During the "Greed Island" arc, we learn of a nen user who can remove other's nen. When he got the Bomber's nen removed, the creature he summoned to remove the nen had to stick to him until he touched the Bomber and say the "magic words."

Kurapika's chain needle is more powerful than the Bomber's nen, yet when Chrollo got exorcised and he appears to be unscathed. There should have been some form of price Chrollo paid to get Kurapika's insane ability removed.

Do we ever find out what happened here?

  • Does it say anything about this part in the manga? Or is there other source material that touches on it?

  • I remember that chrollo began to wander because he couldn't use nen for a while as a price such as when gon has to choose after the 13th chairman arc. Commented Oct 5, 2016 at 17:24
  • @MakaAlbarn do you have a source?

  • I believe it was after the Phantom troupe went looking for him that it is revealed during the chimera ant or 13th chairman arc. I maybe mistaken but I sorry I don't have a definite source. Commented Oct 6, 2016 at 3:44

Chrollo successfully had his chain removed by the Greed Island Exorcist.

He doesn't need to pay a price except whatever he paid to hire the exorcist to help him. Gon only lost his Nen because he violated a Contract, and even then it isn't confirmed that he is completely nen free.

Chrollo can still wield his book, and he used so very efficiently when fighting with Hisoka.

  • As near as I can tell, Gon added to his contact - he would trade everything to defeat Pitou, even if he was never to use nen again. He gained the power at the cost he expressed.
