Chimera ant is originally from the Dark Continent. In the Dark Continent you can find huge Chimera ant that is more than 2 Meters long. This creature is very dangerous and can consume multiple times their own weight in a day. It's not strange for the Chimera ant to eat their favorite species to extinction. The Chimera ant has a hierarchy similar to that of a military force and this hierarchy is based on strength, as you move up in that hierarchy you will find stronger Chimera Ants except for the queen who is at the top of the Chimera ants hierarchy along with the king but her strength is not even close to that of the king or his royal guards. The next level in the hierarchy is the Royal guards who move under the King as soon as he is born. Then you will have the squadron leaders who each have officers below them. Then you have Peons and finally Drudges which are the weakest and the lowest rank in the Chimera Ants hierarchy.


Chimera ants are unique when it comes to reproducing and that's what makes it dangerous. The queen reproduce in a unique fashion called "Phagogenesis" which means that if the queen consume a specific species or multiple species then she laid the eggs. the offspring will get features from those consumed species in order to lay these eggs. Each meal gives the Queen the ability to produce five more Chimera Ants. That's the main reason why the Chimera ant will eat their favorite species to extinction which is to get those good traits of that species for the next generation of the Chimera ants.



Meruem is the king of chimera ants. He is ruthless and demand respect from others. whoever dare to disrespect him will face death as a punishment. The moment he was born he killed two of the Chimera Ants squadron leaders and feasted on them. He was the first and the only Chimera Ant that have eaten another Chimera ant. Once he was born, all the royal guards moved under him and became his loyal subordinates. They have been so loyal to Meruem to the point they would lay their life for him and willing to be killed by him if it's required. During their duty as his royal guards, all of the guards at one point and for a different reason has been struck by Meruem. The first to be struck was Neferpitou with an attack was meant to kill him. Being able to take that attack and live was something Meruem respected as he used to only respect the strong.

Meruem easily mastered Chess, Shogi, Go, and Gungi and he was able to defeat world champion in each game with ease expect for Gungi that he failed to beat the world champion regardless of how many games he played against her. Komogi is the only player that Meruem wasn't able to defeat but he was very skilled to the point he made Komogi the world champion of Gungi improve at the game in order to keep beating him. Later, Meruem started to care for Komogi and realized there are different types of strength apart from physical strength which was the only type of strength he cared about. At the end of one of their Gungi matches, Meruem asked Komogi about her name and when she responded she asked him in return about his name. This has struck the King very deeply as he does not know his name and even after he consulted with his royal guards he wasn't satisfied that he does not know his own name.

During the fight against Netero, Meruem wasn't willing to fight against him and instead he wanted to exchange words. The only thing that got the King interested to fight against Netero is to find out his own name. During the fight Meruem commanded Netero for his strength and admired him and his efforts that resulted in this demonstration of skill and power. Meruem had a simple plan against Netero which is to keep attacking until he is able to land an attack on Netero who kept defending and attacking Meruem with his 100-Type Guanyin Bodhisattva. After thousands of hits finally Meruem was able to chop off Netero's leg and then after a while he was able to get his arm as well. Netero activated his Zero Hand but it wasn't able to damage Meruem much and finally The King came to know that his name is Meruem. Though there was one more surprise for Meruem and it was the first time for him to feel fear is when Netero comits a suicide and activated the explosion of Poor Man's Rose which eventually resulted in the death of Meruem along with Shaiapouf and Menthuthuyoupi.
