** Kirishima, one of Kuwabara's friends, was ranked 9th place in the first popularity poll despite his minor role.



** Mr. Iwamoto, who is disliked for being a SadistTeacher who seems to dislike Yusuke and Kuwabara just for existing. While he should be considered a HateSink, he's also hated for being a huge KarmaHoudini after he tried to frame Yusuke for stealing (and in the anime, giving Mr. Akashi the idea to erase Kuwabara's test answer).



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Early on, we are introduced to Rando, a very sadistic demon who steals other peoples' fighting techniques and then kills them so that he can be the only one who knows said techniques. He is the main antagonist of the series' first arc and nearly kills both Yusuke and Kuwabara. However, he is defeated when one of his techniques backfires, and he is never seen again, even though he is not killed or permanently incapacitated. Rando could've been a recurring villain who had new techniques every time he was seen, always itching to torture and kill Yusuke for humiliating him and handing him his first defeat, but he never came back.

** Kuwabara's friends, Kirishima, Okubo, and Sawamura, could have made interesting editions to Team Urameshi. They could have been the three teens that developed powers during the Chapter Black Saga instead of three complete strangers.

* HarsherInHindsight: The Spirit World Sect Terrorist who appeared in the next to last chapter are eerily similar to modern day religiously-motivated Terror groups, most notably [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aum_Shinrikyo Aum Shinrikyo]] who committed the 1995 Tokyo subway sarin Attack only months later. In retrospect, [[AdaptedOut omitting]] that chapter was wise on Studio Pierrot's part.

** After the Dark Tournament, Kuwabara wonders if Yusuke lost his powers after his fight with Toguro. In Yoshihiro Togashi's next long-runner, ''Manga/HunterXHunter,'' [[spoiler: Gon loses his ability to use Nen after a heated battle]] after the Chimera Ant Arc.

* RetroactiveRecognition: A crapton, with a few good examples listed above. Most notable is Creator/VicMignogna as Uraurashima, though Creator/TravisWillingham as Yanagisawa is notable as well.

** A minor example from the Dark Tournament arc is George suggesting Hiei attack Bui while the latter is busy removing his armor. While the girls chew him out for suggesting such a dishonorable act, they seem to forget a very important detail. The tournament isn't an officially sanctioned martial arts competition. It's BloodSport where the only consistent rules are 1) No interfering with the match. 2) Stay in the ring. When most matches are won by killing your opponent, every fighter should be a CombatPragmatist.

Umm, did she forget that he used to be a murderous criminal?



* WhatAnIdiot: Kuwabara during his fight with Onji. While the fight is never depicted in the manga outside of the results, the anime actually shows Kuwabara almost immediately running into Onji's attack and not even trying to avoid it. There's also Hiei trying to mock Kaito by almost immediately saying "hot" and getting his soul taken as a result. You can't really blame the others for teasing him over it after that happens.

** Koenma instructing Yusuke how to use the Spirit Gun on Mr. Iwamoto without telling him that he could only use it once a day, right before sending him on a Case where he would have needed it.

** Sensui can get this, mostly [[AmericansHateTingle in the West]]. Some (mostly male fans) say he's [[InvincibleVillain too powerful]]. Others (mostly female fans) say he's "not bishie enough to be gay."



** While some fans liked Shizuru for her CoolBigSis personality, others hated her for [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale the way she treats her younger brother]] because they see it as FridgeHorror of the possible origin of Kuwabara's desire to never fight with women.
** The Armed Church of the True Disciples, who appeared in Chapter 174 of the Manga, were so disliked by fans, due to being [[FlatCharacter one-dimensional]] {{Straw Character}}s who had little to no personality, that the manga was cancelled at Chapter 175 and the True Disciples were AdaptedOut of the anime. Though this is a unique case of this being a non-HateSink induced IntentionalAudienceReaction being that Togashi was displeased with the publishers forcing him to continue his series with another arc after the Three Kings arc, of which was itself a [[PostScriptSeason publisher mandated continuation]], and thus resorted to a WriterRevolt to deliberately sabotage it so that it could finally end in the way he wanted it to conclude.

* AssPull: Many fans felt that [[spoiler: Yusuke being part demon]] that came right smack out of nowhere with no foreshadowing whatsoever and led the Sensui arc to an Anticlimactic conclusion.

** It's pretty easy to compare Kurama to [[Franchise/KingDomHearts Marluxia.]] Both are very feminine-looking, they have essentially the same ElementalPowers, (that is to say, PetalPower) and are very ruthless and manipulative. They even have similar hairstyles and colors.

* EvilMakesYouUgly: Some fans would agree that Hiei's full demon form isn't very pretty. After he agrees to work with Yusuke we never see this transformation again. It is in one of the movies, where he pretends to turn evil before attacking his opponent.

** In mixture of this and HeartwarmingInHindsight, in a manga-exclusive story at the end of the fifth volume, when Kurama saves Yusuke and Kuwabara from a gang of riled street thugs, who have mistaken them for a duo of half breed demon [[CriminalDoppelganger look-alikes]], by throwing a rose, he quips that they can call him Tuxedo Mask. Years later Creator/YoshihiroTogashi and Franchise/SailorMoon creator NaokoTakeuchi would marry.
