Death Battle Fanon Wiki

Hiei VS Vergil is a What-if Death Battle adopted by Friendlysociopath.


Demonic Samurai collide- Hiei from Yu Yu Hakusho VS Vergil from Devil May Cry!


Boomstick: Oh boy- Samurai AND Demons- two of my favorite things wrapped up in one match- twice!

Whiz: Hiei from Yu Yu Hakusho.

Boomstick: And Vergil from Devil May Cry.

Whiz: These two will do almost anything for the sake of gaining more power.

Boomstick: And damn are they badass when doing it!

Whiz: It's a battle of blades and demonic abilities.

Boomstick: He's Whiz and I'm Boomstick.

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills, to find out who would win a Death Battle.


Whiz: Hey Boomstick, how would you like to be born to a tribe of all females?

Boomstick: That sounds awesome- what's the catch?

Whiz: Well, you'd also be cursed by the entire village and thrown down a mountain as a baby.

Boomstick: Wellllllll shit; that's not the harem dream isn't it?

Whiz: Thus was Hiei brought into this world, he was later found by bandits and began his demonic killing spree at the tender age of 5.

Boomstick: Wow, murdering at 5- they grow up so fast!

Whiz: Hiei eventually lost his only keepsake from his mother, a hiruseki stone, and set out to find it. During this search, he receives a Jagan Eye Implant though at some cost- he can never tell his twin sister that he is her brother, no matter how long or hard she searches him out.

Boomstick: That's- that's-

Whiz: Demonic?

Boomstick: Boy, demons don't fool around do they?

Whiz: Hiei eventually made his way to the Human Realm after stealing several precious artifacts from the Spirit World. This is what led to his eventually battle, rivalry, and even friendship with Yusuke Urameshi.

Boomstick: Leave it to Japanese Demons to befriend people trying to kill them.

Whiz: Hiei would continue to grow in power alongside his companies, eventually reaching S-Class; a level of power that indicates the Demon in question was capable of destroying the world.

Boomstick: He never quite gets around to it... wait a second, dark spiky hair, a bad attitude, always being upstaged by other characters... I've heard this somewhere before...

(picture of Vegeta appears on-screen)

Whiz: Hiei is a formidable opponent, ranking as one of the strongest Demons his series has to offer. His movements are incredibly fast- he is able to go from a dead-stop to running forwards to cut off an opponent's limb and return to his starting position before anyone could even see him move very early on in his career.

Boomstick: That Jagan Eye is pretty nasty too; I wish I had one- no shower would be safe!

Whiz: The Jagan Eye greatly boosts Hiei's senses and abilities- he can detect a marble from miles away with pinpoint accuracy, making hiding from him nigh impossible. Coupled with his natural speed, power, and sword skills - this makes Hiei a terror on the battlefield.

Boomstick: But by far the coolest thing he has going for him is the Dragon of Darkness Flame; god I wish I could have a pet dragon! Chicks love dragons!

Whiz: You probably wouldn't want to get yours the same way Hiei does, his initial summoning of the Dragon burned his arm so badly he couldn't even hold his sword for the pain. He eventually overcame this limit and could summon the power almost at will. It is an incredibly dangerous and destructive technique, Hiei blew up a considerable portion of the arena when he used it by sheer accident.

Boomstick: And he's a cold-hearted badass to boot- no mercy.

Whiz: While he does begin to veer into morally "good" territory Hiei is a Demon first and foremost in his mind. Rarely does he demonstrate mercy and he's more than willing to cut an opponent down quickly without much thought than engage in a long conversation with them- though he does hold back slightly against humans due to his probation for being a thief and killer. Still, Hiei is a formidable foe and one of the strongest demons Yu Yu Hakusho has to offer.

Hiei: Dragon of the Darkness Flame


Boomstick: So Vergil's story isn't the same as Hiei's is it?

Whiz: Oh no, perish the thought.

Boomstick: Good.

Whiz: Vergil's is arguably worse.

Boomstick: Goddamn it!

"Why do you refuse to gain power?"

Whiz: Vergil is the twin brother of Dante, a well-known Devil Hunter who kills Demons for money.

Boomstick: But while Dante tries to kill Demons to protect others and earn a paycheck, Vergil is all about one thing and one thing only.

Whiz: Power. Dante and Vergil's mother was slain by Demons early in the boys' life- while Dante eventually recovered from this- Vergil took a different path and decided his goal would be to gain the power of Sparda himself. This results in Vergil summoning the Temen-ni-gru in an effort to bring Dante to him and open a gate to the Demon World to reclaim the power of Sparda. While this surely killed thousands of humans, Vergil did not seem particularly concerned about it.

