Morel Mackernasey

Calculating the odds of winning in Nen combat just shows how you’re missing the point. You never know what your adversary’s ability is. A slight hesitation can cause a fatal turnabout. The outcome is always a fluctuation. Having more or less aura isn’t much of an excuse. That’s the essence of Nen combat!

He is always seen wearing pince-nez sunglasses. He typically wears a red tie and a gray shirt, which he tucks into his pants. He besides carries a giant smoke pipe .


Like his colleagues, Morel is very experience in his field, patient, and calm. He is uncoerced to wait for quite some time for his plans to come to fruition and besides able to keep his cool in the middle of conflict. He is very perceptive of his opponents, particularly Cheetu and Leol, and used his calm disposal to outwit both of them. As the teacher of both Knuckle and Shoot, Morel proves to have well leadership skills and coordination with his teammates, although, like most Manipulators, he besides works consequently by himself. Despite all these, Morel is very aroused and has a great sense of compassion ; he once cried during the exchange between Colt and the Chimera Ant Queen, and promised Colt that he would protect him and “ Reina “ from injury. His emotional nature has rubbed off on his disciples, specially Knuckle Bine. [ 3 ]

Chimera Ant arch

When the V5 rent Chairman Netero to exterminate the Chimera Ants with any means, [ 4 ] the Chairman enlists Morel and Knov ‘s aid, despite intervention from Pariston. [ 5 ] They are tasked with killing the queen before she gives birth to the King, which is estimated to happen in two months at the earliest. [ 6 ] As the three company Netero to NGL, Knov and Morel leave their disciples in a town near the boundary line. [ 4 ] Morel makes his first appearance when he is about to cross into NGL with Netero and Knov. Upon meeting Killua at a checkpoint, he taunts the male child about the express of reverence that he is in. Killua replies that he thinks the three of them wo n’t stand much casual against Neferpitou, but Morel laughs it off, telling Killua that the result of a Nen battle is never certain and one has to fight with absolute assurance in victory. Upon hearing that Gon attempted to attack his foe, he comments he has more of a future than Killua. The three then advance into NGL. [ 7 ] When they come within sight of the nest, Netero wonders who between himself and Neferpitou is stronger. [ 6 ] Morel expects him to fight the Chimera Ant anyhow. Netero responds that even though their only prey is the Queen, the range of Neferpitou ‘s En makes a surgical assail on her impossible. They agree to slowly whittle down the foe ‘s numbers. Knov retrieves Morel ‘s shriek from his pocket proportion. Claiming they can take it slowly and enjoy it, the Sea Hunter creates an army of smoke bunnies to find out how many enemies they will have to deal with. [ 8 ] Over the path of ten-spot days, [ 9 ] the trio manages to eliminate two squadrons, always starting from the leader. Netero reckons the Ants will use baits and traps, which Morel claims he and Knov can easily separate, but the latter suggests intentionally falling in traps at times, both to exterminate some of the more organized troops before they can all band together and to create chaos. [ 10 ] For their following design, Morel creates a thick daze that covers an entire afforest near the Ant Queen ‘s colony while Knov places portals all over the ground. When a Chimera Ant falls into one, they find themselves in a large room conjured by Knov, where they are killed by the Chairman. Using this method, they manage to decimate 14 more squadrons. Morel feels their plan is unfair, to which Knov replies it is foolproof since, despite his modesty, Netero is still stronger than them and eager to fight. [ 11 ] The Ants finally wise up, and by the end of the fourth workweek they hole up inside the nest. Knov contacts Netero and asks him if they should take action. The Chairman insists on waiting for their disciples. When Morel objects they would not be not utilitarian in a competitiveness of that magnitude, Knov comments Netero likes to gamble and the two make a bet on whose pupils will show up the follow day. Morel wagers 100,000 Jenny Symbol 2011.svg on Knuckle and Shoot, adding the article that if they both lose, the pot goes to the Chairman. Knov bets for 1 million [ 12 ] that Gon, Killua, and Palm will come along excessively, [ 13 ] which Morel regards as throwing money down the drain. [ 12 ] The follow day, they see Colt flying towards them. Knov opens a portal site, but Morel notices the Ant is carrying a white flag. He comes to them with the purpose of surrendering, telling them about the previous birth of the King and begging them to save the Queen. [ 14 ] He warns them that should the Queen die, the Squadron Leaders will leave the nest and try to spread their seed. Knov confirms to Morel it is potential. Morel accepts to take Colt to the Chairman but adds that he can not promise Netero will want to help him or spare his biography. When he accepts anyhow, they enter Knov ‘s portal site. [ 13 ] The four relocate to a deluxe room where Netero requests the Hunter Association to send Dr. Lee, her best surgeons and artificial organ specialists to the Queen ‘s nest. Knov and Morel are worry to see him don his “ affection ” t-shirts, which he reserves for serious fights. The Sea Hunter is amazed by Netero ‘s dressed air flow, which gives him the impression he is being stabbed by needles. To his and Knov ‘s astonishment, Colt estimates that the Chairman will be killed by one of the Royal Guards before he can reach the King. Netero leaves Morel in charge and prepares to leave, causing the Sea Hunter to worry that he is going to take on the King by himself. [ 3 ] They return to the colony with the surgeons. Despite the doctors ‘ efforts, all they can do is to prolong the dying moment of the Queen for a few minutes. Morel is shocked to discover some Ants retain memories from their lives as humans. When Colt finds a child in the Queen ‘s consistency, Morel admonishes him to leave and hide where he can not find him if he can not swear he and the baby will never eat a homo ; cry, he besides vows that, if they can, he will protect them with his biography. [ 3 ] After Shoot and Knuckle capture Kite in the Queen ‘s nest, Morel and the latter move to the Republic of Rokario to handle Cheetu, [ 15 ] a former Squadron Leader with superhuman speed who killed and injured a number of humans in the vicinity of Pata City. [ 16 ] The two of them ambush Cheetu on a road, with Morel hiding in a