While we tend to see them argue with each other more often than not in their interactions, neither Yusuke nor Keiko seem to refute the notion that they're in a relationship (or something at least akin to it). Yusuke mentions to Toguro that he hopes to "grow old" with her after winning the Dark Tournament, and a lot of the set-up to the ''Demon Kings'' arc involves Yusuke clarifying his hopes to marry her by the series' end.

* DudeLooksLikeALady: In one of the earlier chapters, Yusuke fights a bewitching FemmeFatale who tries to use her femininity to make opponents underestimate her, trying to play on an opponent's WouldntHitAGirl sense of chivalry. After a CrotchGrabSexCheck, Yusuke finds out it's just a regular guy fighter dressing like a girl to trick opponents. Yusuke even berates him for not being a ''real'' transvestite, in one of the series' [[OutOfCharacter odder]] moments of open-mindedness on Yusuke's part. Miyuki accuses Yusuke of violently attacking her because of 'what she is'. He calls her out, saying if s/he hadn't been in the way of the mission, he wouldn't have attacked her at all.

Where before Yusuke's Glowing Eyes Of Doom have always been blue, these are red, possibly to signify either his new demonic nature or the foreign presence in his body]].

This means that ''everything'' in the game plays out exactly the same in real life. If Yusuke and the heroes lose, they can just start over until they win; if they win, the villain, Amanuma, dies. Kurama, realizing that this is a trap and that Sensui intends for them to be stuck [[WouldntHurtAChild because they can't kill a kid]], beats him anyway. What's more, he ''tells'' Amanuma ''exactly'' how things will play out to mess with his head, so that he can win faster. Amanuma, being a child, freaks out and loses in an AlasPoorVillain way. [[spoiler: Fortunately, DeathIsCheap and Koenma has a ResetButton handy... which drains his power and prevents from stopping Sensui on his own, which was Sensui's REAL goal in setting the heroes against Amanuma.]]

* CerebusSyndrome: The manga starts out as an episodic comedy about Yusuke as a ghost, along with Botan, trying to help the living with their problems. After a couple volumes of this, it abruptly shifts into {{shonen|Demographic}} action mode. This gets far fewer complaints from fans than many CerebusSyndrome victims, however, because most fans know the series from the anime adaptation, which skips the comedic stories from the manga and rushes ahead to the action portion.\\\
During the final arc the show suddenly becomes less action oriented and for the first time focuses on how the events actually affect Yusuke and the gang's everyday lives, suddenly showing several episodes filled with lots of character development and quiet drama as opposed to high speed punching and explosions.

Serialized in 1990, ''Yu Yu Hakusho'' became an instant phenomenon throughout Japanese culture and set many standards in the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storytelling art of storytelling]] (and animation-wise,) fight choreography; becoming one of ''[[Magazine/ShonenJump JUMP]]''s "Golden Trio" alongside ''Manga/DragonBall'' and ''Manga/SlamDunk'', bringing sales up to their record all-time high of over six million copies nationwide. During ''[=YuYu=] Hakusho'''s initial animation run in UsefulNotes/{{Japan}}, it was one of the few shows to compete at all with ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' during the early '90s. It is a classic {{shonen|Demographic}} anime featuring colorful characters, lots of humor, and very clever fights. It wasn't as popular in the States as other series, but was one of the first anime to air (mostly uncut) on Creator/AdultSwim, until it migrated to Creator/{{Toonami}} with an edited weekday version. It was among Creator/FUNimation's earliest shows to dub alongside ''Dragon Ball Z,'' and therefore, starred some of its earliest regular cast members and kickstarted their reputation. Then 19 year old Justin Cook, who was the Line Producer and played the lead role, is now the chief producer at the studio. In the UsefulNotes/{{Philippines}}, the series was titled "[[CompletelyDifferentTitle Ghost Fighter]]" (and with different character names) and went on to be one of the landmark anime series there as well.

Originally a manga by Creator/YoshihiroTogashi, ''[=YuYu=] Hakusho'' (also romanized as '''Yuu Yuu Hakusho''') tells the story of Yusuke Urameshi, a bitter, beleaguered, junior high punk -- and legendary street fighter. One particularly bad day gets worse for Yusuke after he dies saving the life of a small boy from a car accident. He discovers that the forces of the Spirit World were expecting the boy to miraculously survive the accident but did not expect Yusuke to even be a part of it. Because of this [[PetTheDog surprising]] [[SenselessSacrifice (if ultimately useless)]] HeroicSacrifice, they offer Yusuke a chance to return from the dead. With the help of Botan (a perky female ''{{shinigami}}'' "Angel of Death" or essentially "[[TheGrimReaper Grim Reaper]]") and the approval of Koenma (the snarky son of King Enma, the judge of the dead in the Buddhist belief system, and the part-time stand-in for his father) Yusuke returns to the living world.
