visualize Gallery Ikalgo ( イカルゴ, Ikarugo ) is an octopus-like Chimera Ant and a erstwhile captain of Leol ‘s Squad. [ 2 ] After befriending Killua Zoldyck, he joins the Extermination Team in their mission to defeat the Chimera Ant King. [ 3 ]


Ikalgo ‘s body is red and identical alike to that of an octopus, except for his face. He has a round mouth and thick lips, round eyes, and thick eyebrows. He has eight tentacles with suction cups .


Ikalgo is an acute perceiver, much strategizing before fighting an foe. He has a strong sense of honor, preferring to die rather than betray a comrade, as observed when given these options by Killua. [ 2 ] however, Killua ‘s declaration that they could have been friends caused him to switch sides, [ 4 ] and Ikalgo developed a strong attachment to the Extermination Team members and Killua, specially. [ 3 ] This is due to Killua making Ikalgo feel validated, as he has an inferiority complex because he dislikes his appearance. In fact, Ikalgo wishes he had been born as a “ cool ” squid preferably than an “ despicable ” octopus. [ 2 ] He finds it touching that person would call an octopus-like him a “ cool guy ” and so it is impossible for him to betray that kindness. [ 4 ] While facing off against Killua inside his host, he had a carefree, slenderly taunting demeanor, and a tendency to hum. [ 5 ] Despite being a sniper, Ikalgo was incapable of killing person, not evening enemies that could put his friends in danger, which caused his emotional breakdown. [ 6 ] On the other hand, he found it comfortable to pull the trigger when his liveliness was the lone one at stake. [ 7 ]


In his erstwhile life as a homo, Ikalgo served as an NGL soldier aboard Zaiqahal and Gyro and fought against the Chimera Ants. [ 8 ] From his octopus component, he inherited memories of self-loathing for his appearance and a profound admiration for the smasher of squids. [ 2 ]


