They all fight individually, the first being Miyuki. Being beautiful and female made Kuwabara hesitant about fighting at all.

Yusuke used his hands to figure out that she was really transgendered. And somehow that makes it okay… That wasn’t the first time Japan media endorsed transphobic violence in the 1990’s. Hopefully, they’ve learned better.

Inmaki was the next foe and he was pretty tricky. He could turn invisible.

The final one was Gokumonki. A very large brute, he was taken down quite easily.
