Face-Off: Part 9 (対決 (9), Taiketsu (9)) is the 166th chapter of the Hunter × Hunter manga, written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi.

SynopsisEdit

Kess states that their team was at an advantage as it was now 3 on 2, but Tsezguerra explains that it was actually their team that was the one on a disadvantage. This was because Hisoka had an injured hand, so he could not catch any passes. Gon had also depleted his aura in the last attack. But the most hurt was Killua, who had severely injured his hands by putting only a little Nen protection on them to avoid decreasing the power of Gon's attack. Tsezguerra curses himself for not being in the game, as he could have protected his hand from the power of Gon's punch by quickly applying Nen on his hands at the moment of impact. It would also not affect the power of Gon's punch. Biscuit takes the next serve and throws the ball at the last devil inside the court, sending him out of the game.  

Tsezguerra decides to call a timeout and asks Gon to punch the ball outside for him to hold the ball because of his concerns with Killua's injury. Killua disagrees and thinks this will be a cop-out. He fakes the severity of his injury by stating that he is fine. But Biscuit pulls out his hands from his pockets and reveals they are very swollen. Killua insists on holding the ball and Gon trusts his friend and wants Killua to hold it for him, believing he's the only one who can do it. Now with Razor having the control of the ball, Gon comes up with another reckless idea to be able to stop Razor's attack.  

For his next attack, Razor absorbs all of his Nen Devils so that he could use his full power. And he then throws the ball at Gon's team by serving it like a volley-ball. And to counter this attack, the three members align in a weird position.
