Gorilla (ゴリラ, Gorira) was an ape-like Chimera Ant Soldier in Zazan's division.[1]


Gorilla was a Chimera Ant with an upper torso of a four armed gorilla, and a lower torso of a fiddler crab.


Like most Chimera Ants, Gorilla has a superiority complex over those he deems weaker than him. When faced against Phinks he allows him a single punch without retaliation,[1] which leads to his demise.[2]

Phinx vs Gorilla

Gorilla confronts Phinks

During the Phantom Troupe siege against Zazan's division in Meteor City, Gorilla encounters Phinks. Gorilla mocks him that his punches are flimsy, and allows one free hit on him before he sends Phinks to his death. Pleased by this, Phinks takes up Gorilla's generous offer and claims he'll finish him off with a single punch and that 15 should suffice, perplexing Gorilla.[1]

Phinks rotates his right arm 15 times, creating a massive and powerful aura to emanate from it. Gorilla starts to panic and begs Phinks to stop, but is obliterated by his Nen ability Ripper Cyclotron. Observing Gorilla's remains, Phinks notes that half of his power would have been efficient.[2]

Abilities & Powers

Gorilla's exoskeleton is probably even more durable than that of normal Chimera Ants, as a Nen-enhanced punch from Phinks dealt no damage at all. His four arms allow him to wield multiple weapons.[1]

  • The character's true name was never given in the manga nor in the 2011 anime adaptation, but he has been referred to as ゴリラ型[3] (Gorira-gata, literally "Gorilla type") in the Hunter × Hunter Battle Collection card game.
