This is my Yuu Yuu Hakusho, Yu Yu Hakusho, YYH page. Regardless how it's spelt it's still a great anime (not the one that was slaughtered) but the original version.
It was originally made to replace Dragonball Z in Japan. Just to let you know Hiei is my fav character from YYh as Mirai Trunks is my Favorite from Dragonball Z. So bare with me and my obsessions ^_^
Hiei is a monster whose true origins are unknown. He is a master swordsman, and his strength and speed are incredible. However, these are hardly his most fearsome abilities. Typically kept concealed behind a bandanna on his forehead is the Jagan, a mysterious third eye that possesses magical properties. With it he can control weak-minded humans, send telepathic messages, and move objects telekinetically. Hiei is fiercely independent, and his raw ambition drives him to pursue his own agenda at all times. Although he generally cares little for human life, and views others as mere obstacles in the pursuit of his own goals, Hiei strictly adheres to his own unique code of honor. As such, he helps those who help him, and is fiercely loyal to those who have managed to earn his respect.
Fourteen-year-old Yusuke Urameshi is the worst student at Sarayashiki Junior High. He gets terrible grades, skips class as often as possible, and has little respect for authority. On top of that, his coarse language and brash, arrogant manner get him into more fist-fights than he can count. Fortunately for him, he's good at fighting. Really good. In fact, Yusuke has the reputation of being the toughest kid in town. But despite his killer rep, Yusuke is misunderstood. His home life is troubled, (his mother is a severe alcoholic and his father is gone). He is hounded constantly by his teachers, by his mother, and by fellow students gunning for himÖ As such, Yusuke is generally pretty miserable. Only after being assigned the job of Spiritual Detective does Yusuke truly begin to find his place in life.
Kuwabara is Yusuke's chief rival at Sarayashiki Junior High. Like Yusuke, he isn't the greatest student, but he is an excellent fighter. Next to Yusuke he is probably the second strongest kid in town - a distinction that he despises. Every day Kuwabara challenges Yusuke to a fight, and every day he is beaten. But this only serves to strengthen his resolve. Kuwabara is driven by an unwavering desire to be the best, and he will not rest until he beats Yusuke and proves once and for all that he is the strongest.
Age: 300+ (appears to be only 15 years old)
Actually a monster in human form, Kurama has lived for over 300 years and possesses the wisdom and knowledge one would expect of someone his age. He is generally soft-spoken, almost eerily calm, even in the face of great adversity. But this calm exterior belies Kurama's lethal potential. He is a powerful, ruthless warrior, whose wisdom and experience have taught him that only a fool allows his enemy to live to fight another day. As such, while in the heat of battle, he is without mercy.
Son of King Yama, ruler of the Spirit World, Koenma is left in charge of day to day operations while his father is away on vacation (a chore he despises - too much paperwork!). Koenma's youthful appearance is quite deceiving - the little prince is actually over 700 years old! Koenma possesses the wisdom to accompany his years, and can pose a rather commanding figure in spite of his diminutive size. There's only one thing that Koenma fears - making his father angry!
Kayko is Yusuke's closest (and at times, only) friend. She and Yusuke have known each other since they were little children, and although he would never admit it, she is probably the person that he cares most about in the world. As such, Kayko has a unique ability to talk sense into Yusuke when he is being stubborn or unruly. Kayko is one of the leading students in her school. Intelligent, friendly, and outgoing, she is well-liked and respected by her peers. She is confident, self-assured, and at times a bit head-strong. She is brave in the face of danger, and will not hesitate to put herself at risk in order to help a friend in need.
Genkai, aging master of the Reidoha (or Spirit Wave) fighting technique, wishes to pass her knowledge to one worthy pupil before she dies. Yusuke is chosen to be that pupil, and he soon discovers Genkai's training to be the most difficult ordeal of his life. Despite her advanced years, Genkai constantly amazes Yusuke with her ability to perform superhuman feats of strength and agility. Her wit is as finely honed as her technique, and she possesses the wisdom that comes from a life rich with experience. Impossible to intimidate, she stares unflinchingly into the face of danger, ready to meet even the most daunting of challenges.
