Yusuke Urameshi (The
Age: 14 (16 at the end of the series)
Personality: Yusuke is an energetic, talkative, funny and
happy-go-lucky guy. He loves to fight strong opponents. He definitely isn't
the role model of school boy, but he is a very nice guy who will do anything
to protect his loved ones and his friends. He can be very funny but also
deadly serious at times.
Techniques/Weapons: Spirit Gun, Shotgun, Spirit Wave
Yusuke is a bad high school student and a delinquent feared by many in the
neighborhood. He lives with his mother Atsuko who is a alcoholic and it's
unknown who the father is. After his unexpected death, Yusuke (in his spirit
form) must do good deeds to return to the human world and to get another
chance to live. During the separation of body and spirit Yusuke learns more
about his mother, his rival Kuwabara and himself. At last Yusuke succeeds to
revive and becomes a Spirit Detective. He meets the demon thieves Kurama and
Hiei in one of his missions and becomes friends with these enemies. Soon he
becomes the pupil of the infamous Genkai (with much luck though) who teaches
him more than just martial art. After the Dark Tournament he has to save
the Human World (his home town) from the plans of former Spirit Detective Sensui,
but Yusuke dies in this mission. This time he resurrects by himself, the
surprising factor is: Yusuke has demonic blood streaming in his body! After
he killed Sensui he decides to go to Makai to meet the demon who gave him
the blood, his 'father': War God Raizen.
Age: 14 (16 at the end of the series)
Personality: Kuwabara probably is the least intelligent person of the
four main characters. But on the other hand he might have the purest heart
of the foursome. He also is the less cruel of all, maybe because of the four
main characters he's the only full human... Kuwabara is also a very loyal
friend who values friendship a lot.
Techniques/Weapons: Sense Spirit Energy, Spirit Sword, Twin Blade,
Experimental Sword, Spirit Shuriken, Dimension Blade
It's unknown who his parents are, he lives with his older sister Shizuru,
whose spirit ability might even be stronger than his. Kuwabara is just like
Yusuke a bad student who always gets into trouble, they both like fighting,
but Yusuke appears to be much stronger every time.. Kuwabara wants to defeat
Yusuke so badly and is so excited to fight him that he gets into another
fight as soon as he's recovered from his injuries. However, they become
close friends with much respect for each other.
(The Romantic Warrior)
Age: 15 (17 at the end of the series)
Personality: Kurama is an extremely intelligent fighter, he thinks
even a few steps more ahead than a normal person and will never let others
know what he is thinking. Even in the most difficult situations he manages
to stay calm and think about the best solution. He will transform into Youko
whenever he is in great danger or when he gets mad.
Techniques/Weapons: Rose Whip, Rose Whip Thorn Wheel,
Bloodsucking Plant, Grass of Death, Tree of Evil Thoughts
When he was chased by a Spirit Hunter and got injured, Kurama (in his fox
form) fled to the Human World and his spirit combined with that of the unborn baby
of Shiori Minamino. Later he was born as Shuichi Minamino, his human mother
loved him with all her heart and taught the once so cold hearted Kurama what
human love is. Kurama who actually wanted to return to Makai as soon as he
regained his powers learned how to love and to care and found himself unable
to leave his mother. So he stayed to take care of her. When she got sick and
couldn't be treated he decided to join Hiei and Gouki to steal the three
Spirit Artifacts to save her life. And so he met Yusuke, who saved his life.
At the end Shuichi lives with his mother, stepfather and little brother.
Youko Kurama (The
Personality: Youko Kurama is a ruthless killer and also an extremely
intelligent strategist. In Makai the youkai still fear him.
Techniques/Weapons: Mimosa, Shokuyou Butsu (Don't know English), Tree
Spirit Demon Slash Punch, Floating Plant
Youko's closest friend and companion was Kurounu who died during one of
their robberies in Makai. Kurama is still quite upset about his best
friend's death, the feeling which the enemies of the second YuYu movie took
Kurama was also the leader of a group of thieves, his second mate was Yomi
who would later become one of the three most powerful demons in Makai, but
Yomi was a ruthless and brainless fighter who didn't want to listen to the
much smarter Kurama. When Yomi ran his own group of thieves and let many
loyal followers die by acting on instinct instead of thoughts, Kurama sent
an assassin to kill him, but this assassin failed and only blinded him.
