Cherry (チェリー, Cherī) was examinee #76 in the 287th Hunter Exam and a martial arts expert.[1]


Cherry was a man of average height, had a flat top cut and ponytail, piercing eyes, and a droopy nose. He wore a type of martial arts style clothing and shoes.[1]


Cherry although when put into a serious life-threatening situation like facing Hisoka, had a stoic demeanor and obviously knew when he's outmatched by someone of a higher caliber.[2]


Hunter Exam arcEdit

Tonpa introduces Cherry as a veteran for taking the Hunter Exam and is a martial artist who specializes in unarmed combat.[1] Amid the first phase of the Hunter Exam, he runs next to examinee #255 Todo and notes that so far out of the six hours that have passed only one examinee (#187 Nicholas) has dropped out and must stay on his toes. Before long, he sees a giant stairway at the end of the tunnel and must climb it to the top.[3]

Hisoka confronted by the applicants

Cherry facing Hisoka

During the First Phase of the 287th Hunter Exam, Cherry, Leorio, and Kurapika were the only three left of a group of candidates after Hisoka indiscriminately attacked them to eliminate those he deemed unworthy. Realizing that they had no chance they ran away in 3 different directions.[2] However this didn't help Cherry as later his corpse was seen hanging upside down on a tree with a card stuck in his forehead, implying that Hisoka killed him.[4]

  • In the 2011 anime adaptation, Cherry does not run away with Kurapika and Leorio[6] as in the manga.[2]
