|2011 | Manga|
Zazan (ザザン, Zazan) was a scorpion-like Chimera Ant Squadron Leader and one of the more disobedient leaders as she allowed her subordinates to freely kill and eat humans. After the Queen's death, Zazan proclaimed herself a queen and set out to form her own colony.
Zazan is a Chimera Ant that resembles a human, excluding her scorpion-esque tail and her mannequin-like hands and legs which resemble most Chimera Ants. Her tail appears to be about a long as her height. She has long fuchsia hair, purple skin, large breasts and legs that resemble thick boots. She is scantily dressed in a pair of underwear and a short shirt. After becoming a queen on her own, her outfit changes to a thong, a corset and a short bra. She also wore a long skirt to hide her tail from her enemies.
Zazan is extremely self-confident, egocentric, and vain. She has also a particular lust for power, in fact Zazan becomes the self-proclaimed new Chimera Ant Queen. Despite having normally an arrogant and composed attitude she easily gets furious if anything damages her beauty revealing a considerable violent and vengeful side of her.
Chimera Ant arc
Zazan is first introduced when she subdues Pokkle with her stinger, saving her doting subordinate Pike from Pokkle's attacks. After the Chimera Ant Queen's death she proclaims herself to be the new queen, taking over a castle in Meteor City and turning a copious number of humans there into subservient minions with her sting.
Her reign is interrupted by the Phantom Troupe, who entered her castle, killed all of her subordinates, and go searching for her; establishing the first one to defeat her will be the temporary leader, during Chrollo Lucilfer's absence. Enraged by the Phantom Troupe's actions, she fights against Feitan, who immediately provokes her saying that he doesn't believe that she is the queen and that she must be joking. The two then fight and it seems that they are evenly matched, then with a surprise attack Feitan tries to kill her with a fatal hit in the head, but Zazan shows only a little cut on her face, leaving Feitan surprised by her hardened skin.
Zazan then goes berserk and uses her last resort. She removes her tail and transforms herself into a hideous monster with even greater strength and super-hardened skin. In her ultimate form, she is able to overpower Feitan and severely damage his left arm. This angers Feitan into using his Nen ability, Pain Packer, and despite Zazan's thick skin, he ends up incinerating her with his Rising Sun attack.
Abilities & Powers
During her time as a Squadron Leader, Zazan had authority over his underlings, which she ratained and amplified after proclaming herself queen and enslaving a great number of humans. Zazan, like all Chimera Ants, is stronger than normal humans, and shows considerable fighting skills, being able to fight on the same level as Feitan and even overpower him for most of the fight, although she eventually lost. She is arguably the most powerful Chimera Ant outside the Royal Family in terms of raw power. Her great leading skills, combined with her might and stinger, allowed her to build a small kingdom. She is also fairly perceptive in a fight, realizing that Feitan was unguarded after using Ko and hurling a small quantity of aura at him, which dealt a lot of damage. After transforming, her physical abilities and aura increase greatly, to the point that she becomes impervious to physical attacks.
Poisonous Stinger: Zazan's stinger contains a paralyzing toxin that can incapacitate a pro Hunter in an instant. The effect lasts for several hours, although it can be countered with a small dose of a good general antidote.
Enhanced Strength: Zazan has a high degree of physical strength, kicking Feitan a long distance from her.
Enhanced Speed and Reflexes: Zazan is fast enough to keep up with Feitan at the beginning of their duel. She is particularly quick at striking with her stinger, which she used to intercept Feitan's sword attacks and strike back. She could move so fast that Kalluto had a hard time following her, although at that pint her speed had already been eclipsed by Feitan's. Zazan also has good reactions, receiving praise even from her opponent, whose movements she managed to follow for most of the fight.
Enhanced Durability: Even in her normal form Zazan has a very durable body, more than an average Chimera Ant. A bullet fired at point-blank range had the only effect of putting a scratch on her cheekbone.
Proficient Hand to Hand Combatant: Zazan is skilled in unarmed fighting. She deflected all of Feitan's sword slashes bare-handed and without ever getting hit. She also has a good foot play, as she managed to outmaneuver her quick opponent and move behind his back. More than on her limbs, however, she relies on her stinger to fight, using it both to stab and pierce when attacking, to block or grab when defending. Its length allows her to keep enemies away from her, and its position on her back and flexibility grant her a degree of protection from attacks coming from her blind spots. She also is capable of employing kicks into her fighting style. After transforming, it is shown in the 2011 anime that she resorts mainly on her arms, probably due to the bulk of her body.
Zazan mastered Nen soon after her birth, to the point she could clash with a member of the Phantom Troupe and have the upper hand for a fair part of the fight. She also developed two powerful Hatsu techniques in a very short amount of time. Earlier in the series, she managed to ambush and poison Pokkle, a skilled Hunter who is adept at stealth. It is unclear whether she was employing Zetsu at the time. Zazan is a Transmuter. Her most defining ability consists in changing the qualities of the poison in her stinger. She is probably excellent at using Enhancement, too, since she fought evenly with Feitan. After ripping off her stinger and turning into her hulking form, she threw a a small quantity of aura at him, showing decent skills in Emission as well. It is unknown if she could do it in her normal form. Apparently, she knows how to use Vows and Limitations to strengthen her Nen: in fact, the power she obtains in her monster form needs a great sacrifice. Rather than maiming herself by tearing off her stinger, what she discards is probably her beauty (by transforming) and her ambition of becoming queen (by removing her metasoma she becomes unable to control the transformed humans).
|Zazan's Nen Type: Transmutation|
|Type: Transmutation||Queen Shot (|
|Zazan's stinger contains a special toxin that she can use to transform her human victims into grotesque animal forms that are completely loyal to her. Once stung, the victim will not revert to his or her previous form even if Zazan dies. This ability might also entail Manipulation, since the mutated humans were under her control until her death.|
|Type: Transmutation||Monster Queen Form|
|This technique is Zazan's last resort. Zazan removes her stinger and transforms herself in a grotesque crocodile-like monster. The volume of her aura increases dramatically, as well as her durability. In fact, a sneak attack with Ko from a top-class Nen user like Feitan did no damage to her. Her physical strength also receives a remarkable boost, as she managed to break his arm with a single blow.|
- Zazan resembles Zarbon from Dragon Ball. They share an obsession with outward appearances, preferring a beautiful appearance over a stronger form. After shedding their respective shells, they both become significantly more muscular, but also more hideous, with reptile-like qualities. In exchange, their power increases drastically.
- Zazan dons a Chanel skirt in order to conceal her metasoma from view.
