It's impossible. A stealth character would blow up Earth with a ranged shot from a spaceship and end the series. They need only be saiyan arc Vegeta level.

Stealth assassins with instability will be a good idea ,like the omni kings attendants have instability and appear to have military like discipline, so giving them stealth techniques will be a good character design .

Pretty sure OP meant a character that uses stealth in battle. Like becoming invisible or disrupting his enemies senses etc

We might get something like this in the up coming omniversal tourney.

We already have a stealth character. His name is Sorbet's ring.

as long as the person has ki they can be detected and dealt with. So them being stealth wouldn't matter

I think Hit could have been that kind of guy, but now he seems to have mellowed out, though if there was a multiversal threat, that the strongest fighters in each universe had to team up to beat, perhaps we could have Hit doing something stealthy and assassiny.

In that sense, we've had plenty of characters using stealth earlier in the series -- either through suppressing ki so low that nobody could sense them in order to avoid enemies (Krillin and Gohan on Namek), or just by virtue of having energy that nobody can sense in the first place (Dr. Gero running to his lab after Piccolo and Vegeta demonstrate that they could kick his ass.)

Imperfect Cell was pretty good at this, too. By suppressing his ki down to next-to-nothing and running from place to place rather than using ki to fly, he was able to absorb entire cities without the heroes catching on until after the fact... and even then only because of a news report! Even after they became aware of his existence nobody could track him well enough to prevent him from absorbing even more humans and getting powerful enough to surpass Piccolo.

They could have asked Goku to teleport them there. Of course he would need to sense ki, but as long as they knew the direction to the latest city, Cell was reportedly attacking, Goku might just be capable of sensing something there.

What does that even mean?
I've come across that term so many times online in some kind of meme context(like based God), but I don't know, what it's supposed to mean.

It's a meme. Used ironically.

Assassin. He should be deadly silent for his speed.

Stealth character.

Instantly thought of Krillin on Namek. Seriously the dude was basically Solid Snake until the Ginyu Force arrived.

"Based" pretty much just means "on crack," I know that much. Was unaware that it had also become part of a "meme" recently, but that's probably a good thing for my sanity.

Hit is the closest we can get. Theoretically, he could be able to use his time skip ability to quickly kill someone and make it look like he did nothing.