A messenger of the Spirit World, Botan serves as a guide to newly-departed spirits. She is friendly and often quite chipper, but when it comes to performing her duties she is all business. After Yusuke is assigned the job of Spiritual Detective, Koenma assigns Botan to be his assistant. Her knowledge and experience often prove invaluable to Yusuke during his many adventures.
Name:Shorin / Rando
Age: Pre-teen / Unknown
A mild-mannered but powerful young fighter, Shorin enters Genkai's Tournament in hopes of becoming the aging master's pupil. But this quiet young man is not what he seems. Shorin is in fact none other than the monster Rando in disguise! Rando is a terrible creature who has murdered 99 fighting masters and stolen their special techniques. He now needs only to steal Genkai's power of Reidoha (the Spirit Wave) and he will become virtually invincible.
Kibano is a man of few words, preferring to let his arsenal of martial arts attacks do his talking for him. Among his more devastating moves is the Big Arm Bomber, an attack which uses concentrated Spirit Energy to amplify the power of his already explosive punches. Kibano sometimes makes use of a special helmet that enhances his Spirit Awareness and allows him to sense, rather than see, the movements of his opponents.
One of the semi-finalists in the Genkai Tournament, Kazemaru is well trained in the Nijitzu art of stealth. His considerable fighting skills put him in high demand among government officials as a top professional bodyguard. Kazemaru is able to channel his Spirit Energy through the palm of his hand, emitting a powerful blast similar to Yusuke's Spirit Gun- but far more potent.
A dangerous criminal from the Spirit World with over a dozen convictions to his name, Gouki has escaped his prison and is on the loose in the human world. Yusuke is given the assignment of apprehending the villain, but he'd better be careful! Gouki is incredibly strong, and has used his strength to kill more than ten pursuers already! When backed into a corner, Gouki reveals his true form by transforming into Kyuukonki, a vicious monster that feeds on human souls (particularly the souls of children).
Name:Mr. Iwamoto / Mr. Akashi
Age: Mid 30ís
Teachers at Sarayashiki Junior High, both Mr. Iwamoto and Mr. Akashi consider Yusuke Urameshi and his trouble-making friends to be the scum of the earth. As such, they are determined to have these hopeless and unruly students permanently expelled before they can do irreparable harm to the school's all-important reputation. To this end, Iwamoto and Akashi are willing to do whatever it takes, and will not hesitate to lie, cheat, or steal if they feel it will further their cause.
Age: Mid 30's
Atsuko is Yusuke's unemployed, alcoholic single mother. She loves her son and tries to steer him in the right direction as best she can, but her erratic mood swings and drunken tirades tend to make her an ineffective parent. Atsuko is aware of her shortcomings, and if there's one thing she wants for Yusuke, it's for him to make something more of himself in life than she has.
One of Kuwabara's friends who is in his gang. Okubo is a respectable fighter in his own right. Unfortunately, his fighting also often gets him into trouble with his teachers at school. But despite the fact that his teachers have him pegged as a trouble-maker, Okubo is actually a very responsible young man. In addition to attending Sarayashiki Jr. High, Okubo works a part-time job to help support his siblings and his ailing mother.
Age: Late 30s to early 40s
One of the head teachers at Sarayashiki Junior High, he sees a spark of good in Yusuke where his fellow teachers see only a worthless young punk. Mr. Takenaka is an honest and honorable man whose actions are motivated by a genuine concern for the well-being of his students. He is strict, but fair, and is the only teacher at the school that Yusuke respects.

Concentration Ring. Detective item three of seven. Multiplies the users spirit energy several fold.
Demon Compass. Detective item number two of seven. Indicates the distance and direction of an already identified demon.
The Forlorn Hope is also an Artifact of Darkness, but it can be used for good as well. The Forlorn Hope is a mirror that grants a wish when the moon is full. One catch, the person that makes a wish gives their life in exchange. Kurama another demon stole this artifact from the Spirit World, but his intentions were good, he used it to save his human mother's life, but since Yusuke offered to give his life in exchange, the Forlorn Hope let Yusuke and Kurama live. Kurama then decided to help Yusuke.
