Yuna in "Dead Fantasy"
|Affiliation||Team Final Fantasy|
|Debuts||Final Fantasy X|
Dead Fantasy I
|Race||Half-Human and Half-Al Bhed|
|Weapons||Tiny Bee Pistols|
Yuna spends most of Final Fantasy X as a summoner on her Pilgrimage, a sacred journey across Spira to attain the Final Aeon, the only weapon that can defeat Sin. She is the daughter of High Summoner Braska and an unnamed Al Bhed woman, who died when Sin attacked her ship at sea. The Al Bhed woman was the sister of Cid, who is the father of Rikku and Brother, Yuna's cousins. At her core she is a very kind-hearted, loyal, honest and polite young woman who strives to see the best in others and has a very strong conviction to complete whatever task she feels is her duty to perform. Early in her quest to expel Sin, she met Tidus, which she fell in love with.
Role in Dead FantasyEdit
Yuna is the first character introduced in Dead Fantasy. Yuna begins the show running through an enormous ancient temple while being pursued by two shadowy figures, who later turns out to be Kasumi and Ayane. She puts up a fair fight against the two, but ultimately needed help to even the odds. Rikku drops down and saves her. The two proceed to do surprisingly well against the two ninja, despite their limited use of magic. Unfortunately for them, their final charge is halted by Hitomi. With the introduction of a third opponent the two don't fare as well. Yuna gets thrown into a dark abyss, but is saved by Rikku, who picks up and tosses Kasumi, teleporting the both of them back up to the surface. Shortly afterward the two cousins are knocked outside the structure. Just as they are about to be finished by the Dead or Alive team, they are saved by Tifa, and regroup.
She later fights Kasumi in the flower fields in DFIV, though neither lands a blow on the other. Thereupon they were both suddenly attacked by Kasumi Alpha clones. Yuna switches into her Summoner dressphere, killing all of the flowers in the field, and forcing all of the clones to retreat several dozen yards. There she called forth her aeons to fend off the clones. However, they were unable to defeat all of the Kasumi Alphas, and one by one they were dismissed (as aeons cannot be killed in a normal battle). This greatly weakened Yuna, who reverted back into her original Gunner Dressphere. Just as she was about to be dispatched by the horde of clones, Cloud intervened and knocked them away. Upon his entrance, Kasumi retreats. Yuna joins him as he heads toward the city where Tifa was brought, collapsing onto his back.
Yuna only appears at the end of the fifth episode with Cloud on Fenrir, still sleeping on his back. The two of them arrive at a city where DOATEC presumbly is, most likely to rescue Tifa.
Yuna appears in the music video Dead Fantasy Gee in her Songstress Dressphere from Final Fantasy X-2. She sings and dances alongside Kasumi, Ayane, Rikku, Hitomi, Tifa, Rinoa, Kairi, and Cissnei. She plays the role of Girls' Generation leader Kim Taeyeon.
In Final Fantasy X-2, Yuna has undergone a complete transformation from Final Fantasy X. Her brunette hair is slightly shorter than in Final Fantasy X, resembling Tidus' hairstyle, with a red braid that stretches down to her ankles (however in Dead Fantasy the braid has been removed by Oum). Final Fantasy X-2 gave Yuna a separate appearance for each of the 13 dresspheres used in combat, with details that distinguish her from Rikku and Paine. Yuna's default appearance is the Gunner Dressphere. She dons a modified halter-neck top with the symbol of Zanarkand Abes across her chest and a pink hood in the back. She wears yellow armbands over her biceps, a black bracelet on her left wrist (In Dead Fantasy, she also has one on her right wrist), and denim boyshorts. She also possesses a large pouch resting on her left hip over an ankle-lengthed blue and white half-skirt-like sash with laced thigh-high boots.
In her Summoner Dressphere; Yuna wears a purple pleated, flower-patterened dress; black boots; a black spaghetti-string camisole under a white sash of material that wraps around her neck and over her chest; a yellow patterned Obi with a Chocho musubi knot and a decorative Obidome to clinch the cords. Two separate furisode sleeves hanging from her upper arms complete the white and blue ensemble (in Dead Fantasy the sleeves are short instead of long). Through both Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2, Yuna keeps a small, blue-beaded earring that hangs from her right ear, hidden by a lock of her hair, woven into blue beads with golden rings around the larger, middle bead, and a silver pendant around her neck. She has a heart-shaped face with small features. A unique trait of Yuna's is her heterochromia; her left eye is normal blue, while the right is green to represent her Al-Bhed nature, though without the characteristic spiral, like all Al-Bhed.
Yuna is around normal in terms of speed and strength, but she is able to shoot both bullets and energy-blasts from a great distance in her Gunner Dressphere. As a Summoner, she is able to summon Ixion, Shiva, Valefor, Ifrit and Bahamut to fight. She is also equipped with Potions and Ethers, as seen in Dead Fantasy II. It's a probability that Yuna will also be able to utilze other Dressperes. She is a average fighter of the FF team.
Although Yuna is able to hold her own in battle, when outnumbered, she eventually needs help shifting the odds in her favor, as shown in Dead Fantasy I before Rikku arrives to help, and again in Dead Fantasy IV, when Cloud Strife comes to her aid.
The only person to be shown so far in Dead Fantasy with a previous attachment to Yuna is Rikku. Rikku and Yuna are cousins, as well as good friends. In Final Fantasy X, Rikku goes so far as trying to kidnap Yuna in order to prevent her from sacrificing herself. Several times throughout Dead Fantasy, including in her introduction, Rikku saves Yuna. Likewise, Yuna can be seen saving Rikku as well, such as when she tackled the much larger Rachel down to halt her attack on her cousin. In Dead Fantasy, Yuna and Rikku work well together, pulling off team combos against their enemies.
Just as Yuna is about to fall to Kasumi's clones in DFIV, she is saved by Cloud. His unexpected rescue makes more sense when you analyze the the obscure dialogue in the opening. It reads: "Why am I here? Because... I trust her. And because... you... remind me of someone I said goodbye to a long time ago..." The person Cloud said goodbye to was Aerith, the one who he trusts and the reason why he's there was because of Tifa. There are several similarities between Yuna and Aerith. They are both White Mages, have brown hair and green eyes (one in Yuna's case), and are alike in personality. On the other hand, Cloud could remind Yuna of Tidus, both being blond, spiky-haired warriors. After saving Yuna, she clutches Cloud and collapses onto him.
- Yuna's attack cries are taken from Jun Kazama of the Tekken series.
- In Dead Fantasy II, Yuna uses Lili's Femme Fatale, Divine Step & Heavy Languish from Tekken and Dante's Rainstorm from Devil May Cry.
- Monty Oum had to remove Yuna's long ponytail, sash, and earring to cut down on the time it takes to run dynamic simulations. She also has noticable changes to her attires: as a Gunner , she has wristbands on both wrists oppposed to just her left one; as a Summoner, her sleeves are short instead of long and her hidden camisole is missing; and as a Songstress, the black stripes of her forearm adornments are missing.
