Who agrees with me when I say that Killua Zoldyck’s characterization is better than HUNTER x HUNTER‘s main protagonist, Gon Freecss? Like Hisoka, I think that Killua’s character is more dynamic and interesting compared to Gon’s. Unlike the honest and straightforward Gon, Killua has undergone a major character development. Not convinced? Well, he goes from this. . .
. . . .to this. . . .
Alright, alright. I know that it’s because he meets Gon and becomes his best friend that he has changed so much, but still. . .when you compare the development of all the characters in the series, I think you’ll agree with me that Killua is second on the list (I give first place to Chimera Ant King Meruem).
Although Killua is only my third favourite character in HxH (1 = Hisoka, 2 = Kurapika), I still choose him as my favourite supporting male anime character because of the significance of his role as Gon’s best friend. He is the anchor that grounds the flighty and careless Gon. Gon makes a mess, Killua cleans it up. He either races forward to sweep the path clear of enemies for Gon, or he follows while protecting Gon’s back.
I would love to have someone like Killua as my best friend, too. I think it would give me an enormous peace of mind to have someone as loyal
and as deadly as him for a friend. I’ll take a rain check on his insane family, though. All the Zoldycks fascinate me as characters, but I’ll be scared senseless if I have to personally meet them.
Killua Zoldyck of HUNTER x HUNTER is my favourite supporting male anime character. Who’s yours?