Name: Hiei (Jaganshi, The
can be very stubborn and sometimes even selfish. He is very straight in what
he wants to say, he'll never say more than needed. Unlike the others Hiei
refuses contact, maybe afraid to owe anybody anything, and it seems very
difficult to gain his trust. He was a mindless killer and thief in the
beginning, but after he met Yusuke he began to change. He started caring
about other people and one could clearly see that Yusuke had rubbed off on
Inferno of the Darkness Flame, Sword of the Darkness Flame, Dragon of the
Darkness Flame, Fist of the Mortal Flame
Hiei's mother Hina is an Ice Maiden who lived in the
Ice Country of Makai (a big iceberg that floats above Makai). Ice maiden can
produce valuable gems by crying: their tears will turn into gems. And these
Ice Maidens don't need men to get pregnant and always give birth to girls.
So when Hiei was born, he was considered a monster that would ruin the
country (a so called Forbidden Child) and Hina a traitor. Ruri, Hina's best
friend, was ordered to drop the child from a high ground, which she did. But
not before telling the child to stay alive to come back and kill her, and
giving him Hina's Ice-Tear Gem, which actually was the tear that Hina shed
while giving birth to Hiei. Hiei was a newborn baby, but understood and
remembered every word said. And he was willing to come back to kill the Ice
A group of thieves found the baby and took care of him.
They gave him the name 'Hiei'. Hiei enjoyed fighting and killing, he became
so strong and so ruthless that even the thieves feared him. But in one of
his fights he lost his Ice-Tear Gem. Now there were two things he needed to
find: his homeland Ice Country and his mother's inheritance. He realized
that he needed a third eye to find the two things, so he went to the surgeon
Shigure to implant the third eye Jagan. Hiei lost his Demon Energy and
became a demon of the weakest level, Shigure taught him some sword fighting
techniques. Now that he has the Jagan it was no problem at all to find the
Ice Country, but when he got there and saw that the place had turned out to
be not more than a ghost city, he suddenly felt no need and no tendency to
kill. He met Ruri who told him that Hina had died many years ago and that
Hina's daughter (Hiei's twin sister) had left the Ice Country to find her
brother. As Hiei left Ruri realized that he was the child that she dropped
from the cliff.
Genkai (Master Genkai, Master Jeremiah)
Personality: She is a smart and a proud woman. She is definitely a
no-nonsense, and although she can be rude at times, especially when she's
training Yusuke, and of course when she's facing her enemies. But to other
people she's fairly nice.
As she said: "I don't want to be a heroine, it just happens the ones I fight
are bad guys." All she wants is to have a normal life. Of course she would
protect the human world from evil demons because she has the strength and
ability to, but she would never stand up to be known as their savior.
Techniques/Weapons: Spirit Gun, Shotgun Blast, Fist of Cleansing,
Spirit Light Mirror Counter, Spirit Wave
There isn't much known about the past of this lady. But
we know that she has been invited to the Dark Tournament once before. That
was many years ago as she was a young, beautiful girl and already a
marvelous fighter. She and Toguro trained together, were teammates and won
the Tournament. As one of the winners she wishes that she would never be
invited to this cruel event ever again. But years later she joined the
Urameshi Team voluntary. It's obvious that she hasn't forgot about her
former teammate with whom she was in love with.
As Genkai realized that she has reached a high age and
should pass her techniques to someone, she starts a tournament to find a
successor. Yusuke wins and becomes her student. He soon finds out that her
training is the toughest he's ever experienced... as well as the best.
