Yu Yu Hakusho
Ruler of Mekai (Netherworld), Yakumo and KIng
Enma fought several millennia ago over the right to rule the human world. It is
not known how Enma overcame Yakumo and his armies, but they were defeated and
Mekai was destroyed. In order to resurrect his world, Yakumo and his three Demon
Gods come to Earth to open the elemental sites. Once done, all Yakumo needs is
his power sphere that King Enma stole from him to regain control over Mekai, and
all other worlds as well.
One of the humans who gained powers from the
Makai door, Yanasigawa's special power is to mimic those whom he touches. By
touching anyone, he can take on their appearance, voice, even memories. He is
one of the three who challenge Yusuke and the others to test their abilities and
teach them that no matter how strong they may be, they need to use their heads
sometimes above brute strength.

True form of Kuruma, Yoko is over 1000 years old and
possesses legendary power and strength. He was believed to have been killed when
attempting to steal from a powerful demon, but escaped into the human realm,
hiding within a human woman as her child.
One of the three rulers of Makai, Yomi is the most
technology driven and has even created a city like the ones on Earth. He is also
a former comrade of Yoko Kurama's, but was brash and impulsive. When raiding a castle
one day, he and his men were attacked by a demon assassin. The assassin
succeeded in killing all of Yomi's men, and took out Yomi's eyes, blinding him
forever. To overcome this weakness, Yomi grew four new ears to use as his eyes.
When achieving the S class, and becoming a ruler of Makai, Yomi captured the
demon who took his sight and tortured him mercilessly. In the Makai Tournament,
Yomi fights against Yusuke in the final battle of the series.
An Ice apparition, Yukina can freeze her
surroundings and her tears turn into rare pearls. Due to this unique ability,
Yukina is kidnapped by evil men who wish to sell her pearl tears on the black
market for billions of yen each. Due to the horrible nature of her imprisonment,
Koenma assigns Yusuke the task of rescuing her. Kuwabara falls in love with
Yukina on first sight and joins Yusuke in the name of love. Yukina also
possesses incredible healing powers and is the half-sister of Hiei.
Juvenile student at Sarayashiki Junoir High, Yusuke
Urameshi is quick tempered, rude, ill-mannered, and an all around thug. However,
despite his tough guy persona, Yusuke is a good person who cares about those
around him, even if he never acts that way. He is tragically killed when saving
a little boy from getting hit by a car, only to find out that his death was
unplanned and meaningless (as the boy was to survive without a scratch, saved by
the ball he was holding). To fix the mistake, Yusuke is given a chance to return
to life by undergoing a trial that will restore his life or destroy it
permanently. Of course, being the main character, Yusuke does succeed in the
trial and comes back to life, only to be given the job of spirit detective of
the human realm. Armed with a few spirit items and his Spirit Gun, Yusuke must
maintain peace in the human realm and arrest the demons who threaten it.

student in his school next to Kurama.
