|~ Hit first meeting Goku|
Hit, known as "Hit the Infallible" and as the "Legendary Assassin" is the major supporting character of Dragonball Super. He is the most powerful member of Team Universe 6.
He is voiced by Kazuhiro Yamaji in the Japanese version, who also some voiced by Silver Fang from One-Punch Man series, Wolverine from X-Men film series, Deckard Shaw, from Fast and Furious film series, Frank Martin from The Transporter film series, Nico from Rio film series, Charlie Kenton from Real Steel, and Gill from Finding Nemo film. And by Aaron Roberts and Matthew Mercer in the English version.
Hit is a tall, well-built alien with purple skin, flattened ears, a bald head, and red eyes. He wears a long, dark purple, blue, and grey coat. He wears a dark cyan undershirt, dark purple elbow and knee pads, and dark purple wrist guards. He has a dark cyan belt with a yellow buckle. His pants are dark cyan and he wears a pair of dark purple boots with black toe-and-heel armor.
Hit is known to be stoic and very composed, frequently appearing emotionless and indifferent to most events. An expert in his craft, Hit shows great self-assurance and courage in any challenge presented before him. Hit also seems to be confident in his abilities. Showing a very ruthless attitude, he is straight to the point and speaks no more than necessary. To which, Hit will carry out his actions, no matter whom his targets may be, nor can he be bribed or convinced to turn away from the assignment. More to his unwavering commitment and resolve, even when at a disadvantage, Hit refuses to back down from the challenge, choosing to face the opponent head-on, as noted by Cabba. Stemming from his anti-social nature, he apparently is somewhat unfamiliar with certain forms of showing respect, as he was slightly surprised when Goku bows to him. At the same time, he is a very astute and instinctive individual, constantly perceiving the situation at hand confirming how best to handle it.
While an assassin, Hit is shown to be very honorable, as he will revealing himself to the target as he does not believe in striking from behind and and explaining why he is present. Against one he is not required to kill, he will show mercy, offering his opponents a chance to surrender and use no more strength than absolutely necessary. While solemn in attitude, Hit believes in being fair, showing his respect by action as he allowed Goku to stand up because Goku helped him improve his Time-Skip. He is also shown to be a team-player as during the Tournament of Power, he saved his teammate Caulifla from elimination.
A warrior at heart, Hit is shown to enjoy a true challenge, smiling from facing Goku's own competitive nature and sportsmanship, developing respect to him as the first person to make him fight seriously. Even more, he showed said respect as he gave Goku his approval with a friendly fist bump. Even on mission, should the opponent prove capable enough, his hardened demeanor will give way somewhat to all his martial artist spirit to revel in the competition.
Despite his profession, he does not approve of the idea of people being demeaned and treated as pawns. This is proven after Goku intentionally lost their fight to show the Gods of Destruction that they were in control of their own actions. Hit followed with Goku's method and let Team Universe 7 win by feigning defeat in the final match. Even more, he surprisingly attempts to avoid killing those he feels undeserving, as he offers Goku the option to vanish while he would report the target dead. After having clinically killed Goku for a few seconds, he was willing to part ways peacefully, as he technically completed his task, until Goku insisted they finish the fight. Hit is also shown very understanding, as after learning that Goku placed the contract on himself to face Hit at his best, the assassin smiled and acknowledged his further respect of the Saiyan, leaving with no regrets and patiently wait for their next fight.
In Xenoverse 2, when he is, apparently forcibly, as he is clearly not amused at the prospect, an instructor of the Time Patroller Academy, Hit has very high standards, requiring all 6 Advancement Tests completed and graduation to Super Class in order to get him to train. He expresses clear shock at how many members of the Time Patrol wants to train under him but this does not change his irritation and strictness. However, once the Future Warrior passes, even though he notes they are still raw, he clearly praised them for their determination. While often lecturing them, those lectures are meant to motivate rather than hinder. He is still strict whenever they failed, apparently, as he himself said, due to believing they are just as much of a failure as any other student he has taken on but he will praise their improvement and ability to survive. At the end of his lessons, he has come to fully acknowledge his pupil's prowess, noting if they are an Earthling that not only are they extremely powerful, they also have the most necessary tools of combat; sharp at making quick decisions in combat and superb adaptability and also stating he genuinely believes he has created a monster. He even thanks the Warrior for allowing him to evolve and expresses intriguement at the idea of them both facing one another.
Born over 1000 years ago, Hit has been an assassin for a long time. He is famous for his highly efficient work at his job as all of his past assassinations were successfully completed. His signature for completing each assignment is to kill the target in a single strike.
Dragon Ball Super
Universe 6 Saga
Hit was one of those chosen by Vados to participate in the Tournament of the Universal Association of Martial Arts, in which they would face the Beerus team and determine who would stay with Planet Earth. On the day of the tournament, Hit appears in the ring along with his teammates, who were Cabba, Frost, Botamo and Auta Magetta. He would pass along to his teammates the written test, which when surpassed would allow them to participate in the tournament. Hit would not show any interest in the first combats, so he simply folds his arms and closes his eyes, until in Goku's fight against Frost, the first becomes Super Saiyan, Hit observes but quickly closes his eyes again. He did not even notice or become interested when his partner, Frost, was disqualified for cheating. Finally, when Frost is defeated by Vegeta, Frost tries to steal the reward that Vados had prepared for if they won the tournament, but Hit stops him and takes him unconscious towards his seat. Then he would watch the fight between Cabba and Vegeta when the latter becomes Super Saiyan Blue, then looks at Goku as he was staring at him.

