The Spirit Gun is the signature technique of Yusuke Urameshi. It concentrates spirit energy into the user's hand, releasing it through one's finger tips in the form of a blast. This attack is first used by Yusuke under direction from Koenma after Yusuke becomes a Spirit Detective and is named for the shape Yusuke's hand takes when using the attack.

Usage Edit

The Spirit Gun requires the concentration of energy in the fingers, which is released via a mental focusing technique where one mentally "pulls the trigger". The Spirit Gun's attack power and the number of times it may be used are limited by one's amount of spirit energy. Originally, Yusuke could only use the attack once a day, but with further training that number was increased to four. Eventually, after much practice, Yususke was able to use the technique virtually without limit.

In the beginning Yusuke's Spirit Gun had the appearance of a small beam of light that could travel long distances with considerable speed. After his first training with Genkai the technique took the form of a ball of energy proportional to a basketball.

After Yusuke's second intensive training session with Genkai, his abilities increased even further as he gained greater control of his spirit energy. The size and intensity of the blast grew tremendously, enabling Urameshi to produce blasts of massive size with relatively little effort. The infusion of Genkai's Spirit Wave Orb also added to the power of the technique. The blast looks comparable to another popular energy blast, the Kamehameha from Dragon Ball Z.

Yusuke Urameshi is not the only individual to use the Spirit Gun; Rando was also able to use the attack during his fight with Yusuke at the end of Genkai's Tournament. Using his prodigious skill to copy the styles of other fighters, Rando used his demon energy to fire red colored blasts as opposed to the blue colored energy beams produced by human spirit energy. Genkai was also shown using the Spirit Gun in a massive blast during the Dark Tournament.

Effect and PowerEdit

In the beginning, Yusuke's Spirit Gun had enough power to leave a grown man unconscious with ease and even kill weaker humans. However, it was ineffective against more powerful opponents. This necessitated the use of the Spirit Detective Concentration Ring.

The power of the Spirit Gun's devastating power is derived from the spirit energy control of its user. After training with Genkai, Yusuke's strength increased tremendously, especially after receiving the Spirit Wave Orb. During the Dark Tournament, Yusuke's attack destroyed a large part of the stadium and forest, and was able to send Toguro flying back for an incredible distance (though the hit wasn't enough to destroy him).

Once resurrected in the Chapter Black arc, Yusuke fired a Spirit Gun that involuntarily reduced a gigantic mountain in Makai to nothing.

During his fight with Yomi, Yusuke produced a different kind of Gun not seen before, an attack combining Spirit Energy with Demon Energy (which generated an atomic-level explosion). Yusuke also used his own Demon Gun, which was comparable to the Demon Gun of Rando; however, Yusuke's version was obviously more powerful.

Demon GunEdit

When using demon energy to produce the Spirit Gun, it creates the Demon Gun, which differs from the original by a red color and a more destructive power.


Spirit Gun Barrage: a version of the Spirit Gun, which releases two shots only (the first to break the protection and defense, and the second to overthrow).