Age: a few hundreds years
Personality: Sometimes Koenma doesn't just look like a kid, he can
act like a kid too... Especially towards Ogre. But as the series progresses,
Koenma gets more serious and starts making his own decisions. In the Sensui
saga, we learn about his feelings of guilt towards Sensui. After all, he
gave him the orders for the mission that changed Sensui's whole life. So he
decided to use the Evil Sealing Ring against Sensui, but unfortunately it
didn't work. Sensui set things up so that Koenma would use some of the ki of
the Ring to save Tsukihito (the Game-master), and with his own superior
saint-like ki there wasn't a chance that he'd be captured. Also in the
Sensui saga he refused to obey his father's orders for the first time: he
refused to return to the Spirit World and followed Yusuke to Makai to fight
Sensui. In the last story about the Makai rulers, Koenma secretly gave
Kurama a location to train strong A-class demon hoping people from the
Spirit World wouldn't discover.
Techniques/Weapons: Evil-Sealing Ring
Koenma is the son of the ruler of the Spirit World,
Enma Daioh. When his father is away, he has to take the responsibilities.
Mostly he does the paperwork and gives orders to the Spirit Detective. The
closest person to him should be Ogre, who is his servant. However, Koenma
isn't always nice to him and even takes his frustration out on Ogre.
Age: 14 (16 at end)
Personality: Very smart and caring, especially with Yusuke, but she's
not afraid to slap him when he makes her angry.
Techniques/Weapons: Bitch Slap
Keiko is Yusuke's closest friend and girlfriend. Keiko and Yusuke knew each
other at a young age and have been friends since. She probably knows and
cares for Yusuke more than anyone else (yes, including Yusuke's drunkard
mother). Keiko is smart, kind, and well liked by almost everyone. And Keiko
is usually the only one who can make Yusuke listen to reason.
Personality: She is a very cheerful girl. She might not be the
smartest, but she is a very nice person and is always willing to help.
Although she isn't human or demon, she has the feelings of love and care for
Yusuke and his friends.
She is known as the Spirit Guide, who guides spirits to
the Spirit World. After Yusuke died she took him to the Spirit World to see
Koenma, and when he was waiting for his resurrection she kept him company
and helped him many times. So she is also considered Yusuke's guardian.
Later when Yusuke becomes the Spirit Detective, she becomes his assistant
and also the messenger who travels from the Spirit World to the Human World to
bring important messages, often concerning the mission. It's not explained
very well in the anime, but from the manga we know that she's neither human
nor demon, the appearance in the Human World is just her 'shell', she has no real
Raizen (The War God)
Personality: Raizen is powerful but he respects his opponents. Like
he respects his opponents, his opponents respect him as a worthy opponent
and as a friend. Raizen won't always kill his enemies, especially not those
with potential to beat him. Maybe that's the wish of great fighters, find a
worthy opponent, even if it could mean it's own death.
Techniques/Weapons: We never really got to see them, but I'm sure
he's got some good ones
Yusuke's ancestor and one of the three rulers of Makai,
AKA War-God Raizen. He is the one, who helped Yusuke to discover his real
demonic powers during Yusuke's battle with Sensui in Makai. Yusuke won the
battle with ease, but he wasn't happy about it. Yusuke swore to find this
person who interfered with his battle and kill him. Raizen couldn't show his
true powers in the series or manga, cause he died pretty quick after his
rendezvous with Yusuke. But not in battle, he starved...
Yukina (Ice Maiden)
Personality: Contrary to her brother, Yukina is a very easy going
person with a sweet personality. She seems a bit naive since she still
hasn't found out that Kuwabara has a crush on her. When she was kidnapped
she had to face both physical and mental torture. One time one of the guards
wanted to take her out of danger, but got killed in front of her. From then
on she didn't want to see anyone suffer or get in danger for her anymore.
Although she had no fighting abilities, she chose to run away from her home
and risk her life to find her brother. So although she looks very sweet and
cute, she is a very brave and strong young girl.
