Why Is Yor’s Codename Thorn Princess in Spy x Family Yor Forger

Formerly known as Yor Briar, Yor Forger seems to be an ordinary clerk at Berlint City Hall. What people don’t know is that she is also a Garden assassin and uses the codename "Thorn Princess." But out of all the names she could use, why did Yor choose "Thorn Princess" as her codename in Spy x Family?

The name is usually used by her employer whenever she gets a new mission.


So far in the anime, we still don’t know the full concept of her job aside from the fact that she gets information about her target and finishes her task immediately.

While there is no official explanation yet from Spy x Family creator Tatsuya Endo, some fans assume that the reason Yor uses the codename "Thorn Princess" is because of the weapons she uses.


During her missions, Yor uses thorn-like weapons to get the job done. These slim cylindrical weapons look like awls.

To eliminate her target, she uses these weapons to thrash and stab them. At first glance, the weapons look like thorns which might explain her chosen name.

To complete her look, Yor wears a fitting black dress that showcases her cleavage and shoulders. She also wears a rose choker and some rose patterns to complement the “thorn” theme of her name.

As the Thorn Princess, Yor has shown a lot of strengths. An assassin’s job is not easy and requires immense strength for her to eliminate her target smoothly. This is why it isn't surprising that Yor has almost superhuman physical abilities.


She can pierce a human skull using her thorn, throw a ball to knock out trees, and even crush someone just by using her raw strength.

There was even an instance when she was able to graze Loid’s chin when no one has ever done that to him since he was a trainee.

Yor is also agile and fast. She can jump and land perfectly even while wearing heels. She has also shown her remarkable quick reflexes as seen in her missions and even at home.

Her durability and stamina are also unlike any other as she can withstand a gunshot wound and go home safely after.

Expectedly, Yor is also trained in hand-to-hand combat with her kicks as her biggest strength.

Her intelligence and intuition help her strategize the fastest and safest way to finish her job too. Her knowledge of the human body showcases how good she is at being an assassin as well.


The Thorn Princess also has a high tolerance for poison, which is helpful in her missions and line of work.

Overall, Yor is the perfect assassin, and her codename emphasizes the fact that she is not someone people should mess with.
