Beneath Bui's Armor ("Intimindation! Bui Removes his Armor // Kyōi! Yoroi o Hazushi Ta Bui" (脅威! 鎧を外した武威) ) is the thirty-second episode of season 2 of YuYu Hakusho. It aired on November 20, 1993 in Japan and May 22, 2004 in the United States.
The battle between Kurama and Karasu has come to an end, and an unexpected verdict is made. Soon, Hiei gets in the ring, eager to take on his opponent. Bui, a mysterious fighter, with an immense power hidden beneath his armor...
The episode opens up with Karasu lying down on the ground, dead. It appears that Kurama has won the match, but the committee rules that Kurama was down for over ten seconds before killing Karasu. Meaning that Karasu had officially won the match. Yusuke helps Kurama out of the ring. Hiei says that he was planning to take Toguro himself, but since Toguro killed Genkai, he figured Yusuke would want vengeance, so Hiei elects to take on Bui. The fight begins! Bui jumps really high in the air and thrusts his axe down, missing Hiei. The axe gets stuck in one of the tiles. Bui starts throwing the huge blocks of the arena at Hiei. Hiei continues to dodge, and insults Bui. Eventually, Hiei starts using the Fist of the Mortal Flame to blow up the blocks. Bui attacks with his axe again, and it seems like Hiei has been cornered, but Hiei amazingly punches the axe's blade, sending it flying into the stands. Bui then forms another axe, and throws it at Hiei, only for the axe to be caught, and then turned to ashes by Hiei. Bui talks for the first time in the Dark Tournament, and takes off his armor, revealing his true power. Bui starts floating in the air. Hiei attacks, but is blown back by Bui's battle aura. Bui then fires a large blast, meant to follow Hiei around until it hits him. Hiei uses this to his advantage, and causes Bui to be hit by his own blast. Amazingly, Bui is unaffected, claiming that his blasts are meant to be just strong enough to take out his opponent. Hiei decides that it's time to use the Dragon of the Darkness Flame again. Hiei begins to power up as the episode ends.
- In overview, if Kurama hadn't been cheated out of his win, he, Hiei and Kuwabara would have won the round for Team Urameshi.
