Rock × Scissors × Heart (グー×チョキ×ハート, Guu × Choki × Haato) is the 16th episode of the original Hunter × Hunter anime. It first aired on February 12th, 2000.


Leorio's opponent is now Leroute, an attractive woman. He loses ten hours in a bet so he can grope her and loses the rest in a game of rock, paper, scissors. Killua faces Johness the Dissector, a man responsible for murdering 146 people. Killua rips out his heart, explaining Johness is an amateur and he is a professional assassin.


Betting is the subject of the next match. Leorio's opponent, Leroute, a former psychologist, gets to choose the betting topic first, and proposes they bet on her gender. Leroute tells Leorio if he can verify if she's really a girl by allowing him to touch her body. Leorio then bets ten hours that Leroute is a man, just so he could touch her.


Leroute torturing Leorio

It's Leorio's turn to decide the betting topic, but he can't think of something to bet on. This is where Leroute tries to torture Leorio mentally. He easily gets caught up in her psychological trap, but soon gets back to his senses when Gon hits him with his fishing pole. As he still cannot think of anything, he just proposes to decide the match by janken (rock, paper, scissors). Leroute accepts, betting on all their time. At first there was a draw, but in the end Leorio loses their remaining ten hours. This ties both teams at 2-2, and at the same time Gon's group loses the 50 hours they wagered.


Killua with Johness' heart

For the next match, Killua steps up to fight the last person from the other group, who turns out to be Johness, an infamous mass murderer in Zaban City. He rips his victims' bodies into shreds with his bare hands only. Despite the warning from his teammates though, Killua decides to fight the guy. The condition of their match is that whoever dies is the loser. As Johness was about to close in on Killua, the boy easily digs out Johness' heart and crushes it, leading to the victory of Gon's group. They're then able to pass, but of course they have to stay in a room to spend the fifty hours they lost in the bet.