smoke screen and Knuckle stand in front of it. Cheetu effortlessly dodges Knuckle ‘s punch and Morel ‘s pilfer attack, causing the Sea Hunter to praise his reflexes, and showers the two with punches without them being able to react. [ 15 ] even though the two Hunters manage to follow him with their view after a while, their bodies are excessively dense to keep up with him. Morel blows more roll of tobacco, enveloping the three of them. When Knuckle moves in to attack Cheetu, Morel sends several fume puppets with his appearance to encircle the Chimera Ant. Frozen by the surprise, Cheetu can not prevent Knuckle from putting an A.P.R. on him. The former Squadron Leader tries to chase Knuckle in the smoke, but Morel trips him before retreating. The two Hunters hide in the surrounding vegetation with Zetsu. Cheetu runs away. Fearing he will get stronger, Morel contacts the Hunter Association to send person who can match up well with him. [ 17 ] Through Colt, the Extermination Team becomes mindful of the “ Sorting ” and that the Royal Guards know how to awaken Nen by push. Netero infiltrates the Republic of East Gorteau and warns the Extermination Team to assume the worst if they do not hear from him by the appointed day. Ten days before the muster announced by Ming Jol-ik takes place, Knov, Morel, Knuckle, Shoot, Gon and Killua take a string to East Gorteau. Morel remarks taking all of them breaks their promise to Netero, but Knov points out their agreement was for NGL, not East Gorteau, which Morel sees as splitting haircloth. however, he does not want to make them turn binding. When shoot voices his doubts about Gon, Morel replies he has the impression Gon has been saving his motivation to unleash it on his enemy. While they eat in a restaurant, Knov and Morel update the others on the “ Sorting ” and Netero ‘s movements. At that moment, Netero sends Knov a textbook, causing Morel to wonder aloud if he has satellite dishes for ears, a comment that Netero anticipated. [ 18 ] That night, Morel confronts Gon, pretending to have doubts about him being part of the Extermination Team. He orders him to strike him with his fully power as though he were Neferpitou. He removes his shirt and bulks up in readiness for Gon ‘s attack, alone to shiver and break into a cold fret upon sensing his bloodlust and power. Killua stops Gon and asks Morel if it is adequate. Morel bursts into a laugh and approves of Gon, believing him to have the right touch of folly. Following the Chairman ‘s instructions, the Extermination Team divides into three groups of two—Morel and Knov versus Shaiapouf, Knuckle and Shoot versus Menthuthuyoupi, Gon and Killua versus Neferpitou—and separate the Royal Guards from the King. [ 18 ] Nine days prior to the planned attack, in the even, Knov and Morel spill the beans to Marcos, a military drawing card in Ming Jol-ik ‘s politics, persuading him to sign an agreement whereby he shall disclose all military information in exchange for refuge for himself and his family. Morel thanks him for his aid, while condemning his hypocrisy to himself. He swallows his irritation and instructs Marcos to go about his daily routine as common. [ 19 ] The two Hunters learn through Gon or Killua that the “ Sorting ” has already begun, and through Knuckle that Cheetu has escaped capture. Morel hangs up, on his schoolchild and contacts the Hunter Association, throwing a fit because the Review Board did not select Likke as he recommended. Morel and Knov discuss the corruption in the Hunter Association, with Morel growing so frustrated at the shady moves of the pro- Vice-Chairman cabal to sabotage Chairman Netero ‘s plan and win the future Chairman election that he knocks Knov ‘s book off his bridge player. He laments that letting 5,000,000 fail to ensure the end of the King is excessively eminent a price. He receives a call from Marcos, who tells him that agitation is spreading through the area. When Ming, manipulated by the Chimera Ants, appears on television and announces the enforce of warlike law, Morel, rejoicing, realizes that Gon and Killua are responsible for obstructing the “ Sorting ”. [ 5 ] Morel puts the capital city Peijin under siege using his “ Smoke Troopers ”, with Knov ‘s aid. [ 20 ] As he anticipated, Neferpitou recalls all their controlled puppets to protect the city, although the unpredictable demeanor of the King is a minor source of worry for Morel. Three days late, Morel runs into Cheetu again, noticing he has become stronger and that A.P.R. is gone, [ 21 ] which leads him to infer the Chimera Ants have an exorcist on their side. He resolves to fight Cheetu in case he is the one. He activates Deep Purple, but Cheetu runs through the fastball and punches him. He initially assumes that the Ant has not changed his tactics. To his shock absorber, the two are teleported to a savanna-like space. Cheetu excitedly announces they are starting a bet on of tag and that Morel has 8 hours to tag him. Morel, however, begins exploring his surroundings. Fearing the air from Deep Purple would not return to him if he deactivated his “ Smoke Troopers ”, he decides to make do with his remaining air. He tries smashing the hourglass, to no avail. He asks Cheetu what will happen if he does not catch him in clock time, noticing his ability was influenced by Hakoware, but the Ant does not reply. Morel thus lays down and declares he is going to sleep for five hours while thinking that Cheetu does not understand that his own ability is not a contest of focal ratio, but of wills. [ 22 ] Morel keeps pretending to try to sleep while Cheetu pesters him. He swings his pipe at him, annoyed, and lies back down, thinking that arsenic soon as the Ant grows tired and takes his eyes off him, it is his victory. [ 23 ] When Cheetu starts to read, Morel creates a rope out of smoke and ties it around his ankle. [ 24 ] He then makes a knockoff of himself, to whom he leaves his pipe with the rope, with his smoke and covers himself with grass-colored smoke. [ 25 ] Around the four-hour commemorate, he makes the clone stand up and point out the r-2 to Cheetu, who unsuccessfully tries to run away and break it while the clone reels him in. [ 24 ] Cornered, Cheetu conjures a crossbow and hook. The clone easily blocks his arrow and provokes Cheetu by insulting his intelligence. Enraged, Cheetu stabs it with the claw, only to realize it was made out of smoke. Morel then touches his shoulder, stating he should have never looked away from him. The two are teleported back to Peijin, with Cheetu losing the will to fight. Morel enquires what would have happened had he failed to catch him. Cheetu