The Death Emperor is the first monster that Yuri can Fuse into as well as the only mandatory fusion. After the events at Kuihai Tower, Yuri flies to Blue Castle where he is locked in the Castle Tower by Keith Valentine.
In Blue Castle, Alice, Zhuzhen and Keith must fight Yuri – he transforms into Death Emperor for this battle.
Since he is Dark type, Alice should use Blessed Light and consider casting Holy Edge on Keith. Zhuzhen should be the primary healer and keep using Nourishing potion to heal the party. When not healing is required he should use Corpse Arm or Fury Serpent offensively. Keith should primarly attack physically, although if he needs healing it would be worth using Drain Touch or Blood Sucker depending on the extent of the damage.
