We’ve all heard of the Phantom Troupe members, but who are they and how do they compare to one another? Here’s a look at the five main characters from the film: Bonolenov Ndongo, Phinks Magcub, Franklin Bordeau, Illumi, and Shalnark. Let’s look at each of them in turn to find out a bit more about them.
The character Bonolenov Ndongo is a member of the Phantom Troupe, a gang of thieves with class A bounties. His name comes from his birth in the Gyudondond tribe, where boys are pierced with needles when they’re young and gradually replace the needles with larger objects. By the time the boys reach adulthood, their bodies have giant holes. The males of the tribe use a whistling sound to make music and dance before battles. During one of the episodes, Bonolenov pierces a Charmia ant officer and creates a crater in his body. As a result, he joins the Phantom Troupe.
His appearance is somewhat uncanny, resembling a mummy. He’s adorned in bandages and boxing gloves. His body is riddled with many holes, but he presents himself as a graceful warrior. He speaks in a formal manner and demonstrates great pride in his tribe. While he doesn’t seem to relish the fights, he is a fierce warrior, displaying his strength and might for his people.
As one of the strongest Phantom Troupe members, Bonolenov is known for his showmanship, strength, and speed. He also uses his Battle Cantabile ability to summon Nen weapons and armor. He can also summon Jupiter, a giant sphere of aura, and his metamorphosen ability. Although his transformation abilities are somewhat lacking, the Metamorphosen ability can still make him a formidable fighter.
The Phantom Troupe is comprised of thirteen members. Each member is a powerful Nen user. They each have a spider tattooed on their bodies. The most powerful member, Chrollo Lucilfer, founded the Phantom Troupe on Meteor City, a junkyard city inhabited by outcasts. Another member of the troupe, Silva Zoldyck, killed No. 8, as part of a clash with Chrollo Lucilfer.
Despite their power, the Phantom Troupe members tend to be treacherous, with hidden agendas. Despite the fact that they are based on iconic horror figures, they are still quite recognizable. Their names include ghosts, mummies, witches, and the evil clown. They wear an inverted cross and often reference the New Testament openly. Interestingly enough, they are among the most popular Phantom Troupe members, and are rated as the second-best group of characters.
Phinks Magcub is a ruthless delinquent and the second strongest member of the Troupe after Uvogin. He specializes in Enhancer techniques and can do astronomical damage. His strength and personality make him a dangerous foe. He is very competitive and is often in conflict with the other members of the Troupe. Despite his brashness, Phinks is very good at working as a team.
A member of the Phantom Troupe, Phinks has a class A bounty. His greatest strength is his physical strength, making him the second strongest member of the troupe. He uses the Ripper Cyclotron to boost his physical power. It is also the second most powerful member of the Phantom Troupe. His immense strength makes him an effective weapon. However, this strength comes at a cost, as his attacks are usually unrelenting.
The other members of the Phantom Troupe are Feitan Portor and Phinks Magcub. Phinks is the founding member of the group, hailing from Meteor City. His physical strength was once second only to Uvogin. The fifth member of the Phantom Troupe is Feitan Portor, whose lack of strength is made up for by his sheer speed. Feitan Portor has a very high speed, making him one of the fastest characters in the franchise.
The Phantom Troupe is a notorious gang that uses Nen to steal. Each member has a tattoo of a spider with a number on their body. The most powerful member is Chrollo Lucilfer, and he established the Phantom Troupe on Meteor City, a junkyard city filled with outcasts. Another founding member of the Phantom Troupe is Feitan, who has a tattoo of a twelve-legged spider.
Another member of the Phantom Troupe is Shalnark. This jovial phantom is responsible and cheerful, but she has darker tendencies. She has a large range of weapons and can use them to kill their enemies. When the Phinks attack the Nostrade compound, she uses a katana carved with runes. The katana pierces Uvogin’s skull by five millimeters.
Franklin Bordeau is a member of the Phantom Troupe, an infamous gang of thieves. Franklin is ranked fourth in physical power and has class A bounties. His Nen ability causes him to expend his aura as bullets, giving him great power and speed. These bullets can kill dozens of enemies in an instant. Franklin is a strong character who enjoys combat. He is not afraid to use Nen techniques, and ranks as one of the strongest in the Troupe.
The Phantom Troupe members have shown themselves to be ruthless and shrewd, with secret agendas. The phantoms are usually modeled after iconic figures from horror and Japanese folklore. In addition, they are often adorned with an inverted cross, and they openly reference the New Testament. Those characters are known to be very powerful, but it is not always clear whether they will be able to overcome the phantoms.
One of the most powerful Phantom Troupe members is Phinks. Phinks is a native of Meteor City. His physical strength was once second only to Uvogin, and he was a master of Enhancer techniques. His phantom-strength was the reason why he was able to defeat Nobunaga, the ultimate foe. The power of Phinks’s Nen technique, however, made him a very dangerous member of the Phantom Troupe.
Uvogin is the third strongest member of the Phantom Troupe. His mark is a #11, indicating that he was born from Meteor City. Uvogin was capable of destroying Four Shadow Beasts. He also possessed a powerful Nen aura that crushed bullets and rocks. He is the most agile of the Phantom Troupe, and has exceptional agility. The only weakness in Uvogin’s fighting style is a weak mental state.
Illumi is a member of the mysterious Phantom Troupe and the brother of the legendary Hunter Killua. She learnt the power of the Nen as a child when she accidentally inserted a needle into her brother’s brain. In order to make her brother run away from battle, Illumi implanted a Nen needle in his brain. This needle has a hypnotic effect on Killua and makes him run away from any victory that is not guaranteed. It also hinders his growth and development.
Despite her long hair, Illumi is an enigmatic character with a dark, eerie aura. Illumi was originally conceived to be creepy, gender-fluid, and a dominant character. This unique design gave the author the freedom to explore a variety of different aspects of her character. She is 24 years old, and was disguised as an examinee of the Hunter Gittarackur.
The Phantom Troupe’s most powerful assassin, Illumi has superhuman strength. As the eldest son of Silva and Kikyo, Illumi is an excellent assassin. His mother, Kikyo, taught him the arts of assassination, and she also trained his brother Killua to be an elite assassin.
He joined the Phantom Troupe after Hisoka asked him to. He has a mission for Illumi: to kill Himoka and get the reward. However, his mission to kill Hisoka is difficult and uncertain. He is unpredictable and relishes the feeling of desire to kill Hisoka. In the end, the Phantom Troupe will be able to stop the phantoms.
The Phantom Troupe also includes the Shalnark. The first member of the Phantom Troupe, Feitan Portor is a bandit and the second most powerful. He is a member of the Phantom Troupe, but does not show it. He usually wears black clothing and skull-head scarf and carries a gun and sword. He appears on the Black Whale along with Franklin and Nobunaga.
The other members of the Phantom Troupe are Kortopi and Feitan Portor. Kortopi is the weakest member of the Phantom Troupe, although his ability to use the Conjurer type earned him praise from Kurapika. He is the second member of the Phantom Troupe, and his physical strength was ranked fifth among all the Phantom Troupe members. When Zazan and Hisoka were defeated, Feitan Portor became the de facto leader of the group until Chrollo was able to return.
