NoahInuyashaThe stunningly prolific Rumiko Takahashi is one of Japan's most successful manga artists. Urusei Yatsura, Ranma 1/2 and InuYasha are familiar to anyone with even a passing interest in manga or anime, and that's just the tip of the iceberg; she's also responsible for Mermaid Forest, Maison Ikkoku, One Pound Gospel, and countless shorter works.

Based on the anime of the same name, Inuyasha: Demon Tournament is a one on one tactical fighter, somewhat similar to a stripped down Tactics Arena Online or Shining Force mixed with Street Fighter. Demon Tournament has been expertly realized in Flash and is available on AdultSwim.com to promote the series now airing on Cartoon Network.

Select one of eight different characters to begin. Each character has a unique set of moves, represented as a deck of cards. On every card you'll find a name, damage amount, energy cost, and a 3x3 grid. Use a movement card to move in the direction of the arrow on the bottom of the card. Using an attack card will subtract the card's energy cost from your energy bar and, if the move connects with your opponent, the card's damage amount is subtracted from their HP. The red squares on the grid of attacking cards determine the area affected by the attack. Each player also has a guard card, which will protect you from up to 15 damage received on the turn it is played, and an energy up card, which will restore your energy bar by 15.

Both you and your opponent choose 3 cards to begin each round, which are revealed one by one as the action unfolds. As a reward for defeating a foe you get a shard of the Shikon Jewel and the opportunity to choose one of five mystery cards to add to your deck, granting you abilities such as special attacks, enhanced movement or healing.

dappya.gifAnalysis: I've always been more fond of Ataru, Lum and the Urusei Yatsura gang, but Demon Tournament is superbly produced and doesn't require any knowledge or appreciation of InuYasha. Though the combat tends to degenerate into random guesswork, it is fast and fun guesswork, with graphics and animation that rival commercial products. Also, watch out: after completing the game and trying to start a new battle I encountered a strange bug, kicking me out of Flash and into an error message.

Play Inuyasha: Demon Tournament

D'oh! I've been too busy, but I've been meaning to write this one up for 2 months! Great games--I've been playing it more than a year. Totally worth 15 minutes of your time.


I am becoming a error i nothing see it is a black box but i have the newest flash player!What doing?


I have an error where the round will start and itll show the movement of the opponent but the opponent character isnt there. The game is more or less stuck with nothing to do but start over. :\


Nikola, I had the same problem until I disabled Norton Internet Security. That might work for you.


I shutdown zone alarm internet security but i cant play the game


now i understand why those card games are so popular... soo fun!

There was a spate of this type of game a while ago. There's a Legend of Zorro one, a Dragon Booster one, and a few others. They're more interesting than the usual licensed fare, but they do tend to be about outguessing the computer.


after you download the newest version of flash, you have to restart the comp to make it work.

PS: Inuyasha is my favorite show!! thanks for posting this game! ^_^


the last enemy is naraku. Enjoy!


Oh, man, I remember this game. I was playing this constantly a couple years ago and sent it to addictinggames (the only games website I knew of back then... ugh). I loved this game so much, and still do. I'm going to go play it now, thanks for reminding me...


its cool the games.. I love inuyasha


go inuyasha


Great, i tried once to play this one but in my old (really old!) pc and it didn't worked... now i see, I SUV the game... i only play with Miroku who is also my favourite character from Inuyasha XD


Doesn't work on my new PC, but I'm behind a websense wall at work so the content might be blocked.

It was fun though, I love these turn based casting games.

It's too hard...though overall=it's pretty good


this game is fun but I HATE fighting miroku

Anonymous June 4, 2008 12:48 AM

i ALWAYS end up getting a tie... i HATE IT! XD




I wish I had something to show me what all the special cards were >.>

Great FUN game


In the instructions it says "name of action"
then the numbers mean "damage caused" and "energy cost".
The chart is "range of action" so if you stand in the center,
damage will occur in those red squares.


Hmm... is it just me, or when you go to play the game it doesn't work? I can get to the site fine, but Idon't even see the game window. I can see the background, all of the links to other games, but not the game itself.
If it was my computer, it would do this just to spite me, but I doubt it...

this game is very highly unbalanced as Naraku is definitely the strongest character in the game, all his attacks have ridiculous range, his attacks do the most damage, and doesnt consume as much energy as the others do, For example I easily beat the game with Naraku on Easy and Hard setting, but doing the same with Miroku or Inuyasha was so much harder.
