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
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, switfly
took the cat from the gangleader and faced him. Kuwabara and his friends,
who're emotionally charged at that time, fought the rest of
the gang members.
A youkai who had 12 criminal cases in rei kai. He stole the orb
which was one of rei kai's sacred treasures. He eats the souls of humans
especially children. He used the orb to get the souls from a child's body.
He was the first youkai whom Yusuke confronted. Gouki's body was as strong
as steel, that's why he had a difficult time in defeating him. Yusuke
managed to defeat him in their second match by firing the rei gun ( with
the help of the ring ) in his mouth since his mouth was not as strong as
KING - ( I have
no idea what his name was in Japanese )
Since I have no idea what
his original name was, let's just call him the bat king. 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 ken.
A challenger in Genkai's tournament.
He is a ninja and uses explosive shurakens as his weapon. He almost won
the match , but Yusuke was lucky to fall into a pond and the shurakens
that were following him led to Kazemaru.
||RANDOU / SHOURIN
A powerful youkai
whom Yusuke must defeat in Genkai's tournament. He disguised as an
innocent looking human ( bald ) named Shiourin at first so he could not be
recognized. He was defeated by Yusuke by luck in the end; some dirt got
inside Yusuke's ear while Rando cursed him. The curse was directed back to
Rando and he was defeated.

creature and a member of the shiseijuu. He can disassemble himself and
attacks his body parts ( rocks ) towards his opponent and then reassembles again. Genbu was defeated by Kurama by
stealing the glowing red rock which Kurama was able to notice while Genbu was attacking him. The rock by the way was his source of power. Kurama destroyed
the rock using his rose whip and then Genbu was eliminated for good.
A member of the Shiseijuu. He has a form of
human but his skin color is blue as well as his clothes ( With A Pictures
of a blue dragon ). He is uses ice magic which maybe the reason why he has
a cold heart. He was defeated by hiei by slashing him 16 times with his
sword only in a split second. This also portrayed hiei's excellent speed

yusuke with a little "mind" support from Kuwabara and Genkai.
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
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
of all that, he was fond of torturing and killing animals when he was a
kid. He was different and didn't had 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.
BUJUTSUKAI ( THE BLACK MARTIAL ARTS TOURNAMENT )
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.
The official emcee of the
Ankoku Bujutsukai. Koto has a form of a human but has ears, whiskers, and

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. [ CLICK HERE TO SEE HOW HE DIED ]
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. It was also the first time that Hiei used this technique to
anybody. Zeru was disintegrated after being eaten by the black dragon.
Hiei, on the other hand, almost lost his right arm after using such a
dangerous technique and , not to mention, for doing it for the first time.
A member of the
Rokuyukai Team. Rinku is a skilled kid that uses deadly yoyos as his weapon and has a
of a snake. He defeated Kuwabara in the
The drunken master that can multipy himself

powers, just pure muscle strength. He managed to knock him out by hitting
his head first with Chuu's head. Chuu was also attracted to Juri, the
emcee of the Ankoku.
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.

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
GOU ( EN ) - uncertain
Member of the Ichigaki team and
he uses an air-vac attack using his hand which is a quite deadly
technique. I think he called it a "hand-claw" attack ( here in
the Phils. ).
GOU ( RYOU ) - uncertain
of the Ichigaki team. He uses an invisible swing-crash attack which is
actually more like a wind strike. Yusuke and Kuwbara 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.
GOU ( KAI ) - uncertain
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 member of the Mashoutoukai Team. She
was disguised as a beautiful nurse and caged Hiei and Fukumen ( Genkai ) inside an
electric field. She also caught the heart of Koenma only for a moment
. She does have the looks and the body 'ya know.
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
unables 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.
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.
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. He also hit Kurama several times just for fun eventhough he knew that
Kurama had no chance against him because Kurama was already half-dead and
he was not moving ( but still standing ) after fighting Gama and Touya
The leader of the
Mashoutoukai Team. He wears a black dress and has black hair. He
uses sand and rock as his weapon. He can manipulate different kinds of
armor and weapons made of sand and rocks. He was defeated by Kuwabara with
the help of Yukina's appearance with the
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.
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 emmits 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.
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
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 Hiei by stabbing him with his
sword at his back.
This may come as a surprise but I
guess his villaneous character is simply irressistable. 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 got 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
He is the brother of Toguro Ottoto and has a
body like a 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
Toguro was once a person who had
ordinary skills in fighting. He trained alot 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.

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. Kurama managed
to defeat Kaito by winning the game; he made Kaito mention the forbidden
word/alphabets. The spirits of the three were safely

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 inlove 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. He eventually died ( due to natural cause ) and there were
plenty of strong but kind-hearted fighters who went over to his burial.
