The Harbormaster ((しょ)(ちょう)()()()()()()()(), Shochō—lit. "Chief/Captain/Master") is a non-player character (NPC) of the Greed Island game. He determines who is able to leave the island by boat, and sails them to the exit. He can be found on the only port in the game. To get on the boat, one needs a ticket obtained by either bribing him or defeating him in a fight.[1]


The Harbormaster has a stocky build, a prominent rumple nose, long thin eyebrows, slitted eyes, coral-like antlers, pointed ears, three vertical wrinkles on his forehead, prominent arm and chest hair, and short hair. He wears a button-up shirt with a long collar, a flat captain's hat, a wristwatch.[1]


A mercurial NPC, the amount of bribe money he desires can differ from one day to the next.[1]


Greed Island arc

Killua confronts the Harbormaster in order to leave the game to take the 288th Hunter Exam and easily defeats him.[1]

  • In the Crunchyroll's translation of the 2011 anime, the NPC is referred to only as "chief"[2]—in alignment with the way he is called in Japanese.
