13th Hunter Chairman Election arc
Abilities & PowersShoot has demonstrated considerable physical combat skills, being able to confront enemies much stronger than him like Youpi, although suffering near fatal wounds. However, he has very low confidence in his abilities, which results in him being often regarded as a coward. Nevertheless, he is capable of unbreakable determination and adamant will, as he kept battling the Chimera Ant royal guard despite his injuries were rapidly causing his death. His fighting style is a mixture of martial arts and Nen and does not seem to be hindered by his missing one arm. He is also good at choosing the most suited strategy basing on his opponent's equipment, raw strength and specific abilities. Like many other pro Hunters, he has a big deal of fighting experience. Shoot managed to seal Kite's controlled body, although he may have received help from Knuckle and Morel.
Enhanced speed and reflexes: Shoot can both attack and defend quickly, as displayed in his fight against Killua, where he heard the cracking of electricity and escaped before the assassin could launch his technique. His floating hands can move very swiftly, enough for him to dodge most of Yupi's six sharp tentacles for a prolonged period of time while riding on one.
Enhanced stamina: Shoot was able to fight Yupi despite his extremely severe injuries and could still keep fighting, as so he thought.
Immense pain resistance: Shoot fought with Yupi despite suffering wounds on his whole body and never let out any groan of pain, nor did he faint until some minutes after their confrontation ended.
Proficient in hand-to-hand combat: With his exact degree of skill in martial artistry being unknown, Shoot is adept at close quarter combat, as showcased in his fight against Killua, although he hit with his own body - using a palm strike - only once, while his hook was avoided at the last second.
Shoot is a Manipulator, specialized on manipulating a floating cage and three Nen hands that he uses to deal fast blows, exploiting the foe's blind spots or weak points created by his Hotel Rafflesia. Their main aim is to hit the target, even if they do not inflict much damage, so that parts of his body can be sealed off. Nonetheless, they can be thrown with enough power to knock grown man several meters away from their position. Shoot is also skilled in Zetsu, as he had been stalking Gon and Killua for almost one month without them noticing his presence. He himself stated this is a prerequisite to be a UMA Hunter.
|Shoot's Nen Abilities|
Hotel Rafflesia (
|Shoot's Nen ability is called Hotel Rafflesia, and involves manipulating a cage and three disembodied hands to levitate. With this, he gained the advantage of extending his reach, using the hands similar to remote projectiles with great speed or deliver punches from afar. The limit by which he can control the levitating arms remains unknown. Through dealing damage to his enemy, Shoot can shrink and imprison their entire body or parts of their body inside the cage. During the invasion of the East Gorteau palace, Shoot has shown to stand atop one the hands and ride it with exceptional speed--putting Youpi into his defenses. He is also capable of turning small objects like a token or cell phone into two-dimensional imprints on his right hand.|
- Shoot's name is derivative from a commonly thrown baseball pitch in Japan known as the shootball; Knuckle, Palm, and Gyro are all similarly named.