Chimera Ant arc

When Killua gives chase to a Captain of Leol ‘s squad, Ikalgo, while inhabiting a cadaver, shoots him from a very long distance with his Fleadom ability, relying on the coordinates provided by Flutter. [ 9 ] He gets four shots in before Killua manages to dodge. After that, he stands inactive in the forest. Flutter has Ikalgo shoot him again to make him reveal his ability. Killua, however, expands his aura ampere much as potential and lets himself be hit, which allows him to determine the management the sniper is shooting from. Flutter warns Ikalgo, who, thinking everything is going according to the plan, waits for Killua and lures him to the entrance of a cave. He declares it is a trap before jumping him. An instant later, Killua pierces the host ‘s mind, causing Ikalgo to acknowledge his courage. He envelops Killua in his tentacles as the two plunges towards the Underground Lake filled with edacious Chimera Ants. [ 5 ] however, Killua frees himself by cutting off his tentacles. Both use the suction cups to adhere to stalactites thus as not to fall into the water, while the cadaver Ikalgo was inhabiting is devoured by his underlings. [ 2 ] An indignant Ikalgo yells at Killua for mutilating him. He protests vehemently when the son calls him an octopus. He tries to escape by inflating his head and releasing the inhale air through his plunder while thinking that since he can not raise more fleas without a server, he will let the Ortho Siblings kill the boy. much to his shock, he is intercepted by Killua, who halts his get off by grabbing his gun-shaped sleeve and dangles him over the water. Nervous, Ikalgo makes little talk while acting complacently. Killua deduces the Chimera Ants in the water will attack anyone in their feed craze. In the interim, Flutter besides contacts him telepathically, causing Ikalgo to say the response that was meant for him out forte. Killua offers to spare his life if he tells him Flutter ‘s ability. On the verge of tears, Ikalgo finds newfangled resolve and begins to narrate his envy for squids. Before the ten seconds given to him by Killua are even up, he cuts off his accelerator arm and, unwilling to sell out his comrades, lets himself fall towards the urine, wishing to be reborn as a squid. Killua, stricken by Ikalgo ‘s loyalty, saves him with one of his yo-yo. When Ikalgo asks him why Killua says that he is cool and in different circumstances, they could have been friends. Ikalgo is profoundly moved by these words. Killua flings him towards the shore. Ikalgo gives a begin when he sees a shark-like Chimera Ant attack the son. He looks on from the prop up, concerned. When Flutter contacts him again, Ikalgo tells him the battle is not over and lies about the enemy not using any weapons. [ 2 ] Ikalgo approaches Killua after the boy is badly wounded during the conflict against the Ortho Siblings. Disregarding their requests for serve, Ikalgo resolves to save him. Asked about his actions, he declares he is turning on his comrades and taking Killua to an unaccredited repair without knowing the argue. He thinks to himself that he could not let him die after he said they could have been friends. As he jumps into an underground river, he begs him not to die. [ 4 ] Ikalgo takes Killua to a back bowling alley hospital and sits by his bedside as he sleeps for two days. He insists Killua lie fifty he opens his injuries, but is shocked to see they have already healed. He is initially stumped when Killua invites him to join the Extermination Team and wonders if it is very fine. The son retorts it is entirely up to Ikalgo himself. When the octopus accepts, Killua adds that neither of them will have to thank the other if they save their life again, as that is what friends do. Moved, Ikalgo bursts into tears. Killua warns him that the global he is about to step in is highly dangerous and points out that risking and throwing away one ‘s life are two wholly different things. Ikalgo however is ecstatic and gladly follows him. [ 3 ] The two converge up with Gon, Knuckle, Shoot, and Meleoron. They hold a strategy meet in which it is revealed that Ikalgo will be in the avant-garde during the assault on the Royal Palace of East Gorteau, together with Gon and Killua. The six of them part ways, with Knuckle and Shoot heading off to confuse Neferpitou. [ 10 ] 19 hours before the attack, Ikalgo, Killua, and Gon are in a trail. They do a final run-through, with Ikalgo being assigned to rescuing Palm in Bizeff ‘s quarters. Gon and Ikalgo pick up on Killua ‘s recurring concern that the Royal Guards will not be in the throne room. Killua suggests think of every possible scenario before they storm the palace. He brings up the hypothesis of Neferpitou being in the palace but not using En, which perplexes Ikalgo until Gon reminds him that it had already happened the day Knov sneak in. They contact Colt to ask for his opinion and learn that Neferpitou was credibly healing person. Ikalgo rejects the impression of an enemy injuring a Royal Guard or the King and of Neferpitou exposing the latter to danger by rescinding their en to treat person else, which leads the three to conclude that the King harmed himself. [ 11 ] Six hours before the foray into, Ikalgo, Gon, and Killua join the rest of the Extermination Team inside