The Other Enemy (もうひとつの敵, Mō Hitotsu no Teki) is the 8th chapter of the Hunter × Hunter manga, written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi.

SynopsisEdit

As Satotz continues his explanation, a man who claims himself to be the real examiner appears. He tells everyone that Satotz is a fake, and is one of the Man-faced Apes living in the forest. With this, the candidates become confused. Suddenly, two sets of cards fly towards the two examiners. The newer man is killed immediately as 3 cards stick into his head, while Satotz catches all of the cards thrown towards him. It becomes obvious that Hisoka was the person who threw the cards, using the attack to define who the true examiner was: a real Hunter should be able to block such a simple attack.

The group continues their way to the second exam site through the swamp, with only 311 candidates remaining. This is another marathon. As they keep running the fog gets thicker with every second, which makes it harder to see and keep up with Satotz. Killua tells Gon that they should move further ahead, away from Hisoka, because he feels that Hisoka wants to kill someone and will make use of the thick fog to do so.

A good number of candidates then get tricked by the creatures in the forest while Gon, Kurapika, Leorio and some other candidates are attacked by Hisoka.
