There are various types of transportation vehicles in the Hunter × Hunter world.

AircraftsEdit

PR - Airships

Airships are a type of aircraft widely used for long distance travel. They are spacious enough to include bars, lounges and bedrooms. The first airship seen in the series was used by Chairman Netero when he visited the participants of the 287th Hunter Exam during the 2nd phase.[1] Ringon Airport in Yorknew City seemed to have only airships.[2]

Another type of aircraft that has been seen in the series is hot air balloon. The Phantom Troupe used a hot air balloon to escape to the Gordeau Desert after raiding the Underground Auction.[3] Milluki Zoldyck used a small hot air balloon to leave Kukuroo Mountain to go to Yorknew City.[4]

Due to the world in Hunter × Hunter is being limited by the Dark Continent, the development of a regular airplane is unnecessary due to the short distances between countries in the human world.

WatercraftsEdit

Khara's boat

In the preliminary phase of the 287th Hunter Examination, Gon, Kurapika, and Leorio went to Zaban City on a ship. In the 4th Phase, the candidates had to use some boats to get to Zevil Island. The Phantom Troupe used a boat to reach Greed Island as well.[5]

Road vehiclesEdit

Cars

Cars are the most used transportation vehicle. Leorio once had to drive a car to help Kurapika go after the Phantom Troupe. During the Southernpiece Auction's time, Neon's bodyguards were shown to have several cars of their own.[6] Aside from private cars, vehicles for hire such as taxicabs and buses are also popular. In the Republic of Padokea, Gon, Kurapika, and Leorio took a tour bus to reach Kukuroo Mountain.[7] During Killua journey to save Gon, he and his butlers are seen using a limo as mean of transportation.[8] Bizeff, Hina, and Welfin are seen using an RV to go to Meteor City to find Gyro.[9]

Transportation vehicles like truck are used heavily in the Republic of East Gorteau to transport items to the basement of the Royal Palace.[10]

Rail vehiclesEdit

Trains

Rail vehicles are a common type of transportation. The first train seen was the one on which Gon, Kurapika, and Leorio got to the neighborhood of Kukuroo Mountain.[7] In the 1999 anime, Kurapika meets Melody in a train station.[11] The Phantom Troupe rode a train when chasing after Kurapika.[12] Morel Mackernasey and his comrades took a train to arrive in the Republic of East Gorteau during their Extermination Mission.[13] Only the names of a few stations have been known are Kastour, Lipa and Tarsetol Stations.[12] Gon and Killua rode a train to meet Kurapika at the beginning of the Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge movie.[14]

SkateboardEdit

During the 1st Phase of the 287th Hunter Exam, Killua has a skateboard which he uses to travel a few kilometers.[15]

TriviaEdit

  • Most of the aircrafts in the Hunter × Hunter world seem to be amalgamations of various types of real-world aircrafts, like: airplanes, helicopters, airships (dirigible balloons/Zeppelins and blimps), and hot air balloons; varying the combinations and elements used, not necessarily all in each aircraft, with the predominance of airship/dirigible characteristics.