Knov ‘s scoop proportion. The octopus chats with Meleoron for a while. At 11:30, he thinks excitedly about his new life sentence. He mutely thanks Killua and resolves to complete his mission. The group then moves out. [ 12 ] They enter the room connected to the passing near the cardinal stairway of the palace, where Killua and Ikalgo fight over what Killua considers unpredictable scenarios, whereas Ikalgo is confident the Royal Guards will be by the King ‘s side. Ikalgo finally concedes he has a indicate. A little over ten seconds before midnight, the Extermination Team gathers in front of the exit. [ 13 ] To infiltrate the palace, he enters and manipulates Flutter ‘s cadaver with his Living Dead Dolls ability. With the exception of Morel, he is the last to storm the palace. [ 14 ] deoxyadenosine monophosphate soon as they emerge following to the stairway, Ikalgo turns approximately [ 15 ] and heads towards the northwestern elevator leading to the basement to look for Palm. [ 11 ] Thanks to Flutter ‘s colonial eyes, he manages to survive Dragon Dive. When Menthuthuyoupi brings down the central stairway, Gon and Killua run in the same direction as Ikalgo, overtaking him in the inner court. He spots Killua doubling back at one point, when he kills two Chimera Ant soldiers that Ikalgo was about to run into. [ 16 ] When the male child passes him, Ikalgo states that Killua is in debt with him. [ 17 ] Unbeknownst to both of them, Welfin saw the two soldiers being murdered and Ikalgo authorize by their corpses mere moments afterwards, [ 16 ] which causes him to believe Flutter to be a traitor. [ 18 ] He reaches the elevator barely as the two doors at its sides open. [ 17 ] Cheetu and Bloster come out simultaneously. Disguised as Flutter, Ikalgo claims he lone just returned to the palace. When asked by Bloster, he responds his wings were wounded by Dragon Dive. Cheetu notices “ Flutter ” was about to take the elevator, which prompts Ikalgo to respond he had been ordered by Hagya to go to the basement. He manages to enter the rustle, but Bloster and Welfin do not miss him calling Leol by his old name. [ 18 ] american samoa soon as the doors open, he activates Satellitonbo to use Super Eye, unhesitating to find Palm. [ 19 ] Ikalgo starts a truck and, following Marcos ‘ directions, drives towards Bizeff ‘s quarters. He rejoices when one of his “ Satellite Dragonflies ” discovers the door was left open. Another dragonfly stationed next to the elevator allows him to see that Bloster has come to the basement and is standing inactive in movement of the elevator, making a confrontation ineluctable. As he drives into Bizeff ‘s quarters, he deduces he must have made some kind of err that caused the erstwhile Squadron Leader to be leery of him, but not glaring enough that he killed him on the spotlight upstairs. Out of caution, he resolves to assume he should be ready for a competitiveness. He calls out Palm ‘s alias, but none of the women come out, interpreting his presence as a examination of Bizeff ‘s. After entering the wrong firm, he finds a Nen message left by Palm that Ikalgo reads using Gyo, asking them to act under the premise that she has died. Saddened, Ikalgo drives back to proceed with his next undertaking : monitor the situation with Super Eye and use telepathy to update Meleoron while confusing the other Chimera Ants in the palace. Since that design requires them to trust him, he decides to take out Bloster. He stops the truck in front of the early Squadron Leader. When question, he responds he finished his job for Hagya. Bloster points out Flutter ‘s superior can no longer stand his former name. Ikalgo manages to escape Flutter ‘s body instants before Bloster blows it up, hiding under the trunk. He realizes that whoever does not know Hagya ‘s raw name will be considered an enemy. much to his relief, Bloster is unable to operate the elevator, [ 20 ] which should result in the release of sleeping gasoline. [ 21 ] Ikalgo considers leaving him lock inside the elevator a well as moving him elsewhere while he is unconscious mind, but he soon realizes the best course of military action would be to kill him and manipulate his cadaver. He rushes to the surveillance monitor room. As he enters it, Bloster shoots his way out of the elevator, sleeping gasoline leaking out. Ikalgo lowers a bulkhead and attempts to lure him down a corridor, but before he can trap him by bringing down another, Bloster propels himself to safety with his ability. He deduces he is being observed, although he can not reach Ikalgo through bulkheads. The octopus initially assumes Bloster will get knocked out by the sleep accelerator ascribable to being in a varnish environment ; however, he realizes there is a room out and quickly comes up with a plan. equitable as Bloster figures out there is an escape, Ikalgo raises one of the bulkheads and jumps into a tank. [ 21 ] He drives it through Bloster ‘s bullets and crashes it in battlefront of the elevator, effectively preventing him from climbing up the cable before setting the commands on ardor. He slips into the gap between the tank and the top of the elevator without Bloster seeing him. When he hears the former Squadron Leader drop to the ground, he turns his tentacle into an atmosphere grease-gun but finds himself