Majitani (マジタニ, Majitani) is one of the prisoners in Trick Tower, used to test the examinees in the 287th Hunter Examination.[1]

Appearance

Majitani 2011 Design

Majitani 2011 Design

Majitani has a muscular body, with strange blue skin tone (grey in the 1999 series). His face is distorted due to an unsuccessful plastic surgery. There are 19 hearts tattooed on his chest, and a spider tattoo similar to the Phantom Troupe.[1]

Personality

Despite his strong-looking appearance, Majitani is a coward. He boasts his strength and uses the fake Phantom Troupe tattoo on his back to intimidate others.[1]

Background

Majitani was sentenced to 108 years in prison for repeated fraud and blackmail.[1]

Plot

Hunter Exam arc

Kurapika KO's Majitani

Majitani loses

During the events in the third phase of the Hunter Exam, Kurapika volunteered to fight against Majitani. He shows off his tattoos, especially the spider. Kurapika proves that it is a fake; members of the Troupe have their member number engraved onto the spider. He also states that they have killed too many people to keep track of the record.[1]

Majitani becomes the focus of a subsequent confrontation as both sides wager hours in order to conclude the battle in accordance to the rules.[2] He pretends to have fainted to earn his side more hours, but his bluff is uncovered by Leorio.

Abilities & Powers

Majitani is an incompetent fighter, so he uses intimidation to force his opponents to surrender or flee. For that purpose, he modified his appearance chirurgically, and even copied (though incorrectly) the tattoo of the Phantom Troupe. Furthermore, he has implanted iron bars in his fist: this allows him to deal a strong punch, but it hurts him so much he prefers to use it only once in a fight, to scare off his foe.

Trivia

  • Majitani's 2011 Japanese voice actor, Kazuki Yao, also played Izunavi in the 1999 anime adaption.
  • Majitani's 1999 Japanese voice actor Hidenobu Kiuchi, also plays Basho in the 1999 anime adaption, and Franklin & Leech in the 2011 anime adaption.
