The classic series, Hunter X Hunter, is a favorite among many anime fans. Originally aired in 1999 and remade in 2011, the anime is one that is appreciated worldwide. Most fans would agree that the best aspect of the series is the lovable and complex characters. All of the characters have unique qualities that make them appealing and relatable. They also have many different character traits, but one that viewers may overlook is their difference in ages. From infants to elders, here are the ages of all the main characters in Hunter X Hunter. The youngest, yet most frightening, character in the series is Meruem, King of the Chimera Ants and son of the Chimera Ant Queen. Despite his age, Meruem was recognized as one of the most intimidatingly powerful characters, especially after he was engaged in an epic battle with Netero, resulting in both of their deaths. He was merely 40 days old when he died, but as the offspring of a being rumored to come from the Dark Continent, Meruem's strength was often unmatched. The main protagonist, Gon Freecss, was introduced to viewers at the age of 12. At his ripe, young age, Gon followed in his father's footsteps, left home, and set off to become a Hunter. As he grew older and developed into a young teen, he went through several trials and tribulations and made many friends and foes along the way. By the end of the series, Gon had aged quite a bit and by then, he had earned his Hunter's License and turned 14 years old.
