Gun-toting Ant (ギョガン, Gyogan—lit. "Fish-face/Fisheye") was a reptile-like Chimera Ant Officer working under Zazan.[1]

AppearanceEdit

This Chimera Ant has long red hair with razor sharp teeth and has the appearance of a reptile with fish like qualities. His body appears to consist of a hard green outer shell, which is covered in spines.

PersonalityEdit

The Gun-toting Ant is very sadistic as he enjoys killing his victims mercilessly and mutilating their bodies.

PlotEdit

Chimera Ant arcEdit

Ponzu death 2

The Gun-toting Ant killing Ponzu

The Gun-toting Ant wielding two pistols laughs hysterically near a couple of dead human bodies.[1] Fleeing in fear from Chimera Ants, Ponzu is ambushed and killed by the Gun-toting Ant whom proceeds to eat Ponzu's remains.[2] After the King is born and Hagya announces that all of the Chimera Ants should go independent and become their own kings; the Gun-toting Ant appears alongside various other Chimera Ants in favor of Hagya's proposal.[3]

During the Phantom Troupe's siege against Zazan's division in Meteor City. The Gun-toting Ant confronts Bonolenov and tries to hug him so he could squeeze him against his spiky body. Bonolenov, however, dodges the Chimera Ant and strips himself of his bandages as the Gun-toting Ant observes Bonolenov's body is covered not moles, but holes. The Gun-toting Ant then witnesses Bonolenov begin to dance as musical sounds were made from his holes.[4]

Using his Battle Cantabile: The Prologue Nen ability, Bonolenov transforms into a more tribal appearance, while wielding a spear stabs the Chimera Ant in the chest with said spear. Thinking he's won; Bonolenov boasts his heritage and as he tries to leave the Chimera Ant stops him and insults his heritage. Enraged Bonolenov becomes serious and claims that the Chimera Ant's insult has no effect on him.[4] As Phinks decides which path he should take, the fight between the Gun-toting Ant and Bonolenov continues.[5] While the Gun-toting Ant struggles to land a blow onto Bonolenov who taunts the Chimera Ant to at least try and prevent his performance. The Gun-toting Ant agitated by Bonolenov taunt, charges at Bonolenov, who easily dodges. However the Ant instead of continuing to attack he flees and plans to get Pike to cover up Bonolenov with his sticky web to prevent him from making any more noise. As the Gun-toting Ant flees he claims next time he'll "rip [him] apart". Bonolenov compliments the Ant speed, but claims he's not as fast as the speed of sound.[6]

Battle Cantabile Jupiter

Crushed by Bonolenov's Jupiter

Bonolenov activates his Battle Cantabile: Jupiter Hatsu ability crushing the Gun-toting Ant to death, despite the Ant's best effort to outrun Bonolenov in vain. Standing on top of the Gun-toting Ant's corpse, Bonolenov comments being crushed to death was a fitting way for the Ant to die.[6]

Abilities & PowersEdit

As a Chimera Ant he already was stronger than the average human. His razor sharp teeth and claws allowed him to easily rip apart a humans body, it can inferred that the spines on his body work as an offense and defense. He is also one of the first and few Chimera Ants to utilize human weaponry. He was complimented by Bonolenov for his speed, and his body is durable enough to withstand one of his techniques with no injury. He also seemed to be rather proficient in sneak attacks.
