This shonen anime revolves around a young boy, Gon Freecss, who seeks out to become a hunter like his father. A hunter is a professional who has the authority to track down secret treasures, rare beasts, or even other individuals. On this journey to become a renowned hunter like his father, Gon has to overcome many challenges and trials to become one. However, it won’t be hard for him as he makes many comrades on this adventure who help him to overcome those hurdles. Besides the amazing lead cast, the show has many more strong characters. Even Gon’s father is one of the strongest characters in the show. Therefore in this article, we will see who is strongest in the fight, Ging vs Meruem.
Who is Ging Freecss?
Ging Freecss is the father of the anime’s protagonist, Gon Freecss. But apart from being the father of the show’s protagonist, he is also one of the strongest characters in Hunter X Hunter. Ging Freecss is a Double-Star Ruins Hunter and is capable of becoming a Three-Star if he wants. Further, Ging is also a former Zodiac member known as the “Boar”. Even the strongest nen-user in the series, Netero, acknowledged the prowess and talent Ging possesses. He is one of the five strongest nen-user in Hunter X Hunter. Further, he is also the creator of the video game Greed Island. He is also known to possess a genius-level intellect. After Netero’s demise, he was the prime candidate to become the 13th Chairman of Hunters Association. However, Ging Freecss’s full potential is still a mystery.
Who is Meruem?
Meruem is the child of Chimera Ant Queen, and later he himself becomes the King of Chimera Ants. Further, Meruem is the strongest Chimera Ant in existence. He served as the main antagonist of the infamous Chimera Ant arc. Because of being the strongest child of Chimera Ant Queen, he possessed immense strength and stamina. Since his birth, Meruem was a master at using Nen, and he possessed a vast amount of aura. Because of his origin, Meruem was very proud and cruel in nature. Initially, he planned to end humanity and keep only a few but like cattle to feed on. However, he changed after meeting Komugi. Meruem began to acknowledge humanity and wanted humans and Chimera Ants to co-exist but only humans in controlled quantity.
Who will win: Ging vs Meruem?
It would have been an interesting fight to watch if Ging Freecss went up against Meruem. The battle between one of the strongest hunters and the strongest Chimera Ant would never be disappointing. Meruem is the strongest offspring of Chimera Ant and possesses great strength, intellect, and mastery of nen. He even pushed Issac Netero to the edge and even took Netro’s one hand and leg. However, the King of Chimera eventually dies, but the 12th Chairman of Hunter Association had to sacrifice himself.
However, Ging is no less because he passed the Hunter Examination with ease at the early age of twelve. Even Netero, the Charmain of Hunter Association, himself chose Ging to become a Zodiac. Ging is not only a master of nen, but he can do a lot more. Because of his high intellect, Ging can copy others’ Nen techniques if he once decodes the fundamentals of their technique. There is speculation he has copied Netero’s signature move and also the strongest nen technique, 100-Type Guanyin Bodhisattva.
If the two even face each other, then Ging might not stand a chance against Meruem in terms of strength. However, Meruem is like a young baby despite his superior intelligence. Meruem doesn’t know much about the world yet and is learning more about it. Whereas Ging has the experience, he’s been on countless adventures. Therefore, Ging has a lot of strategies to counterattack Meruem. Even Netero said Ging in his prime is far superior to Netero when he was at his prime. Thus, the former Zodiac member has a huge opportunity to grow his strength. It can be said he has the potential to grown even stronger. As we all know, Meruem, the King of Chimera Ant, has already lost his life. Meanwhile, Ging is still alive, and he is still a mystery.