unable to pull the trigger. He agonizes over the decision until he runs out of hint. He crawls under the bulkhead he alone barely raised and returns to the admonisher room. He lowers it before bursting into tears, calling himself a coward. [ 6 ] He keeps weeping for several minutes. When he lifts his headway and looks at the monitor, he sees the gates to the garage and the warehouses are open. right then, Welfin appears behind him, Missileman already active. He orders the octopus not to move. Determined to protect his friends, Ikalgo turns around and shoots him, [ 22 ] hitting him in the branch. Welfin retorts by firing his missiles, which, a lot to Ikalgo ‘s surprise, explode without injuring him. He soon discovers the attack implanted bouncy centipedes in his head. Ignoring Welfin ‘s warnings, he shoots him in each stage to incapacitate him despite the excruciating pain inflicted by the centipedes, which increases the more he resists. When Welfin surrenders, the pain decreases. Ikalgo demands that he remove the centipedes. unable to do that, Welfin pretends to pass out to buy time. however, Ikalgo is not fooled and prepares to open open fire again. Welfin admits he does not know how to dispel his ability, causing the centipedes to writhe in pain and Ikalgo to understand the campaign is Welfin ‘s earnestness. Welfin ‘s personality reminds him of person he knew as a human. He enquires whether the early Squadron Leader remembers who he used to be. He sees through his attack to lie. When Welfin talks about Gyro, the centipedes fly. Ikalgo asks him if he has seen a woman in the palace, to which Welfin replies some human was put into a cocoon. Welfin then starts to laugh, puzzling Ikalgo. The erstwhile Squadron Leader states that telling the accuracy is easy. [ 7 ] Ikalgo locks him and Bloster in the back of a truck [ 8 ] before heading towards the inner court. He is shocked by the devastation he sees there. He is spotted by Killua and a woman he deduces to be Palm. He plans to drive her to Peijin as planned, but she insists on staying until she can talk to Gon. Ikalgo frankincense learns that Gon is waiting for Neferpitou to heal Komugi so they can go to restore Kite subsequently. Ikalgo is cut off by Killua when he is about to object and understand that staying means dying with Gon if Neferpitou turns on them. The three go looking for Meleoron and Knuckle, who are besides determined to remain in the palace. Gon leaves Komugi in their hands before leaving for Peijin with Neferpitou. Ikalgo shivers when Killua explains that if he went with Gon, he might be taken hostage, eliminating their advantage. [ 23 ] Through Palm, the five remaining extinction team members learn the King survived his competitiveness against Isaac Netero. [ 24 ] Ikalgo scours the palace for corpses he can control of with his ability. however, the two soldier Ants killed by Killua are besides mangled for him to do so. [ 25 ] soon subsequently, he is horrified by the King ‘s incommensurably potent Ren. Upon being enveloped in his En, [ 26 ] he runs to the entrance to the underground airdock, where, as expected, he finds Palm, who is wondering whether she should go in and hazard trapping herself. Ikalgo urges her to hurry inside before the King uses En again. Palm updates him on Killua ‘s actions and Meleoron and Knuckle ‘s predicament while Ikalgo drives them to Bizeff ‘s quarters. He guesses their two friends were taken alive to set up a hostage exchange and plans to set a trap. [ 8 ] While Palm rounds up and blindfolds the women, Ikalgo asks Welfin at point to act as a messenger and tell their enemies they want to negotiate and that Komugi is hidden in the warehouse. He accepts Welfin ‘s condition that he will let them know it is a trap. He stops palm when she is about to include Welfin among the targets of her Wink Blue. He claims Welfin will be absolve after that mission and tells him to go discover Gyro. The former Squadron Leader reacts with ferocity until Ikalgo calls him by his human list. He remembers the two of them were friends and crusade against the Chimera Ants in NGL under Gyro, [ 8 ] whom he believes to be inactive alive on bill of his potent self-control. He is stunned by Palm ‘s declaration that everything is going to be all right. [ 27 ] Despite his incredulity, she manages to convince him that Komugi is a double-edged sword to the King and that the Royal Guards are divided on what to do with her. She speculates they are still alive because the King was ineffective to sense Komugi with his en while she was enveloped in her hair. She suggests they hide her, which Ikalgo interprets as Palm being volition to let Knuckle and Meleoron fail. Palm replies they only need to buy time until the King dies. Pressured by Ikalgo, she reveals the King was poisoned by the Poor Man ‘s Rose. Swallowing their feelings, they hide Komugi in a box in the warehouse. [ 28 ] After the end of the struggle, Ikalgo goes with the others into the hospital where Gon lies mortally wounded. With Palm, he waits outside the function board with a big bandage around his headway for his wound from Welfin ‘s black centipede attack, hoping for Gon ‘s recovery and slip concerned glances at Palm. After some fourth dimension, he sees her well up. She announces the King is dead. [ 29 ]

