While I know she's from "Art of Fighting", I usually picked Yuri as a part of my team in "King of Fighters". I think I'd usually roll with Yuri, Mai, and Kensou. Sometimes I'd mix it up with Athena or Iori. Maybe even a little Terry Bogard? Hah man I miss playing KOF '98 back in the day at the local arcade...but of course I miss arcades in general.
I like that Yuri was kind of buff, but spry.
