"Gokū Dies! Assassination Order That Must Be Performed" (悟空死す！絶対執行の暗殺依頼, Gokū Shisu! Zettai Shikkō no Ansatsu Irai) is the seventy-first episode of the Dragon Ball Super anime.
Gokū starts feeling uneasy, admitting to Gohan and Goten that he thinks someone wants to kill him. Meanwhile, in the Sixth Universe, Hit carries out an assassination mission by killing a crime boss. After completing this, Hit's next target is revealed to be Gokū. Hit arrives in the Seventh Universe; Gokū senses Hit coming and flies to a remote area so that their fight won't put anyone else in danger. Hit appears and informs Gokū that he's there to kill him. Gokū powers up and attacks Hit, but all of his attacks pass straight through him. Hit apparently kills Gokū with a single blow to the chest, and then disappears just before Piccolo, Gohan and Goten arrive and find Gokū's body.
