Could the entire phantom troupe beat meruems royal guard?
>>
>>135567554
Hisoka could have done it by itself
>>
>>135567554
Yes, because nen isn't about raw power. The ryodan have a lot more experience fighting as a squad and against nen then the royal guards. I doubt they'd all survive though, at least 2 or 3 would die.
>>
easily
>>
>>135567554
lol no.
>>
>>135567554
All 3 vs. all 13?
No, Royal Guard have too much raw power, and we saw the Troupe fight low ranking ants in Meteor City. Not that any of them had a chance of losing, but it's not like they won easily either, and even Feitan was forced to use his ultimate attack. The Royal Guard are many magnitudes higher in power than any other Ant aside from Meruem, and I don't think the inclusion of Chrollo would be able to tip the scales in the Spiders' favour enough.
>>
we haven't even seen the whole power of the phantom trouple so absolutely yes. Only Chrollo could do it.
>>
Phantom troupe gets it up the ass.
>>
It would be very painful.

3 vs 13, they'd make short work of the Royal Guard, given the starting position is the same as it was for Gon & co. Youpi doesn't yet know how to use his ability, Pitou is occupied healing Komugi.
That leaves Pouf who isn't much of a combatant. If you were to just pit them together at full power, Troupe would still win, just with some losses.
>>
>>135568583
Bullshit, Pouf alone can defeat the whole of this troupe.

laughing out loud.

Youpi can solo the entirety of the spiders (not accounting for Quwrof's unknown variability). Pitou with Terpsichora could likely do the same or come close.

There was nothing they could've done even if they accounted for it.
Razor was the game master of Greed Island, his rules.

Yeah OK. The same cloth that was used on a car full of Troupe members where 4 of them escaped without even having any nen preparation before hand.

On a Final Destination type scenario, he would never be able to catch Pitou with that.

The cloth had to absorb the car first. Obviously it would be a lot quicker if it made direct contact. That's why Chrollo even bothered to take it out against the Zoldycks.

No, he took it out because it was a strange, menacing looking ability they didn't know anything about. The whole purpose of using that skill was stalling for time by preying on their uncertainty, something Zeno didn't buy for a second and immediately dived to attack anyway.
>>
>>135572554
He very, very explicitly took it out in hopes of capturing them so he could steal their abilities.
>>
>>135567554
With hisoka and chrollo? There's a chance, likely only those two would survive. Without? Slaughterstomp. Royal guard are on some next level power.

Never stated, not even once. Zeno specifically says Chrollo is just stalling for time instead.

100 headcanon%, zeno says clearly that he's just buying time, which is why the fun-fun cloth is removed once Chrollo sees the tactic is not working.

No.

Also I hope you realize Chrollo's conditions for stealing abilities means that he would need to incapacitate the Zoldycks, hence the fun-fun cloth after the poisoned knife failed. "Stalling for time to steal their abilities" makes absolutely zero sense, because he wouldn't be able to steal their nen if he was just stalling while they were shooting stuff at him.

>>135572947
>>
>>135573005
Lol why did you even bother circling that line of text? This >>135572947 is Chrollo's plan, as clearly stated.
You're not bullshitting your way out anon.
>>
>>135573044
That's the page that's in between the segments you cropped, the page you conveniently left out, and the page that is what Chrollo is referring to when he says Zeno read his mind. You are grasping at straws now.

Can you even explain what he was supposed to be stalling for?
>>
>>135573005
>"stalling for time to steal their abilities" makes absolutely zero sense
Did you even read the manga? The guy has to surpass 4-5 conditions before being able to steal an ability, stalling for time is fundamental to manage to clear them all out without dying. Keeping the enemy at bay with the threat of the fun-fun cloth is a legitimate tactic, too bad Zeno saw through it with ease hence why he removed the cloth immediately afterwards.

I'm not gonna bother anymore as I can see the denial ramping up by the post, this is how it is as stated by the manga itself, deal with it.
>>
>>135573103
Thanks for confirming you don't know Chrollo's nen stealing conditions, anime-onlyfag. If you did you'd understand that stalling is counterproductive to him in regards to stealing nen. Makes sense that you can't see why fun-fun cloth would be useful for stealing nen.

