Gaftz (ガフツ, Gafutsu) was a Chimera Ant Squadron Leader killed by the Extermination Team.[1]


Not much is known about Gaftz's personality, however he has gotten especially cocky since learning Nen.[2]


Chimera Ant arc

Gaftz is briefly mentioned by Peggy when he informs Colt that him and Baital have not returned. It is implied that Gaftz had already been killed by Netero at that time.[1]

Abilities & Powers

Being a Squadron Leader, Gaftz is physically stronger than any average human or, presumably, Chimera Ant soldier. According to his hierarchical position, he has authority over 4-5 officers and several dozen peon soldiers.[2] His body is considerably durable, since a punch from a Nen-using Rammot[3] did not incapacitate him.


After being violently "initiated",[3] Gaftz learned Nen[2] or at least became able to perceive aura (like Morel's transmuted smog).[1]


  • In the Crunchyroll's translation of the 2011 anime adaptation the character's name is "Gafutsu".[4]
