shalnark where the two discuss plans to board the ship headed to the New Continent and to steal the treasure of Kakin ’s royalty. Chrollo then asks Shalnark about returning his cell phone, but points out that there are no antennae. Shalnark says that he is okay for now, and Chrollo replies that he will give it to them on board the ship, with Shalnark looking forward to the entire Troupe getting back together. [53]

Chrollo's first appearance in Black Whale

Chrollo distraught after the deaths of Kortopi and Shalnark

In a crowded area on Tier 5 of the Black Whale , a man steps on a cockroach and says that they seem to find their way everywhere. He notices the dejected expression of a person sitting opposite him and says that he looks like he’s about to kill someone. After the person is revealed to be Chrollo, the man adds that he probably endured a lot to get onboard and tells him to forget about all his ties to the old world. However, Chrollo replies that it would be difficult since ties are meant to be severed, not forgotten. [16]

On the second day of the Black Whale’s voyage, Chrollo meets up with Machi at a crowded market in Tier 5. Both of them want to be the one to kill Hisoka after the deaths of Kortopi and Shalnark. Machi suggests flipping a coin, but Chrollo reminds her that coins are for disputes between two individuals, stressing that every member of the Troupe (including himself) wants to kill Hisoka. He then tells her to find Hisoka and guarantees that he’s somewhere on the ship. [17]

Chap 377 - Phantom Troupe members

The current Troupe members gathering together

All current members of the Phantom Troupe gather together in the crowded central dining hall , where Chrollo hears the reports about their fruitless search for Hisoka. They conclude that Hisoka is not in Tier 5, though the upper tiers are controlled by two other Mafia families. Chrollo encourages their newest member, Illumi, to introduce himself. He shares that he and Hisoka once had a give-and-take relationship, but Hisoka has now requested that he join the Troupe and have Hisoka as his assassination target. A group from the Cha-R Family then interrupts their meeting, with the leader rudely asking them to move from their table. Chrollo refuses and asks them to find somewhere else instead. The Mafia leader stops his subordinates from initiating a fight and identifies Chrollo and the others as the Phantom Troupe. According to the leader, the Troupe's rampage in Yorknew City allowed them easier access to the New Continent . The leader further orders the Troupe to do their business elsewhere. Before leaving, Chrollo tells him that they are looking for someone over 190 cm with an unpleasant air about him. The leader suggests that they look at the Royal Army 's passenger list, but adds that it will be a hard task since the upper tiers require tickets. He offers him a free pass if they join the Cha-R Family, but Chrollo politely declines. Instead, he asks about gaining access to Tier 1 , which prompts the Mafia leader to quickly dismiss his cockiness, telling him to get lost. [4]

Chap 377 - Spiders moving out

The Spiders splitting up to find Hisoka

As the members walk away, Phinks muses that the leader showed his hand when Chrollo mentioned Tier 1, implying that there might be treasure hidden there. Chrollo stresses that they need to find Hisoka before going after any treasure. With the information they have all gathered, he orders the Troupe to bring him Hisoka's head, after which they can celebrate. Soon after the group splits up, Shizuku and Bonolenov ask Chrollo if he wants to team up. Chrollo agrees to work with them, but stresses that he will be the one to kill Hisoka. Shizuku points out that both her and Bonolenov's abilities don't work well against Hisoka's Bungee Gum , and Chrollo replies that he plans to attack Hisoka as soon as he sees him. Shizuku says that she will look for Hisoka in disguise, and Bonolenov says that he will transform rather than disguise himself, explaining that he will use his Battle Cantabile: Metamorphosen . He adds that while he can take many forms, he isn't strategic enough to come up with a plan, asking Chrollo for help. After Chrollo gives Bonolenov advice on how to use his ability, Shizuku asks Chrollo if he can read their fortunes again, hoping that it will give them some clues. However, Chrollo reveals that the ability disappeared from his book, and after realizing the implication, Shizuku likens Chrollo's book to the Death Note . As Chrollo stays silent, Bonolenov tells Shizuku that she keeps thinking that. [4]

The three are last seen making their way from Tier 5 to Tier 4 through the central passage. [54] On the seventh day of the voyage, after Phinks, Nobunaga, and Feitan discuss the current situation with Ken'i and Tajao , Phinks asks them to verify Morena 's location while they contact the other Troupe members and hunt down the hit man . [55] On the tenth day of the voyage, after Onior confirms with Hinrigh that Hisoka isn't in Tier 4, he says that he can permit the Spiders to search that tier. [56]

Chrollo's Benz knife 2011

Chrollo holding a Ben's knife

Ben's Knife: Chrollo is in possession of one of the famous Ben's knives , forged in Delon 's central period. It has a black hilt with a slightly curved knuckle guard, similar to a D guard. Near the guard, the blade branches in two segments. The central one is the longest. It ends up with a sharp arrow point. The second segment is curved and serves as the edge of the knife. Its tip almost touches one of the central segments. A third segment acts as the back of the blade. It is connected to the others through two horizontal bars. Ben's knives are renowned for their exceptional sharpness, which allowed Chrollo to cut Silva's skin, a feat that led the assassin to recognize the weapon’s quality. Silva also judged from the blade’s shape that it was toxic. The toxin was so powerful, in fact, that 0.1 mg could paralyze a whale. Chrollo concealed it in a curved scabbard under his clothes. [31]

Antennae: Chrollo carried Shalnark’s two antennae with him to activate Black Voice . [5] According to Hisoka , a fishing line may have been used to retrieve them. [49] However, both were lost/destroyed during the fight. [51] [53]

Cell Phone: In order to use Shalnark's ability, Chrollo also borrowed his special bat-shaped telephone, [5] which was still in Chrollo’s possession at the time of Shalnark’s death. [53]

