This page covers facts and in-depth game usage of the character, Yuri Lowell. For a comprehensive reference list of in-game commands, see Command List: Yuri Lowell.
ACS Yuri using Azure Edge

Yuri using Souhajin.

Yuri Lowell (ユーリ・ローウェル Yuuri Rooueru) is a 21-year old (22 during the end of Vesperia's PS3 version) swordsman and the main protagonist of Tales of Vesperia. He grew up on the Lower Quarter of the Capital, Zaphias.

Yuri comes across as sarcastic and cynical, possibly due to the way the nobility treated the people of the Lower Quarter. He is the first character to be truly ambidextrous, and performs most of his combat techniques with combinations of both his hands.

Yuri's Combat Style is like an acrobatic fighting style, he usually throws his sword after each swing. He also punches with his right hand (wearing gauntlets). His last name is also in old French: "Lowell" means "Young Wolf", which may explain most of his "wolf"-themed attacks.

Character FactsEdit

  • Yuri has 570 HP.
  • He probably has the slowest standard attacks on the game, but it compensate on his longer arte combinations.
  • Yuri can perform (Unlike most of the other characters) multiples air dashes
  • Estelle can support Yuri using her Pikohan, which can stun the enemy for 2.5 sec.
  • Patty can support Yuri by using Star of Dream, the player can also use a lot of its support effects.
    (For instance: HP/TP/OVL Recovery, with certain probabilities.)

General Tips & UsageEdit

  • Yuri is a true brawler. His damage output and pressure options are extraordinary. Guard cancelled Souryuu Rengazan pressure is powerful, Genrouzan and Sougajin keeps your enemies on their toes, and when even those aren't enough, Patty is there to lend a hand. Yuri's damage output is incredible, especially in Overlimit, if you can learn the Shun'enkazan link.
  • Like most brawlers in other fighting games, Yuri suffers from a long TTS on most of his moves and very weak mobility options. Almost every other character in the game can outrun Yuri for as long as they need to, and outspeed him in attack speed as well. To properly take advantage of Yuri, you have to be patient to find that opening, but when you do, you must be relentless.
  • Yuri's Taunt increases his OVL Gauge, but does not affect the enemy's gauge.
  • Unlike some other characters, Yuri gets more hits than he deals damage, the difference with all his Mystic Arte is not so big, so he can perform longer combos and finish it off with one of his 3 Mystic Artes.
  • Yuri has three melee ground attacks (A, B, and C), and one melee aerial attack (A).
    • A and B have large vertical hitboxes, and C reaches the furthest.
    • If his aerial melee attack connects with an airborne opponent, Yuri can continue to combo on the ground.
  • Yuri's basic chain order consists of:
    • Melee > (Base > Arcane > Altered) > Burst > Mystic
    • Anything within the parenthesis can also be rearranged.
  • During Overlimit Lv1, his chain order becomes:
    • Melee > (Base > Base > Arcane > Arcane > Altered > Altered) > Burst > Mystic
    • As well as it continues to allow the arrangement to be chosen by the user.
  • During Overlimit Lv2, Yuri can chain ANY arte without respecting the arte limitation, he can even perform the same arte multiple times.

        • Note 3: Star of Dream should be used as soon as Yuri runs through the enemy, else the combo counter will be reset.
        • Note 4: It can be done as Melee Attack A X3 but the success rate of combinating like that is higher.
        • Note 5: Reppashou's command must end just as Yuri finishes waving the sword back to be resting on his shoulder.
        • Note 6: A lot of timing is necessary here. It's better to mash the Melee Attack C button.
        • Note 7: In order to maximize damage and hit number, it's suggested that E is pressed multiple times on the hi-ougi.
    • This combo can be hard to be placed on a fight but has interesting parts that can be used anytime in battle.