replies it does not matter, as he can no longer use that ability. In high spirits, he rushes off to get another ability from Shaiapouf, with Morel wishing there were more enemies that easy to deal with. [ 25 ] Morel surmises one of the Royal Guards has the baron to bestow Nen abilities onto others. He is contacted by Knov, who takes him in his air pocket property and informs him that two more Ants, a lobster and a wolf, are looking for them. He adds that there seems to be a stalemate, which he attributes to his taking out Flutter. [ 25 ] Later that lapp day, all of Neferpitou ‘s puppets, equally well as their En, vanish, which causes the two Hunters to realize something good has happened in the Royal Palace. Morel advances that it could be a trap, but Knov states the Royal Guards would never do anything that could endanger the King. The two split up—Knov is going to infiltrate the palace to create an “ exit ” while Morel stays in Peijin. [ 26 ] Morel notices he is being followed by Leol and, ascribable to his miss of cognition about the area, is led in an underground chapel service. Morel takes note of the Ant ‘s assurance, which he believes will make him careless. He waits excitedly while Leol prepares his ability. He is surprise to see the Ant wear earphones. When he mentions being a fan of the second base album of the band Black Planet, Morel thinks it is difficult to fight person with the like tastes as him. He is shocked when Leol activates Inamura, instantaneously recognizing it as Grachan ‘s ability. He manages to deflect Leol ‘s harpoon hit but is cut by his surfboard. He angrily claims the ability does not belong to Leol and swings his pipe at him. Dodging the attacks, Leol uses Tornave and sucks him into a whirlpool. ineffective to move due to the pressure, he manages to free himself by exhaling. Forming another raft with his pot to stand atop the water, he claims his twist has come. [ 27 ] He tells Leol he has realized three things about his ability, starting by saying he can borrow early people ‘s powers. By stating his earphones are only for usher, he lures Leol into talking second, confirming he is not restricting one of his senses to strengthen his ability. He concludes the tilt by angrily claiming Leol steal Inamura from his friend Grachan and vows to kill him. He dismisses Leol ‘s defense that he is entirely borrowing the ability. When the Ant raises a tsunami with Big Wall, Morel takes a deep hint and lets himself be submerged again. Sitting at the bottom of the chapel, he forms his fume into hoses and begins to exhale, quickly converting the oxygen in the close venue into CO2, poisoning Leol and causing him to drown. Morel then swims out of the chapel. [ 28 ] Upon reuniting with Knov, Morel discovers his supporter has had a mental dislocation upon seeing Shaiapouf ‘s aura, although he successfully planted all the portals. Two days before the foray into, he updates the early Extermination Team members on the situation. [ 29 ] On the eve of the fire, Killua, Gon, and Ikalgo contact him to tell him they suspect Neferpitou rescinded their en to treat the King. Morel objects that the Royal Guards would have never injured him and that all other Ants would have been unable to. Their hypothesis that the King suffering himself leaves him feeling flabbergasted and uneasy. [ 30 ] At 2 post meridiem, 10 hours before they strike, Morel, Shoot, Knuckle, and Meleoron gather in Knov ‘s pouch property. When Knov offers to keep watch over the Royal Guards, Morel warns him to watch out for Neferpitou ‘s irregularly-shaped En. [ 31 ] Morel welcomes the news that Shaiapouf is hypnotizing the people gathered for the “ Sorting ” with easing, as that will prevent mass panic. At 6 post meridiem, Gon, Killua, and Ikalgo enter the pocket dimension excessively. Gon asks if they have heard from Palm, which they have n’t. Morel states they will start moving at 11:30. He notes with regret that the continuous battles have left him at 35 % of his office, but with Knov ‘s withdrawal from the mission, he intends to go on. When the time comes, he gives the signal so the Extermination Team can move to a room whose passing is closer to the palace. They wait outside for 20 minutes, keeping an eye on the palace. [ 32 ] They all agree to infiltrate through the portal site close to the throne room, the one at the infantry of the central stairway. [ 33 ] The Extermination Team enters the concluding room seven minutes before the attack, with Morel stating that they will gather around the die in six minutes. He overhears Killua and Ikalgo talk about unanticipated circumstances and, barging in, suggests one of them would be a woman since one of the King ‘s goals is to reproduce and his activities in the palace are unknown. Knuckle advances that Bizeff may have been procuring women not for himself, but for the King, which leads the Extermination Team, with the exception of Gon, to worry about Palm ‘s condition. Morel declares no amends will be made to the plan regardless of her express. Killua is still concerned about the King hurt himself and Morel proposes a brainstorming of possible scenarios. Gon states that the inability to forgive oneself is one. From it, Morel deduces that the King is proud and would never do anything against his will, which makes combat ineluctable. He then tells the others to gather in front of the die. [ 34 ] Ten seconds before midnight, he begins the countdown. [ 35 ] He is the death one to storm the palace. [ 36 ] ampere soon as he emerges adjacent to the stairway, he is surprised to find Menthuthuyoupi guarding it and to be unable to feel Neferpitou ‘s En. As he prepares to blow smoke, Zeno ‘s Dragon Dive rains down on the palace, which he manages to avoid. He is initially shocked when Gon charges at the Royal Guard, and only a few instants belated, does he realize that Gon is preparing to fight him in encase Meleoron and Knuckle were killed by Dragon Dive without God’s Accomplice being deactivated. He fears Shoot will have a breakdown, but his disciple cursorily regains his composure. He smiles when Menthuthuyoupi is pushed to the side by an invisible impel, indicating Knuckle and Meleoron survived. [ 37 ] The Extermination Team freezes for a moment when Neferpitou ‘s aura envelops them, which Menthuthuyoupi exploits to launch a lay waste to attack that shatters the stairway. [ 38 ] Morel comes out of it unharmed, although he is pushed back to the bottom of the stairs. unable to call out to Knuckle, he entrusts Menthuthuyoupi to Shoot and mixes his smoky aura with the debris. From it, several “ Smoke Troopers ” issue which the Royal Guard