You know, being friendly isn’t the same as being good or kind. When you think about it, a lot of the murderous psychopath s populating the Hunter x Hunter universe are pretty friendly, you know…until they’re not.

Gon only has two settings: “happy” and “murder”

Friendliest character

Even though there are  a lot of potential contenders for the title, let’s face it, Gon leaves them all in the dust.

I’ve briefly touched on the (absolutely disarming) depths of Gon’s character. When you get right down to it, he’s selfish, inconsiderate and brutally uncompromising. Gon is not a great person. He is also still a child and those are common traits in kids but when you have his power, they take on a whole new meaning.

see what I mean

It’s not as if he’s particularly duplicitous either. After all, he’s never made any real effort to hide those parts of his personality, they just aren’t always obvious. I’m being coy on purpose. The reveal is a powerful moment. However you may ultimately feel about him, if there’s one thing that is obvious, it’s that Gon is one friendly guy. It’s practically his character defining trait. Not fair, or kind or even loyal but always super friendly.

By and large, Gon seems completely impervious to prejudices. He is indifferent to gender, appearance, status, even reputation. No matter who you are gon is always happy to get to know you. You can bet that if he’s giving you the cold shoulder, there’s a mighty good reason for it.

friend to all

And this open attitude towards others seems completely genuine to boot. He isn’t gaining favour or avoiding trouble, this is just a guy who’s been lucky and strong enough never to have learned caution.

But, should you ever mistake this welcoming attitude for foolishness or naivety, you are likely to be sorry. Gon may never turn cold but he does run hot and his anger isn’t something you want to come up against.

  1. Gon being the friendliest character was obvious and he’d win by a country mile. I do like how they balance his character and how he’s less naive than how he may come across. He’s also the epitome of “beware the nice/friendly ones” in HXH by far.

  2. When I 1st started watching hunter x hunter I was afraid that Gon would annoy me. He seemed so simple and happy, I thought he was going to be so bland… This show is rarely what you think it is!!

  3. Yeah gon puts everyone in a corner when it comes to being friendly! But I do think that he also as a great judging and he’s really correct xP
    Yeah… I also hate when my body just remembers to explode >< the cleaning afterwards is the worst part bah
