Gon, Killua, and Kite arrive at a village that the Ants have already emptied for food. Gon smells something bad, and upon following the scent, they come across cattle that are impaled on tree branches. At this moment, Rammot arrives, and attacks them, shouting that those cattle are his prey. He easily pushes back the two boys, but Kite is able to evade his attack. Rammot acknowledges that he is very strong and that he should be careful while fighting Kite. But to his shock, Kite steps back, and orders the two boys to fight him. He states that the Ant is just a soldier, and if they are not even able to defeat him, they would just become a hindrance later on.
Killua and Gon agree to fight the Ant, while telling Kite that they too are professionals, and that he should not look down on them. Killua attacks first, jumping up high and using 'Thunderbolt' on Rammot. This momentarily paralyzes the Ant, allowing Gon to hit him with 'Jajanken: Rock'. This sends Rammot flying, but before the duo could continue their attacks, Colt swoops in, picks up Rammot, and flies away. As the Ant retreats, he shouts at the two boys, swearing to get revenge. The two boys are shocked, as they realize that their attacks had done next to no damage, but Kite reassures them by saying that they weren't bad, but just need more experience. He then turns serious and tells Gon and Killua that they will get the experience here but only the strong will survive. He says that from here on out, they are going to go through hell. The two boys enthusiastically reply that they are coming along to the journey.
