Yu: Haha, guess I can't afford to stand still. Let's see just how strong we can become.
Partner with Chie
Partner with Yukiko Yukiko: Did I manage to show you how reliable I can be? I want to help you out more, Narukami-kun.
Yu: You were perfect. When I fight with you, I don't hesitate at all. If you weren't here, it wouldn't have gone so well.
Partner with Yukiko

Kanji: Hell yeah! It's a real honor to hear that from you, Senpai. I'm gonna keep trying to do better and better.
Partner with Kanji

Partner with Naoto (Shirogane)
Partner with Aegis Yu: We've been through a lot of tough battles together. There's no way we'd lose a fight like that.
Aegis: Narukami-san. When I am with you, a feeling of nostalgia washes over me... It reminds me of someone.
Partner with Aegis
Partner with Labrys Labrys: Even if my body is a machine, all of ya treat me like a normal person. That's what lets me trust everyone and fight.
Yu: We're tied with a bond. You are who you are, Labrys, and that's all that matters.
Partner with Labrys
Partner with Ragna Ragna:Look, I don't give a damn about the "strength of your bonds," but if you keep your eyes forward, I'll watch your back.
Yu: Our worlds may be different, but our bonds are shared... If you fight by my side, Ragna-san, I'll cut us a path!
Partner with Ragna ラグナ: 絆の力なんざ知ったこっちゃねぇが、テメェは前だけ向いてな。
その背中、俺が護ってやる。
悠: 世界が違っても『絆』は生まれる……
ラグナさんが背中を護ってくれるなら、
俺は進むべき道を斬り開きます!
Partner with Hakumen Hakumen: The power to protect those you care for -- is that how you define righteousness? Then do not fear, do not let pride consume you, and you are sure to find your path.
Yu: The way you live has taught me a lot. I will walk a path without regrets, with my friends at my side.
Partner with Hakumen

Partner with Es Es: The strength of your bonds... Do you mean to say that your connection with others influences how you fight?

Partner with Es
Partner with Hyde Yu: The "EXS," huh... I can't see any limits to its power... Just how strong is it?

Partner with Yuzuriha Yuzuriha: You passed the test! I can rest assured that you'll only use your powers for good!

Yu: (...How do so many people know that nickname? Is the Midnight Channel involved somehow...?)
Partner with Ruby
Partner with Weiss Yu: Your dynamic movement and carefully chosen techniques really saved me. The Schnee family must be something special.
Weiss: It's certainly something... We'll meet again, but until then, farewell.
