~ Killua Zoldyck

Killua Zoldyck is the deuteragonist of the anime/manga series Hunter × Hunter. He is the center child of the Zoldyck Family and best friend of Gon Freecss.

He is voiced by Kanako Mitsuhashi in the japanese adaptation of the 1999 anime and Annika Odegard in the English version, while in the 2011 zanzibar copal he is voiced by Mariya Ise in the japanese translation and Cristina Vee in the english version .


Killua was born as the middle child to a family of know assassins, the Zoldyck Family. Showing big promise from birth, Killua has already mastered many killing techniques at a tender age, and is set to be one of the best assassins the family has always produced. Bored and tired of killing, Killua by chance rebelled against his family, injured both his mother and second brother, and ran away from dwelling to take the Hunter Exam for fun. He meets Gon during the first helping of the Hunter Exam and they become the best of friends. He thinks being with Gon is exciting and adventurous. Killua divulges that ever since his birth, he has been in constant discipline for the occupation of a professional assassin. Killua had spent years trying to perfect alone skills that assassins portray and own. He was forced to battle in the Heavens Arena martial arts tournament at the old age of 6, in which he took two years to get to the 199th floor ( even though he has been accepted to the two-hundredth floor, he bailed out ) .


initially, Killua is introduced as a fictional character who seems like to Gon ; brash, cheerful, and full of mischievous ideas. He is besides one of the most quick-thinking characters in the series.

Killua is besides known for having a sweet tooth, as he spent about 200 million Jenny on snacks when he was at the Heavens Arena. His favorite nosh is cocoa, specifically the Chocolate Balls. however, his cruelty and aptitude in killing shows the other side of him — deadly, fierce, and bloodthirsty. Having been tortured since birth, Killua has been conditioned to possess extreme tolerance for poison, electricity and annoyance. He possesses extraordinary agility and potency that makes Killua a one-man kill machine — decidedly not one to be trifled with. Conflicting with Killua ‘s predisposal to kill is his unyielding loyalty to his friends and natural kindness. Killua much suffers vastly in his attempts to help his friends without a single ailment. He puts others before himself without being concerned about his own health or even his liveliness. Until recently, Killua ‘s greatest flaw was his reverence of those apparently more mighty than him ( one of whom being his elder buddy, Illumi ). Killua had been trained as an assassin by his buddy to be highly cautious that he only engages in battle provided that victory is absolutely certain. This impeded him as a Hunter, as Biscuit stated more than once that victory is never certain, and that depending on the circumstances, a person has the likely to defeat a stronger adversary. Killua particularly struggles with these dueling ideologies during the latter half of the series, as he begins to encounter stronger opponents. His buddy ‘s teachings remained securely entrenched in his take care, to a point at which Biscuit prophesied that he would one day abandon Gon because of this. Biscuit gave Killua an ultimatum : Defeat Shoot to claim the right to go with Gon and fight the Chimera Ants. Killua lost, and resolved to leave after Gon had recovered from his fight, protecting him in the interim. ultimately he had to face Biscuit ‘s prophecy when he encountered a Chimera Ant while Gon ( who could not use Nen at the time ) was not far off and had no way to defend himself. Killua made an try to save Gon. While fighting with the Chimera Ant, Killua was besides battling his inner self. Preoccupied, Killua was losing to the Chimera Ant. At the last consequence, Killua realized that Illumi had implanted a phonograph needle in his genius way back in the first base Hunter Exam. This phonograph needle was creditworthy for forcing Killua to retreat and jailing himself in his quilt zone whenever any site would potentially endanger his life sentence. Upon extracting the needle, Killua was freed from this constraint and gained full command of his subconscious mind to make his own decision whether or not to flee whenever there is a necessitate to fight stronger opponents .
