|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #261|
Yukata, like Matsuri and many other Suna kunoichi has great admiration for their current Kazekage: Gaara. This is seen during the Fourth Shinobi World War when she and a few others were seen gushing over his speech to the masses.
Yukata is a fair-skinned girl with long, black hair and large, brown eyes as well. She wears the standard attire of the Sunagakure shinobi complete with flak jacket and the forehead protector of the Allied Shinobi Forces.
Shinobi World War Arc
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. 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. She is later seen escorting the Tsuchikage to a medical tent.
- 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.
- She is shown to participate in the Fourth Shinobi World War, despite the fact that she probably would not have been allowed to as she is very young.
