- Megami Ibunroku Persona: Playable Character
- Megami Ibunroku Persona (Manga): Major Character
- Persona 2: Innocent Sin: Playable Character
- Persona 2: Eternal Punishment: Minor Character
- Persona 3: Who's Who guest
In Megami Ibunroku Persona, Yukino wears the female St. Hermelin uniform, though she has a noticeably longer skirt than the other students. She wears her hair short, a carry over from her days as a delinquent.
In the Persona 2 duology, Yukino wears a gray jacket which features ornaments of "armor" motif over a black shirt, and yellow sweat pants. Her hair has grown out, becoming somewhat curly, and she wears a gray hat branded "Ostrich" (as a reflection of this, her default head wear is called "Ostrich Beret").
She was an ex-Saeko Takami. Though she hasn't shed her yankī looks just yet, Yukino is well-recognized and trusted by the student body, acting as a mother figure of sorts to her friends.who was reformed thanks to the efforts of her teacher
In Persona 2: Innocent Sin she is still dearly holding the memory of her former teacher Ms. Saeko, who rescued her from a life of crime, and due to that Yukino is compelled to do the same for another student who seems like she is about to embark down the same path, Anna Yoshizaka. She harbors a deep-seated crush for Fujii, and tries to disguise her tomboy traits in his presence.
Megami Ibunroku PersonaEdit
- "Trusted by everyone, she's like an older sister to all the students."
- —PSP introduction
In the beginning, Yukino was one of the students present while her classmates played the Persona game, and thus ends up unconscious at the conclusion of the game. As a result she follows the party to the Mikage Hospital for an examination. While there, demons attack, and she fights her way out of the hospital with her classmates. Upon reaching the school, Yukino leaves the party, and does not return in the SEBEC quest.
In Revelations: Persona, her name was changed to Yuki, and she was only in the party during the first part of the game, as the Snow Queen Quest was removed. She was also the only character not Americanized like the rest of the cast.
Personas used in the mangaEdit
A list of Personas used by Yukino in the manga.
- Vesta: Yukino's Initial Persona, gained while trying to defend herself from demons at the Mikage Hospital.
- Brigid: Used to defend Naoya, Maki, Brown, Nanjo and Elly against a projection of the Snow Queen by using her Azure Cessation spell.
- Durga: Awakened during the fight against Queen Ashura. Durga was the one who dealt the killing blow with her Wolf Fang attack.
- "Maya's partner and (apprentice) shooter. She does part-time work to pay her way through photography school."
- —Her introduction, Persona 2: Innocent Sin
Yukino is Maya's photographer and partner at "Coolest" magazine. Yukino is currently the apprentice of Shunsuke Fujii, a seasoned photographer who acts as her mentor. She is investigating the Joker incident with her partner, Maya Amano.
Tatsuya's group first meets with Maya and Yukino in the principal's office at Seven Sisters High School. After discovering that Tatsuya's group knows about the rumors, the two join their party and chase after Joker with them. While at Club Zodiac, Yukino meets Anna Yoshizaka and is concerned that she has dropped out. After receiving King Leo's enigmatic hint of the next bombing target from the Aoba Park concert hall, Yukino contacts her alumnus as well as an occult expert, Eriko Kirishima, for help.
There will be two different outcomes of her fate at Caracol; if the player lets her stay with Fujii after his death, Shadow Yukino will appear in the central bridge of Caracol with Anna and the couple defeats three units of Order of the Holy Lance. Anna at this points is seemingly brainwashed by Shadow Yukino and encouraged to live an irresponsible life when Tatsuya's group approaches. After the two are defeated, Shadow Yukino curses Tatsuya for making the wrong choice and leaps the edge of the bridge with Anna to the abyss of unconsciousness and their own deaths. The real Yukino's ego is taken into the abyss as well by Nyarlathotep and will not respond to anything. Philemon then informs the team that Yukino has made a wish to transfer her Persona ability to Jun Kurosu, an ability he lost when he ceased to be Joker.
If the player encourages Yukino to move on after facing Fujii's death, Philemon will grant her her ultimate Persona, Durga. Instead of fighting Shadow Yukino and Anna, the player will defeat three units of Order of the Holy Lance to save Anna. Even after Shadow Yukino shows up, Yukino bravely confronts the shadow and tells the team to leave first to Kurosu's rescue. Yukino will later return with Anna and rejoin the group for one last fight against Angel Joker. After this battle, she voluntarily sacrifices her ability to use a Persona to allow Jun to wield a Persona. She is last seen heading off into the city with Anna to find the Last Battalion.
- "Maya's ex-partner and apprentice. She's not really an employee at Kismet, but an assistant photographer hired by Fujii."
- —Her introduction, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment
Yukino is still working as a photographer at Coolest Magazine. Shortly before the beginning of the game, Yukino is separated from Maya by her boss, and is not her partner anymore. As the events of Innocent Sin do not occur in Eternal Punishment, she still retains her Persona. Presumably after the outbreak of Tenchu armies of the New World Order, she re-awakens her Persona ability to fight, protecting the citizens.

Yukino receives her own musical themes in Megami Ibunroku Persona and Persona 2: Innocent Sin.
Her theme in Megami Ibunroku Persona plays only during the Snow Queen Quest. It was never heard in the North American version of the game, Revelations: Persona, due to the Snow Queen Quest being removed. It reappears in the PSP remake for the Japanese, North American, and European versions of the game.
Her theme in Innocent Sin plays when she introduces the party to her alumna Eriko Kirishima. It is also used in the newscasting in the Eternal Punishment Sumaru TV preview fan disc. The second one subtitled "sad" version plays when she faces Fujii's death.
Before the release of the Japanese PSP remake of Innocent Sin, Shoji Meguro rearranged Yukino's theme as the Christmas special version and was only available for download for a limited time.
- Yukino is possibly the least edited character in the Revelations version of Persona.
- In the remake of Megami Ibunroku Persona, if the player takes the SEBEC quest, there are still a few Snow Queen Quest references from some NPCs. It can be assumed that Yukino is taking the leader/protagonist's role for this part.
- Yukino is currently the tallest female party member in the Persona series at 170cm, Maya Amano and Ann Takamaki being second at 168cm both.
