Small Bear (コグマ, Koguma) is a Chimera Ant and former Squadron Leader.[1]



Small bear's anime full body appearance

Small Bear is one of the first human-esque Chimera Ants to be born. He has the appearance of a panda with baggy clothes and a cross necklace.[1]


Small Bear is one among the few out of all Squadron Leaders and other soldier Ants to be genuinely concerned about the Chimera Ant Queen's well-being and is willing to stay with his dying Queen till the end. He is also shown to move rather quickly, as he displayed a very minimal amount of grief upon the Queen's death, and was able to answer the Hunters' inquiries clearly even as the Queen had just passed away.[2]

Small Bear and the other Squadron Leaders are summoned by the Queen. He goes to the Queen along with Bihorn and Bloster who complain about her voice gives them headaches and Small Bear wishes the Queen could talk like they could. The Queen announces she will focus solely on giving birth to the King and orders the Squadron Leaders to bring her 50 humans a day. They obtain their permission to choose names for themselves.[1] With Netero, Morel Mackernasey, and Knov hunting the Chimera Ants surrounding the Nest, it was revealed that Small Bear is one of the fourteen Squadron Leaders to be left alive.[3]

The aftermath of Meruem's premature birth that left the Queen in critical condition, his brief display of cruelty, and killing devouring both Turtle and Peggy leaves Small Bear and the other Chimera Ants shocked and horrified. Hagya takes advantage of the situation and claims that all of Chimera Ants should go independent and create their own kingdoms since the Queen is going to die and the King has left. Small Bear and especially Bihorn disagree with the proposal, but they're outnumbered by the ones who agree with Hagya.[4]

Small Bear is one of the Chimera Ants present to witness the Queen die, after the Hunter Association agreed to help them after Colt surrenders to them.[2]