Boomstick: Vergil has issues.

Whiz: However, Vergil and Dante fight several times- eventually ending in a duel in the very Demon World their father perished in. Vergil stayed behind while Dante escaped, leaving Vergil to face a powerful Demon named Mundus.

Boomstick: Annnnnd since Mundus shows up later in the series and Vergil doesn't...

Whiz: We're never told what exactly happened to Vergil, but it would appear he lost to Mundus and was then forced to serve him in his new form- Neo Angelo. Dante eventually kills Vergil in this form, releasing him from his servitude.

Boomstick: No father, dead mother, failure in his life's goal, tortured into fighting his brother, killed by his brother- I see what you mean by "worse".

Whiz: Vergil may have had a rough time of it, but there's no denying his combat prowess. As a Son of Sparda, Vergil has increased stamina, strength, and durability compared to a normal human. While Dante focuses more or strength and unpredictability- Vergil instead opts for speed and precision; making a series of extremely fast slashes that strike exactly where he intends. Often he will cut an opponent multiple times before you even see him move. He also gets a potent healing factor by this same blood-

Boomstick: Does Dante really get stabbed by his own sword in every game?

Whiz: Not every game, no, but close to it. Assuming their regen works the same, any but the most debilitating of injuries can be shaken off by Vergil and Dante with relative ease; though the loss of blood and energy does add up between injuries.

Pre Death Battle[]

Boomstick: Huh, he's really similar to Hiei isn't he?

Whiz: Vergil and Hiei are very similar in style and personality, this is sure to be an interesting battle.

Boomstick: Demon Samurai vs Demon Samurai- God I can't wait!

Whiz: The contestants are set- who will win?

Boomstick: It's time for a DEATH BATTLE!

Death Battle[]

Vergil walks through a deserted temple, massive columns of stone hold up the roof; it is a damp and dreary place, water trickles down one of the nearby pillars of rock.

Vergil: "The power of Sparda... I need more power first..."

A drop of water falls into a nearby pool.


Vergil continues looking around, walking past a torch that helps illuminate a relatively flat area of rock.

Vergil: "With enough power, I can protect others... Nero..."


Vergil stops walking.

Vergil: "If you're going to attack me, get on with it, I have no time for games."

Hiei drops down from the darkness, landing lightly in front of Vergil.

Hiei: "You're somewhere you shouldn't be, don't worry human- I'll just fix your memories and then send you home."


Vergil: "You're in my way, stand aside."

Vergil gestures with his free hand while the other reaches towards his sheathed Yamato.


Hiei doesn't move from his relaxed position.

Hiei: "You certainly don't show any fear, but fine, if you won't leave voluntarily- then I'll just have to force you."


Vergil uses his thumb to partially draw Yamato.

Vergil: "You got that right."


Cue Devil May Cry 3 Battle Theme Music

Both combatants have drawn their blades but otherwise don't appear to move.

The water drop falls towards the ground, falling in between the two of them, time slows enough for you to admire the drop in all of its detail as it continues its journey to the floor.

The drop shatters as it draws near torso level.

Hiei and Vergil explode into motion, swinging at one another in a flurry of blows almost too fast for the eye to follow.

Vergil manages to break free and slices past Hiei's body, apparently cutting him down as Hiei gasps in surprise.

Vergil sheathes the Yamato and glances back, surprise registers on his face as he sees only Hiei's empty coat.


Vergil's body jerks forwards as Hiei's blade erupts from his chest in a spurt of blood and steel.

Vergil spins quickly, slashing at Hiei despite the blade being embedded in his torso.

Hiei withdraws the sword and takes several short hops backward.


Hiei observes Vergil's wound closing up.

Hiei: "Well, you're no human- that's for sure."

Vergil: "And you appear to actually be worth some effort."


Vergil: "Let's raise the stakes a bit then."

Glowing blue blades appear behind Vergil's head.

Hiei: "Cute."


The Summoned Swords begin firing at Hiei, who slashes them out of his way.

More swords appear all around him, continuing the barrage.

Hiei calmly continues to hack them into pieces.

Hiei: "Is that the best you can- "

Vergil dashes towards Hiei again, this time in a low, arcing slash to cut at Hiei's legs.

Hiei leaps above the attack, parrying more Summoned Swords before landing further behind Vergil.


Vergil comes to a stop and repeats the maneuver, this time slashing upwards.