A few days former, Ikalgo talks to Gon in the hope he will recover. [ 30 ] When the son returns, Ikalgo, along with many other friends of Gon ‘s, monitors the surroundings of the hospital wing. [ 31 ] He is shocked by the enormous measure of aura being released in the build as Nanika restores Gon back to normal. [ 32 ] He is seen visiting a healing shoot in the hospital along with Knuckle, Palm, and Meleoron, and looking at the video of the Small-billed Swans sent by Gon. [ 33 ]

Abilities & Powers

During his time as a Chimera Ant Captain, he had authority over his underlings, [ 2 ] although he lost it after he allied himself with the Extermination Team. [ 3 ] As a Chimera Ant, he is capable of telepathic communication with other members of the same species. Although not a front-line fighter, Ikalgo is a reliable ally. His Nen abilities make him both a good sniper [ 5 ] and infiltrator. He is crafty, flying of think a well as an excellent strategist. [ 18 ] While inside his human host, he was capable of making long jumps and land from considerable heights without injury, [ 5 ] whereas while controlling Flutter ‘s body he gained access to his compound eyes, which allowed him to survive Dragon Dive unharmed. [ 16 ] Octopus Physiology: Ikalgo, having the genes of an octopus, can swim promptly, breathe subaqueous and cling to vertical surfaces using his sucking cups. He seems to feel no pain even if several of his tentacles are cut off, and the rake personnel casualty is minimal.

[ 2 ] Advanced Strength: Although he appears to be largely powerless in close-quarters battle, as Killua effortlessly cut off his tentacles when he attempted to restrain him, Ikalgo has enough lastingness in his limb to pierce through a human skull [ 5 ] and to break a rifle in two with a simpleton swipe motion. [ 2 ] Proficient Strategist: Ikalgo has demonstrated a fair amount of news during the infiltration in the Chimera Ants ‘ palace, particularly when confronting Bloster from the control room. On that juncture, he came up with a multitude of backing plans, besides showing considerable analytic skills in that they were made in a matter of seconds basing on the resources at his disposal. [ 21 ] [ 6 ] however, Ikalgo ‘s emotions can cloud his judgment and lead him to lower his guard duty. [ 22 ] Master Marksman: Ikalgo is a marksman with a enormous measure of skill. He can hit targets he can not see, provided he is given their position in a three-dimensional coordinate system, as showed when he shot Killua multiple times despite the latter being identical army for the liberation of rwanda away and hidden in the thick of a forest. [ 5 ] however, ascribable to a mental block, he can not bring himself to shoot to kill. [ 6 ] Skilled Driver: Ikalgo is shown to drive a large truck with relative relief a well as an armored vehicle .

Bullets of Flea )

Living Dead Dolls.jpg
Fleadom allows Ikalgo to turn two of his tentacles into an air rifle.[21] When residing inside a corpse, Ikalgo can use a special kind of giant fleas as rounds for the gun; they have a vertical leap of 200 meters (approx. 656 ft 2 in), and their saliva contains anticoagulant properties so potent that not even Killua was immune to it. The flea bullets boast impressive range and muzzle velocity and are powerful enough to knock an unaware individual back a few meters.[9] Furthermore, their trajectory did not appear to change in the slightest when Ikalgo was targeting Killua. However, they do not appear to be capable of killing the target directly, managing to draw blood but not proving lethal even when hitting a critical area such as the neck.[5] This would be in line with Ikalgo’s reluctance to kill.[6] The fleas can be conjured only if Ikalgo is puppeteering a corpse;[2] if he is not, he can conjure regular bullets.[6] The air gun needs to be recharged after every shot.[5] By pulling the trigger with an empty chamber, Ikalgo can utilize the stored air to propel himself backwards at high speed.[2]
