Leolio is initially presented as a very selfish narcissist who emphasizes material wealth. Despite his claims that he only dreams of money, he eventually reveals to Kurapika that his dream is to one day become a doctor in order to help the poor. He believes that all things in the world (life, dreams, etc.) can be bought and that becoming a Hunter will provide him with the funds he needs for medical school. Because of his first spat with Kurapika, as well as the test on the way to the navigator's cabin, it seems that he has a sensitivity towards those who do not take him seriously or treat him with contempt. His real priorities seem to be his friends first, then his dream of becoming a great doctor, and everything else after.
Leolio is not the type to balk and retreat when faced with overwhelming forces in battle. He is a trustworthy and loyal ally who greatly values the bonds of friendship, he acts as the "big brother" of the group. He is often seen as a comedian: Kirua sometimes makes fun of him about his age, but he swears that his appearance is that of a simple teenager. His impulsive and impetuous character has sometimes caused trouble for the people around him. Another talent he has is his ability to charge through many situations. It could be considered that his closest relationship in the group is with Kurapika because they spent the most time together.
At the end of the York Shin City arc, Senritsu claims that he has "the nicest heartbeat in town", saying that "it's warm and fuzzy" and that he would make a better doctor than a Hunter.
Much of Leolio's past is unknown. He once lost a close friend to a debilitating disease. Leolio feels remorse, that he could not save his friend, even though the disease was curable, but required an operation, which he could not afford. Thus, he aspires to become a doctor - one who not only cures the sick of their diseases, but also one who works voluntarily for people who cannot afford it. In this light, his interest in the superficial grows, eventually joining Hunter's examination in the pursuit of great wealth, for a more noble justification - the money he earns is used not only to fund his medical school tuition, but also to pay for medicine and other miscellaneous expenses when treating those who cannot afford it.
Skills and Competencies
Leolio is a fairly skilled fighter using his suitcase and a knife as weapons. However, his fighting skills are not known as he has never participated in a real battle. He is moderately intelligent, although, like Gon, he is very impetuous and impulsive, with a well-built physique. Netero says that the skills of Leolio and Bodoro were of equal strength, while Bodoro had a more global experience, Leolio had more fighting skills. His strength increased after he learned the basics of Nen. As a member of the Zodiacs, he now has more authority than most Hunters. In addition, he is probably considered capable of surviving in the Dark Continent.
Increased strength: Leolio is physically stronger than Gon and Kurapika, as he could open the 2nd entrance of the door of the verification that weighed 8 tons, while Gon and Kurapika could only open the 1st door . He also beat the arm of a massive man against whom he was arm wrestling on the table on which the competition took place in an instant and without effort. During the election of the 13th President Hunter, he was able to destroy a table with a punch. He was also able to hit a powerful Hunter like Jin and injure him, even though the former Zodiac had let himself be hit. During the movie Red Phantom, he also managed to deflect most of Pairo's sword attacks effectively with a knife and managed to take them with his bare hands.
High stamina: Leolio has a lot of stamina, as he was able to do the first test of the exam which was to run at least more than 80 km, which is also enhanced because of his determination to become a Hunter.
Master of Knife Handling: This is the weapon of choice that he takes whenever he is about to engage in a battle which can imply that he is very versatile with it. He was also able to block most of Pairo's sword attacks effectively, while the swords should have been more effective.

Leolio is a user of the show. During the arc of York Shin City, it was shown that he has only mastered the Ten, and will learn more basic techniques with Gon and Kirua.In addition, his own Hatsu is yet to be developed. However, about 11 months later, during the arc of the 13th President Hunter's election, Leolio is seen to have improved his nen ability. His nen ability was designed to allow him to operate on patients, locating abnormalities, extracting blood clots, tumors, etc.
Medical Knowledge: Leolio has skills regarding medicine and other useful information that he learned in his quest to become a doctor. A navigator at Hunter's exam notes that Leolio's ability to give first aid was the best he had ever seen.
Arc of the Hunter exam
Leolio, candidate No. 403, makes his first appearance aboard the ship that comes from Whale Island, Gon's hometown, to a Hunter exam test site. He, Gon and Kurapika, are the only 3 candidates who are not affected by the brutal storm of the previous day. The captain reveals that he is an examiner and asks them why they want to become Hunters. With some reluctance, Kurapika answers that he wants to capture the Ghost Brigade. Leolio, on the other hand, replies to the captain that he is attracted to the material goods provided when one is a Hunter. The two have a quarrel over their different opinions and decide to end it with a fight on the bridge while another storm rages. When they are about to start, a crew member falls into the sea, due to a broken piece of wood. Gon jumps on the deck to catch him and in turn falls into the sea but is caught by Kurapika and Leolio. After the incident, they apologize for and make peace. Seeing that the captain laughs, he decides to drop the trio at the nearest place to the examination, Zaban.

In the city of Zaban, Gon, Kurapika and Leolio go to a tree on a mountain that the captain told them to go to. They meet a group of people on the way and a very old lady, who is also an examiner, asks them a question that they have only 5 seconds to answer. The question is such a dilemma that none of them can give an answer before the time is up. Getting angry, Leolio picks up a wooden stick and attacks it but is blocked by Kurapika, who explains that he succeeded because keeping silent is the right answer to this question. The old lady then tells them to go to a house in the forest to find a couple, who will be their navigators if they consider the trio qualified. Upon entering the house, they see an injured man lying on the ground and a woman being held hostage by a Kiriko. The monster runs away as soon as he sees them. Telling Leolio to take care of her husband, Kurapika and Gon chase after him and force him to let go of the woman. Kurapika catches her and notices the strange tattoos on her hands and face. Leolio arrives and says that there is nothing to fear for the husband.
Kurapika suddenly hits Leolio in the face with his wooden sword. It turns out that this Leolio is a Kiriko in disguise. After the monster runs away, he asks the woman who she really is, for whom the answer is a strange smile. Meanwhile Gon is able to tell 2 identical Kirikos to aspect their difference, which surprises them a lot. The two Kirikos, the husband and wife, who are in fact their son and daughter, explain to the trio how they qualified for the next test - Kurapika for his vast knowledge, Leolio for his good medical skills and confidence, and Gon for his movement and extraordinary observation - and guide them to the other test site.
