Dark Continent in Hunter x Hunter: What we know


The Dark Continent is the greatest mystery in the Hunter x Hunter series. It is a vast area that surrounds the Known World, which is only a small portion of Lake Mobius in the Dark Continent. Entering the Dark Continent is dangerous and often deadly due to the Five Great Calamities and massive creatures that inhabit it. Despite this, Hunters are eager to explore and uncover the wonders of the Dark Continent.

The expeditions led by Isaac Netero and his son, Beyond Netero, to explore the Dark Continent were extremely challenging and only a few survived. Beyond Netero led another expedition to search for the alchemy plant called Metallion, but many of his team members contracted a deadly disease called Zobae, leaving only six survivors. Currently, Beyond Netero is leading another expedition with King Nasubi Hui Guo Rou during the Succession War arc.

Lake Mobius separates the Known World from the Dark Continent, and any creature that attempts to cross it drowns before reaching land. It is unknown what other defenses the lake has.

The Chimera Ants are a species native to the Dark Continent that were brought to the Known World, and they became a great threat to humanity. The Queen Chimera Ant gave birth to some of the strongest characters in Hunter x Hunter, such as King Meruem and Neferpitou.

The Five Great Calamities are five specimens brought back from the Dark Continent that pose a significant threat to humanity, and each has been given an A-level threat rating by the Hunter Association. Pap is a parasitic beast capable of controlling humans, and it guards the Unmanned Rock, which is found in the same rugged mountain range. Brion is a plant that is incredibly toxic and able to control other living beings.
