Window to the void:Scream
Would've worked nicely if Knov wasn't such a pussy.
True all you'd need to do is remove his head and wait for his body to die while escaping
duh, meruem can sense the god's accomplice
Wait was that ever stated? I don't remember the manga ever even hinting at God's accomplice being flawed beyond someone knowing what it is and using a large scale attack to kill everything around him
>Knov is a massive pussy
>good luck holding your breath until you find the king
Problem with that is: You only have 10 seconds to find the King and kill him, because when Meleoron runs out of breath all three Royal Guards will jump on his ass.
Also, Knov was mind broken already.
Or you know you can just nuke him.
Ignore him, he's talking out of his ass.
Meleorun can hold his breath for 2 minutes. At least 1, if Knov and him are spooked
meruem pulls a "buu" and screams his way out
When they first started the invasion he could hold it for less than 30 seconds. He tapped Knuckle before the 20 second mark.
Post nuke Meruem could possibly sense it.
He couldn't. He probably wouldn't be affected by Knov's ability though.
Yeah, I keep telling this to everyone. They're bad a making plans. I wonder if Knov would have the balls to do it though.
They needed a plan that could work no matter what. That's what they did, they had no way of knowing how long it'd take to get to the King, and there's the Royal Guards in the castle too.
If Meleoron got killed while he was invisible, or Knov did, maybe they couldn't even get to the king before he needed to breathe, then what would they do? Their whole plan would crumble.
Their plan was the best they could do with what they had.
>They needed a plan that could work no matter what
What if the Royal Guard were so strong that everyone got instakilled?
The only objective of the mission was to separate the King from the Royal Guards to have Netero stand a chance against him. If the Royal Guards were with him, Zeno was there to help separate them.
In the worst case, Netero had the rose. They were all prepared to die.
he got broken by pofu's nen.. not even pitou, fucking trany pofu's nen
>In the worst case, Netero had the rose. They were all prepared to die.
Yeah, I guess he could blow up the whole palace, with the Royal Guard and the King. But again, I don't remember, was the Rose set to detonate automatically if Netero dies? Because if it didn't and they got instakilled, then plan would have failed.
Whenever Netero's heart stopped it would activate. Netero pierced his heart in the end when he was sure he couldn't beat Meruem.
The three guards' nen is about the same.
Yes, it goes off the moment Netero's heart stops beating.
not in terms of power, but the feeling they transmit
Yeah, okay. But I'm sure there was a way to make a plan including OP's technique. Something like Knov and Meleoron waiting in Knov's room with a way to communicate with the other members of the team, and as soon as one gets to the King, he gives his position to everyone else.
>Zeno was there to help separate them.
not even that, Zeno was there just to use dragon dive for distraction and dragons head for transport,
aside of that, separate em was all for the raid team
Well, all we know is that Pufu's nen is terrifying to the point of being able to break Knov's mind. He never saw Pitou's.
Just nuke with some Tsar bomb.
Togashi realized that too. That's why he took Knov out of the fight.
No. He was precisely hired to help the team separate Netero and the King from everyone else. That's why he leaves as soon as the King proposes to go to somewhere far.
This whole arc was retarded
The King was far too strong
Well in all fairness, of course they could have found a way to insta kill Meruem with it, I guess that's the reason Togashi decided to mindbreak him and take him out of the story.
>the king is nen sponge
what did you expected?
The distance between Knov's checkpoints and the rest of the castle were long. And even then, Knov had surrendered. He was in no position to go running towards the king even if he knew where he was. And how would they even tell him? The ants would know where the checkpoints were and they wouldn't lower their guards at all.
Read the manga.
Yeah, I guess so.
Meruem isn't invincible.
Either Poison or Radiation call kill him.
Also, someone with a Nen ability that produces deadly bacteria or viruses could likely kill Meruem as well.
Not only that but high heat can kill Meruem as well.
Someone who can raise temperatures as high as the Sun can kill Meruem.
>Read the manga.
who are you taking me for kid?
Well, read it again then. Zeno was hired specifically to help Netero get the King faraway from the guards.
>Either Poison or Radiation call kill him.
>Also, someone with a Nen ability that produces deadly bacteria or viruses could likely kill Meruem as well.
>Not only that but high heat can kill Meruem as well.
>Someone who can raise temperatures as high as the Sun can kill Meruem.
to bad 99% of those will die before being able to use nen
Netero was able to weaker him with Zero, and stunned him with his name and that last dead aura before going full Nuke
under other circumstances, anyone getting close to meruem will die,
Feitan will be too dead to even use Pain Packer
I'm talking about the original plan. They made it before Knov got mindbreak and didn't manage to put all the checkpoints.
>And how would they even tell him? The ants would know where the checkpoints were
Using codes when talking isn't that hard.
Removing his head wouldn't kill him. We never saw the extents of his power, they didn't have any means of knowing what the king's ability was. All they knew was that the guards were beasts much stronger than a lot of pro hunters.
thats why I said distraction with Dragon Dive and then Dragon head, after that, it was raid team work to keep guard busy
I wonder how big Hisokas boner would have been had he seen the king post nuke
He is in his room. How would they even talk to him, that's what I meant. Also read >>102155090
to bad he spent the whole fucking ark playing tag with kuroro
something is sure, he was not Cell, as pitou had to sew back his arm
No it wasn't. Zeno did use Dragon's Dive and Dragon Head, but he was supposed to help Netero separate them. The raid team would stall the guards in the castle, and Zeno would help Netero fight Meruem away of the castle.
