Gon is an emotional 12 year old kid who has never suffered like Killua did, of course he would react that way. Killua has been teached to keep his head cool in situations like that, Gon doesnt.
And it doesn't ruins his character at all, actually I think its where develops the best.

Really? I speak from personal experience that Gon acted in a completely ridiculous way. You don't just get a murder boner and start screaming at your friend to piss off. If he acted like Shinji and moped around for the first half of End of Evangelion and do questionable things, then he still would have been a good character. Great job making the character I'm supposed to like completely unlikable.

Killua for his character development, Gon for just how interesting it is to see how his character reacts and progresses to the oncoming situations/plot. After the Chimera Ant arc, god knows what will become of Gon in the future.

If I'd choose between one of them to put on my favorites, I'd put Gon.

Killua has a more interesting design and fighting style. He got nice development too.

Gon has a lot going for him though. He's very interesting to watch as a deconstruction of standard shonen protags. I love how qualities like his determination and idealism work against him at times and come with real consequences. Kid's insane.

Kurapika is the best mc tbh.

I've always considered Killua to be the best character is Hunter x Hunter hands down, he can literally carry this show on his back.

Depends on which arc.

Chimera Ant Arc = Gon hands down.
Every other arc = Killua.


Personally, Killua is one of my favorite anime characters of all time, along with Hisoka and Meruem.

I enjoyed Gon more so than Killua because Gon is unpredictable.

Gon fighting style is what I enjoy the most about him. With Killua, it's either he wins hands down, or has to retreat, even after pulling out the needle.

Gon on the other hand is underrated when people talk about his fighting ability. I tbink he shows more strategy than Killua in most cases..

Plus Gon's way of speaking reminds me of myself so my vote goes towards Gon.

I think all the characters are great, I just loved seeing the dynamic Killua had with Gon and the efficacy at which his feelings were displayed. Their friendship was the heart of the series for me <3 and is the reason why I love this anime so much.

I like Killua more because he's more unique. I like all of the 4 "main" characters though.

Kurapika>Killua>Leorio>Gon

Killua, he's been consistently great while Gon started to annoy me during the CA arc. Also Killua has cooler powers.

I love Killua a lot but I love Gon too. Killua is fast, cute, strong and amazing and Gon is fast, cute, strong and amazing. So really I can't choose. If i had to pick for being ONLY friends with i'll pick...Gon. but i could pick Killua but...
to sum it up it's a hard decision and i would pick both because they are both amazing. Btw i'm on ep 104 @_@

I like Killua better because of his personality, design, and use of fighting techniques. Also I like his voice better than Gon's as a bonus.

And the more Killua we get, the more the story explores on his family, who are for the most part, interesting vs Gon's Ging.

I think usually I'd pick Killua, but Gon is one of the best parts of Chimera Ant. He's really at his most interesting in that arc.

I liked them both equally until this.........................





Gon going straight up "BEAST-MODE" on Pitou's fucking ass was one of the greatest moments ever in Anime.

I have to compliment the show for taking risks with Gon, but it was at the cost of making him way too often unlikeable and hard to stomach. The "problem" (it's not, but you know, till it pays off in CA it is a constant bother) with him is that his morals are twisted and he is still given the trascendence and moral high ground of a hero. He is self-centered and observes things with a very biased rationale, dividing people between "good" and "evil" just through his gut reaction when things are far more complicated than that in the world of HxH. He's basically a nice and laidback but dangerously hypocritical character. It's difficult to like a character like this, specially when it's just a routine portrayal and there isn't something huge and ambitious to do with this concept as it happens for most of the show's run.

Through the course of the series, and even in Gon's big moment, I have to admit I sided more with Killua. He is supposed to be the assassin and morally grey character but I find that his observational perspective with Gon is far easier to understand than Gon himself, and the way he cares about their friendship has hit me deeply quite a few times.

So, my vote here is for Killua, and admitting that what the series did with Gon is really cool, but since the story is long and I can't reduce things to a single moment in a single arc, I'm going with the one I most consistently enjoyed, empathized and sided with.

Hard question, Killua is a better char and also very likeable but Gon is much more the representation of a kid with a pyschopathic side within , he is unhinged, does and gets what he wants acts beyond reason and that makes him much more dangerous. I love that they foreshadowed this several times before the big moment.

Huh killua isn't overrated at all ,guy grows really well with time (i admit i hated him the first 30 eps) and becomes the most wholesome character of all from the most edgy, he's deeper than gon too although gon more interesting.

Ok I understand you but now, when I'm rewatching HxH I still think that Killua is overrated. He would be more intresting character if he isn't that much simp to Gon but now he's a little bit boring and personally I prefer Illumi out of Zoldyck family
