Genkai in her old age and her physical prime.


Genkai (幻海) was the master of Yusuke Urameshi, as well as a main character in Yu Yu Hakusho series. Yusuke and Kuwabara address Genkai as "Ba-san", which means "Grandmother, old woman".

Powers and Stats

Tier: 8-A | Likely 7-C

Name: Genkai

Classification: Human, Spirit Master

Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Ability to fire destructive blasts of Reiki, Skilled Martial Artist, Can pass on her own spiritual powers to a successor, Can return her body to the state where she was at her strongest (Essentially temporarily reverting Genkai to a time when she was in her early 20s), Healing and Regeneration (Mid-Low, she taught Yusuke the style that allows him to regenerate, can use ki waves for healing purposes)

Attack Potency: Multi-City Block level (Blasted off a chunk of base Younger Toguro's arm, who realized that 45% of his power wouldn't be enough to take on Genkai and went to 80% power) | Likely Town level (Yusuke with Genkai's Spirit Wave absorbed was able to do this even with his power being heavily suppressed with Spirit Cuffs. Likely not too far off in power from current 80% Younger Toguro)

Speed: High Hypersonic (Evaded an attack from Younger Toguro that was meant to rip out her heart, with the result being that it hit her shoulder) | High Hypersonic (via power-scaling from end of Dark Tournament Yusuke and Hiei)

Lifting Strength: Class K | Likely Class M

Durability: Multi-City Block level (Younger Toguro realized that 45% of his power wouldn't be enough to kill her and went to 80% power) | Likely Town level (Should be in the same league as 80% Younger Toguro and end of Dark Tournament Yusuke)

Stamina: Very high. Even in her old age and after surrendering her Spirit Wave to Yusuke, she could continue fighting after having a chunk of her flesh ripped out by Toguro. Physically much weaker characters can fight with injuries that would be fatal to a normal physically fit human.

Range: Standard melee range normally. Hundreds of meters with Reigun and its variants.

Standard Equipment: None notable

Intelligence: Very high. One of the most highly skilled and dangerous martial artists of her time, one of the greatest teachers and psychics of the era, is aware of the goings on of the Spirit World and criminal underworlds, highly capable leader as well as capable strategist & tactician.

Weaknesses: None notable

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Kiai Cannon: When the self-proclaimed Rei Experts of the Nine Regions (mountain villagers in the English anime) confront Genkai about their rejection during the trial of lots, she deduces that they're too thick-headed to listen to anything but force. She then releases an invisible blast of Spirit Energy from her body and directs it at the two goons. The power of the energy wave forces them across the courtyard and into the compound gate. In the manga, she claims that in her youth, she could have achieved the same effect just by looking at them.
  • Spirit Gun (霊丸, Reigan): In the Dark Tournament, Genkai demonstrated her ability to use a far-more powerful version of Yusuke's Spirit Gun by firing a massive blast strong enough to reduce a very large stone to pebbles, as well as the forest behind it, before it hurled up into the sky behind it.
  • Spirit Shotgun (ショットガン, Shottogan): Genkai uses this technique, which blasts out a spray of energy bullets that look vaguely like her clenched fist, to clear an entire barge of the demons looking to compete in the Dark Tournament
  • Spirit Healing: With her help, Kuwabara was able to survive after having several of his bones broken by Rando, and recovered at a much faster rate. Her abilities are so great that even doctors were stunned how rapidly he recovered
  • Paralyzing Touch: Genkai was able to freeze Yusuke's arm just by touching it
  • Reihado-ken (れいはどけん): An ancient technique that has been mastered by only a few people. Users of reihado-ken have the ability to manipulate their cells when they exert full power. In this regard, their bodies return to the point when they were the strongest, at their prime state of power. Or for that matter, speed them up to their prime state of power. For Genkai, the technique transformed her into her 20 year old self
  • Spirit Wave (修の拳, Shu no Ken, translated as Fist of Cleansing): A purification technique that Genkai uses to free the enslaved fighters of Team Ichigaki. After chanting, a giant tornado of Spirit Energy appears at her finger tips, and then she unleashes a large burst of energy, in which attacking foes are caught and paralyzed. Then she strikes her opponent in the chest. If the opponent is evil, they will be destroyed, but if they are pure of heart, their bodies will be purified as well. In the manga, she describes it as one of the Five Great Fists (daiken), the others being Offense, Defense, and Wisdom. Considering its deadly nature,this seems to be one of her most powerful techniques but also one of the most difficult to perform given the long chant and the sheer amount of Spirit Energy required.

Key: Old Genkai (Spirit Wave surrendered) | Young/Prime Genkai (With Spirit Wave)