The Orb of Baast is a very powerful Artifact of Darkness. It is used to steal people souls without actually killing them, but if the person does not retrieve their soul in a certain period of time, they will eventually die. The Orb of Baast was stolen from the Spirit World by Gouki and evil demon that used it to steal souls, especially those of little children, for nourishment. It was later retrieved by Yusuke.
The Shadow Sword is possibly the worst of all the Artifacts of Darkness. Anything that is cut by it turns in to a demon slave for the being wielding the sword. Hiei the third of the demon trio also stole this artifact from the Spirit World. Hiei used this to give himself minions, and he sealed an antidote to the brainwashing of his third eye known as a Jagan. Yusuke was able to break the sword, and defeat Hiei by bouncing his Spirit Gun off of the Forlorn Hope, but he destroyed the powerful mirror in the process.
Race: Saint Beast
Other Info: Possesses the Tiger Scream Attack
Byakko is one of the fierce Saint Beasts. He is the second Saint Beast that the group must fight. Byakko has the ability to create monsters from the hair on his mane which make double the trouble for those challenging him. Kuwabara was the first person to challenge Byakko since the Spirit World put a barrier on the City of Ghosts and Apparitions where the Saint Beasts preside. Byakko absorbed the energy though Kuwabara's Spirit Sword, but it was too much and he exploded. Byakko was able to pull himself back together and lead the fighters in to his private chamber filled with lava. But Kuwabara managed to knock Byakko in to his own lava trap defeating the Saint Beast once and for all.
Race: Saint Beast
Other Info: "Melts" in to Rock
Genbu is one of the weaker of the four Saint Beasts. He was only kept as one because he could "melt" through the castle rock and talk with the people inside the City of Ghosts and Apparitions. In a battle with Kurama, it looked like Genbu had the advantage, and when Kurama slashed Genbu to pieces with his Rose Whip, Genbu was able to reassemble. Genbu's downfall was a part of his brain that allowed him to be put back together, once Kurama destroyed this, Genbu was defeated.
Race: Saint Beast
Other Info: Possesses the Ice Dragon Attack
Seiryu is the third and merciless Saint Beast. He even went so far as to kill his comrade Byakko because Byakko dishonored the Saint Beast's name. He is somewhat overconfident which you really shouldn't be against Hiei. Hiei's speed allowed him to dodge most of Seiryu's Ice Dragon, but Seiryu hit him a few times. Then Hiei charged Seiryu and slashed Seiryu with his sword sixteen times cutting Seiryu to pieces. Then because he is an ice demon, he was able to remove the ice from his body.
Race: Saint Beast
Other Info: Leader of the Saint Beasts
Suzaku is the leader of the Saint Beasts and the most powerful. He devised the plan to use the Makai Whistle to get the barrier taken away from their city. He is smart in battle by seeking out his enemies weaknesses and attacking them. He did so with Yusuke and tried to kill Kayko making Yusuke reckless and not think. He possesses two powerful attacks the Storm of Torment and the Prism of Seven. Suzaku thinks human emotion makes them weak until Yusuke goes in to a blast of rage when he realizes that his friends need him. Yusuke was willing to sacrifice his life and he used his life energy to finish off Suzaku. As Suzaku is dying he realizes that it was because of Yusuke's human emotions that Yusuke was able to defeat Suzaku.
The tough, short-tempered, psychic elder sister of Kazuma Kuwabara, and the one who often smokes. She also has this rei kan capability that can sense danger just like her brother. Shizuru also has good skills in martial arts, probably better than Kazuma's. Their difference is that Shizuru does not have any special rei ki powers. She's also very protective and worries a lot about her brother ( sometimes ). She wants him to finish his studies and be responsible enough for himself. And about her love life, she met Sakyo during the ankoku and she was somehow attracted to him, but things didn't work out because he died by blowing up the whole dome.
The sensitive, innocent, sweet, and pretty ice maiden from Koorime. Her powers concentrates on the ice element and she has the ability to heal. Yukina left Koorime ( in Makai ) to look for his missing brother, Hiei. She basically has no idea what her brother looks like but she's determined to search. When Hiei heard about her abduction in Ningenkai, he went as fast as he can to the place where she's being held prisoner by a malevolent merchant. She was tortured so she could shed tears that turn to priceless pearls. She was saved by Yusuke and Kuwabara. Kuwabara fell helplessly in love with her from the moment he saw her on the video file that Koenma gave them before embarking on the mission. When Hiei finally saw her he did not introduced himself as her long lost brother, but only as a friend.