Techniques/Weapons: Healing Powers, Ice Tear Gems
Yukina is Hiei's twin sister and also the one that Hiei
has been looking for for a long time. Yukina grew up in Koorime, but
disliked the place for its rules. When she found out about having a brother
and when her mother died, she fled from her place of birth to seek for her
older brother. She was kidnapped by Tarukane, a wealthy but cruel human
merchant. He knew about the priceless Ice Tear Gem that Ice Maidens produce
when they cry and tortured Yukina to get his hands on the precious gems.
The Spirit World finds out about this underground
business and send Yusuke to rescue the beautiful girl. Kuwabara who also saw
the video tape fell in love with her immediately and joins the mission. Hiei
also hurries to Tarukane's villa and there they meet each other for the
first time. However, Hiei has never told her that he is her brother.
Later Yukina will live at Genkai's far away from the city. Kuwabara visits
her as often as he can, he never stopped loving her.
Personality: Cruel and obnoxious
Techniques/Weapons: Fists mainly
Gouki is just another criminal in the Spirit World.
Gouki is wanted for many previous crimes and makes quite a name for himself
stealing. He has a reputation for killing any pursuers. Hiei recruited Gouki
to join up with him and Kurama to steal the Artifacts of Darkness. Gouki had
been hanging around in a park eating the souls of kids. Gouki then ran into
and defeated Yusuke in their first fight, but in the second round Yusuke's
outsmarted Gouki by jamming a stick in his mouth and then firing a Spirit
Gun into his mouth... defeating him.
Name: Toguro Ototo
Personality: In the beginning when he's introduced it's easy to
conclude he is a bad guy with no mercy. But at the end of the Tournament we
know much more about this tough guy: he's never healed from the pain and
guilt of the incident in which his pupils got killed. He chose to become a
demon (and sell his spirit to the darkness) because he didn't want to be
weak and most of all because he has never forgiven himself for the deaths of
his pupils. In the end he even chose to go to the most cruel part of hell to
punish himself over and over again. Genkai called him a fool for his
stubbornness. However, Toguro is a person who has been through a lot and who
just lost the inner fight.
Techniques/Weapons: He basically only can raise his power. He just
uses basic power skills to fight with.
The first time we meet Toguro in the series is
during Yusuke's mission to save the captured Yukina. Yusuke and Kuwabara
fought the Toguro brothers and won. (Later we learn they lost the match on
purpose). Toguro works for Sakyo, who also is part of the organization that
started the Dark Tournament. During the Tournament we learn that Toguro
actually was a human, he had his own dojo and pupils. But a terrible thing
happened before the Tournament: a powerful demon killed all his pupils and
left Toguro in pain and grief. In the final of the Tournament he defeated
that same demon and wished to become a demon so he could remain strong
forever. It's also revealed that Genkai and he were teammates and fought
side by side. But his wish separated them. It's not explained very well, but
it seems very likely that they were in love and that they still care a lot
about each other.
Toguro has an older brother who can transform into
anything. When the brothers fight together he'll transform into a weapon
(for example sword) which Toguro Ototo will fight with. They form a good
team, but they have different personalities, as Toguro Ototo still has some
sense of honor and respect for his opponent, his brother is a rat and
ruthless killer. We assume that he was a human but also chose to become a
demon. It's not very clear how and when, but we think that he might be a
teammate as well and wished to be a demon.
Shinobu Sensui (The
Personality: Sensui has 7 different personalities, Itsuki said Sensui
created them for himself when he was so desperate and losing his faith in
human nature. One of the people inside him is the philosopher who appears in
the beginning of the Sensui Saga, another personality Yusuke fought was the
monster and killing machine Ichiya, who used his arm as a gun to fire ki
bullets. One of the personality is female who cries a lot. And of course the
main personality Shinobu, that is the original personality of Sensui. He is
also the only personality that can use the Saint Light ki. We don't know
much about the other 3 personalities.
