Itachi Uchiha is also a prodigy and a cool, aloof character who keeps everyone else at arm's length no matter what. However, he is also secretly a hero who had killed the traitorous Uchihas to protect his home village, and he had always loved his brother Sasuke and wanted to protect him. When viewing Itachi either as a sinister villain or a loving brother, Naruto fans may realize that plenty of other anime characters are quite similar to him.
With his hairstyle, younger brother status, and melodramatic ways, Yuri Briar might feel more reminiscent of Sasuke Uchiha on the outside, but his character arc makes him more like Itachi in some ways. Like Itachi, he deeply loves his sole surviving family member, his older sister Yor, but otherwise, he's a bit twisted.
Yuri also joined a villainous organization, that being the SSS, or Ostania's brutal secret police. That's like Ostania's version of the Akatsuki, and Yuri isn't afraid to tear people apart in the name of protecting his nation or his sibling. Yuri looks and acts like a villain, but deep down, he has some goodness in him, too.
