ID: Non Licensed Hunter
Personality:Meruem initially is seen as a cruel and violent leader. The Queen's intention to give birth to a perfect offspring is reflected in Meruem's mentality, with the Ant being haughty towards all. He speaks in an eloquent manner and has refined tastes for one of his species. He considers himself superior to all other forms of life and feels no concern for his dying mother after his birth. Meruem is also merciless, killing and cannibalizing any Chimera Ant he deems as disrespectful. Though he could still hold respect towards the strong, complimenting Neferpitou for surviving an attack that had killed many without much damage at all.

He was able to survive the ultra-powerful explosion of the Old Man's Rose that was released after Netero's death and despite his body being nearly destroyed in the process, however, he was still alive after the fatal attack.

Nen Ability's: Aura Synthesis Meruem's initial ability gives him strength through consumption. Meruem's aura grows every time he devours a user of Nen, with their aura synthesizing to his own.
Metamorphosis:After absorbing large parts of Shaiapouf and Menthuthuyoupi, he was able to use Menthuthuyoupi's ability to transform--including gaining wings to fly. This allows him to fly at speed that Shaiapouf considered would take 15 minutes in a mere 5 minutes.
Rage Blast:After absorbing large parts of Shaiapouf and Menthuthuyoupi, he was able to use Menthuthuyoupi's ability to use "Rage" in a concentrated blast of aura.
Photon:After absorbing large parts of Shaiapouf and Menthuthuyoupi, he was able to use and evolve Shaiapouf's ability Spritual Message. This secondary ability allowed him to transmute his aura into photons. Each photon maintains his aura, allowing Meruem to measure the shape, quality, emotion, and other informational content about the things the photons interact with, and as stated by Welfin and Shaiapouf, he can know everything, even lies. The precision of the information he can gather depends on the quantity of photons directed at the object of interest. Meruem deploys these photons in his En in a flash, and then is able to instantly go to anything the photons reach.
Background:Meruem is the next to last ant born to the Queen and is the Chimera Ant King. He is born prematurely, forcibly birthed through rupturing through her abdomen. According to the sociology of Chimera Ants, upon the birth of the King, the Royal Guards will solely follow his commands and he will leave the nest to find various creatures to mate with and impregnate in order to create the next Chimera Ant Queen. Soon after he was born, Meruem leaves his original nest in NGL with his Royal Guards in search of a place to start his kingdom. His name means "the light that shines on everything."
