Riehlvelt (リールベルト, Riiruberuto) is one of the three fighters that challenged Gon and Killua on the 200th floor of Heavens Arena. Having reached the 200th floor without the use of Nen, he was "initiated" after being attacked with a malicious aura attack and paralyzed from the waist down.

Riehlvelt is a man of average size, he has purple spiky hair and often wears a yellow colored head gear. Due to becoming paralyzed from his "initiation", he is seen moving around in a large big wheeled motorized wheelchair.
Heavens Arena arc
Riehlvelt first appears when Gon and Killua learn how to use nen and reach the 200th floor. Along with his friends Gido and Sadaso, he tried to use Zushi as a hostage to blackmail Gon and Killua and win unfairly against them but their plans were destroyed by Killua, who threatens to kill them if they try to cheat again.
He first fights against Killua fairly in the Heavens Arena, and despite using his best attacks he is defeated by Killua, who blocks his whips and sends him flying in the air. The fall would be fatal to him, but Killua caught him while holding Riehlvelt's electric whips. Riehlvelt ends up electrocuted and falls to the floor defeated. After fighting Killua, Riehlvelt fought Gon, but since Gon knew his attacks after seeing his previous battle with Killua, he successfully jumped on his wheelchair and took Riehlvelt's whips. Gon threatened him that he was switching it on, he was too frightened and fainted, ending up unconscious.
