The main protagonist of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's and team leader of Team 5D's. He used his signature monsters to help him win during his duels including Shooting Star Dragon, Stardust Dragon, and Shooting Quasar Dragon.
Yusei was born in Neo Domino City and was the son of the great scientist Professor Fudo - creator of the momentum system which powered Neo Domino City. When he was just a baby, his father was working on momentum when Rudger Godwin caused it to go into reverse, resulting in a huge disaster which split a part of Neo Domino City off. This piece of the city would be known as the Satellite. Before the disaster, Yusei was placed in a capsule and sent out.
He would then end up in the Satellite where he would grow up for most of his life. During his childhood, he meet his best friends Jack Atlas and Crow Hogan. As they got older, they eventually met Kyosuke Kiryu and formed a gang and called it "Team Satisfaction" because they felt that they may never leave Satellite, so they'll just have to be satisfied with what they have. As team Satisfaction, they sought to get rid of all the duel gangs which ruled over different parts of the Satellite. Eventually, there was only one left and Yusei was about to duel the last member of the gang but the gang member instead tried to kill Yusei by making him fall off of a building, however he was saved by Kiryu and Jack took out the last member. With this, all duel gangs were gone but Kiryu wasn't satisfied and had the team start go ing after anyone who simply had a duel disk. It was at this point that Jack and Crow would leave because they felt he was going too far but Yusei d ecided to stay with him to try to keep him under control. Eventually, Kiryu came to the conclusion that the ultimate duel gang was the Sector Security of Neo Domino City and decided to go after them. It was at this point that Yusei would decide to leave in hopes that Kiryu would not go after Security if he was alone. Unfortunately, this didn't stop Kiryu and he sent a bomb to the security building and blew up a part of it, gaining their attention. As Kiryu was being chased, eventually, Yusei,
Jack, and Crow found him but refused to help him. Kiryu at one point badly wounded an officer and tried to kill him but Yusei stopped him and held him down. Yusei then tried to protect Kiryu by saying that he was the leader of the gang but they already knew Kiryu was responsible and arrested him. As he was being arrested, he saw an officer patting Yusei on the shoulder and accused Yusei of ratting him out to the police to which Yusei tried to deny but Kiryu didn't listen as he was taken away.
As time passed, Yusei would make friends with others such as Rally Dawson, Nerve, Taka, and Blitz and at the same time a gap would grow between him and Jack because of their differing goals. One day, Jack would be invited to the city by Rex Godwin but required Yusei's Stardust Dragon as a passport so he tied up Rally and left him on a boat out in the ocean during a storm and as Yusei went to save him, Jack took his Stardust Dragon and left. Two years would pass and during this time Yusei and his friends built a new D-Wheel with the purpose that Yusei would one day travel to Neo Domino City to confront Jack and get his Stardust Dragon back. One day, Rally stole an advanced chip from a factory for Yusei to use in his D-Wheel but he got tracked down by Security. Yusei protected Rally by challenging Tetsu Ushio to a duel and he defeated him, so Ushio let him go. He would one day also duel with Uryu, a man from the city who looked down on Satellite and was picking on Yusei's friends, and upon defeating Uryu he also taught him that the true key to victory is the soul of a duelist who believes in all his cards.
Later on, Yusei became the team leader of the new Team, Team 5D's. The team includes Jack, Crow, Aki, Lua, Luca, and Bruno. They are the team of the World Riding Grand Prix. Against Z-One, Yusei proceeds to synchro summon Life Stream Dragon which is Rua/Leo's signature card. He then continues to activate Synchro Panic, allowing him to special summon as many Synchro Monsters as possible, allowing him to then synchro summon his most powerful monster to date, Shooting Quasar Dragon.