Sensui is a person who's always had a strong sense of honor. Sensui believed
that he was the chosen one to protect the humans from the evil demons, but
when he saw the horrible side of human nature, his only belief was
destroyed; he began to doubt if humans deserved to be protected, and if he
was doing the right thing. He felt guilty for the things he had done for the
human world and chose to terminate humans. You can say that Sensui is a very
stubborn person, and that his stubbornness drove him to his extreme plan.
He's also a very intelligent person, his plan was just perfect, everything
worked out the way he predicted.
Techniques/Weapons: Resshou Ken, Spirit Resshou Ken, Red Ball Wave,
Purple Heat Bullets, Spirit Gun, Saint Light Spirit, Spirit Battle Armor,
Slicing Wind Punch
Sensui has possessed strong spirit energy since he was
a child. Demons were always after him, so he became a fighter very young.
Soon he became a Spirit Detective, and fought against innumerable demons. He
also developed a reputation: not a single demon would survive a fight with
Sensui. The first demon who did survive was Itsuki; probably because he
showed human emotions, Sensui let him live. Itsuki even became his companion
and they fought evil demons side by side. But on one of their missions
Sensui saw the cruel side of the human race: a group of rich guys, who were
in the organization lead by Sakyo, were having a big party and were having
fun torturing a helpless slave demon (which are traded).
Soon he would quit as Spirit Detective. He stole the
Black List Tape, a tape that contains hours of pictures of human cruelty
over the centuries, and disappeared along with Itsuki. Years later he would
save the seriously injured Toguro (the older brother) and continued the plan
Sakyo had in mind before he died: opening a door to Makai, so that the
demons can come to the Human World. He assembled 5 people with special abilities
to accomplish his plan. In the end he was killed by Yusuke, but at the place
he wished to die: Makai, home of all the demons he had killed.
There is not much known about his family, the
closest person to him is Itsuki who is in love with him. However, we don't
think Sensui is actually in love with him too. After Sensui died, Itsuki
took his body away and disappeared into another dimension where they could
peacefully stay away from everything. Sensui's wish was that he wouldn't go
to the Spirit World, even if he died. Itsuki refused to let his love be
judged on the basis of the Spirit World's standards.
Koumori Tsukai (The Bat Tamer)
Personality: Not enough time to establish one
Techniques/Weapons: His speed
Tsukai appears in the episode where Genkai is trying to find an apprentice
to pass down her spirit techniques. He doesn't really attack Yusuke,
but just gets in his way while he is passing through the Devil Forest. He is
very quick but no challenge for Yusuke after his fight with Hiei.
Personality: Man of few words
Techniques/Weapons: Martial Arts, Big Arm Bomber
Kibano is a man of few words, preferring to let his arsenal of martial arts
attacks do his talking for him. Among his more devastating moves is the Big
Arm Bomber, an attack which uses concentrated Spirit Energy to amplify the
power of his already explosive punches. Kibano uses a special helmet that
enhances his Spirit Awareness and allows him to sense the movements of his
opponents in the pitch black arena. He was Yusuke's first match in Genkai's
Tournament, Yusuke had a hard time with this guy, he's strong, quick, and
can sense (instead of see) in the dark. Yusuke is able to defeat him only by
putting one of Genkai's lit cigarettes on his belt and firing a Spirit Gun
Personality: Straight to the point and determined
Techniques/Weapons: Nijitzu, Speed, Spirit "Cannon," Explosive
Shuriken, Tracking Shuriken
One of the semi-finalists in the Genkai Tournament, Kazemaru is well trained
in the Nijitzu art of stealth. His considerable fighting skills put him in
high demand among government officials as a top professional bodyguard.