>to bad 99% of those will die before being able to use nen
>Implying bacteria and viruses don't move fast as fuck especially if you combine it with a sneeze.
We still don't know his nen ability. Even being a head he could still be stronger than everyone as far as they knew.
With radios or whatever? Or they don't even have to stay in the room, they can just wait outside somewhere, then get to the room and to the designated portal when called.
>Removing his head wouldn't kill him.
What hints that? Every ant we encountered before that maybe excepted Youpi would have been killed by that. Yeah, he's incredibly strong, but he's not Cell.
>>Implying bacteria and viruses don't move fast as fuck especially if you combine it with a sneeze.
yeah I forget you can sneez 3 KM
anyone that gets within meruem range and pose a kill attitude will be dead before using nen
>Implying I can't give the Ant King cancer just by being in the same vicinity
>Even being a head he could still be stronger than everyone as far as they knew.
The whole point is that he doesn't have his head anymore. It goes in the unknown dimension Knov makes a portal to.
I think they said that his nen was to absorbe other beings Nen potential and add it to his own, when he ate that bodyguard
>Removing his head wouldn't kill him.
You sure love pulling shit out of your ass, anon.
>Mereum is now isolated
>Nuke him from there
His ability is to absorb other being's aura (and abilities), that's it.
If it were a nen ability, the king would win. He is far above anything human.
I don't know why they didn't use radios, but the rest of my point still stands.
And they didn't have proof about anything regarding the king's power, they couldn't let their guards down in any aspect, or their plan would fail.
More like he doesn't have his body. Hell, he could even control both, with En he could not even need it.
They didn't know that, and it's not like he couldn't have more, he is the fucking king.
A nuclear explosion didn't.
we dont know how sturdy room is
If he paired up with Meleoron, give the time he can hold his breath for, would he be able to one shot the King?
He absorbs nen when he eats. It's like you weren't paying any attention to the entire arc.
You're trying to argue that Knov would stop at removing the Ant King's head once he removed his head successfully.
Since Knov is a guy who takes no chances and is very risk-averse, Knov would then proceed to remove the Ant King's legs and arms next and then proceed to the King's heart and organs all contained and isolated in their own separate dimension because Knov is careful like that.
depends.. 10K spins maybe
Except he was in the verge of dying. Pouf and Yupi had to asspull him back alive with nen.
It doesn't need to be sturdy.
How would you know that?
I mean fighting ability. He could have more abilities.
How do you know he'd be deafeated at that. And as soon as his head is off, Meleoron and Knov are probably dead. The king is faster than them.
>He is far above anything human.
Ant King still requires surgery to reattach his arm and he also died from a manmade weapon.
Something beyond human would be unable to be killed by a human weapon yet the king died due to Human Science.
I want to know more about his ability, does it have a hard cap? Diminishing returns? How long are spins stored? Could be really dangerous.
How do you know Gon can't use bungee gum?
>More like he doesn't have his body. Hell, he could even control both, with En he could not even need it.
What? They're in different dimensions. How the fuck would he do that?
Knov was completely taken out of the fight before it even began.
Human as a species. Not civilization. Man made can kill him, but Nen or physical abilities can't.
cause using transmutation is hard as fuck unless is something to general (like edge) or something you are used to it as fuck
hisoka being poor and eating bubble gum and killua electric training
Because we see the story through his eyes. And still, the invasion team didn't know his ability, which was my point.
His body is still in the real world, that's all he needs for all we know. He could not need his eyes to see, if he used En.
A nuke actually did kill Meruem and he was dying before temporarily restored by his guard's asspulling but the nuke's poison was not erased and was still active inside Meruem's body so no matter how you spin it, Meruemfag, Meruem remained in dying condition even after getting a new body.
So Meruem didn't survive a nuke at all as you claim because at no point was the nuke's poison not constantly being active and killing Meruem's insides.
Hatsu is something you make up entirely unless you're a special snowflake like Neon or Alluka. He COULD have infinite abilities if he willed it, but he doesn't in canon because he never showed any signs of having any.
>And still, the invasion team didn't know his ability, which was my point.
Why the fuck would this matter? Why did they nuke him in the first place? You think they were certain nukes can kill him? What if his hatsu is to specifically counter nukes? How did they know it wasn't?
>What if his hatsu is to specifically counter nukes?
I always thought that Knov's ability had a restriction, because it was never fully explained. Maybe the target must have less aura or something like that, otherwise Knov would be OP as fuck
I said explosion for a reason. The nuke killed him because of the radiation, not the explosion. And even if it left him very damaged, he got better just eating.
not even that, what killed him was the poison
You can just block things like sneezes with nen.
They don't know it's not, son. It could be one of his many unseen abilities like surviving decapitation and controlling body parts stuck in another dimension.
by the time you inhale to sneeze, you are dead
If it was nen created the king can survive it.
Nen-HEPA filter mask.
This is worst than Naruto.
Netero could probably set up a better team for the ants if he had more time and knew about Royal Guard's nen proficiency. The arc would've been a lot smoother and with less casualties, but the only one who could've given this valuable information to the Hunter Association (Kaito) fucked up and died.
Why Kaito, why did you have to touch your nen penis with Pitou's nen vagoo like that.
all guards are strong as fuck, but they had their short comings
yupi, had not jack shit idea what an strategy is
pofu was more bussi screaming king than fighting
and pitou was killed by broken gon which was not fair
