Overview

Overview

Yukiko is a zoning character with very polarized strengths and weaknesses. Her damage increases dramatically when she stocks up her fire levels all the way up to 9 and her unique toolset can open up many options for her partner. To best make use of her, a Yukiko player must be proficient at playing neutral and mitigating risks when pressuring the opponent while micromanaging health, meter, partner bar, and fire level to win out in the long run. Making her a difficult character to use because of her sluggish moves, low health, and subpar damage without fire boost
"I'm not as gentle as I look..."
Lore:A third-year Yasogami high school student and member of the "Investigation Team." Yukiko is the sole heiress and upcoming manager at her family's historical and famous inn, the Amagi Inn. She has the image and mannerisms of a Japanese traditional woman Yamato Nadeshiko(大和撫子), but as her childhood best friend Chie knows her deep down, she's also an assertive, kind-hearted girl who possesses an iron will (and a rather bizarre, scatterbrained sense of humor).


She gained her Persona, Konohana-Sakuya, after facing the ugly side of herself. Now having the confidence to stand up for herself and make her own decisions in life for a change, Yukiko makes the conscious effort to help her friends solve and fight the wild, dangerous mysteries that plagues Inaba over the course of a couple years, blossoming into a woman of her own choosing.

Yukiko Amagi
Pros Cons
  • Large normals
  • Ability to infinitely recover her (and her partner's) health
  • Stacking fire stocks makes her one of the most damaging characters in the game
  • Excels at using Resonance Blaze mechanics
  • Versatile and unique zoning tools
  • Can be a strong anchor/solo fighter especially with Lv. 9 Resonance Blaze/healing properties
  • Mixup potential that cannot be avoided even by pushblocking to the other end of the screen
  • Good air game
  • Possesses ability for wild comebacks with her fire attacks (ex. Lv. 9 Agidyne deals nearly 10k dmg alone)
  • Slow normals
  • Not beginner-friendly
  • Awkward anti-air tool
  • Below average health
  • Fire boosting mechanics can be difficult to implement
  • Persona reliant, popping Sakuya leaves Yukiko wide open
  • Fragile due to her playstyle, leading to a very fast KO if too many mistakes are made
  • Very meter reliant

Flame Boost

Yukiko's can stack up to 9 fire levels, which amplifies the damage of her fire-based attacks (such as Maragi, Agidyne, her A autocombo enders, 5P and 6P). You gain 1 stack from using 22A or 6P, and 2 stacks from 22B or 22C. Each use will deal 500 recoverable damage to Yukiko. The damage increase is significant, for example, making a raw Agidyne do roughly 4.5k at Lv.0, and 9.7k at Lv.9.


See her frame data for exact values. Clash Assault, Cross Raid and the partner version of Agidyne are not affected by fire boost level. Fire boost level CANNOT be reduced, permanent up until the match is over.

  • Yukiko's "jab." Covers up a decent amount of range, making it useful for footsies. It can even work as an anti-air, as it boasts a deceptively large vertical hit-box. Has fairly slow startup, so don't use it to initiate your offense. Also, be aware of your range when using this move, as a successive 4AA or 4AAA will whiff at 4A's maximum range. In these cases, use 6B or 2C. Jump cancellable on block.

4AA has satisfactory vertical reach, above satisfactory horizontal reach. Jump cancellable on block.


  • Hard knock-down on air-borne targets. Whiffs at 4A's maximum range.

4AAA is not able to cancel into other normals; only sweep (2C), specials and supers are available. While it is safe on block, she's fairly left wide open on pushblock.


  • Negative on block, but propels opponent a significant distance from Yukiko, making it hard to punish.
  • Opponent experiences 6 additional frames of hitstop

4AAAA is your Smart Combo ender. If optimizing for damage, this move should be considered above both variants of Agi. Does not deal more damage than Agilao, however. Damage scales with Flame Boost.

