96 - Pell vs Shalnark

Pell vs. Shalnark

During the Phantom Troupe's siege against Zazan's Squad in Zazan's Palace, Pell encounters Shalnark who futilely tries to manipulate him.[1] He continuously tries to slice Shalnark with his sharp raptorial forelegs and manages to slice his abdomen. Spotting a weak point where he could insert his antenna into with a 20% chance of pulling this off without any injury, Shalnark takes the risk and inserts his antenna into a gap that's exposed between his shell when he opens his body.[2]

Manipulation ability

Pell captures Shalnark

Successful with his retaliation, Shalnark tries to manipulate Pell, however, the Ant ambushes instead restrained him. Perplexed by this turn of events a Chimera Ant named of Boki holding a joystick controller appears and reveals that he was already manipulating Pell.[2] Left with no other alternatives, Shalnark attaches his spare antenna into himself and activates his Nen ability Autopilot mode; obliterating both Pell and Boki in a single charge attack.[3]

Abilities & Powers

Pell's exoskeleton is thicker and harder than any armor, enough to dissuade a physically strong, skilled Nen user like Shalnark from trying to pierce it with his antenna at the first glance. He is also strong enough to keep him immobile after grabbing hold of him. Its arms are very sharp, and their length allows him to strike while preventing the enemy from getting too close. Due to their number, he can strike more times and from more angles than a human.
