Mereum is near death so two of the royal guards feed him their own flesh. He is arguably faster than Neferpitou and, even more remarkably, Meruem, as he could launch an attack on Meruem with his 100-Type Guanyin Bodhisattva with the King unable to see the attack coming. Leorio denies it too by saying that Killua is trying to help him. His hostile "Ren" (commonly known as "bloodlust") was so powerful that it made Meruem, who managed to defeat the chairman without suffering much damage himself, experience fear for the first time in his life.

His goal in life was to find a worthy adversary against whom he can fight with his all. [46] In the last part of their duel, with his senses at their absolute sharpest, Netero launched well over a thousand attacks in under a minute:[39] at the very least, this means that he could carry out his praying motion and strike, while also locating Meruem and selecting the best move to counter him with, more than 16 times per second. Isaac Netero Also, If Netero could deal out 1000 blows to the much more power and faster king before he started to feel pain, the slower and weaker Royal Guard gonna have a tougher time fighting back. He sticks two fingers in his chest, thus activating his final attempt for retaliation. When, indeed? He even allowed himself to be swayed and influenced by the enemies actions. [6] In his youth, he was extolled as the most powerful Nen user in the world, and retained dreadful strength even in his old age.[7]. To win the election and thus become the new chairman, one must receive a majority of the votes (50% or higher) with over 95% Hunter participation. Episode Guide [1] He also has superhuman control over his muscles,[39] as well as the ability to enhance his vision by forming a circle with his index finger and thumb and peeking through it, a skill with which Neferpitou, who was a few kilometers away, appeared to be only meters away from him,[9] demonstrating his superior mastery compared to Hisoka. He informs the Zodiacs that there aren't battles that can be physically won or lost in the "new world": only a harsh losing journey against nature. When Pitou reaches them and is asked by the King to heal Komugi, Netero motions Zeno not to intervene and accepts the latter's rebuke, as neither had anticipated Komugi would be there or was prepared for the King's actions.

Isaac Netero appeared to be a helpless old man, but was surprisingly fit and muscular for his age. Hyōri Ittai But does he really understand? I guess Meruem does not have any abilities besides his physical abilities, but holy fuck he’s tough af Absolutely epic and fantastic. He asks for advice on how to proceed, to which Knov responds Netero had already opted for gradually eroding the enemy's numbers with guerrilla tactics when he chose the two of them.

[50] This poison eventually kills not only Meruem,[35] but Shaiapouf, Menthuthuyoupi,[51] and the innocent civilian Komugi,[35] although, unlike the former three, she willingly chose to submit to the poison in exchange for playing Gungi with Meruem in his final hours. The, This is Netero's last resort, meant to be used only when he cannot utilize any other of Guanyin's abilities. His spirit impresses the King, who however declares what happened was inevitable and that Netero will lose his left arm next.
