  • Running in a crowd, in a faceless town, I need to feel the touch of a friend... The original Japanese version isn't bad either, and both are hella earwormmy.
  • The first ending (The homework doesn't end) is an upbeat tone that really screams The '90s. Especially its Japanese counterpart. A great introduction to the series.
  • The fourth ending (The Sun Will Shine Again), especially when you see photos of Yusuke and Keiko, foreshadowing that they'll be together by the time the series ends with a heartwarming and upbeat tune.
  • Sensui's Terriority Sensui's Leitmotif. The sound of the end of the world, a creepy and dissonant soundscape mixing into a catchy beat half-way through.
  • Yusuke's Power Up, a.k.a. Demon Yusuke's Leitmotif. This is what it sounds like when nobody becomes something larger than life!
  • Time Limit, a.k.a. Younger Toguro's One-Winged Angel theme. Oddly punchy, not sinister but tragic, yet suggestive of power all the same. Yes, that's perfect for the Younger Toguro brother.
  • The Toguro Brothers, is an unreleased track that establishes both Toguros in musical form perfectly. The eerie opening sets the atmosphere for the elder brother whilst the heavy trombone draws attention to the younger Toguro. It's almost like the brothers are standing right in front of you ready to kill.
  • Struggle of Sadness, an unreleased track that inspires hope even in the darkest of times.
  • Tatakai no Hate. The build-up is immense, and the pay-off fitting. Its debut is in Episode 89, when Kuwabara manages to master the power of his dimensional sword so he, Hiei and Kurama escape from Itsuki's territory and help Yusuke defeat Sensui... too bad Yusuke gets killed right after said escape. That this track was later used in the final battle is just the cherry on top at this point.
  • Battle Time could just as well be the series' fight scene anthem, building up heavy suspense in the heat of the moment.
  • Monster Suit works in the more frantic moments, with the last minute being perfect for fast-paced battles.
  • Kurama's theme is quite fitting for his Cunning Like a Fox personality. Sadly it only plays a few times in the show itself.
  • "Inochi O Kakete" only plays a few times, but always manages to leave an impact.
  • Storm is an unreleased tune that has frantic energy to it that feels like things are escalating beyond one's control before it ultimately comes tumbling down. It sounds like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time's standard battle theme with a punctuated beat.
  • GLEAM ~ Yami ni Hikaru, Touya's image song, is a very beautiful bop. It would be nice to play at discos, most particularly the chorus!
  • Tsumuji Kaze de FLY AWAY is a must listen. And the translated version of it is very touching...
  • Kiri no Naka no Sunaipa sounds amazing; the sound in the beginning is very cool.
  • Yu Yu Hakusho Sad Song. This isn't its name, but does describe the feeling: a melancholy and poignant tune that plays in certain moments of the anime (like Yusuke's mother mourning her son after he dies for the first time).
