"All exams should be like this. They have to be strong anyway."

— 288th Hunter Exam's 1st Phase Examiner "The Exam Begins"

The 288th Hunter Exam's 1st Phase Examiner is a pro-Hunter and was the examiner of the 288th Hunter Exam. He is a laid-back middle-aged man.[1]


He is a man of average height and build. He has lime green hair and dark eyebrows and a goatee. He is seen wearing a violet shirt with dark purple marking on it and red pants. He also wears an array of jewelry.[1]


He appears to be a very flashy and flamboyant man, doing everything with flair. In his own belief to be a Hunter, one must have strength, which is why he made the First Phase of the 288th Hunter Exam a battle royale.[1]


At one point in his life, he decided to take the Hunter Exam. He passed and eventually became an examiner for the exam itself.


Greed Island arcEdit


The Examiner welcomes the examinees

The Examiner welcomes all of the 288th Hunter Exam examinees and with a grand total of 1,489 candidates suspects that the number will reduce to 300 for the Second Phase of the exam. So after contemplating over it, he rules in order to pass the First Phase of the exam; the examinees have to beat 5 other candidates in a fight, collect their respective number plate, and then turn it into him. The Examiner then leaves the room and after he closes the door the exam begins. In another room, the Examiner smokes a cigarette and believes that the First Phase should have only 150-200 people passing and that it'd be great if all exams were like his because you have to be strong in order to be able to work afterward.[1]

Killua Passed

The Examiner passes Killua

Dozing off for half an hour, the Examiner awakens as Killua enters the room. The Examiner scolds himself for dozing off, but congratulates Killua for being the first one to make it to the Second Phase. Looking at his watch he's baffled how much time past and inquires Killua what happened to the other examinees. Killua informs him that they're all unconscious and to prove his claim, he drags into the room a pile of all of the rest of the examinees' number plates. The Examiner, left speechless by this revelation, is then shown by Killua all of the unconscious examinees. So the Examiner contacts the Chairman Netero, who exempts Killua from taking the rest of the exam. So the Examiner, in a funky pose, exclaims to Killua he's passed the Hunter Exam.[1]

13th Hunter Chairman Election arcEdit

After Netero's death, the Examiner votes in the first round of the 13th Hunter Chairman Election at the Hunter Association.[2]