Hiei blocks another cluster of Summoned Swords before leaning back out of Vergil's strike.

Hiei brings his own sword around in a swift motion, knocking Vergil's blade out of his hands and straight up into the ceiling; the water begins to bead up around the Yamato.

Hiei's laugh is cut short as Vergil punches him in the chest with the Beowulf Gauntlets.

Hiei is launched backward, slamming into a rock pillar.

Before Hiei can properly land- Vergil has reached him- punching him back into the pillar.

Vergil slugs Hiei several times more, causing Hiei to cough up a spurt of blood.


Vergil: "Maybe you're weaker than I thought."

Vergil lets Hiei start to fall before kicking him back into the stone column.

Vergil pauses as Hiei's headband suddenly has a hole burned through, revealing his Jagan Eye.

Hiei: "Do you think it's possible that you could shut up?"

Vergil quickly tries to punch Hiei again, only for Hiei to use his free hand- now covered in flames- to strike Vergil's punch dead-on.


An explosion of fire and light fills the temple, scorching the rocks.

Hiei cuts at Vergil, who blocks with a Summoned Sword before leaping away, Hiei in pursuit.

The Yamato can be seen still stuck in the ceiling as Vergil's boots appear (upside down) around it.

Vergil grabs the blade and looks up (down) to see Hiei almost on him.

Vergil rips the Yamato out of the rock, causing a massive surge of water to fall into the temple.


Hiei and Vergil both take a moment to recover, standing and panting in a pool of water not quite a foot deep.

Both surge into motion, striking one another and locking blades; the movement causing dozens of water droplets to rise into the air.

The two part and begin slashing at one another- around them phantom images of the blades appear due to the great speed- the drops of water still hanging in the air are being cut apart in the time of the clash.

Vergil starts to weaken, cuts appearing on his body and blood staining the water.

Vergil: "Enough!"

With a surge of power, Vergil releases his Devil Trigger, causing a shockwave to launch the water in all directions.

Hiei leaps backward as Vergi flies forward, slashing at Hiei; who parries the blow.

Vergil swoops around and strikes at Hiei again before he can land, Hiei again deflecting the strike but being forced further skywards.

Vergil pauses and readies Yamato for a greater cut, unleashing a beam of energy that races at Hiei.

Hiei attempts the block the blow but it cuts clean through his sword- breaking it and leaving a dire gash across his chest.

Cue Yu Yu Hakusho Music- Battle Time

Hiei lands in the bloody water as Vergil walks towards him in Devil Trigger mode.

Hiei: "Actually, since you aren't a human..."

Hiei's eye begins to glow a sinister color and flames begin emerging from him.

Hiei: "Perhaps you're worthy of this."

Vergil races towards Hiei at top speed, sending a shockwave of water behind him from the speed of his movement.

Hiei extends a hand outwards, "Dragon of the Darkness Flame!"

Vergil: "Die!"

A torrent of black flames fills and overwhelms the cavern.

Above the ground, an explosion of dark fire blasts rocks skywards, sending rubble crashing throughout the area.

In the midst of the rubble, the Yamato can be seen spinning, it lands in the dirt before a pair of boots walks into view.

Hiei draws the sword and looks at it.

In the blade's reflection, a drip of water can be seen traveling past his eye, Hiei idly flicks it away.

Hiei: "Foolish, Demons don't cry."



Boomstick: Know what- I'm just happy the demonic samurai won.

Whiz: Hiei and Vergil are extremely similar in attitude and in fighting style, both are nearly identical in how they fight.

Boomstick: But Hiei was just better.

Whiz: For every speed feat Vergil had, it seemed like Hiei had a similar one that was simply greater.

Vergil can slice an enemy apart while barely appearing to move. Hiei can run around them and cut off an arm before returning to his origin point.

Vergil moves so fast he can't be followed by the human eye. Hiei moves so fast he can't be seen by demon eyes.

Vergil can cut through stone. Hiei can punch through stone.

Boomstick: It's like a match made in heaven- er- hell; Vergil was just one-upped in virtually every possible way.

Whiz: The winner is Hiei!

Next Time[]

Hiei sheathes the Yamato behind his back before a loud boom is heard and the trees around him all bend backward from the shockwaves.

Hiei turns to see off in the distance several disturbances: a giant tornado, a large blue explosion, several shining lights, and a massive fireball.

A distant voice can be heard over the wind.


Hiei: "What in the hell?"

Hiei dons his coat before leaping off towards the distant events.

