** Also present in Suzuka has a vision of old age similar to Younger Toguro's: He despises old people for their natural decay of strength and beauty. However, instead of selling his soul to become immortal, he just wants to die before getting old.

As his closest teammates, he gathers some more than capable fighting partners in the form of Kazuma Kuwabara, his old school rival; Kurama, a benevolent reformed fox-spirit trapped in a human body; and Hiei, a [[TokenEvilTeammate not so benevolent, not so reformed demon]] who reluctantly tags along with Yusuke and his entourage [[RecruitingTheCriminal as part of his sentence.]]

* AdaptationalHeroism: A minor version, since Kuwabara was never really that bad of a guy in the first place, but towards the beginning of both the manga and the anime, Kuwabara's gang gets into trouble for getting into a fight and Kuwabara winds up sticking his neck out for one of his friends and promises to a teacher to stay out of fights and pass an upcoming exam. In the manga this fight is never shown and is implied to be the usual delinquent behavior from him, but in the anime the fight ''is'' shown, and he started the fight only because the gang he was fighting was harrassing (and possibly threatening to molest) Keiko and he wanted to help her out.
** Yusuke, while still a delinquent in the anime, has some of his bad traits toned down, like his smoking habit, gambling, and shoplifting.

%%* DrunkenMaster: Chu

to:

%%* DrunkenMaster: Chu* DrunkenMaster: Chu becomes more dangerous after taking a swig of Ogre Killer. Taken to whole new levels when his most powerful attack actually involves mixing his energy with alcohol to make an energy ball powerful enough that two shots of Yusuke's Spirit Gun couldn't equal it. The first shot weakened the attack and the second shot burst through it, punching a hole in the middle, but not stopping it. He also has a special kind of alcohol that... well... induces vomiting. Once he's emptied his stomach, he gets drunk even faster, which summons more of his demonic energy for him to use.



*** Kuwabara: Fights physically weaker opponents Rinku and Elder Toguro but has some difficulty hitting their body and/or his vital organs. Eventually the opponents suspend Kuwabara in the air through some rope or tentacle attack and throw Kuwabara to the ground. [[spoiler:Despite this, Kuwabara fights through the pain and defeats but fails to kill his opponents]].

The only way to will kill him is by destroying his heart or brain which is a bit difficult as he's able to move around all his organs and body parts to wherever he wants in his body and can even ooze through cracks in the ground.

* GroinAttack: Episode 3 has Yusuke (in his [[AstralProjection ghost state]]) taking control of an unconscious young teenage schoolgirl's body so that he can protect Kuwabara who is on his way to school. During his fight against the school thugs that had tried to attack Kuwabara, Yusuke (in the body of the schoolgirl) is able to battle and defeat each of them with no problem and in the end, he delievers three groin kicks to the last thug before knocking him out with a hard right punch. Afterwards, Yusuke leaves the body of the young teenage schoolgirl, who is quite shocked to see what has transpired.

* InfinityPlusOneSword: a non-video game version but given that Kuwabara's dimensional sword can cut space and dimensions, it's heavily implied that his sword can cut through anything or anyone regardless of how durable or strong. Hell, his dimensional sword was the only thing that [[InvincibleVillain Sensui]] had to actively [[NotSoInvincibleVillain avoid]] rather than [[NoSell tank like he had been doing to Hiei and Kurama's attacks.]]



* ImAHumanitarian: After Yusuke [[spoiler:becomes a demon]], he no longer regards the casual eating of innocent human beings as an atrocity, and casually tells [[spoiler:his ancestor]] that if eating humans is what will restore his strength, he'll gladly kidnap a few innocent human beings ("really bad ones" in the English dub) and [[KickTheDog "stuff them down his throat himself"]] if that's what it takes to get a good fight out of him. He compares it to humans eating hamburgers, saying that a species higher on the food chain preying on one lower is just the natural order, and that humans have simply thought themselves above it.

Later, after Yusuke dies, he sees Kuwabara rescue Keiko from some thugs, let himself get beat up and study his heart out to save a friend's job (thus preventing his family from living on the streets), pulling Keiko out of a fire, and going through humiliating lengths to save a kitten.

* OrcRaisedByElves: Kurama is a reincarnation of a [[{{youkai}} silver-haired fox demon]] that born into a human child called Shuichi Minamino. In a beginning, he only would stay in his human body until regaining forces to come back, but the loving cares of his human mother made Kurama emotional bonds with her at the point of wanting to save her life when she was ill at the start of the series. First appearing as a possible enemy, when he saw the efforts of Yusuke for saving him and his mother at cost of his own life, Kurama decides to join to his side without hesitation, and later convince [[HeterosexualLifePartners demon Hiei]] to do the same.
