|Debut:||Episode 42 (1999)|
Yoshihiro Togashi put in a cameo appearance as a sports commentator in the 1999 anime adaptation. During the match between Gon and Hisoka, he sits next to a female commentator of the Heavens Arena and explains to her the origin of Hisoka's Bungee Gum ability. The Heavens Arena commentator is annoyed by his know-it-all manner and beats him up.
Later, while Gon and Killua are arguing over the 3.9 billion Jenny they lost to a swindler on an unreliable auction website, he appears again, breaking the fourth wall and warning the audience that buying an item by only looking at its picture can be a risky business, especially something that is expensive.
