Wish there was a thread where fights between HH characters could be discussed... I always wondered how bisk would fare against members of the ryodan-she seems to be on the level IMHO-.
No. That's why Netero was surprised; Meruem was impervious enough to render his supersonic attacks harmless.Quote:
I would like to redirect your attention to this thread.
Hunter X Hunter and The Breaker needs their own forums!
I hope this answers your questions.

Killua explicitly stated that Palm doesn't need to use nen for her defense, since her hair served as an armor, and she is a natural reinforcement type. Sure enough, we can see Palm focusing her nen on her fists.
What about Meruem? Remember that Togashi draws glowing auras whenever someone uses nen. So when Meruem fought Netero he didn't use nen.
He doesn't always draw the auras, I am reasonably sure they are implied in several scenarios. In any case, I doubt he could take hundreds of thousands of hits from netero without using nen to defend himself.
Alright, give examples.Quote:
I can't prove that the King did not use Nen in all his punches and tail strikes, indeed the glowing aura was never illustrated in ALL of his attacks and guards, which lead me to believe that he wasn't using Nen to guard or attack, below is pretty evident that there is absolutely no indication that Nen was being used to attack and guard:
But what bothers me is Yupi and how his attacks never had glowing auras as well, yet it was kind of implied that his attacks consumes Nen power, check below image:
If Knuckle received that punch, his loan/interest of Hakoware would be paid in full with enough extra damage to be killed. Of course, we can interpret that punch as pure force with no added Nen power, but then that would render Hakoware pointless - what is the point of Hakoware, which can render enemy in Zetsu mode when the enemy brute force are THAT strong? So, I think Yupi used Nen in his punches, and therefore maybe the King also used Nen in his attacks and guards.
But at any rate, suppose the King DID use Nen in his guards, I don't think he used Gyou or Kou (concentrated Nen) to guard where he was going to be attacked, it would not make sense, because during the fight it was stated (check below) that Netero's attack was so fast that King could not see where the attack was coming from (and going to) , therefore IF the King used Nen to guard at all, at best he would have only used Ken (basic Nen surrounding the body)...

Yupi is using nen, because the "rage" he stores, and the transformation he does, are nen-based.Quote:
