Ponzu's messenger bee returns with the message still intact, and Ponzu guesses that the five groups of Hunters in NGL they were communicating with are dead. Pokkle says that they all should leave NGL and tell the world about the threat so that an official team can be formed to exterminate the Chimera Ants. Just as Pekuba speaks up and says that they need to hurry, a Chimera Ant comes out of the ground behind him and decapitates him instantly, leaving the others horrified. Before they suffer any more casualties, Pokkle uses his ability and shoots his Red Arrow through the Ant's head, killing it.
Pokkle yells at Ponzu and Balda to run since more Ants will show up, and a spider-looking Ant is suddenly seen climbing the side of the cliff, terrifying the Hunters with his human-looking face. Pokkle aims and shoots his fastest arrow, the Orange Arrow, but the Ant catches it inches in front of his face, saying that he can easily see it and wondering why the peons can't. He deduces that the life energy surrounding Pokkle's body is the weapon's source and rejoices that he will be a nutritious meal for the Queen. The Ant shoots out a web from his abdomen to catch Pokkle, but he quickly dodges the shot and it hits Balda in the back instead.
The Ant pulls Balda toward him and bites off his head, quickly realizing his mistake of taking food meant for the Queen and saying that Zazan will be angry with him. Now enraged, Pokkle fires another arrow, which the Ant catches as well, but with all four of his arms occupied, Pokkle charges forward and punches him multiple times in the face. As Pokkle aims another arrow at point-blank range, he is suddenly immobilized by Zazan's stinger in the back of his neck, falling unconscious and hitting the ground. Zazan then reprimands the Ant named Pike for his near defeat and tells him that he could have just dropped the corpse to protect himself from Pokkle's attacks. She thinks that Pokkle will be worth a thousand humans to the Queen, praising Pike for his achievement, and the Ant repeatedly thanks her and says that he isn't worthy.
Ponzu is able to escape undetected from the Ants and, knowing that she can't rescue Pokkle alone, writes a message asking for help and gives it to one of her bees. She instructs the bee to deliver it to the Hunter with the most aura it can find. After that, she heads towards the border, thinking that it will be safe there since she can find others. However, she is suddenly shot in the head by a Gun-toting Ant, who then devours her remains as he laughs and says that hunting is so much fun.
After the bee finds Kite's group and gives them the message, Kite tells Gon and Killua that it will be dangerous and asks them if they still want to come. Both quickly say yes, and Kite tells the interpreter that they need to hurry. The interpreter says that the horses can go a little faster, but Kite jumps off his horse and says that it would still be too slow, leaving the woman confused. Kite orders Stick and Podungo to return to the border stop of NGL to meet up with the others and to then contact the Hunter Association to inform them about the seriousness of the threat. Stick understands his orders, and Kite tells Gon and Killua that he will leave them behind if they can't keep up. The three Hunters sprint off into the distance and leave the interpreter and horses in disbelief at their speed, with Kite saying that the combination of NGL and Chimera Ants will become an unprecedented biohazard.
