    Quick warning, OP will be long.


    So this thread came about because I was having a discussion in a different section about Hisoka. It turns out my perception of the character was different then some others.:wot

    The gist of it is this, when Hisoka sported erections I always thought it was a representation of his excitement fighting the person rather then him actually being attracted to them.

    Now I'm aware there are scenes like this.
    X

    But I always thought they were more of a play on Hisoka's predatory nature then him really wanting their ass.
    :mikebatman


    I kinda view Hisoka as a perverse version of Goku. They both love to fight, but Hisoka's battles arouse him.
    I don't necessarily think that translates into him wanting to have sex with his opponents though. :hm

    To my understanding the only person he showed an interest in sleeping with was Machi as he actually asked her to do so.

    With Gon he wants him to grow as a fighter so they can eventually fight. So his scwing moments with him make sense because he sees the potential in Gon to become a strong opponent.

    Same with Killua. And a lot of people would then point to the instance where Hisoka talked about "doing" him, but wasn't that just to provoke Illumi?

    X

    In moments like the above with Illumi, or when he's walking behind Gon & Killua; I think its a case of him knowing the perception people have of him and simply playing along.
    :mlpshrug

    But in other scenarios where he's face to face with someone he's fighting(or wants to fight) is he really interested in them sexually, or is it the battle that's a turn on?
    :geg

    Because let's say that Gon, and Killua possessed no Nen or potential to match Hisoka. Would Hisoka still act predatory towards them, or would they not even register on his radar?

    So I was searching on the HxH subreddit and found a post hitting on the same exact topic I was.
    :mikebatman

    Insightful analysis. Hisoka's arousal during fights seems to be a real life fetish called Agonophilia.

    X

    The major difference between that and what Hisoka's does, is that he kills those he fights. Which in hindsight seems to negate the notion that he wants to have sex with these people as the reddit user explains. :hm

    I think Hisoka's interactions with Chrollo is the biggest roadblock to the notion of him being a Pedo. During their latest bout he acted much the same way he did when going against Gon.

    X

    Interestingly, no one looks at the above image, and says Hisoka has a thing for Chrollo.
    I think that's because the average reader understands at least subconsciously that Hisoka simply loves fighting.

    It's not the person Hisoka cares about as much as it is the fun he can have with them. He himself illustrates this when thinking about his "toys".
    X

    He gets aroused by fighting, and fixates on the "toys" that will give him the most "fun".

    When he thinks his fight with Chrollo won't be satisfactory he loses his arousal.

    Like when Chrollo revealed he couldn't use Nen.
    X


    Or when he thinks Chrollo will throw the fight.
    X


    But when Chrollo reassures him of his intentions to kill him, Hisoka perks back up.

    I do, actually. And it's not just because of that image.

    Excellent post, by the way.

    I think it's pretty unanimous at this point that Hisoka is powersexual and a sadomasochist. Either way he's a freak lol.

    @Zef But your description of Hisoka being agonphilic certainly fits

    Well great interpretation Zef, you are right. He is definitely attracted to fighting, but i also think he is a pedo.

    There was a moment when he saw Killua's brother who was with Phantom Troupe and said that he looks ,,appetizing" and he got a boner from looking at Killua and Gon saying they are growing nicely. I think he loves fighting AND kids that show promise of future enemies. And that shit with calling Gon and Killua ,,unripe fruits"- he is clearly into underage group.


    So im voting for both here.

    If Hisoka was a pedo, he would have done the boys times ago as he had the chance. He's not attracted to them in that sense.
