Chap 380 - Cha-R Family base

The Family's base

About 250 members[3] of the Cha-R Family boarded the Black Whale 1 in order to secure territory on the New Continent. The boss is a VIP on Tier 1 of the ship. The underlings are scheming to whittle down the numbers of the two rival families, Xi-Yu and Heil-Ly.[2]

Chap 377 - Cha-R group

The group arrives

A large group from the Cha-R Family approach the Phantom Troupe and rudely asks them to leave. Though Chrollo Lucilfer initially refuses, the Troupe members relent after the group's leader informs the Spiders that their previous rampage in Yorknew City made things easier for the Mafia families to get to the New Continent. The leader asks the Troupe to join them, but Chrollo politely declines. After the Spiders leave, the leader decides to inform their Underboss about the situation, and plans to dispose of the Troupe.[4] After a phone call with Onior Longbao, Brocco Li orders Ken'i Wang to find Hisoka before the Phantom Troupe.[1]


There are about 250 members of the family who boarded the Black Whale 1, including fringe members.[3]

  • Taken together, the katakana of the three Mafia families form "Shūeisha", the company responsible for the publication of Weekly Shōnen Jump and of Hunter × Hunter.
  • The crest bears resemblance to the kanji for "to shoot" (射), which can be pronounced like the first part of the family's name ("sha").
  • At least three of the members of the Cha-R family seen thus far sport the tattoo of a rose.[4]