Abilities & Powers

As the leader of the Phantom Troupe , Chrollo is an exceptional fighter and revered as the strongest by most of its members. Machi ranks him cleanly above Hisoka , [57] who has consistently desired a fight against the Troupe's leader far more than any other Spider. [34] However, Chrollo tends to hold back if his opponent possesses an ability that interests him so that he can steal it. [19] He was able to fight against Silva and Zeno Zoldyck simultaneously, both extremely proficient assassins, without leaving any openings for the former to exploit, though he was unable to cause significant damage to either of them and was ultimately saved by Illumi fulfilling his contract. [32] In the past, he survived a confrontation with Silva, [19] and Zeno stated that he would surely win if Chrollo fought to steal his ability, but that his victory would be less certain if Chrollo were serious about killing him. [19] His greatest achievement on the battlefield may be his victory at Heavens Arena against Hisoka, another extremely powerful Nen user who at the time had no record of past defeats or even proof of struggling in fights. [53]

Chrollo’s fighting style is adaptable and combines speed with deadly precision. He is able to kill skilled assassins with just a pen, sometimes even remaining concealed with Zetsu , [31] not even using Nen as a result. Chrollo is also endowed with extraordinary strategic abilities as well as astounding strength of mind and willpower, even by the standards of the Troupe.

Preternatural Perception: While chased by Kurapika and Gon , Chrollo was able to sense that he was being followed as well as the direction from which his pursuers were approaching, whereas five other Troupe members failed to detect anything unusual even after he warned them. [10]

Enhanced Strength: Chrollo ranked seventh in arm-wrestling among the Troupe. [6] However, his rank is excellent given that Specialists are the weakest in employing Enhancement skills. He is nonetheless able to pierce through skulls with an ordinary pen. [14] He is also capable of lifting adult males and throwing them over a distance of multiple meters using only one arm and while standing on top of a balcony. [50]

Chrollo dodging Zeno's strikes

Immense Speed and Reflexes: Chrollo was able to fight Silva and Zeno at the same time, avoiding or blocking their powerful attacks effectively. [31] According to Pakunoda , he would have no trouble dodging an attack lasting 0.2 seconds. [13] He landed a hand chop on the neck of Neon Nostrade that was so fast that neither the people in the hall nor people watching through the cameras (besides Assassin A who had to replay the surveillance footage) could detect his movement. [14] In his match against Hisoka, he was able to steal a person's clothes, put them on, create more than thirty puppets with Gallery Fake , and blend into the crowd again all in a brief period of time. [49]

Enhanced Agility: Chrollo can run on the sides of buildings, and easily jump horizontally from one to another. [10] He also deftly dodged many of Zeno's long-distance attacks while never losing sight of Silva and quickly recovered his balance the few times he was hit. [19] During his fight against Hisoka, he was able to dodge a fast-moving projectile while in mid-air. [49]

Genius-level Intellect: Despite his young age, Chrollo is the leader of the infamous Phantom Troupe. His plans usually go smoothly, and he has shown himself to be both knowledgeable and intuitive. He was able to trick the Mafia into thinking that he and several of his comrades had died. [33] Even when he was a child, he was proficient in at least three languages. [58]

Master Strategist: Chrollo is highly intelligent. He managed to predict part of the chain user’s strategy of vengeance, though he was ultimately outsmarted by both Kurapika and Hisoka. He has complete control over his emotions, as demonstrated when he was captured by Kurapika and managed to take notice of the latter's weakness (that he would prioritize his friends over his mission). In his fight against the Zoldycks, Chrollo focused on stealing Zeno's ability in the midst of combat and left no openings for Silva to exploit, proving himself to be an efficient multitasker and quick-thinker. [19] Before fighting Hisoka, Chrollo prepared a strategy that, by his claim, granted him a sure chance of victory, [11] and indeed Hisoka, despite being a genius in combat, while able to respond and hold his own for a period, managed to anticipate only one [49] of Chrollo's moves. [5] [11] [49]

Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Chrollo's defense is top-class. He managed to put up a good fight against the two Zoldycks, using his skills at unarmed combat almost exclusively to block and dodge. He managed to confront Zeno and avoid his attacks at the last second in order to prevent Silva from exploiting his openings, keeping an eye on him the whole time. While he was mainly forced on the defensive in the aforementioned fight, he has also shown incredible offensive abilities when he knocked Neon unconscious and took care of the other assassins hired by the Mafia. Assassin A noted that Chrollo’s chop against Neon was so fast that it would have beheaded her if not for the perfect control of his movement. [14] When Silva discovered Assassin D ’s corpse, he noted that he was killed with one strike from behind and that there was no signature of the killer’s bloodlust. [31] He also managed to fool Hisoka twice with a feint, inflicting considerable damage even while holding his book. [5] [49]

Proficient Weapon Specialist: Chrollo defeated and killed multiple skilled Nen users wielding just a normal pen. [14] He was able to injure Silva's arm with a Ben's knife (the sole injury he could inflict during the confrontation), demonstrating his skills with this type of weapon. [31]

Chrollo Fight Ready

Chrollo's aura

Chrollo is a Specialist . [31] His talent for Nen is judged prodigious not only for his age but even by the standards of masters in the discipline. His Zetsu was noted by Silva to be flawless, allowing him to sneak up on his opponent and kill them without leaving the faintest trace of bloodlust, [31] although Hisoka was able to sense it an instant on at least one occasion. [49] Like other skilled Nen users, he is capable of maintaining a state of Ten at all times. [4] His prolonged use of Ren in confrontations [31] [19] suggests that he can use Ken as well. He also has knowledge of Gyo . [10] The technique he relies on the most, however, appears to be Hatsu , with Chrollo proving to be extremely versatile in the technique. He has been able to employ numerous stolen abilities in battle to great effect, despite them using different Nen types , and has even utilized multiple Nen abilities simultaneously, in turn demonstrating his copious aura reserve. It is currently unknown whether this is entirely due to his skills, or if Skill Hunter allows him to mimic the proficiency of the ability’s original owner.

