YUri a genre (or a collection of overlapping genres) distinguished by tropes and stereotypes. The term "yuri" is sufficiently strongly associated with those tropes and stereotypes that some Japanese lesbian manga fans use a different term, like "bian" (short for lesbian), "Onna x Onna" ("women x women"), or "Onna-doushi" ("women together") for works which are actually by/for lesbian women. Yuri is commonly an idealized and unrealistic portrayal of lesbian relationships, and is not representative of actual LGBTQ+(Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, the plus sign standing for "et cetera") culture and experiences, owing in part to its high {{Fluff}} content.

* Yuri for men, "{{seinen}} yuri", tends to emphasize sweetness, femininity, girlishness, innocence, purity, and {{Moe}} generally. It usually has a very romanticized view of what it's like to be a teenage girl. This is in contrast to the standard GirlOnGirlIsHot scenarios (lustful women making out with each other for the viewer's delectation, often mixed with heterosexual content in {{fanservice}}-driven shows) which are usually not considered yuri. Men's yuri typically fetishizes femininity and youthfulness and rarely focuses on long-standing relationships or adult characters, much less LGBTQ culture and social issues.
* Yuri for girls, "{{shoujo}} yuri", may also be hyperfeminine and "pure" but may feature some degree of genderbending or crossdressing, with the {{bifauxnen}} in a more traditionally male role. In either case, it's usually focused on fantasies of female solidarity, idealized femininity and gender transgression, not with lesbian identity, culture or actual life in Japan.

* "Background yuri", a new type of yuri gaining a foothold in Japan. These mangas portray female protagonists (usually {{Action Girl}}s) in lasting lesbian relationships, without actually being ''about'' these relationships. Though this element has the status that a RomanceArc in non-romantic fiction, such mangas are classified as yuri in addition to whatever genres they primarily belong to.

In yuri, you'll most likely find relationships which play on TomboyAndGirlyGirl or SempaiKouhai dynamics. The first usually emulates a heterosexual couple, while the latter emphasises the difference in maturity between the girls. TeacherStudentRomance is also found, but less commonly than the other two.

* ''VisualNovel/KindredSpiritsOnTheRoof'' is a light-hearted, SliceOfLife yuri visual novel based around a ghost lesbian couple recruiting a girl who can see them into helping bring together a number of other potential lesbian couples at their school. Unlike most yuri visual novels, this one feels much more aimed towards women: the art and character design style is more realistic and resembles fashion art more than {{Moe}}, and the game doesn't shy away from labeling the relationships as homosexual and dealing with issues like subtle homophobia.

* In TheNewTens, a new type of yuri has been gaining foothold in Japan: "background yuri". These mangas portray female protagonists (usually {{Action Girl}}s) in lasting lesbian relationships, without actually being ''about'' these relationships. Although essentially the same as a traditional RomanceArc in non-romantic fiction, such mangas are classified as yuri in addition to whatever genres they primarily belong to.

In the past, a disproportionate amount of yuri stories have [[BuryYourGays ended tragically]] or [[HideYourLesbians inconclusively]], but this is changing as more fictional couples are allowed to have happy, committed, and {{canon}} endings.

In yuri, you'll most likely find relationships that play on TomboyAndGirlyGirl or SempaiKouhai dynamics. The first usually emulates a heterosexual couple, while the latter emphasises the difference in maturity between the girls. TeacherStudentRomance is also found, but less commonly than the other two.

This is the genre; couple-specific examples should only be listed below if they're the focus of the series. For yuri-style couples (and unrequited crushes) in other genres, see TokenYuriGirls. Note also that RomanticTwoGirlFriendship (that is, when the yuri relationship doesn't last and the girls involved end up with boys) is a completely different trope. Also see: SlashFic, EveryoneIsGay, and SchoolgirlLesbians.

The [[DistaffCounterpart Spear Counterpart]] of this genre are: {{Yaoi}} (the explicit version of BL) or Shounen-ai/Shonen-ai (the pg-13 version) both targeted towards women, and the BaraGenre, which is targeted towards gay men.
