Gon Freecss (ゴン゠フリークス, Gon Furīkusu) is a Rookie Hunter and the son of Ging Freecss. Finding his father is Gon's motivation in becoming a Hunter. He has been the main protagonist for most of the series.
Gon wants to become a Hunter because he wishes to find out the depths of an occupation that would cause a father to choose the profession over being with his own son.
Gon is an athletic, rustic, and friendly boy who is searching for adventure. Also, he is not very good at math. However, having spent a lot of time in the woods as a child, he is very good with animals. Simultaneously, his flaws lie in his temper and impulsive nature. Gon sometimes fails to think things through and such actions lead to him suffering. Though possessing talent far beyond the norm for his age, anytime his abilities are challenged, he feels as if he has to prove his antagonist wrong.
Gon is an Enhancer, who are known for being simple-minded and determined. This determination and talent lead to both potential allies and potential enemies trusting in him and taking his side. He has inhuman senses; Gon has a heightened sense of smell almost like a dog's, he also has very good vision, as well as having a very keen taste.
Since his early youth, due to his father's absence and Mito's dislike of Ging, Gon was told that his parents died in an accident when he was a baby. At the age of nine, Gon was rescued from an angry mother Foxbear by a man named Kite—a professional Hunter and a student of Gon's long lost father. After hitting Gon in the face, Kite attempted to kill the Foxbear's cub but Gon protected it. Kite admitted to looking for Ging as a final test to be seen by his master as a true Hunter. Kite's admiration of Ging awoke in Gon the goal of meeting his father. In order to do so, Gon was driven from that moment to obtain a Hunter License, also desiring to know what would cause Ging to choose his profession as a Hunter over being a parent as his motivation for becoming a Hunter
After gon passed the 287th Hunter Exam, Gon is at a loss as to how to accomplish his immediate goal. After Killua showed the power gap between his rivals by drawing a line on the ground, Killua suggest training their combat skills and earning money at the Heavens Arena.
Gon and Killua meet a boy named Zushi and his disciple Wing at the Heavens Arena. After reaching to the 150th floor on the Heavens Arena, Wing teaches them about the true Nen. At the end of the month, Wing allows Gon and Killua to train along with Zushi and help them to improve their Nen.
During the Yorknew City arc, alongside with Killua and Leorio, Gon helped Kurapika avenge his clan in attempt to exterminate the Phantom Troupe.
After beating the game ,Greed Island, created by his dad, Gon reverted the card he claimed as a price , Paladin's Necklace, to ''Accompany'' after finding out that the person entered the game after him isn't Goreinu, the person to enter the game after him,but an anagram of "Ging". He proclaimed the card ''Accompany'' wil take him and Killua to Ging. However, they end up teleporting to Kite , Ging's former student.
In the Chimera Ant arc, once in front of the Kite's reanimated body, Neferpitou reveals the man is dead and she cannot bring him back to life. Gon's sense of guilt makes him feel responsible for Kite's demise, Gon unleashes all the anger and sorrow he was keeping within himself, demanding from his Nen all the power he will ever have without caring about the consequences.
In the aftermath, he falls unconscious and Killua carries him to the rest of the Extermination Team. He is put into a hospital in a comatous state in extremely precarious conditions and requires life support.
After being healed by Alluka Zoldyck, Gon traveled to the World Tree, accompanied by Killua and Alluka. Gon then climbs the World Tree and meets Ging. He tells Gon about the "outside world", and the fact that the Chimera Ants originated from said place. He explains to Gon that the world is a vast place with so many secrets and that he should take his time on his own journey.
