Sex & Nudity

  • A few sexual jokes that include:
  • In episode 1, Yusuke lifts Keiko's skirt and comments on her panties color.
  • In episode 2, Kuwabara is possessed by Yusuke and tries to get Keiko to figure out it is really Yusuke so he squeezes Keiko's breasts and says "They're so squishy!".
  • In episode 42, Yusuke pokes Keiko's ass and says "Is it just these pants or did you get a really nice ass?"
  • In episode 103, A woman's breasts can be seen briefly. This is not very detailed though.

Violence & Gore

  • The show starts off pretty tame at first but gets more mature as it goes on, with the Chapter Black Saga being the darkest of them all. There's a fair bit violence with blood, as well as a disturbing flashback focusing on mankind's horrible deeds like torture and murder
  • Some of the violence is bloody, with episode 63 being the bloodiest of the entire series.
  • Lots of martial arts/action.


  • This is all in the FUNimation English dub:
  • Yusuke has quite a mouth on him and swears frequently. The words "Damn", "Ass", "Hell", "Bitch", "Bastard", "Prick" and "Shit" are used, though the word "Shit" is said in only two episodes.
  • The middle finger is used 4 times:
  • In episode 16, it is used by Yusuke.
  • In episode 32, it is used by Yusuke.
  • In episode 44, a fan in the Dark Tournament uses it.
  • In the Animax Asia English dub, there is no profanity.
  • In the Japanese version, "Goddamn" is used.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Atsuko (Yusuke's mother) is shown drinking and smoking in a few episodes. Shizuru and Sakyo are also smokers.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Early Yu Yu Hakusho is pretty tame, but the later episodes can get pretty dark and violent and are more akin to a TV-14 anime.
  • Some of the battle scenes are intense and at times, even brutal, but nothing is extremely bloody.