  • Moves Konohana-Sakuya forward. Will attack from its location so long as it's not too far away from Yukiko (around 1 5A lengths)
  • Persona attacks 3 frames after coming into range if before 28 frames

Yukiko summons Konohana-Sakuya, who will lunge towards the enemy with a proximity-based multihit attack. Since Sakuya tracks to the enemy's position, she will immediately strike with a rising attack when it is within vicinity; otherwise she will go a set distance away from Yukiko before attacking. Fantastic in blockstrings as Sakuya is unaffected by Reject Guards. Once Sakuya is out, she remains at her position for some time before she returns to Yukiko, enabling the use of disjointed persona pressure.

Very risky to use in neutral, as Yukiko cannot move the whole time this move is thrown out.


  • Hard knockdown on air hit
  • Jump-cancellable on block

Multi-hitting attack. Gives a knockdown on aerial hit. This is the typical point from which Yukiko can mix up the opponent between high (5C, j.C, jump cancels) and low (5AAA,2C, 214X) options.


  • Hits low

Sakuya attacks downwards. All hits of this move must be blocked low. In conjunction with j.C (blocked high), 5AAA (blocked low) has high/low mixup potential that cannot be pushblocked.


  • Moves Konohana Sakuya forward
  • Opponent experiences 6 additional frames of hitstop
  • Unburstable on hit

Same ender as 4A autocombo. Hard to punish as it creates distance between Yukiko and the opponent. On hit it puts the opponent full screen away. Damage rises with fire levels.

  • Special cancelable
  • 4B fans travel slower than 5B fans while 6B fans travel faster
  • Opponent experiences 10 frames hitstop

Fan toss. Use these to keep the opponent in check during neutral. Regardless of distance, she is able to cancel into another move if the fan is blocked or hit. 6B's speed makes for a fast CH starter, while 4B lets Yukiko recover while the projectile is still on-screen. Decent startup but poor recovery, so be wary of opponents who can challenge with an option of their own.


  • Special cancelable
  • Opponent experiences 10 frames hitstop

A followup that has you throw out a second fan. Similar to the first fan, you can input 4BB to make the fan travel slower or 6BB to make it travel faster. The input you use can be different from the first B input. Not recommended to be used carelessly in neutral, as Yukiko has massive recovery, and the second fan can be easily avoided. Auto-corrects if the opponent crosses Yukiko up, so has fringe uses as a panic mash if you see the opponent jumping over you as the first fan is whiffing.

  • 1B travels vertically, 2B travels more diagonally
  • Invul kicks in fairly late and is short, not recommended as a reactionary anti-air
  • Opponent experiences 10 frames hitstop

Anti-air. Can be used to stop the enemy's momentum mid-air, and hits standing characters with tall hitboxes. Puts Yukiko in a bad position if whiffed, so be sure to use this with good judgment. Normal/special/super/jump cancelable on block or hit. A very useful zoning button, able to deny many angles of approach. In 2.0, yukiko will now throw 2 fans with 2B, instead of just one.

  • Holding the buttons will let you stay in Dia indefinitely and keep healing.
  • Projectile invincible from frame 1 until you release the button (there is a window after you release the button where you are vulnerable even to projectiles.)
  • Levitates slightly, providing an airborne state (NOT a good thing unless against grabs. Free air combo)
  • Short horizontal, mediocre vertical hitbox, plus a persona move, which makes it even riskier to throw out
  • Heals 60 hpf for 18 frames (1080 hp), then 30 hpf (1800 hps) for remainder; Yukiko is forced to "hold" Dia for 21 frames minimum

Yukiko's DP. Very unsafe if blocked. It nullifies all projectile attacks and briefly physical attacks (startup only) before knocking the opponent back and granting Yukiko substantial healing time. Dia itself does find use as a tool that can rewards Yukiko after a knockdown, if her opponent is far away, or if they're unable to close in on her right away. Can also be used offensively as a combo ender, disrupt Cross Bursts, and even denies DHCs (UNLESS the DHC is not a projectile, in which case Yukiko WILL be punished). Depending on the right partner (i.e. Waldstein, Hyde), Yukiko can nearly fully heal herself during a match! When covered by an assist, particularly projectiles, Yukiko can safely tap Dia. The further she is from the opponent and the more cautious the opponent is can determine how long she can reasonably hold for. Utilizing Reject Guard in combination with an immediate assist call can be a decent way to find room to use Dia. Dia's projectile invulnerability allows Yukiko to be something of an anti-zoning zoner, as she can avoid any (and every) projectile while healing at the same time. Take care when using this, as Yukiko can get punished while she's recovering. A simple tap leaves little room for worry, but if held down for too long and the opponent recovers fast enough, Yukiko is left wide open. Make sure you're on the same footing as your opponent when considering this move, if not faster yourself. Finally, because Yukiko levitates during the state, she cannot be thrown or command grabbed out of it.

