Rammot is a Chimera Ant mixed with the genes of a human, a rabbit, and a shrike. He appears to look like a humanoid rabbit with feathers on his arms. Rammot also has a thin mustache, long hair, a dark spot on his left eye, and wears a thong.
Rammot is a cruel sadist. He kills not just to feed, but because he delights in the agony of his victims. Despite his initial proposition to kill him slowly, when Killua started to cry during their fight, he enjoyed the scene so much that he could no longer wait and decided to deal the finishing blow. He is also vengeful and quick-tempered, attacking Kite's party because he thought they were trying to steal his prey. After nearly dying at the hands of Gon and Killua, he began to harbor a strong hatred towards them, wishing to kill them and then feed on them despite this going against his orders. In fact, unlike most soldier Chimera Ants, Rammot is very self-centered, obeying his superiors only because he is afraid of them. After his aura nodes were opened, he became extremely cocky and planned to use his power to become the king, but the appearance of Neferpitou put an end to his selfish ambition.
Chimera Ant arc
Rammot first appears trying to eat a child while raiding towns in NGL. As an underling of Colt, he has no choice but to obey his orders and not eat humans. Following his leader's orders, he only fed on horses and other animals found in the area. He eventually spots Gon, Killua, and Kite after having just impaled three animals onto a tree.
Rammot attacks the trio for having gotten near his meal. Gon and Killua are delegated to defeat the Ant and showcase their Nen abilities for the first time since Greed Island. Though initially sensitive to the presence of Nen, after being attacked with it, Rammot's aura nodes are opened. After a period of agonizing suffering, Rammot becomes aware of the power and the first Chimera Ant with the ability to use Nen. Cocky at first, he wanted to become a leader.
He was humbled after feeling Neferpitou's aura. He then realizes that his strength and purpose is to follow Neferpitou and the Chimera Ant Queen. As the first Chimera Ant to learn Nen, he punched Colt in the face to initiate him. Rammot, alongside many of the other Chimera Ants, decides to leave the nest in NGL after the King kills The Queen in utero. After Rammot leaves the nest, he follows the scent of a human—revealed to be Killua. Rammot attacks, believing that he would be able to defeat Killua with his new powers.
Killua spends the battle running, acting under the influence of Illumi's needle. Killua resists, battling with his inner desire to run and his other to protect the powerless Gon. Rammot continues his assault and struggles to control himself. The Ant is about to give the finishing blow, when Killua dodges it after finding a needle placed into his head by his older brother in order to manipulate him. After seeing Killua stab his own head and see the boy find confidence, he is the one to feel fear. Killua decapitates Rammot and crushes his head.
Abilities & Powers
Rammot, like all Chimera Ants, is physically stronger than normal humans. However, he is even stronger than a normal Chimera Ant soldier, since he gave Killua and Gon a fair fight. In particular, he briefly bested the two boys in strength and speed, and was shown to be durable enough to take two powerful Nen abilities and remain conscious. Peggy speculated that he managed to survive thanks to his mental strength, which is fully manifested in the form of blinding anger. Rammot also has a good eye to gauge the power of his opponents, as even before learning Nen he realized the gap between himself and Kite.
Enhanced Strength: One of Rammot's punches caused Killua's arms to shiver after the latter blocked the blow, indicating it was rather powerful.
Enhanced Speed and Reflexes: Rammot's reactions are so fast that he can fight off two very quick individuals like Gon and Killua without trouble, also moving swiftly enough to cover the distance between himself and the two and strike Gon full in the face before the boy could defend himself.
Enhanced Durability: Rammot took a powerful electric attack and the punch of an Enhancer head on without dying or passing out, but screaming at the attackers in anger. Although he suffered critical internal damage, his body exhibited only minor injuries.
Rammot is an Enhancer, so he focuses his aura into increasing his natural abilities. After he sneaked up on his party, Kite wondered if he was a natural Zetsu user. Rammot acquired a remarkable control over his aura in less time than Gon and Killua, who are considered prodigies, although this is a trait shared by most Chimera Ants. Thanks to his Nen type, he developed a healing factor that allowed him to recover from wounds that were thought to be fatal.