The first son of Sparda battles the user of the Jaganshi Eye! Who wins in this battle of dark sword users?

(Vergil vs Hiei is the second episode of Akum Battle, featuring Vergil from the Devil May Cry series and Hiei from YuYu Hakusho in a battle Between quick cutting anti-hero's. Vergil would be voiced by Marc Soskin and Hiei would be voiced by Howard Wang)


Wiz: Vergil, Devil May Cry's first son of Sparda and the older brother of Dante.

Boomstick: And Hiei, the short edgy rival of Yusuke Urameshi and wielder of the Jagan Eye.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Boomstick: He's Wiz and I'm Boomstick.

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills to find out who would win... a Death Battle.

HIEI Is a Real Demon in Death Battle[]

Wiz: Demons, beings of evil and pawns to Devils. Boomstick: Hey Wiz, can we even classify this guy as a demon? I mean, he's like four feet tall.

Wiz: Don't let his size fool you Boomstick, as Hiei is one of the strongest demons in the world of YuYu-Hakusho.

Wiz: Born to a fire Demon and a Korime ("Ice Woman"), Hiei was known as a Imiko ("Cursed Child") and was sentence to death the moment of his birth.

Boomstick: Basically the other Ice Ladies were pissed off that one of their members had banged a literally hot dude, So you they had his mother do, THROW HIM OFF THE FUCKING ISLAND!!!.

Wiz: And somehow Hiei survived, raised by a group of bandits Hiei wanted nothing but revenge, So he started training everyday and by the age of 5, Hiei could kill A-class Demons with ease.

Boomstick: HOLY SHIT! an A-class demon power is said to be the equivalent to a nuclear bomb and Hiei takes them down like no ones business.

Popup: An A-class demon is considered to be the equivalent to a 9 tailed beast. As both are capable of destroying country's. Wiz: Hiei is a master swordsmen and has amazing athletic ability, However his powers would grow further after he joined forces with his rival, the Spirit Detective Yusuke.


  • Height: 160 cm | 5’3”
  • Weight: N/A
  • Age: Between 16 & 99
  • Demon Class: Upper S
  • Fire & ice demon hybrid
  • Name means “Flying Shadow”
  • Also known as Vincent & Philip
  • Probably likes the color black

Boomstick: But after realizing that epic sword skills and amazing strength were not going to be enough to kill his Mother and her race, So he went to the Doctor of darkness or the demon surgeon: Shigure.

Boomstick: Hiei told Shigure everything about his life and after the operation was done, Hiei now had the Jagan eye, and that's very disturbing.

Wiz: The Jagan eye enhances all of Hiei's sense's and ability's, He can spy on people and objects from 10 kilometers away, Read minds and block mental attacks and see through illusions and he can use telekinesis to lift objects and energy, but at a cost of reducing his strength to a D-class demon.

Boomstick: So after getting his third eye, which still creeps me out, Hiei went back to Korime village to get his revenge, but once he got their he saw how boring their lives were, so...…he spared them.

Wiz: Hiei would then later find out that he had a twin sister, So he made it his mission to protect her at all cost.

Boomstick: And with the Jagan eye and his awesome sword skills, he would make one epic bodyguard.

Wiz: Hiei is a powerful warrior, and is a master martial artist, With Bushido-style katana training, and with the ability to control fire, his most basic and iconic attack, The Fist of the Mortal Flame, in which he wreathes his fist or foot in fire and strikes his foe with it. He can also shoot a torrent of flames and create a astral projection.

Boomstick: But wanna know what's better then normal fire, why using DRAGON SHAPED FIRE.

Wiz: This is Dragon of the Darkness Flame With this, Hiei uses his demon energy to lure the flames of Demon World and create a overwhelming entity of fire and pain that can obliterate foes in an instant.

Boomstick: HOLY SHIT, those demons are just gone.

Wiz: However the Dragon can go against it's user, and those who have not mastered it will burn their arm with extensive use, But Hiei taught himself to force the dragon into the hilt of his sword, This prevents him from burning his arm but he mainly uses it as a last resort

Popup: Hiei said stating that he dislikes the attack because he finds it cowardly to limit such great power to a sword, as well as it being devoid of any taste or artistry. Boomstick: Hiei can also absorb the Dragon, further enhancing his physical capability's, With this power, he can shoot bursts of dark flame from his hands, as well as surround himself with the flames of the dragon to leap high into the air.

Boomstick: And like all anime protagonists, Hiei can transform into a far more powerful form, If you thought having three eyes is disturbing then how about having eyes all over your body.