Vegeta walks away and prepares to launch a wave of ki, but the hit man moves quickly and hits him in the stomach, surprising Prince Saiyajin. Vegeta is surprised and remains thinking about how to defeat him, Hit asks if he has already thought, the Saiyajin replies that he only has to hit, then launches in attack but Hit hits him in the stomach, however, at that time Vegeta takes him by the arm and punches him in the face, but Hit punches him again in the stomach, which leaves him stunned on the floor. Then Hit asks the Arbitrator if it is against the rules to kill him, he responds affirmatively, so the hit man asks what he can do since the Saiyajin will not surrender and will not be able to do anything in that state, so the Referee gives As a winner to Hit, who tells Vegeta that he is the first to survive his attacks.
Then it would be Goku's turn, Hit tells him not to forget to transform, but the Saiyajin tells him that the transformation tires him and that he should gain time, Hit replies that he did not expect him to tell him his strategy and that he is very young, To which Goku tells him that he must be his age but Hit denies it affirming that he has more than a thousand years. Then Goku starts attacking him, but hits the time for 0.1 seconds and counteracts the attacks, then advises Goku to surrender, but Goku tells him that he already has a clue how to defeat him. Goku suddenly manages to stop an attack of Hit and even arrives to scratch it, surprising to all, soon it was able to continue to block attacks of Hit and even to attack it. He then tells him that he already knows that he can stop time, so he only has to predict the move he will make 0.1 second later, then both prepare to fight with everything.
Goku asks if he can follow the speed and launches to a fast attack. After several attacks, the saiyajin asks if he does not think about using his temporary jump attack, the killer asks if that is all the potential he has. Then, Hit is put in position of attack and raises its power, surprising to all, later it launches to the attack, but Goku equally could stop it and to counterattack. Later, Vados explains that Hit decided to imitate the Saiyajin. Shortly afterwards, Hit hits Goku hard and says he has managed to increase his temporary leap to 0.2 seconds.
Hit gives Goku time to recover since he was able to improve his skills thanks to him, after he gets up, Hit imitates his pose, which Goku smiles and thinks that he will stop several attacks of Hit, but the hitman will Says he is wrong if he thinks he can do the feat, then throws a combo of attacks and tells him that he managed to improve his temporary leap to 0.5 seconds, then asks the Referee to declare him a winner since his opponent is in The floor, but Goku gets up and tells him about a technique he was practicing to use against Beerus, but tells him that he is incomplete and does not know if he will succeed, even if he will survive. Later, Goku begins to raise his Ki, Hit looks surprised while Champa tells him to defeat him before he launches his attack, but Hit thinks that if he lets it get stronger he will also be stronger. Then, Goku performs in Kaio-ken while being transformed into Blue Super Saiyan, confessing that he almost dies when his Ki is out of control. Then, the saiyajin moves quickly, so much so that the killer fails to see him, and hits him several times, then increases his Kaio-ken to 10 times his power, then throws him a KameHameHa, Hit manages to dodge him and the attack hits the shield Energy destroying it, causing Whis and Vados to create a new one.

Hit's body emits a purple outline when Goku charges towards him and throws a flurry of punches and kicks that just go through him, like he was not there. A shocked Goku then tries to fire a ki blast, but Hit throws a punch in front of him which creates a shock wave that caves in a circular hole on Goku's left side of his chest that stops his heart.

Hit then uses his Flash Crush Fist and nearly kills Kunshi with it, much to his horror. Hit then switches with Goku and goes back after Dyspo and actually lands a massive blow to Dyspo.

Meanwhile, Kunshi pulls himself out of the rubble after Goku punched him through some debris and saves Dyspo.

Hit is then eventually cornered by Jiren and is seemingly defeated. However, Hit reveals he has been allowing himself to be hit to study Jiren's style and knows enough to land one major blow to beat him. Hit finally lands an attack on Jiren, who is stunned that he was almost knocked out of the ring. Hit reveals his attack has another purpose and is his trump card that paralyzes Jiren's body. However, seeing that he can't hold Jiren much longer, who is still able to move his body, Hit goes for a final attack. But, Jiren manages to stop it with his barrier and escape from the paralysis. Hit is then sent flying out of the ring by Jiren's Power Impact. There, Champa tells Hit that he did a good job and his intentions would help the other warriors from Universe 6.
