* 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."

* 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.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The subplot of Mr. Iwamoto trying to frame Yusuke for stealing from his classmates. There was really no purpose to it other than to allow Yusuke to use the Psychic Spyglass, which was ultimately its only use in the story.

* 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!"

* 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.