NAME: SHINOBU SENSUI
CODENAME: DARK ANGEL
AGE: 26 BIRTHDAY: JUNE 6
A former rei kai detective who was brainwashed by seeing innocent youkais tortured by humans ( with Sakyo ) whom he tried to protect from demons ( which he thought were the evil ones ) . He leads a group of 7 people with extraordinary capabilities whom he himself was the one who gave it to them. He plans to generate a hole linking makai to ningenkai which will bring chaos. This plan was just like what Sakyo had in mind. Anyway, the reason why Sensui planned it is to have Yusuke's attention. His real plan was to be killed by a youkai and die in makai, the place where all the demons live including the ones he had killed. Sensui's powers are incredibly strong. His powers are classified as an s-class. And because his powers exceed with Yusuke's, he managed to kill him . Hiei, Kurama, and Kuwabara had no chance against him as well. Speaking of his powers, he also have seven personalities living inside him which will appear one by one in different situations. He gained those personalities from thousands of battles he had confronted as mentioned in the series. During his battle with Yusuke, these personalities in him appeared one by one and once one of them was defeated or slowly losing, the other person or character will take over. Yusuke had a hard time about it, but he managed to defeat Sensui after being reborn by his youkai blood with class s power. Itsuki took Sensui's body and soul right after Sensui's death . He did not allow Sensui's soul to go to rei kai because Sensui once told him that when he dies, he does not want his spirit to go anywhere. And so, Itsuki held him into his arms and let time pass by in the world of shadows.
NAME : ITSUKI
CODENAME: GATE KEEPER
AGE: UNKNOWN OTHER INFO: UNKNOWN.
The right hand of Sensui. He has a pet shadow with a form of a giant head and swallows anything its master tells him. It was slashed with Kuwabara's dimension sword during Yusuke's battle with Sensui inside the cave. On the other hand, Itsuki seemed to have an interest on Sensui. He observes his every move; like his emotions, weakness, fighting skills, etc..he was amazed with Sensui as a human and he was more amazed on him because he never showed any weakness during their travels. Another reason is because Itsuki owes his life to Sensui. As a youkai, he was almost killed by him because he was one of the demon targets of Sensui. After their fight, Itsuki was lying on the ground, seriously wounded and barely alive. At that time, he was given a chance by Sensui to say any wish before he die. Itsuki wished to live another day so he could see the last episode of his favorite TV. series. It was a coincidence that Sensui was watching that series too. Sensui decided to let Itsuki live and Itsuki became his companion from that point on.
NAME: KAMIA MINORU
CODENAME : THE DOCTOR
AGE : 29 BIRTHDAY: AUGUST 20.
A doctor who can heal himself whenever he's injured, bruised, or cut. He can also cut through anything using his fingers. He was also the one who released thousands of flying robot insects carrying a solution that can make a person feel ill and very weak. Their skin turns to blue once they're infected. He was defeated by Yusuke and almost died. When he was defeated, the mosquitoes fell down and the infected people were cured, including Keiko. At the end of the Sensui saga, he changed his appearance so that people would not recognize the part of him which is a wanted doctor being searched by the police. He was never caught and he started to use his abilities into good use.
NAME: MITARAI KYOSHIN
AGE: 14 BIRTHDAY: JANUARY 10 *MARINE SCHOOL GRADUATE.
He was given the ability to create hideous monsters made of water when mixed with his blood - the more quantity of blood, the bigger the monster. He was often bullied by his classmates and he had no friends from school. People always treat him differently which was the reason why he gave in to Sensui's offer. He was defeated by Kuwabara when he attacked Kuwabara and his friends one rainy night after watching a rock band concert. When Kuwabara's friends were crying for help, Kuwabara's rei kan transformed into a more powerful and solid sword called the dimension sword. He attacked Seaman in one slash. Kuwa's friends were saved and Mitarai was seriously wounded. Kuwa brought his friends and took them home. He also took Mitarai to his place and helped him heal his wounds. Kurama and the rest talked to Seaman about Sensui and all the evil plans they had and already done. With Kurama, Genkai, Botan, and the others' help, Mitarai came up with his senses and helped them find Sensui's lair.