rips apart in a flash. Morel hands his pipe to a knockoff with his appearance, who attacks Menthuthuyoupi from the side. As he focuses on the clone, Morel manages to slip past him. Before the Royal Guard can give chase, Knuckle punches him again. [ 39 ] Through the smoky aura he previously spread through the palace, Morel senses that Shaiapouf is in the toilet room. While he climbs up the stairs, Shoot returns his pipe to him. Morel gives his disciple a thumbs-up and thinks to himself he wants to go drinking with them, so he can convince them to a group embrace. [ 40 ] Eight seconds after the beginning of the invasion, Morel manages to lock a distraught Shaiapouf in his Smoky Jail. The Royal Guard tries to fly aside without paying Morel any beware, to the latter ‘s pique. After the Hunter proclaims he can not let him go, Shaiapouf scatters his Spiritual Message. [ 41 ] Morel holds his breath not to breathe in his hypnotic scales, ignoring Shaiapouf ‘s questions and remarks. When the Royal Guard envelops himself in his wings, Morel thinks that regardless of what he transforms into, he will gain precious time. [ 42 ] About two minutes late, he hears Menthuthuyoupi call out to Shaiapouf, and wonders about Knuckle and Shoot ‘s condition, Netero ‘s mission, and why the Royal Guard does not answer from inside the cocoon. The latter question leaves Morel hesitant and restlessness, but he steels himself and focuses on his task. Smoky Jail resists Menthuthuyoupi ‘s slashes [ 43 ] and former his explosion, but, unbeknown to Morel, Shaiapouf begins to slip through the particles of smoke in the form of trillions of microscopic bugs. [ 44 ] Morel agonizes over whether Shaiapouf did not reply to Menthuthuyoupi because he was in a formless state and absolutely vulnerable, or if the cocoon is a ambush, and in that event, if it will be triggered by an dysphemistic natural process or if it is precisely a way to stall. [ 45 ] Realizing Shaiapouf entered his pupal phase lone after Morel ‘s intentions were clear, the Hunter positions to strike with his pipe. not sensing any reaction from inside the cocoon, he destroys it and deactivates Smoky Jail, finding Shaiapouf standing just outside of it. He explains how he came to that decision, but the Royal Guard chuckles [ 46 ] and discloses he expected Morel to waste 15 minutes before he decided to cancel his ability. Morel comments that he gave him excessively little credit, but Shaiapouf retorts he overestimated him before splitting himself up in with Beelzebub. The Royal Guard claims he was in a predicament while confined, which Morel dismisses as a bluff to make him interview himself. As he keeps taunting him, Morel forms “ Smoke Troopers ” that attack the fragments, which however reform immediately, causing Morel to wonder if his opponent is invincible. They thank him once again before disappearing into the night. Determined not to let himself be disheartened and dwell on the past, Morel tries to figure out where he will go. however, Shaiapouf reforms right behind him. He kicks down the Hunter and flies away with his organ pipe. [ 47 ] immediately subsequently, Morel is spotted by Menthuthuyoupi, behind whom Knuckle besides appears. unable to activate any new abilities, the Sea Hunter gives his 89 “ Smoke Troopers ” Knuckle ‘s appearance and surrounds the Royal Guard. [ 47 ] He mows depressed over 20 in only a few seconds. Morel sends a “ Smoke Trooper ” to exploit an opening intentionally left by the Royal Guard, who counters. The Sea Hunter mocks him, stating the real one was never there. Incensed, Menthuthuyoupi jumps towards Morel, ready to burst, but the veridical Knuckle punches him aside, which allows the two Hunters to escape the explosion. [ 48 ] Morel sends his “ Smoke Troopers ”, some of which he has turned into copies of himself, into the volcanic crater, where Menthuthuyoupi has mutated into a centaur-like freak. Laughing savagely, he goes back to dispatching the smoke soldiers. [ 49 ] When, around the nine-minute mark, only ten are left, Morel infers the Royal Guard is intentionally saving him for last. His exhaustion is such that, by the time the concluding “ Smoke Trooper ” vanishes, Morel can no longer stand, having reached his limit before Hakoware forced Menthuthuyoupi in a state of Zetsu. by chance, the latter expresses admiration for the Hunters. As he is about to be killed, Morel thinks that he does not mind dying at the Royal Guard ‘s hands. [ 4 ] Before Menthuthuyoupi can land the concluding gust, Morel disappears thanks to Meleoron ‘s God’s Accomplice. Nevertheless, his blade sinks deeply into Morel ‘s back. As he is dragged away by Meleoron, he leaves a blood way behind, which allows Menthuthuyoupi to locate them. Knuckle arrives and begs him to let them go. Menthuthuyoupi refuses, but offers to spare them he if releases Hakoware. Morel yell at his disciple to refuse. Meleoron lets go of him, so he returns visible and audible. even when the Royal Guard walks towards him, he keeps telling Knuckle to let him die. Despite his words, the sight of his dominate causes Knuckle to cave and he dispels A.P.R. Morel despairs, their only luck of defeating Menthuthuyoupi vanished. The Royal Guard spares all of them and leaves to look for the King. [ 50 ] Knuckle rushes to help his teacher, who however angrily swats his hand off and orders him to go after Menthuthuyoupi. Knuckle confesses he can no longer see him as an enemy, but Knov abruptly appears and points out that the Royal Guard will return pitiless if only the King tells him so. He sets up a portal so he can take Morel to receive treatment, and, after the Sea Hunter tries to stand up to hit his pupil, announces that Netero has taken the King to the appointed place. As he is taken away, the Morel flips Knuckle off. [ 51 ] After the Chimera Ant Extermination mission is completed, Morel is hospitalized. He makes his report to Beans on the phone, stating that Netero succeeded but that he could not verify Meruem ‘s death in person, a matter he entrusted to Palm. At Beans objection, Morel despitefully retorts that those who are out on the field trust the competence of their comrades. The secretary warns him the Vice Chairman ‘s cabal will not accept that logic and that he might be subjected to a hearing if the data leaks. Morel then contacts Colt, informing him that the surviving Chimera Ants will be classified as charming Beasts and that their role in the incident in East Gorteau was covered up. He overhears the child Colt has found in the Queen ‘s remains protest that her name is not Reina, but Kite. Morel rushes to tell Gon and Killua. [ 52 ]

