Power of the Verse
Meruem is physically the strongest character of the verse. There are a number of characters that have the potential to be a high tier or greater, and many of the creatures on the Dark Continent are a greater threat than Meruem himself.
Almost all characters are Subsonic to Massively Hypersonic.
Powers and abilities are based around Nen, which grants users various passive abilities such as Fear Manipulation, Paralysis Inducement, Death Manipulation, and Madness Manipulation when they inject their aura with malice. Nen also offers many unique skills, ranging from Illumi's Acupuncture, Neferpitou's Body Puppetry, Shaiapouf's Mind Manipulation, Hisoka's Adhesive Manipulation, Chrollo's Power Absorption, Killua's Electricity Manipulation and the list goes on.
There are also several powerful abilities such as Nanika's Wish Granting, Knov's Void Manipulation, Camilla's Resurrection or Tserriednich's Fate Manipulation. However, some of them work only under specific conditions for example Kurapika's Chain Jail working only on Phantom Troupe members.