NAME : AMANUMA TSUKIHITO
AGE : 11 BIRTHDAY: NOVEMBER 7
Amanuma has the ability to turn a game into reality. The only way someone could escape his game / territory is to defeat him. Amanuma's powers were given to him by Sensui upon approval. Amanuma did not have much friends and did not have a good relationship with his parents , and so he was lonely and spent much of his time in the arcades. When Sensui offered him a chance to be someone with special powers, he was excited and he thought it would be fun but he was not aware that his own power/territory would bring his own destruction. Kurama defeated him in the game and death was the result for the gamemaster. Kurama took it very seriously because he was unable to save the poor kid . It was fortunate for Amanuma that he was saved by Koenma using Koenma's pacifier. When he was brought back to life, his powers disappeared and started a new life. He also started to have friends in school.
NAME: HAGIRI KANAME
AGE: 17 BIRTHDAY: FEBRUARY 3.
WITH 3 SIBLINGS.
A high school student with telekinesis power. He also rides a motorbike and he often uses marbles like bullets: he aims them to his target, and snaps it one by one towards his opponent with a speed and impact of a bullet. When he was busy playing around with Yusuke during the saga, Hiei surprisingly striked him with his sword with precision. Sniper fell down the ground unconscious. He was treated by Dr. Kamia after Sensui was defeated. Dr. Kamia was impressed of Sniper's wound since the sword went through the middle of Sniper's muscles and did not damage any organs. Sniper went back to school afterwards ,finished high school, and mysteriously disappeared. He may not have shown it before but he is actually a sensitive and kind-hearted guy. At the end of the saga before he disappeared, he and his sister saw a dead cat. His sister, having extraordinary powers as well, sensed the fear inside the cat's body because the cat was hunted and killed by lunatic students. His sister touched Hagiri's forehead to transfer the feeling to him. Hagiri then decides to hunt those students down because they happen to be his classmates. That ends his story in the series.
NAME: MAKIHARA SADAO
PERSONAL INFO: UNKNOWN.
A youkai/man-eating youkai who can also possess the ability of the man/youkai he eats. There was a former boxing champion named Murota whom he ate because Murota started to speak against Sensui's group. Also, it was unfortunate for him that he ate the immortal Toguro Oni. Because of this, Toguro lived inside his body ( Toguro was immortal remember? ) while gourmet suffer the pain and agony because of the effect. Gourmet was swiftly defeated by Kurama with just one quick attack with his rose whip by slicing up his head horizontally ( this happened in the lair of Sensui right after Amanuma's defeat ) . When gourmet was defeated, Toguro Oni's head appeared replacing gourmet's head and he used gourmet's body to move. Kurama knew that Toguro was in Gourmet's body from the beginning and so, he managed to defeat Toguro by using a tree of hallucinations. The tree supposedly supplies nightmares to any beings whom it is attached to until the being dies. But since Toguro is an immortal, he will see all those hallucinations for all eternity.
An investigator assigned by Koenma to monitor Yusuke's doings while Yusuke was wandering around in Ningenkai with Botan. Physically she is a child but, similar to Koenma, she is a mature and intelligent being. She only appeared in episode 4 of the series, but in the manga, she has a deeper story.
Ikitchi is Kuwabara's pet cat. It was once taken by a group of gangsters from their rival school and used it as bait so that Kuwabara would follow whatever they tell him to do. Yusuke, after seeing Kuwabara sacrificed his pride and all just to save Ikitchi, swiftly took the cat from the gang leader and faced him. Kuwabara and his friends, who're emotionally charged at that time, fought the rest of the gang members.
The Bat King lives in the forest and he feeds on humans. Unfortunately, it was the same forest where the race was held during Genkai's tournament. Now, Yusuke was the less-fortunate soul who got lost and faced the bat king by himself. The bat king attacked Yusuke but, of course, he was no match for Yusuke. Yusuke literally tied the bat king in a tree so he wouldn't bother anyone from that point on. This was also the reason why Yusuke was delayed and he was the last one who reached the 'finish line'.
