DescriptionEditAs of "Lab Rat", Yumi is 14 years old. She was the last one to join the Lyoko Warriors at the beginning. She was told everything by Ulrich. She is in the 9th grade, but the rest of the Lyoko Warriors are in the 8th grade. In "Echoes" Yumi and Ulrich become a couple, before the last "Return To The Past".
Yumi usually talks to Jeremie about her feelings about Sissi, Ulrich, and the others, as seen in Logbook.Yumi likes wearing black, and all her clothes (and her hair) are that color. Basically its the american goth look, black sweater, black pants, and black boots. Her season 4 outfit is like her sports clothes. Dark gray blouse, gray pants. She wears the same boots as in season 1-3. She is of Japanese descent, and even did a cultural report at school on her homeland in The Girl of the Dreams, bringing in some traditional samurai armor (she calls it "something that has been in my family for centuries"). She also sometimes integrates Japanese words into her speech, which only Ulrich and Odd can understand (once in Exploration and again in Vertigo). Yumi is the only student not boarding at Kadic. She lives with her parents and her younger brother, Hiroki, in a house not too far from Kadic, as she walks to and from the school.
Yumi's Lyoko attire is modeled after a Japanese geisha. She is the leader of the group in the virtual world, often jumping in to save the day at the last moments. It has been shown she is quite athletic in Lyoko, often leaping high into the "air" before throwing her Tessen Fans, her primary weapons. In Lyoko, she can also use telekinesis to disable her foes, usually be dropping virtual rocks on them. She is easily exhausted by this mode of defense, however. In Double Take Yumi's outfit changes so that she wears a pink and purple body suit with flowered shoulder pads, she no longer has the geisha makeup on however she has two strange pill shaped objects above her eyebrows, her fans now appear and disappear at her will (as long as they are in her hands) rather than concealed behind the yellow bow on her back.
On Earth, it has been shown that Yumi is an excellent fighter. It seems she is skilled in various forms of oriental martial arts, including Pencak Silat, which she practices with Ulrich, as she fights her clone bravely in Image Problem, and is quite strong despite her physical build. She is also quite fast in the real world, known to even outrun lasers from military satellites. She is also quite persuasive, as she often convinces teachers to let her go during a XANA attack.
Being mature and intelligent, Yumi usually isn't bothered by Sissi's rude comments, and has been known to understand Herb's plight and motives, as seen in The Robots. She doesn't have a strong opinion of the other students, although she has a good relationship with Jim(why is unclear), and is Ulrich's best friend. Yumi is also a good student.

- Yumi seems to know CPR as she was about to do it on Ulrich in Marabounta. However she may have forget since in Common Interest when she sees Aelita have another cardiac arrest she does nothing. This is strange because Aelita has stated that once they were at the pool and she drowned and Yumi gave her CPR by compressing her chest up and down.
