If Prime Netero is so strong that all his regular attacks hit as hard as Zero Hand, it's still questionable whether he could've made any lasting damage on Meruem. In the movie Netero and Jed fighting caused a nuclear esque explosion lol, take that as you will. Secondly, as he stated throughout the entire fight with Netero, he never said once he'd stop killing humans. Prime netero doesn't have much greater aura than old netero. I looked up the handicap listing and this is estimated equal to 8 tiers difference at the amateur level. Cause Meruem was a genocidal asshat that needed to be put down. I guess thats what happens when you put him against a near perfect being from a foreign place which holds even stronger opponents. If event the ants are this strong then how strong are the other beasts??? Netero is also an incredible character. I understand what he was trying to do it just wasn’t executed as well as it could have been. I hated the stupid "Rose Bomb" shit. I agree. If i’m not mistaken when Netero fought Meruem he was at 20% of his power due to aging and such. It'd be pretty hard for Netero to come back with news like 'well I made some great negotiations so Meruem agreed to only eat 90% of humans instead of 99.9999%'. Only that they would re-design which humans to be picked as food, and which one that should be allowed to live. We haven't seen any active top 5 fighting and we've seen there exists human with talent like Tserriednich (although we don't know what is his ceiling yet). Plus it's bad matchup for cat, even if Netero's Buddha is emission. Literally facing death he still managed to be a complete and utter badass until the absolute end. It spoke a lot to how not even one individuals own efforts and potential can come close to the malice/evolution of humanity, but humanity is also capable of great good and benevolence, which is what the CAA explores (two sides of the same coin, animal and man and the good and bad within both). On top of that we had Kite getting slayed after we had just found out he was Ging's disciple, we had Feitan and the Phantom Troupe annihilate the ants inhabiting Meteor City, and we had all of the other minor fights going on building the ever rising tension. On the contrary though he is limited by his Guanyin Bodhisattva seeing as it forces him to be stationary (or atleast it seems that way). Press J to jump to the feed. It also shows how the collective malice of humanity can help them persevere through even the biggest threat. Yeah I understand what you are saying. Cookies help us deliver our Services. I also enjoyed the strategic side of the fight (the dialogue I was talking about) because it gave an insight to what both characters were thinking and feeling. Any form of entertainment, information, or discussion centered around the world of HxH is welcome here. It does make sense, and the Bomb does highlight the atrocities human kind can create, but I guess I wasn’t expecting that from Netero lol. Honestly, whoever was the 'chosen ones' for human would be quite well off in Meruem's society because he seems to be a total meritocracy type of guy, but it'd really suck if you're an ordinary guy because you'd just be dinner for some random ant. Given the unbelievable difference Meruem and any human, using Rose is a necessity because there's no conceivable way they could've defeated him. Meruem's 'compassion' would be equivalent of human that says he supports ethical treatment of animals like free range chicken, but he still expects to eat the chicken. In other words, if Meruem is a Shogi grandmaster, then Netero is not even good enough to be a pro relative to him. I agree completely with what you said - the only reason I created this post was because although the fight was great, I was just underwhelmed with how they portrayed Netero’s strength. Good point on the Rose Bomb as well, I never thought of it in a way that it stands for how messed up and cruel humans can be as well. Of all the characters we had met up to that point, it was obvious that he was the only one who could even approach Meruem. I definitely think Netero was a trickster seeing as everyone in the series says it even after his death, but yes in that situation he was using his last resort. Netero got calls from some higher up people (I think it was the V5 or something) to eliminate the chimera ants, also when Meruem was wavering between human and ant I think it was meant to be completely uncertain where he would fall (after the Kyukashiki cannon he becomes quite ant like and it shows how malleable Meruem's nature was at that point I guess. To start off - I thought the fight was great. More posts from the HunterXHunter community. Just would have been nice to see Netero get the respect he deserves. One more thing. Gon's fangs could reach the King, but the king's durability is something I wouldn't bet against. The rose was amazing imo, it grounds the Nen power system as something that isn’t necessarily all powerful, which makes sense considering even in Yorknew technology and weapons can still harm Nen users (the Troupe besides Uvogun still need to dodge and shield themselves from gunshots). Will be extremely interesting if we can ever get it finished lol. When netero was at his peak he was even only fighting with his bare fist, netero just said his physical strength had decayed, he's not physically as strong as in his prime but it doesn't matter for his nen ability. (Idk what the actual name is). Neteros a human, do remember that. The fight was great and all but I do not think it should have been as one sided as it was. I know Netero was made out to be this old conniving trickster, but that was just cheap and tacky. Also Meruem's invincibility is also showing the strength of the Dark Continent. As we continued to hear more lore about him he became all the more enticing, and when the Chimera Ant Arc arrived we finally got to see just how badass and how much stronger this old man was compared to other strong hunters. Calling him "human" was still very generous, since he obviously still saw humans as a food source and closer to cattle than equal beings. Not only is he a badass old man (every good anime needs one of those), but his morals and overall purpose was interesting. Oh man was that ever hype. Theoretically there's no way Netero could damage the cat because of the aura output and overall stronger body, but nen-fights are more complex than that, as even Meruem was feeling dull pain. I don’t think prime netero would be able to beat meruem as I don’t think his increment in power would be that huge, that being said, I don’t think meruem would be able to beat netero either as the increment in speed would likely be substantial enough to render meruem’s strategy virtually useless. I'm siding with Prime Netero, being the #1 known nen user is a pretty big deal. If so, could he have beaten post rose Meruem? Prime netero's nen ability was as strong as when he fought meruem because it's power only comes from it speed, which never change. So he had no ways than stop Meruem (kill him) even if himself would die. Press J to jump to the feed.