A challenger in Genkai's tournament. He and Yusuke fought in the 3rd part of the tournament: fighting in the midst of darkness. Kibanou used a mask to see in the dark and to study his opponents strength. Yusuke placed a lighted cigarette in Kibanou's belt so that he could see where Kibanou is. He fired his rei gun towards Kibanou's mask and he was immediately defeated.
A samurai warrior who uses a wooden sword and has a pirate's eye. Kuwabara fought him during the tournament for the successor of Genkai. It was in this match that lead Kuwabara's rei ki to be materialized as a sword of light spontaneously. His very own rei kan.

One of the guardians of Tarukane. He wears black clothing and uses claws ( similar to wolverine's ) as his weapon. He can disappear in mid air and attacks swiftly. Yusuke instantly defeated him by using his multiple rei ki punches with Kuwabara's signal.
He is also one of the guardians of Tarukane. He has the size of a giant and uses a huge spike-edged bat as his weapon. He was instantly defeated by Yusuke and Kuwabara by kicking him hard.
One of the guardians of the evil merchant who kidnapped Yukina. This one's interesting because this youkai is actually a male and considered as a gay youkai. The tv series may not have shown this but while Yusuke was fighting him, he touched this youkai's private body parts to make sure that this youkai is a he.
The wealthy and evil merchant who abducted Yukina and tortured her to have her tears that turn into priceless gems. The Toguro brothers were also under his control at that time , but they were secretly under Sakyo's. At the later end of the "Yukina" eps, Tarukane was beaten by Hiei and had been surrendered to the authorities. Yukina was rescued and she was safely escorted to a place of snow to recover her strength.
A wealthy man with a crazy mind. He plans to create a hole linking makai to ningenkai , and that would mean destruction of mankind. Anyway, to identify him easily, he smokes pretty often and wears a black suite. He has very long black hair and has a scar on his face. He is the head of the Toguro team during the Ankoku. Despite all that, he was fond of torturing and killing animals when he was a kid. He was different and didn't have any friends, even in his family. In the Ankoku, he saved Shizuru Kuwabara from a bunch of youkai guards twice, but he did not tell her his real identity. He died after the Urameshi team won the tournament just as the deal says.
Puu is actually "Yusuke's half". His existence is an extension of Yusuke's being and he can feel the exact same emotion/feeling as Yusuke. To refresh your memory, Puu actually came from the EGG that Koenma used to give Yusuke before Yusuke was reincarnated in the earlier episodes.

A member of the Rokuyukai team. He's a youkai that has violet skin and can turn his hands into any weapon he wish to use. His opponent at that time was Kurama. He threatened Kurama by bombing the house of Shiori, his mother during their match. To prevent the bombing, Kurama must give up the match and let Roto win. And so, Kurama accepted all of Roto's attacks without fighting back. Then he managed to throw a seed against Roto's body without Roto noticing its effect. Roto did not feel anything until a plant grew inside him ( approx. 4 mins. after Kurama threw the seed ) and it instantly killed him.
The leader of the Rokuyukai team and the first to experience Hiei's "ensatsu-koku-ryu-ha" or the "evil-king-black-dragon-wave"- the strongest technique from Hiei's powers.

The head of the Ichigaki team. He is an evil scientist who took advantage of a group of fighters who has a sick sensei. He promised them that he would cure their teacher only if they would join the tournament under his control. When Yusuke, Genkai, and Kuwabara defeated his team, he transformed into a giant beast but he was easily defeated by Yusuke whose heart was filled with hatred and anger for what Ichigaki did.
( NAME UNKNOWN )
This is the sensei ( teacher/mentor ) of the fighters of the Ichigaki team. He was suffering to an illness and his students had no money for the medicine. During the tournament, Ichigaki hid him in a cave until his goals were realized. Fortunately, Kurama and Hiei found the sensei and Kurama gave him a special medicine so he can be healed. After the match ( Urameshi vs Ichigaki team ) , the sensei was reunited with his students.

Member of the Ichigaki team and he uses an air-vac attack using his hand which is a quite deadly technique.
