Komugi main

Komugi's full appearance in the anime

She appears as a young girl with messy white hair; two portions raveled into ponytails. She had thick black eyebrows, and always kept her eyes closed, unless playing Gungi. Komugi wore a pink tunic, with a white long sleeve shirt underneath. She was seen carrying a walking stick when entering the Royal Palace of East Gorteau.

Her outfit then changes around the time she was healed by Pitou. She is then wearing a different skirt, similar to the old one, but without the ruffles at the bottom.


Komugi was rather childish and simple-minded. She lacked common knowledge at times, yet was brilliant in Gungi, and enjoyed the game immensely. She tended to constantly talk herself down, but was friendly and polite towards others. Being blind, she was always ignorant of the world around her and was unable to sense Shaiapouf's intense malice to her.


Komugi was born in a family of twelve in Republic of East Gorteau. Ever since starting to play Gungi as the country's representative, she makes little money for her family. However, when she chose to become a professional player, she decided to kill herself if she ever lost.[1]

King-Komugi 105

Meruem threatens Komugi

Komugi a girl with snot constantly dripping from her nose, was introduced after the Chimera Ant King takes over East Gorteau. Though blind, she's the world champion in the board game of Gungi[2] and frequently plays with the King.[3][4][5][6] She constantly berates herself, thinking that her only skill is playing Gungi; she even comes to the conclusion that she is worthless (garbage in her words), if she loses a single match. The King develops feelings toward Komugi due to her brilliance and skill in Gungi and her unassuming nature, despite her being a human.[1] She awakens to Nen as a result of playing constantly with the King, her ability being one that allows her to improve in the game. Komugi becomes the first human whom the King acknowledges by name.[7]

112 - Meruem and Komugi

Meruem lays Komugi down for healing

During the raid on the Palace of East Gorteau, Komugi is severely injured in her midsection as a result of Zeno's Dragon Dive ability.[8] Komugi is healed by Neferpitou and is put under Killua's watch.[9] When Shaiapouf attempts to erase her existence before the King[10] (who suffers amnesia following being attacked with the Miniature Rose) returns to the palace.[11] Killua leaves Komugi in Palm's care before rushing to Gon's side.[12]

Meruem death

After the end of the battle, Meruem returns to Komugi's side.[13] He reveals to Komugi that he has been poisoned by the Miniature Rose and doesn't have long to live. Meruem goes on to say that he wishes to spend his final moments playing Gungi with her; due to the poison's contagion, he warns her that she too will die if she stays by his side. Komugi couldn't be happier and asks if she could join him.[14] Meruem passes away in Komugi's lap while they hold hands, with Komugi dying soon thereafter.[15]

13th Hunter Chairman Election arcEdit

Komugi is seen holding Meruem's hand, even in death.[16]

Abilities & PowersEdit

Komugi is the best Gungi player in East Gorteau and the current world champion. Her talent has surfaced very early, allowing her to come up with world-renowned strategies and counter-strategies when she was little more than a child. Due to her resolution to commit suicide if she ever were to lose, it can be inferred that she has never lost a single game since her first official game. Not even Meruem, despite his superhuman intellect, managed to defeat her once. Due to her being blind, added to a frail constitution, Komugi believes she can do nothing except playing Gungi. However, she claims she can play Gungi for three days and three nights straight.


Komugi is a genius in Nen, being capable of using it, albeit unconsciously, without ever receiving any training. Her proficiency, however, is limited to Gungi.

Rapidly Evolving Gungi Playing Skills
Komugi Gungi Skill As a genius, Komugi seems to unconsciously use Nen when she plays Gungi. Her ability enables her to uncannily improve in Gungi with every game played. Her Gungi abilites seem to be so great due to a harsh restriction she has placed on herself, which is that if she were to ever lose a game, she would lose her life.


  • (To Meruem) "There's a saying among players... ...tha' "A Gungi king is a mere mortal once he's lost." If I lose... I'm worthless."[1]


  • Komugi may have Savant syndrome, due to her brilliant skills in playing the game Gungi and not being any good in doing anything else.
  • According to the "Hunter × Hunter Manual" section found in the Yu ☆ Yu ☆ Hakusho official character book (Shueisha Jump remix), Komugi's stats are:
