Boki (ボキ, Boki) was a beetle-like Chimera Ant Solider working under Zazan.[1]


Boki is a beetle-like Ant with a head similar to that of "Ultraman", a protuberance/ridge in the head similar to a Mohawk hairstyle, square ears, and no nose. Boki has four arms and two legs and holds a joystick. He has been shown sometimes in the manga having a "button" in his chest and skin-wings on his back.


Boki is loyal and cocky as well as observant and doesn't like being patronized when he talks about making someone his "Slave" to work to death for the Queen.[1]


Chimera Ant arc

During the Phantom Troupe's siege on Zazan's Palace, Boki manipulates another Chimera Ant soldier, Pell, into fighting Shalnark.[2] Confident that he won against Pell and is now under his control, Shalnark briefly lowers his guard and Pell restrains him. Boki reveals himself and that he was already manipulating Pell with his joystick controller. Boki then informs Shalnark that he'll put his own personal antenna onto Shalnark, deliver him to the Queen and his job will be complete.[1]

Boki obliterated by Shalnark

After a back and forth conversation on what will happen to Shalnark, when he becomes under Boki's control. Shalnark reveals that he has a second antenna on his person and uses it on himself to activate his Autopilot mode Nen ability. Anxious and overcome with fear, Boki tries to get Pell to remove the antenna from Shalnark's leg, however, Shalnark breaks free from his restriction and obliterates both Pell and Boki in a single strike.[3]

Abilities & Powers

As a Chimera Ant, Boki is already stronger than the average human.[1]


Boki is a Manipulator. After sticking his antenna on his target, he can remotely control it as he pleases through a device that looks like a game joystick.[1] He might be able to control more than one target at once.
