Matches:

Handicaps: Team owner will die if their team loses

Win: Team Urameshi

StaffEdit

CommitteeEdit

The tournament is headed by a committee, who, consisting of several wealthy humans, creates the event's rules and oversees each individual match to determine its legitimacy. Possessing limitless power in all event circumstances, the committee has the final word on every major tournament decision, including the outcome of all fights. In addition, it is the committee's job to award the tournament's winners with a granting of one wish, which is considered the grand prize of the event. Like all affiliates of the dark tournament, the committee is extremely corrupt, often abusing its authority to overturn fair decisions by the referees, including multiple instances at the expense of Team Urameshi. Despite their corruption and greed, even they were disgusted by Sakyo's plan to open the gate to the demon world, and swore to stop him, though were killed by Toguro.

Every year, special guests are invited to fight in the tournament. Althought it may seem to be an honor, it is quite the contrary. These guests have no choice in the decision of fighting, and if they are absent in the tournament, they are written on a kill list and will be murdered by an assassin.

RefereesEdit

The first referee, Koto, watched the matches and started the ten count should a fighter fall. During the finals and the semi-finals, she acted as an announcer.

The second, Juri, took over for Koto when she was "promoted" during the finals.

PrizeEdit

The prize for winning the tournament was one wish for each person on the winning team.

The Toguro Brothers wished to be converted into demons of the highest class (though they were technically B class), while Genkai wished to never be a part of such a tournament again. The wishes of the other two members are not revealed.

Team Urameshi collectively wished for the resurrection of Genkai, which Koenma granted.

DestructionEdit

Sakyo had bet his life on Team Toguro's victory, while Koenma bet his upon Team Urameshi. When Yusuke and his team won the finals, Sakyo was true to his word. He activated a self-destruct protocol on the arena, which collapsed and killed him in the process.

Video GamesEdit

The tournament was later adapted into a video game, called Yu Yu Hakusho Dark Tournament. This stage will appear in the Jump crossover fighting game J-Stars Victory Vs
