Examinee #191 during the Hunter exam. An expert at martial arts, Bodoro is a strict and seemingly stubborn old man with an unspoken rivalry with another martial artist participating in the Hunter Exam. However, this rivalry is tossed aside in the dire circumstances of Rippo's "bonus stage" after the Trick Tower. (This rivalry is only present during the original anime).
When interviewed by Netero for the final stage of the Hunter Exam, his personal code of honor prevents him from fight Gon and Killua, who he sees as children, no matter their combat ability. His first battle in the fifth stage of the test is against Hisoka, who he can not even scratch, despite having a lifetime record of not a single man being able to withstand one hit by him. After a whisper in his ear by Hisoka, he admits defeat, and his next fight is against Leorio.
However, before the fight can start, Killua suddenly pierces Bodoro's chest from behind, with a razor sharp hand, killing him.