Kazemaru is able to channel his Spirit Energy through the palm of his hand,
emitting a powerful blast similar to Yusuke's Spirit Gun - but far more
potent. Yusuke has to fight him directly after his fight with Kibano for the
semi-finals. First Kazemaru throws explosive shuriken at Yusuke, who easily
dodges them, but then Kazemaru whips out another type of shuriken. These
shuriken were able to detect Yusuke's spirit energy and followed him
everywhere a few hit a tree and explode, but two more follow him. Yusuke
gets desperate and charges at Kazemura, the shuriken close behind, but just
before Yusuke reaches Kazemura (who is charging a Spirit Cannon) he falls
into a hole in the swamp, thus causing the shuriken to hit Kazemura and KO
Personality: Quiet and mild-mannered
Techniques/Weapons: Fireballs, Whirlwind Slash, Shrinking Technique
A mild-mannered but powerful young fighter, Shorin enters Genkai's
Tournament in hopes of becoming the aging master's pupil. Shorin claims to
be a wandering kenpou master (1st Grade), he remains an enigma for the
greater part of the tournament. Later we discover he is not quite what he
seems. He quickly defeats his first opponent, Chinpou and claims that he was
injured in the process, no one could really see what happened in the
darkness. I know what you're thinking... Kuwabara could have, but Kuwabara
was distracted by Botan. He also defeats Kuwabara in the semi-finals by
shrinking him (After Kuwabara put up a pretty good fight with his Spirit
Personality: Sadistic... simply evil
Techniques/Weapons: Fireballs, Whirlwind Slash, Spirit Gun, Demon
Web, Shrinking Technique, and dozens more
Rando is a demon that specializes in stealing techniques from other fighters
and testing them out on helpless humans, not to mention the people he steals
them from. Rando only has to see a move once in order to copy it, he does
just this to Yusuke, after seeing his Spirit Gun. Koenma leaves the
capturing of Rando up to Yusuke and sends him to Genkai's tournament,
thinking that Rando would be there if anywhere. After capturing Yusuke in an
unbreakable web, dipping him in a pond of demon fish, and firing a Spirit
Gun (Demon style) at Yusuke, Rando is finally defeated by being cocky and
trying to use the Shrinking Technique he used on Kuwabara to torture Yusuke
to death. Yusuke didn't really deserve this win because when Rando started
to do the Shrinking Technique Yusuke had moss in his ear. So when Rando
completed the chant and Yusuke couldn't hear a word he had said, the
technique backfired on Rando and caused him to shrink... Yusuke killed him.
Personality: Ruthless and determined to destroy Yusuke, he seems
pretty bright, but does have a couple of thought lapses which cause him to
lose. Allowing Yusuke to see Keiko was one of those mistakes.... big
Techniques/Weapons: Storm of Torment, Prism of Seven, Healing, 7
Thunderbolts of Hell, Dark Thunder
Suzaku is the leader, and the strongest of the Four
Saint Beasts. Suzaku uses a mixture of Demon Energy and lightning in most of
his techniques. Suzaku was a good match for the early Yusuke, but would be
no contest at all later on in the series. He nearly defeated Yusuke, but
made the dire mistake of showing Yusuke what was happening to Keiko, which
caused Yusuke to go crazy and tap into his life energy so as to kill Suzaku
and nearly himself.
Name: Seiryu (The Blue Dragon)
Personality: Cocky and annoying, he kills one of his own companions
because he was unable to defeat Kuwabara
Techniques/Weapons: Shards of Ice, Ice Fist, Freeze Blast, Ice Dragon
Seiryu is the third Saint Beast and an ice dragon, he
gets to lose to Hiei... The match doesn't last long because Hiei gets really
pissed when Seiryu kills Byakko, who was unable to defeat Kuwabara. Seiryu
throws some shards of ice at Hiei, who avoids them. Seiryu then tries to
freeze Hiei, his leg is frozen but he charges at Seiryu and slices him 16
times... annihilating him and getting his arm frozen in the process.
Name: Byakko (The White Tiger)
Personality: Cocky and hungry... really hungry.
Techniques/Weapons: Spawn Creatures, Consume Spirit Energy, Tiger
Byakko is the White Tiger and the second Saint Beast.
Byakko seems to be much stronger than his opponent, Kuwabara. In fact he
nearly defeats Kuwabara with only four hairs, but Kuwabara outsmarts them
and kills them. Then Byakko himself comes down to fight Kuwabara
hand-to-hand, Kuwabara stabs him with his Spirit Sword, but Byakko just
consumes the energy. Kuwabara then gets mad and puts a lot of power in his
Sword and stabs him again, this time Byakko only gets fatter and not bigger,
thus giving Kuwabara the idea to make him consume too much spirit energy.
