Bendot is bald and has a muscular body. His distinctive features are his scars which are located on his head. He dresses in the standard clothing given to all prisoners in the Trick Tower.[1]


Bendot seems to like fighting, as he is fired up to battle Tonpa,[1] and was disappointed when he did not get a fight. But after seeing Killua kill Johness easily, he refused Killua's challenge, indicating he knows his limits.[2]


Bendot was given 199 years in prison for robbery and murder. Nothing else is known about his past, but Killua deduces that he might be an ex-military.[3]

Bendot with the other prisoners

Bendot is the first one who Gon's team has to fight in the Trick Tower. He is matched against Tonpa. Before they could start, Tonpa gives up immediately in order to sabotage his fellow examinees. Bendot remarks that he is disappointed that he did not get a fight.[1] After Killua kills Johness the Dissector, the assassin asks Bendot to fight him, since he wanted one, but Bendot refuses.[2]

Abilities & Powers

Bendot seems to be a rather strong and ruthless fighter, although he knows he is no match for Killua. He has a very muscled body, which surely contributes to his brawn and endurance. As a result of his military training, he might have acquired some skills in hand-to-hand combat as well as weaponry.
