The opposite of an overrated character, an underrated character is someone who doesn't receive enough love. This could be someone the author doesn't promote enough or someone that is amazing yet deserves more attention from the fans. Who do you believe is the most underrated character in the Hunter x Hunter world?
Leorio is only underrated by Togashi. Everyone else seems to love the guy.
Anyway, I nominate Genthru,
People don't seem to rank Genthru very high as a character, despite his intimidating presense being what made the Greed Island arc such a nail-biter. Sure, he didn't have much of a back story or reason to like him just as much as the heroes, unlike the Phantom Troupe and Meruem, but there's nothing wrong with having a traditional bad guy every now and then. He was a badass psycho and he had fun doing what he did best: blowing people up. :lol
I also nominate Kalluto Zoldyck. People don't seem to talk about him much, even though I think his character offers a lot of possibly for future plot twists.
Yes, I think he is pretty underrated in terms of combat and people don't give him enough credit, even though he killed a Phantom Troupe member and survived a fight against Chrollo.
He is actually a really cool character, but unfortunately it's very hard to shine when you are surrounded by other badass characters such as Kurapika, Gon and Killua. At least he could stand out in the last arc. (hope that's not too much of a spoiler)
For someone who is considered to be near Hisoka's level, he sure appeared very rare. He would do a great supporting character I think.
