Destruction (破壊, Hakai) is the 278th chapter of the Hunter × Hunter manga, written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi.

Synopsis

Menththuyoupi Rage explosion

Knuckle escaping Youpi's mass of rage

As Youpi screams out in frustration, he shifts his form into one of pure destruction, causing Knuckle to immediately turn and run. Youpi pounds the floor and shakes the tower's entire foundation. Welfin sees it from a distance, and Knuckle quickly escapes the incoming rubble and carries Shoot out of harm's way. He asks Knuckle if he punched Youpi for him, but Knuckle says he has to get him to safety first. But right then, Knuckle hears an ominous sound and looks behind him, seeing an enormous dark mass billowing toward him. Youpi's stress causes him to explode, completely destroying the bottom of the central tower. His body and En swelled from his rage, and the resulting destruction gave him pleasure, but as he returned to his normal size, he felt extreme loss standing in the middle of the rubble.

Making use of his experience, Knuckle realizes that he can take advantage of Youpi's rage and cause him to explode again, hopefully giving him a window to land a hit as well as making Youpi go bankrupt faster from the increased aura use. But even wavering between pleasure and despair, Youpi begins to figure out how to best utilize his selfish ability for the King, understanding that he has to control his rage while not being consumed by it.

Chap 278 - Cheetu dying from an unexpected attack

Cheetu dying from an unexpected attack

Zeno is seen talking to Cheetu, the former saying he's not in the mood for a fight right now. Cheetu asks if he can try out his new Nen ability on him, to which Zeno simply replies with a sigh. Cheetu admits he would rather fight someone else, possibly Morel, and Zeno tells him to go find him. Cheetu says he tried, but the wall of smoke wouldn't let him in, and as he was climbing up to get a better view, he spotted him. Zeno continues to shrug him off, feeling guilt at having possibly killed an innocent for the first time since being in charge of the Zoldyck Family.

But Cheetu only continues to brag about his ability, with Zeno realizing he won't be able to make him go away. He warns Cheetu to watch his back, which Cheetu playfully dismisses. He begins to cite the advice of Morel of not taking one's eyes off the enemy, but he's interrupted when an enormous explosion lands right on top of him. Silva is seen on top of Cheetu's corpse, his right fist having crushed his head in. Silva asks his father if he should have spared him, and Zeno says he didn't particularly mind. Aboard their dragon, Silva asks him about Killua, and Zeno says he's grown up and believes he's removed Illumi's needle. He tells him about his experience with time feeling condensed, and Silva remembers that his father is prone to embellish his stories.