The zoldyck's arent Owl, he had zero chance to "incapacitate" them both with that clearly fishy ability anyone would want to stay away from, as Zeno literally says.
Which is what he intended, as his plan was to keep Zeno away from him.
Zeno sees through this and attacks anyway.
Chrollo dispels the now completely useless fun cloth.

That's how it went, sorry your interpretation was flawed but the manga is pretty clear about how it played out.

It is, HxH really is wasted when people can't see behind nifty little mental tricks like the one Kuroro used.
>>
>>135573513
A million times this.
>>
>>135573416
His plan was to capture them alive and steal their abilities. He doesn't say to himself "aw now I can't stall for time" or "aw my time stalling plan failed", he explicitly says "aw now I can't catch them alive", and later "aw didn't get to steal their abilities".

I mean there's so much dialogue which explicitly mentions nen stealing and incapacitating yet you choose to go on one single line which you don't even understand the context of.

>>135573513
There was no trick, he took out the cloth and waited for an opportunity to capture the Zoldycks. That's what the word "stall" was referring to. See >>135573005
>he's searching for perfect timing
>he wants to approach me

If Chrollo was truly stalling for Illumi or whatever he wouldn't be advancing and trying to counter-attack.

Whatever son, can't fight against headcanon.
This isn't Naruto, people preparing a skill doesn't necessarly mean that's what he intends to use to win.
HxH is different, more subtle, and better than that.

Sadly some people will take everything at face value.
>>
>>135573665
Except everything was spelled out as clear as day in this specific scene.

If Chrollo was just stalling for Illumi so the fight would be cancelled, why did he sulk about not being able to steal their abilities afterward? Surely if he wanted to steal their abilities he would be working on it without wasting time considering he knew Illumi would be calling in to cancel it at some point, so he would have to meet that unknown deadline.

You're the one spewing headcanon, and it's ironic you're saying I'm taking things at face value when you're the one taking a single word at face value, ignoring the context which I already explained. But hey if you want to keep pretending you're such an intelligent patrician of subtle arts then go ahead, just take it back to reddit.
>>
>>135573786
>why did he sulk about not being able to steal their abilities afterward?
Because he couldn't manage to steal them, duh. He tried to but only managed to come out alive, no net gain, only a draw, hence the sulking.

Seriously I can't believe I have to explain this.
>>
>>135573786
1. He is at a disadvantage
2. He wants to steal stuff
3. He needs to meet conditions to steal stuff
Ergo: He stalls to setup the conditions
But: The enemy saw trough him, so he had to actually fight back instead of setting up a steal
>>
>>135573884
The point is he wouldn't be sulking if he didn't try, and his attempt was the fun-fun cloth.

>>135573891
The conditions cannot be while fighting. This is why he carries a poisoned knife, which Zeno comments on explaining exactly this, which Chrollo admits as Zeno knowing his shit, and is why Chrollo moves onto plan B which is the fun-fun cloth to incapacitate them since poison doesn't work. Even if you don't know what the conditions are this much is obvious and shown in the anime.
>>
>>135573992
cannot be met*
>>
>>135573891
This, again. The Phantom Troupe is a band of thieves, and Chrollo failed at stealing.
He sulks because he wanted to not only come out alive but also gain a nifty ability or two, but the enemy was too competent, saw through him and made him "fail" as a thief.
The only thing he got out of the whole fight was a beating and that's not exactly a thing to celebrate.

Yes to the first, no to the second.

You really think seasoned assassins like the Zoldycks would explain their nen to their opponent, especially one who they know needs to fulfill conditions to be able to steal nen? The palm bit is also close to impossible.

>>135574198
>in other words, you won't be able to steal our forces, when fighting us
Are you just being stupid on purpose now that you've been BTFO? Zeno also has no idea what the conditions actually are so he's just making assumptions, but Chrollo himself knows it's impossible to fulfill his conditions in a 2v1 against the Zoldycks. That's why he goes for his next best method of incapacitation after his poison knife failed, which is the cloth. I like how you completely ignored that point by the way.

