When Terra Branford comes to plea to the espers for help in defeating the Empire, Yura leads a band of espers out the Sealed Gate. They go berserk, and attack Kefka Palazzo, who was sent to ambush Terra and her friends at the Sealed Gate. The espers attack the Blackjack as it is trying to escape, and then attack Vector, the imperial capital. Yura leads the espers to the Espers' Gathering Place where Yura is found by Terra, and senses that she is not dangerous. She convinces the espers that the Empire is willing to talk peace, and Yura represents the espers in negotiations with General Leo Cristophe of the Empire. However, the peace agreement is a trap set by Kefka and Gestahl to acquire more magicite. Kefka invades Thamasa, the town where the negotiations are being held, and kills Yura and the rest of the espers.
- In the Dawn of Souls, 20th Anniversary and iOS remakes of the original Final Fantasy, Yura is one of the automatic names the player can choose for the Red Mage Job.
