Greed Island arcEdit

Chibi Gon & Killua

At one point, his team has collected 95 types of specified slot cards,[2] but during a meeting with the Bomb Devils to exchange cards, some of their important cards are stolen by them.[3] Later, in order to obtain the rare card Patch of Shore, Kess and his teammates team up with Goreinu and Gon's team in a series of matches against Razor and his subordinates.[4]

After winning the rare card,[5] he and his team try to delay the progress of the Bomb Devils so that Gon and Killua have time to recover and train.[6] However, before they can collect all the cards, they learn that Battera has cancelled the prize for clearing the game[7] because of the death of his lover. And so, Kess and his team quit playing the game.[8]

13th Hunter Chairman Election arcEdit

After the death of Chairman Netero, Kess and his teammates take part in the First Election for the 13th Hunter Chairman.[9]

Abilities & Powers Edit

Kess is capable enough to have passed the notoriously difficult Hunter Exam.[9] 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 "Patch of Shore".[4] He is also a skilled basketball player, having defeated one of Razor's convicts.[4]


Kess has shown to be able to materialize an object as complex as a radar,[10] meaning he is proficient in Conjuration. This ability complements Tsezguerra's guerrilla tactics very well.[6]

Kess's Nen Abilities
Type: Conjuration Silent Worker (蝿の仕事(サイレントワーカー) Job of a Fly)
  • Silent Worker
  • Showing the location of the target

Kess conjures a device akin to a radar which allows him to track the approximate locations of a specific target or group over a vast area.[10] The Bomb Devils considered this ability impossible to evade.[6]


  • His pseudonym in Greed Island is Dopple (ドッブル, Dobburu).
