Bio

Centaurian scoundrel Yondu Udonta may not seem like much of a threat at first glance, but when you hear a whistle and his deadly Yaka Arrow comes out to play, it's not advisable to make any rash decisions. Leader of the Ravagers and mentor to Star-Lord, Yondu is a stickler for honor, but not above breaking a rule or ten to get what he wants.

Hints

Strong Match-Ups 0 0
  • Electro
    • Yondu can be quite effective against everyone’s (least) favorite walking Thorns node. His Yaka Arrows are Projectile Attacks, meaning they don’t trigger Static Shock (or Thorns!), and his ability to trigger Bleed through his Opponent’s Block lets him do full Bleed damage but with reduced Static Shock.
  • Colossus
    • Yondu holds all the cards in this matchup. He can steal Colossus’s Armor Ups, he triggers Armor Breaks instead of his Bleeds due to Colossus’s Immunity, and he has Class Advantage for even more damage!
  • Magik
    • Yondu’s reduction in Power Gain when applying Debuffs helps him do more Damage per point of Power his opponent gains. Against Magik, this helps keep her from triggering her Limbo.
Weak Match-Ups 0 0
  • Hyperion
    • All of Hyperion’s Power Gain makes it difficult for Yondu to keep him from getting a Special Attack off, and since he’s a Cosmic hero, he has class advantage to help him hit even harder. Though Yondu’s Weakness on Specials can help keep him alive for a while, he’s definitely fighting uphill.
  • Agent Venom
    • Yondu’s problem with Agent Venom also extends to several other Champions, Crossbones and Groot come to mind (figured it out yet?). They all have the ability to shrug off Debuffs faster than usual. This makes it much harder for Yondu to suppress their Power Gain, and makes his Bleeds do less damage.
  • Daredevil
    • The Daredevil matchup is the down-side to have Projectile Attacks in your basic attacks. Yondu has to be very careful to avoid using one of his Yaka Arrow attacks as Daredevil will Evade them just like any other projectile. (Hint: Other than his Special Attacks, they’re all Light hits, so it’s possible to avoid using them).
