Kurama vs Karasu
Amongst the Yu Yu Hakusho episodes, Kurama vs Karasu was the first match of the Dark Tournament. Karasu outclassed Kurama in terms of skill at the beginning but Kurama soon after transformed into his demon form, Yoko, which gave him an advantage. Kurama was victorious even after reverting back from his demon form.
Hiei vs Bui
Hiei showed the audience his new learned dark dragon technique. Yu YuHakusho’s Bui seemed to have the upper hand at the beginning of the fight with his brute strength. Hiei dodged all of his blows and then used his special dark dragon technique to give him the one-sided victory.
Yusuke vs Younger Toguro
Cleary the most intense fight in the series. Yusuke managed to get Younger Toguro to use 100% of his power. Younger Toguro was defeated by Yusuke’s spirit mega gun.
Yusuke vs Sensui
Sensui had multiple stances, which he used for offense and defense. It was difficult for Yusuke to adapt to. Out of desperation, Yusuke accessed his demonic powers which gave him a significant advantage over Sensui. Finally using Yusuke’s spirit gun, Sensui was defeated.
Yusuke vs Yomi
From Yu Yu Hakusho episode list, this battle took place in the Three Kings Saga. Yomi was incredibly skilled even though he was blind. Yusuke summoned every ounce of spirit energy he had to beat Yomi. When their fists clashed, Yomi’s punch was far too strong for Yusuke to stand. Yomi was the clear victor.
Kuwabara vs Risho
Yu Yu Hakusho Kuwabara was being overpowered by Risho at the beginning. Kuwabara managed to gain an enormous amount of strength once he saw his crush, Yukina, on stage. To impress her he managed to summon his Spirit Sword and landed a perfect blow on Risho, which sent him flying out of the ring.
Hiei vs Yusuke (1st encounter)
From Yu Yu Hakusho episode list, this took place near the beginning of the series. Hiei had used powers of an ancient artifact to gain extra strength. He had to improvise so he faked a spirit gun, which was aimed at Hiei. He instinctually dodged the blow but the artifact was destroyed.
Kurama vs Touya
Touya is an ice-based apparition who is able to freeze his surroundings with his demonic energy. This was one of the Yu Yu Hakusho episodes where Kurama had to outsmart his opponent using creative means. By faking his own death and deceiving Touya, he was able to deliver the final winning blow.
Genkai vs Younger Toguro
Genkai of Yu Yu Hakusho was Younger Toguro’s former teammate back when they took part in their own Dark Tournament. Younger Toguro manages to regenerate from each of Genkai’s blows. She was unable to harm him, therefore, Younger Toguro comes out as the victor by killing Genkai at the very end.
Yusuke vs Jin
An intense match where Yusuke and Jin Yu YuHakusho went all out during their fight. Both fighters were on par in terms of skill and grit. Jin was not fazed by Yusuke’s Spirit Gun technique, therefore, he had to improvise and use a special Spirit Wave technique. Yusuke came out victorious soon after.
