Might be Hanzo in my opinion since he trains Ninjutsu since he was a baby.
Maybe we should wait until we learn more about Hanzo's abilities...
This. I reckon, by now, they should be on a similar level though, even if Hanzo's growth was considerably slower than Killua's. It's been one year since the Election's Arc after all.
I think Hanzo learned Nen at the same rate as Kurapika. Chapter 60: "Hanzo and Kurapika have learned Nen already, under other teachers."
According to Killua's draft, Hanzo is not that far off from Hisoka even without nen.
Unless I'm misremembering what Killua drew.
It wasn't an entirely accurate depiction of things, Killua was admittedly embellishing for Gon's benefit.
Kurapika had his limitation and his special ancestry though, and therefore a mastery of nen that wasn't normal at all for his level and it was noted clearly in the manga. It would be surprising if Hanzo developed as quickly as Kurapika.
Also it depends on what one means by "learn nen". Does it mean just ren, ten, zetsu and hatsu? Because that can be done kinda quickly but would be far from mastery.
I'd rather use Killua as a measure: according to Killua, they were on a similar level before the training, but Killua has his "golden boy" status, so I reckon he'd grow faster. However, he and Gon lost quite a bit of time due to Wing punishing them for disobedience.
Yeah, Killua also thought he was about as strong as Hanzo. We know how a Hisoka vs. Killua would go at that point, and it wouldn't be close.
So no, I don't think Killua was judging Hisoka's actual power accurately. Probably because, at that point in time, he didn't know nen.
I think Wing was referring to the 4 basic principles of Nen, Ten, Zetsu, Ren, and Hatsu, when he stated that Kurapika and Hanzo had already learned Nen.
It shows that Hanzo learned the basics of Nen at around the same rate as Kurapika, which means that he's very talented. I imagine that Gon and Killua would've learned as quickly as them if their training wasn't interrupted.
Knuckle just a hunch
Hanzo all the way. Comparing both of their fights vs Gon. Hanzo owned Gon while Knuckle almost lost to Gon. Even though Knuckle has over 5000 fights, he's doesnt seem that smart b/c he got knocked out by Gon's Rock and again vs Gon he almost lost to Gon's 1-2 combo of Paper and Rock (but Gon ran out of aura so his k.o rock did not connect). I think Hanzo's smarter and with his ninja training, his fighting style is superior to Knuckle's brawling and running skills.
But those are different scenarios. Hanzo vs Gon was normal fight without Nen while Knuckle's was a fight using Nen.
Yeah true but all three hunters fight with basic attacks (punches and kicks). Their hatsus are pretty basic, not like some exotic hatsus like shoot's or kite's.
Indeed, but I think a nen fight still makes it harder for Knuckle, while Hanzo easily overpowers Gon in strength/speed.
Knuckle easily, Knuckle is a super elite hunter, the like of Morel is at least mid zodiac leveled.
Judging without Nen, Hanzo seems has more strength but Knuckle is faster.
Knuckle's brawling ability seems like a Mix of Boxing (the punches), Karate (the kicks and the way he defences himself) and a bit of Tae Kwon Do (the kicks again). Those are good enough Martial Art combinations and it work in real life (Boxing and Karate) that makes Knuckle a good Brawler. Feel free to correct me if Knuckle's martial-art has a specific style or different elements of MMA.
Hanzo is a Ninja. Already a Jonin at the age of 18 in fact. Ninjas are trained to deal with vital points and assasinate.
Knuckle is a more experience Hunter (my guess he has been a Hunter for 3-5 years) and he's definitely older than Hanzo.
In the end, I'd go with Hanzo.
I think Knuckle is just a street fighter.
Yeah I agree. When he fought Gon, he almost lost to a simple Paper + Rock combo. Im kinda surprised what stuff Morel taught Knuckle and Shoot b/c they are a lot more emotional compared to Morel.
This is the only correct answer
Killua didn't even know about nen back then. He was extremely unreliable.
About this: I don't think that's a fair comparison. At that point in time, Kurapika knew far more than just the 4 basic principles. He was already using In and had nen intense enough to make Uvogin hesitate. Kurapika is not a standard for prodigies, he's a deviant.
I am a strong advocate that Kurapika castrated himself in exchange for the godly power. What is known as the Emperor's Time is actually Empress' Time.
