Ickshonpe Katocha (イックションペ゠カットゥーチャ, Ikkushonpe Kattūcha) is a Single-Star Hacker Hunter.[1]


Ickshonpe is a slim man that wears a wide variety of colored clothing. He's seen wearing blue pants, a purple long sleeve shirt, and yellow gloves. What's presumably a mask, which bears a slight resemblance to a panda bear, is white in the face, has a red dot with a "Pe" inside on the forehead, and has green ears.


Not much is known about Ickshonpe's personality other than he never speaks and has only communicated using written statements. He is uninterested in what happens outside of the net, which he claims not to be his world, displaying a considerable degree of alienation from reality.[1]


He is claimed to be a resident of the "digital world".[1] Based on his number of votes despite expressing no interest in being chairman, it is presumable that he is well-liked in the Hunter Association.


13th Hunter Chairman Election arc

On the first round and second round of the 13th Hunter Chairman Election, Ickshonpe places in 3rd[2][3] and 4th in the third round.[4] Despite personally abstaining from voting, he still finishes 6th in the fourth round, thus becoming one of the sixteen candidates of the fifth round.[5] And in the fifth round, he comes in 5th place making him one of the 8 candidates to go through to the sixth round. On the sixth round, he comes in 8th place with zero votes, but due to the conditions not being met, a new election is held.[6] During the seventh round, he ties with Botobai in 7th place with zero votes and is eliminated from the Chairman race, with only the top four being able to continue.[7]

Ickshonpe gives his statement

At the beginning of the eighth round, he gives a speech stating that he doesn't care about the election as it's not his reality and asks Ging if he would like to trade the "Glorious White Spear" for the "Holy Gold Flag", implying he knows Ging.[8]

Abilities & Powers

Ickshonpe has all the benefits granted by his status as a Hunter.


As a Hunter, he is able to use Nen. It was, however, never shown.


The Spell Card Shop, likely modeled after Ickshonpe's appearance

  • His name is a corruption of "Escape", both a computer key and his behavior towards reality.
  • In Greed Island, the Spell Card Shop in Masadora bears his mask's likeness.[9] The fact that he has a 6 written on his shirt (which corresponds to the letter I in Greed Island) may imply that he is one of the 11 Game Masters of Greed Island.[10]
