The Heaven's Arena (
The fourth-tallest building in the world, Heaven's Arena stands 991 meters (approx. 3,250 feet) tall and has 251 floors. Inside, thousands of martial artists (4,000 fighters on average) compete daily in order to test their skills and advance to higher floors. The annual spectator attendance is over 1 billion and the building is fully equipped with service facilities, including restaurants and shopping.
Competitors are allowed to fight and defeat their opponent using any means, but weapons are not allowed on the first 199 floors. One is given prize money for advancing on each of the 199 floors; after reaching the 100th floor, competitors get their own private room. When Killua first went to Heaven's Arena, he quit at the 199th floor and spent all the prize money on cakes.
Up to the 200th floor, the building is divided into twenty 10-floor parts. For example, a fighter who wins on the 40th floor advances to the 50th, and one who loses on the same level regresses to the 30th: a 10-story scale.
The 200th FloorEdit
The floors above the 200th offer no prize money. Weapons are allowed on this floor. A fighter has 90 days to prepare for any fight, though it's possible to fight everyday if wanted. The 21 highest ranked competitors are called Floor Masters because they're given their own floor between the 230th and 250th floors. Losing four matches results in disqualification, while winning ten matches results in being awarded the right to challenge a Floor Master. The 251st floor of Heaven's Arena holds a biennial tournament called the Battle Olympia; the victor is allowed to live on the 251st floor in an exclusive penthouse.
All of the fighters from the 200th floor and above use Nen. If one reaches the 200th floor without knowing how to use Nen, many fighters take it upon themselves to "initiate" the uninitiated by attacking them with Nen. Those "initiated" typically suffer severe injury, if not death. Sadaso, Gido, and Riehlvelt are all Heaven's Arena fighters who were "initiated" and each of them suffered a permanent disability as a result. Prior to Gon and Killua's registration, there were 172 fighters on standby on the 200th floor.
