Three fighters who pick on rookies

Sadaso is one of the three fighters that challenge Gon and Killua on the 200th floor of the Heavens Arena that target rookies for easy wins to become Floor Masters.[2] Sadaso kidnaps Zushi with his Nen to make Gon comply with his demands, namely having Gon forfeit in a match. However, Killua learns of the fight between the two and threatens Sadaso's life,[3] frightening him enough to leave Heavens Arena for good.[4] It's unknown if Sadaso wears a mask, which is commented by a ticket seller when he's talking to Killua.[3]

Sadaso threatened by Killua

When he leaves Heavens Arena after Killua's threat, he is wearing sunglasses/goggles for the first time and his face looks less pale than before. When leaving Heavens Arena, he calls Gido to warn them that Killua will come after them next.[4]

Abilities & Powers

Although he should be praised for surviving a confrontation with a Nen user while still being ignorant about it and for winning fights even as a cripple, Sadaso is not a strong warrior, as he challenges only people new to Nen.


Sadaso is a Transmuter, so he specializes in giving a specific form to his aura or changing its properties.[3]
