Yuri is the central protagonist of Maiden of Black Water, the fifth main entry in the Fatal Frame franchise. She's a 19-year-old teenager who survived a car accident that killed her whole family; because of the accident, she developed a "Sixth Sense." This ability allows her to see ghosts. Throughout the game, she helps the other protagonists in solving strange cases around Mt. Hikami, a notoriously haunted location in the outskirts of Japan. Yuri is led to Mt. Hikami by her sixth sense and travels around the area and back, taking photographs of spirits with her Camera Obscura, a specialized camera that can take photographs and exorcise ghosts.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As an Assist Trophy[edit]

The protagonist of the Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water game is now an assist trophy. If she gets you with her Camera Obscura you'll be paralyzed for a short time, so watch out!

Yuri appears as an Assist Trophy in Ultimate. When summoned, she says "なに." (What?) and aims her Camera Obscura at fighters and takes a picture; the flash momentarily stuns the fighters, leaving them vulnerable, and gives them an effect that continues to damage the fighter, even after she disappears. Fighters under the effect have different expressions on their faces, ranging from fear, anger, and sadness.

She also appears as one of the game's collectible Spirits.

  • Yuri's appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate marks the first time a character from the horror genre appears in some capacity outside of being a trophy.
  • Yuri is the first Assist Trophy from a non-playable universe to hail from a game with a D (17+) rating from the CERO, an M (Mature) rating from the ESRB, and an 18+ rating from PEGI.
  • Despite Maiden of Black Water receiving an English dub, Yuri is only voiced in Japanese in Ultimate, with her using recycled voice clips from the Japanese version of Maiden of Black Water.
    • This makes her one of five characters to have a known English voice actor yet not be voiced in English in Ultimate, with the others being Mewtwo, Takamaru, Luminary, and Cloud Strife.
    • She is also one of the four Assist Trophies to speak Japanese in all versions of Ultimate, the others being Takamaru, Sablé Prince, and Akira.
      • She is also the only one of those four to be female and unable to be defeated.