Morel has the entirely official exorcist in the Hunter Association come to the hospital to lift the Vow that put Gon in a coma and risks killing him, but she claims there is nothing she can do. Leorio visits Gon and has a heated conversation with Killua and his butler Gotoh on the call. He refuses to hand his telephone over to Morel, who calmly tells him to do then when he hears a demand that to him sounds impossible. Gotoh says to heal Gon there must be cipher but Gon in the building, to which Leorio replies they can not evacuate a national hospital. Morel takes the telephone and assures Gotoh that his condition will be met by building a annex barely for Gon in the park lot. He then calls Knov, telling him to prepare automatic machinery and that the contents of the board should be invisible to all. He agrees it sounds like Killua is bringing an exorcist, but from the way the boy spoke he suspects it is something else. He insists to honor Killua ‘s request and not make any other questions. Hearing this, Leorio leaves him his call as he heads out to have a discussion with person. [ 53 ] soon subsequently, he finishes 8th in the fourthly orotund of the 13th Hunter Chairman Election and becomes one of the 16 candidates in the fifth attack. It is besides suggested that he may qualify for a Triple-Star Hunter License thanks to his contributions to the extinction of the Chimera Ants. [ 54 ] Killua calls him to explain that his brother Illumi is chasing him down to kill Alluka, the merely person who, through granting wishes, is capable of healing Gon, and that he will manipulate civilians to do indeed. Killua asks him to inform Teradein ‘s cabal of his brother ‘s flagitious actions so they will hunt him down to further their own agenda. Morel agrees, with the stipulation, he will tell them Illumi himself is besides dangerous to pursue. [ 55 ] Morel passes the fifth cycle of the election, but is pushed off the number of candidates in the sixth turn. [ 56 ] Teradein asks Morel to become their new captain after Bushidora ‘s death. Undeterred, Teradein announces in a video recording to the Hunters that negotiations with Morel are afoot, which prompts Morel to respond in kind. In his video recording, he stresses he has no intention of being part of their cabal or becoming Chairman, and criticizes him for ignoring his advice and dispersing his forces, besides warning him that threatening to leak the killers ‘ information will get them killed—which, in fact, it does. [ 57 ] When Killua and Alluka enter the special wing where Gon is and Nanika begins to heal him, Morel is appalled by the atrocious aura he perceives. [ 58 ] After Gon is amply healed he leads him to Leorio, who is in the vote board where all the Hunters are voting for the 13th president, giving him a thumbs-up while crying. While everybody celebrates Gon ‘s convalescence, Morel requests from Leorio to not let Gon know that it was thanks to Killua he was healed. [ 59 ] Later, Knov hands Morel the money of their by stake since Morel ‘s students were the ones who arrived on the harmonize date. Morel uses the money they had both waged to buy an expensive bottle of wine and drink to Netero ‘s memory, placing a glass in front of a video of the late chair. [ 60 ]

