During ''[=YuYu=] Hakusho'''s initial run in Japan, it was one of the few shows to compete at all with ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' during the early '90s. It is a classic {{shonen}} 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 Toonami with an edited weekday version. However, its fans are ''very'' hardcore. 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 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.

** When Cartoon Network aired this as part of Toonami (back when Toonami was a daytime anime series that aired a lot of series that, these days, would air uncut or lightly edited on the Saturday night version that's a part of AdultSwim), the episode that had Yusuke fighting a female demon who was actually a man had it changed to a [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative bitch]] who faked her injuries so she can weaken any male fighters who [[WouldntHitAGirl have qualms about beating up women]]. Also, Chu (the drunken fighter) was changed to a boisterous Australian who [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass acted like a fool to mask the fact that he was a powerful fighter]].

I added an example, and removed an example because it didn't represent the trope and is subjective information.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: ** Kurama and Hiei have always been the series' most popular characters.

* EvenTheGuysWantHim: ** Kurama and Hiei also happens to have always been the series' most popular characters.strongest stomach for cruelty and such, but even he got visually pissed off when Bakken was purposefully extending his fight with Kurama. In fact Hiei was so mad, he would've used his Dragon of the Darkness flame again, which would've killed him in his current state.

** One of the biggest is how Yusuke dies in the beginning. He saves a child who ran out into the street with a soccer ball, only to later be told that the soccer ball would have cushioned the child, saving the boy's life without leaving a scratch on him. This is a situation that would have, without Yusuke's unfortunate intervention, been exactly the same as what happened to Tsubasa in ''CaptainTsubasa''.

cross works
Added DiffLines:
* VictoryIsBoring: Yusuke falls victim to this after [[spoiler: he wins the dark tournament, although he is then punished for his complacency as the next arc starts with him getting kidnapped]]. It then happens AGAIN after [[spoiler: beating Sensui, because being an S-rank demon leaves him as the most powerful fighter in the human world by miles.]]

Added DiffLines:
* ElectionDayEpisode: The final story arc features an invocation of this. While this isn't an election in a conventional sense (as there are no ballots of any kind cast), but the Tournament for the Kingship of Demon world is referred to by Yusuke Urameshi as being a "Presidential election where we cast our votes with our fists".

** The Brazilian dub had this in a lesser scale, with a few names using "L" in lieu of "R" (such as Rinku = Linku and Roto = Loto), but Chu's name was separated in two syllables, as ''Chi-yu''.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Kuwabara is introduced as a delinquent and is shown doing nothing but repeatedly trying to beat up Yusuke. Later, after Yusuke dies, he sees Kuwabara rescue Kayko 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 Kayko out of a fire, and going through humiliating lengths to save a kitten. * KarmaHoudini: The arsonist that lit Yusuke and Atsuko's apartment on fire, which nearly killed Kayko in the process during her recovery of Yusuke's body, is never mentioned to have been apprehended.

He used to be a chain-smoking, gambling, greedy delinquent without a goal in life (and, according to Botan, he was even arrested before), but if him jumping in the way of a runaway car to save a wandering child is any indication, he wasn't all that bad. * KarmaHoudini: The arsonist that lit Yusuke and Atsuko's apartment on fire, which nearly killed Kayko Keiko in the process during her recovery of Yusuke's body, is never mentioned to have been apprehended.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Keiko/Kayko. The official romanization of her name is Keiko, but for whatever reason Creator/FUNimation chose to spell it Kayko.

Added DiffLines:
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In episode 5 of the TV-Y7/Toonami version, it is still made very clear that Yusuke's mom is drinking harder then usual to get over the sudden death of her son - not only that, she's hanging out at the bar with crossdressing men.
