Beware × Of × Prisoners (シュウジン×ニ×ゴヨウジン, Shūjin × Ni × Goyōjin) is the 9th episode of the Hunter × Hunter 2011 series. It first aired in November 27th, 2011.


Gon faces off against Sedokan and Majtani faces off against Kurapika who reveals a startling and scary secret.


Tonpa promptly gives up even before Bendot lands a punch on him. Leorio is furious at what he has done, but Tonpa tells them that his real plan is to sabotage rookies like them. Gon then faces Sedokan, who proposes a match to see whose candle burns the longest. Gon chooses the longer candle, unaware that it is oil-soaked, and his candle starts to burn faster midway. Seeing that his candle is not susceptible to strong winds, he puts it down and sprints towards Sedokan to blow his candle out.

The next match is between Kurapika and Majtani, who proposes a deathmatch without weapons and with the condition that one must die or surrender to finish the match. Majtani, who relies on scaring and intimidating his enemies to make them surrender, gloats about how many people he's killed and even keeps multiple heart tattoos numbering them. Kurapika notices a spider tattoo on Majtani's back and his eyes become Scarlet. He easily defeats him with a devastating punch, knocking him out, but not killing him. Kurapika tells Majtani to remember 3 things:

  1. A genuine Phantom Troupe tattoo has the member's number inscribed on the spider tattoo's back.
  2. They have murdered so many people that it would be impossible to count.
  3. Do not ever mention the Phantom Troupe again to Kurapika again or he will kill Majtani.

The group becomes frightened by Kurapika's outburst and the others try to figure out if Kurapika has a thing with spiders. He sits in the corner alone while the prisoners think of their next strategy.
