Tonpa pays the brothers for taking care of Nicholas

In an introduction given by Tonpa, the Amori Brothers are a trio that specializes in teamwork and are constantly improving on it.[1] Amid the first part of the First Phase of the Hunter Exam, the trio chastise and disparage examinee #187 Nicholas, and are paid by Tonpa for their "good work".[2] During the second part of the First Phase of the exam in the Milsy Wetlands, brothers Amori and Imori notice that a hundred examinees behind them simply vanished and it was due to the local flora and fauna.[3] The brothers, though exhausted and profusely sweating, manage to make it to the Second Phase of the Hunter Exam.[4]

The trio passes the first part of the Second Phase of the exam, however, like nearly all of the other examinees, are confused about what exactly sushi is.[5] At the bottom of the Trick Tower where the Third Phase of the Hunter Exam was held, they witness an examinee immediately die the moment he reached the end. Umori insults the deceased examinee, claiming he should have simply failed and tried again next year. At the end of the Third Phase, the brothers are among the twenty-five (including one deceased) to pass the exam. Outside the tower, the examinees are briefed by the Third Phase examiner Lippo about the Fourth Phase on Zevil Island.[6]

The examinees draw lots and the point system in the Fourth Phase is disclosed by Lippo. On the boat ride to Zevil Island, the examinees are given a brief speech by Khara and upon landing on the island Imori is the first brother to step foot on ground.[7] Imori, stalks Killua to claim his badge. However, Killua easily takes Imori's badge, then overpowers and holds Amori hostage to force Umori to surrender his badge, which is his designated target. After that, he throws the two badges he doesn't need into the forest, failing the trio.[8]
