Of the little that has been seen of her, she seems to be a caring and loyal person. She has also been described as someone that puts her all into whatever she does and enjoys watching the moon, which might be a pun on the meaning of her name.
Yūgao has purple violet, straight hair reaching down to her waist and chocolate brown eyes. She also wears reddish-purple lipstick. As an ANBU member, Yūgao wears a porcelain mask resembling a cat with three red stripes - one vertical stripe on the forehead and two horizontal stripes, one on each cheek. She also wears the standard ANBU uniform, consisting of black and grey armour, metal arm guards and a katana strapped to her back. She has the signature ANBU tattoo on her right shoulder.
Though her skills are yet to be displayed in the manga, as ANBU, Yūgao is a highly skilled kunoichi. She is also presumably skilled in kenjutsu as she carries one of the standard katana of the group. In the anime, Yūgao was assigned to the Logistical Support and Medical Division, implying that she has at least capable medical skills. She also displayed great skill and efficiency with basic techniques such as the Generic Sealing Technique which she used to seal away corpses of fallen shinobi. She was also noted to be a skilled sensor-type shinobi. When her division was attacked, Sukui explicitly requested that she join the team that would retrieve the scroll that had been stolen from the camp.

Invasion of Pain Arc
In the anime, Yūgao was one of four ANBU protecting Tsunade as she was using Katsuyu to tend to the villagers.

After Pain unleashed a large-scale Shinra Tensei and decimated the entire village, however, she was sent flying away, along with Tsunade and the other ANBU.
Shinobi World War Arc
In the anime, Yūgao was one of the ninja who were working for the Logistical Support and Medical Division. She was responsible for the safekeeping of shinobi corpses which carry valuable intel such as their kekkei genkai. She would later on confess that the only reason she had left the ANBU was because of the loss of her lover, Hayate Gekkō. During the corpse infiltration, Yūgao would meet once again a reincarnated Hayate, who was forced to steal the KIA scroll. Much to Yūgao's dismay, she would later on be forced to procure the stolen scroll from Kabuto Yakushi's minions..
