Yuri Skills at 5★


Might: 14  Range: 2
Enables 【Canto (2)】.
Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count-1). At start of turn, unit can move 1 extra space. (That turn only. Does not stack.) At start of combat, if foe's HP ≥ 50%, grants Atk/Spd+6 to unit during combat.
Effect: 【Dagger 7】

Range: 3
Unit and target ally swap places.

Cooldown Count = 2
Boosts damage dealt by 50%.

Grants HP+5, Atk/Spd/Def/Res+2. If unit is 5★, level 40, a Legendary or a Mythic Hero, and unit's stats total less than 175, treats unit's stats as 175 in modes like Arena. If unit is 5★, level 40, not a Legendary or a Mythic Hero, and unit's stats total less than 180, treats unit's stats as 180 in modes like Arena. (Higher-scoring opponents will appear. Stat total calculation excludes any values added by merges and skills.)

At start of turn, if Special cooldown count is at its maximum value, grants Special cooldown count-1.

Yuri Best IVs

Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (18) HP Superbane ★★☆☆☆
Atk (11) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (13) Spd Boon ★★★★★
Def (4) Def Bane ★★☆☆☆
Res (5) No Res IV ★★★☆☆

◯ = Stat gains +4 with a superboon, ✕= Stat goes down by -4 with a superbane, - = No assets or flaws

When using an Ascendant Floret, we recommend getting the next superboon if it fits the hero. If not, consider what stat your hero needs most.

+Spd/-Def

The best IVs for Yuri are +Spd and -Def.

He has a superboon in Spd and will effectively have 45 Spd at max lvl, making him a hard-hitting speedy unit.

Yuri's Def isn't very high, so it's safe to take it as his bane.

+Spd for a +10 Merge

The same reasons apply above if you want to merge Yuri to +10.

At 10 merges, he has an insane 50 Spd, which will allow him to double most units in the game.

Yuri Roles, Strengths, and Weaknesses

No Resplendent ImageResplendent

Yuri is a ranged physical attacker (range = 2). Therefore, when not accounting for the Weapon Triangle, the amount of damage he deals will be equivalent to his Atk minus the foe's Def stat.

Yuri Strengths

Insane plays can be made with Foul Play

Yuri Foul Play Fire Emblem Heroes FEH.PNG

Yuri's insane range and his Foul Play assist is shown here when he targets Anna to swap with.

Yuri's Assist skill allows him to swap spaces with any ally on the map 3 spaces away.

This is an insane skill that has opportunity for a lot of plays because Yuri can either retreat to safety, pull an ally back to safety, or swap in front of a dancer, allowing him another action.

Weapon gives him Canto and the ability to move an extra space

Yuri's dagger not only accelerates his Special trigger, but also gives him the ability to move an extra space at the start of the turn.

This means that Yuri has the movement of a cavalry unit and can quickly cross the map.

The weapon also gives him【Canto (2)】, which means that he can move to safety after attacking, making him perfect for hit and run tactics.

Yuri Weaknesses

No Close Counter means he is vulnerable to melee units

Yuri does not have any Close Counter in his kit and his Def is lower than his Res, which means that all it takes is a melee physical damage unit to walk up to him and say hello.

Value of Skills ★★★★★

Inheriting C Duel Infantry 4 and Time's Pulse 3

Yuri can be used to inherit C Duel Infantry 4 and Time's Pulse 3.

As he is the first unit to have C Duel Infantry 4, it's not possible to get all modes of this skill and Time's Pulse 3 off of one copy.

You can, however, get C Duel Infantry 1-3 from Loki, then inherit the rest of Yuri.

    • Why is B! Eliwood still 8.5? And Gatekeeper is definitely not 9.5 FYI

    • >>[49] Yes, Spring Idunn is a good candidate, as well as Brave Hector, Winter Felix, and Henriette herself :)
