Ambition Destroyed: A Trial of Light ("Ambition Crushed! A Baptism by Light // Yabō o Funsai! Hikari no Senrei" (野望を粉砕! 光りの洗礼) ) is the eleventh episode of season 2 of YuYu Hakusho. It aired on June 26, 1993 in Japan and April 22, 2003 in the United States.


The masked fighter stops Yusuke from using his Spirit Gun, and tells him she'll do it herself. She starts chanting in a strange tounge, and then seems to paralyze the warriors in their tracks. She stabs them each in the heart with her finger, and then stops, and they fall to the ground, presumably dead. Kuwabara and Yusuke are both shocked at her methods, but she assures them that it was all that she could have done.

With that done, the Urameshi Team confronts Ichigaki himself. The coward still tries to weasel himself out, saying that their master is still sick, and only he has the cure. Hiei and Kurama prove him wrong, however, when the master of the dojo appears from the hallway, standing, although a bit weak. Hiei says that after beating up Ichigaki's fifth fighter, they found the whereabouts of the master, and Kurama easily created a cure for the minor illness. With no other way out, Ichigaki injects himself with a strange serum, morphing him into a huge, hulking beast with stretchable arms. He attacks them all, and when Hiei steps up to finish him off, Yusuke insists that he be the one to take him. He gives Ichigaki a ruthless beating, yelling at him the whole time, and eventually gives him a supercharged uppercut straight into the stands. With the Ichigaki Team dissolved, the Urameshi Team has won their second round.

The win is short-lived, however, since Yusuke and Kuwabara are still depressed about the death of the innocent fighters. The masked fighter tells them to look again, and the three fighters get up. She tells them that she used the "Spirit Wave" technique, a technique that uses an opponent's spirit energy against him. If their true heart is evil, then their spirit energy will destroy them, but if it is truly good, then they won't die. Yusuke and Kuwabara are thrilled to know that no innocent lives were lost. The fighers are re-united with their master, and all seems well.

Suddenly, the voice of the committee blares out through the arena, stating that the next match will begin immediately and Team Urameshi will be fighting it. Everyone is in shock that they're being forced to fight two matches back to back, especially when everyone is still in bad condition. The next team appears, five fighters in dark black cloaks, from Team Masho.
