** 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 YoshihiroTogashi and Franchise/SailorMoon creator NaokoTakeuchi would marry.

** Finally, there's the Makai ruler Mukuro's stepfather. He outfitted her with cybernetics to turn her into his sex-slave at birth, and started raping her as soon as the procedure was complete. This continued throughout her childhood until she disfigured herself with acid so she'd be too unattractive for him to be interested, at which point he simply threw her out. Just to make sure she wouldn't try to kill him later on, he implanted Mukuro with false memories of him having been nice to her before. He had to implant these memories because he'd never shown her any kindness in her life.

** Several characters in ''Yu Yu'' tend to be paralleled with ones from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable'', as the two manga ran roughly alongside each other with the authors of both series being friends. The most prominent example is between Kuwabara and Okuyasu Nijimura, two idiotic, pompadour-sporting delinquents who initially appear as antagonists but quickly pull [[HeelFaceTurn heel-face turns]].

In pretty much any FanDub of ''DiU'', Okuyasu will sound as close as possible to Chris Sabat's Kuwabara.

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

** Kurama's fight with Roto leaves him with a temporary X-shaped scar on his left cheek. A few years later Megumi Ogata would provide the voice of Kenshin Himura for the ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' Drama [=CDs=].

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Some reactions when the show was ported to Toonami from Creator/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.

** The ''Meikai Shito Hen'' movie was released in Spain many years before the anime itself was, and it featured a completely different voice cast that got replaced by the series's when it was redubbed. Although the latter is the most known and liked dub, among other things for having a slightly better translation and voice acting, many people feel the first dub had much better casting choices (see WTH, Casting Agency? below)


Added DiffLines:

* WTHCastingAgency: The most criticized aspect of the Spanish dub, aside from the awful translation and overuse of Joaquín Gómez's voice, was its voice casting for the main characters. Detractors typically point out that Kuwabara and Hiei sound too much like elderly men to fit their characters, Yusuke speaks too funny to be taken seriously in dramatic moments, and for Kurama, while his voice actress sounds really ''a lot'' like Megumi Ogata, she had no experience voicing male characters and it shows through. In contrast, the first dub of the second movie, which was done by a different cast, is felt to have much better casting choices (although whether they lived it up acting wise is very hotly debated).

** In episode 3, part of the conflict was Okubo losing his permission to have a job. In Japan, students can't get jobs unless they have permission from their school because it could interfere with their studies. Naturally, this will fly over some American's heads. So, in the dub, it was mentioned that Okubo's job was working with at the school, which makes a little more sense to American viewers.

** The Spanish dub, while featuring rather good voice performances, became unintentionally funny due to two flaws: its horridly translated dialogues and the fact that its dub director Joaquín Gómez insisted in voicing half of the characters of the series ''by himself''. The latter is specially notable because Gómez is not a man of thousand voices, and it makes all them sound either like one and the same or downright ridiculous for how forced are their different tones.

* SeasonalRot: The Three Kings arc suffers from this. Common criticism involves Kuwabara being demoted to extra, the heroes not being heroic and an attempt to replicate the Dark Tournament arc but made most of the fights anti-climatic. The manga has it even worse at it showed about five battles that were very short.
