Vegeta gets a taste of humility when he takes on a seemingly invincible opponent in tonight's Dragon Ball Super.

After Vegeta’s defeat, it’s revealed that “Flawless Hit’s” super speed is actually a little more complicated than that. It’s in fact a “Time Skip” technique that allows Hit to essentially freeze time while he’s still able to move for a fraction of a second. Hit continues to abuse this ability against Goku, but when it looks like he’s going to surrender and become another of Hit’s many victims, Goku surprises everyone.

Observant viewers have noticed that Hit has carefully been studying his opponents during their many fights so he can learn their techniques and cultivate a plan to use against them. It’s exactly why Goku and Vegeta have been holding back in a lot of these battles in order to retain some secrecy to their fighting. Goku turns the tables on Hit by doing the exact same thing against him. Goku has to take a beating in the process, but it allows him to understand how Hit’s “Time Skip” move works, which is the key to taking him down. Jaco and the King of the Universe help break down Hit’s “Time Skip” technique by explaining that it basically allows him to freeze time for only 0.1 seconds, but that’s still enough time for Hit to gain the upper hand. The secret lies in Goku predicting Hit’s future movements, so even with a time skip, Goku’s still ahead of the curve.

Goku’s confidence doesn’t shake Hit. In fact, Hit’s certain that any evasion on Goku’s part is simply luck and that it’d be impossible to figure out how his ability works in that little time.

Clearly Hit has never met someone like Goku before though and he quickly proves that his dodging is no fluke. With all of the games out of the way, Goku is determined to have a real battle here where neither of them hold back in any way. With the pleasantries and parlor tricks now over with, the stage is set for arguably the most explosive battle of this tournament. Universe 7 gets one step closer to elimination this episode and it looks like this showdown between Goku and Hit might be the final fight of this satisfying display of power between universes. 

“Engage the Assassin Hit!!” is another enjoyable episode of Dragon Ball Super that offers up some fantastic fight scenes while also finding the time for some rather humorous non sequiturs. Jaco and Goku’s “Invisible Man” digression is some fun nonsense. As is the discussion that Hit should maybe be arrested for his special ability, but Goku insists that Jaco leave him alone so he can still fight him. Jaco remains to be the delightful wild card that seems to work well with any character. Any time he shares a few lines of dialogue with someone new I instantly want to see them patrolling the galaxy in a spinoff together. 

Additionally, like many of the fights throughout this tournament, this episode helps ease the audience into things while also demystifying Goku and Vegeta’s latest enemy. Goku is ready to move onto business and it looks like Dragon Ball Super is as well, with the next few episodes promising an action-packed conclusion. 

Or maybe Goku gets knocked out at the top of next week’s episode and it’s just a Monaka showcase for 20 minutes.
