Kurama is a main protagonist from the anime series Yu Yu Hakusho. He appears in the game PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
Kurama was once the demon fox Yoko, or Yoko Kurama in his humanoid form, who was an infamous and powerful thief in Demon World. After he was critically injured, he fled to the human world and fused himself with the unborn son of a human woman until his strength fully return. Once the boy was born, he was named Shuichi Minamino by his human mother, who had no idea what Yoko had done. However, Kurama's plans changed when he saw that his human mother would do anything to protect his still weak human form, and he eventually grew to love her and resolved to change his ways. He is later approached by the Demon Hiei, who eventually became his best friend, who brought him in on a job to steal powerful artifacts from Spirit World. Through this act he came into contact with newly named Spirit Detective Yusuke Urameshi, which would eventually lead to the two becoming friends and Kurama and Hiei joining Yusuke's Team Urameshi. Kurama is by far the most intelligent, strategic, and deceptively ruthless member of Team Urameshi.
