Hagya, wandering in the woods in NGL, informs his squadron to find their targets who are nearby. Kite, Gon, and Killua are suddenly surrounded by a large number of Ants. The leader of the group, Frog, immediately confronts the three and gives them three choices: 1, decide the order in which they'll fight, 2, attempt to escape, and 3, by surrendering. The three choose the first one for one on one battles and Kite says that one on one fighting is perfect and the Ants have lost their characteristics of Ants and are becoming more human.

Gon crushes Baro

Gon fights first versus Baro, an armadillo Ant. Before the fight, Gon asks his opponent the conditions to win. Baro says the fight is to the death and Gon asks if they can fight until one of them gives up. Baro becomes impatient and attacks Gon, he evades, but Baro strikes by shifting his course and is able to hit Gon that sends him crashing into a large tree, though Gon quickly recovers.

Baro explains why they're killing humans, not by eating them or feeding on them to the Queen, but because it's fun. This angers Gon, so when Baro starts to attacks, Gon releases a large amount of energy and stops Baro with his bare hands, crushing him and leading to Baro's death. Killua now is up against a huge Ant with horns named Rhino, who calls Baro trash. After analyzing Gon and Killua's abilities, Kite believes they can reach the Queen's nest before she gives birth to the King, though he feels something bad in the air. Peggy wants to do research on Nen to understand it better and learn how to be able to synchronize it with their abilities. Colt, still hurt after Rammot's hit, remembers Zazan telling them about the rare human they caught.

Killua is in control in his fight, but no attacks have any effect on Rhino who is covered by hardened skin. Killua uses his electricity ability, cracking Rhino's chest and instantly kills him, using his hand. Kite is impressed by the two and wonders if he was worried about nothing.
