But, I disagree with the prediction that there will be another team or combination of strategies to take down King and finish this arc, not that it's impossible, but because if it does end this way, it just wouldn't feel complete, much like if the King died from the nuke (or if he died from the nuke BECAUSE of other nen abilities like Hakoware) it'd be logical, but it wouldn't feel right.

    I still think the key to finish this arc lies between the King himself and Komugi, there will be some actions probably in the next few chapters, but to end this I think Komugi plays the ultimate role.
    This Team-Stuff was just an Example, not a prediction.
    I also wouldnt believe that there will show up other Teams - in this arc right now!

    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-.

Another point is , even if the king's nen is sealed so WHAT , its not like we've seen him use a nen ability or something , with his strength & his rough body for defense i guess that non of the hunters of the team using nen would be able to par with him . He's a bit overpowered & that's what i hate about him so the solution to all this mess will be something unpredictable .
    All punches and kicks and tail strikes the king performs use nen. If he had not used nen to defend against Netero's attack he would already be dead. He must have concentrated his nen in the regions where netero was hitting him.
    Reading list in order from best to least good:
    HxH, OP, Gantz, Naruto, Bleach, Reborn, Berserk, D.Gray-Man, Psyren, Kamen Teacher, Zetman and Fairy Tail

    No. That's why Netero was surprised; Meruem was impervious enough to render his supersonic attacks harmless.

    The King will die so or so, ants wont get older then 2 oder 3 years except for the queen which lives normally 25 years.

    I seriously doubt that is the case. Just because nowadays we do not see nen being used to defend yourself does not mean it is not actually being used. At this point it is so basic it is implied. The king is the closest thing to a natural nen user as it gets, it would be weird if he did not instinctively use nen to defend himself. The king is strong but I doubt he would be nearly as resistant without his nen.

    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.

    It was never said palm did not need her nen when she used her hair. She actually is a reinforcement type, so I would think her hair works that way due to it being reinforced. Otherwise, it would be just hair....

    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.

    I don't think the King will ever go bankrupt from Hakoware but for the sake of argument... I am curious to know what you guys think: Will King be beaten by Netero's thousands of punches if he was in Zetsu mode?

    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:

    http://www.onemanga.com/Hunter_X_Hunter/291/19/

    http://www.onemanga.com/Hunter_X_Hunter/292/06/

    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:

    http://www.onemanga.com/Hunter_X_Hunter/280/12/

    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.
