Elder Toguro: So let me get this straight... you're paying us... out of your own pocket... to make a little girl cry?'''
Elder Toguro: (beat) I F**KING LOVE BEING A DEMON.'''
An Abridged Series based on YuYu Hakusho, by Lanipatornote It's pronounced lan-ee-pah-tor (emphasis on the last syllable), not lan-ee-pay-ter.. His YouTube account can be found here This set itself apart from other abridged series by focusing more on playing around with the characters rather than mocking the tropes of the shows. It has plenty of the latter kind of humor, though.Lanipator also snubbed LittleKuriboh in the famous incident that triggered The War of the Abridged Series Creators.
George the Ogre: Lord Koenma, we have a big problem.
Koenma: I'll say we do, dude. The power went out and now the only TV that's working is this one, and I can't change the friggin channel, man. I can't get anything. No topless car washing, topless volleyball, PBS, nothing!
Yusuke: How often could you possibly have a use for that technique?
Kuwabara: More than you, you son of a bitch!
Bat Deduction: Kurama gets interrupted while he's in the middle of an especially insane one while trying to figure out the proper door to enter in Maze Castle. Kuwabara just picks the one with the strongest energy behind it, which is apparently the same door Kurama was building up to.
(After seeing Kurama use his rose whip for the first time)
Kuwabara: Now that's what I call flower power.
Kuwabara: Shut up Urameshi.
Beware the Nice Ones: Kurama obviously, but he does have less patience for stupidity than in the normal series.
Kurama: If you say or do anything to annoy me in the next 24 hours, I swear to Koenma I will cut you in half with a fucking rose! Or do I need to remind you I have that capability?
Book Dumb: Kuwabara is even dumber than in the series, to the point that he doesn't even know what a book is.
Kuwabara: What the hell are these things?
Breaking the Fourth Wall: The characters have referred to Lani by name several times, and also frequently lampshade the show's Schedule Slip, such as wondering if Kuwabara will be able to hold onto a ledge for the the year or so it'll take for the next episode to come out.
Brick Joke: Koenma looking like a bad carnival prize.
Upon meeting Botan for the first time, Kuwabara asks her out. Yusuke makes a joke about him actually hitting on a girl, to which Kuwabara replies with "I just have a thing for girls with blue hair." Yukina.
Incredibly Lame Pun: Why does Seiryu sound like Hank Hill? Because he's a dealer in strict and cold pain.note A case of Author Appeal as mentioned by Lanipator on a few convention panels he loves horrible puns.
Is This Thing Still On?: Koenma doesn't notice that he continued recording after outlining Yusuke's mission, so it also has him talking about sucking in his gut and the itch you always get once you can't scratch it.
To elaborate, Genbu is essentially Larry the Cable Guy, Byakko seems to be Billy Bob Thornton's character from Sling Blade, Seriyuu is a flat out expy for Hank Hill, and Suzaku sounds like Jim Varney's Ernest character, right down to calling everyone "Vern."
Fred Tennedy of the Black Black club is Ted Kennedy.
Show Within a Show: Poems With Hiei on DTV. Canceled to make room for Rhymes with Rando, which in turn was cancelled to make room for The Blue Collar Comedy Beasts. However, Hiei has to wait until the Dark Tournament to get his show back on the air.
Hiei: Well I didn't float here downriver if that's what you're asking.
Kurama: Nobody insinuated that, Hiei.
Hiei: Good, because that's not what happened!
Episode 'Rescue Yukina' as well (Hiei again)
Yusuke: What are you doing this for, anyway? Isn't this supposed to be Botan's thing?
Hiei: I'm not hurting for work, I don't know what you're talking about.
Yusuke: ...good to hear, I guess...
Technology Marches On: Played with. Obviously, at the time of the original episode's airing, a VHS tape would be a commonplace thing for Spirit World to use, but much fun is made of the fact that they're now practically obsolete.