M-2 GOU ( RYOU )
Member of the Ichigaki team. He uses an invisible swing-crash attack which is actually more like a wind strike. Yusuke and Kuwabara had a difficult time dealing with this technique. Even if both of them are blocks away, they can still get hit by his attack without them noticing its approach.
M-3 GOU ( KAI )
Youngest member ( I'm assuming at this one ) of the Ichigaki team. He uses rei ki generated halos ( yellowish in color ) and strikes them towards the enemy. He also exceeds his team mates in terms of agility and speed by fault ( hehe..well, he's the youngest so what'd you expect? ).
A giant robot used by 2 members of the Ichigaki team ( M-4 Gou & M-5 Gou ) to fight Hiei and Kurama in the forest ( outside the dome ). The purpose of those two is to prevent Kurama and Hiei from re-uniting with their team mates during the match of the Urameshi team vs. Dr. Ichigaki Team.

a member of the Mashoutoukai Team. His weapon is the make up mixed with poison. Once he painted his opponent with make up, his opponent will experience heaviness like he's a chained prisoner with heavy and huge balls made of iron that enables him to move. Kurama, after defeating Gama with his rose whip from his hair, was spilled with Gama's blood which is the poison mixed in his makeup. He was cursed and had a difficult time to move until his next match.
JUHYOO TSUKAI TOUYA
a member of the Mashoutoukai Team who can control ice. Just one look at him and you could see him as an ice youkai ( cool hair too ). He uses small but sharp brittles of ice and blow them to his opponent. Another tech of his is his ice sword attached to his hand. Kurama defeated him with his plants but he was seriously injured after the match.
KAZE TSUKAI JIN
A goblin who uses wind technique and also a member of the Mashoutoukai team. Jin was one of the toughest opponents that Yusuke faced during the ankoku. Jin is very skilled in using his wind techniques. His attacks were not bad either. He was the first youkai to encounter Yusuke's "spirit light bullet" technique which knocked him out. After their match, he was pretty amazed with Yusuke because of his strength. From that point on, Jin and Yusuke became friends.
A member of the Mashoutoukai Team who can generate steam and smoke from his sweat. He hides from his smoke to make it difficult for his opponent to see him, then he attack ,then he hides again. He was defeated by Yusuke by making a hole from the dome. The smoke went out of the dome and Kuromomotaro became hopeless against Yusuke. He was beaten by Yusuke's punches until he passed out.

A team of five with good skills and a fair leader. Their entire team was killed by Toguro Oni alone. The worst part of it was one the Gorenja team's team mate betrayed them in exchange for his life. He was also killed just like the rest of the team as expected.
MATSUOKA SUZUKI / ONJII
The leader of the Uraotogi team. He is the master of disguises and during the ankoku, he used the form of an old man because he can't think of anything better. He also considers himself as a handsome person which everyone disagrees. He can also project a giant bubble that captures and traps the opponent inside and let a portal suck it inside. The portal leads the person it engulfed towards a far place. When Kuwabara was sucked into the portal, it lead him back to the old dome of the tournament which is only a few blocks away from the dome they currently use. This happened to him twice when he returned to the new dome where the tournament was being held and continued his match with Suzuki. When Genkai took Kuwabara's place after losing the match, she defeated him with a little bit of pleasure because of his annoying pride. After the match, he gave a sword handle to Kuwabara which absorbs its holder's power and emits a special sword. He also gave a liquid solution to Kurama that will transform him back to his Youko form. These two were essential tools to Kuwabara and Kurama's success to their final match.
A good-looking youkai samurai warrior and a member of the Uraotogi Team. His powers rely on his sword that has a special kind of power. He was defeated by Genkai ( at this match Genkai just passed on her powers to Yusuke ) by absorbing his powers and used it against him.
A member of the Uraotogi Team. He is small but almost as skilled as Kurama in using his piano wire whip. He deceived Kurama by making him believe that he was forced to join the tournament by their leader and he was ready to be defeated in Kurama's hands. While Kurama was open-handed , Urashima opened a box that will transform his opponent into a helpless child. But in Kurama's case, he transformed into a youko which made him more powerful. He was threatened by Kurama to tell him the secret of the box he just opened, but he was instantly killed by Wakamaru knowing that he was a useless team mate.
