Knov has a pretty sweet ability and when he was introduced he was slick and cool.
Then he felt
Pitou'sPOUF's aura and had a nervous breakdown more or less. So tragic.
My question to y'all is...what if he didn't. What if things went according to plan
and Knov WAS able to fight alongside his comrades. Given Knov's ability
I would think it would make for a very different fight. But would it give
the Hunters the advantage?
To decide this will be the fight...
First off Netero and Meruem are not involved as they are fighting else where.
Komugi is not involved so no hostages and Gon does not have Vengeance Powers.
Palm is in her Chimera Ant form but she is on the Extermination's Team.

I don't see how the Meleoron + Novu combination could fail, especially against Pitou and Yupi (who would both probably die instantly with Scream aimed at their heads). Pufu on the other hand would require that one critical part of his body to be erased so may not fall to a head shot.
I wonder if any of them would have reflexes fast enough to dodge the dimensional rift closing on them, upon feeling the ability touching their bodies (this feat probably require Killua level reflexes, which none of the RGs have).
I think the fight would probably have started in a similar fashion but ended with the team relying on Novu to bypass the royal guards' durability.
I strongly belive that Knov's scream attack doesn't work if the foe have more aura than the user.
Because this is a "spacial manipulation" logicaly it require and insane ammount of manipulation/energy to put the target / body part into the singularity point of the dimensional rift. If the target have (way) more aura , he could probaly defend against that.

The condition that Cheethu put into his power was also ridiculous (can't use it anymore if he din't win) , imho this is why the room was indestrutible.
But yet we don't know that much how Knov power truly work (only that this is dimension shift based)
Right, I believe Knuv Scream attack would work on anybody he used it agains't.. However he has to extend the dimensional rift then catch his opponent in it. I doubt any Nen user is gonna let that weird attack touch them, and He has to pretty much physically touch you with that attack, so it's not OP and you can easily counter attack him.
Dude what that basically means is that he has a one hit kill ability with basically no conditions attached. There's no way that's true. Even if it put him into zetsu it would still be overpowered.
In your cenario, the changes in the whole fight would be + Pitou in the Royal Guards and + Gon (non-adult), Killua (more participant againt Pitou´s fight, less on Youpi´s one) and Knov on the Extermination team.
Counting that Pouf´s actual fighting was only holding Morel off (not much really) and that he would have time to help whoever he prefered. Counting that Youpi alone could almost win against averyone, and that Pitou is, as Youpi, fighting oriented, the power level on the Royal Guards side would almost double! Knov alone can´t increase the Extermination´s teamfighting ability that much, even with that OP power.
Also, if Killua is to spend his time on Pitou´s fight, he wouldn´t be able so save Knuckle in Youpi´s fight.
Pitou being stopped to heal Komugi was the biggest luck the team had in the whole arc. Knov wasn´t afraid of her for no reason.
Knov felt Pouf's aura.
Didn't Knov get exposed to Pouf's aura without using any nen? Thats like going outside naked in a blizzard. No wonder he had a mental breakdown. Not to mention he was completely by himself with no one to help him if something went wrong so he literally pissed his pants when he thought of what would happen if he got caught.
Not to excuse him but I don't think he is cowardly or anything. The circumstances were just really bad. Not everyone can be as (stupidly) brave as Gon. Well characters like Palm, Shoot, Knuckle also demonstrated more bravery. Maybe he is just a bit cowardly or maybe Palm and Knuckle are just very brave. Shoot was a coward but Gon helped him break out of his shell.
It makes me sad that the royal guard were so damn OP lol... they should've been scaled down just a bit. This is totally unrelated, but do you guys think the entire phantom troupe (current members) would be able to take out the 3 RG? That would actually be a pretty interested fight! Meruem excluded because hes just way too OP lol.
If Feitan makes a mistake like he did against that ant queen he would be dead against the RG. He would not even get to use Pain Packer.
