YuYu Hakusho Wiki

Chinpo (珍宝?) is a martial artist, and one of the final eight contestants of Genkai's Disciple Selection Tournament.

He is voiced by Tomomichi Nishimura in the Japanese version and by Kyle Hebert in the English dub.


Chinpo was a round, martial artist wanderer with a long, curled mustache. He was considered powerful by normal human standards, as evidenced by his ability to pass Genkai's initial tests, but his techniques are never revealed. He is established as coming from China, being one of the few (if not only) human foreigners in this series.


Spirit Detective Saga[]

Chinpo's motivation for entering the tournament was never revealed. Rando, in his Shorin form, defeated Chinpo in the first round of Genkai's tournament. It is unknown if Chinpo was slain or merely incapacitated. While Shorin emerged injured after the fight and commented that he was just barely able to defeat Chinpo, his statement isn't necessarily reliable due to his true persona as Rando. Chinpo is not seen or referenced again after his defeat.


  • Of all the 8 finalists in Genkai's tournament, Chinpo was the only one whose abilities/skills were never revealed (even Kuroda's proficiencies with knives were seen in the anime and mentioned in the manga), though he seems to be a practitioner of kung fu.
