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. 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. 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. 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. 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? 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?