So what's >>135573005 then? Zeno clearly says that Chrollo is trying to advance on him and land a 'counter-attack'. You're saying that Chrollo, if he did manage to close the gap, would retract his cloth and attack with something else? Rather than headcanon this is just plain delusion born from a stubborn unwillingness to concede an argument. Stay retarded.
>>
>>135574774
I don't see how anyone from the phantom troupe could beat a royal guard tho,even all of them together.Chrollo is the only one capable of possessing an ability that would make a difference.Or not.
>>
>>135574874
Except you're still posting now. So you clearly can be bothered, but instead of arguments using sourced evidence you choose to settle for petty insults. You've lost, but your ego won't allow you to quit without throwing in some 'last words'. But don't worry, I'll humor you. Go ahead and give your final insult, I won't reply back.

Unknown, but author stated through Zeno's words that the point of the cloth was keep him at a distance and prevent all-out melee attacks. The strategy failed but the purpose remains.

Thats also why Nen is about RAW Power.
To injure your opponent, you need to be able to hit them first. If you can't hit them, or get past their guard, you can't do anything.

Nen would suck if you couldn't stack it

Now this is headcanon. I don't know how you got that from 'stalling to find the perfect opportunity'. Zeno explicitly says that Chrollo is trying to close the gap, and Chrollo confirms this was the case, therefore the only conclusion is that Chrollo whipped out the cloth to capture Zeno, because there'd be no other reason for him to be advancing with it in hand. If he wanted to keep Zeno at a distance he wouldn't be trying to close the distance, obviously.
>>
you guys are using the Royal guards against people who weren't at there level

And you have to keep in mind even though they outclassed everyone there they still lost because they are terrible at tactics.

Ryodan is wayyyyyyyy stronger than the assault team that went there to face the royal guards. Not sure why you guys think they would lose. They have had much more time to work with each other as well. The ants would get stomped with a serious ryodan.

Unless you guys think the royal guard stomps the zodiacs as well
>>
>>135575028
You forgot the extra comdition
>a new chapter of berserk must be released within the ladt 24 hours
This truly is a sure kill attack
>>
>>135575028
You don't have to injure them though. There are combat abilities which don't rely on force, such as chain jail, fun-fun cloth and Shalnark's manipulation thing, all of which bypass guarding/defense. If anything, raw speed is what really matters, so you can dodge both the physical powerlevel guys as well as the bad status effect abilities. If Cheetu, as weak as he was, had something like fun-fun cloth he'd annihilate the entire extermination squad, though maybe not Netero.
>>
>>135575096
It's in the story, duh. Chrollo takes out the cloth to make Zeno hold back a little, he sees through immediately and launches a barrage of dragon dives at him. I don't know where you're getting this adamant security that "the only conclusion" is yours, sounds like a load of bull if you also consider that he had just acquired the skill himself.

The fun cloth is a flashy, mysterious and dangerous-looking unknown ability meant to get Zeno off his ass not his main form of attack for the fight (which is why he ditches it as soon as Zeno doesn't buy the trick).

Now I'm really getting tired of this, so enough.
>>
>>135574928
Of course.
>>
>>135575158
>Ryodan is wayyyyyyyy stronger than the assault team that went there to face the royal guards.
The assault team barely survived though. They didn't pose a real threat other than working as a distraction for Netero to sweep in, neither Youpi nor Pitou nor Pouf ever were in life danger against it.
>>
>>135575304
So out of all the abilities in his book, he chooses the one that could help him greatly in his bid to steal their nen not to actually steal their nen but to just serve as a confusion tactic. This being right after Zeno publicly deduces that Chrollo needs to incapacitate them if he wants to steal their nen after his poison knife failed to do so. And although he needs to be at melee range to use it, that is not on his mind at all while he is trying to close the gap, despite actually not wanting to be close in the first place because obviously he took it out to make them back off.

You're delusional.
>>
>>135575365
But they survived nonetheless. Pouf struggled with one person.

