Whenever Kurapika's eyes turn scarlet he enters, Emperor Time (絶対時間 Absolute Time), that when activated makes him into a specialist and lets him use any other nen category at the same efficiency as his strongest nen category, however for every second he is within this state he loses an hour for every second past.

Now the question that's worth discussing:
How much time has he lost altogether from using this ability, and since the condition of entering such a state requires him to have scarlet eyes does that mean whenever he carelessly shown his eyes to people he had to pay hours out of his life?
>>
I think the life time cost doesn't apply for previous usings of Emperor Time.

Why do you think that?
It's rather odd to have this boost in power for this long and only be aware of the drawback now.

>How much time has he lost altogether from using this ability
His fight with Uvogin + the times when he used off screen, if he ever did + ~12 hours on the boat.
Scarlet eyes =/= Emperor Time. He can freely turn them red without any repercussions. I don't know if it boosts his fighting skills that way, without emotions, but he doesn't achieve 100% proficiency without Emperor Time. He wouldn't know the exact time if he wasn't the one that put the restriciton.

Consider the following abilities of Kurapika's that require his eyes to go scarlet (to eneter Emperor Time) to use:
Judgment Chain (律する小指の鎖 The Arbiter Little Finger Chain): Kurapika must enter into scarlet in order to use this ability. He sets two conditions onto the target and if they voilate at least one of them, they die.
Dowsing Chain (導く薬指の鎖 The Guiding Ring Finger Chain): Whenever he enters scarlet eyes he can detect when someone is lying, other than that he can use his other abilities using this chain freely without entering Emperor Time.
Stealth Dolphin (人差し指の絶対時間 The Index Finger's Emperor Time): After using his index finger's, Steal Chain, he can use stealth dolphin to analyze and equip the ability. He can then give anyone this stolen ability but they can only use it once before the ability is used up.
Holy Chain (癒す親指の鎖 The Healing Thumb Chain): Whenever he enters scarlet he can heal advanced wounds.

With all of these abilities and the amount of times he used them in the past, this guy must've lost about 20 years already (possibly more behind the scenes.)

>>161559005
I don't think he has an option whether he can turn off or on Emperor's Time when his eyes turn scarlet.
>His fight with Uvogin
Yeah that fight should've taken about 5 minutes and I believe his eyes were scarlet for that entire duration so he at the very least lost 300 hours in that fight alone.

I never seen HxH but I thought Kurapika was a girl?

>>161559298
He once crossdressed as a girl in order to fool some men into coming along with him once.
It's a good read, I recommend it, just don't listen to meme spouting retards.

He lost 15 years of his life because he used emperor time. He probably till that point only used emperor time very briefly or didn't use it at all. It's just that this arc is making him push the limit in order to get what he wants, which in turn makes a more interesting narrative. Let's say he probably lost 20 years at max.

>I don't think he has an option whether he can turn off or on Emperor's Time when his eyes turn scarlet.
So you think his restriction is "when my eyes turn scarlet, I use ET and lose an hour for every second"? It might be possible, but your pic on OP is one instance where it was unnecessary to use, I don't think he would be that careless.
>>
>>161559503
>Let's say he probably lost 20 years at max.
That's what I'm thinking as well.
Sadly his entire kit relies on Emperor's time.
The only abilities that don't are:
Steal Chain: Which is good for disabling and not much else without going into Stealth Dolphin.
Holy Chain: Which can only heal light wounds without going into Emperor's Time.
Dousing Chain: He can just use it as a normal weapon.
Chain Jail: Great ability BUT can only be used on people he believe are phantom troupe.

>He lost 15 years of his life
The fuck are you talking about? in this arc we only saw him lose 5, and this is probably the most he's ever used Emperor Time. In all previous cases he didn't need it for more than a few minutes.

He can barely control his Scarlet eyes as is, since they only activate when he's enraged.
He likely lost control of himself at that moment at didn't think of the consequences.
>>
>>161559553
Remember that Scarlet Eyes are a biologic response to stress too, not just an ET switch.
>>
>>161559675
Reminder that they could activate if he gets aroused.
>>
>>161559628
A minute is worth 60 hours each. He often activates his Scarlet eyes carelessly costing him an hour each time.
Don't forget that abilities that he used in the past rely on scarlet eyes to be activated for example; Judgement Chain. During that whole York incident he possibly lost 5 years.
We also have to consider behind the scenes where he ventured to get the scarlet eyes, do you honestly think he didn't activate his eyes once during that entire time?
20 hours sounds right, 15 hours is bare minimum.

That pissed of dolphin face was the best.

This cross is appearing a lot is that a symbol needed when you want to steal or deactivate someone elses Nen?
>>
>>161561725
No idea, though I figure it's just shows how similar Kurapika is to Chrollo since he loves using crosses.
>>
>>161560245
He looks like a girl.

I thought that lifetime loss only applied for when he steals an ability.

I might've skimmed too fast through that overwhelming amount of dialogue bubbles, but how did he find out about that important limitation in the first place? Doesn't he himself decide on those?
>>
>>161561969
bishonen aren't traps but they can look good in a dress

>>161559789
But doesn't he have to be in Emporers time to Lose hours of his life. Emporers time isn't immediately activated with his eyes correct?

No, it's stated that when his eyes turn scarlet, he becomes a specialist thus activating emperor time.
So yeah every time after I would say he finished training with Izunabi that his eyes turned scarlet he was losing lifespan.

Here's the instance that I refer to.
>>
So.. It's 20 + 5 hours of passing out with his dolphin actived?
>>
>>161558715
Not sure how much he's used it in total, but he's had emperor time on for about 12 hours since he's been on the boat, which is about 5 years of lifespan. What's interesting is that that trading his lifespan for increased ability is quite similar to what Gon did to defeat Pitou, except that he's not using all of his potential/life at once like Gon did.
>>
>>161562962
He past out for nine hours which is three times the amount of time he had emperor time activated giving a total of 12 hours passed.
>>
>>161563285
Well that's the series mechanic for you, High risk, high reward.

This is the ideal male body. You may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like.