  • Hold the button to delay the explosion of the placed fire mine. The mine will explode when you release the button
  • Explosion becomes active 7 frames after release, 22 frame wait minimum

Fire mine remains in place until the button is released. The mine disappears if Yukiko blocks or gets hit. BEWARE: The explosion's hitbox will disappear even after you've released the button in these situations, meaning trading with this button is basically impossible. Useful for discouraging approaches.


  • It's possible to have A/B/C versions held simultaneously.
  • Explosion becomes active 7 frames after release, 22 frame wait minimum

Farther away mine. Same as A version aside from fire mine range.

While holding B version seems tempting since the range helps maintain long-distance zoning, it does prevent Yukiko from using any of her fans. Useful for discouraging approaches, and the extended range gives it more utility by sniping assists.

  • Remains active in place for a bit after reaching destination.
  • First hits low, then hits mid
  • Pressing A again or using negative edge will make it explode earlier while it's traveling

Travels fullscreen. Fast speed moving projectile that then creates a sort of fire wall afterwards. Can pushblock your opponent into it, and the hitbox is active enough to catch bursts as well. Because of such lengthy recovery, she is unable to follow-up on the hit herself outside of the corner and must call on an assist. The pillar part of the attack will not be interrupted even if Yukiko dies, however if Yukiko blocks or gets hit while it's traveling the maragi will disappear.

The pillar's tall hitbox makes it useful to deny air approaches.


  • Remains active in place for a bit after reaching destination.
  • First hits low, then hits mid
  • Pressing B again or using negative edge will make it explode earlier while it's traveling

Travels slower than the A version, letting Yukiko protect herself or even run behind it. 214B has slower startup, but faster recovery. Can control when the flame pillar rises by either releasing the button after holding it down or simply tapping it again. Combined with it's slow speed, it's amazing for space control.

High/low unblockable potential due to it's slow startup and low hitting properties. Plus on block. This move is a staple for Yukiko's combos, enabling 214B>4AAA>214B.

Use this after a knockdown, while an assist is protecting you or in situations you know you're safe. Use Dia to regain back the health you've sacrificed from this move. Once Yukiko has reached lv. 9, she no longer takes damage should you input this afterward.


  • Grants 2 levels of Fire Boost
  • Costs Yukiko 500 health that's recoverable
  • 57 total frames as of 1.30

Unsafe but builds you levels fast. By leveraging partners, active switch, and cross combos, this is a great way to help Yukiko get 22C's benefits and gain higher levels without sacrificing meter. Great synergy with long unburstable moves like command grabs and moves like Yumi's Aerial Rave. Once again, use Dia or tag her out and let her regenerate passively to heal the red life you've accumulated from boosting. She does not deal damage to herself anymore once she reaches lv.9.

  • Explosion becomes active 7 frames after release, 30 frame wait minimum

Puts the mine on top of the opponent and tracks them horizontally. Deals a substantial amount of damage with levels. Eats up the enemy's red life on hit, killing their health recovery potential during Resonance Blaze. Slower than the other two versions, but it's tracking qualities make it great battles at full screen. Still disappears on block.

  • Travels full screen and has great frame advantage on block
  • Pressing C or releasing C while it's traveling will make the fire explode into the pillars where it currently is instead of traveling the full distance.

Crawls along the ground at top speed, turning into forward-moving flame pillars upon reaching opponent. Like Agilao, it eats up the enemy's red life on hit. Amazing for meter dumping, as it can loop into itself at high fire levels to deal incredible damage or disgusting chip damage in resonance. It's high blockstun also makes it great for resetting pressure. All around great move.