A member of the Uraotogi team who can use three different armors at a time. This youkai is a tough one because Hiei had a difficult time in defeating him. This was also the first time that Hiei's katana ( sword ) broke into two because of Kuro's unbreakable armor ( his 2nd armor ). Hiei used his "ja-ou-en-satsu-ken" or locally translated as the "black fire sword" for the very first time which he instantly defeated his opponent with one swift slash . He also used his "ja-ou-ensatsu-rengoku-shou" or the "evil-king-purgatory-scorching" in this match.
A member of the Uraotogi Team . He has a dark brown complexion and has a gigantic size. He was swiftly defeated by Hiei by stabbing him with his sword at his back.
Karasu was introduced during the Ankoku Bujutsukai and a member of the Toguro team. He was once defeated by Toguro ( like Bui ) and he was like a slave since then - always following Toguro's orders. Karasu has the ability to create extraordinary bombs that are very deadly and he also has an ability to blow anything up just by touching any object/any person. And he seemed to have an interest in Kurama which brought shivers and slight trauma to Kurama. Fortunately, he was defeated and killed by Kurama, but Kurama lost the match because he didn't get up in the count of ten.
A member of the Toguro team who wears a tremendously heavy armor and carries a gigantic ax. He was once defeated by Toguro Ottoto ( like Karasu ) and plans for his revenge. It was unfortunate for him that he was defeated by Hiei during the tournament, which means his revenge for Toguro would be meaningless or impossible.
He is the brother of Toguro Ottoto and has a body like clay. He can regenerate himself whenever he's hurt, or one of his body parts was damaged, or simply whenever he wants to which means he is considered as an immortal. He was defeated by Kuwabara during their match in the tournament , but he did not actually die. He re-appeared during the final match between Toguro and Yusuke, but his body was not completely intact. Toguro Ottoto was the one who finished him off because he was too nosy. And just like before, he didn't die. He was confronted by Kurama during the Sensui Saga and he was defeated for good. A tree of hallucinations was attached to him which will give him nightmares or hallucinations. These nightmares will be with him until he dies, but since he is immortal, these nightmares ( or the tree ) will be with him for eternity.
Toguro was once a person who had ordinary skills in fighting. He trained a lot for self-improvement in terms of martial arts. One day he invited some friends into a simple competition. That day could have been a day of fun to him but it became a nightmare to him instead when a hideous youkai appeared with unlimited strength. It killed all his friends and he wasn't able to protect them. That was the time he wanted to become stronger, to have absolute power. He trained himself to the fullest to be prepared to face the youkai who killed his friends. He met Genkai during those days and became his partner in the past Ankoku Bujutsukai. Toguro joined the tournament after hearing that the youkai who killed his friends would be there. Toguro and Genkai defeated that monster and became the champions. However, Toguro wasn't satisfied about it. He still wanted more power because he feared that one day someone would emerge and defeat him, and because of that, he sold his soul to the king of darkness and became a youkai. At that point on, he and Genkai got seperated and never saw each other until 50 years later.He was killed by Yusuke with the help of Kuwabara during the previous ankoku.
The King of Rei Kai and Koenma's most respected and feared father. Enma Daioh has always valued justice and the balance of rei kai, ningenkai, and makai.

An intelligent high school student who goes to the same school as Kurama and can capture his opponents and entraps them in his territory without saying the forbidden word. If a person mentions the forbidden word, his spirit would be captured by Kaito. The people who were trapped inside his territory must capture Kaito's spirit so they could be free. Hiei 's spirit was captured because he was not careful. He mentioned the forbidden word in purpose and so did Kuwabara. Botan mentioned it accidentally so her spirit was captured too.

The king of Makai and the surprising ancestor of Yusuke. Raizen stopped eating humans years ago when he met a woman who helped and nursed him back to health. He fell in love I guess and made love. That was the time when he stopped feeding on humans and it's the exact reason why he is dying. Since death is upon him, he invited Yusuke over to Makai to be his successor to rule over Makai and be trained to become stronger.
