|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #261|
Yukata, alongside Matsuri and Mikoshi, is shown to have been set to take part in the Chūnin Exams, which would be held in Konohagakure and Sunagakure. Once entering the exams, Matsuri and her team-mates were randomly split into different rooms to take the written test. Yukata was sent to room 3. On a monitor, Shikamaru Nara, as proctor, explained that everyone only needs to answer one question on the test, but their combined score with their team-mates will determine if they pass or fail the exam as they need exactly 100 points to pass. While everyone was struggling to find a way to contact their team members, Yukata couldn't even solve the written problems themselves. After time is up, Shikamaru revealed a bonus question, asking which team-mate you would leave to be a decoy, noting that while the answer had to be unanimous, the person picked would be disqualified. She, like her team-mates, left the question unanswered, and ultimately her team passed the first round. However, a preliminary round had to be held to lessen the many participants there were which involved a race to Suna where only the first 30 teams to arrive at the destination would qualify for the second phase. At first, Yukata was baffled on why everyone was running until her team-mates told her, pulling her along.
Ultimately, her team were among the first 30 teams to make it. During dinner, she was upset at the food catastrophe and joined her team-mates in the fight that commenced between the genin in the room. The next day, the second exam proctor, Temari, announced the start of the second round taken place within Demon Desert.
Yukata, like Matsuri and many other Suna kunoichi, has great admiration for their current Kazekage — Gaara. This was seen during the Fourth Shinobi World War when she and a few others were seen gushing over the Kazekage's speech to the masses. Yukata has shown to be rather clueless at times, such as when she had to be lectured about the basics of nature transformation, when she didn't know the current Tsuchikage, or when she didn't understand that her fellow genin were trying to figure out how to answer the real problem during the written test of the Chūnin Exams (contacting the other team members to coordinate the solving of the questions to reach a total of 100 points), while she herself had problems to even figure out the answers to the questions themselves, which were rated to be very easy by the other genin. She has a carefree disposition, seen when she wonders about Naruto's presence on the battlefield even with a giant threat, such as the Third Raikage, being right in front of her, or when she remains jubilant while the genin around her are growing desperate about the complicated test during the Chūnin Exams. She is also very optimistic, assuming that she and her team-mates will become chūnin even before the exam begins.
Yukata is a fair-skinned girl with long, dark hair and large, brown eyes framed by noticeable eyelashes. She wears the standard attire of the Sunagakure shinobi with a flak jacket, a dark skirt, two arm-guards and the forehead protector of the Allied Shinobi Forces. During the Chūnin Exams, she wore a grey chest protector over a short plain shirt, revealing her bare stomach. She already wore her arm-guards and the skirt. Additionally, she wore black stockings and a Sunagakure forehead protector.
Yukata seems to have some skill in Wind Release techniques, having joined other Wind Release users to battle the reincarnated Third Raikage. However, Temari states that she isn't a long-distance user.
Fourth Shinobi World War: Confrontation
Yukata was placed in the Fourth Division of the Allied Shinobi Forces and was seen gushing over Gaara after he addressed the alliance and was able to rally the shinobi into uniting as one army to defeat Akatsuki. Later, she is seen with Temari, Shikamaru, Chōji, and Matsuri. Shikamaru discusses about the topic of kekkei tōta, where Yukata had problems to understand the explanation. Soon, she is seen with Matsuri, lending towels to Gaara, telling him that he must conserve his strength. However, to their dismay, he tells them to give them to Ōnoki instead. While they didn't know him, Ōnoki declares that he is the Tsuchikage, much to their surprise.
The next day, the Fourth Division makes their move on the reincarnated Kage and Yukata and Matsuri join other Wind Release users in subduing the Third Raikage. Matsuri asks Temari their next move after Naruto could not damage the Raikage. Yukata asks who Naruto is and Matsuri explains he is the hero of Konoha who defeated the Akatsuki leader Pain. Annoyed with their discussions, Temari tells the two kunoichi to keep their distance. After Naruto defeated the Raikage, Yukata and Matsuri were celebrating the victory. She is later seen escorting the Tsuchikage to a medical tent. Yukata was later seen teasing Temari about her former acquaintance Daimaru and that Temari might be love with someone else, which she denies embarrassed.
Fourth Shinobi World War: Climax
Yukata was last seen when Madara Uchiha arrived alongside Mū on the battlefield. It is unknown if she survived the following confrontation and the final attack that wiped out most of the Fourth Division.
- "Yukata" (浴衣) literally means "bathing clothes", and is the name of a casual kimono worn in the summer.
- When she made her début, Yukata wasn't seen wearing shoulder guards with her flak jacket, but she has been wearing them afterwards.