Takes 500 recoverable life like the rest of fire boosts while also getting 2 fire stocks. It's short recovery gives it utility during pressure. She can loop off of it on hard knockdowns (IE: 4AAA>22C>2A, 4AAA>22C>2A). A great way to dump meter during resonance, since fire levels are forever.

  • Long startup but great for controlling air space and extending combos on airborne opponents.
  • Gives Yukiko 1 level of fire boost and drains 500 recoverable health
  • Sakuya tracks the opponent's direction on the screen, ensuring she doesn't go the other way regardless of characters changing position.
  • Specifically coded to not hit crouching opponents.

She stands behind you, fire boosts up a level and then throws out her Persona that turns into a giant invulnerable projectile in the form of a Phoenix that travels the entire screen. On Active Switch or Cross Combo activation, the projectile vanishes. Should it be blocked midair, it leaves them open to an air unblockable setup. If they stand block it, they're wide open for lows. If they crouch it, they can be opened up by overheads and command grabs. A good assist for forcing mindgames. Unforunately, less impressive against characters with long crouching normals and anti airs, as well as those with DP's that have long invulnerability frames.

  • This assist has a bigger and more active hitbox than the point version of the move, it's also faster. Has similar proration/damage values, meaning it will most likely worsen your combo. Very active, making it easy to meaty with this move.
  • You cannot hold down 4P in order to continuously heal Yukiko and her partner, unlike with her DP. It has a set duration.
  • Heals from 26-138
  • Heals 20 hp per frame (up to 2320) to Yukiko if point is not nearby; 20 hpf to point and 10 hp per frame (up to 1160) to Yukiko otherwise

Yukiko heals herself and her partner, unlike when she's on point (where she can only heal herself). Comes with a hitbox on startup, so unlike Celica 4P, it can be used on offense and to extend combos. This lets you heal yourself while continuing your offense. You can also punish Cross Bursts with this move, though it's narrow hitbox makes it quite finicky, similar to Nu-13's 4p.

Due to it's long duration, Yukiko is extremely vulnerable when this assist is out. Be sure to have partner gauge to activate cross combo and defend her at a moment's notice. Because it has full projectile guard point once active, it is a nice tool to use against zoners or projectile-heavy attacks, as there is very little the opponent can do to interrupt her. That being said, she can be hit out of startup or recovery.

  • Values in [] for Enhanced version

  • Sakuya and Fireball track the opponent's side
  • VERY unsafe on block

Yukiko calls forth her Persona, who violently enraptures the enemy in a fiery twirl, ending with a massive fireball. Once out, Sakuya spins for a brief duration, and cannot be pushblocked away. If you happen to hit a partner character, this can be useful for securing a KO on them. Deals massive damage with fire levels.

Depending on the partner, an early DHC will allow the partner (examples are Weiss, Nine, Aegis etc.) to follow-up while Agidyne is still in motion.

Surprisingly ignorant due to its disjointed hitbox, long active frames, and non-projectile qualities.

  • Values in [] for Enhanced version
  • Minimum damage 15% (120*N) [150*N]
  • Tap B+C to make the flames come from Yukiko (C Maragidyne in P4Arena), and hold B+C to make the flames come from the far side of the screen instead (D Maragidyne in P4Arena).
  • You can throw 5B fans soon enough to catch them at the end of the Distortion as a direct combo. This move is so + you can both do this on hit and block.

This move is invincible on startup and pushes the opponent far away even on block (for the uncharged version). It does a lot of chip damage at high fire boost levels and in resonance blaze: about half of most characters' life bars with level 9 fireboost and resonance level 4. Charged version is useful for calling out characters who like to play at full screen. Do take heed that the opponent can pushblock the charged version and break free from the blockstring.

Extremely ignorant button which is plus on block. You will use this move.

Yukiko summons Sakuya one last time, as her Persona transforms into endless cherry blossoms that swarm and eviscerate the opponent while Yukiko dances through it all, ending with a beautiful pose. The screen freeze when Yukiko makes a pose, so it can catch mindless opponents pressing buttons. Sakuya's lunge does some significant pushback, so it can be awkward to punish, but it bears mentioning that it is naturally unsafe on block, so, like always, astral wisely.

Can be canceled from Agi and Maragi, and Sakuya confirms all the way from nearly fullscreen.
