Yoru (Japanese: ヨル, Yoru; codename Stealth) is an Agent & Radiant in Valorant.

Profile

Biography

Japanese native Yoru rips holes straight through reality to infiltrate enemy lines unseen. Using deception and aggression in equal measure, he gets the drop on each target before they know where to look.


Yoru is a duelist agent who specializes in faking out opponents and moving into unsuspecting positions. He has two abilities that allow him to move to a new location stealthily and another that is designed to make enemies think that he has moved. So keeping track of him is near impossible at times [1].

Gameplay

Getting up close to enemies with Dimensional Drift so that they can see you may distract them enough for your allies to move in and get a free kill.

Trivia

  • Yoru was disabled for a brief period in order to patch bugs regarding Gatecrash, which let him enter inside walls or under the map, giving a 'maphack/wallhack' glitch. The most notable glitch was on Breeze where Yoru could teleport inside the pyramids.
    • This bug also caused Breeze to be disabled on the Competitive queue.

Development

  • Before Yoru's release, 'Johns Latte' was the name that players predicted Yoru would be called after people found 'Johns Latte' as a title for the Valorant wallpapers file that "contained the silhouette of the 14th Valorant agent."

Lore

  • Yoru's mask allow him to pass through and see into another dimension[2][3].
    • It is thought that Yoru caused the break-in event that overlooks Icebox's A site to obtain this mask from the suit of Japanese Samurai armor that was being kept in the pod at the center of the room.
  • Yoru is searching for a lost ancestor who was a member of an ancient order of samurai[4].
    • "Who were you, ancestor? Where the hell did you go?".
  • Yoru had only just joined the Valorant Protocol when he was working with Phoenix on a mission at Icebox to prevent a spike attack from Mirror Earth agents[5].