Although Chrollo ranked seventh in arm-wrestling among the Troupe. [6] it’s nevertheless impressive since Specialists are the weakest in employing Enhancement skills. Furthermore, his defensive usage of aura is so great that, despite fighting against both Silva and Zeno at the same time and enduring powerful blows, he took only relatively minor damage which did not impair his combat abilities, [31] [19] although he immediately understood that he would be unable to guard against Zeno's superior Gyo [19] and collapsed from exhaustion immediately after the end of the fight. [32]

Due to Kurapika's Judgment Chain , he was rendered unable to use Nen for a period of time. [40] After the exorcism was performed, he acquired new abilities for the purpose of fighting Hisoka. The creation of Double Face [5] and his explanation of The Sun and Moon [11] imply that he knows about loopholes and post-mortem Nen , respectively.

Stolen Abilities

Former stolen abilities.

  • (To Uvogin) "I don't consider Judas to be a traitor. They say Judas sold Jesus over for 30 silver coins. How much would this traitor sell us out for? Think about it. What would he gain by selling us to the Mafia? Money? Fame? Status? Would that really gratify any one of us." [27]
  • (To Neon) "I believe that we have a soul. So I want to fulfill my dead friend 's wish... to wreak havoc." [14]
  • "Dear Uvo... can you hear this? We dedicate this requiem to you." [15]
  • (To Gon ) "You have a lot of hostility for someone who's surrendered." [10]
  • (To Gon ) "I don't know. It might be because they have nothing to do with me. When I'm asked like that, it's hard to answer. I don't much like to talk about my motives. But surprisingly... or rather, as I expected... the reason is the key to understanding myself..." [10]
  • (During the founding of the Troupe) "Together, we are the Spider. I'm its head, and you're the legs. The legs do what the head says. But there will be times when the legs are more important than the head. If I die, someone else will take over. My orders are of the utmost priority. My life is not. Be sure to make the right decision. I'm only a part of the Spider . What's important is the survival of the whole , not the individual." [13]
  • (To Kurapika) "You can't kill me. You left your precious friends behind. This wasn't even in my fortune. That means it wasn't worth mentioning. This situation is insignificant. " [13]
  • (To Kurapika) "Is that the chain you used to kill Uvo? What did he say to you before he died?" [12]
  • (To Hisoka) "Unlike Order Stamp ’s owner, the elder thought there wasn't much difference between humans and puppets. I tend to agree." [11]
  • (To Hisoka) "I'm not saying this as a challenge, but I'll win. I'm 100 percent sure." [11]
  • (To himself) "Humans... are so very... interesting." [11]
  • (To a Black Whale passenger) "Ties are to be severed... not forgotten." [16]
  • (To Machi) "Coins are for disputes between individuals. Everyone wants to kill him this time. Of course... that includes me...!" [17]
  • (To the Spiders) "We want to have a party, but there's no cake. We need a special order to place in the center of the table. When we get it, we'll get back together and dine at that table. Bring me Hisoka's head...!! " [4]
  • In the Hunter × Hunter - Sôshû-hen - Treasure Vol. 4 extra book cover, which precedes the most recent version given in Vol. 34, his surname is slightly different: " Quwrof Wrlccywrlfr ".
  • In the official English translation of Chapter 55 , Chrollo's name is written as " Chrolo ", and in Chapter 95 , his surname is written as " Lusilfer ", both of which were their first appearances.
  • It is unconfirmed when exactly Chrollo became a Floor Master at Heavens Arena. Since Hisoka allied himself with Kurapika because he did not know how to track down Chrollo outside of the Troupe's gatherings, [8] it seems plausible that Chrollo started competing at the Heavens Arena only after his exorcism.
  • The copies of a person created by Kortopi with Gallery Fake are identical to the original in every aspect, even when dissected. [21] However, when Chrollo used the ability, the beheaded copies released a small amount of clear fluid instead of blood. [11]
  • Currently, Chrollo has demonstrated usage of the highest number of individual Nen abilities. This remains the case even when the two abilities that he may have lost possession of following the original owners' deaths are excluded.
  • According to the "Hunter × Hunter Manual" section found in the Yu ☆ Yu ☆ Hakusho official character book (Shueisha Jump remix), * Chrollo's stats are:

Anime and Manga Differences

Kuroro Lucifer

1999 anime (left)/Manga (middle)/2011 anime (right)

  • In the 1999 anime adaptation, Chrollo has his spider tattoo, without a number, on his right arm. [7] In the manga, there is no tattoo visible, [33] and the 2011 anime adaptation has Chrollo’s arm still covered by his sleeve. [63]

Intertextuality and References

  • Chrollo's character draws on biblical motifs, specifically diabolical ones: the inverted cross on his coat is often associated with Satanism , and his surname is obviously derived from Lucifer .
  • both are the leaders of their gang;
  • both are the smartest and most polite of their gang;
  • both have religious references. Sensui is known as the Dark Angel, Chrollo has a cross on his forehead, an inverted cross on his coat, and a last name very close to Lucifer;
  • and in the manga and the 2011 anime adaptation, a young Chrollo is seen playing with a videotape, possibly a reference to the Chapter Black tape stolen by Sensui.
  • Just like Rando, Chrollo stole an ability that allows him to shrink people (and objects).
  • Both can summon carnivorous fish to fight.
  • Suzaku from YuYu Hakusho made a cameo appearance as one of the victims listed in Chrollo’s book in the 2011 anime adaptation. [64]
  • The Sun and Moon is similar in appearance and effects to the style of alchemy used by Solf J. Kimblee in the series Fullmetal Alchemist .
  • Double Face' s literal name is the title of a song by Southern All Stars .
  • Chrollo's conjured book known as Bandit’s Secret , seen in Chapter 97 and on the cover of Volume 11 (released on March 2 nd , 2001 in tankōbon format), and the Yu-Gi-Oh! card The Secret of the Bandit (released on November 29 th , 2001), have the same original name in Japanese ( 盗 ( とう ) 賊 ( ぞく ) の ( ) 極 ( ごく ) 意 ( い ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) , Tōzoku no Gokui ).


