Taragetter (タラゲッテ, Taragette) was a Chimera Ant Peon Soldier that worked under Welfin.[1]


Taragetter was a tall Chimera Ant with a lean build and a similar body structure to other Chimera Ant soldiers. He has darker-colored forewings that reach down to the small of his back. His face was oblong and vaguely boxy, with very large, round eyes at either side of his head and bulbous lips. His bottom lip was connected to the base of his throat through a canula-like apparatus.[1]


Chimera Ant arc

Amidst patrolling the Royal Palace of East Gorteau, Taragetter encounters Knov, whose intention was to infiltrate the palace in order to create portals connecting to the outside for the Chimera Ant Extermination Team. Taragetter's head is immediately removed by Knov's Nen ability Scream, killing him instantly.[1]

Scouring the royal palace to locate a missing woman for Bizeff, Welfin encounters a pool of Taragetter's residue blood along with a muddy pair of shoes. He quickly deduces that the muddy pair of shoes are from the rainstorm they had a week before, which is around the same time Taragetter had disappeared. Contemplating on two likely scenarios, Welfin believes that Taragetter was either killed or abducted by the intruder, though the latter seems unlikely due to him leaving behind his muddy shoes.[2]

Taragetter is indirectly mentioned by Welfin when he lies to Bizeff about an intruder who plans on blowing up the palace.[3]
