Yuffie is the main character of INTERmission, and the only playable one at that. With that in mind, it may be of no surprise that Yuffie has an extremely powerful toolset at her disposal compared to the characters from the regular game if they were solo. As such, you can choose to build her in a number of ways, with a focus on magic, physical or even support however with Sonon only really able to play the role of tank, you’ll want to focus on damage dealing with Yuffie as much as possible.
Yuffie sits in the middle compared to the other characters in terms of most stats however she ranks highest in LCK and SPD. Despite sitting in the middle for most stats, Yuffie’s arsenal makes her far more versatile than every other character in the Final Fantasy VII Remake and allows her to fulfil any role effectively. Being able to throw the Shuriken and then pelt them with Ninjutsu of any element at zero cost to MP is massive, allowing Hard Mode to become a lot easier and if you get used to the timing of Brumal Form, you can evade most attacks and gain ATB at the result of it. This of course allows you to use her MP for situations such as healing or buffing with Haste or Barrier as you won’t need to worry about offensive spellcasting.
Yuffie is also the only character in the game that can make use of the new Precision Defense mechanic debuted in Intergrade. If you guard just before an enemy hit strikes you, you’ll significantly reduce the damage, gain ATB and depending on your Weapon Upgrades, gain positive effects such as Regen or Barrier. Even more useful, you’ll be able to cause many foes to enter the Pressured state once executed. Yuffie is best played by selecting the correct Elemental Ninjustsu, tossing the Shuriken and using Windstorm (which works better when the Shuriken is thrown) to build up Banishment and unleash Banishment III for massive damage, killing most foes outright. Furthermore, once you learn Synergized Limit Breaks for Sonon, Limit Synch will become one of the hardest hitting Limits in the game, becoming a must for some of the more difficult encounters in INTERmission.
