Ulrich Stern is a character from Code Lyoko and is one of the main protagonists, commonly labeled by fans as the unofficial main character. He is a member of the Lyoko Warriors who have saved the world quite literally over 100 times in the virtual realm known as Lyoko, along with being a highly capable athlete, martial artist, swordsmen (both single and dual-bladed) and bike rider.
Powers and Stats
Tier: 10-A, Possibly 9-C | At least 8-C, possibly higher
Name: Ulrich Stern
Origin: Code Lyoko
Age: At least 12 or 13 at the BoS, likely 17 or 18 at EoS
Classification: Teenager, Lyoko Warrior, Kadic Academy Student
Attack Potency: Athlete level (A star athlete and the physically strongest Lyoko Warrior), possibly Street level (Has physically damaged possessed beings who are clearly above human limitations) | At least Building level (Consistently fends off Megatanks, whose attacks can destroy buildings of this size and obliterate entire pathways, albeit temporarily and with high difficulty), possibly higher (Killed the Kolossus which heavily dwarfs Towers and Plateaus, but this may be an outlier)
Speed: Athletic Human (Is a star soccer player) | At least Superhuman movement speed with Relativistic+ reactions and combat speed (Consistently dodges and deflects XANA's monsters' attacks, who are explicitly described to be equipped with lasers, Can run up walls and on water without falling or sinking)
Lifting Strength: Likely Athlete level | At least Superhuman (Has stopped attacks from many of XANA's monsters, including Megatanks)
Striking Strength: Athlete Class, possibly Street Class | At least Building Class
Durability: Likely Street Level (Tanked an indirect hit from a giant teddy bear [seriously] that previously busted a wall down seemingly casually.) | Building level (Can withstand attacks from most of XANA's monsters, many of whom are capable of destroying large structures like boulders, and is only instantly devirtualized if struck with beams as powerful as a Megatank's or by continuous fire, and sometimes even tanking the latter on rare occasion)
Stamina: High (Can run across long distances without getting tired)
Range: Extended Melee Range with his katanas. Several dozen meters with his overbike's torpedos.
Standard Equipment: Twin Katanas, his Overbike, a motorcycle that moves at speeds comparable to his Super-Sprint ability and is equipped with torpedoes.
Intelligence: Higher than one would think, though not exceptional. Ulrich is the most offensively-minded of the Lyoko Warriors, preferring to run circles around his opponents with Super-Sprint before going for the kill. He is the only member of the team with actual martial arts training, being proficient in swordsmanship and is trained in Penchak Silat, a martial art from Indonesia (mastering it to the point where he could block blades bare-handed). As a result, he is most comfortable in close combat and can compensate for a lack of range by being precise enough with his parries to block laserfire. Despite failing academically, he is a quick thinker, taunting a polymorphic clone to goad it into close range so he can finish it. While his first response to a fight can vary between cavalier and relaxed to rushing in, when faced with someone equal to or stronger than him, he can show a very clever tactical side to back up his skills, whether disarming them of their weapon (both with his hands and katanas), exploiting overconfidence, or making creative use of his clones.
Weaknesses: Ulrich is only a normal, if athletic, human in the real world and is thus far more vulnerable, His katanas will quickly break if forced to withstand powerful attacks like a Megatank blast, His clones will dissipate after taking a single hit, He sometimes suffers from vertigo and thus becomes dizzy if forced to climb significant heights.
- Super Sprint: Ulrich is able to run at speeds comparable to his teammates' vehicles, allowing him to run circles around his opponents and appearing as a blur to even his allies.
- Triplicate: Ulrich generates two clones of himself that can replicate all of his abilities aside from producing more clones. While they dissipate after a single hit, they are just as strong and fast as him, allowing him to coordinate attacks from multiple directions to trap his foes.
- Triangulate: Ulrich and his clones stand around his target in a triangle formation before rapidly running towards each others positions, trapping the target in the process. However, the true purpose of the ability is to disorient the target and force them to take the time to find the real Ulrich, allowing him to use their moment of hesitation to launch a sneak attack for a decisive blow.