He uses his organ pipe not only for his Nen abilities but besides as a melee weapon, which he swings single-handed and without attempt despite its weight. He besides possesses an odd lung capacity and firm spirit. By his own claim, his abilities work better as back and he does n’t think of himself as a very potent fighter ; in hurt of this, he strategically defeated two mighty Squadron Leaders. By increasing the size of his muscles, he can enhance his force and defensive structure in preparation for a strong attack. He displayed this ability when testing the office of Gon ‘s Rock after the latter recovered his Nen. [ 18 ] He is besides valued by the Zodiacs for his seafaring abilities, taking it upon himself to steer their ship in the waters of the Dark Continent. [ 62 ] Preternatural Perception: Morel was able to tell that Cheetu had powered up with with only a glance. [ 21 ] Enhanced Strength: Morel can wield his giant star pipe as a club without attempt, both with one and two hands, and even lift it with merely two fingers.

[ 21 ] Enhanced Speed and Reflexes: After being repeatedly struck by Cheetu ‘s fast punches, he was able to see Cheetu ‘s movements and quickly got accustomed to his amphetamine. [ 17 ] A clone of him managed to easily intercept an arrow shoot by Cheetu at mid-range. [ 25 ] Advanced Agility: Morel can run on the rooftops and jump from one to another while carrying his huge pipe on his back. [ 21 ] Superhuman Lung Capacity: As a Sea Hunter, Morel has excellent lungs, allowing him to stay submerged for an run time period of meter without taking any breath. He is convinced that they are second to none. [ 27 ] It is his proficiency in apnea that helped him win the conflict against Leol in an belowground church filled with water, beginning by letting him stay safe at the bottomland, then by allowing him to exhale huge quantities of carbon dioxide to poison his adversary. Despite emitting enough of it to fill a good fortune of a church, he managed to swim without breathing long adequate to escape the maze-like building. [ 28 ] Proficient Strategist: Morel can formulate accurate predictions on his opposition ‘s move and has proved to be able to analyze hostile capabilities and thought patterns efficiently. He can devise effective strategies in a matter of instants, constantly exploiting his or his students ‘ capabilities to the fullest. According to Shaiapouf, his decision, firm will, and confidence in himself bolster his defensive powers greatly. besides, Morel ‘s years of experience can unconsciously lead him to pick the best option. He can keep his cold blood in highly dangerous situations. [ citation needed ] Weapon Specialist: Although he rarely switches to close-quarters fight, Morel can use his giant pipe as a club, delivering hard blows with only one hand. [ 21 ] [ 27 ]