This works a little, it makes Byakko weaker and causes him to retreat to a
room of lava with small columns sticking up out of it. Kuwabara outsmarts
Byakko and kicks him in the fire, thus defeating him.
Personality: Not really much of a personality...
Techniques/Weapons: Merge into the stone walls and floor, Tear
himself apart and attack, re-form himself
Genbu is a stone beast and the first of the Saint
Beasts. Kurama steps forward for this battle. Kurama gets hit a few times
with some trick attacks, but then brings out his Rose Whip and slices up
Genbu. That doesn't do it, he just rebuilds himself. This time Genbu tears
himself apart and hurls himself at Kurama, who avoids it but something
catches his eye. When Genbu does it again Kurama takes the hits, but catches
Genbu's heart-like-thing. When Kurama destroys the heart Genbu falls to
pieces and dies.
Personality: Forceful and demanding, fairly mean and rude, but still
she is bright and wishes the best for Kuwabara.
Techniques/Weapons: Kicks and Punches
Shizura is the older sister of Kuwabara and takes it
upon herself to raise him right. She treats his wounds, feeds him, and makes
sure he studies. Although when he disobeys her or just does something
absolutely stupid she beats him up. She's very good at sensing spirit and
demon signatures, much like her brother and she also is a pretty decent
Personality: Lackadaisical and drunk most of the time, yet she cares
for Yusuke and worries about him.
Atsuko is the young, single mother of Yusuke Urameshi.
She is unemployed and spends all day at the bar. She cares about Yusuke and,
in fact, makes sure he is admitted to school, even if it requires
threatening the administration. She is alcoholic and has many problems but I
believe her heart is in the right place.
George Saotome (Ogre)
Personality: Nice and understanding, a good servant to Koenma
George is the blue ogre that is constantly at Koenma's
beck and call. He puts up with all the abuse Koenma throws at him and is in
the constant state of panic/weeping. He is a commentator for most of the
battles throughout the show and even helps Koto out toward the end. He's
excellent at groveling. All in all he's just a nice guy that seems not to
mind being abused by people around him.
Personality: Brief and to the point, like this description
Sayaka was sent by Koenma to check in on Yusuke and his
egg. She is a spirit investigator who decides whether people deserve to be
resurrected or not. She physically appears as a child, but she is actually
very old and wise.
Personality: Loving and caring... other than that little is known
Shiori is Kurama's human mother. She begins the show
with a very weak heart, and is in the hospital. Later on she marries a man
who has another son with Kurama's same human name (That makes Kurama having
a brother named Kurama... it gets confusing).
Personality: Fits into his principal role well.
Takenaka is the principal of Saraiashiki Junior High
School. He's a kind man who worries about his students and truly wants them
to succeed. He makes it his mission to help the troubled students even when
they don't want to be helped. He keeps the other teachers in line whenever
he catches them doing things to harm the students. He's very fair and just,
even to the troublesome Yusuke.
Personality: Cares for Yusuke like no other
Puu is the result of Yusuke's spiritual test. He is the
spirit monster born from the egg that Yusuke used for the Trial of
Resurrection. Puu is quiet and sweet, he helps when he can. He can fly by
flapping his long ears. He also feels any pain that Yusuke feels, so if
Yusuke dies, Puu will die with him.
Personality: Enthusiastic and loud
Koto is the announcer for both the Dark Tournament and
the Makai Tournament. She is a cat demon and good at acrobatics. She's
extremely enthusiastic and nearly fearless... the crowd loves her.
Personality: Obnoxious and intelligible
Juri was the referee in the latter stages of the Dark
Tournament. She is a sea demon and judges very fairly, she knows the rules
real well. She can be a little timid on occasion but so would anyone who had
to be in the midst of the tournament ring.
