Maha Zoldyck (マハ゠ゾルディック, Maha Zorudikku)*[1] is the oldest living member of the Zoldyck Family and Zeno's grandfather.


Maha's body has probably deteriorated considerably due to his old age. He stands at 140 centimeters* (about 4 ft 7 in), 10 centimeters shorter than Kalluto.


Almost nothing is known about him. He was later mentioned again by Zeno as having once fought Netero.[2]

Maha makes a brief cameo appearance during Killua's deduction of everyone's relationship with each other in the family. Maha appears to have no relationship of any kind with anyone in his family.[5]

Abilities & Powers

According to Zeno, Maha was incredibly powerful in his youth, to the point that Isaac Netero, once considered the strongest Nen user in the world, received praise for likely stalemating him in a fight: Netero was, in fact, the only person that far to challenge Maha and live to tell the tale.[2] However, said statement could also be taken to simply mean that Maha and Isaac have fought in the past and, prior to the latter's death, were both extremely long-lived. It is unknown if Maha's strength has waned with old age.


Maha is an Enhancer* (🖱️).[1]


  • In the official databook, his name is also spelled as "Mahha Zaoldyeck".[1]
    • His name is not given in the manga nor in any of the anime adaptations, having been revealed in the official databook.[1]
  • In Coco Loo's explanation[3] and according to the 2004 databook,[1] Maha is Zeno's father.[3][1] However, in Chapter 264, it seems as though Yoshihiro Togashi retconned him as being Zeno's grandfather. His age may have been changed as well since the family tree lists him as being the same age as Isaac Netero.[2]
    • It is also possible that Maha and Zigg Zoldyck are the same person and that his name was retconned along with his age and his relations to the rest of the family.