Morel is a Manipulator *. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] He is a seasoned hailed as a very capable Nen drug user, and his two pupils are adequate to fighters in their own correctly. Knuckle, who has fought more than 5000 battles, claims Morel has the most abundant aura pool he had always seen anterior to meeting Youpi, amounting to 70,000 aura units, [ 38 ] more than three times larger than Gon ‘s ( 21,500 aura units ). [ 64 ] At 35 % of his point condition, [ 32 ] Morel spread his smoky aura over a large area, [ 40 ] summoned and controlled several smoke puppets, [ 39 ] [ 47 ] and maintained his impregnable Smoky Jail active for a few minutes. [ 46 ] He is capable of using Ken, although he was frightened by an enrage Gon ‘s Jajanken, and the latter indeed apologized, claiming his attack could have killed him. [ 18 ] Morel is besides a technical Zetsu user, which, coupled with his ability to manipulate the smoke from his pipe, allows him to conceal his position to hide [ 17 ] or launch a storm fire. [ 15 ] On top of Manipulation, Morel appears to be skilled in Enhancement, which he uses to increase his defensive abilities. Morel easily withstood Cheetu ‘s numerous, rapid blows. [ 17 ] furthermore, he successfully held his breath when hit by the waves and maelstrom produced by Leol, adenine well as enduring the relatively eminent water atmospheric pressure apparently without campaign. [ 27 ] [ 28 ] Shaiapouf, one of the Royal Guards, did not do any detectable wrong to him with a stomping kick back, after which Morel was cursorily back on his feet. [ 47 ] It besides appears to grant him with exceeding recovery abilities, since he was able to stand up and run [ 52 ] a mere few hours after suffering a deep, potentially deadly wind. [ 4 ] [ 50 ] Morel is besides technical at Emission [ 21 ] and Transmutation, [ 21 ] [ 40 ] [ note 1 ] despite the latter being the category he has the lowest affinity for. Since it is made out of air, the smoke functions as an En of sorts, allowing him to sense the presence of anyone engulf in it with enough accuracy to tell people aside. With this ability, he was able to cover at least a few floors of Ming Jol-ik ‘s palace. [ 40 ] This effectively prevents him from being obstructed by his own smoke screens. The custom of transformation might besides be at the heart of his ability to change the color of his smoke ; [ 25 ] however, the consistency of the universe remains like to that of roll of tobacco, so the antic becomes obvious upon contact. [ 39 ] His smoke-like air is fabulously realistic, tricking many Nen users into thinking it was actual smoke [ 17 ] or dust, [ 41 ] and since no combustion is involved, it can be summoned even underwater. [ 28 ] The downside to Morel ‘s smoke-related abilities is that he can not activate new ones without his pipe and is forced to rely on existing smoky air in that event. [ 47 ]

Morel’s Nen Type: Manipulation *
Type: Emission, Manipulation, and Transmutation[21] Deep Purple (

This ability allows Morel to transmute his aura into smoke[21][note 2] and to manipulate it in any way he sees fit. With the aid of his giant pipe, he produces great amounts of smoke which he can then shape in countless constructs, such as ropes,[24] grass,[25] hoses,[28] rafts,[27] rabbits,[8] dolls,[21] and even replicas of individuals fully capable of speech[25] and with remarkable strength[24] and speed, although physical contact with them will expose the trick.[25] Smoke constructs can also be told apart from living beings with En,[8] although not with general aura sensing.[21] Morel can change the color of the smoke to make the created objects seem more realistic, even using them to blend into his surroundings,[25] as well as modify their durability to the point they can become virtually indestructible.[24] The versatility of Deep Purple is such that Morel boasted he had yet to meet a Nen user with a more flexible ability.[8] His most complex creations are the Smoke Troopers. [ 21 ] [ 40 ] Morel can emit cores wherein he puts elementary Manipulation commands, such as to attack defensively and retreat when encountered by an foe, before covering the cores with smoke and mold them into his Troopers, which then start acting automatically. [ 21 ] It is possible that the cores are not always required, as Morel was able to create Troopers directly from his exhale pot. In this case they seem to operate by taking direct orders from Morel rather than relying on preset commands. [ 47 ] alternatively, it is possible that Morel can form the cores remotely, at the like time as he shapes the fume into constructs. Morel can create a utmost of 216 dolls. By sacrificing quantity to gain quality, he can compress that amount to 50. These dolls then become more complex than his even dolls, [ 21 ] and Neferpitou admitted their quality was superscript to the one they controlled. [ 66 ] Deep Purple caps Morel ‘s aura output. Dispelling the constructs enables Morel to retrieve the aura he poured into them and utilize it again. [ 22 ]
Type: Manipulation[41]Transmutation[40] Smoky Jail (



