A few characters in Hunter × Hunter are shown to use animals as a form of weaponry. This could be due to the fact that they are manipulators or simply because they have tamed the animals. Some of these animals are:
- Bees: Ponzu carries bees underneath her big round hat. They emerge and attack her enemies when threatened and she can also use them as message carriers.
- Snakes: Used by the snake charmer Bourbon, these snakes attack anyone Bourbon orders them to. He can also have them hide and attack when the enemy gets close to their master.
- Birds: Similar to Squala's ability, Cluck's ability is to control an undetermined number of birds.
- Leeches: Used by the Shadow Beast Leech, who keeps them in his body. They can be used for medical purposes as well as a deadly weapon.