When written in Japanese kanji, Chrollo is written as "クロロ" (Kuroro). "クロ" (Kuro) translates to black or darkness. "ロ" (Ro) is the 2nd note in the diatonic scale (used in key names, etc.) This suggests that the second "Ro" was added to make the name sound good and doesn't carry a literal significance. Thus, Chrollo's name means black or darkness. Considering his lifestyle and interest in understanding the darkness within the soul of people whose abilities he steals, it is fitting.

Other possible meanings include:

  • "黒絽"—"black silk" (referring to his clothing);
  • "枢"—"pivot hinge" or "lock bolt" (referring to his pivotal position in the Troupe );
  • or "黒ロリ" ( kuro rori )—"black lolita," the style he dresses in.
  • Otherwise, Crollo is an Italian word that means "collapse", which fits him because he hails from a place where society has collapsed, he was not always evil but rather descended into villainy after being broken by grief, and he had caused the collapse of the Yorknew City mafia.
  • The Hunter × Hunter OST (2011) refers to Chrollo as "The Man of the Reversed Cross," much like Hisoka's fortune.
  • Chrollo is played by Ryosei Konishi in the stage play, Hunter × Hunter: Real Stage .
  • In the second character popularity poll , Chrollo placed 4 th with 1,904 votes.
  • In the third character popularity poll , Chrollo placed 8 th with 764 votes.

30 Phantom Troupe Tattoo Ideas

In the show, each of the group members has a spider tattoo , which marks their membership in the Phantom Troupe gang. And that’s why tattoos hold so much value in this hit anime series. Let’s take a look at each Phantom Troupe tattoo meaning, and find out its significance in the show.

The most popular Phantom Troupe tattoo design is the twelve-legged spider. The head of the spider symbolizes the leader of the troupe, and the twelve legs stand for the twelve ever-changing group members.

Each spider tattoo has a unique number that is placed on the twelve-legged spider’s body. Also, the tattoos are a bit of a mystery in the show since only a few of them have actually been revealed. 

But that’s not it! The Phantom Troupe tattoo plays such an important role in the series that any member that chooses to join ‘The Spider’ gang can do so, but they must kill an existing member and get their tattoo first.

Even though the show’s main characters are portrayed as criminals and villains in the beginning, as the series progresses, the show throws a big curveball at you (SPOILER ALERT)!

The bad guys suddenly turn into good samaritans by indulging in philanthropic work in their hometown, The Meteor City. 

If you’re planning to get a Phantom Troupe tattoo, it’s highly recommended that you choose the tattoo that your favorite character has .

Each individual in this show has a unique storyline with its own twists and turns, so we’re certain that you’ll find a character that you can relate to the most.

Where To Get A Phantom Troupe Tattoo

30 Phantom Troupe Tattoo Ideas

In the show, each gang member’s tattoo is located on a different place of their body , which helps them remain anonymous when they want to be. 

Here is a list of some Phantom Troupe characters and the tattoo placements on their body:

  • Chrollo: cross-shaped tattoo on forehead
  • Shizuku: #8 tattoo on the lower left side of her belly
  • Uvogin: #11 tattoo on the lower back
  • Hisoka: #4 tattoo on the center of his back
  • Bonolenov: #10 tattoo (the location hasn’t been revealed yet)

Since most of the Phantom Troupe members haven’t revealed their tattoos yet, and only a few members’ tattoos are publicly known, there have been lots of fan theories online about this topic.

One such theory is that most of the gang have tattoos on their back. That’s because their backs are fully covered with their costumes in the show. 

However, Shizuku is one of the exceptions since she has a tattoo on the lower left side of her belly. This popular theory is also why most of the show’s fans prefer getting a Phantom Troupe tattoo on their backs .

So, if you want to get inked with a Phantom Troupe tattoo, you have plenty of options .

You can choose the same tattoo spot as your favorite character, or you can choose a location that makes it easy to flaunt your tattoo to the world. As another option, you can get it on your back just like Uvogin and Hisoka.

30 Best Phantom Troupe Tattoo Designs

Here are some popular Phantom Troupe tattoo designs you need to take a look at, especially if you’re planning to get a Phantom Troupe tattoo.

History Of The Phantom Troupe Tattoo

30 Phantom Troupe Tattoo Ideas

Phantom Troupe tattoos became a big sensation when the Japanese hit show was released in 1999, so there’s no history of these tattoos before that time period.

Yet, tattoos have a long and interesting history in Japan . Different tattoos in this country have their own cultural importance and traditional significance. Some designs depict social status, whereas some serve as a punishment for criminals and slaves.

A popular tattoo symbol in Japan is the Japanese dragon , which symbolizes wisdom, blessing, and strength. The Japanese Snake tattoos, on the other hand, represent change, transformation, and rebirth. 

Additionally, the Japanese supernatural creatures with evil features symbolize war and destruction. That’s why these supernatural tattoos are mostly red in color .

