* StrawmanHasAPoint: He's completely ridiculous in every other respect, but Suzuka is right that people tend to aggrandize things that are shrouded in mystery, this being the reason he gives for keeping his "beautiful" face hidden under clown makeup.

** The Koorime are made to appear to us as heartless bitches who would willingly condemn a child to death just because his mother [[HumanMomNonhumanDad made him with someone]] [[FantasticRacism from a different race]] (albeit a demon) and he looks "a little" {{creepy|Child}} at birth. Even his sister, by far the purest creature from the series, thinks their whole kind deserves to be killed for what they did to her, her mother, and her brother (although she also expresses that she sees it as a form of MercyKill). The problem is, their point is completely valid. All the male offspring so far have killed many Koorime, who can only reproduce at intervals of over a century. And Hiei was only [[RetiredMonster saved]] by ThePowerOfFriendship.
** 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.
** Mr. Akashi and Mr. Iwamoto are no doubt irredeemable jerk asses, but their attempts to get Yusuke and Kuwabara expelled aren't unjustified, as they weren't exactly model students. While Kuwabara made an effort to be a stright-A student and avoid his delinquent lifestyle, it was implied that Yusuke never improved his school life.

* {{Narm}}: Even though YuYuHakusho is usually good at avoiding this, it's really noticeable when it shows up. One such scene is with Sensui's sacred energy armor. Not only does it look funny but he just had to add to the narm by saying "I'm a living breathing sentient tank!"

* BaseBreaker: Shinobu Sensui. Some like him as a [[EvilIsCool suave]], [[ThePhilosopher Intellectual]], [[MagnificentBastard Clever]] FallenHero turned Misanthropic Villain, though detractors feel that he is [[GodModeSue ridiculously over intelligent and powered]].

* 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.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Some reactions when the show was ported to Toonami from AdultSwim as the shift to weekday afternoons meant it had to be edited losing some of the luster of the fights that come off as awkward without the uncut content. Even worse was that the show only reached the Saint Beasts Arc when it was on Adult Swim, denying fans of seeing the Dark Tournament and Chapter Black arc uncut on TV.

** During the flashback of Itsuki meeting Sensui, Sensui asks if Itsuki has any regrets, and Itsuki names a TV show and a (at the time) celebrity who would be performing on it, which surprised Sensui because he watched the show too, and realized how... human Youkai were. They obviously couldn't name the TV show or celebrity in the dub because people wouldn't know who it is; but they still get the point across by having Itsuki say, "My favorite TV show will be airing its final episode tomorrow, and I want to see how it ends".

*** The manga keeps in the mention of the original TV show, but it uses the format to explain that this person referenced was a celebrity in Japan at the time in a little note outside the panels.

*** On the subject of Mr. Akashi, he's a SadistTeacher who deliberately tries to get one of the main characters expelled from school and he is voiced by Sean Schemel in the English dub. Sounds an awful lot like [[Anime/YuGiOhGX Dr. Crowler]], doesn't he?


Added DiffLines:

** Mr. Iwamoto crosses it again in episode six when he frames Yusuke for stealing from his classmates. When Yusuke outs him as the thief, he claims that he must have planted them on him and then insults his mother to goad him into hitting him, giving him an excuse to expel him.

* SignatureScene: Yusuke's HeroicSacrifice at the beginning of the series is remembered by everyone. Hell, it's the page picture for the trope.
