Ging is definitely one of the strongest and most knowledgeable hunters in the series. However, when facing Meruem – King of the Chimera Ants, he falls short. From the time of his birth,he was already the most powerful character in the series.

He can also generally mimic other people’s abilities as long as he has been hit with it. Even this extraordinary ability is just natural talent and not a Nen ability. This is seen when he easily copied Leorio’s Warping Punch perfectly at the first attempt.

While the extent of his abilities is still unknown, he is definitely one of the strongest hunters in the series.