Youpi couldn't do anything to thor killua.

The entire ryodan together would have a field day with the Ants. They were just like super strong Cheetus. They completely lacked any sort of battle awareness.
>>
>>135575365
To be fair,knucle could beat youpi if he decided to sacrifice morel.
And knov could make a huge difference with his ability if he wasn't a gigantic pussy.
>>
>>135575484
Dude, Feitan's one of the stronger Ryodan members and he struggled with that half-baked renegade Queen of theirs.
Any member of the Royal guard would have mopped the floor with them.

>I know all the abilities in his book

Indeed.

>>135575594
Actually, it was said that Feitan was rusted and he could win quite easily. Also, he won by overkilling it.
>>
>>135575664
>>I know better than Togashi
That's what you're saying though. All the dialogue explicitly supports my argument, whereas you're taking one line out of context to support yours.

Can you even reason why he didn't summon two indoor fish instead to guard him if he wanted them to back off?
>>
>>135575773
>Why didn't X do Y

In other news, none of the characters in HxH need to eat, drink or breathe to survive, and you only didn't know because Togashi was too 'nub' to mention it. But me with my mastery of the subtle arts saw through this, the objective proof being that we've never seen Chrollo feel hungry. This is also proof that he's immortal by the way.

Going to go with of course


Not even counting broken shit like getting killua asking alluka to kill them all.

Zenos should be able to deal with Pitou.
Silva and Illumi shouldn't be far off from him as well.

Everyone else is just extra support. They would be far better for the job than the assault team was.

The main problem was meruem. The royal guard would have been dealt with so easily if it werent for him. He was the backbone of the entire ant race.
>>
>>135575594

struggled? she broke his arm and then he said nope and burnt her the fuck up, a broken arm is minimal damage compared to other fights
>>
>>135576784
Togashi really likes breaking or ripping off his characters arms for some reason.
>>
>>135576784
She broke his arm and threatened his life, at which point Feitan's Pain Packer (which gets boosted by how much damage Feitan gets) destroyed her, a middle-level ant who didn't know nen.
Against people like Pitou or Meruem the ryodan would get butt devastated, Pain Packer can't do much for you when your opponent is faster and can oneshot you.

The Troupe really are nothing special. The only threat is Chrollo's unknown possible hax. RG together would shit on them.

The thing about Nen fights is there's no absolutes, it's all about good and bad matches plus the mental state of the ones fighting, Bisky herself said this.

With this in mind, there isn't a single good matchup for a Troupe member in the RG, they'd all be slaughtered like dogs.
>>
>>135567554

Nah... some Ryodan members aren´t even fighters, they are thieves. Shisoukou is weaker than Gon, Uvo was defeated by Kurapika, Paku is dead, Nobunaga is weaker than Uvo, Kortopi is not a fighter, Machi is more on the healing and tracking department... I doubt Franklin bullets would do against mid level ants, Hisoka is no longer a spider, Chrollo is nenless.

So that leaves what? Feitan and Shalnak? i don´t see them killing none of the imperial guards.

>>135574232
They didn't know Meruem would literally become Cell.
They didn't foresee the Ants gaining Nen and becoming stronger than everyone else.
Intelligent human-sized ants bent on procreation is more than enough trouble.
Even Gon and Killua could JUST the ants' shit up before they gained Nen.

there are lots of people that could fight of the royal guard. Smoke and Portal were used cause the side mission they needed to do. not for their raw fighting powers

>>135582583
It was a small third world nuke and the blast would have killed him if it wasn't for Pouf and Meruem.

Since Chrollo has random fucking powers, this is a stupid question that comes down to who Togashi wants to win. If you leave him out, probably not.

And Youpi i mean.
>>
>>135582649

The point is anons, he still survived the bomb. He was in just enough good condition, strong enough that his guards could rescue him. No one else in the Hunterverse could do that.
>>
>>135582697
I'm not saying he isn't strong in the HxH universe, he's just not strong in the grand scheme of things. Even in the HxH universe he wasn't that much of a threat in the end.
