Barry (バリー, Barī) is a professional Hunter hired by Battera to play the game Greed Island.[1]


Barry has a youthful appearance and a sculpted physique. He has freckles on his cheeks and chest, a cleft chin, and short, spiky, fair hair. He is most commonly seen wearing the same military-like attire as his teammates, with the addition of a cap worn sideways.


At some point in his life, Barry took and passed a Hunter Exam and learned Nen.[2] He, Kess, and Rodriot have been members of team Tsezguerra for 20 years,[3] and were hired by Battera to play Greed Island.[4]


Greed Island arcEdit

Tsezguerra's Team

Barry with Tsezguerra and team

While on Greed Island, the team collects as many as 95 different specified slot cards before contacting the Bomb Devils to trade.[4] During the trade, Genthru diverts the team's attention while Sub and Bara steal two cards from each of them, breaking their monopolies and acquiring rare cards, among which were Barry's duplicates of "Fledgling Novelist" and "King White Stag Beetle". The Bomb Devils then escape to Masadora. Tsezguerra does not give chase, realizing Genthru is in fact the Bomber. Barry worries that his team may have acquired all 99 specified slot cards, so Tsezguerra casts "List" on "Plot of Beach", which no player has acquired. They resolve to find it before the Bomb Devils and establish a monopoly. They thus head to Soufrabi.[1] They are, however, unable to discover how to get it. Not long after, Tsezguerra is contacted by Goreinu, who meets up with him and Rodriot to negotiate an alliance to get "Plot of Beach" while Barry and Kess hide in the bushes. After listening to Goreinu's explanation of Razor's challenges, Barry volunteers for boxing, stating he has a strategy. After one week, the alliance confronts Razor and his pirates. Barry is the first to play, and his in-boxing style prevents his opponent from using his Emission abilities. Barry easily overpowers him and scores the first win.[5]

Because of their victories, Barry, Kess, and Rodriot are unable to participate in the dodgeball match, so they watch from the sidelines, administering first aid to Tsezguerra and Gon.[6][7][8][9][10][11][12] After their victory, Gon takes the original "Plot of Beach" while Tsezguerra's team settles for a copy. The Bomb Devils immediately find out and threaten Tsezguerra, assuming he has the original.[13] He strikes a deal with Gon's group to hold off the Bomber for three weeks in return for "Wild Luck Alexandrite". They restock on transportation spells before meeting up with the Bomb Devils.[14] Tsezguerra's team refuses the hand over the card and take cards from the Bomb Devils before escaping. Goreinu gives them the transportation spells he has amassed.[15] Over the next 9 days, Barry assists in launching hit-and-run attacks against the Bomb Devils.[16] One week later, the Bomb Devils fly to them, Barry takes over as the "Accompany" caster when Tsezguerra runs out. When they exhaust their transportation spells, they leave the game, only to find Battera's mansion empty except for Sabazushi and the billionaire himself, who has cancelled the reward and locked himself in his room without explanation. When the Bomb Devils arrive,[17] Tsezguerra's team escape with Battera, quitting the game for good. They learn that Battera offered a reward for clearing the game so he would be able to cure his comatose lover, who however died one month earlier.[3]

After the death of Chairman Netero, Barry with Tsezguerra and his 3 teammates take part in the First Election for the 13th Hunter Chairman.[2]

Abilities & PowersEdit

Barry is capable enough to have passed the notoriously difficult Hunter Exam.[2] As one of the Hunters hired by Battera and part of Tsezguerra's team, he is bound to be at least a decent Nen user, as confirmed later when Gon's team and Goreinu enlisted the help of other players to acquire "Plot of Beach". He is also a skilled boxer who managed to defeat the Pirate boxer without taking even one hit,[5] which is a remarkable feat, considering the latter had previously managed to knock out an adversary with only one uppercut.[18] By boxing as an n-fighter, he was able to completely overwhelm his opponent, proving himself not only a skilled boxer, but also a good tactician. He is very fit, and capable of chaining a barrage of punches until the adversary is knocked out.[5]


Due to being able to access Greed Island, Barry is capable of utilizing Nen.[19]
