Katsuki Yuuri

Katsuki Yuuri (sometimes transliterated as Katsuki Yuri, or Westernized to Yuuri Katsuki) is a fictional Japanese figure skater and the main character of the sports anime Yuri on Ice. After a disastrous performance in the Grand Prix Final, Yuuri takes a break from competitive skating, only to have his career revived when his idol Victor Nikiforov becomes his coach. In the process, the two fall in love.


Yuuri's sexuality is never stated. It is strongly implied that he had a crush on Victor from a young age, but some fans argue that the show implies that he may also have had a past crush on his female childhood friend Yuuko Nishigori, who is already married to someone else at the time the show is set. Therefore, there is no strong consensus within the fandom about whether Yuuri is gay, bisexual, or something else.


The canon pairing of Victor Nikiforov/Katsuki Yuuri is the most popular ship in the Yuri on Ice fandom.