Plus, the Japanese fish tattoos stand for success, the ability to overcome struggles, wealth, determination, and courage.

Even though this culture celebrates tattoos and considers them to be an art form , there was a time when tattoo practices were banned in the country. This was done by a Japanese emperor in the Edo Period (from 1603 to 1867). 

This was also a time when tattoos turned into symbols of crime and offense , which is quite similar to Phantom Troupe’s entire plotline, isn’t it?

Fortunately, the country lifted its tattoo ban in 1948 , and ever since then, the land has flourished with many unique tattoo designs and tattoo artists.

In the 1980s, during the rock ‘n roll era, Japanese tattoos gained popularity and were sported by various American rock bands and youth alike. 

Most traditional Japanese tattoos have meanings that are derived from folklore, traditional tales, and legends that have been passed down through the generations.

That’s why it’s always recommended to get a Japanese tattoo in Japan since getting it anywhere else won’t give you the same mystical experience!

Which Celebrities Have A Phantom Troupe Tattoo?

30 Phantom Troupe Tattoo Ideas

Popular TikToker and Instagrammer Vinnie Hacker , who is well-known for his lip-syncing on TikTok and Instagram, has a Phantom Troupe tattoo of a spider on the center of his chest.

Apart from him, there aren’t many celebrities that sport a Phantom Troupe tattoo.

However, Demi Lovato recently got inked with a 3D spider on her scalp, and it looks eerily similar to the Phantom Troupe spider tattoo . In fact, this spider looks so realistic that the star had to shave an inch of hair off her scalp before getting inked.

Later on, when explaining the meaning of her newest tattoo on Instagram Stories, Demi wrote, “She taught us about pottery and weaving. She taught us about fire and light and dark. She taught us that we are all connected on the web – each one of us having our place in the world.”  

We absolutely love Demi’s explanation of her tattoo! Her poetic words perfectly describe how much it means to her.

If you’re considering getting inked, each tattoo you get should symbolize and signify something important to you . This is especially true since tattoos are permanent, so they’ll be with you for a long time. 

For instance, you might want a tattoo design that represents a phase of your life, your life mantra, or something you believe in, which is exactly what Demi did when she got her tattoo.

Apart from being beautiful pieces of art, tattoos are also regarded as one of the best conversation starters and head turners . So, if you don’t mind getting some extra attention, a visit to a tattoo parlor might be a good choice for you.

Also, the next time you decide to get inked, think about how the tattoo relates to your personality and what message you want to communicate through it because these factors are ultra-important when choosing your body art.

21 killer phantom troupe tattoos.

  • October 22, 2022

The Phantom Troupe is a clan of thieves from the 1999 anime series Hunter x Hunter. In the show, the 13 members famously had spider tattoos signifying their role in the clan.

Since the show ended, fans across the world have gotten tattoos to remember the show – ranging from interpretations of the clan’s spider tattoos to representations of the characters.

This spider deviates from the spider tattoo in the Hunter x Hunter with more embellishment and details. The spider has 12 legs but no number on its body. The metallic design on its body and hints of gold on its legs make it stand out.

This tattoo is closer to the Phantom Troupe’s tattoos but is still personalized with hints of spiderweb between its legs. The placement on the elbow give the tattoo more dimension as it’s able to bend and move.

This tattoo is based on the character Shalnark, one of the antagonists from Hunter x Hunter. The portrait is created using no shading and very economic line work.

This tattoo is of Chrollo Lucifer, found of Phantom Troupe and member 0. Placing the tattoo on the upper arm in a triangle facing downward uses the natural shape of the body to frame the design.

Selectively using color, tattoo is dynamic yet simple. Stacking the eyes on top of each other fits will on the forearm.

Referencing Hunter x Hunter’s Manga origins, this tattoo of Hisoka Morow is a classic, playful way to honor the show.

This colorful rendering of Hisoka Morrow represents the character’s personality. Hisoka is a magical serial killer and former member number 4 of Phantom Troupe. The bright colors and playful design draw you into the tattoo.

Another way to represent the characters without getting a full portrait, is by using geometric shapes to fragment images. The simplicity of this design gives it a clean, attractive appeal.

The tattoo artist cleverly used a tarot card motif to represent the character’s identifying qualities.

This watercolor depiction of Feitan, temporary leader and number 2 member of Phantom Troupe, is a colorful, eye catching remembrance of Hunter x Hunter.

What sets this tattoo apart is the quality of the colors. The artist used the tattoo owner’s skin to shade the character, giving it a lifelike quality, then was able to make all of the colors opaque. It almost looks like a pastel drawing.

This tattoo depicts the eyes of a villain from Hunter x Hunter. By coloring just the eyes a soft magenta, the tattoo is subtly eye catching.

This tattoo is just adorable, the design comes across as a refined doodle and the disheveled character is a playful twist on the typically serious Phantom Troupe members.

This forearm tattoo shows the entire Phantom Troupe walking together like a motley crew. It’s horizontal orientation and movement fit perfectly on the forearm.

Playing with Hisoka’s status as a magician, this tattoo features a lot of visually appealing imagery like cards and lightning. Anime style and bright colors give this tattoo life.

Here we have a simple and understated design, strategically using blue and amber to accent the portrait. The character’s smirk is fun touch.

This Hisoka tattoo has been designed with unexpected accents and details. The arms are curvy and the hands have fine lines and veins running through them, showing the artist took some liberties interpreting the character.

Most of the tattoos we’ve seen are placed on the arms or thighs, this one leans into the feeling of Hunter x Hunter giving the wear something akin to “eyes in the back of their head.”

