Byakko (白虎, Byakko), the "White Tiger", was the second Saint Beast that Yusuke's team encountered in Demon City, otherwise known as the City of Ghosts and Apparitions. He has been shown to be the most durable of the Beasts, enduring the most devastating attacks. He was defeated twice by Kuwabara, first, by an explosion of Youki, second when he is thrown into a pool of magma; however, he survived both brushes with great endurance. He is finally killed after being frozen by his fellow Saint Beast, Seiryu, and shattered to pieces.
