Hisoka attacks Agon, unbeknownst to him, an unsuspecting foe that Hisoka had been trailing. The two of them begin to fight, when suddenly Gon swings his fishing rod forward and snags Hisoka's plate at a precise moment, catching both of them by surprise. Gon begins to run away, but gets ambushed by another examinee, Geretta, who had been following him for quite a while. Geretta compliments Gon's abilities and leaves with his plate.
Only moments later, Hisoka returns surrounded by a group of Hemotropic Butterfly, holding Geretta's severed head with his right hand. Hisoka admits he was taken by surprise and he returns his own plate to Gon. He further says Geretta was actually his target. Gon refuses to owe any favors to Hisoka and demands he take the plate back. Hisoka punches Gon in the face and tells him, he can repay the favor once he's strong enough to return the punch.