Most depictions of Hisoka are brightly colored and wild, this one took a subtler approach and it paid off. The shading and minimal use of color is crisp.

A classic homage to Phantom Troupes Manga roots. Bold and high contrast, using stippling to put the character in shadow to represent the Phantom Troupe’s roll as villains.

The Phantom Troupe is a famous street gang known for its distinctive tattoos. Each member of the troupe has a tattoo on their left shoulder. This unique and ominous tattoo serves as a warning to anyone crossing the Phantom Troupe. It also helps to identify gang members, including hunter x hunter, which can be helpful in times of trouble.

The Phantom Troupe members were formed in Japan in the early 1990s. At that time, the group was composed of refugees from several different countries. They all had one thing in common: they were all wanted criminals. The group’s leader, Chrollo Lucilfer, had a unique ability that allowed him to control the minds of others. This gave the Phantom Troupe performers a distinct advantage in the criminal underworld.

The character Phantom Troupe has since become one of the most feared gangs in the world. They are wanted for a wide variety of crimes, including robbery, kidnapping, and murder. They are also known for their violent and unpredictable behavior. Members of the troupe are not afraid to use violence to get what they want. They often take great pleasure in inflicting pain on others.

Despite their dangerous reputation, the Phantom Troupe is also fiercely loyal to one another. They will go to great lengths to protect their members. This makes them a formidable force to be reckoned with.

So, if you ever see a spider tattooed on someone’s shoulder, you know you’re dealing with a member of the Phantom Troupe. Be careful because they are not to be trifled with.

What does a phantom troupe numbers tattoo mean?

The Phantom Troupe was an infamous gang of thieves during the Yorknew City arc in 1999. Their leader Chrollo Lucilfer has a spider tattoo on his right palm , and all members have this spider-web pattern with a number underneath it tattooed on their bodies, representing their rank within the group.

For example, the ringleader Chrollo’s spider tattoo represents “000”. In 1999, there were about 27 or 28 people in The Phantom Troupe whenever they appeared. But nowadays, only 7 of them are known to be alive because some of them were killed by Kurapika, Pakunoda died from being shot by Chrollo, and two people committed suicide.

Some fans believe that getting a tattoo like this is a way of sacrificing one’s life for the group and showing dedication. They can be found on any body part, including the back, hand , elbow , and shoulder.

The Ph a ntom Troupe Tattoo And Its Meaning

The Phantom Troupe is a group of skilled and dangerous criminals in the popular anime series "Hunter x Hunter." Each member of the Troupe has a spider tattoo on their body, which represents their status as killers and their willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve their goals. The Phantom Troupe tattoo is an iconic symbol that is highly recognizable to fans of the series.

The meaning of the Phantom Troupe tattoo is twofold. On the one hand , it serves as a symbol of the wearer's allegiance to the group. It shows that they are willing to kill for the Troupe and that they are willing to die for the cause. On the other hand, the tattoo also represents the wearer's skills as a killer. It is a reminder to others that they should be respected and feared. For fans of "Hunter x Hunter," the Phantom Troupe tattoo is a symbol of the series' complex and intriguing characters and storylines.

The Troupe is known for its brutality and is responsible for some of the most heinous crimes in the world. The members of the Troupe all have the same tattoo, which is how they got their names. The tattoo is typically located on a visible part of the body, such as the arm or chest , and is meant to be a symbol of their loyalty to the group.

All members of the Phantom Troupe, except for Chrollo, have a tattoo of a twelve-legged spider somewhere on their body. Each member's number within the group is represented by a different part of the spider tattoo. Feitan Portor and Hisoka Morow are known for their spider tattoos, and both have important roles within the Troupe. Feitan is the second-in-command, while Hisoka is a former member who left the group after falling in love with someone outside of the Troupe. Chrollo, the leader of the Troupe, is unique in that he does not have a spider tattoo. However, he does have the ability to steal other people's Nen abilities.

The only people whose tattoos have been seen are Shizuku and the now-deceased Uvogin. It is unclear how these numbers are assigned.

Although the twelve-legged spider is recognized as the emblem of the Troupe, its numbering isn't quite as well known.

Best Phantom Troupe Tattoo Placements and their pain levels

There are several locations on the body where the Phantom Troupe tattoo can be placed. Some common locations include the arm , chest, and back.

General Breakdown Of Tattoo Pain Levels On Different Body Parts

Here is a breakdown of the different tattoo pain levels:

  • Low : This level of pain is generally described as a mild discomfort or tickling sensation. It is similar to the sensation of getting a light scratch or scrape.
  • Moderate : This level of pain is generally described as a moderate discomfort or aching sensation. It is similar to the sensation of getting a deep scratch or scrape or being pinched.
  • High : This level of pain is generally described as a strong discomfort or throbbing sensation. It is similar to the sensation of getting a burn or being stung by a bee.

It's important to note that pain tolerance is highly individual and can vary greatly from person to person. Some people may find certain body parts more or less painful than others, and the same body part can be more or less painful for different people. Additionally, the level of pain can be affected by factors such as the size and location of the tattoo, the skill of the tattoo artist, and the individual's own pain threshold.

Tattoo aftercare tips, before getting a tattoo:.

Choose a reputable tattoo artist and parlor. Research the artist's portfolio and read reviews from previous clients.

Consult with the artist about the design and placement of the tattoo.

Make sure you are in good health. If you have any medical conditions or are taking any medications that may affect your ability to heal, be sure to let your tattoo artist know.

Consider using a numbing cream to reduce pain during the tattooing process. These creams contain a numbing agent (such as lidocaine) that can be applied to the skin before the tattoo is done. It's important to follow the instructions on the numbing cream and to only use it as directed.

Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and other substances that can thin your blood for at least 24 hours before getting a tattoo.

