Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Scale 7: "Genesis Omega Dragon!"

Appears in
Yuri (manga)

Yuri is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga. He is one of the four personalities that share Yuya Sakaki's body.



Yuri looks almost the same as his anime counterpart, including his clothes whenever he's in Yuya's mind. However like all of Yuya's personas, while taking over his body or presenting himself outside of his mind, he wears Yuya's white cape. While his other personalities' face only differ marginally, Yuri's eyebrows are drastically more pronounced than theirs and his expression is generally more menacing.


Unlike his anime counterpart, Yuri seems to show some compassion to others, as he seemed concerned about involving Yuya with a sorrowful memory of his.[1] He cares about Yuya so much, that he would punish anyone who tries to hurt or deceive him. He is also very perceptive, as he was the only one who was able to see through Sora's lies, out of all the people who was watching the duel between him and Yuya (except Reiji). Just like Yuto, Yuri also has a big ego in which he considers himself "handsome", worrying that Yuzu would be sad if he left, since she "likes handsome men".[2]


Yuri was first seen riding around Yuya's mind with Yugo. He questioned Yugo about whether they wouldn't create suspicions if they didn't go back soon, but Yugo replied that he had asked Yuto to cover for them. Yugo then found a shard which he claimed to be his "fragment" and picked it up, with Yuri asking him if he couldn't possibly want Yuya to remember him. He answered negatively and the shard dissipated in the process, explaining that he doesn't want Yuya's memories to be erased. Yuri said that that's good, since it would be better if he didn't remember them, to which Yugo agreed, saying that it would only cause him sorrow if he did.

Meanwhile, Yuya explained to Yuzu and Shuzo that he has four personalities, commenting with Yuto that he hadn't seen "those two" - Yugo and Yuri - lately, and wondered where they ran off to. Yuto then covered for them, saying that they were probably going on a tour or something, with Yuya imagining Yugo telling Yuri that he found a nice ridge in a section of Yuya's brain, and Yuri excitedly telling him to go full throttle.[1]

When Yuya started hesitating during his Duel with Sora Shiunin, Yuri stepped in and took over suddenly, commenting how his Fusion Deck would be a good opponent for Sora's. While Yuya protested how Yuri's consciousness had been absent for some time until then, he commented how Yuya is too soft and declared he could not care less about Sora's sister, unlike Yuya.[3] Yuri proceeds to attack Sora without mercy while telling Yuya that has been duped by the child who is forced to admit the truth. It was then that Yuri, while seeing Yuzu, realized too late that Sora modified the pain receiver of the Action Field's Solid Vision. Despite advising Yuya against it, flirting with Yuzu as a last resort, Yuri relents and gives Yuya back use of his body to finish the duel.

Soon after Yuya was brought back to their hideout by Yugo, Yuri felt bad about not being able to help Yuya more with Yugo's attempt to cheer up only making it worst. It was then that Yuri noticed someone is hacking Yuya's mind via his duel disc and that they are too late to prevent the figure from entering as Yugo offers to deal with the intruder. Though Yuri offers, Yugo turns him down since he's not fully healed from his fight with Sora. Yuri and Yuto eventually follow after Yugo when they start to fear the worst, watching his duel against Ren before coming to Yugo's side to deal with the resurfacing memories. Soon after, Yugo tells Yuri and Yuto that Ren knows of the World Illusion, with Yuri noting him as someone that cannot ignore.

Soon after, while Yugo rests, Yuto and Yuri help catch Yuya up on what occurred while he was out and speculate on Ren being part of a third faction seeking the Adam Factor they apparently possess. When Yuya learns Reiji found their hideout, Yuto and Yuri agree to disappear for a bit so Yuya can have a private discussion with Declan and quickly return to aid him in the duel that followed before Ren appear and their hideout collapsed from the strain of the duel. Soon after going off the grid, Yuri having suspected that they would be effected by the Adam Factor, Yuya undergoes a training regime his incarnations place him through to hone their dueling skills due to the Adam Factor disrupting their connection.


Yuya Sayaki

Yuya and Yuri are complete opposites of one another: while Yuya sees the good in others and duels for fun, Yuri sees only worst and duels in a sadistic manner. Yuri even forcefully took over Yuya's body during their duel with Sora, scolding Yuya for his gullibility while torturing Sora to expose him for the deceptive sadist he is. Their history prior to sharing a body is unknown at the time save that Yuri genuinely cares for Yuya to the point that he will show no mercy to anyone who harms Yuya in any way.

Yuto and Yugo

Yuri has a somehow friendly relation with his counterparts, though he is prone to argue with Yugo when his attempt to cheer him up only made him more depressed. But the three of them all share a common need to protect Yuya, even from his own memories.

Yuzu Hiragi

Having noted Yuzu's fondness for handsome guys, Yuri makes an assumption that he might be her type to the point of flirting with her to Yuya's dismay.


Compared to Yuya, Yuri knew instantly that Sora was lying about being forced to duel them against his will. He proceeded to torture Sora until he forced the child to reveal his true colors.


Like his anime counterpart, Yuri runs a Predator Plant Deck focusing on Fusion Summon.

Like his other counterparts, Yuri's Deck has been influenced by Yuya, with him using cards like "Pendulum Fusion" that allow him to Fusion Summon using Pendulum Monsters, and with his "Starve Venemy Dragon" evolving to a Pendulum Monster.
