Elder ToguroElder Toguro is the oldest of the Toguro Brothers. He is very tiny, and usually rides on Younger Toguro's shoulder instead of walking. He is much more unpleasant than his younger brother, and can manage to anger the usually calm Younger Toguro. His goal in the tournament was to have every member of Team Urameshi dead, as well as their friends. In the second Character Popularity Polls in Japan, he was at 11th place with 421 votes.
Elder Toguro, along side his brother and Genkai, built a dojo together. After Kairen's attack, the three entered the Dark Tournament. After winning, the two wished to become demons. Sometime after this, they both became servants of Sakyo.
Elder Toguro's main ability is body manipulation, or rather changing the shape of it. He can reorganize the location of his bodily organs and shape himself into weapons for his brother, like swords or spears. He can create drills from his fingers and swords from his arm, and can also make "puppets" by transforming his arm into a miniature person. He also has very powerful regenerative abilities, managing to reform after being severed and attaining basic immortality.
Elder Toguro first appeared with his brother under Gonzo's leadership. When they fought against Kuwabara and Yusuke, Elder Toguro took the shape of a sword for his brother. After that he only makes a few background appearances until the final round.
Since the dawn of fantasy storytelling in The Epic of Gilgamesh, immortality has been an ever present idea in myth, legend, and literature. Different rules regarding this concept have developed over time but many modern stories still feature characters who presumably can live forever.
