In no particular order I would say...
Hisoka (wasn't it mentioned that he was?)!
Biscuit. lol. She's maybe strong. She is a master after all.
As for Biscuit, the manga hints that she's pretty damn strong but due to shounen plot device, she fought Gensuru's sidekicks instead of Gensuru himself. We probably woulda gotten a much better idea of her strength if a fight between her and Gensuru played out.
Hisoka thinks he is the strongest man in the world. I t was stated in the manga after his fight against Kastro. The fact that he rated Illumi 95 means they are in the same ballpark.
Ging is definitely one the top 5, as it was mentioned in the Manga.
However it's too early to say the likes of Chrollo, Hisoka, Illumi being Top 5 - Hunter x Hunter world is massive,
If you look at the Greed Island Arc, Ging's frd Razor was able to break Hisoka's finger with a dodgeball even when Hisoka was being serious at the game.
Razor also stood firm against 5-6 members of spiders when they tried to intrude greed island, and one member of the spider actually told one of them to hold back because they knew Razor is strong. I would say Razor is stronger than Hisoka.
In the next Arc, I can see Gon and Killua surpassing Hisoka (if you look at some of the power level comparison of ants soldier vs spider fight)
By top five, do you mean best Nen users or strongest people ? Biscuit statement doesn't necessarily mean he's one of the strongest five people in the world. Also, are Ants included in this thread ?
Why is this thread called the top 5 strongest Nen-Users. Unlike the Term which was actually used in the Story:
The top 5 Talented Nen-Users.
You know, because nen isnt all about strength... Moraou and Bisquit stated that really well in Chiomera Ant arc.
What is a Anime-Chapter? You mean Episode? Or Manga Chapter?
And how did Togashi have an appearance in the Anime?
that.. uh.. kinda doesnt make sense for me
btw did you realize that in the spider season at one scene hisoka was ready to defeat all the members of the spider by himself only to fight chrollo? that only means the spiders aren't that strong.
Hisoka is full of himself. Granted, he is very talented at fighting, and his Nen ability is quite useful. But I would not put him in top five territory.
My personal list, in no particular order:
-Ging - Many people have mentioned him as one of the best in the world.
-Netero - Not much to say on this one. Netero is a beast.
-Maha Zoldyck - Not entirely sure about him. We only know about his supposed power through hearsay, but he was apparently on Netero's level at one point.
-Neferpitou - Her puppeteer Nen abilities are quite formidable.
-Chrollo - His stealing ability requires a lot of talent to pull of, what with the number of hardships he must overcome. The fact that he is able to utilize so many diverse abilities in combat is also quite impressive.
I didn't include Meruem in my list, despite the fact he would likely wipe the floor with any of these characters in a fight, because his great power isn't really dependent on his actual talent at using Nen, but rather his latent physical strength.
Just a naive question, but if the ranking is about Nen power, shouldnt Alluka be the strongest one?
I'm only going to go by Nen users we've seen, and not include royal guards/Meruem or dead people.
In no particular order:
Chrollo: His nen ability is potent, and puts even strong nen users on guard. Granted, he's probably not going to be able to steal someone's hatsu in a fight, but I'm sure he has a large store of powerful abilities in his book.
Zeno: Probably one of the strongest characters still alive. We've seen only a small portion of his power, but he was confident enough that he would have beaten Chrollo, even if Chrollo was holding back. Since he's an assassin, he's skilled at estimating people's abilities and careful not to get over his head.
The next one is a combi: Knuckle + Meloreon. Knuckle's ability is wicked, granting him the ability to incapacitate Nen users quickly, unless they're monstrous guys like the Chimera ants. He's pretty high just on his own, but working with Meloreon's ability, there are almost no humans that could possibly win.
Biske: Her nen ability might not be much use in a fight, but it's pretty impressive nevertheless. She's able to alter her appearance with ease and maintain a youthful appearance. She only got hit by Razor's dodgeball because of her excessively large clothing. She easily won her fight against Genthru's underling, and probably would have taken out Genthru himself equally easily.
I'd also put bisk on this list.
Her abilities are the most useful ones we saw in HxH so far.
She can basically go without sleep and help others to do so, heal to a certain extend, and she is incredibly strong and can alter her appearance with nen.
We do not know how strong she is exactly, but as a master of netero's shingen kung fu and a helluvalot nen power she must be strong
and she is a two star hunter too, afaik, so girl's no joke at accomplishments, either.
I also think some of the zodiac will belong on this list once we saw their abilities.
Hisoka's abilities are rather simple.
The way he uses them do the magic trick, but i would not see him as top nen user, even if his texture is impressive
