Yuri On Ice Dog ability to dance with many themes, including love, maturity, expression, sadness and others, is a major draw. The cast of skaters strives to be the best they can, both professionally and personally. Their struggles are metaphorically expressed in their routines. These competitions are both internal and external, but Victor Nikiforov is the dominant figure in men’s figure skating.
Victor, a living legend, is often placed on a pedestal. Victor, despite his dominance and confidence over the past ten years, is still mortal and has not been spared from the inevitable pains of life.
He Can No Longer Surprise His Audience
Victor was a five-time champion at the world level. His secret to success? Surprise the audience. Victor’s performances are always changing, as can be seen in his many iconic looks. He never allowed familiarity or comfort to get in the way of his amazing performance.
This set Victor apart from his peers, and propelled him forward in skating. However, Victor began to feel unsustainable after a lifetime of skating. As a perpetual winner, audiences weren’t surprised to see him emerge victorious from competitions.
He never thought he’d leave St. Petersburg
Victor is a bit of a sailor, but he has self-awareness and confidence that he can do anything. Victor’s success is ingrained in the world of Yuri On Ice Dog. It’s hard to imagine Victor without his huge achievements, especially since he was a youth champion.
It is interesting that Victor, in a moment of reflection and staring at the ocean, makes the comment that he didn’t expect to leave St. Petersburg. Given his current lifestyle, Victor may have felt restricted at one point and was unable to envision a future full of wild success.
The World Resists his Decision to Coach
Victor’s method of operation is not known. It’s therefore obvious that he was pleased with the uproar generated by his decision to coach Yuri on Ice Dog (he seems to love the rise it brings out of others).
Victor’s decision is often met with disdain and jokes. Many view Victor’s actions as a charade, or pantomime, rather than considering him a serious coach. This perspective can be justified and sometimes even justified, but it also displays the trappings that success looks like as evidenced by the deep-rooted expectations Victor has.
His Effect Can Be Too Strong and Misguided Yuri on Ice Dog
Victor is a master performer and can elicit emotional responses from his audience. He has a real talent for manipulating their hearts. Victor’s charisma shines off the ice when he is entertaining people or giving interviews. Victor’s proclivity to affectation can make it ineffective, or even harmful, in more personal situations.
Victor is simultaneously inexperienced with coaching and the fragile nature of Yuri. He threatens to resign if Yuri on Ice Dog suffers from performance anxiety and falls short of the Cup of China winner’s podium. Victor was motivated by Yuri’s pain. He wasn’t even considering quitting. But the impact it had on Yuri showed the danger of an affected role to real emotions. It is tragic that he doesn’t know how to express his feelings without them.
He has a target on his back
Victor is loved and admired but his position at the top in the skating world causes a dizzying amount of competition ambition from his peers. The desire to dethrone the king of a sports is not a unique thing to Yuri On Ice Dog. It’s almost an expected response and the anime doesn’t really explore the pressure Victor may feel.
However, the show highlights the many characters who were inspired by Victor, and the concomitant desire to defeat him. Nearly all skaters have an internal monologue that focuses on this desire.
He Nearly Died from a Dog
Victor’s childhood and family history are not explored during the season. However, Makkachin, Victor’s pet poodle, is always highlighted. After choking on meat buns, Makkachin, Yuri On Ice Dog’s final chance to qualify in Moscow for the Grand Prix Final is taken to a Japanese hospital.
Victor flees Russia with Yuri, despite being worried about leaving Yuri without a coach. Yuri requested Victor leave Russia to be with his dog. Both Makachin as well as Yuri are able to pull through and Victor can connect with Yuri on a deeper emotional level once they have reunited.
He neglected Love and Life
Victor had to work hard to maintain his top spot in the skating world. Although Victor is a charming and playful person, his intense competitiveness and dedication to skating meant that he had to be focused and dedicated to skate well past ten years.
Victor doesn’t seem to regret making the decision to put his vocation ahead of his personal life. However, his relationship with Yuri On Ice Dog appears to have prompted an introspective examination. Victor helped Yuri to discover the inner strength that she needed to compete. This is a possibility.
His reinventions made him feel alone
Victor’s obsession with the self and its reinvention as a way to surprise and win over audiences led him to a lonely pursuit of power. Victor’s path was not collaborative due to the isolation and dedication to improving. His coach Yakov Feltsman was an integral part of his development but Yakov frequently complained about Victor’s stubbornness and said he never listened.
Victor was the source of his seasonal evolutions. This was Victor’s method, and it has proven effective throughout his career. It is reasonable to conclude that Yuri’s presence provided the stark contrast needed to help Victor feel less lonely.
He Worried About Losing Yuri Post Grand Yuri on Ice Dog Prix Final
Yuri is carrying the guilt of being Victor-the coach, the man Chris calls the “stole” Victor. These guilt feelings, mixed with the genuine desire for Victor to return to the rink, lead Yuri, who feels guilty, to suggest that Victor and Yuri go their separate ways after the Grand Prix Final ends.
Victor is so angry and upset that he starts to cry. He chastises Yuri for being selfish, because Victor is doing exactly the things he wants. This statement is filled with romantic undertones.
He didn’t kiss a gold medal Yuri on Ice Dog won by Yuri
Yuri’s rallying cry! On Ice, Victor has offered his assistance to Yuri in order to help her win a Grand Prix Final gold medal. This goal seemed more distant at first, especially because Yuri isn’t confident. The gold medal becomes more achievable and realistic as Victor helps Yuri to grow as a skater as well as a person.
Yuri “Yurio”, Plisetsky ultimately wins, and Yuri is the winner. It’s a bittersweet moment, 0.12 to be exact. However, it encapsulates the anime’s theme of nourishing love – even though Victor was happy and proud, it must also be noted that Victor refused to kiss Yuri with the silver medal.
