Pike (パイク, Paiku) was a spider-like Chimera Ant Officer in Zazan's squad.[1]


Pike looked like a giant spider, he had eight legs, four of which had human hands. He had the face of an old man with high cheek bones and white hair. He also had a marking that resembles a spider web on his forehead.


Pike was shown to be simple-minded and poor in tactics.[2] He loved being complimented by Zazan and was extremely loyal towards her.[1]

Pike attacks the NGL expedition team

As Pokkle's remaining expedition group try and retreat; Pike ambushes them. Pokkle immediately fires his Nen ability Red Arrow at Pike, but he manages to easily catch it. Pike deduces that the lesser Chimera Ants weren't able to see the arrows shot at them and that Pokkle is a rare prey. He fires his sticky web at Pokkle, only to grab his comrade Balda. He attempts to refrain from eating Balda, but is unable to and bites off his head, killing him. Pike soon realizes his mistake and begins to panic, knowing that he would be punished for disobeying orders. Pokkle then attempts to use an Enhanced punch against an oblivious Pike, but he is soon saved by Zazan, who stuns Pokkle. Zazan chastises Pike for eating the Queen's food, but compliments him on capturing a rare human. This makes Pike flush and brings Pokkle back to the nest with Zazan.[1]

When Hagya announces that all whom want to, should go independent and become their own kings after the birth of the King. Pike appears behind Zazan, along with various other Chimera Ants in favor of Hagya's proposal.[3] Pike follows Zazan to Meteor City where she creates her own nest with the help of Pike's web and acts as it's new queen.[4] When the Phantom Troupe invade the nest intending to exterminate Zazan, Pike informs her of the situation. Intrigued by the Phantom Troupe's strength, Zazan orders Pike to go fight them as well. Although worried about Zazan's well being, Pike is assured of her safety and is complimented by her. Flush again, Pike goes off to deal with the invaders vowing to give it his all and he'll return soon. Pike soon encounters Shizuku and his sticky web attaches to her Nen ability Blinky. Pike compliments Shizuku's strength, but ponders where she hid her vacuum.[5] As Phinks decides which path he should take, the fight between Pike and Shizuku continues.[6]

Shizuku's Blinky caught in Pike's sticky web

Shizuku continues to act on the defensive, while Pike, wonders how she's able to summon Blinky and is able to freely dodge his web. Left with no other alternative, Pike uses a butt straining move Love Shower and captures Shizuku in the sticky webbed net. Pike details to her that attempting to escape is futile, as not even Bihorn could escape from the web. However Shizuku manages to escape by stripping nearly naked and strikes Pike with Blink 29 times all over his body. Confident that she's analyzed everything about Pike and how to fight him, she declares herself and Blinky the winner.[7]

Pike's death

Pike being drained of all of his blood

This makes Pike believe Shizuku's conceding defeat, but she clarifies she isn't, which confuses him. Shizuku then has Blinky drain Pike's blood from the open wounds around his body and while Pike tries to use his 8 limbs to cover up his wounds this proves futile and is completely drained of his blood. After the fight, Shizuku realized that Pike could have used his sticky web to cover up his open wounds to prevent having his blood drained.[2]

Abilities & PowersEdit

Pike like all Chimera Ants is stronger than normal humans. His great number of limbs (eight) allows him to keep his balance efficiently. They would allow him superiority over his opponent, if he were not clumsy to the point of being unable to coordinate himself. He can also adhere to most surfaces. Having the genes of a spider, he can produce a sticky web. He appears to be primarily a middle-range fighter. Despite his inanity, Pike had the upper hand for part of his confrontation with Shizuku, a Phantom Troupe member, forcing her on the defensive.

Enhanced Spider Webs: The main component of Pike's fighting style are the webs he shoots from his anus. These threads of web are both extremely sticky and durable, making it impossible to escape once entangled. They are also shot quite quickly. He can also use them out of combat, spreading them across a very large surface (he even covered both the interior and the exterior of a few palaces to build a palace for Zazan) and using them to detect hostile presences. He can also give an approximate esteem of his opponent's strength judging by the vibrations of the webs caused by their movements.

Enhanced Reflexes: Pike has quick reactions, shown when he caught two of Pokkle's fastest Nen arrows, despite them being fired at close range.[1]

Enhanced Durability: Pike's body is very sturdy. He took a beating by Pokkle with the Hunter Enhancing his punches and despite not being able to use Nen, he was barely grazed. Even Shizuku, despite landing 29 blows of her vacuum cleaner, which could kill a Nen user in a single swing, caused him superficial injuries, which anyway led to his defeat.[2]


Pike was born with the innate ability to see aura.[1]

Type: Unknown Love Shower (「愛の放射線」 (ラヴシャワー) Radiation of Love)
Pike love shower-1 Pike's special ability allows him to instantaneously shoot a whole thick and sticky web from his rear at once, completely immobilizing his target. The web strands are extremely durable and could not be broken even by Bihorn, the strongest of the Chimera ants in terms of physical strength, according to him.[7]
