Gon then tells Neteros then he has finally managed to get him to use his right hand once, which Gon counts as a great achievement. Gon passes out happily from exhaustion, and Netero calls the pilot of the airship to fly the ship a little slower so Gon could get more rest.
It's called the Trick Tower. The candidates are told that to pass Phase 3, they have to climb down from the top to the base of the tower within 72 hours. An experienced rock climber candidate tries to climb down the side but is eaten by some flying monsters. Later, Kurapika finds that more than half of the candidates have gone missing from the top platform. Gon and Killua then tell Kurapika and Leorio that they have discovered hidden trap doors that flip and go inside the tower.
However, the catch is that there are many hidden doors and each one can be only used once by one person, which means they have to split up. Gon, Killua, Kurapika and Leorio try out different doors, saying goodbye, only to realize that they all end up in the same room. Gon's group is given special wristwatches, and Lippothe Phase 3 examiner, explains that the wristwatches can be used to vote for which paths to take through the Tower. They will need to cooperate in order to pass this phase.
However, there are 5 watches and they cannot proceed without a fifth member. Tonpa eventually falls through the trap door, joining in as the fifth member, and the exam proceeds.

By following majority rule, the group eventually reaches an arena, where they have to face prisoners hired by Lippo to become combatants. Lippo explains that to pass, all they have to do is win three rounds. Leorio holds the man above a long drop, and Majitani wakes up.
He concedes the match to Kurapika, but the group loses a large chunk of their time because of the bet. His opponent is Leroute, an attractive woman. He loses ten hours in bet to her so that he can grope her. He then loses the rest of their betting hours to her in a game of rock, paper, scissors. Killua then faces Johness the Dissector, a serial killer responsible for the murder of at least people with his bare hands.
Killua rips out his heart, explaining afterwards that Johness is an amateur and he is a pro. Leorio and Tonpa start fighting to see who will stay, when Gon thinks outside the box.
They choose the longer path, destroy the wall between the paths with axes provided so they could fight, and all five make it. In order to pay for the rooms, they dive to collect treasure from sunken ships.
Kurapika explains to Leorio that everyone from his clan was killed by the Phantom Troupe for their eyes. When a member of the Kurta clan dies with their emotions ablaze, their Eyes become Scarlet and are treated as treasures. A map is found indicating another island nearby, and part of the group sets out immediately to find it, dying when a storm hits. Hanzo and Kurapika sense danger and are elected leaders of the people who stay.
They learn of a storm that comes in daily waves, the second of which will submerge the island, so they have one day to escape. Leorio gets stuck on the bottom of the ocean in a diving suit and Gon helps him escape. Gon is then saved by Hisoka. Kurapika is knocked out but the steering is done by a mysterious examinee who seems to be Hisoka's ally. They separate the ship just in time, and a blimp comes to pick them up. Each examinee must collect 6 points; their own number badge is worth 3, the number badge of their target is worth 3, and any other number badges are worth one point.
Gon's target is Hisoka, and he practices catching birds with his fishing pole to prepare. He realizes he must attack Hisoka when Hisoka attacks his own target. Gon learns this by watching birds catch fish from the water.
Then Hisoka decides to hunt other participants for two more points. Gon is poisoned by Geretta and relieved of his badges. Hisoka kills Geretta easily and returns both badges: Gon's and his own. Gon tries to refuse it, but is unable to. Hisoka tells Gon he will kill him when the time is right, until then he will protect him. He punches him in the face and tells that he can return the badges only after he can return the punch.
Killua is stalked by Imori, one of Amori Brothers. Imori's brothers Umori and Amori show up, and Killua bests them and gets his number badge from Amori.
All the protagonists now have their points except for Leorio, who goes looking for his target Ponzu. He finds her in a cave, but is poisoned by snakes. Gon and Kurapika go inside to help him. Leorio has been poisoned, and Gon gets bit numerous times to retrieve the antidote. Gon uses Ponzu's sleeping gas to put the snakes to sleep while holding his breath and rescuing everyone. Leorio takes Ponzu's number badge while she sleeps and Gon retrieves the number badges given to him by Hisoka, reasoning that it's OK to use them so that he can remain with his friends.
The fourth stage ends. He asks each who they are interested in, and who would they least like to fight out of the nine. He then unveils a brackets system for the upcoming tournament between the remaining examinees.
Hisoka toys with Kurapika at the beginning, but when Kurapika becomes angry they are on similar levels. This causes Hisoka to force himself to calm down. He then whispers something to Kurapika and declares himself the loser of the match.
Kurapika is now a Hunter. Although Gon tries his hardest to combat Hanzo, it is obvious he is no match for the ninja. Hanzo severely injures Gon and breaks his arm, but Gon will not admit defeat.
Gon feels that if he is ever to find his father, he must pass the Hunter Exam now. Hanzo is easily the better fighter, but when Gon won't concede, Hanzo is forced to accept defeat.
