In battle, my people are the most graceful in the world. I swear upon the spirits and my tribe... you can never defeat me.
~ Bonolenov.

Bonolenov is a villain from the manga and anime Hunter x Hunter. He is a member of the Phantom Troupe


Bonolenov was born into the Gyudondond tribe. From birth, his body was pierced to create holes, in order to use with his combat technique. At some point, he was recruited by Chrollo Lucilfer into the Phantom Troupe.

Bonolenov was with the rest of the troupe in Yorknew city as they planned to attack the mafia's auction. Unlike the other troupe members, he did not play a large role in this story arc. He stayed behind when the troupe attacked the auction and Uvogin was captured. He was present when Gon and Killua were captured and brought to the hideout. 

While Bonolenov helped massacre the mafia, his role was not shown as much as the other troupe members. After Chrollo was captured, he witnessed Pakunoda sacrifice herself in order to use memory bomb to give information about Kurapika to the original members of the Troupe.

In Greed Island, Bolonelov helped recruit a Nen Exorcist to Heal Chrollo.

When the Chimera Ant Zazan took over Meteor City, Bonolenov joined the troupe to defeat the ants. He battled against one of the ants, and unraveled his bandages to use his dance technique, which involved air travelling through the holes in his body to attack his opponent. When his opponent mocked his tribe, Bolonelov used a powerful attack called Jupiter in order to kill his opponent. He then watched Feitan kill Zazan.

After Hisoka  killed Shalnark and Kortopi, Bolonelov joined the rest  of the troop to hunt Hisoka on the Black Whale. He and Shizuku joined Chrollo to look for Hisoka. He criticized Shizuku for suggesting that everyone written in Chrollo's book dies (which would mean that Chrollo is responsible for Shalnark's death).


Bonolenov looks like a mummy, and is covered from head to foot in bandages. He wears boxing gloves. When the bandages are removed, it is seen that his body is pierced with several holes.
