The Gas Life-Form Ai




Located in

Dark Continent

Manga Debut

Chapter 341

The Gaseous Life Form Ai (アイ, Ai) is a mysterious being and one of the Five Great Calamities that humanity met in the Dark Continent.[1] It lives South-southwest of Lake Mobius.


Little is known of Ai's appearance, but it seems to be a gaseous life-form with limb-like appendages extending from its main form.[1]


When the Republic of the Mimbo Republic, after enlisting the help of the Hunter Association, sent an expedition to the Dark Continent searching for the Trinity Elixir, when they were surrounded by Ai. After a still unknown dispute or struggle ensued, only three survivors returned, but empty-handed and without even a shred of their sanity.[2] While it was said to have been locked up after being brought back from the Dark Continent, there have been victims of Ai found within the known world.[2] This is likely the result of Alluka Zoldyck, as Nanika is stated to be an Ai.[1]

Abilities & PowersEdit

While not much is stated about Ai's abilities, it can be assumed that they greatly resemble the abilities shown by Nanika. According to the Hunter Association's Dangerous Creatures Evaluation List, Ai merits a threat level of A, which is even higher than that of the Chimera Ants.[2]

Trivia Edit

  • Its name seems to derive from the sound it makes.
  • Its full title reads "The gaseous life form: Ai, codependence of desire", codependency being a type of dysfunctional relationship where one person supports or encourages the self-destructive behavior of another individual.