Eat a healthy meal before your tattoo session to ensure that your blood sugar is stable.

Wear loose, comfortable clothing that allows easy access to the area being tattooed.

After getting a tattoo:

Follow the aftercare instructions provided by your tattoo artist. These may include:

Keeping the tattoo clean and covered with a bandage for the first few hours after getting tattooed.

Washing the tattoo with lukewarm water and a mild soap (such as unscented, antimicrobial soap) and patting it dry with a clean towel.

Applying a thin layer of tattoo ointment or lotion (such as A&D or Aquaphor) to the tattoo and covering it with a clean bandage or wrap.

Repeating this process for the first few days, or until the tattoo has fully scabbed over.

Avoid soaking the tattoo in water for the first week, such as in a bath or pool.

Avoid picking or scratching at the scabs, as this can cause the tattoo to fade or become infected.

Avoid exposure to direct sunlight or tanning beds for at least 2-4 weeks.

If you experience any redness, swelling, or unusual discharge, contact your tattoo artist or a healthcare professional.

Overall, it's important to keep your tattoo clean and moisturized during the healing process to ensure that it heals properly and looks its best. Using a numbing cream can help reduce pain during the tattooing process, but it's important to use it as directed and to follow all aftercare instructions to ensure that your tattoo heals properly.

What Is The Phantom Troupe?

The Phantom Troupe is a group of highly skilled and incredibly dangerous criminals. They are known for their brutality and have been responsible for some of the most heinous crimes in the world. The members of the Troupe all have a spider tattoo on their bodies, which is how they got their names. The tattoo represents their status as killers and their willingness to kill anyone who gets in their way.

In the "Hunter x Hunter" series, the Phantom Troupe is made up of survivors from the destroyed metropolis of Meteor City, a junkyard city once ruled by outcasts. The city's existence is unconfirmed, and most people are unaware it exists. The Troupe was formed by Chrollo Lucilfer at some point with six other Meteor City residents, and currently consists of ten members. To join the group, one must kill a current member or be nominated by an existing member. The Troupe is known for their involvement in the massacre of the Kurta Clan, the theft of their Scarlet Eyes, and their role in the defense of Meteor City against the Chimera Ants.

Phantom Troupe

Basic Overview Of The Phantom Troupe

The group numbered thirteen during its Yorknew City mission and currently consists of ten members; it has a tattoo of a twelve-legged spider on its body. To join the group, one must kill a current member; other vacancies are filled by the group's leader or through member nominations.

The Troupe spends most of their time stealing and killing, with only the rare philanthropic act in between. After going through their new belongings, the leader sells them all off.

They are well-known for the massacre of the Kurta Clan and the thievery of their Scarlet Eyes. They are also a significant asset in Meteor City's defense, as shown when they defeated Zazen and her Chimera Ants. However, they are outliers even by the city's standards for their role in disrupting the ideal relationship with the Mafia.

Despite having close ties, the group will allow outsiders in if they have killed one of their own members. For example, Chrollo organized a massacre against the Mafia as revenge for when one of their teammates died. Similarly, after witnessing this event, Machi speculated that he might also ask the killer to join their side.

10 Best Kurapika Quotes In Hunter X Hunter

Kurapika is stoic and determined. His friendship with Gon, Killua, and Leorio and thirst for vengeance led to some of the best quotes in HxH.

The shonen genre is full of memorable anime series, but few are as unique or well-received as the beloved classic, Hunter x Hunter . Released in 2011 as a reboot of the original 1999 series, Hunter x Hunter follows the story of Gon Freecss, a young boy hoping to pass the Hunter Exam and reunite with his long-lost father.

Along the way, Gon befriends a variety of different individuals, including a level-headed stranger known as Kurapika. Kurapika quickly becomes one of Gon's most trusted allies, and throughout the course of their journey, he utters some of the most memorable quotes in Hunter x Hunter .

10 "I Do Not Fear Death."

Episode 1 — "departure x and x friends".

"I do not fear death. I fear only that my rage will fade over time."

Hunter x Hunter wastes no time in its first episode, immediately introducing three of the series' main characters — Gon Freecss, Leorio Paladinight, and Kurapika Kurta — as they sail to the site of the Hunter Exam. The latter of this trio, Kurapika, is quite a stoic figure, but despite his reserved nature, he quickly forges a bond with Gon and Leorio.

While the group is still sailing to the Hunter Exam, they encounter a stretch of extremely rough waters, which doesn't seem to faze Kurapika whatsoever. In fact, he goes as far as to state that he doesn't even fear death itself, foreshadowing the events of his tragic backstory.

9 "A Blow To My Pride Is Nothing."

Episode 4 — "hope x and x ambition".

"A blow to my pride is nothing. Not when compared to my clan's suffering."

The First Phase of the Hunter Exam tasks the examinees with following Satotz, an extremely agile Ruins Hunter, to the site of the Second Phase. The participants travel tens of kilometers during this phase, giving characters like Kurapika and Leorio plenty of time to get to know each other.

Eventually, Leorio discovers that Kurapika hails from the Kurta Clan — a group that was brutally murdered for their rare and valuable eyes. Kurapika dismisses the difficulty of the First Phase and compares it to the suffering of his clan, firmly establishing where his motivations for becoming a Hunter stem from.

Episode 9 — "beware x of x prisoners".

"In my mind, I knew right from the start that the tattoo was a fake. As soon as I saw that spider, my vision went almost completely red."

As Hunter x Hunter 's protagonists progress through the Hunter Exam, they encounter more and more dangerous opponents. By the Third Phase, Kurapika and his allies are pit against the heinous prisoners of Trick Tower, all of whom stand to knock years off their prison sentence by delaying prospective Hunters. One of these prisoners, Majitani, even claims to be part of the infamous group of criminals known as the Phantom Troupe.

