Elder Toguro: So let me get this straight... you're paying us... out of your own pocket... to make a little girl cry?
Tarakune: Correct.
Elder Toguro: (beat) I F**KING LOVE BEING A DEMON.

An Abridged Series based on Yu Yu Hakusho, by Lanipator[1]. His YouTube account can be found here This set itself apart from other abridged series by focusing more on playing around with the characters rather than mocking the tropes of the shows. It has plenty of the latter kind of humor, though.

Lanipator also snubbed Little Kuriboh in the famous incident that triggered The War of the Abridged Series Creators.


Tropes used in Yu Yu Hakusho Abridged include:

George the Ogre: Lord Koenma, we have a big problem.
Koenma: I'll say we do, dude. The power went out and now the only TV that's working is this one, and I can't change the friggin channel, man. I can't get anything. No topless car washing, topless volleyball, PBS, nothing!

  • Awesome but Impractical: Kuwabara's "Spirt Sword Monster Beast Donut" move. It is, of course, lampshaded by Yusuke:

Yusuke: How often could you possibly have a use for that technique?
Kuwabara: More than you, you son of a bitch!

  • Bat Deduction: Kurama gets interrupted while he's in the middle of an especially insane one while trying to figure out the proper door to enter in Maze Castle. Kuwabara just picks the one with the strongest energy behind it, which is apparently the same door Kurama was building up to.
  • Beat: Used by Kuwabara against himself

(After seeing Kurama use his rose whip for the first time)
Kuwabara: Now that's what I call flower power.

  • Beat*

Kuwabara: Shut up Urameshi.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Kurama obviously, but he does have less patience for stupidity than in the normal series.

Kurama: Kuwabara?
Kuwabara: Yeah?
Kurama: If you say or do anything to annoy me in the next 24 hours, I swear to Koenma I will cut you in half with a fucking rose! Or do I need to remind you I have that capability?

  • Book Dumb: Kuwabara is even dumber than in the series, to the point that he doesn't even know what a book is.

Kuwabara: What the hell are these things?

Suzaku: You and I seem to be of an even intemellect, detective.
Yusuke: You take that back right the fuck now.

"My alone time hand is falling asleep."

    • Yusuke and Kurama, too.

Kurama: I'd say I'm disappointed, but in order for that to be true I'd have to be surprised.

Sakyo: $20 billion on the intruders.
Tarukune: Sakyo, quit bustin' my balls. Stop makin' up numbers.
Giles: A billion is a real number, sir.
Tarukune: I've just been informed that a billion is a real number.

Yusuke: That was for Kuwabara. Nobody breaks his bones but me.

Kuwabara: Please, Urameshi, you're my only reason to live! [...] I'm not gay!

Elder Toguro: So let me get this straight. You're paying us, out of your own pocket, to make a little girl cry.
Tarukune: Correct.
Elder Toguro: *Beat* I F**KING LOVE BEING A DEMON!

Koenma: Something about terror and discord and the Makai whistle... just put Yusuke on the case. (cut to Yusuke)
Yusuke: What the hell is a Makai whistle?

Yusuke: Alright, plan B. Look! A distraction!
Rando: What? Where? Man, what the hell you talking about? There ain't nothing there.
Yusuke: Really, I could've sworn it was right there, wait a minute I was supposed to do something. Run that was it. Aw f$%k. I don't suppose you'll fall for that again, would you?

  • Gonk: Yusuke describes Tarukane as a walking ballsack.

Kuwabara: Dear god, that is the fastest I've ever lost a boner!

Yusuke: I'm not stupid like Kuwabara. I'm a whole different kind of stupid.
Beat
Yusuke: Wait a minute...

Hiei: I'm trying to insult you, you stupid fu-

Suzaku: As we speak, the horde of all the-
Yusuke: Shh! I'm trying to watch the movie.
Suzaku: But I-
Yusuke: Shh!

  • Lampshade Hanging: Many, surprisingly often by Yusuke.
    • "Well that was oddly relevant."
    • "His pants sure know just where to stop ripping."
    • Kurama seems to have a lot of knowledge of "Anime Law".
  • Larynx Dissonance: Necessary, since Lanipator does virtually all the voices.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Kurama had a case of this in The Movie in relation to what happened with his old partner Kuronue for no adequately explained reason. He was better by the end.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: In regards to the series' Schedule Slip.

Yusuke: Hey, Kurama, how's that wound treating you?
Hiei: It's been almost a fucking year; I'm sure he's fine!

  • And later...*

Yusuke: So how long do you think Kuwabara can hold like that?
Kurama: Well, knowing Lanipator, let's hope he can hold on for a year or so.

Kurama: Hold on, where the hell is that music coming from?
Kuronue: Oh, that? It's just my...iFog.

Genkai: Anyway, you realize there's only one way for you to win?
Kurama: Of course; a quick preparation montage.

  • Locked Out of the Loop: Yusuke often is the only one who isn't told important information, especially when the information is relevant to his own survival.
  • LOLcats: Kuwabara thinks Byakko is one.
  • Look Behind You!: Parodied
  • Man of a Thousand Voices: Again, Lani does virtually all the voices. Most of which are actually quite good. His Kuwabara and Yusuke are notably spot-on.
  • Megaton Punch: Kuwabara in The Movie, and again in Episode 17, the latter expanded upon with some awesome music and a warning beforehand marking it as the most badass thing one will ever see.
  • Metaphorgotten: "Rubber is like...anti-lightning."
  • Mistaken for Gay: Kuwabara. It also happens to be his Berserk Button.
  • My Name Is Not Durwood: Hinageshi and Kuwabara in the movie. (Actually, Hinageshi and everyone in The Movie.)
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: The Blue Collar Comedy Beasts.
    • To elaborate, Genbu is essentially Larry the Cable Guy, Byakko seems to be Billy Bob Thornton's character from Sling Blade, Seriyuu is a flat out Expy for Hank Hill, and Suzaku sounds like Jim Varney's Ernest character, right down to calling everyone "Vern."
    • Fred Tennedy of the Black Black club is Ted Kennedy.

"Err um uh, hiya."

Yusuke: I swear to ass I'm gonna kick your God.

Yusuke: This is a train wreck I need to see for myself!

Yusuke: (called by Botan) What is it?
Botan: Yusuke, we have a problem. The Makai-
Yusuke: HA HA! You're stuck with Keiko! (hangs up)

Yusuke: Just tell me something: are your fighting skills as good as your rapping skills?
Rando: Hell yeah!
Yusuke: Oh, thank God.

George: Uh, sir...what are you on?
Koenma: I don't even know anymore, dude.

Hiei: Well I didn't float here downriver if that's what you're asking.
Kurama: Nobody insinuated that, Hiei.
Hiei: Good, because that's not what happened!

    • Episode 'Rescue Yukina' as well (Hiei again)

Yusuke: What are you doing this for, anyway? Isn't this supposed to be Botan's thing?
Hiei: I'm not hurting for work, I don't know what you're talking about.
Yusuke: ...good to hear, I guess...

"You've been dead for 20 seconds."

Tarukune: This'll be easy. I'm the only one who knows the Torguro's power. There's no way he'll-
Sakyo: 66 trillion, 200 million, on the intruders.
Tarukune: ...you're just f***ing with me now, aren't you?


PEEP!