Netero quickly became one of my favourite characters after convincing Gon and Killua to partake in a silly game with him during the Hunter Exam. Any form of entertainment, information, or discussion centered around the world of HxH is welcome here. Not only did he bring in that typical "oh I want to kill everyone and become the strongest", but as he spent more time with Komugi and more time around/fighting humans he began to understand their reasoning. I think most people totally missed how lopsided the fight is because Meruem used a Shogi analogy when he said fighting Netero in his terms (subdue him by countering his technique, no lethal damage) is equal to 3 pieces down in Shogi. Netero and Meruem are both great characters and it was a clash of two titans. netero says "i must fight him before my heart is swayed"? Immense Agility: Netero has an astounding sense of balance, balancing a glass on his toes and landing gracefully from a 60-foot jump while wearing a pair of geta. Seriously? The thing that got me going during this fight was when Netero said he can pray without hands. Only the RG and meruem were shown to be with an insane amount of aura of over 700k Prime netero probably doesn't even have half of that, he will scratch meruem slightly more than old neteros zero hand. It'd be pretty hard for Netero to come back with news like 'well I made some great negotiations so Meruem agreed to only eat 90% of humans instead of 99.9999%'.

As far as nen users, I don't believe any have been shown that could beat the king. Prime netero's nen ability was as strong as when he fought meruem because it's power only comes from it speed, which never change. Meruem is unfathomably strong and should never have been someone that you're expected to fight. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. Knowing that a fight between Netero and Meruem was inevitable, and knowing a fight between Gon and Pitou was also on its way. Maybe even making him unstoppable. This subreddit is dedicated to the Japanese manga and anime series Hunter X Hunter, written by Yoshihiro Togashi and adapted by Nippon Animation and Madhouse. The whole dynamic of the Chimera Ant Arc was incredibly dark and exciting. Netero isn’t a trickster imo, he had a mission and if he didn’t use every option available more humans would die and eventually the entire human race would be enslaved. Netero is definitely one of my favourite characters. The reason I said that though is because - as we know - Netero was always seeking the most powerful opponent he could find, and I was surprised when out of all things he resorted to something not based off of his own strength. Exactly. Meruem admitted that the only instance in which he loses to Netero in terms of speed is when the latter executes the motion to activate his 100-Type Guanyin Bodhisattva. Everyone is fanboy-ing on Meruem so hard that they forget how many people died directly or indirectly because of him. Would definitely be an incredible fight. Prime Netero can never wins against meruem in a fight. Netero claimed that even one of his Royal Guards, Neferpitou, was stronger than he was — against Meruem, the old man fought in vain, until he used the Nuclear Bomb + Secret Poison technique. Well said. Unless Ging has a hatsu of the same speed, Meruem would literally rip him apart before he could even react. Netero with a speed and agility buff would be scary. Meruem was a fantastic antagonist and his development was also top-tier. So doesn't that mean that Gon is gonna be as strong as the King when he's an adult/fully trained? Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. My problems start when Netero and Meruem actually begin fighting. It seems like you enjoyed the series as much as I did and I highly recommend the Manga as it expands on everything seen in the 2007 version of the show. Still a great fight and great arc. Atleast make it part of his Nen ability or something. To sum this up, the fight is great the way it is - but if they wanted to make the stakes a bit higher, they could have actually tested Meruem and made Netero seem as strong as he really is. and the last scene with meruem and komugi literally fucked me up lol i cried so hard. The Ants are portrayed as the monsters but the bomb shows that - like you said - even humans are full of malice. at the very begging meruem was evil but by the time he met netero it was obvious he stopped being evil and he even didn't like the idea of hypnotizing people i remember him saying something about it like "what's the point of having lifless puppets doing whatever i want" and even netero said he was wavering between ant and human but the human part was the dominant one so why did he kill him ?
