Yuko is a childhood friend of Haruo, who grew up with him following the death of his parents. Her slim and delicate form belies her heightened physical ability. Yuko is also skilled in the design and remodeling of weapons.
Yuko, a sergeant aboard the Aratrum and member of the Powered Suit team, watched as the Landing Ship carrying her grandfather to the surface of Tau Ceti-e exploded in the atmosphere. When she learned that Captain Haruo Sakaki, who had also been raised by Yuko's grandfather from childhood, was to be part of the mission to reclaim Earth from Godzilla, she readily joined the mission. Yuko was ordered by Colonel Eliott Leland to supervise Haruo, who was still on parole following his attempt to stop the landing mission to Tau-e, while they were exploring the Earth's surface with Martin Lazzari. Yuko pulled Haruo aside and mentioned that the Central Committee claimed it safely removed all of the explosives Haruo had threatened to set off over Tau-e, but she found they were all unaccounted for. She questioned whether the Central Committee had used the explosives to blow up the Landing Ship, as Haruo had even said the Committee wanted to reduce the elderly population aboard the Aratrum. Haruo told her he wanted to believe that the Committee wasn't that corrupt, and blamed Godzilla for stealing humanity's ability to trust in each other.
The company was attacked by a flock of Servum, leaving their Landing Ships crippled and forcing Leland to call off the mission. Yuko piloted one of the damaged Landing Ships through the Tanzawa Pass, bound for an area where the company could rendezvous with the others and return to the Aratrum. However, Godzilla appeared near the pass and began approaching the company. Yuko tried to steer the ship away from Godzilla, but due to the damage it had sustained it began to lose altitude and demonstrate risk of explosion. Yuko and Professor Martin escaped the ship when it crashed, and watched as Haruo attacked Godzilla with a Hover Bike in an attempt to make him deploy his asymmetrically permeable shield. Martin said that the Bike's guns were not strong enough to make Godzilla deploy his shield, but Leland managed to make Godzilla use the shield by blasting him with a Multipodal Battery. Godzilla promptly killed Leland with his atomic breath, but Martin and Mulu-Elu Galu-Gu were able to pinpoint the location of Godzilla's EMP organ in his dorsal plates. Yuko was shocked when Metphies designated full command of the operation to Haruo, but was inspired by his impassioned speech to the remaining troops. Yuko took part in the operation against Godzilla, piloting a Powered Suit and planting an EMP Probe inside of Godzilla's body. Yuko was forced off of Godzilla just before the accumulated electromagnetic energy caused him to explode. Yuko was overjoyed when she saw that Haruo had survived the battle as well.
However, it turned out that the Godzilla they had killed was simply a smaller offspring which had grown from the original Godzilla's cells, with the now-300 meter original Godzilla emerging from a nearby mountain. Haruo ordered everyone to retreat, and Yuko tried to escape in a Hover Bike. Godzilla destroyed many of the escaping units with a super oscillatory wave projected from his mouth and a shockwave produced by his tail.