Unbeknownst to Majitani, who isn't actually part of the Phantom Troupe, Kurapika holds a massive grudge against the group for their role in the slaughter of his clan. After making short work of Majitani, Kurapika tells Leorio that he lost his cool the instant he saw Majitani's fake Phantom Troupe tattoo. The feud between the Troupe and Kurapika is a major part of Hunter x Hunter 's narrative, and this quote introduces their animosity in beautiful fashion.

7 "If You Insist On Taking Them By Force, Prepare To Fight Me For Them!"

Episode 16 — "defeat x and x disgrace".

"I will not allow you to take my [badge] — the same goes for the other two. If you insist on taking them by force, prepare to fight me for them!"

Kurapika isn't afraid of taking on stronger opponents, but even by his standards, Hisoka is far too dangerous to justify fighting in the Hunter Exam. For the most part, Hunter x Hunter 's characters give the clown a wide berth; however, during the Fourth Phase of the Hunter Exam, they are finally forced into direct conflict.

When Hisoka encounters Kurapika and Leorio, Kurapika is very wary of his opponents. Despite his apprehension, he stands his ground and prepares for battle, pledging to protect himself and Leorio against what seem like insurmountable odds. Although Kurapika is rarely one to take unnecessary risks, this quote is clear evidence that he'll fight anything that stands in between him and his goals.

6 "There Are Two Things That Collectors Always Want."

Episode 39 — "wish x and x promise".

"There are two things that collectors always want. The first is any item of extreme rarity. The second is colleagues to whom they can brag about their collection."

Kurapika and his allies are all nuanced individuals, but if there's one thing that's consistent about his character, it's his unyielding resentment of the greed that killed his clan. The Kurta Clan were murdered for their eyes, which are highly valuable on the black market.

During his hunt for the Phantom Troupe, Kurapika encounters an individual indirectly connected to the Troupe. This contact collects human trophies similar to the eyes of the Kurta Clan, prompting Kurapika to comment on the shallow nature of those who engage in such hobbies.

5 "For Your Sins, You'll Pay With Your Life!"

Episode 47 — "condition x and x condition".

"You're scum. For your sins, you'll pay with your life."

The Phantom Troupe and its members all possess incredible abilities, yet even by their standards, Uvogin is extremely strong. His physical strength is the greatest of the entire group, and with his Enhancement-type Nen abilities, he's the definition of raw, unbridled power.

However, whereas Uvogin's strength stems from his love of combat, Kurapika's stems from a lifelong quest for revenge. These perspectives are brought into direct conflict in Hunter x Hunter 's Yorknew City Arc when the pair square off, at which point Kurapika reminds his opponent the consequences of his ruthless aggression.

4 "You Will Never Break These Chains!"

"Filthy bastard! Is that seriously all you can think about? You will never break these chains!"

Uvogin proves to be a capable opponent, but he's ultimately no match for Kurapika's versatile chains and Nen technique. The blonde-haired Hunter captures the member of the Phantom Troupe before interrogating him, which unfortunately yields little information.

As Uvogin continues to try and break free from his bindings, Kurapika becomes enraged with the criminal's lust for violence, fueling his rage and helping him grow even stronger. Before killing his opponent, Kurapika chastises Uvogin for his actions, just like he said he would at the beginning of their encounter.

3 "I've Been Blessed With Good Friends."

Episode 55 — "allies x and x lies".

"If one of you ends up revealing my secret — which I doubt — I still won't regret a thing. I've been blessed with good friends."

Kurapika's relationship with Leorio, Killua, and Gon is always amicable, but it still serves as more of a means to an end than a true, unqualified friendship. However, as Hunter x Hunter 's narrative progresses, he grows closer to his companions and even comes to value them as vital parts of his life.

In a sign of wholehearted trust, Kurapika tells his allies about his powers, his binding contract, and his quest to kill the members of the Phantom Troupe. If this information fell into the wrong hands, it could ruin Kurapika's quest for revenge, so the fact that he's willing to share it with Leorio, Killua, and Gon is a true sign of friendship.

2 "You Shouldn't Let Appearances Deceive You."

Episode 57 — "initiative x and x law".

"You shouldn't let appearances deceive you."

While all the Phantom Troupe's members are impressive, none of their efforts would be possible were it not for their enigmatic leader, Chrollo. As a criminal, his ability to steal Nen techniques is invaluable, and after countless successful operations, he grows confident in his abilities.

Chrollo maintains his level-headedness following his capture at the hands of Kurapika, which rightfully infuriates his captor. After the Phantom Troupe's leader comments that he didn't expect Kurapika to be posing as a woman, the Hunter angrily reminds his adversary of how important it is to avoid making assumptions based on appearance.

1 "I Will Not Lose My Friends!"

Episode 58 — "signal x to x retreat".

"I must get those two back — that is my top priority. I've lost too many people already. I will not lose my friends!"

Kurapika's capture of Chrollo is incredibly impressive, yet it comes at a severe cost — Gon and Killua's capture. This predicament puts Kurapika in between a rock and a hard place, forcing him to choose between two options: exacting his revenge on Chrollo, thereby allowing the Troupe to kill Gon and Killua, or releasing his prisoner, guaranteeing the safety of his two friends.

Given Kurapika's motivations, it would make sense for him to cut the head off the snake by killing Chrollo. However, he refuses to compromise his morals, and in one of the most selfless acts in the entire series, he forgoes his revenge in order to save his two friends. This moment is a perfect representation of what makes Kurapika such an engaging character while simultaneously demonstrating what makes him different from the criminals that he's hunting.