Wiz: This is the Jaganshi form, By unleashing the full power of the Jagan eye, Hiei's ability's become far stronger. This form also allows him to create and control multiple dragons.

Boomstick: OH YEAH it's feat time.


  • Has defeated many demons in his childhood, slaughtering them for fun.
  • Reunited himself with his sister, Yukina.
  • Destroyed the Dark World Tournament Arena using the Dragon Absorption technique.
  • Killed one of the Netherworld Gods, Raigo, with his most powerful attack, Black Dragon Wave.
  • Used his Dragon of the Darkness Flame to break the shackles on Mukuro's arms, symbolically releasing her from her past.
  • First to master the Dragon of the Darkness Flame.
  • Dodged Yusuke’s Spirit Gun at point-blank range.
  • Stole the Artifacts of Darkness.
  • Became Mukuro’s right-hand man.
  • Fought 500 A-Class demons for 6 months.
  • Defeated Seriyū, Zeru, Makintaro, Kuro Momotaro, Bui

Boomstick: Hiei is no doubt the fastest character in the Yu Yu Hakusho universe. He was fast enough to slice Seiryu 16 times before he could throw a punch. That's impressive, but it's more impressive since Seiryu can throw hundreds of punches IN A SPLIT SECOND.

Wiz: In terms of Strength, Hiei is equal to Yuskue, who is said to be able to destroy the demon world, which is about 1.3 times larger than earth, and it is said to be a lot tougher than earth.

Boomstick: His durability is equal to his strength, so, moving on.

Wiz: His Darkness Sword could even cut and burn through Kuro Momotaro, who evolved himself to be immune to cutting and burning attacks. So figure that one out.


Wiz: Yes he does Boomstick, and now it's time to see his Flaws


  • His Demon Energy has limits, and can be exhausted in battle
  • Dragon of the Darkness Flame and Dragon Absorption may be powerful, but require him to go into a "hibernation" after repeated use, meaning if he uses it and it doesn't manage to defeat his opponent, he is left almost completely defenseless when going into hibernation.
  • His "shoot first, ask questions later" battle mentality could get him in trouble against an opponent who seeks tactical advantages in battle. He does use strategy in battle against those he admits are on his level, if not superior to him, however if he's caught underestimating the wrong foe, it will cost him, much like it did in his first battle with Yusuke.
  • He also tends to toy with his opponent a lot.

His binding technique gets cancelled if he closes his eyes. Wiz: one of Hiei's weakness is that his demon energy has a limit and if he goes over that limit he will start to exhaust himself.

Boomstick: And like all anime protagonists, Hiei is a Think first, Ask Questions Later type of guy, usually rushing straight into battle.

Wiz: Hiei biggest weakness however is the Jagan eye, if it's hit his powers will become crippled for a limited amount of time.

Boomstick: Despite all of this, Hiei is a cold-hearted badass to boot- no mercy.

Kurama:"How many times did you cut him?"

Hiei:"Only sixteen".

Yusuke:"And here I could only keep track of seven or eight".

VERGIL Is Reclaimer of His Name in Death Battle[]

Wiz: In the beginning there was only darkness and from that darkness came the Demonworld.

Boomstick: AKA Hell.

Wiz: The Demonworld is home to demonic and nightmarish creatures called Demons.

Boomstick: Of coarse a place called Demonworld is populated by demons, What did you think it was full fairy's, sunshine and rainbows. Anyway the Demonworld is where demons are most powerful and unleash their full potential



  • Survived being cut in half.
  • Killed 8 demons in one second.
  • Destroyed 108,000 raindrops in less than one second.
  • Escaped Arkham's demonic illusion.
  • Scales to Dante, who caught the Savior's punch.
  • Defeated Dante in their first outing without Devil Trigger.
  • Defeated Sparda-powered Arkham with Dante.
  • Possibly the best swordsman in the series.
  • Rapid Slash and Judgement Cut is nearly impossible to block.
  • Mastered Devil Trigger long before Dante.
  • Escaped an illusion by simply cutting through it.
  • Caught bullets with his katana from Ebony & Ivory, align them in a straight role and sent them back to Dante, where one bullet can push a sword to reach escape-velocity
  • Killed Beowulf the Lightbeast with very little effort.
  • While in a weakened and near-death state, pulled at Nero's Devil Bringer with enough force to rip the arm off from the elbow
  • Fought against Nero after he had awoken his Devil Trigger









Wiz: The Winner is.....
