How Yeager joined the Tourney

Yeager is the leader of the Leviathan's Claw guild, which specializes in selling weapons and hoplon blastia, and he attained this position by murdering the previous owner. He is also a father figure to his orphan underlings, Gauche and Droite. Sly and scheming, Yeager often manipulates events to meet his own goals and frequently tosses moral concerns aside for the sake of profit.

Before Alexei Dinoia's death, Yeager is sometimes seen arguing with Alexander von Cumore, as well as helping him to escape. After his and and his benefactor's death, Yeager's underlings explain to the group that he fought to protect them because Alexei discovered he was paying the debts of the orphanage where he adopted the girls. Yeager has an indirect connection with Raven, having been romantically involved with Casey, a now-deceased female knight, who had also been dear to Raven in the past. Yeager is in possession of Casey's prized weapon, a bow, until Gauche and Droite surrender the weapon to Raven in return for Casey's compact mirror. Yeager and Raven were also both subjects in Alexei's experiments with blastia, and like Raven, Yeager has a Hermes blastia keeping him alive.

While holding a big weapons sale, Yeager is spotted by a hearted combagal named Donkizari. Yeager offers her blastia guns, but is turned down.

How to unlock

For both methods, you must fight Yeager at Caer Bocram. Alternatively, you can avoid clashing with him by wishing for him from Shenron, or purchasing him for 600 Smash coins in the Smash Store. After defeating Yeager, wishing for him from Shenron, or purchasing him from the Smash Store, the announcer will say "Someone else has joined the Tourney!" after a Smash Ball appears on the lower-right corner of the screen with a message saying "You can now use the Leviathan's Claw guild leader and arms dealer, Yeager!" He will be seen left of Bayek, right of Chacha and below Gladstone.
