When Satotz is telling the remaining contenders about the dangers in the Numere Wetlands, a wounded man appears, accusing him of being a Man-Faced Ape in disguise and claiming to be the real examiner. Hisoka immediately throws some cards at both of them. While Satotz catches the cards with ease, the wounded man has his head pierced and dies. This proves that Satotz is the real examiner. He warns Hisoka not to provoke him again then leads the applicants on another marathon to the site of the Second Phase.

While running, Killua notices that Hisoka is soon going to take advantage of the thick fog to kills someone so he tells Gon to get away from Hisoka. A number of applicants then get killed by organisms in the wetlands. Hearing their cries, Gon becomes worried about Kurapika and Leorio, who are running behind him. Hisoka suddenly throws his cards at Kurapika, Leorio and the applicants around them. Kurapika is able to parry all the cards, but many applicants are killed and Leorio is also injured in his left arm. Hisoka then tells the survivors that he is playing the examiner. Gon runs towards the back as soon as he hears Leorio's cry of pain, despite Killua's advices to the contrary.
