The Amori Brothers (アモリ3()(きょう)(だい)()()()()()()(), Amori San Kyōdai) are a trio of siblings that are recurring veterans of the Hunter Exams, whose specialty focuses on teamwork above all else. During 287th Hunter Exam, Amori was #197, Imori was #198, and Umori was #199.[1]

BackgroundEdit

According to Tonpa, the brothers have attempted the Hunter Exams multiple times before the 287th session, improving their teamwork each time.[1]

Hunter Exam arcEdit

Tonpa amori

Tonpa pays the brothers for taking care of Nicholas

During the First Phase, Satotz's marathon, they aid Tonpa in driving off a promising contestant named Nicholas, showing that they've known Tonpa for some time and have likely worked together with him before.[2]

During the Fourth Phase of the Hunter Exam on Zevil Island, Imori, the most timid brother, stalks Killua in order to claim his badge. However, Killua easily takes Imori's badge, then overpowers and holds Amori hostage to force Umori to surrender his badge, which is his designated target. After that, he throws the two badges he doesn't need into the forest, failing the trio.[3]

Greed Island arcEdit