Sumōkī Jeiru, unhorse. “ Jailhouse Rock ” )

114 - Smoky Jail.png Morel encases himself and the opponent in an impenetrable barrier made out of smoke.[41] The barrier appears to be unbreakable both from the inside and the outside, as Menthuthuyoupi was unable to damage it with his regular attacks[67] as well as his explosions. Only particle-sized bodies can cross it.[68] Since the smoky aura is detached from his body, Emission might also be involved in the ability.



  • (To Killua) “Always fight like you’re 100% confident you’ll win!!”[7]
  • (To Knov and Netero) “Well, let’s take it slowly. We might as well enjoy it while we’re at it.”[8]
  • (To Colt) “Can you swear that you and that baby will never eat a human? If you can’t, go somewhere I’ll never find you. But if you can… I’ll never let anyone harm you two!! As long as I’m alive! That’s a promise.”[3]
  • (To Knov) “Even if we manage to kill the King, it will be a failure if we let five million people die!!”[5]
  • “Heh, piss yourself off. You don’t understand your ability one bit. This isn’t a test of speed. It’s a contest of wills!!”[22]
  • (To Cheetu) “Did you notice? It’s not time to begin. It’s already over.”[24]
  • (To Cheetu) “I’ll tell you why you’re gonna lose. ‘Cause you’re a complete moron.”[25]
  • (To Cheetu) “The battle goes on even while you sleep. You should’ve never taken your eyes off me.”[25]
  • “A guy who thinks all is going according to plan will show off his ability like there’s no tomorrow!!”[27]
  • “I’ve yet to meet anyone with a more flexible ability than my Deep Purple!!”[27]
  • “I feel a tingling up my spine. The moment opponents showcase each one’s abilities!! It’s addictive.”[27]
  • “Yeah, so it may be wiser to attack before he shows his ability. But that’s not how a man fights.”[27]
  • “It’s hard to fight someone with the same tastes as mine…”[27]
  • (To Leol) “He was helping exterminate Chimera Ants, so you must have defeated him. For taking his ability, you deserve to die a thousand deaths!! Your life ends… today!![28]
  • “Something inside the palace is going haywire… Uh-oh… Now I’m starting to think something’s going to go wrong…”[30]
  • “I would’ve liked to have been at full strength… but if I have no reserves, at least I can resign myself to my fate.”[32]
  • “Shoot! Knuckle! Once this is over, let’s drink ourselves silly with the best booze! That’s the only way I can think of to convince you guys to a group hug!!”[40]
  • “Right at this moment… I don’t mind being killed by him…”[4]
  • (To Beans) “I’m sure one of your pencil-pushers would write a perfect follow-up report. You guys sit at your comfy desks in air-conditioned rooms. It’s different out here. When someone we trusts says they’ll handle it, they’ll handle it.[52]
  • (To Leorio) “You’re going to say, ‘It can’t be done.’ Then you’ll hand the phone over. Because I can get it done!”[53]
  • (To Knov) “Killua said to trust him. When one of my men says that, the rule of the front lines is to shut up and leave it to him.”[53]
  • (To Teradein) “I’m a Sea Hunter!! You don’t tie an ocean man to dry land!!”[57]


  • Morel is in possession of the best lung capacity in the whole series; ironically, he is also its grandest smoker.
    • However, despite his signature identity revolving much around the notion of smoking, it is unclear whether or not Morel is actually a smoker himself: the smoke in his ability Deep Purple is transmuted from his Nen, and he so far has never been seen lighting his giant pipe for smoke or smoking outside of combat.
    • The names of Morel’s abilities, the preview for Episode 107, and the fact that the character is based on Ramo Nakajima make it possible that what Morel smokes may not be tobacco smoke.
  • Morel’s eyes are never shown. He wears sunglasses even underwater and at night. He was also allowed to wear his sunglasses inside NGL, although his pipe was transported via Knov’s Hide and Seek ability.
  • According to the “Hunter × Hunter Manual” section found in the Yu ☆ Yu ☆ Hakusho official character book (Shueisha Jump remix), * Morel’s stats are:
