* CounterpartComparison: Given how prominent this show and [[DragonballZ DBZ]] were in the West during the early 2000s, it's no surprise that Hiei gets this with Vegeta. Both were originally slated to be [[ArcVillain arc villains]], but proved to be so popular that they ended up becoming major supporting characters for the rest of the series. Additionally, both are notable for being short, but powerful, [[AntiHero anti-heroes]] with black, spiky hair, and each are shown prioritizing training over social interactions in attempts to overcome the protagonists in strength. This was also the case during both mangas' serialization in ''ShonenJump''. Yoshihiro Togashi handed out a limited-print doujinshi after ''Yu Yu'' ended, which included a drawing of Majin Vegeta and Dabura, noting that some people "looked at Hiei and saw this."

** 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]].



* FriendlyFandoms: With ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', due to the ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable Diamond is Unbreakable]]'' arc of ''JoJo'' and ''Yu Yu'' both running in ''Weekly Shonen Jump'' at around the same time, both manga sharing similar characterizations & themes, and their authors being friends.



* 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.

** Not to mention Chu and Jin, two characters who remain popular despite comparatively little screentime. Of course one of the factors of Chu's darkhorseness is because of his voice being Creator/NorioWakamoto. And then [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNkATKq0bUw this]].[[note]]Ore no Chuu wa dorre da?[[/note]]. As well as being a WildCard {{Badass}} turning the trope of the usual TrainingFromHell [[CurbStompBattle results]] into a balanced and unpredictable fight.

* 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.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The anime made Sakyo out to be a character you can almost sympathize with [[spoiler:especially when he dies]], while the manga makes him out to be a [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney very]] rich businessman with very sick hobbies.

* {{Narm}}: Even though ''Manga/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!"

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

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