Having won three matches in a row, Vegeta’s next opponent is Universe 6’s final team member, the assassin Hit. Even though Hit is doing his best to conceal his ki, Vegeta can still tell from what little he can sense that Hit is definitely strong. Regardless, Vegeta is determined not to lose, no matter what. Beerus wonders where he has heard the name “Hit” before, and Whis explains that Hit is apparently the greatest assassin in Universe 6, renowned for never letting a target escape. Vegeta starts off the fight immediately transforming into Super Saiyan Blue. He criticizes Hit’s small fighting stance, but both he, Goku, and Piccolo realize that this stance leaves no openings, further proof of Hit’s strength. Vegeta thinks to himself that it will not be easy to approach Hit, but the two of them cannot just stand around facing each other forever. When the fight starts and Hit attacks, Vegeta initially judges his speed to be no problem, but is suddenly knocked back. Shocked, Vegeta realizes he could not see the moment Hit punched him.
Hit matter-of-factly tells Vegeta to surrender, but Vegeta thinks he is getting too carried away after one lucky punch. This time he means business! They start to fight again, but with the same results: Vegeta is knocked around without even being able to see Hit’s attacks, though he can still see Hit’s other movements. Vegeta continues to ponder his strategy: no matter how fast Hit may be, if he can see the moment Hit starts to move then he ought to be able to manage some kind of defense. Yet Vegeta continues to find himself helpless to block against Hit’s assault. He suddenly flies off to put some distance between them, but this proves no more effective: Hit is able to instantly close the gap and knock him back, immediately returning to his original position. All of this happens too fast for Bulma to see at all, and she wonders why Vegeta suddenly went flying for no reason. Hit asks if Vegeta has gotten the picture yet, and again tells him to surrender.
On the sidelines Goku asks Jaco if he can see, but apparently Hit’s attacks are too fast even for Jaco’s amazing eyesight. It also seems that Hit is aiming solely at Vegeta’s vital points, just as you would expect of a great assassin. Beerus is amazed that Champa has this kind of trump card on his team. Back in the ring, Vegeta is annoyed at his inability to even touch Hit. And yet he remains standing even after taking so many of Hit’s blows, seemingly indicating that despite his fantastic speed, Hit’s attacks are relatively weak. In a straight-up fight it would just be a matter of punching him. With that in mind, the next time Hit attacks, Vegeta manages to grab his arm. This way, Hit cannot possibly dodge his attack! Yet once again, Hit somehow does, and counterattacks… this time with blows that are not so “weak”. Vegeta is knocked out cold, and after Hit confirms with the referee that he is not allowed to kill Vegeta, he is declared the winner.
Hit praises Vegeta, saying that he is the first person to survive so many of his attacks. Trunks and the others are concerned for Vegeta’s well-being, and Goku tells Kuririn to feed him a Senzu. Jaco points out that Hit is not merely super-humanly fast; he disappears so completely that there must be something more to it than that. Goku wonders if he turns invisible, but Jaco says in that case they would still be able to see his clothes. Goku then wonders if perhaps Hit uses some form of teleportation similar to his own, though Goku himself would not be able to teleport as freely as Hit seems to. At this point the Galactic King pipes up, suggesting that Hit might be using “Time-Skip”…
According to rumor, certain people have the ability to “skip” time ahead, although only by one-tenth of a second. Simply put, from their perspective they are able to stop time for everyone besides themselves. Even limited to one-tenth of a second, for extremely fast people this is still ample time to give them a substantial edge in a fight. Bulma reminds Jaco of the galactic laws against precisely this sort of time control, and demands that he arrest Hit, but Jaco refuses on the grounds that he does not want to die. The Galactic King likewise prefers to pretend he has seen nothing. Goku is fine with this though: after all, if they arrested Hit then he would not get to fight him! Bulma is exasperated at them all. Meanwhile Whis is surprised to see that there is someone besides him who can manipulate time, and Beerus thinks that this could spell trouble.
The referee announces that Goku shall be Hit’s next opponent. He asks Jaco and the Galactic King for advice, but none of them have any ideas. Vegeta likewise simply tells Goku to “do his best”, although frankly he is not too optimistic. Beerus thinks that Whis must surely know some way of countering Hit’s technique, and orders him to tell Goku. However, Whis says it will be good training for Goku to develop a way of solving this problem on his own. Beerus protests that this is not “training”! If Goku loses, then… Whis interrupts, reminding Beerus that they still have Monaka, whom he calls the “strongest in Universe 7″… although with noticeable sarcasm. Beerus chews Whis out for teasing him like this despite “knowing the truth”, and Whis mockingly wonders if Beerus had in fact lied to Goku and Vegeta in order to motivate them and simply brought along a “total amateur”. Overhearing all this, Piccolo realizes to his horror that Goku is their only hope at this point.
In the ring, the referee announces the start of Goku and Hit’s fight, but Goku remains in his regular form. Hit asks if he hass forgotten to transform, but Goku explains that his transformation uses up stamina, so he is saving it until after he has found a way of defeating Hit. Basically, he is stalling for time. Hit says Goku must be pretty young to reveal his strategy so matter-of-factly, but Goku snaps back that he is much older than he looks. To this, Hit reveals that he is over 1,000 years old, which causes Goku to start acting much more politely toward his “senior”. As they start battling, Goku likewise cannot see Hit’s attacks, and he is hitting hard now too. After this goes on for a while, Hit tells Goku to give up. No matter how tough Goku’s body may be, he will not be able to survive so many repeated blows to his vital points. But Goku refuses, saying that he has an idea for countering Hit. Indeed, the next time Hit attacks, Goku successfully blocks it!
Hit thinks this is merely a fluke, but Goku repeats the feat, even managing to land some attacks on Hit. Despite all this, Jaco admits that he is still unable to see Hit’s movements. In fact, Goku himself still cannot see Hit’s attack movements either. Instead, he is simply predicting where Hit’s attack will come from, something possible due to the short length of the Time-Skip. Hearing this, Hit snickers and says that now he can finally fight seriously. Goku likewise says he will go all-out now too, and prepares to power up.
