The Time Tidepool is a unique ability of the assassin Hit.


Flashing and glowing bright purple light, Hit becomes intangible and invulnerable to all kinds of physical techniques. Gokū noted that it is different from his Time-Leap, and theorized that if physical moves didn't work, ki manipulation techniques might.[2] To be exact, Hit slips into an alternate dimension created from the time he has 'stored' away with his Time-Leap; this, he can freely move between this parallel plane, which is why he can only be seen and not touched. Hit cannot perform a standard attack within this dimension, however, he can release ki blasts from within this dimension to strike an opponent.[3]


  • Despite superficial similarities to the Afterimage Fist, the two techniques are distinct. Gokū even compares the attack to the Afterimage Fist before realizing they are different.[3]
  • The Tides of Time bears similarities to one half of the Kamui technique from Naruto, allowing the user to slip into an alternate dimension where they can be neither attacked nor can they attack, but they can be seen.
