Baro looks like a large armadillo with blue hair and razor sharp teeth. He also has a strange marking on his forehead.
Baro is a ill tempered and very sadistic creature that loves torturing humans. He finds it funny when humans vomit their organs.
Chimera Ant arc
Under the leadership of Frog; Baro and numerous other Chimera Ant Officers, are ordered by Hagya to capture Kite, Killua, and Gon dead or alive. With Kite and group surrounded and choosing to fight the Ants, it's decided through a drawing whom will fight, and Baro is picked to go up against Gon in a 1-on-1 death-match. Baro expressing great excitement being able to fight first, Gon tries to reason with Baro not to fight, much to his chagrin. Becoming increasingly frustrated if not agitated by Gon's sympathetic reasoning, Baro charges at Gon and misses, but with his next attack he manages to pin Gon to a tree, by shifting the direction of his attack with his tail.
Disappointed that Gon is unscathed by his attack, Baro tells him if he was a "normal person" his internal organs would be splattered all over the place. Hearing this infuriates Gon, as Baro taunts Gon to give up and be fed to the Chimera Ant Queen and boasts about his Bullet attack. With Gon ready to fight Baro again, the Ant confesses thinking that Gon will die soon, that he take great pleasure in killing people. And not just for the sake of food or survival, just for the sake of killing. Hearing Baro admit this with a twisted smile, enrages Gon immensely.
After Baro makes one last confession, he uses his Bullet attack once more on Gon, but instead of dodging, Gon bolsters his Ren and catches Baro, while managing to stop his attack. Gon then proclaims Baro's attack was nothing compared Razor's dodgeball spikes and crushes Baro to death.
Abilities & Powers
Baro, like all Chimera Ants, is stronger than normal humans. He can form into a ball to attack his enemies, unleashing a blow powerful enough to destroy a tree and quickly switch directions using his tail.
- Baro is the first Chimera Ant out of the two that Gon had killed under his own free will (the other being Neferpitou). Baro is also the first character in Hunter × Hunter who Gon had made a deliberate decision to kill.
